This blog is a weird thing. I guess it’s existed a while, and I’ve pretty much always had a website of some sort once I bought johnstewart.com.
The earliest incarnation at archive.org is 2000; seems about right. It looked pretty much like pictured here,Â this from 2001.
I must say it was pretty impressive and high tech, compared to itsÂ contemporaries. There was a design, an aesthetic, and it wasn’t a total eyesore. The blue text was actually my handwriting, with a Sharpie, scanned in and turned into a transparent .gif. When you rolled over the text, it would switch to a red-colored word, done the same way (but from a different scan).
Always this has just been a vanity site, a way to communicate with people in my real life, meatspace. It’s a way to show photos to and of my friends and family. … Read More »
My namesake is dead… no, not the Jon Stewart who comes up when you google "John Stewart" (dammit, people, can’t you spell?). No, not me.
The one who wrote "Daydream Believer" for the Monkees.
The one who was in the Kingston Trio.
The one to whom a few emails were intended, but were sent to me.
Rest in peace, dude.

Utah School Books the Wrong Jon Stewart
Wed Apr 12, 10:11 PM ET
An embarrassed charter school has discovered it booked the wrong Jon Stewart for its annual gala. The DaVinci Academy thought it had made a deal with comedian Jon Stewart, star of "The Daily Show" and host of this year’s Academy Awards, to appear next week.It sent out 500 invitations to businesses and planned for 900 people.
But last week, it learned that it had booked Jon A. Stewart, a former motivational speaker, businessman and part-time professional wrestler from Chicago.
Shit, if any John Stewart will suffice, I’ll do it!
