More Firefly posts. Boy, this series has got its hooks into me and C. I've been exploring the massive, baroque web-presence of its fan-base. Everything from the familiar (t-shirts, bumper stickers, hats, books) to the delightful (like a box of juggling geese). One particular line, a parting shot uttered by psychotic-but-sweet-ballet-dancer- assassin-in-motorcycle boots River Tam, is funny as hell in the episode. But taken out of context, and printed on 100% cotton, whoa! This must be the ultimate t-shirt to wear to a university lecture or academic seminar. Or a job interview. I must order one immediately!
