FireFly, for the uninitiated, is/was Joss "Buffy" Weadon's short run Sci-Fi Western. Set five hundred years in the future, the crew of the Firefly-class spaceship "Serenity" will take any job, legal or illegal, to keep fuel in the tanks and food on the table.
But things get a bit more complicated after they take on a passenger wanted by the new totalitarian Alliance regime. Now they find themselves on the run, desperate to steer clear of Alliance ships and the flesh-eating Reavers who live on the fringes of space.
They only got to make 15 episodes before FOX pulled the plug, but I assure you that it had nothing to do with a lack of quality. (in fact, part of me thinks it had more to do with conservative FOX honchos getting their panties in a bunch over the whole "rebels=good/conformists=bad" themes). It had top notch special effects (Emmy wining in fact - Outstanding Special Visual Effects For A Series, 2003). Add to that superb writing, direction, and set design. Not to mention some of the most believable acting I have ever seen on TV, Sci-Fi or otherwise.
Rent it... Buy it... whatever it takes... just SEE IT. you owe it to yourself to see what American Televison could be if only the mother-humping Tyen-shung duh ee-DWAY-BUN-RO at foxcorp pulled their heads out of their goram HOE-tze duh PEE-goo once and a while.
P.S. "FireFly: The Movie" is already in production. YEEEEEEEEAAAAAAHHHHH!

Just wanted to say I really dug the Alton "zombie". It's probably the closest any artist has ever come to capturing the "real me". And you know what, brains are good eats, especially with caper butter.
Would you mind if I posted your art on my website, altonbrown.com? I'd give credit where it's due.
Alton Brown is for the uninitiated, the creator and host of the single best cooking show I have yet to see. the show is called Good Eats and I encourage you all to watch it. the Alton "zombie" he mentions is this

Dont think Zombies are a threat? Take a gander at this Zombie Infection Simulation v2 or this one Zombie Infection Simulation v2.3 and lastly, this one Zombie Infection Simulation 3d
"but" i hear you saying "zombies arn't real". HAH! Fools! read the Zombie Survival Guide and if that doen't do it for you browse the The Federal Vampire and Zombie Agency
Now i don't like playing the role of an alarmist. But the makers of the Zombie Alert do.
Now to try to take the edge off the discovery that the undead shuffle among us... how about Zombie Porn?... Zombie chick are Hot! -- sorta... never mind.
How about finding out what kind of Zombie are you?
And if all this failed, turn to booze.

"My wife and I were invited over to a neighbor's home 12 days ago where [General Wesley] Clark told those gathered that certain people, acting on behalf of the Bush administration, called him immediately after the attacks on September 11th and asked him to go on TV to tell the country that Saddam Hussein was "involved" in the attacks. He asked them for proof, but they couldn't provide any. He refused their request."

Afraid of the Dark? You Should Be!
Evernight is out and should be in stores next Monday! It's available at PEG's online store right now! OR... grab the 40-page Player's Section from Evernight for 6 bucks. It's available on RPGNOW.COM. This way players have everything they need without having to buy another copy or sharing. The GM can also preserve his book--and hide his secrets--without having to pass the only copy around. Best of all, they're including a "site license" for you to print and hand out the Player's Section to all the player characters in your game!... oh ... AND IT'S FULL OF MY ART!!!!

|FROM ZEKE SPARKS|
"Getting to color Cheyenne's great art work for the Action Deck has been a real treat! His images are so strong and lively that they practically color themselves. It was rare that I had to re-think my original color pallet for any of these pieces.
The deck is split into four different genres (one for each suit) Fantasy for Spades, Pulp for Hearts, Sci-fi for Diamonds and Modern Horror for Clubs. Each face card and each ace gets it's own illustration....." Get the Rest Here
Aww... I love you to Zeke.

Looks like I got the cover! Using color versions of the black and white art I did for the Savage World Action Deck, Zeke over at Pinnacle has made the all genre collage cover for the game... I'm so proud.
