the great
Luke Ski
Every once and a while I gotta post a song that speaks to my core fanbase, fandom culture geeks like myself. This song is about one of that culture's most revered sci-fi films of the past decade, "Serenity", Joss Whedon's 2005 movie based on the cancelled-after-only-one-season-by-the-idiots-at-Fox TV show, "Firefly". So if you're really intertested in understanding the jokes in this song, you'll only have to sit through one awesome, hilarious, action-packed, 2-hour movie, and also maybe go to it's IMDB page and click around to find out what other projects Joss and the cast have been working on since then, which I pepper references to throughout the song. If you don't feel like doing any of that, just pretend this is one of those quirky nonsense songs by TV's Kyle that for some reason is sung to the tune of "The Remedy [I Won't Worry]" by Jason Mraz, also from 2005.

It should also be noted that this song idea was resurrected from the notebooks of my past thanks to the commenting listeners of my podcast "Bad Rapport", who demanded that this song become a reality last year during the "U Pick Luke's FuMP" event. To all of them, and to all the Browncoats everywhere, this one's for you. [And if you haven't heard my song about "Firefly", titled "A Man Named Jayne", you can get the MP3 for 99 cents at my website.]

Music by Benjamin "Holy crap, I can't believe he managed to make that background track in only 6 days!" Stahl.

Auto-tune by Jace McLain.

This song is now available on the following CDs:

FIRST! :) I haven't had a chance to listen yet, but this song looked lonely. I LOVE the movie so I look forward to hearing the song. [Hilariously I originally typed "siong" which my Android corrected to "Simon".]

This song is so shiny!! Thanks for premiering it at PenguiCon, you are right: the studio version is even better (and the live premier was fantastic to begin with).

I rather the Possible Ocsar Firefly song Captain Mal (Aiming to Misbehave). Your singing voice for this Luke sounds kinda painful

Cool, the movie is actually on SyFy tonight, surprised I haven't seen it before, it's my type of theme. Song sounded great, looking forward to getting more of the jokes :)
