Welcome To The Curios

The Curios have been gathered from near and far. They may be common-as-muck or one-of-a-kind. They may be worth a pretty penny or a dime-a-dozen. They may be horrifying, captivating, loathsome, or scintillating.

Whatever the cause of their creation, hopefully they bring enjoyment to someone out there.


The Big Band - The Ballad of Serenity

Recorded and mastered in under an hour*, The Big Band attempted to beef up 'The Ballad of Serenity', the mildly limp theme song from the brilliant and all-too-shortlived television show 'Firefly'.

The theme song, written by Joss Whedon and originally performed by Sonny Rhodes, is... not brilliant and it took me a long time to get over its distinct lack of awesomeness, especially when the show itself was so incredibly awesome.

The Big Band originally intended to Motorhead-ise their version but ended up channeling The Misfits instead.

* and uploaded to the internet in under 3 hours. The quickest turnaround for a Big Band track thus far.

Why??? Do I need to grab a copy of my legally-bought DVDs every time I get a hankering to hear the theme song???


  1. And it took Fox 20 minutes to take it off the 'net. Pooh.

  2. Bloody Fox! Why do they hate Firefly so much???
