And so it began...

There was this new show on Fox called "Firefly". It was a Joss Whedon show which meant that it was an automatic "must watch", even if I didn't know what to make of it based on the ads. (Turns out that Fox didn't know what to make of it, either.)

Fox made it all but unwatchable. Never mind the Friday Night Death Slot. It was perpetually pre-empted, and of course, shown out of order. My wife and I concluded that it wouldn't last because it was too good.

There were rumors swirling that it had been canceled. Then, it was over. Bummer.

Time passed. My wife gave me the Firefly DVD for Christmas in 2003. When I unwrapped it, I said "Huh." She said, "Waddaya mean, 'Huh'?! You told me that you loved that show!" Into the DVD player it went. It didn't come out until the end of January. I was then REALLY bummed about Firefly being canceled.

Soon thereafter, I "Googled" Firefly and landed in fireflyfans.net. Not only all things Firefly, but the people! An eclectic mix of the eclectic. With the DVD still fresh in my mind, I saw Lux Lucre's "Firefly Park". Stuff came out of my nose. When Lux passed, I saw The Browncoats mourn. I could feel the weight. Now when there is an installment of "Serenity Park" (Huzzah for Stizo!), I'm reminded of the discovery of FFF.net.

Then came rumors and subsequent news of a movie, and I've spent the time since lurking, reading, laughing, and enduring the countdown with The Browncoats. Now it is the week of the premiere, Joss has spoken, and I wait just a little... bit... longer...

REMINISCING AND DRAGON CON 2020.

Monday, July 6, 2020 5:45:50 PM

Dragon Con 2020 is officially cancelled as an in-person event. No surprise.

I met a pile 'o peeps here many years ago and then met several of those irl at DC back in 2006(-10). I'm still in touch with many from back in the day.

It all started with a TV show, which led me here, which led me to Dragon Con. Wow, that was a long time ago.
