Subject: I still think Frohike's the Dad of Scully's Baby
While everyone's talking comics, let's be sure to mention the brand-spanking-new
one-shot Lone Gunmen comic from Dark Horse. It's very well done, and word
has it that Dark Horse has been bowled over by the positive response. More
Lone Gunmen comics may follow -- if, that is, Dark Horse shows more sense
than Fox and recognizes they've got a good thing in Byers, Langly, and Frohike.
In memory of a show gone too soon, allow me to offer a sciku:
It's Frohike's kid
Langly's kung foo is the best
But I love Byers
If any of the Gunmen could have gotten Scully's babymaking freak on, it's
Frohike. But I don't know if Mulder would be smooching her like that if that
was the case.
Subject: Re: Stephen King's new TV
Lemme be the FIRST! (OK the worst, but hey..)
When has it been a good idea for the King to cross media? I went into a state
of MISERY when I heard about IT. Made me want to commit hari-CARRIE, and leave
a GREEN MILE of slobber SHINING down into some dark basement filled with rats.
And I have a request- play "Sister Christian" by Night Ranger.
Sorry, rhythman. No free music. You want us to get Napsterized or something?
Subject: I agree with runewitch
I totally agree that it sucks that the people spitting out what's supposed
to be entertainment often have female characters take their clothes off to
make the story interesting!
I also agree that there's nothing wrong with a woman expressing her own sexuality,
and it doesn't make her a slut if she does. (email@example.com)
Especially if she's Jessica Alba.
Subject: A Disgruntled Grunt Poses a Poser
I'm not particularly disgruntled, I'm not really a grunt, I'm technically
posing two questions, and neither are posers. Now that I have destroyed all
of your childhood illusions, I have a mere two questions.
I will answer as best I may.
Firstly, can you tell me what happened to Zealot.com after it just froze
some months back? And if you can but don't want to, can you link me somewhere
that will explain it? And if you can't tell me why, will you tell me who is
responsible for you not being allowed to tell me, so I can find said person/persons
and quietly disconnect them from worldly concerns so that you may be free
to do any telling you damn well please?
YES, THAT'S RIGHT, I'M GOING TO BREAK THEIR FINGERS UNTIL THEY BECOME MONKS.
No need for all that trouble. For you newcomers, our grunt here is asking
about Zealot.com, the science fiction website which many of the founders of
RevolutionSF founded and built from 1999 to 2001 while working for Hecklers
The answer is, we all got fired. The whole company. Well, all except the
three founders and one networking guy and one ad sales executive. Something
about spending untold scads of money without earning very much. But two of the
three founders quit a couple weeks later, and the ad sales exec is gone now,
too (something about not getting a paycheck for the past month - people can
be so inflexible!), so it's pretty much down to the two of them, now. Neither
gives a flip about Zealot, so it's stuck there until they decide to kill it
or they talk more investors out of venture capital and hire a new staff.
The second and much more important question I will write in all caps, because
it's just that important: IS THERE ANY LEGAL OR OBLIGATORY CONNECTION BETWEEN
THIS SITE AND HECKLERS ONLINE?
No, by which I mean HELL NO. RevolutionSF is owned and trademarked by Revolution
Web Development, Inc., of which I am the founder and sole shareholder, and I
have a big stack of legal documents (not to mention legal bills) to say so.
Because Hecklers Online officially sucks, and, damn PlayBoy. Don't burn me
alive, I'll say it again: Damn PlayBoy.
Now, now. Let's not say anything rash about Playboy. That magazine
publishes some fine, fine articles. With hefty, well-oiled, firm young writing.
NOW burn me alive, I've said what I came to say. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Well, okay, then. We'll be over at eleven.
Subject: Oh, goodness.
I wasn't expecting to make the headline of Subspace -- actually I wasn't
necessarily expecting my entire article to be in there :) Good damned thing
I didn't go into more detail. Heh!
I have to share this with y'all, because I'm just a glutton for attention.
Check out my site at Elfwood, which is FINALLY back up & running. In particular,
check out the Half-Orc (Myev) female towards the bottom. She's one of the
characters I play now in D&D -- a 3/3 Sorcerer/Barbarian.
I drew her because I was greatly disappointed with the female orc that was
in the Player's Handbook, which is no more than a male orc in drag :P
Yes, I'm aware my stuff has nowhere near the talent and polish of H(RSF)G
Todd's, but I'm still proud of my stuff, damnit :) (email@example.com)
That's okay. We can't all be as skillful as Todd (that being Todd Shearer,
RevolutionSF art guy), and your stuff is pretty dang good anyway. Let us know
when you update it!
As for detail, well, I'm sure Joe would do his editing magic if I my glasses
get too foggy to keep the entries clean. It's not like he hasn't had to, before.
