Can't Take The Sky is a new radio station for those who enjoy the music of Joss Whedon's Firefly and Serenity: folk, Firefilk, filk, Asian, soundtracks, music about space, science fiction songs, etc. It's Browncoat radio!


Ask yourself how you would like to be known. Don't let yourself be determined by others. And this is especially true where young people are concerned, because everybody wants to determine them. And they have very few defenses against that. So I say, for God's sake, you know, don't let other people tell you who you are. If I had let people tell me who I was, I would have dropped back there somewhere. Determine who you are, and don't let anybody else do it for you. That's the best advice I can give a young person.
- N. Scott Momaday, 2001 interview
