Your Geek Culture Update

geekkingSOP.jpgQ: What's geekier than writing a fan song about how you miss watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and posting it on your website?

A: Writing a whole album of songs about Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

That's what Megan Gogerty did, a playwright, performer, and self-described wordsmith. I reported her initial effort on my blog back in February, but what I didn't know was that was only the beginning of her efforts.

IMISSBUFFYCD.jpgHere are a sample of some of the track titles...

Joss Is the Boss (Give Him Your Money)
Kinda Wish D'Hoffryn Was my Boyfriend
Lipstick Wiccans
The Legend of Mr. Gordo
I Didn't Write a Song about Angel
and an updated version of I Miss Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Megan Gogerty, for geekiness above and beyond the call of duty, I give you an extra special big Geek King Seal of Approval.

And while we're on the subject of Joss Whedon and music, don't forget to tune into Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog this week for the world premier of Joss' webcast show starring Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion. The episodes will be up on July 15, 17, and 19 and then will be taken down on July 20. It looks like great fun!

As always, please feel free to send me nominees for the Geek King Seal of Approval. Just because I don't use them right away doesn't mean I don't cherish each and every suggestion. This concludes this royal announcement.


I went to college with Megan Gogerty. What I remember most about her is that she has a heart condition that causes her to faint sporadically throughout the day. Her friends would have to constantly carry her out of class. I always wondered how she would hold a job after college. I guess playwriting won out over lying on the floor with Starbucks spilled all over her face.

Dr. Horrible Act I is up for viewing. Enjoy!
