Part 2 of the eTrektion saga is here: TJI #42, "Invited candidates for Trek position announced." By the way, should I keep calling it the eTrektion saga, or is that too crude and better kept a one-off joke?

Crude Joke? It seems okay to me.

Heh.

Heheheh.

Heheheheheheh.

I am slightly disappointed by the lack of mention of Aaron Sorkin. Because knowing what a huge fan of TWW you are Zeke, I'm sure you could have had fun with that one.

Yeah, but then I would've had to kill him, so it's probably for the best.

He is working on an actual comic at the moment, though I forget which one. And this is aside from the Firefly comic that I've heard rumours of.

Has anyone else Googled eTrektion? It's... erm, interesting.

The TJI main page seems to believe it's 2003 still.

I think that's going to be changed once Zeke gets TJI fully PHP'd, or so I understand.

It's tempting... but in all honesty, Jedi, I haven't watched enough TWW to even justify my bias against it, let alone make any good jokes about Sorkin.

Whedon is currently writing a new X-Men comic called Astonishing X-Men; JMS has been writing Amazing Spider-Man, Marvel's cornerstone title, for a couple of years now. They're both pretty good if the issues I've read are any indication. An even bigger name in Marvel's pantheon is Kevin Smith -- he brilliantly relaunched Daredevil a few years ago and has a Spider-Man miniseries in progress. (He's also done a Green Arrow arc for DC.)

I've been expecting that bug report for a while, but I'm surprised no one mentioned how unbalanced the columns of this article were. (It's probably just because antodav didn't get here in time.) I uploaded in a rush last night and forgot to check the position of the column break. It's better now.

Actually, I was just embarrassed that I only had two full articles in 2004. Now that I have more, I'll sequester the 2003s to their own page.

The main TJI page is up to date now. By the way, does anyone remember who Weston Smythe is?

Hehe, so true! Joss respects feminism just as much as *Joe Millionaire respects the rest of the world.

:wink:

I'm not sure whether you know my politics, Opie, but if you do, you know what a lefthanded compliment that is.

Nobody joined what?

Compliment? Sounds to me like he just zinged Bush. And how.
