Got to take River to go see and meet...well....River at Pensacon yesterday!! Summer Glau plays River Tam in the show Firefly and movie Serenity. Which is who River was named after!! What a great experience for her!!
Best story from the weekend: after meeting Summer Glau, we chatted briefly about Firefly. I mentioned a video of the ladies from the series featuring the song Defying Gravity [see video below]... she'd never seen it, so I pulled it up on my phone. We watched it together, but I primarily watched her... she smiled with genuine excitement and happiness, almost looking like she'd tear up.. as she handed me back the phone, she said, with the most beautiful smile, "thank you SO much.. that brought back so many wonderful memories.."
Regarding the supposed iconic Charlie Angels pose pictured above, I still wonder how we went from the original iconic pose with the prayer hands and featuring Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson & Jaclyn Smith (see below) to this one with hands outstretched like one person is holding a gun, flanked on either side by another person also holding a gun or karate hands.
The reboot that had Minka Kelly around 2011 is the closest to finding that gun in the middle pose (although they also did the prayer pose), but I doubt anyone remembers that reboot much less copies it.
The film reboot with Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu had nothing like it, they were all doing martial arts poses.
