Show 116: The One About Leicester and Grande Prairie

Welcome to a currently hot and humid UK!

Already over half of the year has gone and we are well into CSTS 2014.

Odile and I attended the Leicester event earlier in this month and although we spoke with a number of people, time restraints meant that we have only included a couple – sorry!  It was a fabulous event and full marks to Tabbie and her team for all their work on the day.

We also reconnect with Nyssa from the 28th Fighting Swans way, way, way up in the Great WhiteNorth, Grande Prairie, Alberta who fills us in as to the current happenings as to her third CSTS event on 28 September.  If you can support them in any way, you can connect with them via their Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/Fighting28

We are also pleased to learn that there will be a London CSTS event this year in October at The Mad Hatter Pub and you can find all details on their website, here.  We hope to be able to attend and may be we will see you there!  As always, keep up to date with any new CSTS events via cantstoptheserenity.com – click on “find an event”.

We were contacted by John Mullaney (Serenity cut-away artist, still available via QMx; @jonnymakesjam) with a new “Firefly”-inspired song by a friend of his and we’re including it because we think it is very funny and hope you will too.

Now that the Whedonverse Track schedule is available on their website – yet another shameless plug for the “Fans Are Doing It For Themselves” panel on Saturday, 4pm in the International DE room.  Please join Wendy, Mike Dougherty (“Browncoats: Redemption), Les, Kari and Andy (The Signal podcast) as we talk about our efforts to keep The ‘Verse alive.

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.

Of course you can also download the show directly from here! Or listen to us on PLayerFM by clicking here!

In the words of Captain Lazerbeam, “sayonara citizens” and until next time …

Show 115: The One With Sean and Deena (and a homework…)

As promised the second of our two shows for June 2014!

In this show, we speak with Sean Faust about his fab song, “Signal” which is available for download via iTunes or cdbaby and Sean is giving all profits to Equality Now; so if you cannot attend a CSTS event this year, or even just randomly pick an event from www.cantstoptheserenity.com  and buy a ticket (even if you cannot attend) – this is another great way to be able to donate.  It’s a great song!

We also speak with Deena from CSTS Montreal to learn more about how she has organised her event and who knows, her fabulous idea may give others the idea to try it themselves!  Both Odile and I wish CSTS Montreal all the best!

Just a reminder (the first of many, I’m afraid) that if you’re attending DragonCon 2014, 4pm Saturday find our  panel, “Fans Are Doing It For Themselves” hosted by Wendy along with Mike Dougherty and Les and Kari from The Signal.  The location is to be confirmed, but check the Whedon Universe Track schedule.

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.

Of course you can also download the show directly from here!

Show 114: The One With DragonCon Whedon Track Director Mary Moline

To celebrate summer, here is the first of two shows you can expect on your feed this month.

Wendy is rather excited about this one as she was able to speak with the DragonCon Whedon Track Director, Mary Moline, in May – and before she became too busy – about herding the beast that is the Whedon Track.

As part of their chat, they do briefly speak about the panel that Les and Kari from The Signal, along with Mike Dougherty and Wendy will be holding on the Saturday at 4pm.  It’s called “Fans Are Doing For Themselves – keeping The Verse alive through podcasting and fan films” and although we don’t know the allocated room number (please consult the schedule when it becomes available), we really hope that you will be able to join us if you are attending DragonCon this year.

As I said, this is just the first of two shows this month …

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.

Of course you can also download the show directly from here!

New Clue Game Edition – “Firefly”!

Firefly Clue USWe’ve all now become accustomed to the makers of our now “classic” family boardgames such as Monopoly, Clue, Risk giving them a kind of update by releasing a special themed edition.  Remember how much excitement the first Star Wars themed Monopoly edition caused?

Entertainmentearth.com are currently taking pre-orders on a “Firefly” edition of Clue being released in August 2014.  As the website does say that this can can not be shipped to certain locations outside the US, I think it is safe to say that the UK is one of those locations, I’m afraid, as I would imagine the game’s licence is held by a another company as well as we know this game as Cluedo.

Yet again, the current licensing team at Twentieth Century Fox appear to be making up for a lost decade of missed merchandising opportunities …

If you wish to pre-order, please follow the link and don’t forget, Jayne did it in one of the smuggling bolt holes with Book’s taped together Bible …

Show 113: The One From Dallas Comic Con

Not to put to fine a point on it – Dallas Comic Con May 2014 WAS FANTASTIC and huge thanks to everyone I met and said “hello” to – you, and seven other people, are what made it as fabulous as it was!

In this show, of course we talk about the con, along with Tami from the Alamo City Browncoats who tells us about the fan happenings in San Antonio (@AlamoCityBrowncoats, facebook.com/AlamoCityBrowncoats); Shannon and Scott from QMx took time out to talk about their “Hero of Serenity” (qmxonline.com/Malcolm-Reynolds-16-Scale-Master-Series-Statue_p_265.html), their Malcolm Reynolds articulated figure (qmxonline.com/Malcolm-Reynolds-16-Scale-Articulated-Figure_p_286.html) – you can pre-order both of these by following the links – and their forthcoming “Firefly/Serenity” MMO game (keepflying.comfacebook.com/FireflyOnlineGame) to which you can register for – if you have not already done so.

We also have an announcement from the team behind the Leicester CSTS on 6 July (facebook.com/cstsleicester , cstsleicester.weebly.com) AND if you live in the Midlands area of the UK, there is a Facebook page just for you!

Until show 114 …
