Food for Thought poll
.
Accusations have been made of indecency fouling the waters of the CBS Jericho Message Board. In the interest of introspection I have authored a poll with a few questions to see just how many of us are truly wrestling with this issue. The poll is HERE. -02/03/08

CBS Jericho Site Gets Major Facelift
.
Jericho season 2 is coming fast and CBS is cleaning house for the party! The controversial Meebo chatroom has been removed and the main Jericho page has been completely reworked. The new Jericho homepage is a less dramatic interface which frankly, is much cleaner and seems to hold a heck of a lot more content. Videos feature prominently with an extensive season 2 preview section. 13 of the 22 first season episodes are linked to in well laid out and inviting thumbnail images. There is a featured fans section which sports the avatar of the fans they spotlight and a link to a thread where the fan can be found. 8 recommended forum threads grace the box below that. And at the very bottom of the page is a Town of Jericho gallery which contains various slideshows of the town, its residents and the first season episodes. (If you are reading this Web Team the button for the residents slideshow presently takes one to the town slideshow)

This is such an encouraging development for Jericho. To think that the network has decided to re-commit and allocate money for their Jericho site only says to me they are expecting a substantial influx of new fans. Early reviews for the first three episodes are extremely positive and the excitement surrounding the show throughout the web is palpable. -01/31/07

JLA Exposé
.
Fan fiction meets fantasy; that’s part of what I found as I turned or rather clicked through the web pages of the Jake Lusters Anonymous thread on the CBS message board. I also found something else which I will expose soon enough. First let’s eavesdrop a bit.

Nita 28 writes:

“Later that evening I joined jake over at Baileys. He had taken a bit of a nap out on the Patio. So he was well recharged when I joined him, Mary closed early but Jake and I, on his lap of course, were still on the Patio. Mary made my special drinks before she left. And that's where we stayed all night.”

Pretty tame so far but then:

“we did indulge in heavy lovemaking. Cause what I had told him seemed to arouse him greatly and he wanted to take good advantage of our time.”

Well, I think we have just about reached the erotic heights of a light romance novel, the kind that any eight year old could buy from a drug store. (I read “Forever” when I was ten) Now, I am not saying that some folks might not find this offensive but what does anyone expect on a thread called Jake Luster’s Anonymous?

Another criticism I have heard of the JLA is their adoption of Chocofishie’s reworking of the Serenity prayer for the clubs, that’s right I said clubs, purposes. In the interest of full disclosure I should first say that I served with Chocofishie back in Camp Passion which in and of itself sounds dirty. That’s part of the fun of language. Double entendre and repurposing old texts to suit your needs is just a fact of American life. From Groucho Marx to Madonna we have been buying and selling sex since the countrie’s inception. Blues Music’s roots run raunchy and for that matter so do Bug’s Bunnies. “Size matters not!” say’s Yoda but try telling that to the kid who cannot get on the Tilt-A-Whirl because of his size. (You thought I was going to say something dirty didn’t you?)

Alcoholics Anonymous repurposed the Serenity Prayer long before the JLA and sexy stars reside in Jericho for a reason. The ogle factor is part of it. I promised earlier I would tell you what else I found on the JLA thread. I found a Sisterhood. Perhaps not a Ya Ya but definitely a Ga Ga Sisterhood. These gals are Ga Ga over Jake and whether some folks like it or not their Jake Lust went a long way toward saving Jericho.
.
Not to mention their intelligence, perseverance and power.

Thank you ladies of the JLA. -01/30/08

RIDIN' THE RODS - It has just occurred to me that I see no link to the Salty Scoop anywhere on the new Jericho Homepage. I hope that this will be added as the work progresses. Losing the Scoop would not only be sad but might just spark another deluge of nuts! Let's keep an eye out for it!!!

RIDIN' THE RODS - Also in the bottom right hand corner of the new homepage there is a Fan Video of the day! This is something that Jericho fans have been calling for for quite some time. Good move CBS!

Our behind the scenes of the JLA activity is private messages to one another when there are things too personal or painful to reveal on an open forum. We believe in lifting up not tearing down...YOU JUST LIFTED ME UP!!!

Very well said Terocious and since you're from Philly, you know how our favorite radio station acts on the air during the daytime.
The CBS/Jericho site is there to have fun. Period.
Thank You for reminding those who have forgotten!

Hey,T, General says you're from Philly! Me too. Hello Homey.
Just wanted to say Kudos to you. The ladies of the JLA are a wonderful supportive group of great woman. Too bad everyone can't have a sense of humor or at least recognize one when the see it and be tolerant of what they disagree with.

Thanks for stepping up.
