Waves from the ‘Verse: River Tam and the Fireflies for Sale on Etsy,

She can kill you with her songs. Also, her mind.

Our attention to this was captured by the TeeFury newsletter in our email last week. The shirt is currently not buyable.

The prints, however, are!

If you mosey on over to Joebot’s Etsy you may be able to buy one of the few left.

(Or you can buy one for us. Our wall is cold and lacks the proper amount of Firefly love.)

Moment of Who: Doctor Who Series 5 Opening Credits Done Buffy Style

We wanted to hate this. Tried real hard, too. It didn’t take.

So, Whedon, you want to write a Dr Who episode, don’t ya?

Waves from the ‘Verse: Science Channel Aims to Re-Air FIREFLY! Internet Aims to Help Nathan Fillion Buy FIREFLY.

Browncoats please attend.

It has won multiple sci-fi awards.

It has a cult following that rivals Wars and Trek. You doubt this? Next sci-fi convention you attend(or mock if that’s what’s blowing up your skirt these days) be sure to run a tally of Vulcan ears and Stormtroopers vs. the sheer amount of Jayne Hats. The answer may surprise you.

It also has a permanent residence in space! The International Space Station to be exact. Low earth orbit to be even exact-er.

What we’re talking about is the oft-lamented, killed by Fox TV executives, science fiction western epic that is Firefly. Just yesterday we learned this shiny ‘verse is set to fly the skies of cable television again. Sure it’ll be re-runs of a show that any proper Browncoat already owns on DVD or Blu Ray. But The Science Channel is adding the extra wrinkle of Dr. Michio Kaku discussing how the show’s sci-fi matches with real science. There’s nothing like a popular physicist pointing out that line between real and fantasy we always say.

Here we see part of the EW interview with Nathan Fillion wherein he gives Browncoats all over the world false hope.

EW: If Castle had its series finale tomorrow and Fox said to you and Joss: “We screwed up, let’s try doing Firefly again.” Would you do it?
Nathan Fillion: Yes. Yes. I would examine very closely Fox’s reasoning — I’m a little gun-shy. If I got $300 million from the California Lottery, the first thing I would do is buy the rights to Firefly, make it own my own, and distribute it on the Internet.


EW: Why do you think the show has had such an enduring appeal?
Nathan Fillion: It’s a great question. We’re the most story-literate society the world has ever seen. What Joss tends to do is twist story conventions into reality. Whereas the story goes like this, real life goes like this, and that’s what Joss has mastered.

Help Nathan Fillion Buy
What a difference 24 hours makes. In that sparse bit of time Internet has decided to take Fillion up on his comment about buying Firefly. Our friends at Geeks of Doom have taken the lead on this story.

How powerful is Nathan Fillion, the actor who portrayed Captain Malcolm Reynolds in the short-lived sci-fi television show Firefly?

Powerful enough so that fans take any suggestion to resurrect the show literally despite a highly unlikely success rate.

Check out GoD’s full breakdown on the likelihood of this getting anywhere shiny. (Please realize our inner geek squees at the thought of new episodes of Firefly but we also think putting said money on a worthy real-life cause would be even more shiny.) Then drop below the cut to see official sites, including a Facebook, and peek at The Plan to bring nerdgasm to Browncoats worldwide.

Waves from the ‘Verse: Gingerbread Serenity

If you’re a proper browncoat this is seriously old news by Internet reckoning. That doesn’t make it any less shiny though. And this is the perfect intro to our latest ode to geek love easy post series “Waves from the ‘Verse”. The definitive companion to “Today in Star Wars.”

Firefly fan Kristogger Gressli spent a few days building this Joss Whedon-inspired treat with his brother. He even included a few photos to give us an idea of their process

If we look close we can almost see Wash’s toy dinosaurs gathered around the pilot’s chair.

Now that’s a ship that’s done the impossible and it is mighty.

Someone…[shut down imminent]

[Emergency stasis lock initiated]

Hello. Groonk’s superego here. The above music video has shut down two-thirds of the Groonk system. Why? Well, it’s been a long running joke of ours that all that’s needed is a beautiful robot maid to take care of household and personal needs in order to get through the 21st century day.

Then MaurissaTancharoen, Jed Whedon and Anton King go and make this video featuring actors from the Wedonverse (our favorite in all the ‘verses) depicting exactly how we imagine that dream/joke scenario to play out. This was too much for our robot brain to completely process in one sitting.

Please enjoy the bittersweet tale “Remains” while we slowly bring brain functionality back to 100%.

From “Buffy” to Webcomics: Nick Brendon Talks “Very Bad Koalas”

On one of our monthly visits to we learned that Brendon and friends were working on a webcomic called Very bad Koalas.

Cut to a few months later and Brendon is making the interview rounds.

Geek to Me: You’ve said that the comic will run for 52 weeks, will be free and have a set ending, which is kind of interesting for a web comic. What made you think you wanted to go in that direction?

Nick Brendon: I was doing an animated show for Disney, and Steve Loter – my writing partner – was doing my show and we were kind of talking as I was voicing this robot dog. I had ideas, he had ideas, and we thought ‘why don’t we pool our ideas? Marry them?’ And then we came up with “Very Bad Koalas”. The idea is to give it out for free, for the first year.

It’s wild and it’s wacky. It’s about some koalas who get a car from the Devil, you know, and they’ve gotta right some wrongs, wrong some rights.

#MusicMonday: 8-Bit Dr. Horrible, Experience the Ph.D in Horribleness Through Gamer Eyes

Joss Whedon’s 2008 web serial Dr Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog is a love that will not die. Nor should it. We bore witness to the fan made prequel HORRIBLE TURN and deemed it worthy.

Now lay your eyes on Doctor Octoroc‘s 8-Bit Dr Horrible. This is not a shot-for-shot rehash of the Dr Horrible experience. It is an 8-bit game-like adaptation that’s damn amusing to watch. Acts 1 and 2 are done. One of the special moments we love is seeing Capt Hammer throw the car at Horrible’s face.

We can’t wait to see Act 3.
Update: Act 3 is in and it is *love.*

Watch the drama unfold on the main site or look below the jump to the handy playlist we made just for you.

BTW you can download the 8-bit soundtrack if you like. Dr Horrible would not be a musical without that.
