While trying to get through the long, seeming eternal hours with no adventures to
ponder……I discovered Melanie’s B5 Homage Pages. There is a synopsis of Jerry
Doyle’s appearance at Vulkon in Sept. She also keeps character descriptions of the main
characters, adding new character attributes as the character evovles. By reading her
decription of our G-mon I think that she is a G-monite but dosen’t know it yet. You can
acess the page by selecting Stellarcom WWW Links from the main page, then selecting
wwwB5 Links, She is near the top of the list.

The chocolate shortage has indeed begun. The grocery was out of chocolate chips this am!

Subj: Marketing Exec Tell-Tales
Date: 1/18/97 8:24:01 PM
From: WaywardFlf
Posted on: America Online
Tell-tale signs that the Marketing Executives have been through the Station:
10. There are now pay toilets in the Zocalo.

9. Calls on BabCom are constantly interrupted by “Another two credits, please, for the next
four standard minutes.”

8. Security staff have to pay a license fee for the little “whiiiiiiizzzzzzz” sound that happens
when they pull their PPGs.

7. Corwin has to pull duty as the Babylon 5 ‘meter maid’ for all the ships in parking orbit
outside the Station.

6. Two shopping channels, a music-video channel, and a sports channel are piggy-backed
on the signal from Draal’s holographic projection system.

5. There is a new annual fee for Starfury inspection and emissions testing.

4. Patients in MedLab are asked if they’d like to purchase memorial rubber gloves left over
from Dr. Franklin’s examinations.

3. “You May Have A Career In Marketing!” posters are suddenly spotted in the seediest
corners of DownBelow.

2. The music recording “The Biggest Hits of Babylon 4″ is offered for sale and played
constantly in the transport tubes.

1. There is an entertainment tax on rolls of Saran Wrap.

To all my fellow G-Monites…You are not hearing any yapping sounds from the
ductwork. Really! None of my wild and vicious rat dogs are in the ductwork snooping for
a shortcut to the G-Mon’s quarters. I don’t know how they got there!<BG> I don’t know
who started the rumor that I put them up to it. Honest…I would never do anything so
underhanded and sneakey…and besides, I was paid a lot of money! 😉 So, if you think
you hear any yapping sounds…it could be a figment of you imagination. { Defecting to
the ductwork croud… }

O.K., tried to “Force-Post” this in the full “Garibaldi #3.” But, noooo, just couldn’t do it,
until I find this folder, so here it is:

Have been lurking around the station {reading these fine postings} for the last month, and
have noticed the vast line of women {all these fabulous “Ladies of the Line” lead by the
esteemed TheLadyT} waiting for the chief {lucky guy}, even to the point of some, once,
hovering out in the vacuum of space…though I am alittle steamed over loosing my sleeping
area on Grey 17, but I digress…

I now find myself wondering up and down the line enjoying the crowd of great
personalities {ya’all know who you are}, and stopping once in a while to talk with one or
another {posting here}. Hoping all the time that they don’t notice the lasagna stains on my
clothes from my feble attempts at reproducing ones masterpiece {yes, I cook, but only for
myself, couldn’t risk contaminating the innocent}…{also, hoping they don’t smell the
stash of imported German Milk Chocolate I have a tedency to keep}

So, If the ladies don’t mind, I’ll be stopping by and giving my two credits worth on the G-
mon.

{Have checked out all the COJ I could fit into 6 hours, my eyes hurt…owwy, owwy}
{wait, did someone mention a “Raspy Voice?” …now is drooliing profusely into once
icon of the Great Vorlon God Boogie…}
{hope they don’t find out about being an ex-EarthCorp tactical “big bore” weapons tech,
before the break away…they may try and solicit my assistance in clearing out the
ducts…nah, couldn’t find that out…heh}
{top 10’s are cool}

we’ve noticed a new face around here, not to mention the faint odor of chocolate when you
walk by. as far as losing your bunk space, after the Ladies get settled in and we see if
there is any space left available, we might be able to set you up in the newly remodeled

Since the chocolate cravings are serious, and we are trading recipes, and it is the new year
and we all resolved to eat well….if you can find some chocolate chips, try this one. It’s
easy. If you can turn on the stove (or microwave) you can handle it.

Melt together a six-ounce bag of chocolate chips and the large (1/2 lb, I think) Hershey
milk chocolate bar. (no, not the one with almonds!) If you actually own a fondue pot, it is
the appropriate vessel, but any pot will do (plastic or glass for the microwave) (NO boogie
buckets!) At our house we do it on the stove top, so that we can stir, stare with anticipation
and eat the other half of the 12-ounce bag of chocolate chips. Thin it if needed with a little
milk and add a splash of your favorite liquer – we like Gran Marnier or Chocolate Cherry.
When it’s smooth and gorgeous and cool enough that it won’t burn your mouth, dip in
chunks of your favorite fruit. We recommend banana, peaches, and fresh pineapple. Now
you can tell yourself that you’re eating more fruit. If fruit is not available, chunks of
poundcake will work, or oreos, or in a pinch, spoons. Enjoy!

(or, “Why the Top Ten Listmonger Will Tiptoe Past Troy and Post Under Sister’s
Screen Name Because if We Give Up the Connection, AOL Will Never Let Us Back In”)

10. I could be running a day care center Down Below, hence inciting parents to mutiny,
except the Straczynski-Mon does not like kiddie-focused plots.
9. I could be jamming Stellarcom with Pirate Rap Radio broadcast from Epsilon, but
would then have to defend same against most unhip Minbari warrior caste.
8. The ceiling accommodates only so many Top Ten lists, and the bathroom walls remain
to be spray-painted.
7. Creativity is a germ and is most virulently contagious. Mongoose could take naughty
self to “Baywatch” folders and jam like nobody’s business, but that would not stop the G-
Monite epidemic.
6. JMS is much more likely to leave AOL because of “Road Runner” lingo (dig it, “Beep-
beep, beep-beep, beep-beep”).
5. On remote chance the Straczynski-Mon construes a Mongoose post as suggestive of
plot, he need fear no evil, for Mongoose gives judges, courthouses, law enforcement
agencies and the U.S. Post Office very, very wide berth.
4. In the hypothetical case JMS discovers the “Captain Simian” board, and Garibaldi
subsequently goes bananas, will the G-Monkeys (“Captain Simian” cross-over fans) be v-
chipped to “Bananas in Pajamas” folder?
3. Having stared death in the face (Cabbage Pac’m’ara doll), Mongoose will willingly take
a stand in Grey Sector with an army of Warrior Caste MinBarbies.
2. Like, everyone has a place in the Universe, but the Universe is a very, very big place.
So many lists, so many spray-paint fumes….
1. Line, MonkeeMan and Ductwork Crowd notwithstanding, when it comes to fathoming
the Pheromones du G-Mon: JMS is most clueless.

I have been ‘lurking’ around the ‘Garibaldi’ folders since July ’96. I was fortunate

have thoroughly enjoyed the comraderie, the humor, and the wonderfully talented
contributions of the members/participants of the Garibaldi folders. I feel like I almost
know each and every one of you. I regularly look forward to being able to log on and visit
my ‘friends’ once or twice a week. You have helped make my past half-year online a
delightful experience and I look forward to many more wonderful top ten list, and a

Just saw another note in another file about problems with possible
story lines creating problems. Didn’t look at the date (should have)
but seriously, it is very hard to discuss an episode (this appeared
in the episode discussion section) and not speculate…because we
are in a sense acting like detectives…the clues are there in the threads
that have been left for us to follow. We follow them and try to take
them to logical conclusions. The problem seems to be that when we
take that step from what we see to what we think we see that we are
crossing the line…(sorry, no pun intended).

Can some one tell us how we can continue, either our wonderful little
world in this folder which could never be an episode simply because it
would never get past the censors (here or in England) or even to really
discuss an episode in depth?

I think we all understand the why of the problem just not the how to
avoid the problem.

Ah, another true seeker!

We came to know of The Great Vorlon God Boogie through Marcus Cole, who offered “I
can put a bucket on my head and pretend to be The Ancient Vorlon God Boogie” when
Ivanova wanted to stop the First Ones called “The Walkers” from leaving before agreeing
to help in the fight against the Shadows.

Now, normally one would accept a religious revelation of such magnitude only from a
robed virgin, but….well, come to think of it, I guess we can accept this revelation from
Marcus.

Boogie Provides, but that does not extend to Bucket substitutes. Still, if your spirit is pure,
then the ‘externals’ are unimportant.

