I'm a traditionalist...

We have a shindig coming up in a couple of days, and I whipped up, as I always do, another fun commemorative poster for it. This month's theme is Simon/criminal mastermind, and I made this to represent a possible cortex feed that might have been intercepted and then later seen by River, who did the doodling!

btw, the Chinese should be*:

Tam, Simon (large white)

outlaw (in red)

Doctor - Osirus (small white)

*I say 'should be' because I am _trusting_ another site with the translations... :/

I like the way it looks vandalized (sp?). Makes it all the more funny for us Browncoats! And, nice touch with the Blue Sun sharpie. :D

Great. I love the idea of River drawing on a screen. . .

Hilarious as all hell, TCM...but I think you boobed the DOB for Simon. April 16th, 2486 would make him and Mal about the same age...32 or so by the time of BDM. Pretty sure 2490 would be better, so he would only be 27-28 when River's 17-18 when the BDM is set;)

Call me nitpicky...but Simon was supposed to be a Doogie Howser kind of guy (though he didn't finsh med school at like age 14 or whatever) in that he entered and graudated MedAcad early and was well on his way to being a Big Cheese by 30;)

Sean Maher's Real birthday, mathed backwards from the year of the TV show (2517). :)

Nice work. I love the Riveraffiti. I wonder if Simon's license was indeed revoked. That would hurt.

Hope the shindig's shiny.

>>btw, the Chinese should be*:

Tam, Simon (large white)

outlaw (in red)

Doctor - Osirus (small white)<<

For anyone interested:
It actually says Ta, Simon. The 西蒙 Ximeng for "Simon" is common (Simon Cowell, Paul Simon). However, I think the helper wanted to be Chinesey and use a one-syllable surname. But then it should be 谭 Tan (Cantonese Taam), a common surname. Ignoring Simon's Chinesey-sounding surname, 西蒙·谭姆 Ximeng TanMU would be better (like 山姆 Shanmu for Sam Houston/Shepard).

The red 逃犯 taofan is "fugitive" like the English, not "outlaw." 医生 Yisheng for "doctor" is right.

Simon's from OsirIs. 欧塞勒斯 Ousailesi for "Osiris" is O.K., but perhaps 欧塞里斯 Ousailisi would be better.

Thanks Ying!

Mayhaps I should give you a holler next time I need the translating done! ;)

I'm just happy I could get it as close as I did and that it doesn't say something like "pickles bite your dirty shoes" or something... :))

Purty! One nitpicky little thing though. (This has no real purpose and is not meant as criticism so feel free to ignoe it but..)
Wasn't his last known location on Ariel? What with him being picket up by the feds and the Blue Hand guys being called, I think they knew he was there.

Anyway, awesome shiny! Great pic and great concept!

Yeah, but all those guys got microwaved(or whatever) by the Hands of Blue guys. :P

Firefly Playing Cards - Serenity
The box suggested that some of the cards can combine to make an's what I've found so far. Think she'll hold together? ;)

HAPPY U-DAY! Bonus Apples to Griswold Cards!
To celebrate U-Day and the release of my new game, here's a few bonus cards!

Apples To Griswolds game now available!!!
Yes, you can release that baited breath you've held, it's finally here!

Apples to Griswolds! Just in time for Talk Like a Pirate Day for all you ruttin' space farin' pirate types! Shiny!

Download it now! Print and play today!

Joss Whedon BWAH! card - re-release
Updated with the new link for my Firefly games, the original was only available to those who attended a special advanced screening of Serenity in Cincinnati, but now everyone can have one! I've tagged it with the addy as well to identify it as the new copy.

Visit the link on the card to download any and all games I've developed, available for FREE, as always, to all my fellow Browncoats. Thanks for carrying me all these years. :) You guys are the finest bunch of Rubens in the 'verse.

A variant, again, because I can. Share it if you like it :)

Because I could. :)

Captain Castle
A fellow Browncoat, goes by Watcho, was telling me how her sister was now watching Firefly because of Nathan Fillion in Castle. She retorted with "He was my Captain before he was your Castle", and lo, a new design was born in that moment. You can find this design in the old TCM SPACE BAZAAR at: or, if you're handy with an iron, as your legend tells, print it out and iron it on your own self. Enjoy!

Apples to Griswolds
Been out of the (game making) world a while, but I got a request late last year from a very dear friend, so I am making it a reality for them...and you! This is just the teaser. And there will be at least be at one rule in my version there isn't in the original Apples to Apples game. All I'll say is there'll be a little...*pop* ;)

Also, at the behest of fans, both past and current, I'm only doing this up in grayscale in order to go easy on printing because there'll be A LOT of cards, and I don't want to eat up folks' printer ink.

Firefly Valentines (blast from the past)
More of the same, only different. ;)

Firefly Valentines (blast from the past)
Dug these up, made 'em years back. Sharing again for you!
