Show 150: The One From The Browncoat Family Reunion

bfu-2016Welcome to the January Sending A Wave – and a milestone of the 150th show!

In December 2016, Wendy attended the 10th anniversary event for 2006’s now “fabled” B3 Back-Up Bash in Los Angeles.  As the event drew nearer, it was decided to rename it the “Browncoat Family Reunion” and I’m pleased to say that that was exactly what it felt like.

I was able to see old friends, and re-acquaint myself with fellow fans not seen for a decade.

Thanks to Drew and Sheelagh from the Alberta Browncoats for their quintessential Canadian hospitality by allowing me to roomshare; to Scott Atkins for not only reminding people of the 10th anniversary, but also being a chauffeur for part of the weekend; and to Greg and Suzanne Edmonson for coming out to see out us

Show 111: The One Not From EM-Con

Thanks for joining us for our March show!

This month Wendy speaks with Steve Barnett (@sine_cera_carp) about how he is helping keeping The ‘Verse alive through his hip flasks available via his store on Etsy – https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/SineCeraCarpentry and also to Natalie Jones, one of the organizers for CSTS Wales who are kicking off 2014’s Can’t Stop The Serenity season with their event in Blackwood on 14 April.  All details can be found on their website http://cstswales.webs.com/

We also very briefly talk about our second “Firefly” RPG play and at some point, if Ryan (our GM) can stop showing us how wonderfully creative he is not only in his game devising, but also with the incredible props for the game he makes, he will be editing the full play we recorded and it will be released on our feed if you wish to hear just how we got on.

As always, we hope you will enjoy the show and if you do, you can leave comments here or on our Facebook page or Twitter.

September Bonus Show: PDX Browncoats and TFAW, Portland

I learned about Saturday’s (22 September) 10th Anniversary shindig hosted by the PDX Browncoats and Things From Another World happening in Portland, um, Sunday …  Faster than you can yell, “Summer!!!” TFAW’s Elizabeth Forsythe had not only kindly agreed to speak with me about it but had also rounded up our friend, Anna Snyder, and Kara Helgren from the PDX Browncoats as well.  We recorded this on Tuesday night, where I dazzled all with my very thorough knowledge of the exact date when “Firefly” first aired in the US …

Both Odile and myself wish everyone a great time on Saturday and thanks again to Elizabeth, Anna and Kara for being available on Tuesday.

As always, we hope you will enjoy the show and if you do, you can leave comments here or on our Facebook page or Twitter.

You can find our podcast on itunes, here is a direct link to our page.

If you use iTunes as your podcatcher, please leave us a review.

Alternative “SERENITY” one-sheet

Just perusing through my latest The Mary Sue daily round-up when an article concerning fan-made one sheet (film) poster artwork caught my eye.  You can read the entire article here.

The artist is Adam Rabalais and you can look at more of his work at his website, here.

Just this “SERENITY” poster art is lovely:

Serenity LEGO playset

The makers of LEGO do an amazing thing, they allow us to suggest new playsets.  So a “Firefly/SERENITY” fan has submitted his idea for a “Serenity” playset with crew and it looking for the prerequisite 10k supporters to take this to the next stage with the company.

If you want to find out more and to support, please go here.

Good luck!
