We *love* the musical episode.  We cut the songs to CD so that we can
listen to them when we want.  Probably a no-no, but *might* qualify
under "fair-use".  Joss Whedon is a genius, no doubt about it.  I dabble
in poetry (http://www.jacob.proffitt.com/Poems.html), so it was kind of
humbling to see what he did on, more or less, a whim.  Beautifully
threaded, multi-faceted stuff.
