monday musings: you can't take the sky from me.

This week I want to share something I actually stumbled across on my internet roamings last night. I am a huge fan of Joss Whedon's old series Firefly as well as the movie Serenity that takes place in the same universe.

For those of you who haven't been exposed to the awesomeness of this universe, it's basically the story of a mercenary captain and his crew navigating their way through a futuristic western/sci-fi universe. It is very much a Space Western with some magical lure that takes fans and turns them into fanatics (also known as Browncoats). I happen to consider myself among the latter. Not only do I own and regularly rewatch the series, but I also have a license plate holder on my car that reads: A Leaf on the Wind-Wash is my co-pilot. (I briefly considered taking a picture, but then thought it perhaps not completely wise to so proudly display my license numbers...).
Anyway, about my discovery. A rapper by the name of Adam WarRock apparently compiled a rap album based on the series. Each song is based on a character. A lot of them hold snippets from episodes and feature riffs from the show's awesome soundtrack.

Here's the song based on Mal, the ship's captain:

If you love it, then you can download the entire album for free here. I would highly recommend doing so. It's awesome.


  1. You must have seen the marathon on the weekend. My husband watched it all.

    PS. Saw on twitter you have a butternut squash risotto recipe. Think you can post it for us? Or link us to it? :)

  2. Of course! I can't vouch for it yet, because I haven't made it before. My husband bought a butternut squash at the grocery store and I had had to search out recipes that looked good to make with it. I found this one and decided to give it a whirl.


  3. Thanks! Hubby and I have been on a risotto kick lately. Anything with butternut squash is usually delicious. I'll have to give it a try sometime this week.
