Word of the Day: Serenity
Monday, November 7, 2005

We have this custom in class. Every day, the class is begun by a student saying some words that mean something special to him, or as it mostly is, that sound cool. This can be a poem, a song, an editorial from a magazine... Ok, that last bit, not so meaningful, but anything goes.

Today was my turn. My turn. 2 weeks ago, I was in Bergen for Bergen International Film Festival, in order to catch a screening of Serenity. I got in, barely. (They overbooked the place ) Before the film started, this guy showed up on screen. It was the video of Joss' presentation of the film to those who were going to be the lucky ones to see it. The speechifying was good, and to be honest, I had it memorized there and then. People clapped. A little digression now. People clapped even moreso after the movie, something which never happens in Norway. There was dancing. Ok, maybe I was the only one dancing, but still, dancing!

I recited Joss Whedon's speech to my class. They had no way of knowing that this was coming, or how to relate to the funniness that is Joss Whedon. Yet, they laughed, they clapped and my teacher said: "We have to go see that movie." Notice the we part. If this get's an extra 20 tickets sold to Serenity, I'm proud.

There is still hope. For Serenity.
