I'm taking a short break from my usual erudite, hyper-serious, educational diaries about Natural Rights, Economics and cute dog stories.

Instead, here is a piece of 100% pure goofiness and stone-cold genius.

Joss Whedon and friends (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Serenity) put this together in response to the writer's strike.

They wanted to show that they could make high-quality, seriously funny short films without bowing to studio funding and the artistic compromises that come with it.  And they wanted to actually make money off the project, to show that they could reap their just rewards without the studios taking their cut off the top.

Just to make this diary-worth, look here for the "Master Plan".  Then we can have a comment fest on the hyper-serious econmics of Hollywood and how the net changes everything!

Or you can just enjoy an excellent piece of comedy.  But hurry, they're taking the whole thing down on Saturday.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
