It’s 9:30pm, I’m about to have a light snack . . .
(Nutella sandwich, two Maria cookies with Nutella, half a brownie/walnut/chocolate chips cookie, and three dark chocolate Acais) and a small latte, and I’m trying to get tomorrow’s posts under my belt before heading off to sleep. I’d like to be done by the time I have my late snack at 11:30 because I need to get up at 5:00am to put out the hummingbirds feeders (it’s dropping into the low 20s tonight, and the little critters will need fresh sugar water at first light).
Most will guess from the title that I decided to start on documenting my Firefly stuff, starting with the books. For people who have been living under the stairs all their lives, I am, in fact, a Firefly fan.
I recently saw a small opinion piece telling Firefly fans to give it a rest, hinting perhaps they should “move on”. The funny part is that the person who reposted that piece is a sports fan, a Dr. Who fan, and a fan of other stuff I did not make the effort to care and remember. You should read his Facebook wall when his team is playing (and losing).
I don’t dress up, I don’t go to conventions, and I’m not out there shouting Firefly is the best show ever. Sure, I may think less of people who can’t see the fact it is, in point of fact, the best show ever, but that’s not out of the norm; I basically think less of pretty much everyone.
Firefly is the only property I’ve done the following for: I occasionally put down some money and buy Firefly related stuff.
The first of which were the books . . .
“Those Left Behind” is a comic that meant to bridge the time between the idiots at Fox cancelling the TV show, and the movie coming out (a span of three years). By the way, the idiots at Fox just cancelled “Almost Human”, so once again their ranking with me has dropped to the level of . . . well, you know when you are walking around and a piece of chewing gum gets stuck on your shoe? Great; now, do you know how when you walk that chewing gum picks up all sorts of stuff. Great . . . Fox ranks lower than the dirt that is on the stuff that’s stuck on the chewing gum that is stuck at the bottom of your shoes.
Anyway, I don’t recommend the comic. Maybe it’s just me, but the graphic representation of the characters is nowhere near what the characters (actors) are in the show. Not in looks, and not in their actions. Fans were raving about it, and I bought it. I’m keeping it, but it’s not like I’ll ever read it again.
There are two books covering the series, and I highly recommend them. For one, they have the scripts for each episode, and for another, they have a lots of information about the ship . . .
. . . about the characters . . .
. . . and about their weapons.
. . . and the FireFly world in general.
The same thing can be said about the “Serenity Official Visual Companion” book.
This page has portion of the script . . .
. . . and sketches of some of the reavers weapons.
The role-playing game is another matter. I don’t play, but I ordered the book because it taps on the background stories that were developed, and never used.
Also there are options to have Serenity be one of the character, and I wrote about it HERE.
What’s not to like about that!
Anyway, those are the only Firefly-related books I own.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
