    Haven't I told you I live in the middle of nowhere?
    I do.
    The interwebs exist primarily in dialup format here.

    He should organise with Nokia to have Whitechapel-branded versions of these gadgets given out to his faithful henchmen here -- at least the ones willing to horribly mutilate the genitals of his enemies.


    Plus it would be a great way to get more henchpeople--if I could get one of those gadgets he always talks about that I salavate over when reading Bad Signal, I'd totally slice his enemies' nuts into fucking hamburger.

    Warren Ellis does not jump sharks. He punches them. And then he writes comics about the experience.

    I dunno, I've read a pretty fair cross-section of Ellis' work, and nothing yet has seemed contrived or old to me. Knowing what to expect when you read a particular author isn't the same as them having jumped the shark.

    I think it's less shark jump, more shark humping going on here.

    I mean, where's my fucking fancy-eel-arse phone from the future I watch nettv and stuff on? Huh? Huh?

    I'd hump a shark for that. With someone elses, though.

    @bflora:

    Your Warren Ellis shark-jump attempt = COLOSSAL FAIL!

    Some of your absences - Red Bull, Whiskey, Nurses.

    @ bflora: Amusing little thought. It made me laugh.

    I think the ultimate Bad Signal would be twice as long and half the planet's population would explode as a result.

    I'd actually never seen the phrase 'jumping the shark' before today, and this thread.

    I don't read many technology reviews, but I'll read WE bitch about technology for a long time before it gets old.

    Of course, I don't get this thread - the originator seems to have loved the last Signal...
