#546: Natural Born Blogger

January 5, 2011

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #545: I Know Now What I Must Become

Another surprise update! (That's what RSS feeds and Twitter and Facebook and iPhone apps and shiz like that are all for, y'all.)

There will be two more updates: one hand-drawn, one regular one… and I'm not sure which day they'll go up. So, y'know, check back.

Finalized details for my signing next weekend at Acme Books & Comics in Peoria, Illinois: It will be on Saturday, January 15th from 12pm to 3pm. I'll be signing books and stuff like that. Fun times!

I'll be promoting the book and the strip and the signing on WMDB 1470 on the Greg & Dan Show on Friday the 14th (bright and early at 8:10am, but they put segments up as a podcast, so I'll link it up for youse guys after the fact if you're interested in that noise). I'm not sure how long I'll be on. Probably like five minutes. :1

So: short version of my Green Hornet review (which will be up in the near future at Deleted Scenes): it's funny, it's fun, the action is terrific (but there's not enough of it)… aaaand, unfortunately, most of the best, insane Gondry-esque shots I was hoping for are in the trailer, save for one sequence near the end that's pretty hilariously bizarre. I'd have enjoyed myself more if they had cranked up the crazy.

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:
