I Want it This Way

Got a minute? Need a laugh? Actually, it's about 3 minutes, but it's a hoot.

Just a couple of Chinese geek boys being goofy lipsynching a bad pop song, but I think it's a scream. I especially like the even geekier guy in the background just playing his video game and totally ignoring them. Brilliant.

Color my Dance

What is your bellydance color?
At last, a quiz thingy for raqs sharqi dancers! It simply can NOT be a coincidence that green is the color of the costume my sister just brought back from Cairo for me.

Demon Barber of Suquamish

No, I didn't eat anybody, but I did give my mom a haircut today that isn't what I would call "elegant". She's really frustrated with all of the hair people around here, who can't seem to cut in a straight line. Her hair was getting in her eyes and driving her nuts, so I offered to trade haircuts (I needed about 3" whacked off, which I can't do myself due to the length).

Since I cut Gordon's hair all the time, I figured to could do all right. Thing is, he has this thick, wavy/curly hair that is pretty easy to chop into shape. My mom's is straight as a pin. Well, at least her hair is out of her eyes now, but she kind of looks like Joan of Arc.

Serenity on your head!

Geek happiness is finally getting your nifty "Serenity" ball cap in the mail! Wooo! Yes, I cashed in most of my points at the Browncoat site a couple of weeks ago and traded them in for this cool ball cap. Gordon can wear it to work and do his bit for the cause.

50 reasons to see Serenity

What? You haven't seen it yet?! Here's why you should.

Better yet, here's a fellow who speculates on whether C.S. Lewis would have liked Serenity were he still here to see it. He thinks...yes.

Tilbury 2

Still recovering from our slam bang very cool weekend of Renaissance equestrian (and other martial arts) training. I'll be updating the official site soon with more great pics! This one is courtesy Deux Cheveux, who turned out to be a fabulous horseman! See Gordon's blog for more.

Serenity: view the first 9 min!

Just picked this up over at the Browncoats board:

Hello fellow BC's, This was just posted on IMDB forums: the site offers to view first 9 minutes online:

This requires internet explorer and does attempt to install some components to enable streaming view. Now, as a marketing move I believe it can produce fruitful results. The components are by, which provides video streaming solutions, so it's no trojan trap or whatever. I have tested it, and it does show the movie clip.

I tried it and it worked for me. If it hooks you into seeing the film, I've done my job...

Serenity at

A trio of great pieces on Serenity at this one here is a good intro, this one here is on the Libertarian themes in the original TV series, and this one (warning: contains spoilers) develops the ideas of the previous one.

It's Serenity Quiz Time

I'm Zoe. It doesn't get much better.

The Soldier. You are the second in command, and that is fine. You like a chain of command, but only when the one in charge has earned your respect. Those who earn your love or loyalty will find no one better to guard their back.
