Ever seen Summer Glau wearing flashy yellow shorts and blue top? Or Brian Austin Green in a silver colored shirt? Or Thomas Dekker in green joggers? Or Lena Headey in a colourful dress and purple tights? Or Richard T. Jones donning a skin-tight suit and afro look. And this on roller skates.
 

TSCC Cast Goes Disco

 
The Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles cast has some fun dancing on "That's the Way I Like It", recorded and published in 1975 by 'KC and the Sunshine Band'. It's like a disco ball exploded onstage. I hope you'll have just as much fun watching this fan made video as I had making it.
 

 

Don't miss Summer Glau and Thomas Dekker dancing on 'You're the one that I want ' and on 'Glad I got you babe'; videos are watchable on the forum.

The Cast from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was out in Hollywood on September 13, 2008 to promote the show at Golden Apple Comics.
 
Actors Brian Austin Green, Garret Dillahunt, Summer Glau, Thomas Dekker, Leven Rambin, Richard T. Jones, and Shirley Manson, showrunner Josh Friedman and executive producer James Middleton were there to meet and greet the fans, as well as sign autographs and participate in a Q&A session. The Q&A followed an early viewing of Episode 2x02, "Automatic for the People".
 
Photographer Watchcaddy kindly shared with us his lovely photos of the TSCC Meet and Greet at Golden Apple Comics.
 
The beautiful Summer Glau!!!
 
She looked very natural and with almost no makeup at all. Very pretty.
 
Yea, there are lots picture of her here, sorry for my bias.
 
The TSCC cast members looked like they were having just as much fun as the fans. Here's a sample of the new photos added to the gallery:

Many Summer Glau fans or people seeing her on screen wonder what is Summer's ethnicity and/or where does her last name 'Glau' come from. I can understand that her fans are curious where Miss Glau, with her wonderfully unique combination of traits both physical and mental, draws her heritage from so that we might better understand her. This Blogpost will give you a few answers and you may even learn a thing or two.
Don't miss the clip i made especially for this Blogpost at the end of the page.
 

Summer Glau photoshoot - CLD Style House dress 2010

Hawaii Five-0 star Grace Park mentioned Summer Glau's ethnicity in a recent interview:
 
Summer Glau guest-starred in last week’s episode of Hawaii Five-0. What was it like to work with her?
She was really cool. We were joking that her name was Summer G. Lau and she was actually of Asian heritage – that’s what Daniel [Dae Kim] kept saying. I didn’t know that her ancestry actually is Irish and German.
 
 
Summer Glau herself said that she was of Scottish - Irish and German origin. She has no Asian origins as some people think.
 
What we learn from Summer Glau's ancestry is as follows:
  • Summer’s father is of German, English, and 1/8th Swiss descent.
  • Summer’s mother is of English, Scottish, and Welsh descent.
 
And now a few words on Summer's last name:
 
"Glau" not only sounds German but is actually of German origin, as stated by Summer Glau herself and proven by Summer's father origins.
But "Glau" is definitively not the modern German word for "glow" (possible translations for glow are : Glühen, Leuchten or Glut), as most people think.
The following gives interesting hints:
According to etymological dictionary websites it is an old German word that once meant or is the root of "klug" - which means clever/astute.

Members of the Serenity cast  have been doing a free signing at HMV Princes Street in Edinburgh on August 24th, 2005. Summer Glau was there along with Nathan Fillion, Morena Baccarin, Adam Baldwin, Gina Torres and Joss Whedon himself.

A lucky fan was there and shared his Scottish adventure with other fans; those who will take the time to read his report, quoted from Firefly.net, will be rewarded with his photos with the cast:

 

Squeeeee. Wednesday August 24th, 2005. What a day.  
 
You know, when my good mate Andy offered me two free tickets to go and see Serenity, I thought...WOW! I'm so lucky. That day is going to rock. Nothing could make it better. 
 
Hehehe. If only I knew. 
 
When I heard that a large chunk of the cast, including Summer Glau, we're going to be doing a free signing in Edinburgh that day in the exact place I was going to be...I...I could have died of happiness! 
 
I could not BELIEVE it. And then when I read Joss Whedon was going??!  Holy frikkin  Yup, thats right... I said ! 
 
So, I had to re-schedule my train plans to make it to Edinburgh in time for this, so I left my house at 4.30 in the morning...and my train journey took 7 hours. But it was so worth it. 
 
Okay...we were told that Nathan, Summer, Jewel, Morena, Adam & Joss would be there. I'd met them all before, except Joss of course, but I was so happy at the thought of seeing them again! Especially Summer!! On the train journey up there, I wrote her a 2-page letter...put it in an envelope on which I wrote "To the beutiful Miss Glau" on. And on the back, I put my address on, just incase she wanted to write back. It's probably unlikely she will though, as I didn't put a "self-addressed stamped envelope" in there, or any international return coupons, but hey, I can dream! 
 
So I got there, and we found out that Jewel wasn't there...  
 
But Gina was!   
 
I was very pleased. Obviously I was sad at not getting to see Jewel...but I'd never met Gina before...and don't know if I'll ever get the chance to again! 
 
I took my Firefly set with me to get it signed. I also took the group photo of the cast that had been signed by all of them except Gina & Sean. Just incase, as it was always uncertain about who was going to be there. 
 
We found out we could only have one thing signed. I was kinda bummed, as I didn't know what to get Gina to sign! So I thought, well, I'll ask her to sign the photo, and everyone else to sign the boxset. 
 
So, we got a little closer...and I caught little glimpses of Adam, and Nathan...Morena too. 
 
And then...here comes the motherload, people. Through a gap in the crowd I saw Summer. And then, she looked over, and our eyes met. 
 
