I was in southern China recently and everyone decided I was pretty strange when I started taking pictures of these billboards.

Anyone check out the web site listed at the bottom of the billboard ( http://www.bluesunadv.com/)?

So now we know... Blue Sun got started as an ad agency! No wonder they're so good at getting their logo plastered over everything in the 'verse.

Interesting thing: I see one of the two Chinese characters from Joss's Blue Sun logo (the leftmost of both the sign and logo), but not the other one. I wonder what makes the difference? Maybe there are multiple words for "blue" or "sun", or maybe the fact that it's part of a longer name matters.

Egah!

Has someone shown this to Joss?

Maybe he could work out some kinda deal; these guys'll pay for the show as product placement. . .

There are, there's, as Inara would say, nuances of meaning. In chinese a word/character can mean different things depending on it's context, In fact I think I saw somewhere that in some contexts the Blue Sun Characters from the Show could mean Young Sun, not sure about that though.

Oh my god that's brilliant and it needs to be entered into the video contest!

If I do the video would you be willing to enter it as a joint venture?

Have you illustrated this filk, 'cos you should.

Blue Sun as ad agency explains a deal. After all, advertising and psychology/psychotherapy came out of the same roots. (Freud's nephew opened one of the first Wall Street agencies) It would make a sick kind of sense.

Sure! Yeah, absolutely! I still haven't worked out how to make videos, so I would be glad to see someone else make this.
You want me to look for pictures? I'll start looking for pictures.
How're you going to record the song? Please note that "Zoe" needs to be the short version rather than the long version or the rhythm gets all screwed up.
So I'll get some pictures together and post them... somewhere. Or e-mail them to you. No, it might be too many pictures. I could send you links in an e-mail, though!
GAH! Now I wanna get home and start laying it out!

Well the song shouldn't be too hard, find a source for the background track then record the vocals and run it through a few filters, echo I think and maybe a slight speed increase. I think most of that can be done in Windows Sound Recorder, do you want to give that a try?

I was thinking maybe a little mix of pictures and video ripped from the DVDs and the Film, short clips like river dancing rather than just static images (you can't easilly do that in flash, which is probably why the llama song doesn't, but might look good).

If there's any clips/images you have particularly in mind then cool, I'll send you my email in a sec in a PM.

The original one I saw - "Sawyer Sawyer Locke" - just used static images. In many ways that made it all the funnier, and the timing was really well done. I don't think it's on the net any more, sadly enough. Does anyone know who made that? I can't be the only person who saw it!

Hi Whimsicalnbrainpan.

Just for interest, your quote is missing an important word. Correct is:

Well, my days of not taking you seriously are certainly coming to a middle.

Just thought you might care to know. (you can look it up: http://www.fireflywiki.org/105.html has the whole script)

If you can't find it, and he's not drinking coffee, you can enlist the help of the internet finder guy team thing:

Thanks Esther! I can't believe I missed that. I'm usually pretty anal about being correct with my quotes. I'm going to fix it right now.

That's creepifying but somewhat shiny too. I wonder if they're fans of the verse?

Morbid and creepifying I got no problem with, so long as you do it quiet like.
