'These people are mad, I tell you! They're completely bananas!'

For anyone interested in the music for that new Seat Ibiza advert known as both 'Perfection requires a touch of madness' or 'Madhouse' or whatever....

It *isn't* Frontier Pyschiatrist by The Avalanches - not a remix, not the original, nada, zip. Anyone who *does* say it is obviously hasn't heard it since it was out. Song of The Salesman is wrong on this, trust me.

Actually, it's a comissioned piece specifically for SEAT, which they have named as called 'Madhouse'. You won't be able to find it. Give up, and just rant at the advertising company until they finally release it (like the VW advert featuring the remix of 'Singin' in the Rain, which wasn't meant to be released until all the DJs pleaded for it). Sorry.

'Mr. Horrible, Mr. Horrible. Telephone call for Mr. Horrible!' - They Might Be Giants, 'Someone Keeps Moving My Chair'

In case you haven't been in the loop, Joss Whedon's got a project released tomorrow called Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

It's a full budget affair telling the story of evil genius Dr. Horrible (played by Neil Patrick Harris) in his attempts to overthrow the world - much to the chagrin of superhero Captain Hammer (played by Nathan Fillion - ohhhh yes).

(Click here for the trailer)

However, unlike Joss' previous projects:

a) it's a Whedon Bros. affair, so Jed and Zack Whedon are helping on this one;
b) it's being shown completely online; and
c) it's 100% musical (unlike Buffy, which was about 0.69% a musical).

The first episode is being released on the 15th of July, the second on the 17th and the final episode on the 19th of July - but get your skates on! It all goes away again after the 20th!

So check it out at Dr. from the 15th or prepare yourself with the free comic at Dark Horse Presents....
