Yep, I did a literal dance of joy msg, thankfully the only witness was my sister, who was dancing as well. Mercifully the commercial break ended before it turned into an interpretive dance number.

And Guy, I totally get hurt feelings when family doesn't want to watch with me too.

And I was happy to read that other people share my obsession for promoting higher visibility of all verse-related goods in stores of any manner. I always look in every rental store, book store etc, and "accidentally" place Serenifly stuff right in the line of sight, top of the shelf, you get the idea. Hey just helping people on find the path to enlightenment.

You've bought the Firefly and Serenity DVD's AFTER renting them from NetFlix. Then you bought another set of the same, because you loaned out your first set, haven't gotten them back and missed them too gorram much. Then you bought another set just to give away as a gift. Then you bought and downloaded all of the same from Itunes, simply because they're too cool NOT to have them available on your computer.

I wish I was drinking a mug of mudder's milk instead of this swill that we call beer; the flavor has to be better and I need all of the nutrients that I can get. I'm dreaming of a mudder's smoothy.

It has a name, I call it Vera.

When you sincerely believe that Firefly was the best television show ever aired...

When every time you watch it, you wonder how many more times you can rewatch it and yet still remain amazed by its beauty (and literally shed tears to think that it is gone now)...

When you seriously wonder why everyone doesn't love it as much as you do. I mean, are the vast majority of people morons, or is there something wrong with my eyes and ears?

When every time you see the series or watch the movie, your brain melts down trying to wrap itself around the idea that this delightful fictional world has been relegated to Purgatory by the 'geniuses' in Hollywood, while utter shite like "XXX" and "The Fast And The Furious" get multiple sequels made, and "Stargate: Et Cetera" goes on for years with no discernible redeeming values... (NB: Yes, that was one sentence.)

In short, you're a Browncoat when you just cannot understand why everybody else on the planet is not one.



Independently,

zoid

P.S.
While I apologize if I offended any Stargate, XXX, or TFTF fans out there, that's another way you can tell you're a Browncoat: If you would gladly and unhesitatingly throw your current favorite T.V. show (for me, "House, M.D.") under the nearest speeding city bus, if it would get Firefly back on the air where it belongs. Sure, I'd miss "House", but there's really no question about it: Firefly lives and House (or any other show or movie) dies before it even realizes what hit it...

You take a late lunch-go home, realize the Firefly marathon is on and risk being late back to work in order to see the last minute of "Trash".

BTW you arrive at work with a silly grin on your face remembering the last scene of "Trash" even though SCIFI obscured Nathan's rear end.

I'm in Australia and I didn't get the marathon, but I watched a Buffy marathon even though I owned the dvds. So yeah I'd watch a marathon on tv. It would save me getting out of bed during the cold nights to change discs. As long as there were no ads of course. Let me have my little fantasy

That's right! It's midwinter in your hemisphere, innit? Here in the central U.S., we're just getting started on our consecutive 100+ degree days streak (God save us). Exactly how cold does it get in your winters? I mean, I could look it up -- this thing called "The Internet" I've been hearing so much about lately -- but I'm interested in a first-person perspective. ...And it'll give you a chance to vent.

Your notion of everybody watching the same moments at the same time wasn't misplaced. That is a neat idea, that a 'synchronicity of souls' occurs when we all see something at exactly the same time. I wasn't aping your words and adding my own twist to say you'd got it wrong.

But I like seeing Firefly with the commercials, because it shows our girl earning a living. That way I can envision her -- even if it's only in my fantasy -- still on first-run primetime TV, with a growing base of millions of adoring fans. She'd be selling shampoo and toothpaste and washing-up liquid; and the Browncoat Army would switch their brands to buy her wares.

After the marathon, that brief glimpse of what might have been has vanished like a mist. We Browncoats are left holding hands around Firefly's quiescent body, weeping as we pray for an awakening from her comatose state...



Still Hopefully,

zoid

P.S.
Regardless the outcome, I will always love and remember Firefly, and believe in her eventual resurrection...

You know, I used to say, "Well, there goes two hours of my life!", after watching some mindless piece of dreck passing itself off as filmed entertainment. Now, I try to work out the piece du merde's budget (is 'merde' feminine or masculine?) to see whether we could have gotten a Serenity sequel for the same price. I take note of big name actors, SFX, whether multiple locations were used for shooting, pyrotechnics, stunts (to include car chases and wrecks on actual city streets), etc.

