Gifts from the Out of the Blue

I had been wanting to see Done the Impossible: The Fans' Tale of Firefly & Serenity for quite some time now. I almost bought it on several occasions. Well, one of the people who helped make the documentary is apparently a listener of Monkey's podcast. He met up with James (the Carson of the podcast to which Monkey's plays McMahon) when James was at MacWorld expo this past January and gave James a copy of the DVD to give to Monkeys. Monkeys has mentioned Dragoncon and such sf/f geekiness in addition to the Apple obsession stuffs, so he thought Monkeys would like it. Isn't that amazingly nice and cool? Unfortunately, James couldn't remember the name of said guy, so I don't know who exactly to thank for this gift. Regardless, I'M SO EXCITED! I've heard a lot about the documentary - it's fan-made (and FF fans are quite amazing in-and-of-themselves), but hosted by Adam Baldwin and has interviews with Joss and most of the cast plus all sorts of extras. Woot! It's time to put on the cunning hat S2K sent me and watch me some Space Western!

Monkeys is going to track down who our benefactor is so he can ask about meeting up next Dragoncon. I want to say thanks in person and to get an autograph.

What's really funny/cute, James doesn't really watch Firefly, so he had no idea what he was bringing back to us.

But now you have your own copy, so there's that. Yay! Very kind of that fan!

That's darned cool... glad you have a cunning hat to watch it with.

The wife of the couple that stayed in out room this year suggested I create a podcast about the... unusual erotica I've written recently. (You don't wanna know) I told her there was no way I'd be doing that... I guess you never know who'd listening.

If you did a podcast I would listen! Is it the zombie stuff? You can just say "yes" or "no" ;)

It *is* strange because you truly never know who might find your podcast. (or webpage or blog) When I was taking Web-based Instruction we had to design a functional lesson for our main project. Mine was on writing Haiku. YEARS after the class was over I started getting emails from all over the world - not many, maybe six or seven - from people who used the haiku site. There was one really mean email, but the others were thanking me! Two were elementary school teachers who were using the site in their classes, even! Really made me feel wonderful. Well, except for the mean email. I wanted to write back and say "hey, I'm a STUDENT and this is a class project. The site says at the outset this is not an actual lesson, but my final project, and that it was not meant to be a resource for anyone doing any advanced study of haiku." But as her email was written in all caps and had horrible grammar, I figured my defense would not be understood.

"Yes" :D

I love your Icon! I made ribbon cherry blossoms for my nail tech once... they were pretty but a pain in the fanny. I swore I'd never make them again. One day maybe I will.

And that mean person sucks! What was her problem? There are so many more things in this world to be annoyed with than someone's website.

I can understand why - the Firefly pictures were impressive. Especially the Mal and Zoe that borrowed you for their pictures. Everyone was good, though. I loved the guy who was dressed as Wash!

Megacon looked fun. It reminded me of Dragoncon - loads of costumes of all sorts and shows. Made me homesick. :) I don't know a lot of anime, but as many of my friends are addicts I knew enough to appreciate what I saw.
