#50: Git-R-Done!

March 27, 2006

Notes from the Manager

For those of your who missed the announcement last week, Multiplex now has its own discussion forums. Join other Multiplex readers talk about the strip, movies, or whatever you like. As a special thank-you to all the movie theater employees who read and support Multiplex, there is a special area in the forum set aside solely for them.

Oh, and… NUMBER 50! Hooray for Multiplex, and thank you for reading these past eight months (or whatever), everybody. Tell a friend about your favorite movie theater employee-themed webcomic today. :)

In honor of the 50th strip, an Extras section has been added to the Multiplex site. It's pretty bare right now, but it has the official Multiplex theme song, a twelve-second bit of fun called "(Mutilate Us)" (used with permission from the indie pop band AM/FM's Mutilate Us album). Check it out, and may it forever be ingrained in your mind when you read Multiplex.

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:
