Firefly Fridays, anyone?

Posted by Chris on August 8, 2016 at 10:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Our brigade now has access to DVD copies of episodes of Firefly as they originally aired on Fox back in 2002, with promos, commercials and all. I don't know about you, but as somebody who came late to the party, I'm fascinated by the idea of watching Firefly the way a privileged few had the chance to do it back when it all began. Heck, the commercials themselves would be like watching a time capsule!


I was conjurin' that the brigade might want to have a ser...

Just wanted to take a moment to thank all the sponsors, donors, volunteers and attendees that helped make this year's CSTS Pittsburgh event at the Hollywood Theater the mighty fine shindig that it was (with very special thanks to Geek Pittsburgh, the Hollywood Theater and Sean Faust).  We still don't have an exact dollar figure for our donation to Equality Now because we still need to take care of some event expenses, but when we do know exactly how much we rai...

CSTS 2016 Logo Patches

Posted by Chris on July 11, 2016 at 4:45 PM Comments comments (0)

I regret to inform everybody that we have been notified by CSTS global that this year's logo patches will not go into production until after our July 30 screening.  As a result, they will not be available as prizes this year as they have in the past, and we will also have to suspend our online sale of the patches in our webstore (since shipping would be prohibitively expensive and they won't be ready in time to be picked up at the screening).  We haven't received ...
