*hangs head in shame* ...I had only ever heard one JC song and I didnt like it so I tossed it out of my mind as not my kind of music. After the whole who has the biggest geek over the GeekAdvancement video I purchased a few more songs to give it another go. It. Is. Frikken. Brilliant. I was so very very wrong... his music is amazing. I hence forth have become a Coulton fan and offer my sincere apologies to Wil and Jonathan for having dismissed the music and anything that was said related to him previously. *beats chest* Mea Culpa...Mea Culpa...Mea maxima culpa...

Wil, First let me say thank you for being a voice for a lot of us. I cant say that I have much disagreed with any of the points you have made over the time that I have been reading your blog and your other works. I am truly sorry that you felt exploited, that feeling just frikken sucks, and to feel that way over something that you felt you were doing in a positive light adds another dimension to the suck factor. A lot of the replies to this post I believe have taken what you wrote completely out of context and a lot of people seem to have taken offense on some level or another... to those of you that do all I can suggest is that you re-read the post whilst taking a drink and breathing deeply. Realize that Wil is one of the few true geeks out there that has a powerful voice and presence that has helped to further the sub-culture that you are so proudly a member off. Get off the high horses and stop trying to compare who the bigger "geek". A suggestion Wil, I know you are crazy busy man, but have you thought of maybe making your OWN video a la the way they did theirs but using your friends, followers, fans? I'm sure you know a bunch of geeks that are out there that work in the media and can be recognized by non-geeks. Chris Hardwick for example. I think if you did/spear-headed something like that a lot of us that follow your blog would submit entries that could be tied together into a similar video that would better represent the geek in all of us. Forever a Wheatonhead, Frankie.

eh. all kinds man. I dont think its up to anyone to decide who is and who isnt. If someone thinks themselves a geek. Then let them be one... Im I more a geek than the next person because i know who Felicia Day is and enjoy the Guild? I dont think so. Or because I can sit here and configure a cisco router? I dont like Jonathan Coulton music because im not into it...other are and thats all well and good. Sooo am I not a geek then because I dont like his music?

I get where you are coming from. And actually I think they did exploit it a bit as a marketing ploy...but in truth a lot of them I think are geeks, even if they dont play DnD. They should mind you, maybe they are afraid of enjoy it, eh regardless, I think everyone is a "geek" about something. Be it sports, computers, comics, role playing games, internet, movies, etc. As long as whatever it is makes a person happy no one has a right to judge em for it. Well. As long as its not murder sprees...if its that I think we should judge. I am sorry you feel like you got exploited and offended over the video... sucks to feel that way and no one should.

Welcome to the fold Sir. *hugs you* If you liked Just a Geek you need...NEED... to read/listen Happiest Days of Our Lives. You are going to get so frikken nostalgic reading/listening to it. I suggest ya listen to it. Reading it rocks... but Wil reads his own stuff so its all the much cooler because you can actually hear the emotion in his voice when he was going through whatever he was writing about. Just a suggestion.

"wilw FTR: I was told it was a video featuring geeks like us, not Shaq and Ashton Kutcher. I'm annoyed and embarrassed to be associated with them." Brother, you know whats a little sad about it... Shaq is actually a geek. The man has a superman tattoo ffs. And Ashton well.. ok. You got me there. Im not sure if that guy qualifies... but hes sleeping next to Demi Moore so that has to count for something. Man you need to review Star Trek ive been waiting since you saw it.

Man... isn't everything you end of learning a "yeah, duh" later on? Dont know about you but anything thats been worth learning has always been something that after you learn it you look at it and think "why the freaking hell did I not figure this out before?!?" for me. Or something yer parents told you and you didnt want to believe because we knew better...we so didnt.

Voice reg, you have to sing the right words at the right time. It picks that up and scores accordingly... so dont try speaking lines from Wizard of Oz when singing Dark Side of the Moon because it doesnt work.

"I can defile the lovely picture with my filthy signature, if you want. Please note that some actors will charge you to sign the picture that you've already coughed up money to take. I am not one of them, because that is also lame." That is way cool of you sir. "Wil Wheaton - Life Beyond Wesley [::facepalm::] " Sorry man...the facepalm made me laugh :P The title is a sick little ploy on their part, but the facepalm made me laugh...you sick little facepalm. Rock Band?!? Rock Band?!? Why arent you playing WoW with the rest of us losers...see..they need to set up workstations with WoW and allow you to party with people on several quests so they can screenshot the text, print it for a fee, then have you sign it... ok if someone from the con is reading this and they get the idea to do that. PaTeNT PeNDiNG byatch! PS: I love rock band :P Wife and I play it all the time, so Z, dont call me Lando for asking Rock Band twice.
