  • In the wake of the Emanuel AME Church Massacre, time to ban the series 'Firefly'

    Houston TV Examiner ^ | June 26, 2015 | Mark R. Whittington
    In the wake of the massacre at the Emanuel AME Church, America seems to be bent on eradicating even the hint of any symbol regarding the Confederacy, from removing the Confederate battle flag from public spaces to even deleting Civil War computer games. Serious people have proposed banning “Gone With the Wind” and sanitizing “The Dukes of Hazzard.” Others have advocated blowing up the Jefferson Memorial and other monuments to famous Southerners whether they had anything to do with the Civil War or not. However, if America is serious about expunging any hint of the Confederacy, it must even ferret...

    The Entomology Research Museum at the University of California, Riverside today announced the discovery of a new species of firefly from Southern California, collected by an undergraduate student as part of his semester's insect collection. Doug Yanega, senior museum scientist, said the student, Joshua Oliva, obtained one specimen of the new species while collecting near Topanga, Calif. "He wasn't 100 percent certain it was a firefly, and brought it to me for confirmation," Yanega said. "I know the local fauna well enough that within minutes I was able to tell him he had found something entirely new to science. I...

First, on the Campaign trail, Florida, 2008; leaving for our African vacation, 2013                 At a Garden Party, 2012,and another Garden Party, 2013                (SNIP) If, however, summer fashion reruns don’t satisfy your need for passive entertainment, I direct you to this compendium of TV summer rerun options. You’ve probably never heard of most of the recommendations, butt I’m sure you’ll discover some gems such as this new-to-me series, Firefly from way back in 2002. Apparently...
  • Avengers' Director Whedon Goes On Anti-Capitalist Rant

    So says the guy probably worth somewhere around a gajillion dollars and who likely made somewhere around a thousand times more money from "Avengers" than anyone on the crew. But Whedon's obviously talking about socialism for, you know, other people: “We are watching capitalism destroy itself right now,” [Whedon] told the audience. He added that America is “turning into Tsarist Russia” and that “we’re creating a country of serfs.” Whedon was raised on the Upper Westside neighborhood of Manhattan in the 1970s, an area associated with left-leaning intellectuals. He said he was raised by people who thought socialism was a...

    MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 26, 2011—A professor has been censored twice, reported to the "threat assessment team," and threatened with criminal charges because of satirical postings on his office door. Campus police at the University of Wisconsin–Stout (UWS) censored theater professor James Miller's poster depicting a quotation from actor Nathan Fillion's character in the television series Firefly, and the police chief threatened Miller with criminal charges for disorderly conduct. After UWS censored his second poster, which stated, "Warning: Fascism," Miller came to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) for help. "Colleges and universities are supposed to foster brave and bold...
  • 'Firefly' rewatch: 'Bushwhacked' by rapacious space cannibals. Yes, this is Science Channel.

    03/16/2011 12:46:06 PM PDT · by Kartographer · 38 replies ^ | 3/16/11 | Jeff Jensen
    “Bushwhacked” — the third episode of Firefly’s only, abbreviated season -– contained one of the late, lamented cult classic’s most haunting moments. With his rickety smuggler’s ship about to be boarded and searched by The Alliance, Mal decided to hide fugitive siblings Simon Tam and River from the authorities by sealing them up in spacesuits and stowing them outside. Simon – skeptical that mere “Mylar and glass” could protect him from the “nothing” of space – shuddered in fear. Incapable of even peeking at the infinite star-dotted expanse at his back, the buttoned-up doctor kept his eyes focused on Serenity’s...

    If you were ever asked about innovation in controller design you may mention the introduction of the SNES pad, maybe the first DualShock controller, or more recently the revolution that was the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. But new controllers don’t always have to be forward thinking and a new indie game called Firefly is taking a distinctively different approach to game input. Rather than using a keyboard, mouse, joypad, joystick, racing wheel, or motion control, the developer has turned to a much cheaper alternative – candlelight. That’s right, Firefly is the first game as far as I know that takes...

    In an interview at this year’s Comic Con, director Joss Whedon talked about the Collector’s Edition Serenity DVD and a possible big screen sequel. Here are just a few snippets of that interview: So after all is said and done, was Serenity profitable? Do you consider it a success? Joss Whedon (JW): It’s a success to the studio or else we wouldn’t be doing a special edition DVD. They actually admitted as much on paper, which you know studios are loathe to do, and that was actually from the theatrical. Theatrical was a disappointment, as everyone knows, but it did...

