#545: I Know Now What I Must Become

January 3, 2011

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #8: The Blogger; #15: The Blogger Returns ; #46: The Blogger Strikes Back

There are a few other strips with the Blogger in them, but they're not as important.

There are probably a few of you who thought the last strip was a cliffhanger (I know at least one of you did, because he said so in a comment). Sorry. :) It wasn't a cliffhanger. It was an ending. I wasn't sure if I would revisit New Year's after midnight downstairs or not (and ultimately, obviously, decided not), but Jason and Becky's after-midnight time is between the two of them.

If it makes you feel better, they probably shared a friendly peck, but I know you guys, and I know some of you would have blown it out of proportion. ;)

Anyway. For those of you who don't follow the Deleted Scenes updates yet: I reviewed Tangled and The King's Speech last week! And I'll try to get a review of The Green Hornet up later this week (I'll be seeing it tomorrow night thanks to AICN's Capone).

Thanks to everybody who posted a guest strip in the last couple of weeks: Bill Walko, Iris Amelia, Daniel Farrelly, and Pizdzius Swedzioszek! I'll get them added to the Guest Strips section very soon, I swear. Holidays are hectic, y'know?

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:
