Browncoat radio: "Can't Take the Sky" (xposted)

For those of you who didn't know, I run an online radio station called "Can't Take the Sky" at Live365. It's description: Radio for folks who enjoy the music of Joss Whedon's Firefly and Serenity. Folk, Firefilk, Filk, Asian, Soundtracks, music about space, scifi, etc. Browncoat radio! :)

I'd love it if you all tried it out. :) You can get to it at:

It seems to work best with Explorer, by the way, but it works with other browsers, too.

And if you'd like to help with getting the word out about it, feel free to use the following banner in your sig lines or elsewhere...

Driving down to L.A. to support Joss and the writers

Hey guys!

As most of you know by now, there will be a Mutant Enemy Strike Day on December 7, 2007 (it's a Friday). I've been lamenting the fact that I wish I was down in L.A. to join the picket line so when I heard about the ME Day, I thought, this is my chance!

The problem? I'm not in L.A. at all. My (not-so-military) base is Vancouver, BC. I also happen to be a student who cannot afford to fly down for a couple of days. And Greyhound would have me spend more time on the bus than in Los Angeles...

So. I figure why not drive down? It's only 20 hours away! But I need a companion (not THAT way), or possibly two, or three! (The more the merrier!) Y'know, so that I don't kill myself driving for 20 hours on my own and also because it would bring down costs for everyone. I can get a discount rate for an hotel room, too, so all in all if I could find fellow Browncoats to drive down with me, it could be feasible for minimum expenses!

In short... are you a driver's-license-owning Browncoat in support of the strike? Do you wish you could be there on Mutant Enemy Day? Do you live in Vancouver or somewhere on the coast between Vancouver and Los Angeles? Then let's make it happen!! Let me know here if you're interested, and we can try to work something out. It's a little (completely, River-style) crazy, but it's doable, and how fun would it be to get to be there for the writers?

Out of the mouths...

of studio execs.

(Opens to YouTube video that starts right away)

Somebody had commented that they felt the writers were being selfish in striking because they should think of the fans.

Studios that make a billion dollars a year in just online media profit, where writers, actors and directors of those shows will see *not one dime* of that profit -- now THOSE people are selfish.
