io9 decided that Firefly
needed a "tight-ass killer 1980s intro." So they cut one together: the article
, or just the intro itself
. A fan's end-credits
, even with a nice slight soupçon of MTM
at the end. Firefly
fans might find it more interesting, though, that io9 noted
a little later in the day that Nathan Fillion had tweeted
on Wednesday night a picture
of Joss Whedon, Alan Tudyk, Nathan Fillion, and Adam Baldwin all looking upward into a bright light, with the text "Together. Again." But ... no
, it doesn't mean that
, unfortunately. [Still, if you need your Simon or Kaylee fix, look to Warehouse 13
next Tuesday, as Maher and Staite are guest-starring together in "Mild-Mannered" (trailer

Interpreting Revelation's "Millenium."
Outside of the all-too-virulent rapture-crazy pre-tribulational dispensationalist premillenialism
permeating JesusLand, some Christians hold to other, more nuanced eschatological alternatives. You've got historic post-tribulational premillenialism
, which places the transformation of the faithful at the final judgment rather than before it; amillenialism
, which regards Christ's "millenial" reign as a symbolic spiritual reign culminating in the last judgment; and postmillenialism
, which sees the millenium as a gradual progression towards goodness and light. Overlapping those, you have the "it's all been fulfilled" preterists
, and their prophecy-party-pooping compatriots, the hyper-preterists
. It's a debate just slightly more fun than the end of the universe
. Meanwhile, the noncanonical apocalypses
sit in a corner, sadly ignored, and sunny Megiddo
is still waiting for some end times action

The campaign for freedom from piped music (aka elevator music or Muzak). A noble cause if ever there was one.

"Because in the end..."
One of the most insightful, engaging, and well written sites (not to mention the one that got plenty of us blogging in the first place) stops updating, at least for the near future; the tear-jerker of a last entry touches on so many things- relationships, art, emotions, careers, etc - it perfectly encapsulates so much of what made the page great. We'll miss you, Jack Saturn.
That being said, I can't wait for the book.
