The freebie we wouldn't take.

August 24th, 2007 at 02:11 am

Normally we do not buy movies that my brother in law has..which in general means we do not buy movies.

Some films we find important enough to have at two houses...Star Wars for example.

Others were acquired before we moved so close or given as gifts, and some we still buy so that the kids can see them, somehow my brother in law with teenage kids doesn't seem to buy veggie tale movies anymore...

But in general we don't buy movies.

And as in some music, we copy what we like well enough to borrow more than once (which isn't much), generally we listen to it in the car and we will not keep originals in the car, so for movies it is also offered...and if you knew how hard it is to get each kid adjusted to not messing with the movies you would understand why!

Then came firefly....we saw it from my brother and were instantly hooked. I sent my husband online fast to find us our own copy, and then one of the movie Serenity. Then we proceeded to pester everyone we knew who made 'copies' of movies to make sure they PAID for firefly.

It is true we are actually Fans...not just 'fan of the movie/show, but capital F - Fans.

Never thought I would say it, I am a tech geek but not a trekie, I am a sci-fi fan but no Darth Vader posters adorn my walls, yet I could not avoid becoming a Fan of Firefly.

Though we have yet to succumb to buying the fan club membership...instead we bought the softest T-shirt emblazoned with 'Firefly'...another thing I have never myself done. I figure if your show needs me to advertise it it must not be any good...except is good enough for me to pay to advertise it....did I mention how soft the shirt was? I have a couple nightshirts that soft, but they are also too thin to wear in public, the firefly one is soft and strong and thick enough that nothing distracts from the 'Firefly' name.....pretty cool shirt.

So have I mentioned Firefly enough? have you seen it? if not you should..

And I would love to hear a recording of 'you can't take the sky from me'........(course the last recording crashed my computer...)

    I loved Firefly. I love anything that comes from the mind of Joss Whedon. DH and I were truly ticked off when it was cancelled because it was way better than everything that stuck around that year. Of course, I also watch anything with Nathan Fillion in it, too. I've been following him around since his soap opera days. He can be the hero, he can be the villian, I don't care, that boy can act!

    Let's see, I have Escape Key singing "Mal's Song," the actual title track, "Hero of Canton" as sung by Adam Baldwin, "I'm Going to See Serenity," and "A Man Named Jayne."

    I also have the special edition. *purrs and pets it* I bought it, even though I own the original, because i NEED the RTam Sessions on something other than my computer., what can I hook you up with? I also have the extended gag reel from the show, tons of interviews, and who knows what else..

    um..yeah, I might be a little bit of a Browncoat.

    Heh, so it isn't just me.

    I actually have the hero of Canton from somewhere online Smile

    Nope, not just you. Firefly swallowed my soul quite a while ago. Within the last year, Ive gotten my principal and a coworker completely hooked too..

    of course, Im pretty sure they don't read fanfiction yet, so my brainwashing is not yet done.

    And seriously, I can upload any of that, if you would like it. Smile

    I would love it I would have to get my husband to explain how to listen to it without it crashing my computer, but if you upload it and show me the link I can get him to show me.


    PS have you heard there is a game based on the firefly world? My husband is trying to talk a group into playing it.

  6. Broken Arrow Says:

    Hmm. I keep hearing that Firefly is good, but... I haven't seen it yet. That or Serenity. I really should.

  7. LuckyRobin Says:

    Yes, you really, really should. It's amazing.

  8. alianora Says:

    I wasnt sure which one you would want, so I uploaded both!

    And yes, I KNOW there's an RPG. My neighbor has it, but with the baby, we havent had a chance to sit down and play it yet. Or even set up characters or anything.

    Ok, so, Im uploading these with sendspace, which means you have to download one at a time, according to their rules.

    Text is and Link is

  10. princessperky Says:

  11. alianora Says:

    sorry for the lateness of this comment. the second oen IS silly! it's Adam himself singing it, and its the easter egg on the Firefly dvds. You have to find it, its hilarious.

    He even wears his hat!