(Personally, though, I think ‘Rubbermaid’ might be pushing it.)

I think he migh be a cat-mon, but of the predominately male type who pretends they aren’t.

There are six paperbacks out….most deal very heavily with Garibaldi and there is a lot of
Ivanova also. There are part of the story as are the 11 comics that are out there. I found
the books at Borders. Took me one convention, one assist from a friend and three months
of scouring comic books stores to get all 11…..I do have some doubles if anyone is
interested.
As with anything else, what I paid for them plus postage is all I ask. Can pick up paper
backs
if anyone is interested…most times they have three or four of the six in. Sometimes all six.
I go
to the bookstore about every three weeks since they are about 25 miles from my house.
Will be
headed that way next week for lunch with a friend. E-Mail me if you are interested.

JMS is quoted in the Zocalo newsletter this week that they took the comic “in-house” and
there are three to come out some time in the near future. They will be distributed by DC
Comics.
He is writing the first one. Peter David (I think) is doing the next two of the first set.

have a look that can melt your heart. both can be nasty when backed in a corner. and I bet
both would purrrrrr when held(BIG GRIN).

although……if he could be dog-mon, both are loyal. both come when they are called.
both follow commands. both can be protective.

Dog-mon, cat-mon, Mongoose is reminded of a lyric from George Clinton’s R&B
classic, “Atomic Dog”: “Why must I be like that? Why must I chase the cat? It’s just the
dog in me.” Except, no lie, in this case, just who is chasing whom?
Also am reminded of Cleveland Amory’s novel, “The Cat Who Came for Christmas.”
In one chapter, he describes how most men prefer dogs because of their servile nature:
Dogs will fetch, come when you call them, learn tricks to amuse you. Women, so the
astute Mr. Amory notes, prefer cats because they admire feline independence: Call a cat,
and s/he will come to you only if is to the cat’s advantage, and only after a reasonable lapse
of time just to let you know who is in charge. But the Mr. Amory, avowed dog-mon,
enjoyed many years of friendship with his adopted cat.
Now, that sounds like Garibaldi-Mon.

I’ve spent the past few days mulling this latest pothole on the info superhighway, and I
really
don’t see the problem. My understanding is that there are 2 kinds of posts that are
verboten:
speculation and violation of copyright. We’re really not speculating – I mean, we can’t
even get
JMS to give the guy a date! Does anyone *really* expect that an upcoming episode will
have the
G-mon necking with a sword-toting lady when a spraypaint-stained mongoose falls out of
the
ductwork? Sorry, Lady T, but realistically, I think not.

As for copyright – most of the Line stories deal with *us*, not any B5 characters or places
(ductwork, space, airlocks, corridors, Zocalo and chocolate are *not* B5 inventions). Any
B5
characters & places are mentioned briefly, usually in the background. Finally, copyrights
are in
place primarily to protect revenue – well, none of us are making, or intend to make, any
money
off of these stories. So honestly, what is the problem here?

Why don’t we try continuing the Tales of the Line, but try to keep the B5 characters out of
it as
much as possible (I guess Sheridan won’t be able to help shorten the line after all 😉 ),
except, of
course, for our beloved G-mon (hey-he isn’t called that on the show-is that OK?). Either
that, or
else everyone will have to resort to parody like my previous post, and this will soon look
like the
MAD Magazine board.

The previous mention of MAD Magazine in no way implies an endorsement by or editorial

The problem of story ideas is not new, and has been around since the beginning of JMS on
the nets.

Everyone who has been on the nets, agrees that Joe’s presence – on his own time – is one
of the things that helps propel the show and help viewer interaction. The possibility of that
forum being discontinued because of story ideas is a pretty scary thing.

We’ve been saying this from day 1 some 5-6 years ago. There can’t be anything that
resembles a story idea. Theres an even finer line on fan fiction at all that Im not even
going to try and figure out.

The Garibaldi folder is the only folder on AOL I have ever seen that even comes close to
the story ideas, and if allowed to continue, could set dangerous precedents regarding fan
fiction here on the boards.

I’ll leave it up to JMS to decide on this one. Personally, I think the stories are too … um..
outrageous maybe.. ;> to be cponsidered story ideas, but best to wait to hear from The
Great Maker.

definate “dog-mon” vote, one “cat-mon and dog-mon” vote, one “probable cat-mon” vote,
and she’s pretty sure one definate “cat-mon” vote. She sighs, it’s so hard to know what
this portends…
She sniffs the air, catching a whiff of something familiar, something tasty, but it’s soon
gone, and she can’t recapture the scent…ah, well, back to her analysis…
And the Boogie Buckets…she shakes her head, feeling foolish. To think she saw that
episode and the Great Moment of Revelation completely escaped her notice. Well, there are
none so blind as those who will not see, eh? Does this mean that Boogie Buckets are worn
on the head? Westie sincerely hopes so, because she sure won’t be able to fit her big * in
any bucket, unless it’s one of those buckets used by old timey electrical repair workers…
The tasty smell returns, this time ever so faint, but persistent. Westie makes a mental note
to research the neckwear of ancient Egyptian ducks, tucks her legal pad under her arm, and
sets off to locate the source of that tantalizing aroma…what is it??
She wanders the halls for several minutes, sniffing and pondering, and then, pondering
and sniffing. As it grows stronger, her mouth starts to water, it’s not chocolate, but it’s so
familiar.
Finally, she comes to a door, the aroma is overpowering and she realizes: IT’S
POPCORN! Oh, my Boogie, genuine hot buttered popcorn!
“Door open!” she whoops. And as the door slides open, and a giant wall of popcorn
begins to fall towards her…Westie knows what she must do…
Bodysurfing a kahuna-sized wave of popcorn, Westie speeds through the halls,
chomping down handsful and yelling, “Ladies, help! If ya wanna live, ya gotta eat!!!
Help!! Somebody go to the video store and get movies, lots of movies! And lots of Diet

LaGrange Point around a planet with a name is a letter in the Greek alphabet. Dr.
Franklinstein(that’s pronounced Franklinsteen) has called a meeting of his staff. He is
standing in front of his desk. ” I have found evidence that there are many of my staff that
may have an addiction problem. It’s not stims, but it is still interfering with the work.” He
steps around behind his desk. The desk is piled high with chocolate candy wrappers. “At
first, I thought it was a minor problem, a wrapper here and there. But then they started
appearing in surgery, decon, and even the air ducts!. This morning, however, when I was
inspecting the morgue, I found a stasis chamber with the patient’s name listed as Lady
Godiva. It was full of chocolate. This is not acceptable. Some of you have a serious
addiction problem. Holly, since you are on light duty after your little… mishap, will you
facilatate a Chocoholics Anonymous program” I nodded. He turned and left.

I began “Alright, I Know who you all are. Everyone else leave! OK, Ladies, the
Chocoholics Unanimous meeting will be tonite at 2100. I’ll bring the fudge! Tonite’s
topic will be ‘Disposing of Those Tell Tale Candy Wrappers Creatively’ It will be held on

And the “Captain Simian” folder (as if the “Space Monkeys” show doesn’t parody B5, Star
Trek, every B-movie ever concocted, etc.). And then go watch TV like good little,
mindless automatons, and let AOL know that we’re not supposed to mention characters on
television shows on the TV boards in the context of any literate discussion or parody,
because it might possibly constitute something of a storyline. “There is nothing new under

[The Lady begs on her knees for her friends not to hate her after this post.]

Okay, folks–go get your chocolate, this isn’t going to be pretty.

First, I’d like to say that this is one of the warmest, most creative, and funny groups I’ve
ever had the pleasure of knowing, and I hope we continue as friends and fellow posters for
a long time to come, however….

The upshot is, we’ve gotten out of hand.

No, JMS has not read the board. However, I’ve included his reply in the next post so you
can see what he said.

After careful review of our posts lately, *I’ve* concluded that’s what’s happened here.
Although I seriously doubt that ANYTHING we’ve written could be construed as story
ideas, speculation, etc.–the simple fact is that what’s been going lately on is “fan fiction”,
which is a no-no in JMS’s book and could be cause for his departure. We got away with it
for so long before simply because there was so little of it.

Recommendation? Well, we could kill everything–a no-no in *my* book; we could write
Copeland and ask him to review the stuff for JMS; or we could police ourselves. I
recommend policing ourselves, and told JMS that’s what we’d do, but if anyone wants to
write Copeland–go for it.

The major problem I see here is that we are who we are–an incredibly talented, fun-loving
group of B5 fans. There’s no crime in that, and therein lies our problem: how to write
creatively funny posts that don’t cause problems!