I need to remember to breathe as I type this, cos reliving this moment makes me emotional! 
 
Her face lit up right away, and she smiled and waved over at me and mouthed "Hi!". I was overcome with joy. Obviously I smiled and waved back too! Then I blew her a kiss...and she blew me one back!  I couldn't believe it. 
 
After that, I had tears in my eyes, I was so happy. I could have forgotten everything else and just gone home happy after that. 
 
I was with my friend Jason, he's a big fan of Summer too, and had met her 3 times. 
 
As we got closer, I could hear Gina laughing every now and then, she sounded so bubbly! 
 
Then when me and Jason came to the front of the queue and we're waiting...Summer looked at us and then turned to Morena and said "My boys are here." I was so chuffed, and touched. The thought that she not only remembered us, but called us " her boys " warmed me through and through! 
 
The event itself, was rather unorganised. Everybody was very rushed. There were lots of HMV security gaurds who were very pushy, and they we're quite rude to some people. 
 
Anyway, then we got to speak to Adam. He didn't seem as cheery as he was the last time I met him, to be honest he looked quite tired...I think that with the premiere...and the flights, he must have been worn out! But he was nice, shook my hand, said hello, signed my set, and stood with me for a photo. 
 
Then it was over to Summer & Morena.  Wow! I said hi, and Morena said "Hey you! How are you doing?" So I'm guessing maybe she remembered me from the first con? Who knows! She was wearing a lovely gold outfit that looked companion-like! I told her that it looked lovely. I told Summer that I had written her a letter on the way up... and I gave it to her, she said "Aww, thank you very much." And I told her and Morena that I was going to see Serenity that night!! Summer was really pleased, as she knew I hadn't seen it yet. Morena asked if it was the first time I had seen it, and I said yes, and she said "Ah, wow, you're going to love it!" And then I asked if I could have a photo with them. And Morena said "Sure! Come round here." So I went round the other side of the table (And a few days after someone told me on a thread that all the security gaurds near him started freaking out when I did that.) and I got between the two of them, while Jason took the photo. But the flash didn't go off, so I ad to stay there...between the two of them, while he put the flash on and took another one.  I'd like to point out that I started off evenly between Morena and Summer, and Summer leant in closer to me, so I did likewise! lol! As you would! Then I thanked them and was hussled on. 
 
It was getting quite chaotic. I put my set and the photo down on the table, and it sorta got passed along. I didn't get much time to say anything other than hello to Joss...and I was to nervous to think of anything to say! He's god-like! I couldn't get a photo with him, but managed to snap one of him. 
 
Then it was on to Nathan and Gina. Nathan looked really tired. He wasn't his usual fun self either! Bless him! Gina was lovely though. 
 
I asked if I could have a photo with her. She said sure, so I crouched down next to her, and she asked Nathan to come in too, which was cool! A pic with the Cap'n n Zoe!! 
 
Then I got up, and went to pick up my set, I saw that Gina had signed that instead, so I was like, ah thats cool! And I picked up the photo and Gina goes, "Oh, I think I missed that one." Then she took it and signed it for me! Which was so nice of her! I told her it was lovely to meet her and then we were hussled on. 
 
It was lovely to meet Gina & Joss, and great to see the others again. Especially Summer!

Summer Glau's singular talent and universal appeal have garnered her millions of fans around the world (some of them have find a home here) but she is also a source of inspiration for artists and musicians. Don't expect to find Summer Glau references in Kate Perry or Justin Bieber's latest album though; the artists listed below are independants artists whose music is in most cases freely available for all on the Net.
Here's a non exhaustive list of musical works directly or indirectly inspired by Summer Glau:
 
 

Summer Glau song by John Anealio

'Summer Glau' by John Anealio
 
With little more than an alternate-tuned acoustic guitar and a dog-eared copy of The Hobbit, Sci-Fi Songwriter John Anealio composes and performs geeky anthems for writers, librarians, lovers of Science Fiction, Best Buy customers, and robots. His music sounds like John Mayer, Weezer, and James Taylor playing Dungeons and Dragons together on their iPhones. 
 
This performance of "Summer Glau" was recorded at a House Concert in Maryland in December 2010.

Source and lyrics at John Anealio website


Summer Glau, by Mister Tim.

 

 


 

Firestep a collection of Firefly/Serenity themed Dubstep songs by Elliot Frost

'Firestep' is a 3-track album with Firefly/Serenity themed Dubstep songs by Elliot Frost

 

1. A Leaf on the Wind 03:05, featuring the wonderful voice of Alan Tudyk, performing in the show "Firefly".
 
2. Plastic Rocket 03:10, featuring the voice of the talented Nathan Fillion, performing in the show "Firefly".
 
3. Albatross 03:17, featuring the incredibly talented Summer Glau, performing in the show "Firefly" and audio content from the movie "Serenity". 
 
The unfiltered, raw sound of this song is intended to mimic the way River is unable to filter her emotions because of her stripped amygdalae.

The First Summer by SummerGlau

As strange as it may seem, a Dutch rock band is called SummerGlau. The music and lyrics are not connected to Summer Glau's work though (unless i missed something).

'The First Summer' is a 13-track album, that you can freely listen at Bancamp.

Here's a video of SummerGlau (Band) performing live a song titled 'Winter' in Echt (Holland) on December 14, 2012

Here's an ode to Summer Glau by Gareth Rhodes, a guitarist,singer/songwriter for 18 years.

This overview of Summer Glau inspired songs would not be complete without Keith Urban's music video for his song 'Long Hot Summer', featuring Summer Glau on the beach of Malibu, Los Angeles.
