Because I am? Way out west on an island. The blu-ray player is in Oregon though, but I did just buy a 4 regular DVDs set from a seller in Calgary. Looks like an interesting series! I read a bit about it, including the back of the DVD case. I may even have seen Firefly listed on tv and just didn't know it was sf.

I used to have some ideas for a DC AU which now I have started to recollect and share and fix with the help of some online friends to make an Earth to actually create in the future. And also an idea for the 5earths forum.
How come the Silver Age writers can get trivia facts okay but the writing about other cultures is still bad?
To those who like throwing ideas, I propose to join Project Castafiore.
Project Castafiore is an experiment where you co-create a comic book with hundreds of Internet users.
The experiment will start on March 1st and last ten months.
The artwork will be created by professional comic artist Silvio Speca, who will be driven by the community of participants. Discussions will take place on the free and open access website www.castafiore.org.
The objective is to produce a European-style graphic novel, which will then be distributed freely on the Internet (and maybe printed, we’ll see).
Please give your feedback, as we can still modify a lot of things at this early stage. Does it sound interesting to you? What should we do to make this a success?
(if you feel this would be better in a separate thread, feel free to create one, I don't have sufficient rights)
Paris, May 1900. One fine afternoon, a colorful crowd throngs the Trocadéro square, in the middle of the incessant broom of the cabs and omnibuses that serve the 1900 Paris Exposition.
Indignant complaints arise suddenly from the omnibus coming from Clichy. In issue: Jessie, a 22-year-old woman encumbered by a huge suitcase, who roughly jostles passengers to get out of the vehicle.
The scene has drawn the attention of three elegant young women, who’ve stopped to enjoy the show. They joke openly about Jessie and her enormous baggage (maybe they rushed, hilarious, to help her get off the platform?). Despite her modest allure, Jessie responds from ticking to tick, initiating a dialogue where spirit, irony and saucy allusions mingle.
What do our heroine and these three Parisians of the Belle Epoque say to each other? This is the first challenge of project Castafiore, a collective comic book experiment. Join us at www.castafiore.org
I originally envisioned the following as a film, though it could easily be adapted to work as a comic.
Tales from the Asylum: an anthology horror comic modelled after the old EC horror comics. The Joker, serving as the Cryptkeeper-esque host, would relate tales of Arkham’s most criminally insane inmates from within his padded cell. Batman would be a minor/supporting character whose physical appearance would vary story-to-story, aligning with each inmate's individual twisted perspective.
"We must recognize, and loudly proclaim, that every one, whatever his grade in the old society, whether strong or weak, capable or incapable, has, before everything, THE RIGHT TO LIVE, and that society is bound to share amongst all, without exception, the means of existence it has at its disposal."

Okay. Today it occurred to me that if Braque, Picasso and the other cubists had worked as storyboard artist for Universal Studios back in in the 1930s Lon Chayney Jr. would have starred in squarewolf movies...
