Please put Ron back on the ground. I'm speaking figuratively of course. I toast you all for all you amazing fans have kept the hope alive and the dvds selling. I still can't believe we're gonna get a frickin' movie!!!!!

Important people don't do field work.


Man oh Man oh MAN!

I'm so excited, I just have to make the pee.

That, or kick Crow into a running engine.

But, I think I'll keep the money...

Cheers!

A few hours from now, actors and crew will be stirring in their beds and peeking at the clock and out into the pre-dawn of Los Angeles. Cars from all over the county will head for frikkin' Universal Studios soundstages where they will put the first scenes in the record.

But first, Chris Buchanan will introduce the staff to the awesome welcome banner funded, designed and built by Browncoats.

A toast to all!

Flyin' again!

ETA: Another (very connected) poster on the OB said Chris won't unveil the banner until the *entire* cast are on set, which is next week, but I think Monday.

To the crew of Serenity, to the writers, to the builders, the caterers and everyone else involved who worked so hard to get our beloved Serenity flying again.

and dammit, here's to us for believing in it and making enough gorram noise to keep Firefly from rotting away in the "what ever happened to..." vault

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


The first thought I had when I woke up @ 5:30 this morning was "The BDM starts filming today!" I will be thinking about our favorite cast, crew, and writer/director throughout the day. I will send them all the positive energy I can today in hopes that it adds to the magic they will be making.

to all of the cast, crew, Joss, Chris, and all the others that are making this great project a reality. I would also like to offer up a toast to all of the Browncoats. If not for your loyalty, tenacity, and drive things would not be in motion and the world would be a darker place indeed.

Damn, I was getting my gear ready to go give Ron Glass a lift to the set and then ask him a few "friendly questions" abut who the Real Shepard Book is...

But I suppose I can raise my tea.

But but, one of these days Mr. Glass, one of these days...Mine is an evil laugh!

Skydance: the banner was put together by the folks at the OB. It's going to be displayed somewhere the cast and crew can see it. A picture and discussion about it is here:

http://www.fireflyfans.net/thread.asp?b=2&t=5428

It's pretty shiny.

And now, a toast to Joss, Tim, the amazing cast, the incredible crew, and any of the wonderful people who had anything to do with this: You've done it!!!! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!!

And to my fellow browncoats: Woo-Hoo!!! Is it too early to get in line?

Is it bad that I already have my costume picked out for watching the movie next year? Yeay Yeay for the BDM !!!!!!!

There is a special place in hell for child molesters and the people at Fox who cancelled Firefly in the first place. And for what? "Little people" vs. Elephants pulling 747s. Thanks a lot a-holes! Whew. Got that outta my system. "Firefly" was the best show on TV, ever,Period. Even my wife likes it and she hates sci-fi. I just found out about "Serenity" today. Fan-frickin-tastic! and Joss, your new x-men book is sweet too! I was hoping for a Firefly comic from Darkhorse or something, but this is WAY better! Way to go people, make it happen!

And the first day of many Captain Tightpants pants splitting to come *laughs* I wonder how many pants they have for Nathan in stock.

I don't think having a costume ready is crazy. I thought of dressing up. But I don't know who I should go as besides Zoey(seeing as I'm black and I could possibly pull it off). I also thought of River, but I dunno...

WHoo hoo. joy of joys. Well I was on vacation in cali. end of April beginning of may. On one of the days we spent at Universal studios. While taking the tour, the first sound stage we passed was #12. The announcer lady said this is where they are filming SERENITY and I don't remember much else after that. It was a good day.
Well filmin's begun and it is a very good day.

You're on my crew. Why are we still talking about it?

Odd, and today I just happened to be watching "The Message" again, which I understand was the last episode actually filmed (if not the last in story sequence). Maybe some sort of psychic vibe.

Somebody up-thread asked if the crew and cast would have been on-set by 8AM or so. I expect that they probably were, and in makeup and costume long before that-- and, filming being the laborius process it is, it is possible (although I hope not, for their sakes) that cast and crew are still at it as of now, 10:06 PM Pacific time. Everybody send 'em positive warm fuzzy vibrations to sustain 'em.

I'm sorry to admit I had to be reminded that shooting started today-- but it was good to be reminded at the end of a day that, personally, will not be remembered fondly. A gorram shiny note to go to bed on.

To the crew!

To the cast!

To Joss!
