    So a couple of nights ago Joe tweeted that he'd been looking for a Tshirt for ages and finally had one made.

    Cute. But then! Last night he mentioned that the next day he found no less than five sellers selling that exact shirt. I did a quick search, didn't find anything and decided he was just playing. Until this morning and my standing Google search searved me no less than SIX tshirt sellers selling the Official J. Michael Straczynski shirt! One of them seems to thave gone up so fast that the 'description' is still placeholder text:

    ABOUT
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt.

    I've always heard that if you post 'that needs to be on a t-shirt', that it would be shortly. Now we know that it's true!‚Äč

    Two fun tweets from JMS last night and just now. After many, many, MANY discussions over the years, JMS seems to have posted a rank listing for Earthforce.

    NOT trying to re-open the discussion again - mostly just putting this here so I can find it again. For some time now, folks have quoted one of the actors saying that WB sued over DS9 and that there was an out-of court settlement. This lays that to rest:

KING KONG (1933) is dated so does that mean we need it to be redone with the effects from KING KONG (2005)?! It makes no sense. The effects are such a wonderful part of the show. Why mess with it?! While their at it why don't they take the animated action from WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? (1988) and replace it all with more up to date realistic looking modern animation? Ridiculous. If Babylon 5 needs to look different with different effects then that is what we'll get with a reboot.

    Could see possibly cleaning/upscaling, but if there is excess Time and Money to go around, better to devote those resources towards a New B5. The updated graphics for Trek TOS are certainly pretty, but that could just as easily be random stock footage (BSG/Space Mutiny) since the space effects for Trek weren't as linked to the show as they were with B5. And if the effects were replaced, would it be the same show? Part of why B5 is B5 is how they were able to accomplish what they did with what they had at the time.

    Could be? Alternatively, it could be any number of projects other than B5. I was just recalling recently that he'd been announced to write a pilot based on "One Second After" that I haven't heard of in a while. Or another comic. Or another feature? The man does keep busy!

    This year Studio JMS will make the B5 feature film??

    Mildly snarky joking aside, am genuinely intrigued what's in the pipeline for B5. At least one of those things is done and dusted, if I am reading the past announcement correctly.