I mean, if I'm stuck in the mindless oblivion of the standard Hollywood fare, I might as well put my time to good use by fantasizing that I could have been seeing "Shadow" (my nominee for the sequel's title) for the same production cost.

Case in point: "The Cave", seen last night on Starz. Basically, a thinly veiled remake of "Alien". The 'star attraction' of this extended music video (who knew scientists were so cute in belly shirts?) was Cole Hauser, so I'm thinking they didn't spend a lot of money on acting contracts. There is a lot of underwater filming, and actual cave locations: fairly pricey. There is a ton of CGI, blue/green screen effects, and a "creature performer" in full costume and prostheses (again, a la "Alien"): very expensive. Based on my recall of the film's theatrical release, I'd say it got about as much (or a tad more) for promotional expenditures as Serenity.

I figure "The Cave" was easily as expensive as Serenity. Ergo, we could have had "Shadow" and left "The Cave" in the incinerator out in back of the vet's, where it belongs...

See? Wasn't that fun? Certainly better than just sitting there wondering whether or not a film is eventually going to develop 'a story' or 'a meaningful character', only to be disappointed time after time. This way I'm doing something useful with my time in captivity...

Anyone care to analyze how many sequels we could have had for the cost of "Alien vs. Predator" or "Aeon Flux"? Or, oooh, "The Island"? (NB: Virtually a 'note for note' remake of ridiculous B-film, "The Clonus Horror", done up on MST3K)



Figuratively,

zoid

P.S.
It just occurred to me that the same approach could be applied to films like "Lemony Snicket's", "Big Fish" or "Brothers Grimm"... But there's a difference. At least with those three, you can see that there was a creative effort being made. They may have failed at some aspect -- and it's always easiest to blame a specific actor/director, but sometimes it's just bad chemistry/timing -- but at least there was a genuine effort being made to tell an original story. I can admire that, even in failure.

What boils my bodily fluids are the movies that are formulated and prepackaged for maximum affect on an audience within a specific demographic. That ain't storytelling. It's pimping hormone injections. I'm sure it makes money (so does selling crack), but it's disgusting all the same...

WOW! What poetry. I like that 'synchronicity of souls', it is a perfect way to explain my feelings. I struggle to find words worthy of a response. I have spent years dedicating my own self to spreading the word (but Aussies are a strange breed, if it's not sport they don't care), and have only managed to convert a small number. So for me it is amazing to find a place where others are still discussing this amazing experience and keeping the dream alive.
As for the weather, it's usually not too bad here, quite often in shirts during winter. We also get hot summers. My town is Orbost if you want to check the weather out, it was 13C(or 55F) here today . Also I'm ten minutes from the beach.
So poetic. I only wish I knew people like you in my actual world.

When you're mad enough you say 'gorram it' or 'gorram whore' when you're not even thinking.

When you don't buy a photo op with Adam Baldwin because you know that if he even looks at you, you'll faint.

You say 'If wishes were horses we'd all be eating steak!' all the time, even in notes you pass to your friends in class

When you have outfits that make you feel like your favorite character(s).

When if you make an obscure refrence to Firefly, friends who've never seen the show know what you're talking about.

you pimp your fanfic so heavily that friends that have never seen Firefly want to see the show after reading it.

You ask your mother for a ticket to Flan II as your 'big' Christmas gift thereby giving up any other large expensive gifts.

You constantly quote your favorite lines when you're upset or happy.

You use shiny instead of special or cool.

When you're considering getting a Firefly tatoo at some point.

When you use EVERY SINGLE POSSIBLE MOMENT to bring up Firefly to the customer you're checking out while cashiering at your local supermarket - and ask them how they'd like their "cashy money."

You kick your tired father repeatedly to keep him awake in order to get him addicted to Firefly like he is with Star Trek (didn't work... gorram guy just moved).

When you and your first Browncoat convert dress up in Jayne hats and blue gloves on Twin day during spirit week, and also when you decide to dress up as Wash during Hawaiian Shirt day, including bringing in a set of plastic dinosaurs to act out the scene for your friends (and annoy the hell out of 'em too. ).