I don’t see the “anonymous” posts as a way out–it’s still “fan fiction” no matter how you
cut it. Our only hope here, as I see it, is scaling way back, scrutinizing our posts carefully
(okay, can I get away with THIS?), and in essence using our creative genius to “buck the
system”. Westie’s recent post is a marvelous example of this.

Although others might disagree, I still don’t see a problem with line food orders, top tens,
music, newsflashes, etc.–it’s the “stories” we need to look at a bit more carefully.

Have you had a chance to look at any of Garibaldi#3 to see if our silly “line tales” might be

I haven’t had a chance…but again, I try *not * to expose myself to story material that could
be problematic, so in a way you’re asking me to take that chance to see if it is a chance.
“Could you look in this box and tell me if this is something you’re not supposed to see?”

That’s kind of an awkward position to put me in.

All I can say for now is that any kind of fiction using our characters is to be avoided, and
anything that uses story ideas and the B5 universe can’t be where I am, or I’ll have to
leave. If this material falls under that description, it shouldn’t be done, it’s really that
simple.

be placed in that position. Alas, I fear that when the verdict is handed down, the Tales will
have to go. I think we were okay earlier, but these past few weeks we have gotten out of
hand–rather than less than half the posts being tale-related, suddenly nearly all were “tales”
of some sort.

I could blame you–you *are* the creative inspiration here (grin)–but instead I’ll take the
credit….oops, I mean blame….here. ;^) We’ll have to scale WAY back and pretty much
try to police ourselves at first, and basically remember that what we *were* doing (for a
short while) is considered “fan fiction” and is something that is a concern for you. I’ll talk
to everyone, and I’m sure they’ll be fine with it.

Okay…they’ll fuss, they’ll fume, they’ll throw a few fits, and the chocolate shortage will
get worse for a while, but we’ll live. :^)

Women, so the astute Mr. Amory notes, prefer cats because they admire feline
independence: Call a cat, and s/he will come to you only if is to the cat’s advantage, and
only after a reasonable lapse of time just to let you know who is in charge. But the Mr.

<<Perhaps we should all send JMS and co. a release…that way, we couldn’t

Have seen this suggested elsewhere……apparently there is no way to release
someone from something that may not actually exist. It is a serious Catch-22
and we are caught in the middle. Could we post line stories in the Simian folder
and visa versa?

But seriously…………………

It seems that what sparks creativity also can limit it. JMS gives us great characters
and a wonderful sandbox to play in and now we can’t play there because we *might*
play the game too well……..

Suggest that at least we let him know who we are….just get up at the conventions
where he is and tell him hello and that we are of “The Line.” He should worry a bit
about the wrath of the line at least verbally. First there will be no romance for “what’s
his name” and now we can’t talk about what we do while in the line or how we might
move it or at least move ourselves………at least we didn’t leave anyone outside….we
did get everyone in to the colorized section that was renovated for human habitation
didn’t we?

I see a road trip to Hershey,PA coming up……tour of chocolate factory may be necessary
to curb this depression…..worse than when rumors of “what’s his name” was supposedly
to be killed off. Luckily, I live fairly close……..

Open to suggestions….where do we go from here…….?

Troy, we know you are out there………HELP

Is there somewhere we can move the line that won’t cause problems but
still have message board type access on AOL?

Just thinking………………(very dangerous thing, might lead to an idea)

If TV GUIDE can do TV crossword puzzles, could we do fill it in’s?

Fill-In #1:

Fill in the blanks with the following words:

Delenn, door, G-mon, line, line, Shadow, she, Sheridan

Could this all be a ****** plot to get the **** away from our *****’s ****?
Or could ****** be so jealous that *** would do anything to prevent
******** from assisting in the moving of the ****?

We may find out just how creative we can be……..

Gee, if Troy is the one that watches whether or not we cross the “line,” does
that make him a “Linesman?”

The Great Popcorn Storm having subsided, Westie sits up and views the devastation.

“Aw, nuts, this is worse than I thought,” she mutters. “I sure hope that G-Monkee can
afford the clean-up crew for this escapade…”

Pulling stray bits of popcorn out of the folds of her clothing, she wanders over to her
fellow Ladies, who are looking particularly forlorn this morning…

“Hey, just because I called for Diet Pepsi doesn’t mean that other beverages are forbidden.
Y’all can have whatever you want..”

“It’s not the Diet Pepsi,” The Lady T answers, “it’s the latest missive from JMS.” She
points to the posting, and Westie reads, squinting, because her glasses are still in the
popcorn.

Westie’s eyes cross. “Hmmm, well, this is a fine how do you do. Story ideas??? One of
the first things I learned in Copyright class was that you can’t copyright an idea. And you

Date: 1/22/97 1:56:31 PM
From: AnnieWheel
Posted on: America Online

It was a dark day on the unnamed reservation rotating several days
removed from the third rotating object from the glowing ball known as Sol.
A linear group of patriots had just been told that they could no longer maintain
a written record of their trials and tribulations. They would be reduced to oral
history accounts. There would need to be a committee formed that would chose
who the one would be to keep the tales for those that were to come later. As
each generation came to be, the honor would be passed on to the one that was
most worthy. The numeric equivalent of what was believed to be the proper one
for making the decision was rejected as it might awaken again “The Great One That
Creates.” It was his last awakening that caused the grief that we now were suffering.
It was true what had been seen scribbled on the outside of the great reservation in the
sky….”what gives pleasure can also inflict pain.” “Kilroy was here” was also seen but
that is another tale. Last we heard, both had been covered over to erase any possibility
of contamination.

But before that could happen, their grief would need to be dealt with. The
kindly medicine man of the reservation came by to administer chocolate and popcorn
to those in most need. Some were so grief stricken that they would need attention
within his medical teepee.

There was much hugging and crying as they started to disband to go to separate
wigwams to await the future. But before they left, they each took a number so if ever
there was movement in the flap of the teepee outside which they had taken up residence,
there would be no cutting in ahead of those that had been the first ones that had waited.

There was the Lady Warrior who had told us of our new fate. She was visibly
upset that there would be no more written tales of our adventures….that there would be
no new adventures to share. There was the one who had challenged our brains and our
funny bones to top the top ten. There would be more of those but not within the plot of
a written adventure. Stand alone they would as they had always been able to do.

Those that hide above were now falling down. Their exodus was like a column
of soldiers marching off to prison. A restrictive prison that does not allow written tales
of their adventures above and beyond. There are rumors that they had learned cloud
writing but that has not been substantiated as of yet. More likely is the rumor that there
are tales written in the dust where they had been happy to reside awaiting linear movement
down below. Last we heard, the one also known as the “Great God of the Story” has
ordered that all places that might hide written tales be cleaned thoroughly, so that there
would be no contamination of the preordained destiny of those that are and those that are
to come in his universe.

No more tales of trips to the reflection wigwam to worship. And the “Great
Protector of What Is, Was and Will Be,” that had allowed us to have a tiny bit of
all that he surveys below the rotating reservation is not happy. Tremors shook the
reflection wigwam as he learned that a source of new visitors would reduce his voluntary
tribute of chocolate…..He even mentioned something about an entrance fee to be paid
in chocolate or popcorn.

Hey, Westie…….save some of that popcorn……we may need it.

And what was to become of the large teepee that had been renovated
so that those that came late would not be exposed to the elements? Would the
evil spirit that had once occupied the area return? How would we learn if it did?
How could we warn others if we could not post tales of it’s return? How could
we tell the tales of past encounters in time? Not everyone runs into the “Exalted
Holder of the Tales” before venturing forth into three sided areas of danger.

And what was to become of me and the others? There was not enough
chocolate and popcorn and lasagna in the universe to soothe all of us. And

were no longer of any concern? Maybe it was our time to pass beyond the edge

become poison to those who have big egos and no creative star of their own to shine.
Vague and non-specific accusations, threats of “you might,” are tyranny and harrassment,

I’m new to this folder, and CAN’T believe I’ve never looked in before!! What a great
group you have here!! I thought I was the biggest Garibaldi fan until I came here!!!! I
would love to know more about this “line” of yours and any group or club I can get
involved with.

I was very impressed with B5 Onlines credentials! I’ve taken this B5 area for granted and I
won’t ever do it again-I promise!! The reason I haven’t come here before is because I
don’t get the new B5 eps until Sat. night, and by that time it seems that everyone has talked
about the ep to death. AND-in the past I was spoiled when I came during the week because
I have to wait so long to see the new shows!!! (Even though I know they try their best not
to have that happen). Well, I’m here to stay!! Especially if someone can map out the
“rules” for me and let me know what all of the little sayings, etc., mean! I’d really
appreciate it!!!

