Cool Stuff, by Annie
The assorted poetry
was submitted ... a while ago. Hey! I was busy! I also added a few older ones
to round out the collection. Enjoy. If
you just joined the JSIA, rush over to http://www.jonstewart.net/news.html
for all the stuff
you missed these last three days not being on the JSIA. It's so totally not
worth not being on the JSIA, is it not?
*** Site updates, in
no particular order ***
() Four new Jon Encounters
have been added to the site. Melly's (yes, Melly AGAIN) encounter covers her
trip to Jon's D.C. show with Rianna and Krissy, two other JSIA members. Amanda's
encounter covers the recent Philly show. A different Amanda's older encounter
covers a show Jon did in Atlantic City three years ago. And Shelly's encounter
covers the Tribeca event Jon moderated.
Please send your own encounter stories to firstname.lastname@example.org or she will totally
kick your ass. I'm serious. Don't mess with Melly.
() Sara J. has accepted
a position as Senator
of the On-Stage Stewartlust.
Her story, You Win, is housed at the JSEB at:
Speaking of which, the Fun Fiction section of the JSEB has been opened. Older
stories have already been housed there, if you'd like to reminisce:
() Cassandra has accepted
a position as Senator
of The Way Jon Periodically Shuffles His Papers and Then Looks Into the Camera.
Her poem is included in this newsletter (see below).
() There are some updates
to the filmography, thanks to Dani's research:
Speaking of Dani, if you've not had a chance to check out her comprehensive
bio on Jon, you should do that ASAP (Shalini notes that the only thing missing
is dental records):
() Fourteen new articles
and transcripts have been archived:
() A new Agent Roster at
a glance section has been added to the About Us page:
() Crappy, rough versions
of both the Jon Handbook and the Jon Timeline have opened, but frankly, I would
suggest you wait a bit before visiting:
() The JSEB Arena has changed
its name to the JSIA Arena. The Arena had closed for a short time, but Chaney
used her powers of persuasion and I reopened it. For you newer members, the
Arena is a discussion list on which you can talk about anything Jon or JSIA
related. All e-mails sent to the list are sent to all people on the list. It
is NOT the same thing as THIS list. THIS list can be posted to only by a few
moderators such as myself. If you'd like to join the Arena, send a blank e-mail
The list is a good idea way to discuss Jon if you don't like web-based forums.
Speaking of web-based forums ....
you're not on the JSIA Bulletin Board, you're
missing a lot. The latest Batman influenced roundrobin fiction is in full swing,
the Six Degrees of Jon Stewart game is crying out for your brilliance, and your
missing your chance to share your utterly irrelevant thoughts about the great
Jon Stewart. What are you waiting for anyway? Chicken? Never been on a board
before? There's a testing area for you virginal types. And as always, I will
answer any questions, as long as they're written in English. Portuguese questions,
for instance, will likely be deleted. French questions ... maaaaaybe.

A Moment In the Life of
a Jon Stewart Fan
Searching, searching, searching
Every website, reading every article,
Saving every picture.
Watching Big Daddy, only bothering
To look up when Jon is on screen.
Stopping everything at 11:00 pm
Eyes focused on the TV
This half an hour is finally here.
The soulful eyes, gleaming mischievously,
The looks, the faces he makes,
You know the ones,
Before I know it, it's over
But the promise of tomorrow
And more Jon Stewart
Puts a smile on my face.
Cassandra, Senator of The
Way Jon Periodically Shuffles His Papers and Then Looks Into the Camera
There once was a Stewart
Whose fan base was particularly strong,
But though he might flirt,
with all things in a skirt,
He never cheat, cause tha'd be wrong!

The Daily Show,
I must confess,
is the bestest of the best.
With Vance, Mo, and Beth,
The Steph(v)ens and Jon,
and all the rest,
I surely will,
throw my tele,
off a hill.
of Odds and Ends
The desk divides us.
He is on one side of it.
I am far away.
O hair with gray streaks.
Poofy and delicious too.
Please can I touch it?

One has streaks of gray,
Of my two Daily favorites -
The other, glasses.
Stories in his eyes
Kept hidden from all the world,
Seen but never told.
