Are you a fan of Firefly? Then you'll love our new music project, Leaves on the Wind!

Keep an eye on our Browncoats page to follow our progress!

Hey!  So what's happening?  

I was thinking of taking one of those pictures like everyone has been posting on facebook about going back to school but then I remembered; I'm not going back to school.*  I kind of miss going to college, you know, fall in New England, throwing a frisbee in the quad, snow sledding on the cafeteria trays, being infatuated with the girl with the pony tail driving a Jetta, playing all of "An American Prayer" on the college radio station, almost passing algebra, having a roommate… Read more