I fell for Garibaldi from the get-go! He’s so loyal to his friends! He’s strong and caring at
the same time, too. Not to mention-he’s so darn cute!! <bg> I must say, though, I’ve
been worried about him since he returned to the station-I hope they didn’t do anything to
him!!!!

Please let me know what it takes to become a G-mon and even though I know I’d be in the

I belong to a club for a star of General Hospital. We are not allowed to use the official

at Keyword: TV Viewers then to TV People, then we post our messages in a folder under
her name in the Soap Opera Stars section. But we could use the folder Let’s Talk TV Stars
A-F, and put Jerry Doyle’s name there. Bruce Boxleitner already has a folder there!!

I know it would be a pain to go to two different areas, but it’s better than nothing at all.
And, you can put it into your favorite places, so that makes it a little easier to get to. I’m
going to try and make a folder there now, so let me know if you are interested.

message about getting a board for Jerry Doyle and send away!!

I hope this is a solution to all these problems, and B5Online, for what it’s worth, I don’t

Just as clarification and to hopefully make you guys see Im not the “bad guy” here… this
is an old argument, dating back to before the series began actually, but here is a note from
JMS from 1994…

23 Jan 1994

If story ideas start appearing on this group, I’ll have to
withdraw. It ain’t something I like saying, because I know how it sounds,
but that’s the reality of it, in this very, very litigious society.

jms

(This is a reply to a usenet post)
17 Feb 1994

“Why can’t I write a story using the characters from B5 and publish
it here for all to read?”

Because it’s a violation of copyright and trademark. What part of
that sentence don’t you understand?

If you write a story and — using your own terms — “publish it here”
that instance of commonlaw copyright is a violation of the PTEN copyright
and trademark. My own personal feelings notwithstanding, *it’s the law*.

The only thing that really bothers me in this whole conversation is
that I didn’t want to get into a discussion of legalities, or lawyers, or
copyright infringement…all I said at the beginning was that I would like
to be here, to stay here, to participate in this experiment. And I asked,
as a courtesy, to be kept away from any story ideas because it opens me
up to legal liability. That’s all. Just a courtesy, in exchange for the
3 hours a day I spend on this system, reading 500 messages a day now, to
keep the lines of communication open.

Why is the request for a courtesy insufficient, and people have to
go to the legal aspect?

want to spend three years of my life or thereabouts giving depositions,
talking to lawyers, and spending hundreds of thousands of dollars and the

No fan fiction, no story ideas. Or I’m outta here. That’s tough to say, and

Folks,

Nothing has changed since day one.

Everything that was being discussed, without the “fan fiction” I don’t think there was a
problem with. It was the diliberate fan fiction that started the problem.

Speculation is fine, Always has been. But there is a line there as well. For instance:

I wish Garibaldi would get a woman for once!

and

“I wish Garibaldi would go down to Grey sector, meet up with a Brakiri woman, take her
in his arms and leave his station duties behind”

The first one is speculation, the second one would be a story idea.

Again, there isn’t a problem with what was being discussed in folders 1-3… its the fan
fiction that presents a problem. I’m sorry if some of you think that means the whole folder
is useless, and you will leave the area. Personally, I thought this group was beyond
thinking that way, and I also thought the group was fun to be around.

Nothing has changed since JMS first went online in 1991 on GEnie, fan fiction has never
been allowed for fear of lawsuit. And we have never had a problem on GEnie, the
Internet, or here before now.

Again, Im sorry if you feel you have to abandon all discussion. But abandoning talking
about someone altogether, for the sake of one little rule about fan fiction, isn’t hurting
anything but the integrity of the group. And, in my opinion, is kinda selfish, and a blow to
the very core of trust that has been built over the years.

Troy–I dont’ think anyone’s angry at you–but lots of folks are upset, and they’re going to
blow off steam. Please remember that we *are* all friends here, and friends blow off
steam, then it all blows over.

Feelings are hurt, chocolate will get eaten, and life will go on.

The problem is, when something is written here it’s kinda hard to “erase”, if ya know what
I mean. Neither you nor JMS should take any of this personally. We *will* get through
this–we are a family, you know.

Speaking of “family” (hehe), I just uploaded my pic to the B5 family album. I’m not sure
how long it’ll take to get uploaded for everyone, but it’s there now. I also sent a pic to
Brian to post in the Demigods/Saints section. I’m not sure if he’ll use it, but a good friend
quite kindly “altered” it so I’m wearing a halo. ;^)

Exactly, this folder is here to talk about what is happening to the character on B5. The
character and happenings that JMS has written about. If he can’t have us making things
up, then don’t. But we can still talk about Garibaldi and what is going on on the show.

As the Sainted Lady T so eloquently put it “We are all friends here”. No one set out to hurt
another. The one bad thing about conversing in cyberspace is that you cannot tell the tone
of voice or body language used by the other person. My cousin Skye and I talked about
this at length last nite. We’re feeling much better about everything now. A little temper

Nearby, the G-Monkee slowly regains consciousness. He attempts to move against the
tightly packed, soft, white kernals that press against every inch of his flesh, but to no avail.

“Either I’m dead,” he thinks to himself, “Or I’m trapped inside a bean-bag chair.”

Suddenly, he freezes, listening. Was that a voice? A woman’s voice?! A LADY’S

“They’ve come for me!” He whispers; his heart racing. “They’ve finally come for me! It
worked. My plan actually worked.” He is speechless with joy. The voices get closer (as
does the sound of chewing), then he hears what seams to be an arguement. The Ladies are
upset about something. One by one, the voices drift away.

The G-Monkee tries to scream, but his mouth fills with kernals.

<said with a direct gaze and in a solemn and low voice>

This seems to be a statement that, in the name of ‘community’, chastises members of the
group for not giving their ‘all’. Yet the whole–the fun, the community–drew on the
relationships and the ‘give and take’ that was a part of the banter and (totally insane)
‘stories’.

To admire the traffic, the sense of community, to want it but only on certain terms, and
then to apply labels such as ‘selfish’ when the tailored community isn’t served up…well, I
would have hoped for better.

The irony in all this is that ‘community’ is born of gifts. Gifts of the contributors to the
whole, and involvement in the whole. In this case, the very frivolity that seems to cause the
Powers That Be such grief is in a special and personal way a ‘gift’ back to JMS, a public
acknowledgement that “wow, this is special and great, and a heckuva lotta fun, this is just a
small thanks, but it’s meant a lot to me.”

Imagine your own personal reaction if you had worked on a special gift for someone and
presented it to them, only to have them refuse it and throw it back in your face. It is that
sense of rejection that is overwhelming.

So the choices seem to be to constantly ‘monitor’ the content here, and to brake sharply
whenever any ‘gifts’ of spirit are offered, or to continue the exchange and the community
in another context. To respect the intent of what you ask, while respecting the <<integrity
of the group>> you invoke, the only course would seem to be the latter.

I started to change the subject line, but even though this isn’t about popcorn, the title
seemed apt. Boy, you go underground for a few days to grade exams and when you poke
your head in again, all hell has broken loose!!

Bear with me here. Basics: I understand the desire to stand on principle. I respect that. I
even try to do it. I hate the idea that our fun might be curtailed – by anyone, including us. I
frankly think that construing our whimsy as fan fiction is either a tremendous compliment
or a symptom of paranoia, or both, but as an experienced paranoid, I can accept that.

Now, at this point, I may be preaching to the converted, but I hope that some of the folks
that said they were leaving might lurk long enough to read this. Whatever the facts are and
whatever the future is, we need to face it together. This is not a folder full of anonymous
posters. We’ve revealed ourselves here, gotten to know one another, and most of all,
enjoyed one another. Nothing should make us give that up. If there is anywhere on *this*
planet the creative energy necessary to solve a problem, in Valen’s name, it’s here. We
need to find our solutions together.
OK, this is corny, but I’m gonna do it anyway. Think Falling Toward Apotheosis, folks.

3. You check the ‘Spoiler Junkies’ pages every day for any little tidbit of info.
4. Your chocolate consumption has tripled.
5. Your family asks why you play the B5 sountrack every other CD.
6. You actually know the $ to pound exchange rate just in case you get some extra money
and can order some more of the neat B5 stuff from the UK.
7. You read back thru all the B5 comics and B5 books(books 1 & 3 are my favorites)
8. You read the entire weekly Zocolo online newsletter at one sitting.
9. You walk into the book store and before you can say a word the clerk says “I still don’t

Ok, as I try to dry my tears and wolf down
chocolate at the same time.

