Default November 12

Ladies, gentlemen, and zombies... I am back. This site has been dormant for too long. I'll have more on that later in one of my usual needlessly talky articles, but first I'm going to blow your minds.

In November 2002, I started a little something called Fiver By Committee. It's been running intermittently since then; it attracted lots of interest, but for one reason or another, it tended to go dead for months at a time. All the "blocks" have been basically done for about a year now, and we've even chosen our next target. (I even made a reference to one of the completed scenes in The Disbanding 2.) But I dropped the ball again and never actually finished the job.

No longer. It's here. Behold Five-Minute The Matrix -- by you, with all-new starting and ending scenes by yours truly.

It was inevitable, Mr. Anderson.

(Note: Not all the little stuff may be uploaded tonight. My FTP program is being a complete grenchler.)

Wow, Fiver by Committee? I remember reading all this way back when it all started, which feels like three or four lifetimes. I lose track. Oh well - it was funny then, and it's still funny now.

Sorry. I don't believe you. And I refuse to click the fiver link, because I just know, deep down, that it is a Rick Roll.

Welcome back, Zeke.

Absolutely INSANE update coming tomorrow morning. It's brand new content and it's Heroes-based. Be here. (By the way, the reason I've been making these "tomorrow" posts is that I have no net access at night right now.)

*Shakes wristwatch. Holds it to ear.* Um, yeah. It ain't morning anywhere in North America anymore, so it appears Zeke bit off more than he can chew again.

While we're waiting, anyone up for some magic tricks? Pick a card, any card...

No I didn't shut up. Funny you should mention wristwatches, though...

Yes. Yes, it is. (That was the title of this week's episode, for those who don't know.)
