Serenity Charity Screening

Sunday was the annual charity screening of the movie Serenity [Wikipedia] and the After the Credits podcast crew (Colleen, Marina and Dale) were there:

Can't Stop the Serenity 2008

Wondering about my fancy chapeau? You'll find your answer here: Jayne Hats ... It's pretty cunning, don't 'cha think? A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything.

Can't Stop the Serenity Poster 2008Quick back story on the event: There was a short lived but really excellent TV show named Firefly [Wikipedia]. Though it was cancelled it picked up a phenomenal fan base. It sold so well on DVD a follow-on movie named Serenity was made. Sadly, the movie didn't make enough for sequels. But remember the fans (known as Browncoats, explanation here) who bought all the DVDs? Give or take a year after Serenity's theatrical release Browncoats brought together the idea of good works and favourite things: they decided to give Joss a birthday present by putting on a charity screening of Serenity to raise money for Equality Now, a charity with a link to his mother. The event was a success. It subsequently grew out of the birthday present angle and simply became an annual fundraiser: Can't Stop the Serenity. The Vancouver proceeds also benefit the BC Women's Hospital & Health Centre.

Seeing the movie is great. Seeing it with a large group of friends is awesome. Knowing it benefits a good cause: smugsville!

Congratulations and a big thank you to Gayle for making it all happen in Vancouver!