Troy, I bear you no ill will. You are only
doing what you have to do. I see why
but I do not like…enough said.

I suggest that we take the fiction elsewhere.
But that we stay here for other things. I know
it’s a pain (you should see what my e-mail looks
like) but we need to be here for the others to come.

If they want fan fiction they can seek it out. All they
have to do is ask. But to be honest I am not sure
where the speculation line lies.

I have something about Late Delivery from Avalon that
I think is relevant….but if it isn’t “in the can” and accurate
it could be construed as a story idea….not that it is to me.

Carolyn is not the only one that is getting paranoid. The
further along the story goes the worse it seems to get.
As more and more threads are tied up, the more likely
one of our intelligent members will hit something
on the head. But what if it should be something that
isn’t all ready filmed? Wouldn’t that be a potential
problem?

Troy, do you see what I mean? I want to stay here
(as well as go where ever the line tales go) but I have
to admit that I will be second guessing what ever I said.
It won’t nearly be much fun…but I’ll try.

Now I am going to say something that may get me in
big trouble. I’m not so sure at this point that JMS should
stay.

I was recently at a convention where Avery Brooks (Cisco-DS9)
spoke. He said that “we (that’s us, the viewers) complete the
thought.” How novel! Someone that realizes that without US
there is no B-5,no Star Trek, no X-files, etc. now or in the future.
JMS has taken all the steps to keep anyone from interferring with
his story. But to be honest, once it is out there…..it is ours to
discuss, like or dislike, watch or not watch. We do complete the
thought. Without us (meaning everyone that lobbied for a season
4) there would have been no season 4…..somewhere it would be
nice if it would be appreciate.

Feeling very unappreciated,

Speculation *is* allowed. If you have a comment about an ep, say it. JMS’s concern is
not about winning or losing a lawsuit–he firmly believes that no matter what is said, he
will win–he just doesn’t want to go through one, which is where the “story ideas” come
in. If it’s obvious you’re just speculating on what will happen, and not trying to
*convince* JMS that he should do it your way, then that’s okay. (Did I say that right
Troy?)

<< Carolyn is not the only one that is getting paranoid. >>

Subj: Re:Here I Go-Late Delivery
Date: 1/24/97 8:05:35 AM
From: AnnieWheel
Posted on: America Online

Ok, here it goes……..

Was rewatching the Late Delivery from Avalon episode the other day.
Since it gave us a clue about Marcus…..(“he who was without sin”)
I began to wonder what else there might be.

I know that most of us talked about this before but they did go to
a “round table” when they moved in to the War Council Room.
Nine seats if I counted right…..

But back to the story. Marcus lists a who’s who of matching
them and the Arthurean characters. He mentions that Ivanova
was most likely Sir Gwain. But Arthur stated that the reason
he had to meet with Mordred was because Gwain was dead and
Lancelot was gone.

Now from what little I know of the Arthurean legend. Lancelot
leaves and Percival and Gallahad are sent after him. At the
end we have Franklin as Percival and Marcus as Gallahad.

We know that Franklin and Marcus are going to spend two
episodes on Mars. Now who do we know who is supposedly
leaving the station (and where does he know best)?

This full circle thing is getting to me also. Arthur had to come
full circle in order to be healed. Franklin’s walkabout could
be considered coming full circle to meet himself. Sinclair
is definately caught in a loop……”I will take it back because
I took it back before and always will….”or something like that.

It seems that everyone is coming full circle. Delenn is supposed
to have to deal with her role in the Earth-Minbari War, something
out there in Garibaldi’s past is coming back to get him….and Sheridan…..
he seems to have returned from the dead…..that’s a circle and a half
in my book.

And the fact that Arthur kept opening doors in his dream…..then
Kosh II says that Sheridan opened an unexpected door. Then there
was the woman holding out her hand to Arthur in his dream…..then
Anna tried that on the precipice (sp?) and it was Delenn holding out
her hand that he reached for……”and if you should fall, I will catch you.”

Anyone else….see anything else in this episode….

And I don’t care what JMS says, I liked Grey 17 Is Missing.
The only problem I saw was too much emphasis on Delenn’s
ascension to Ranger One and too little with what was said
by those on Grey 17…there was no doubt what the B story
was and that usually isn’t true in his stories.

Where’s G#3? Has it disappeared into Grey 17, too.

Yes, I have been watching the reruns ad infinitum and I think our G-mon would make an
excellent Lancelot. Definitely the man to bring about destruction to his loved ones and then
go to all lengths to rescue them. Which gets me thinking….is G-mon off to Mars to find
Bester and get his mind fixed OR is he off on a mercy mission to help Lise (what kind of a
name is Fritz?) Worth a little speculation.

The other rerun I rewatched was Z’Ha’Dum (I’m never sure how to spell that…)
Anyways, in that episode, Sheridan and Garibaldi have a great scene in which Sheridan
gives G-mon a set of unusual orders. Garibaldi’s responce to the orders is great. It also
seemed to me, the scene in which they were the closest in spirit ever- both trusting each
other AND willing to help one another (at least from Garibaldi’s side) The next few times
they are together in FtA, there is no trust and even and element of distrust. My problem is,
who do I trust? I think JMS wants us to trust the “return from the dead” Sheridan implicitly
and distrust “initiate program” Garibaldi” completely. Since I’m on the nixes with JMS
(oops, there’s that negativism slipping in), I plan to go on putting my faith (and wishfully,
so hopefully as I stand firm at the end of the Line, and myself) in our beloved G-mon’s

Cindy, I posted something to this effect on the episode boards I think, but if it was here,
forgive me for repeating myself. I think the scene you mention in Z’ha’dum was a key set-
up scene for season 4. That interaction of Sheridan and Garibaldi, the trust between them –
hard earned trust, the way they now depend on one another. That wasn’t a throw away.

Now I’ve gotten jumped on for what I’m about to say, but I still believe it, so I’m going to
say it again, and then duck. Later in ep, Justin talks about removing Sheridan’s support
system and — flame throwers down gang — I know that yes, it does mean B5 *but* I
believe on some level it also means very specifically Garibaldi. Sheridan blows up Z.,
shadow ships pull away from B5, but not before they grab the chief. I don’t think I’m
altogether out of line here. (oops, there’s that word again)

Shift to season 4. Voiceover. The year is 2261 (Garibaldi) The place Babylon 5 (Sheridan)
*but* I for one had to play the tape back 3 times before I was sure that that’s how it was.
First I thought it was all Garibaldi, then I thought all Sheridan. The voices almost blend. I
think that’s significant. I don’t believe it’s an accident. I think season 4 belongs to
Sheridan and Garibaldi.

Thoughts? I’m wearing my asbestos underwear.

Well, if memory serves, the season 4 intro does contain the line “It was the end of history”.
Sounds rather ominous. Don’t you think? The end of whose history? Mankind? Just
Earth? Next step in human evolution? Those that are speaking are speaking past tense?
Sounds that way to me. If that is the case, then perhaps all of our major characters WILL
make it through Season 4. And, of coure there WILL be a season 5. All the Line chant
together, “Season 5 for B5…Season 5 for B5…) I feel another letter coming on…..

I was listening again last night and I think the voices are now more distinct. Yes, I agree
that season 4 belongs to those two, but I also think that the “blending” was an accident and
has now been corrected. However, I’ll have to listen to the HotW intro again to verify that.

Gather ’round, people, as The “Sainted” Lady steps up to the pulpit:

I’m here to talk about what’s happened to us, to all of us. I am still so touched by what our
sister WaywardFlf said earlier:

“Imagine your own personal reaction if you had worked on a special gift for someone and
presented it to them, only to have them refuse it and throw it back in your face. It is that
sense of rejection that is overwhelming.”

Yes, we have all felt rejected here. But what of the rejection others feel? Have not others
gifted us and, through our frustrated posts, now feel rejected as well?

As a duly annointed Saint in the holy Church of Joe, I ask that we begin anew. Let us
forget our past, let us forgive eachother, let us look to the future with bright eyes and warm
hearts. Let us remember The One Who We Adore and why we adore him.

Our brother Troy has told us that we have not sinned, yet. For those of us who believe we
have sinned, let us look upon that as our sins having been forgiven and go from there lest
our sins be revealed to the world and The Great Maker be forced to leave.

