Calling Firefly Fans - Assistance Requested (Thanks!)

Greetings all! I am looking for a few quotes from fellow Firefly fans to use in the forthcoming book chapter "Sexy Nerds: Illya Kuryakin, Mr. Spock, and the Image of the Cerebral Hero in Television Drama," which will appear in a volume on Intelligence in Popular Media due out in late 2006/early 2007. My questions are not for statistical or demographic purposes: I'm just seeking a few anecdotal comments to sprinkle in to add some flavor to my analysis. Comments may be anonymous. Many thanks to anyone who might be willing to assist!

AIM advertisements.

I just wanted to make everyone aware that they may be seeing advertisements for Serenity in their AIM buddy windows, now.

I just did, and I heard of at least one other who has.

It's flash, so I can't figure out how to show the entire animation, but the advertisement says this:

'Watch the new trailer'
Then, Serenity flashes across the screen (the ship),
'For the new movie SERENITY'
'During the first two episodes of Firefly'

And the end result is this:

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

(Editted to say that I'm having problems getting the image to come up, but I'm not sure if it's this computer or Photobucket-- I'm aware if someone just gets 'Image hosted by Photobucket.com'. I think if you refresh it should work at some point.)
