I used to think I had a favorite song. It was the same for years and years. As time went on, however, I realized that the concept of a favorite song was flawed. After all, with so many good songs out there, why choose only one? Nowadays, I know that I don’t have a favorite song. I have one or two that get stuck in my head and stick with me for a few days before being replaced by something else.

There is one song that has stuck with me for longer than a few days. In fact, it’s been at the top of my play list for almost two straight months now and I still can’t get enough of it. Hopefully, you’ll all enjoy it as much as I do.

Not a Care in the World

This is something that actually happened a few months ago. I meant to write it up the night it happened, but something came up (it’s hard to tell what it was at this point) and I forgot about it. Over the course of the past couple of months, I’ve been reminded of it in some way and thought about posting it. As I have yet to do it, you can see how successful I’ve been in that endeavor. But, since I was at the location where this took place today, the story is now firmly entrenched in my brain, ready for the telling.

You see, one of my duties at work involves dropping things off at a number of local pharmacies. I was at one that I don’t normally go to, walking the cargo through the parking lot. Off to the side, I start hearing water hitting the ground. It wasn’t raining, so I was curious. I turned and saw a man walking through the parking lot with a stream of liquid shooting out in front of him. Now that I knew where the sound was coming from, I turned back to what I was doing.

Wait a minute…

Liquid doesn’t normally shoot out of someone as they’re walking in parking lots. I turned back again to investigate. Was this guy emptying out a water bottle as he walked?

Nope.

This man was walking through the parking lot, with his member hanging out of his zipper, pissing as he went.

That, my friends, is a level of not giving a shit that I have yet to achieve in my lifetime.

I Aim To Misbehave

The best sci-fi universe out there can be found in the pages of The Erratic Sun. Don’t believe me? Purchase a copy and see for yourself. For those of you who say I’m biased, that I should pick something not of my own creation, I suppose I could pick one that’s a close second.

And that close second would be a galaxy far, far away.

Though not everything in the Star Wars universe has been great, some the movies, novels, and video games set within it have been among the best things I’ve ever watched/read/played. It is a vast landscape full of possibilities. Even the worst of it is better than a lot of things that are out there.

However, while reading something set in a different sci-fi universe, I realized that while Star Wars may be my favorite universe as a whole, it doesn’t contain my favorite sci-fi movie. It was a weird experience because up until then, I didn’t even realize that it was my favorite sci-fi movie. I knew I liked it, but until I actually thought about it, I didn’t realize how much I liked it.

That movie is Serenity.

Joss Whedon has done a lot of good things in his career, but as far as I’m concerned, Serenity is the best, by far. I know, I know. Avengers. I’m right there with you. I love The Avengers. I still think Serenity is his crowning achievement, however.

Serenity took everything that was good about Firefly (which is a great show) and made it even better. The story is better. The interaction between the characters is better. The “villain” is better. Now, I’m not going to say that it’s perfect, but I can’t think of a single flaw in it.

Now I’m going to have to go watch it again.

What about you? What’s your favorite sci-fi movie? Is it set in your favorite sci-fi universe?
