#509: Concessions, Part Two

September 10, 2010

Notes from the Manager

The Multiplex iPhone app has been approved and is now available in the App Store. It is FREE (which of course means it's iAd-supported), so if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, please give it a spin, and if you're so inclined, leave an honest review.

iPad users are better off sticking with the full website; it's a fairly straightforward app — a nice, clean, stripped-down interface to read Multiplex on a tiny screen, as opposed to navigating the full website and all the extra bells & whistles, and we think it does what it's supposed to do rather well. 

Thanks are due to my brother Lawrence for coding the whole thing (not to mention my website), and to all the beta testing volunteers!

(Since I've already been asked, I'll add that yes, we are planning an Android version — but don't start holding your breath or anything yet. My brother is a busy busy guy.)

I'm running a T-shirt idea past the forumgoers, so if you'd like to check it out and let me know what you think, please do.

Lastly, the Multiplex Pre-Order/Sales Drive thingy is still going on! We're still just shy of half-way to the goal, but I think we can still make it. Pre-order a book now and get FREE STUFF. Who doesn't like free stuff? Even if you've already pre-ordered (or want to wait 'til you can flip through one with your own, greasy mitts), please consider buying a print or T-shirt to help support Multiplex.

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:
