A few random questions

While I pride myself in being a Firefly fanatic, I have recently come across a few pretty specific bits of information that I'm unsure of and I wanted to bring them to the community for discussion.

What was Zoe's rank in the war?
From one of the extras on the Serenity DVD we see that Mal was a volunteer, but does that mean as opposed to being drafted? Would the Independents actually have a draft, do you think? And if so, was Zoe drafted, or was she also a volunteer (I loaned my DVD to a friend and my extras are at home instead of here with me at college, or I'd look at that scene over again)?
And while we're at it, how old is everyone? I gathered that River is seventeen or so, and Kaylee is probably a couple years older than her, and Simon is either the same age or slightly older than Kaylee. Apart from Book, I'd wager Mal is the oldest, followed by Jayne, Zoe, Inara and then Wash. It could just be that Inara is more refined and so she seems older than she actually is. Ballparks would be fine, I just need some kind of numbers. (x posted)

Serenity in Ice

Every year Carleton College has an ice sculpting contest over winter mid-term break. This year somebody (I don't know who) did a Serenity sculpture!! I was so glad I had my camera!

WHOA!
WHOA!
WHOA!
I have just discovered the greatness that is Firefly. I had wanted to see Serenity, but I figured seeing Firefly first would be best. I am just so angry with myself for not watching this show while it was on. I am an idiot! I hadn't watched because I hate Sarah Michelle Gellar with a passion and I figured anyone who would cast her in one of his shows must have a screw loose.

I WAS WRONG!!!
Joss Whedon is a genius!
My apologies to him and his fans.
This show was so smart and unique. No wonder it failed ;) Sad, really.
I'm still not on board with the Buffy/Angel thing, but Firefly is magnificent! I miss it already and I just began watching a few weeks ago. I guess all of you are sick of hearing this kind of stuff. I hope you can forgive my coming late to the party and applaud that I showed up at all ;)

I think that's all the gushing for now.
I'm off to learn more Chinese profanity ;)

DVD cover for the UK

I just noticed that Serenity has now appeared on amazon.co.uk, due for release in the UK on the 27th February, and it looks like we're getting a different cover to the scary-looking-River-plus-zombies one. No offence to everyone else, but I am *so* relieved!! >_<

(Apologies if this has been posted before, I don't have time to check at the moment!)

Big Damn Chefs: the International Browncoat Charity Cookbook

I thought I'd let everybody know about our cookbook project and how it's coming along. :)

Big Damn Chefs has over 100 recipes submitted from Browncoats all over the world, and we're looking for more! At the end of this post, I'll list most of the recipes we have so far, so you can get an idea of what sort of recipes we could still be in need of.

We'll be soliciting recipes from our Big Damn Heroes, as well! So the plan is that you'll be seeing recipes from Nathan, Gina, Adam, Alan, Jewel, Morena, Summer, Sean, Ron, Joss, Tim, Shawna, Greg, etc, in the book, too!!

As the title of this post suggests, profits from the sale of this book will be going toward charity. Our chosen charity is Freedom from Hunger, an international development organization working in seventeen countries across the globe, helping hardworking women win life-saving victories against chronic hunger and build healthy lives for their children. Freedom from Hunger brings innovative and sustainable self-help solutions to the fight against chronic hunger and poverty. Together with local partners, they equip families with needed resources to build futures of health, hope and dignity. (http://www.freefromhunger.org/)

Coming soon will also be the details of the cover art contest! The grand prize will be, of course, that your artwork will be used on the cover, and a copy of the book (which, if we're lucky, we might be able to get some autographs in). Runner up prizes are in the works, too. We'll also be needing some black and white illustrations for the inside of the book - it would be great if we had some Firefly/Serenity-cooking themed illos from our own Browncoats!

This could mean anything, but thought you all might appreciate this news regardless:

A friend just saw Nate Fillion, Summer Glau and Gina Torres coming out of one of the exec buildings at Paramount where they are putting together the new CW unit.

Hmmmmm? Will Firefly fly again?