When you relate everything you can in school towards firefly, whether it's mentioning while you're giving you 'Medieval Monasteries and Abbeys' presentation in English that whenever I read that Monks chained their Books to the desk, you pictures Shepherd Book chained to a desk, or when you write a Firefly-based Canterbury Tales prologue (I refer you to my Blue Sun room. ).

Prob'ly several more, too.

You get the Firefly "in" jokes on Gina's new show Standoff. It is a great show although they need to show more of Gina. In the first episode, she wore a "brown coat". In the third episode they have the male lead where a shirt with chinese characters. I'm convinced that the person in charge of clothing is a firefly fan. Elaine

(you all say in unison "Hi Jim")

I knew I was a Browncoat when:
1. I named my car detailing business "Everything's Shiny"

2. I told someone I was cross with that they were going to the special part of hell.

3. I went out and bought a brown coat.

I can't tell you how bent I was about "The Island". First, Scarlett Johansen alone should have made it fun to look at (God bless a woman in Hollywood with curves, not protruding skeletal parts), and even that lost its charm pretty quickly.

Most of all, I remember "The Island" as a movie from the late 70's early 80's, based on a pretty dandy Peter benchely novel (as in "Jaws" and "The Deep"). I hate to see them take a pretty good name and then slap it on some pile of crap that has nothing to do with the original.......it's why I still have yet to forgive Dodge for the Charger!

You're a browncoat ...

if you use -fei hua- in conversation with your husband about something (probably about the new DVD player to buy) and spend quiet moments for the next 24 hours trying to remember if you used it in the right context. oh yeah, he didn't blink at all.

if your old DVD player died and to watch Serenity you used your computer, but won't let your kids play their DVDs on your computer.

if your kids wake you up awfully early one morning and you yelled at them about fighting with each other that early and realized that you had almost used chinese and gorramit while yelling at them.

if you spend all your free time on this website reading fanfic, and have come up with some ideas for your own fanfic. eep.

if your trying to figure out if you have any brown fabric to make a browncoat out of. I'm a sewer what can I say, don't know of many sewers that don't have stashes of shiny fabric. now do I have any brown....

...you start looking for threads like this just to satisfy your "browncoat hunger". (btw, does anyone have a link to the first one?)

...you die a little inside when you miss the show on your local cable channel even when you already own the series DVD and have watched it a million times.

...your dad looks at you funny when you try memorizing the longer Chinese curses.

...you see mundane objects and start relating them to all things Firefly (like signs that say "Break glass in case of fire", and you immediately think "Ron Glass, Shepherd Book, Firefly...")

You are a Browncoat if.............

You have printed up your own Ariel and Blue Sun 'verse money and...

You carry it with your Earth-That-Was money to weather it for realism and...

You pull it out at work and one of your co-workers asks if its enough to buy a space ship and...

You open your uniform shirt to show them your "Slim's Used Spaceships" shirt with the big ol' Firefly on the front and tell that
"No' its not enough to buy one, but it'll keep her flyin' for awhile.

Your friends are in the local comic book store, pick up the PVC figure set and ask each other, "I wonder if Laurie has these?"

And the owner says, "Yeah, she picked up her set last week."

And your friends (who introduced you to Firefly) start thinking about an intervention.

.....if you spend almost all your free time researching the theory of war and military strategy to be in a better position to flesh out the unit history of your fictional battalion, who in turn is based on a throwaway line from a deleted scene from the pilot episode.

...you do a double-take every time your hear or read the word 'Serenity', even when it has no connection to Firefly.

When someone mentions the serenity prayer and you think of the movie and forget what the prayer says.
When you get jealous of your 11 year old having no school and getting to watch Firefly, and you have to go to work.
You have to be firm with yourself to make said 11 year old wait to watch the BDM, because he's only 11.

(And this a true one, too!) At my job (Where I teach the short folks to properly hit someone else), there is this cute little six year old named, get this, Kaylee. And I put it upon myself to constantly call her "Kaylee-Bird", simply because I think that Zoe said it.
Obsessed?

You watch other TV shows to mostly find you compare how wanting they are compared to Firefly.


I agree, the other is quite cumbersome to load.

Even though you have 2 Serenity CEs, and Bluray Serenity at home with your bigscreen, you're still planning to get to CSTS again this year.
