Could this be the big news?

It's not on stands yet, (or it wasn't at the Borders I went to) but I might have a type-up for you later.

You will please to be noting that I SO CALLED the "year of the Matrix" thing on the calendar page.
I almost put it on the actual calendar but it was getting too gaudy as it was.

Whoa, I have periodical precognition.

UPDATE: Rhonda and Keanuette rock for sending me this link:

*SPOILERAGE***Consider yourself warned*

I'll try, but it'll be in January as there's no way in hell I'm going to a post office next week.
You can't get Newsweek in London?

Not to be a stickler for details or anything, but I don't think that is Keanu as neo on the front. The famous widow's peak seems to be askew, and what is it with the chin? Bad lighting, or really really bad lighting? Either way -- yuk!

Krix, you were right, from the

December 22nd, 2002-------------------------

First, we remain stunned by the level of online interest and support. Within seconds of our posting the riddle, people were trying to solve it. Incredible.

Now, the answer to the riddle is:

A double issue cover story in NEWSWEEK, on stands today.

The article is peppered with spoilers, so be warned. The images, however, speak for themselves. The particular gem is the cover, a VFX shot where Neo is doing the impossible, just under the NEWSWEEK logo.

The article is online at:

You want more, you say? Sure (but we're not calling this an update). For those who want a better understanding of how THE MATRIX came into existence, THE 2ND RENAISSANCE is the place to start. This epic anime story tells of the many steps that led to the first war between man and machine. This will be the first episode to be released for THE ANIMATRIX, a collection of Matrix based anime shorts. Be prepared, as this particular history lesson gives visceral insights that are far beyond what is currently known about THE MATRIX. Written by Larry and Andy Wachowski and directed by Mahiro Maeda (BLUE SUBMARINE No. 6).

Coming in February, THE 2ND RENAISSANCE: PART ONE will be the first of THE ANIMATRIX episodes to launch, with more to follow. In fact, there will be new episodes to download right through the months leading to the event we are all waiting for, the May 15th premier of THE MATRIX: RELOADED. While we are not releasing all nine online (as there is a DVD on the way), those we are encoding will be complete and uncut, pulled directly from the digital source files.

THE 2ND RENAISSANCE: PART ONE. Find out how it all began.


We wish everyone a great holiday!

Uh... I do love the idea of two Keanu movies being The Ones of 2003.
Let me just say one thing: I have the feeling this will be a wonderful year for Keanu.
Let's hope I have Krix's abilities... ;)

Thanks for that link, 'ette.

Tyler, get with the program *wink*
The greeting of choice is now "Happy Neo Year!"

Bea, as long as you don't try to touch your nose with your tongue, I'm happy to share my other abilities :)

My humble apologies Krix. :)

I probably should have given a REALLY REALLY BIG SPOILER WARNING, uh? Thought about it the second that I hit the post button which was a second too late. Sorry about that all you Matrix virgins. :)

Happy Neo Year,
Matrix (and still former ass clown?) HoHoHo

keanu thinks HE misses Neo...dude, is it May yet?

Posted by: Lori on December 22, 2002 09:01 PM

No. I know because I am counting the hours.

Posted by: Tyler on December 22, 2002 09:12 PM

Damn I bought this today, but no NEO on the cover!!

The pix inside have come out really bad and I started to read the article, then, I kicked myself...