Let us also remember the warnings issued in The Great Maker’s posts that our brother Troy
so kindly reposted for us. But let us remember that these warnings were issued not to US
but to irate and irresponsible fans who were trying to impose their will upon The Great
Maker.

Let us remember that The Line cannot die, that Our Battle will continue, and that the reason
we joined together–to give our G-mon all the love and affection The Great Maker is
denying him–*is* valid and will continue to be valid as long as The Great Maker denies
him love.

We gathered here in LOVE–not only for our G-mon, but for eachother. That has and
always will be the appeal of The G-mon-ites. Let us continue to join together–in LOVE.

Together let us forever sing the Garibaldi Chorus:

Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi
Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi

Oh, how our G-mon needs to have romance!
Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi

Yes, Season Four is when he needs romance!
Oh Straczynski, oh Straczynski, Please Listen To Me!

Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi
Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi, Garibaldi

With Light and Love,

I’ve spent alot of time thinking about this one. Even though who ever it was(I think Psi
Corp)gasses him before he could really hurt himself. But then if it was Psi Corp why
wouldn’t they just scan him. Or maybe they did. Or maybe, just maybe, since he had
stated once that he “was afraid all the time that he may lose control” that’s what they were
wanting him to do. i.e. give into his greatest fear. That could have all sorts of
psyhological implications. Maybe PsiCorp was wanting any ‘dirt’ that Garibaldi had on
Bester. The PsiCops may be in for a power struggle.

OK. I’ve been meditating on Whatever Happened… and following episodes and have had
some thoughts I’ve wanted to put forth for reactions. I’ve been hesitating because I don’t
know how to lay out my line of reasoning for all of you without feeling like maybe I’m
over the line into the kind of speculation that borders on story ideas and therefore is a no-no
(are you listening, Troy?)

<She finally inhales> Ya know what? I’m gonna post it anyway.

The whole “what do you remember” thing in the cell scene bothered me. Psi Corp could
take what they want, and I’m convinced that Psi Corp — or some from Psi Corp — are
responsible. So this is a test, to be sure that he doesn’t remember because they don’t want
him to remember. This suggests they’ve wiped his memory, but if they did, why go
through this stress test afterward, and run the risk that he would remember *it*? Why not
just wipe him and send him back? These guys are pros. They know how to do a memory
wipe. They don’t need to check their work. And they stop when he loses it. Then
Garibaldi gets back to the station and everybody and their third cousin says “what do you
remember” almost like they were in league with Psi Corp (or whoever it was).

So here’s my theory: No implant. Just a memory wipe, and then the push him over the
inability to remember. Push and push and push on the fact that he doesn’t remember until
he goes over the edge. Then send him back, knowing that the question “what do you
remember” will be asked again and again….. and wait for him to lose it back on the station.
Tap into the rage he struggles with and fears, and use it as a weapon against him and the
station.

And, my friends, here’s the part that really creeps me out…do we all remember who heard
him say “I’m afraid every day of what I might do if I ever really let go” ???

Is the queasiness I feel from too much chocolate?

here hehehehe) that the G-mon was wrapped up pretty snugly. Under those lights it
probably was like a sauna, but I wonder if they considered leaving him wrapped up and
walking away after the scene was finished? Just for a few mins of course!

While pondering my dinner tonight……(always do my
thinking while eating)

I came up with a new possibility for Sheridan’s visions.

Sheridan in a Psi Corp uniform……he’s the plant on the station and doesn’t know it.
Ivanova in widow’s clothes with a raven (crow) on her shoulder….someone dies and it
isn’t Sheridan…..could be her, could be Marcus, could be the cause…..

Garibaldi in white with a dove……Our G-mon is the Michael that will throw the devil out
of B5……could be Lorien….might even be Sheridan…..remember….that when we
flashed ahead 17 years….the Shadows were destroying Centauri Prime….how did
they survive Armaggedon? Delenn said the war was won but not completely and
then that business about the loss of innocence….

None of JMS’s characters are all good or all evil. They are a mix of both. So far John’s
been the good boy…..the hero. Every other character has had a dark side….except maybe
Ivanova….or Marcus. Where’s John’s dark side? He has been to Mars. He told Sinclair
that he hadn’t seen him since the Mars Riots. And we all know what is on Mars.

Does any of this make any sense to anyone?

Hello again!
I have been lurking since my first post and have a few questions. When did G#3 leave
earth for orbit in to the outer reaches of space and how do I get copies of folders 1 & 2? I
am very sorry to read about all of the trouble you (we) had (have) with your (our) fan fic
fun. It was a real hoot to read and I will miss it. I still love the G-man and what a man he
is!!!!!!!!

Here in my little corner of Arkansas the TV guide says that this week will be a rerun, the
show plays on Sunday at 10PM. But next week will start the new eps. I have been
faithfull watching all eps that have rerun and am on pins and needles to watch the new
ones. Oh please hurry. Thankfully I have plenty of chocolate to hold me over or I would
never make it with sanity in tact. Is there any popcorn left???? I wonder what chocolate
covered popcorn would taste like?????

I finally made it to the COJ and must say I am impressed. It was great!! Will be going
there often to see more.

Good thoughts Annie! Long ago jms had insinuated that there was another ‘agent’ planted
on B5. Could be Sheridan, he may not even be aware of it. That always bothered me
about him wearing that PsiCorp uniform in the dream sequence he had. Sheridan’s
personality has always seemed strange to me. Two sided. One side being compassionate,
as exhibited when the injured Narns were being brought aboard the station, when he said
he didn’t want anybody to die cold and alone. The other side seems ruthless, cold and
calculating. We don’t see that side often, but it’s there.

jms had also said that there was someone that had been a tratior on the station from the
Earth-Mimbari War. Ivonava is too young. We know that Franklin said he refused to help
the EA
by destroying his notes on the Mimbari. Garibaldi was a Gropos. Would he have had
acess to any valuable info. that leaves the Captian. Marcus was also probably too young.
Questions …..ever more questions…….Argh……………..

Welcome back PJ. Glad you have delurked again. To access the archived folders: from
the B5 screen that currently has Marcus’ picture and it lookes like a corridador on the
station. Click the choice that is furthest over on the right. It has a faint outline of the
station on it. It will say BabCom Special Transmissions and Logs. Select Transmissions
and Logs. There you will find the earlier folders. As of this post, folder 3 has not been
posted yet. Aol traffic being what it has been recently that does not surprise me.

Do you remember the last shot of Severed Dreams? Sheridan is taking the applause of the
crowd in the Zocolo and camera goes over the shoulder to poster that says “Traitors Can’t
Hide” Much was made at the time of the fact that Ivanova was the only one whose face
remainded in that shot. But it was the Captain’s moment, wasn’t it? Or actually, it was
Sheridan and Delenn’s moment. Which leads me to wonder about the upcoming
Atonement. What is it that Delenn must face about her role in the Earth-Mimbari war???

A chat sounds like a great idea – let me know please!

Troy – any chance of you coming to a convention. That was a topic in G#3 and I never read
whether it was resolved or not.

Does anyone know the lyrics to “I’m a Lumberjack and I’m okay!” because it would make
a great song, along the lines of …

“I’m a G-monite and I’m okay,
I wait in Line both night and day…”

I need the real words to parody the tune well.

Carolyn – I remember your post re: similar voices and I think that’s a neat tact. JMS
wouldn’t create a character as full as Garibaldi and then just dump him. He’s integral
somehow and I just hope that it’s not in a way similar to Sinclair’s premonition. At least, if
he is narrating opening dialogue, he can’t end up dead or a traitor.

I can’t wait for a new episode. !!!!

The idea of a chat with my fellow G-monites is attractive enough to make even a chat room
wah out like me interested. (I don’t know what it is. Normally doing 6 or 8 things at once
is not a problem – I’m a working mother. But I go on sensory overload in a chat room.) So
I may do little more than lurk, but I’ll be there.

Friday nights are fine. Saturday I need advance warning for so I can get Dad to take over
taxi service. Wednesday nights are *OUT* — my 14year old daughter is in a Sim (based
on that *other* show). I’m a perpetual volunteer, but have no idea how to arrange such a
thing.

As best I can remember, The Lumberjack Song goes somewhat like this:

Verse 1:
Oh, I’m a lumberjack and I’m okay,
I sleep all night and I work all day!

Chorus:
He’s a lumberjack and he’s okay,
He sleeps all night and he works all day!

Verse 2:
I cut down trees, I eat my lunch, I go to the lavatory
On Wednesdays I go shopping and have buttered scones for tea.

