Gir on the floor

Obey the Fist!!!

Woo hoo!!! Invader Zim is now available on the iTunes Music Store! Currently they only have volume 1 (of 3), but the first episode is a free download, so if by some tragedy you haven't yet experienced the wonder and insanity that is Invader Zim, DO IT NOW, PATHETIC EARTH STINK!!!

BTW, IMHO the first episode is actually one of the weakest of the series, but introduces the main characters and sets the series up well.

Firefly, Serenity

Back Into the Black!

In case you don't follow what's happening in Firefly/Serenity fandom, there's something big happening. The Master^W^WJoss Whedon's birthday is June 23rd. In honor of this, there are charity screenings of Serenity happening worldwide (yes, in movie theaters) from the 22nd through the 24th, with the proceeds going to Equality Now (Joss' favorite charity). Full details can be had here. This is a big deal, guys. It's an entirely fan-organized event that's getting a lot of publicity. In addition to "doin' good works", it also shows the dedication of the Browncoat community. It keeps Firefly in people's minds, and may add a bit to our chances of getting a sequel.

Here in the Tampa area, it'll be playing at the Tampa Pitcher Show on N Dale Mabry on the 24th (this Saturday) at 1:30 PM. They'll be doing raffles and such, and of course they serve food and drink there. I haven't checked with all of my Smooshlings yet, but so far it looks likely that we'll be there. Note that admission is a little higher than normal, but it is going to a worthwhile cause.

Additionally, I don't know the full details, but if you don't already own a copy of Serenity (or are looking to pick up another one for a friend or convert), buy it on Friday the 23rd! Again, the spike in sales is being parlayed into improved chances of a sequel.

Shiny! I "only" got to see Serenity 5 times on the big screen. It looks like I'll get a chance to kick that up a notch. :-)

EDIT: The Smoosh will definitely be there. Janet is buying tickets now. :-) :-) :-)
