#398: Fight Ire with Ire

September 28, 2009

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #397: Art to Heart

Today's big news is a new T-shirt design over in the Multiplex Store, featuring everybody's favorite movie snack — and this one's available in Smalls, as well. (Sorry about the oversight before, ladies. I'm looking into getting some small Copyright shirts in soon.) It's also an American Apparel shirt, so it costs a tiny bit more — but fits fabulously.

I'll get some photos of the new Popcorn shirt up in the next few weeks. The Workplace Romance shirt has dropped to the BARGAIN PRICE of $12.99, by the way! You cannot possibly resist now, can you?

Don't forget about the Kickstarter project, though! (As if you could, because I will not let you.) We're making great progress towards the goal but — all together now — there's still a long way to go!

If you missed it last week, there is another one of "Kurt's" comics like the one from last Thursday up on the Kickstarter Updates page — but in order to see it, you'll have to pledge!

Leonard Nimoy (1931–2015)

Sunday, March 1, 2015

I was never a huge Star Trek fan, exactly. I love some of the early episodes, and I think Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is one of the greatest science fiction movies of all time. I enjoyed Star Trek III and IV, too, for what they were. I read a bunch of the DC Comics Star Trek stuff at that time, because my brother bought them. And I watched a bit of the Next Generation and then fell off the wagon. Kirk and Spock were my Star Trek, and the Star Trek 2–4 “era” was its peak for me, warts and all, because that’s the “era” that really hooked me. And really, for me, it was all about Wrath of Khan.

In addition to playing Mr. Spock, of course, Leonard Nimoy did a lot of other things. He was on Mission: Impossible. He directed a few movies (Three Men and a Baby!). He was a photographer. He was the voice of Civilization IV. But one thing I really loved of his was Standby: Lights, Camera, Action, on Nickelodeon from 1982–1987, which provided a behind the scenes look at movies like Star Trek III, Return of the Jedi, 2010, and more. Nimoy hosted and occasionally interviewed guests like George Lucas. As a budding film nerd in the pre-Internet Dark Ages, behind the scenes specials like Standby: Lights, Camera, Action were hard to come by. I ate that show up.

Anyway, as you’re undoubtedly aware by now, Leonard Nimoy passed away on the 27th. As cartoonists do when they’re sad about these kinds of things, I drew a picture:
