Serenity

I’m not sure yet if we’ll be in Boston or New York on the 30th, but I know what I’m doing … watching Serenity! (not, unfortunately, Santa Cruz as originally planned)

update: from brian in the comments:

Serenity will have some competition on the 30th, as the lavish Henson studio production of Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean’s MirrorMask opens that day as well.

Oh my! I had forgotten that was out there, Henson, Gaiman and McKean. (I wonder what ever happened to Gaiman/Froud Tam-lin project?

One I happen to be impressed by. And I think Gaiman is amazing. But he is also as white (if not as pure) as driven snow. I don’t know. I’m skeptical but intrigued.
