The JSEB's Jon Stewart Super Site Selection by Krissy
It all started when Rebecca, creator
and president of the JSEB, pulled off her her gloves and smacked me in the face
with them. I could not, nay, would not, refuse the challenge. We unsheathed
our swords and battled in the glorious navy blue of the August dusk. After an
hour-long clash, I plunged my sword into her beating heart with a fierce animal
cry. I lifted my blood-drenched blade to the starry sky and screamed a primal
victory cry. I, at last, had defeated the great Miss Rebecca to ascend to the
presidency of the great Jon Stewart Estrogen Brigade!!!
Or . . . Rebecca e-mailed me and asked
me to take over. Either way, it makes a great story.
Many of you already know me as the
webmaster of the Jon Stewart Supremacist Site (SSS). Others know me as the last
officer to join the JSEB as Annie-Wan Kenobe (see last newsletter here).
Everyone is still here. Manda, the magnificent webmaster of the JSEB site, is
still the magnificent webmaster of the JSEB site (still in construction -- but
coming back soon!). Except for Rebecca, who will ascended to the great JSEB
cloud in the sky, descending to only occassionally grace us with her angelic
presence, the officers have been moved out of the boardroom and into the JSEB
Cabinet. Allison, our newsletter mainstay, will still be handling most of the
main newsletter duties. She is now Secretary of Brainwashing. Krissy is now
Secretary of Odds and Ends. She will do everything I order, er, uh, ask her
As Allison says, this is chapter three
of the JSEB. I sincerely hope that with your help, we continue to grow and make
this the best chapter yet.
Annie, JSEB President
To the Anguished Masses
Dear JSEB Members,
Long time no chat, is it not? I'm
sorry to report that the JSEB has gone through some difficult times the past
few months, but we have not purposely neglected you in the least -- it was quite
an unfortunate occurrence. It's all come to a head now. The old JSEB server
shut down, and our President, Miss Becca, resigned. I'm still here (that's right
. . . try to suppress your excitement . . . or is that disappointment I detect?).
Nonetheless, Annie has graciously promised to keep the JSEB memories alive,
and we will soon have a new home for the site. Cheers to that!
This is to be the third chapter in
the JSEB's history. The first was when it began with a few members. The second
was when I took over the newsletter in May of 1999 as the 17th member and we
began doing some more advertising. I am proud to say that at this point (at
the close of the second chapter . . . oh how I love those analogies!), we have
over 300 members. Tremendous! And this right now (for those of you keeping up
-- the "Third Chapter") is our new time to grow and prosper once again!
On a personal note about the Newsletter,
many of you devoted members sent me articles, pictures, and sounds for what
would have been out best Newsletter yet, I am sure. However, my computer crashed
while I was putting it together, and it was all lost (though that Newsletter
was probably not going to be sent out at that time anyway). At any rate, to
those of you who sent me things (that apparently only I have been able to enjoy
at this point), thank you, thank you, kudos, and my sincerest apologies on behalf
of myself and my computer (blasted gray box that it is). And if you would be
so gracious, if you could resend those thoughts and files, perhaps they can
be incorporated in later editions. We'll just have to see what flies and roll
Fans of Jon Stewart are a special
breed of people who are truly tops! Feel free to contact me any time. I wish
you all the best -- stay mad for it!
Allison, Secretary of Brainwashing
If Only the Real Election Were This
With the presidential election in
full swing, who can turn on the television without seeing a campaign commercial?
Well, if you're watching Comedy Central (if you're reading this, you damn well
better be watching Comedy Central), you've seen a whole new twist to the election
ads. That's right -- vote Stewart.
No, Jon's not running for president,
we'll leave that job to candidate Doty. He's running for Anchor. That's right,
anchor. Who is he running against? I don't know. When is the election? Beats
me. Why do I care? Because it's funny as hell.
Not only are there campaign commercials,
but there's a web site. That's right, a web site. Just go to JonStewart2000.com
to catch all the humor the real election is lacking. With a whole bunch of RealPlayer
videos, you can find out about Jon's fake family and find out the answer to
the question "Why does he lie?"
Now, hopefully, you have a better
computer than I do and will be able to actually watch these videos. I apologize
for not being able to tell you how hilarious they really are, but my computer
is possessed by the gods of "pissing-Kristin-off-olicism." The only thing it
lets me watch is the clip of "little George W." Either way, I know they have
to be hilarious; I would never expect less from The Daily Show crew.
Krissy, Secretary of Odds & Ends
The JSEB's Jon Stewart Super Site
A little praise to our fellow Jon
fans, well, one in particular. This time around we honor Nikki, owner and almighty
ruler of The Jon Stewart Archives (at www.jonstewart.net). And what does Nikki's
site have that others don't? Humor that would make our Daily Show folks proud.
Just click on the biography link and you'll be sure to get a good laugh . .
. but don't go there if you want real facts. I had no idea Jon was a sex slave
for King Arthur, nor did I know that he was kidnapped by Donald Trump. Who knew?
Aside from the humor, Nikki's site
is chock full of good Jon Stewart odds and ends. From a neatly catalogued photo
gallery to articles and MP3s, Nikki's site has everything a Jon fan could want.
What, do you ask, is there to do after reading all the articles, viewing all
the pictures, and listening to all the MP3s? A message board of course! Post
amongst those you feel most comfortable around -- your fellow Daily Show junkees.
There you have it, my pick for this
issue's featured site -- The Jon Stewart Archives.
Krissy, Secretary of Odds & Ends
