I could have told you this was going to happen:
This playset has an interesting history. Originally the design was put up on the LEGO CUUSOO site with the possibility of becoming an actual LEGO branded product with a required 10,000 votes. After just a couple of months, in what must have been some sort of speed record, all votes were obtained and success seemed imminent. Much to the chagrin of supporters everywhere, the [...]
I have, and need, no better excuse than that for this:
What’s that, you say? It looks remarkably like something from some movie or television series you might have seen once upon a time?
I have no idea what you are talking about.
None at all.
In all seriousness, this is far from an every-day carry rig, for a variety of reasons, but the TT-33 is far from [...]
That is perhaps the stillest Pixel has ever been wearing that hat…

So in the process of discussing the logistics of how to blow up my mortgage, the following conversation transpired:
@bobslaughter: @linoge_wotc NP put me down as interested then. BTW, have you ever told @adamsbaldwin about your copy of Vera?
@linoge_wotc: @bobslaughter I did. Even sent him this:http://tinyurl.com/culss9y No response.@adamsbaldwin
@adamsbaldwin: @linoge_wotc Purrfect! @bobslaughter
I probably came off sounding like a whiny fanboi, but I dare say that constitutes a “win” regardless; Nancy R.’s response [...]
So the Jayne Kittehs are on I Can Haz Cheezburger, here and here.
I think you are supposed to go vote for them and then maybe they will end up on the front page? I honestly cannot say I am terribly familiar with how the Cheezburger system works…

Huh. Apparently it has been ten years since Firefly first aired (in truth, the anniversary will come on 20SEP12).
As I told someone after a particularly strenuous karate class, "So this is what getting old feels like…"
I will confess that I have never seen Firefly on network television; at the time it first aired (out of order, irregularly, and at strange timeslots, thanks to the idiots at Fox), I was in college, [...]
Alright, so I have taken your input onboard, expanded by abilities with my image-editing program (you are never going to guess what I am using to do this), and churned out a few more options:
A: The original arrangement with a new font – “Quadrata” – rather than the Papyrus that everyone apparently hates (even though it is the unofficial Firefly font).
B: A centered-text version using a font apparently based of [...]
Dear LEGO executives,
Seriously. Explain to me exactly how the Firefly/Serenity ‘verse "contain[s] content that is not appropriate for our core target audience of children ages 6-11", but a movie franchise that features face-melting Nazis and cannibals who kidnap, brainwash, and enslave children and then eventually rip out their hearts does not? Or how about another universe where millions (billions?) of sentient creatures die and a world gets [...]
For the uninitiated:
And, yes, I know, wrong t-shirt and gun, no jacket, and Mr. Cobb has a lot of muscle on me, but still…

DO IT. NOW.

At 1138 today, 1 With a Bullet made the correct guess of "Short Barrel Saiga", and, in fairness, lucusloc was this close on the very first picture, but he went a slightly different direction with his guess.
Anywise, here is the new toy:
Not my best work, but this week has been crazy busy at work, so I have not had a chance to take any more pictures… you can [...]
Why are awesome t-shirts always so expensive?
Also this one, and this one, and this one, and this one, and…

By now, my readers should be more than aware of the fact that I am a proud Browncoat – I missed Firefly when it first aired on Fox, but on my parents’ urgings, I found the DVDs, and I am pretty sure I watched the entire series all the way through once I started. And then found time to watch it again. And have since watched it more times than I probably care to count. [...]
Once again, Chris Muir knocks it clean out of the park:
If you do not understand the reference, I do not know you…
If you ever need something random to give me, a set of these (or even one) would do just fine.

Thankfully, this is not a concern for me, from various directions, but I have to admit that it would factor in:
(Courtesy of Alan.)
On the one hand, it could be very easily argued that I am remarkably behind the curve on this, especially given my status as a Browncoat.
On the other hand, I was biding my time to see where this might go, and whether or not it was even going to clear the strip.
Regardless, here is how it is.
In a recent interview, Nathan Fillion (otherwise known as Captain Malcolm Reynolds) said [...]