(Special note: Lavatory is pronounced “lava-tree” in the song)

Chorus:
He cuts down trees, he eats his lunch, he goes to the lavatory,
On Wednesdays he goes shopping, and has buttered scones for tea.

Verse 3:

I cut down trees, I skip and jump, I like to press wildflowers,
I put on women’s clothing and hang around in bars!

Chorus:

He cuts down trees, he skips and jumps, he likes to press wildflowers,
He puts on women’s clothing, and *hangs around in bars?*

The fourth verse is missing from my pathetic little mental harddrive, but it ends with…”I
wish I’d been a girlie, just like my dear Papa!”

The Lumberjack Song was once published in a book of Python songs, if anyone has it,
they can complete my version and clean up mistakes. Because I don’t have the book, and
so wrote it out from memory. Anyhow, Capercaille, hope that helps.

Chatroom get-together??? Keen! Anytime, anyday, I’ll be there! Jes’ let me know…

A few kajillion posts back, someone mentioned that Garibaldi’s birthday is Feb. 22nd or
23rd. Wouldn’t that make a great date for the inagural group chat? (The 22nd is a
Saturday.) Many happy returns to all you birthday revelers – long may you live and shortly
may you wait!

Hey, all you DC-ers – The handsome (although lacking a few Garibaldi inches) husband
and I are bringing the mini-minbari to DC the third week in March. Can we all meet
somewhere for flarn?

Thanks to everyone for the Lumberjack lyrics – it will be good fodder for the free periods
(what lesson plans?!) this week. Will try to post again soon.

Finally saw the pic of our beloved Sainted Lady T – great job! Such a fun area to visit!

Oh, great snow day today so we all stayed home together. Great chance to rewatch CoS
and FtA. You know, I really like the banter between Zack and the beloved G-mon.
Originally, I didn’t care for the character but he’s had several good scenes already this
season.

And yes, I could rewatch the Med-lab scene just for the “I really hate that” line several
times (and yes, I love my “cheering up” memo from a few weeks back.)

Hope we can all chat together. I, too, am a neophyte. Do I need some kind of special
system to do that?

Singing in the shower andkicking up my heels,
Hope you are all well and happy,
May your dreams be filled with visions of the G-mon!

-Capercaillie whose daughter has a July 16th birthday, just like JD!

I submit for your…, as Rod Serling used to say, and ever does on reruns, Perhaps even
tho jms
has the main story fully delineated in his head, some of the details and side-threads are not
yet composed. If he read something here that started a new train of thought, he might not
appreciate.
Don’t get me wrong. Finally got on the web for Christmas (thank you, Santa!), saw B5
page and ate up (just like chocolate, the 5th food group). Then I found this crazy place. Or
it found me.
Perhaps I really did hear that voice in my head. I chuckled, I laughed, I loved. But I
understand jms’s position too. And I am guilty as well. Its subversive; and lo-cal fun. I
too believe that taking the zany story lines somewhere else would be fun. If it finds a
home, someone please put me down for being in on it. Just love to see and hear all those
neurons poppin’. Ah, the little grey

Subj: Garibaldi & The Shadows
Date: 1/29/97 4:40:46 PM
From: MMcgreavy
Posted on: America Online

In the episode in which Mr. Garibaldi is kidnapped I see so little interest by those fans as to
why he was kidnapped. We know that some how he got to PSI corp. But the impression I
get is that PSI corp really don’t have any idea how he got there.

So why does Mr. Garibaldi keep his kidnapping by the Shadows to himself. We do know
that is keeping the event to himself. Dr. Franklin asked and he gave some lame excuse.
Mr. Garibaldi knows something. What could it be?

Suppose that The Person who mans the shadow ship is to put it bluntly Talia Winters.
Here we have a member of PSI corp as a CPU in a shadow ship. But we also Know that
She has two personalities. Could one of her pesonalities surface after being interfaced with
the Shadow. Could she now be imprisoned in not only body but machine.

She is than sent on a mission to destroy B5. And there below her is a friend and coworker.
Isn’t it plausible in the B5 world to think that one half of Talia would try to save some one
who she knows was a friend. Once she has saved her friend where could she deposit him
where could she find him some safety. Isn’t the PSI Corps “mother and father”. So she
arranges some how to entrust to him to the PSI corp.

The PSI Corps would like to know what happened. He, Mr Garibaldi, would of course
not like to disclose that Talia Winters is now a Shadow.

That is my thinking on the matter. It’s probably a hill of beans. But JMS does things for a
purpose. So why is he Kidnapped. To give a plot device for G’Kar to leave the station
perhaps. There must be something more in stall for Mr. Garibaldi.

If any and all have any other ideas please could you help me with thank you.

I am a Sagitarrius married to a cuspy Capricorn. Things have been great for fifteen years

We have two male Aries and the afore-mentioned wicked Cancer daughter.

WRT WHtMG He hasn’t persued what happened to him because he only remembers
fragments of the experience. Rewatch FtA and see if you think he is being honest when he
is talking to Zack. I, of course, devoted G-mon-ite, believe that he is for real and does not
remember what happened. I think he is jumpy because, he doesn’t feel in control of things.
If you watch when Franklin checks him out (why didn’t I go to med school?!), he seems
genuinely relieved when Franklin says there is no shadow-type scarring.

As he would have said to his companion…..

“Let us not get ahead of ourselves, mon ami.” Well, JMS does have
a lot of the side stories done. He has a plan. What I saddens me is
that some of it will have to be sacrificed because there will be no time
to explore it.

The story is already there. What he has to do now if the rumors are
true is pick and choose what has to be told and what can be told later
in comics or in novels or whatever.

The problem is that unless it is on the screen you loose those “looks.”
That is especially true of Garibaldi.

IMO, I think that might have something to do with the emperor letting them set up a base of
sorts there. Maybe Londo tries to get rid of them, but can’t because they are already so
integrated into the planet. Londo might beg the people on B5 to spare his planet assuring
them that he will get rid of the Shadows himself. But he can’t do it, so when the war is
over, they reck havoc on Centauri because he even tried. Just my thoughts and I hope

house…aw well, I’m here, I’ll stick it out…LOL

To LadyT, love the halo…

To Holly, I’m mountain time…Utah…yeah don’t ask…want to sit in on chat, if I may…

To all the ladies of the line, I saw the new episode last night, loved it…Violence is
here…and Garibaldi gets a couple of close-ups, and now I need to find colored contacts to
match his eyes, to trick the ladies…just need to get that look down…

Hi Missy……..

Welcome to the boards and the line…….

One of us will pass your E-mail address on to the others and
you will begin to hear from us. Read the 3 Garibaldi folders
in Special Transmissions…..they can be downloaded for
some background. Then start at the beginning of #4 and
take it from there.

Take heart, Annie. Would you believe older than dirt — 1948? It’s only a number, not a
limitation.
Half the time I can’t remember how old I am, and that’s not incipient Alzheimer’s. Just,
who cares. I’m too busy living life and analyzing myself and everything else to death to
count b”days.
I’ll have time to count years and look over memories when they nail me into that rocker in

This girl checked in on 12/4/58. Am keeping up with the students at aerobics class but I
think I take more naps than they do.

Dear Sainted Lady, and DC-ites, hope to see you all down there.

36 hours to go and am panting with SeaSlug’s teasers!

The Sunday afternoon time slot works for me – especially if the mini-mimbari are napping –
they’re growing out of that – major bummer!

Here’s the first bit:

I’m a G-mon-ite
And I’m okay
I wait all night
And I wait all day
I’m waiting for the G-mon
‘Cause he’s so wicked cute
If I had delurked sooner
I wouldn’t need this suit!

Cheerio! Caper who has hubby, kids, worries, and lots of fun with the Ladies of the Line

Saturdays or Sundays are fine for me but are we still shooting for Garibaldi’s birthday
weekend?

(Our school mascot is the Lumberjack but I don’t think I should send the Trustees Wrngtl’s
words from Monty Python.)

