13 April 2009 @ 15:24There are fans, and then there are Browncoats

Going to Walmart can be both an educational and scary experience. I learned today what a “browncoat” is. It’s a hardcore fan of Joss Whedon’s “Firefly” televison series. Some people might consider this reason enough to do their shopping online.

    Had a dream that I was trying to watch Firefly but @Zak_Bagans kept tickling me. Weird.

    @noelrk Fair enough. It is very easy to get burned out on Firefly talk.

    @StephanieEDiaz My fellow Browncoat! You get an automatic follow-back! (Please don't be a serial killer!)

    Where did you get that picture?

  2. Jon | 15 Feb 2010 @ 7:47 #

    I took the photo myself.

  3. Zephyr | 15 Feb 2010 @ 9:11 #

    Are you a browncoat? Do you live in Alabama?

  4. Zephyr | 15 Feb 2010 @ 9:12 #

    curious to know, as I am in that picture.

  5. Jon | 15 Feb 2010 @ 9:19 #

    No, I’m not a Browncoat. I’m a sci-fi fan, but somehow I missed Firefly movie. Yes, I do live in Alabama.

    I hope I didn’t offend anyone with the photo.

  6. Zephyr | 15 Feb 2010 @ 9:25 #

    Why would we be offended? We love being Browncoats. :) Be on the look-out for us in late March, we’re having another Shindig then. e-mail me, we might be able to wrangle you an invite. ;)

  7. Penn | 15 Feb 2010 @ 13:28 #

    heeeeey…those are my fellow 76th-ers!!!

    all around awesome people :)

  8. lost | 15 Feb 2010 @ 13:54 #

    Those are some shiny people you found there!

  9. Aelwulf | 15 Feb 2010 @ 13:55 #

    Did someone tell the Colonel there’s no My Little Pony in the other bin? He’s looking lost. ;C)

    Thanks for the pic, it’s good to see the cohorts out & about.

  10. Cpt. Alex | 15 Feb 2010 @ 18:12 #

    Wow, what a great shot of us checking out the cheapie movies at Wal-Mart. Thankfully, Serenity wasn’t in that bin. ;)

    He was looking for Hannah Montana, Jimi-Bro! And, I see about 3 inches of my shoulder next to Ken…I would be behind the price sign!

  12. Sgt. Buchanan | 15 Feb 2010 @ 21:46 #

    Hey, I know those crazy kids…! Can’t wait to do a town raid with you guys sometime! Just need to get a Type A jacket made sometime; Type B’s don’t go to town as well…Maybe I’ll just get a “Mal Standard” Browncoat instead. If we have another winter like this one, I could justify it! :)

  13. Nandaio | 06 Dec 2010 @ 14:22 #

    I recently got into Firefly (I know, very late start since I’ve gone to dragoncon for the past 5 years and Browncoats are EVERYWHERE there)…but I am also in Alabama, and sometimes forget there are awesome people here. Shiny..very very shiny.

    Someone please send me a message on DA and let me know where you’re from, I’d love to meet up at a con sometime ^__^
