If you came here looking for cabridges.com or chrisbridges.com, you were probably trying to find me (or possibly one of a zillion other Chris Bridgeses; we are legion). This particular Chris Bridges is a writer and occasional artist living in Florida. He is married to a beautifully silly wife, has two extremely silly sons, and several extraordinarily silly pets. He enjoys watching YouTube videos of people taking long walks on the beach.
He is also the Webmaster for news-journalonline.com, the web site for The Daytona Beach News-Journal. Webmaster by day, slightly different webmaster by night! He writes an occasional pop culture column there called “Twenty-Four/Seven.” You should read it.
He was also also the writer for the currently-retired webcomic “Save Hiatus,” the story of obsessive fans whose show gets cancelled. It was entirely based from life, even the weird stuff. Possibly especially the weird stuff. Artwork by the amazing Adam Levermore.
He was also the man behind SerenityStuff.com, a site that sought to track down and point at everything made relating to the TV show “Firefly” and the movie “Serenity.” See “obsessive fan,” above. SerenityStuff has since been added to this site and expanded to include all things geeky.
And he was the guy who, when talking online with friends about screenwriter Jane Espenson reporting for strike duty on the first day of the 2007 writers strike, suggested, half-joking, that we should send over a pizza. From that, and the equally obsessive fans who jumped on it, was borne Fans4Writers, a grass-roots group that sought to show support for writers by organizing food drops, food drives, viral campaigns, and to generally get the word out. In December we helped organize Mutant Enemy Day, when over 400 fans showed up to march alongside writers and actors from Joss Whedon’s TV shows. You can read about it here, and see a ton of pictures here.
And he probably did other stuff, too.
