From last night:

I could add so much to that, but I would only make it more detailed and less eloquent.

JMS biography: sneak peak

Jms facebook (and twitter) post at Christmas day (12-24) is obviously a sneak peak from the self-biography.

Quote:
So: Christmas 1965. I was eleven and we were living in the Projects in Newark, New Jersey. We were pretty much flat busted broke (hence the Projects, hence Newark). Couldn't afford a full size tree and most of the presents were second-hand or from the dollar store. Fairly bleak ...

No one would have tried a stunt like that in my mother's house, I was pretty lucky. Violence and disrespect for a fallen president would have gotten you a quick escort into a very cold winter night.

Family can be pretty horrible, but that really takes the "prize".

This happened last night. Some folks were talking about JMS hanging out online back in the day and one of them 'summoned' him.

As I recall, wasn't part of this quote a title in the Book of Lost Souls? Possibly the one about the artist?

About a showrunner for the Amazon Prime planned LotR tv series

Link about the LotR series:
https://tvweb.com/lord-of-the-rings-tv-series-amazon/

Yesterday someone did post the wish, JMS should be the showrunner of the planned LotR-prequel TV series.

JMS answered:
Quote:
Quite honestly, for me, as someone who has seen all the movies at least ten times each, rereads the entire trilogy every two years, and once submitted a college term paper written in Elvish, that would be the job of a lifetime.
To dream about...

Minbari Federation

JMS 01-08 tweet:
Quote:
Got everything correct, and almost certainly better than I could have done in the same amount of time. (The only thing omitted that I could determine: average hat size for the Minbari is a 16, given their bone structure.)
It's about the summing up video to Minbari Federation.

Youtube short link:

Youtube normal link:

It's worth viewing!

flamethrower

JMS 02-03 tweet:
Quote:
@elonmusk In 2003 after finishing shooting Jeremiah in Canada I wanted to bring home a prop nuclear tipped shell. Very realistic. But how to get it through customs? Sent it fedex, the box labeled "Fake Nuclear Weapon." They never even opened it. So "not a flamethrower" might work
Refers to Elon Musk selling over his Boring Company 20,000 flamethrowers.
https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/...hwart-customs/

Not so funny.
What the hell anybody needs a flamethrower for?
To get even more California wildfires?

Lots of people write poetry around Valentine's Day, right?

That's a really old one! Probably his second published comic from back in 1991. His first was a Teen Titans Cyborg issue. I liked it a lot.

Ah yes. Long time ago...
Did he ever create something in the ST universe beside this comic?
(Well. Except his ST revival concept paper)

Not that I'm aware of beside the item with Bryce Zabel which I'm pretty sure is what you're referring to.
