Which Jack T Chick interview is this from approx 1997/1998?

Maybe six or seven years ago I barely remember reading on the Internet a profile of Jack T. Chick. I think I remember the interviewer was an ex-born-again christian looking back in at a strange world-view with new eyes. I remember things such as a) a personal interview with Chick, b) a picture of chick {possibly wearing a helmet of some sort??}, and c) bemused author commentary on some of the salacious secular imagery leaking through the reactionary artist's work {including a sexy image of eve shown from one of the tracts}. Anybody know what I'm talking about? My memory is fuzzy and Google search didn't turn up anything.

From googling for "jack chick tract eve personal interview," I found the name Dwayne Walker. It seems like the page you are looking for is http://www.walkertown.com/jack.html which no longer exists. Here it is at wayback.

Response by poster: Holy shit dude, you're a Google super-sleuth. Thanks.

Here's the LA Magazine bio on Chick that everyone dug, but it seems everyone forgot about the superior one as it slipped down the memory hole.

PS - [anybody reading] what's the deal with the Internet archive and the Google cache, do the archived entries and/or cache eventually fall out of existence too once a website is gone long enough? {it seems like this is very much the case with Google cache}

PPS - [ditto] Instead of PS I often see the term NB used on the Internet - what's the meaning and appropriate context of usage for these terms? Can I add on to NB, like NNB?

{augghh, question overload!!}

dgaicun: NB is short for nota bene, Latin meaning "note well" and common in academia. It would not make sense to extend it to nota nota bene.

It's also the name of a hardcore bibliographically-multitalented word processor descended from the inimitable XyWrite.

NB stands for Nota Bene which means pay close attention. It's usually an indicator that something is exceptionally important. This might be safety instructions or a hint from your professor that what follows will be on the next midterm. I've often seen it in academic texts where tricky parts of a proof are illustrated.