    On Sept. 8 the Air Force announced it's scrapping $32 million worth of airplanes, planes that taxpayers have been paying to keep at Hondo's' airport. Most of the past decade taxpayers have paid about $12,000 a month to let those airplanes deteriorate. When the Slingsby T-3A Firefly was brought into the Air Force pilot training program in 1994 it was a big deal — a $32 million deal. Roughly $60 million worth of airplanes and parts, are sitting in storage at the taxpayers expense. "Unfortunately, that's the way it is," Maintenance director for the Air Education Training Command, Bob Hemp...

One that breaks with conventions, or should I say cliches of TV sci-fi of the 90's . The politically correct pabulum, the multicultural indoctrination, the BladeRunner motifs, and not the least; the steroid mutated superbabes that can punch the lights out of men, but never get punched back in return !?

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    Brad Wright, co-creator of SCI FI Channel's original series Stargate SG-1, offered SCI FI Wire a few spoilers on the show's upcoming 200th episode, which tips its hat to a much shorter-lived SF series about civil-war veterans in space. The episode will be part of the 10th season, which debuts this summer. The 200th episode will bring back the character of Martin Lloyd (Willy Garson) and his fictional TV show Wormhole X-treme, which was the subject of the 100th episode, "Wormhole X-treme," and is a parody of SG-1 itself. "The 200th, ... as we've all put our heads together on...

Director Joss Whedon—who also created the canceled Fox TV show Firefly, on which the movie is based—expected that the movie might draw the low numbers it did in its theatrical release, Peristere said in an interview. But he added that the movie's sales on DVD, which came out on Dec. 20, are running neck-and-neck with the hit comedy Wedding Crashers, which bodes well for a possible Serenity...

When Galactica creator Ronald D. Moore and visual-effects supervisor Gary Hutzel saw the visual effects that had been pioneered for director Joss Whedon and Serenity's predecessor TV show, Firefly, they came to Peristere. They told him "that's the way it should be photographed, and please bring those rules to Galactica," Peristere said in an interview. "That is the way...

I chose to ignore these things, and just enjoy the movie.

They asked bloggers to set up pre-release screenings across America (or to attend previously scheduled screenings) for free as long as the bloggers agreed to write about the film on their blogs. They did not demand or even suggest that the blog reviews be positive or encouraging, just to write something. One might assume that Universal might have taken this approach for one of two reasons. The first motive...

The lesson was never deal with the Devil... 10/9 - Battlestar Galatica. They return to Kobol...

    Tonight's Sci - Fi Listing: 7/6 - Firefly. Basically Sci-fi is showing repeats of Firefly and showing previews of the movie Serenity. 8/7 - Stargate SG1: Vala is on trial for a crime she comitted when she was a host to a goauld. Last weeks episode was a good one. More of a ha ha type of episode. 9/8 - Stargate Atlantis: They crash land on a planet where they offer the wraith prisoners for food (hmmmm). Lasts week ok... 10/9 - Battlestar Galatica: Finally Adama returns also the story is getting better. It looks Tigh is a weak fool.

    Video (Iowa City – KCRG) -- Are pencils passé? Some companies are touting technology as the key for kids to stay ahead of the coolness curve. The latest push button item does not exactly add, subtract or multiply. It must be August. Parents are with their kids shopping for school supplies. The National Retail Federation says families will spend about $450 on back to school shopping. Department stores now have lists that tell parents everything their kids need to fill up their backpacks. That list includes notebooks. Kids also need their pencils. But believe it or not, some parents...

    Tonight's Sci-Fi Listing: 7/6 - Firefly: Yes I know the Sci-fi channel is showing repeats, but I consider Firefly one of the best shows.. Also Firefly is a good example in why Sci-Fi shows should never be on a regular network. 8/7 - Stargate SG1: Avalon Pt II, I was impressed in how Browder seems to fit in the show.. So far it is starting on a good foot. This week SG1 discovers more info and discover a new enemy. 9/8 - Stargate Atlantis: Last weeks episode was awesome. I like how they use tatical nuclear weapons. Not very PC....

    Portland, May 26, 10:00 p.m."HI, MY NAME IS JOSS WHEDON. Before we begin the special screening, I have a little story I want to tell you. It's about a TV show called Firefly." I'm sitting in a movie theater in Portland and along with 200 other fans, I'm staring at a 20-foot-tall projection of the bleary, peanut-shaped head of Joss Whedon--creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer; he's snarkily introducing Serenity--the partially-completed film we're about to watch. We're paying to see this unfinished movie four months before its release date. It's the second of three rounds of sold-out sneak-preview screenings, scheduled...

    Many of us Sci-Fi fans have been waiting on this one. Universal bumped the release date to September due to "The Interpreter" being released this past weekend. But the trailer is now online and may be shown with "Hitchhikers Guide" this Friday. Enjoy!
