LATEST BLOG ENTRY
DONE THE IMPOSSIBLE.....WE MADE IT!!!
Monday, August 21, 2006 9:15:42 AM
Well now. I have never before been inspired to write a Blog entry until this moment. My wife and I finally recieved our copy of Done The Impossible, the documentary detailing the rise, fall, and rebirth of firefly. And 30 minutes into the disc....there we were!!!
Janna and I had gone to Dragon Con in 2005 seeking autographs for my DVD box set. While there we signed up for a slot to sit for the documentary. We luckly made it in. I asked my interviewer what I could say to make the final cut into the disc and he said "just say whatever you feel the most strongly about. And keep in mind many many people have sat before you so saying something unique would also be helpful"
Hmm....unique? Ok...lets see. Hmmmm......
I am a civil engineer by education. I also have a strong interest in astronomy and space exploration. So once the camera rolled I expounded all about my excitement to see a sci-fi show use modern projectile weapon tech in a near future setting. I also spoke about controlled fusion reactions and how this tech is not far from us in the 21st century and how plausible it is to observe Serenity's full burn as a controlled fusion reaction. I also blathered on about astronomy and the excitement I felt when I saw how real the 'verse could be given our current understandings of the star systems around us in our corner of this galactic spiral arm.
I figured other people didn't take "The science angle" so I tried that.
They didn't use any of it.
But what they did take was a little bit of my comments regarding my self-imposed agenda to become a missionary for the program. They also used Janna's comment that in x-mas 2004 we gave out several firefly disc sets.
I'm just so happy and proud that they felt that Janna and I added value to their work. The guys that interviewed us were absoutely awsome and I wish I could do it again.
So for those of you with a copy of Done the Impossible, Look for Pete and Janna. I'm wearing my blue sun shirt and Janna is in a pink top. They spelled her name with 1 N and she was mildly annoyed at that, but they got her name spelled right in the credits. My only regret was that the staff at Done the Impossible sent me an e-mail asking what, if any, fireflyfans.net handle I had and I completely forgot to reply. So instead of being listed as "thiefjehat" were just listed as "browncoats".
Ah well. It's all good!!