Here goes:

I’m a G-mon-ite
And I’m okay
I wait all night
And I wait all day
She’s a G-mon-ite
And she’s okay
She waits all night
And she waits all day
I sing his songs
I eat pop corn
I send out for chocolate cake
And sometimes I write screenplays
For scenes I wish they’d make (with LOL for G-mon :) !!!)
She sings his songs
She eats pop corn
She send out for chocolate cake
And sometimes she writes screenplays
Of scenes she hopes they make
She’s a G-mon-ite
And she’s okay
She waits all night
And she waits all day
I sing his songs
I dream and sigh
I visit G-mon’s shrine
I’m running up my phone bill
From hanging out on-line!
She sings his songs
She dreams and sighs
She visits G-mon’s shrine
Her husband cannot seel her
‘Cause she’s always in the line!
She’s a G-mon-ite
And she’s okay
She waits all night
And she waits all day
I sing his songs
I cook his meals
Canoles and spaghet
I hope he gets a girlfirend
But it hasn’t happened yet!
She sings his songs
She wields a sword
Her batle cry’s “Aw, nuts”
She says she’ll speak to big Joe
But does she have the guts? (sorry, all I could rhyme with “nuts”)
She’s a G-mon-ite
And she’s okay
She waits all night
And she waits all day!

BTW: another favorite Monty Python
“I spent all day trying to bury the cat”
“That must have been hard for you”
“I’d say it was. The damned thing wouldn’t stay still!”

Plays better that way than any other so far…….

By the way…….the guy on Z’ha’dum…Justin(?) said about
taking out the support group….being as paranoid as Garibaldi,
sending out my support lady (Ivanova) with Lorien just doesn’t
sound like sound judgement….especially when it seems it was

(having recovered) The first one was a surprise, the second was planned, and we were

Britanya, our latest internet G-mon-ite (and yes, she’s from the UK), imparted a little info
that I felt needed to be shared. It seems she has a tape of the “first sighting” of our Doyle-
mon in a Moonlighting episode.

<<This tape, entitled “Cool Hand Dave” not only features the G-mon, but also Ken Foree
(PFC Large in ‘Gropos’). It is further authenticated by the opening sequence containing a
fortune teller who gazes into her crystal ball. The first words she utters are; ” the shadows
are retreating”. I feel this information would be of use to your valiant self and the other G-
monites far across the blue water………>>

And here I thought the only Moonlighting ep he was in was the twisted Taming of the
Shrew ep.

BTW, the title she asked for (and received) was Keeper of The First Sight Record….

Could only have one (Sigh!) but he’s a real love. I’m a lucky mother. Eye candy with

I thought that it seemed that the Captian, Delenn etc. were ignoring the G-mon.(Lennier
too) Did it seem that way to anyone else? He had such strange expressions on his face. I
wonder what was going on behind those beautiful blue eyes? It seems to me that Lorien
seems to be orchestrating(sp) quite a bit of the goings on. Is he luring all the First Ones

I was struck by the fact that the Chief did not seem as paranoid or as cranky as in the last
few episodes and I wondered why. He seems to be the only one who can see the enormity
of the forces gathering against the Army of Light — maybe that makes him sound negative,
but I think it also makes him a realist. I keep going back to the fact that Garibaldi had a
dove on his shoulder in Sheridan’s dream. Maybe his role is to ask us if this war is really a
good idea?

You may have a point there Carolyn. I have heard that dream sequence interpreted so many
ways. the G-mon did have that dove on his shoulder. When I first saw it I thought it must
be a falcon because it was so large, but it was a dove. Maybe it will be Garibaldi who
saves the universe!

Well, it was worth the wait. Even my X-phile husband thought so. I agree that Chief was
not as cranky as before. But, didn’t you love those close-ups. Muchos thanks for the pre-
warning Seaslug as I was alert at midnight to catch the baby blues. I like the dove
interpretation. Sheridan has been much too “gung-ho” since his return from the dead. What
ever happened to this “place of diplomacy”?

BTW Khan, we had two – a boy and a girl – and then we went to the handsome husband’s
20th high school reunion where I met classmates who were grandparents. Now, as we plan
for his 25th reunion, we have a child who will be 4 years and 3 months at the reunion. The
oldest, also a March baby, was the best 4th of July ever!! Still smiling after MANY years!

Last nite Kat, Annie, Khan and I were online at the same time. We created a priviate chat
room called Gmon. Needless to say we had a wonderful time….lots of laughter and
schemeing;). Had a bit of problem with the cyber popcorn though. I encourage everyone
to use their Buddy Lists when they are online. We’ve got some wonderful(and
crazy)people here!

If one of my four cats stepped on the remote, that would be the least of my
problems. They much prefer to step on the keyboard when I’ve turned my
back briefly and cause it to shut down, or walk all over the phone and auto-
dial 911. Those emergency operators must think I’m nuts when telling them
it was the cat that called.

Hey, gang! Checked my info today. Are we aware that 2/23 is not just the G-mon’s
birthday — it’s his 40th!!! I think we *have* to do a chat that day! H**L! Troy: Call JD
and tell him Garibaldi’s invited to his own birthday party!!!

BTW, have you folks checked out the Jerry Doyle Drooling Page?? (Whoever it was that
posted it, THANK YOU!) (Drool, drool, pant, gasp, slobber, drool…. )

…that you’ve been in The Line too long when:

*the Rotador (otherwise known as Houdini with fur) finally comes home, carrying a Daffy
Duck squeaky toy.

*you give your annual “something-besides-my-teaching-that’s-important-to-me”
presentation to the School on chocolate.

*you start scheduling trips to the Shrine into your daily planner.

*you tell your boss you can’t make a meeting then, because you’re booked (but you don’t
tell her it’s for a trip to the Shrine)

All true! I swear!
ARgh!!!!!

Thanks for the welcome, Holly. Actually, I have posted before but it’s been
quite some time. At that time I chose to join the order of Michaeline knights,
pledging my oath of fealty and protection to the G-Mon, the Line and the
Great Vorlon God Boogie. Having spent the last eleven years of my life in the
Security field, it seemed only appropriate to guard the line.

I prefer Dr. Pepper but Pepsi is fine, and chocolate…well, along with ambrosia,
it must surely be the food of the gods. Birthday: 8/21/60. Leo, through and

I think Draal sent the popcorn ball back in time a thousand years to Babylon 4 as part of a
temporal ‘Marshall Plan’ to feed starving Minbari after the last Shadow War.

Finally decided to talk, after lurking for months. Best liquids:morning-iced tea, afternoon:
diet coke, evenings: white wine with ice. All of the above go with chocolate, gumdrops,
esp. valentine reds and whites and popcorn. Birthday: 10-30-41- 5 kids, 3 grandkids (just
babies). The date on my online name:CAT21762 refers to my love of cats (I have 4) and
the marriage date with the love of my life: 35 years next week. I have watched Babylon 5
for 4 years, taped everything for 3 yrs (lost some when moved to Nebraska 3/94) and
believe that Garibaldi is best looking guy (that’s available) on this show. I loved your little
stories about the line. If I got in it, I would have to have some books, candy and drinks,
what depends on time of day. Dolores

Garibaldi a traitor???? Never.

What I liked about the way they handled it is how subtle the changes were. They didn’t
have the Chief acting obviously sinister or different. Outwardly to the casual observer he
seemed like the same guy. But if you are intimately familiar with the Chiefs every tic (as so
many people here seem to be) there is something subtly different about his demeanor.

Here are some questions and observations to add some fresh discussions to this forum.

 

 
Suppose Garibaldi is the “ace in the hole” Bester refers to. Those flashbacks from G-
mon’s post conditioning interrogation show a psi-cop with Bester’s build? Does the G-
mon have treason in his character?

I wonder if Garibaldi is to be used purely for propaganda purposes or will he be given
more covert acts of sabotage to undermine B-5?

Can Sheridan afford to have someone with Garibaldi’s knowledge of B-5 around without
being absolutely sure of him. Will he have Lyta scan him? If the conditioning is so
thorough and Lyta is indeed such a strong telepath, can she neutralize it’s effects and bring
the old G-mon?

Any ideas?

Jerry Dole is great for the part. He is Mr. Garibaldi. He breathes life into the character,
which makes B5 the best show on the tube.

Hi there! After a battle with the billing dept, I come back. (Been gone a month and a half)
And what do I see???
No more tales…hurt feelings…folks leaving or afraid to discuss an episode for fear of
crossing the line….
Sheesh!
I admit I agree with the comment “what do we talk about?” Before I left, I had a feeling
someone would fuss about our fun. And I never felt comfortable with the “be careful what
you say or JMS will leave” request. So I kept my personal comments to a minimum.
Eventually I was only lurking for the last few weeks before I disappeared.
I haven’t even been watching the show itself. Just taping it. But I did watch the latest
episode (the ISN report). I’ve never felt so disappointed and disheartened. I won’t go into
detail here, for the sake of those who haven’t seen it. Anyone who wants to hear my
discourse feel free to e-mail me. :)
It is good to see the board’s still around. But it’s just not the same…
