When I first started blogging, I noticed that a bunch of the bloggers I followed were huge fans of Serenity and Firefly. I made a mental note to check it out, perhaps rent the DVD or watch the series on Hulu sometime, but ever really got around to it.
Then one day I followed a trackback from my blog to I Aim To Misbehave, and I noticed a quote Captain Tightpants had on his wall:
"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds
For some reason it intrigued me, so I Googled it, and the next day I bought the Serenity DVD. So I guess you could say that he is the man responsible for making me a fan.
I figure any blogger with a Malcom Reynolds avatar and a Captain Mal quote on his wall is my kind of people, and that suspicion was confirmed when he signed on to raise funds for Kilted to Kick Cancer.
He's a cop, a libertarian, a former soldier, a shooter and Second Amendment advocate, and you can support his fundraising efforts for the LiveStrong here. Drop by his blog and let him you know you appreciate what he's doing, and drop a few bucks in the kitty for cancer research while you're there. If even 20 of you donated $5 each, that's $100 toward a very worthy cause.
