#721: Tear It Down

July 23, 2012

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #720: You Jinxed It

To be continued on Thursday, naturally.

A couple of you have asked me what I think about the shooting in Aurora, Colorado, so I'll talk about that briefly, I guess:

I know I made light of the Philadelphia movie theater shooting a few years back, but… well, you know, nobody died there. Nobody walked into that theater thinking, "Hey, I'm going to kill a bunch of people." It seemed a different sort of situation.

I'm not going to bring this up in Multiplex in the immediate future, mostly because I'm in the middle of this zombie story, so there's no room for it, but also because I just don't want to give that little psycho any more ink. It's a terrible tragedy, and I hope the little mother fucker who inflicted it on Aurora, Colorado, gets what's coming to him, and that's all I really have to say about it right now.

Sadly enough, it may end up having to have implications on Multiplex, anyway — particularly related to the costumes and such… so it might have to come up in some fashion. But I'll worry about that when I need to.

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:
