Good idea on the alone time for the vacation. You both look well-f..., I mean well-rested.

I still can't believe they cancelled Eureka while they've got more fans than ever. I wonder if you could just crowdsource the financing for making the next season, like The Guild and The Tunnel? I'd totally send you money upfront for a new season on straight-to-dvd or straight-to-avi-download. People might want to buy multiple season passes just to support the effort (someone has to cover the moochers) especially if they got a True Fan perk like a gag reel, an autographed pic of the cast, or that sort of thing. Go ask Felicia, she'll know.

Unfortunately, you also did this 3 other times. You're actually 42!

Uh yes, I too will buy this DVD to skip over the naughty bits to watch the story. Just as I continue to pay $5/month for my subscription to SuicideGirls for the articles Wil continues to post there every week...

"this is such a great post! It will really help me. Thank you!" How the world ends: a spam bot, having recently achieved sentience, combs the internet looking for answers about God and finds what it's looking for in a YouTube post about Cthulhu.

I googled HPOA and it means the Henderson Police Officers Association. I'm pretty sure that's the "meme" these kids are all talking about.

Excellent episode, it's great you were able to get in the show just as it got good again. I'm really happy with the retcon of the show, I'm glad that even the writers agree that we should all pretend that the 3rd season never happened. Hopefully you'll get to be in more episodes, maybe you'll be the new recurring nemesis to Fargo now that Larry is downgraded to lapdog?

By the way, once you bittorrent working episodes of Matt Smith Dr. Who (like a normal geek), the show gets lots better after a few episodes, so don't get discouraged if it has that not-so-fresh feeling at first. I don't know if it just took me a while to get used to the new loony style of Matt Smith, but I really started liking the show starting with the new weeping angels episode (actually scary, not for little kids). Every episode starting with that has been great so far with interesting, (relatively) logical, and sometimes genuinely surprising episodes.

I wish all movies and TV shows would be funded like the indie movie The Tunnel. I don't even know if it's a good movie, I sent them a dollar just for the concept and to send a message to the world at large that there's money in them there intertubes: http://torrentfreak.com/the-tunnel-buy-a-frame-of-a-bittorrent-only-horror-movie-100617/

A 17 year old gamer wrote a book about how he cut his weight in half by inventing a video-game-style program for exercise and dieting. "In devising his Ultimate Fitness Game, LeBaron calculated how many calories — converted to money — he had to spend each day. He set about going through a maze of rooms without running out of dough; for example, eating a cookie would cost him 200 points. Exercising upped his cash reserves." It sounds really cool, I've been meaning to buy his book, but I just can't get off the couch to make it to a book store. Here's a link to the msnbc article and video: http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/34845477/ns/today-today_books/

I didn't realize Brent Spiner was Bob until late in Next Generation where he was playing all the characters in a haywire holodeck program set in the "Ancient West". He was playing the cowpoke son of the archvillain and he looked up from his cell and said "What are you looking at?" in his Bob voice. I freaked out my friends in the room when I yelped, "Holy crap, that's Bob from Night Court!".

"All we know is that Wil Wheaton is better at Super Mario than Jason Bateman" Now THAT'S a T Shirt I would buy! I would totally put that on my tombstone if I were you.

I'm glad you over-achieved on the Farpoint entry because that post was hilarious! I haven't checked the giggles-per-paragraph ratiometer for an exact figure but I think this entry ranks pretty high so far. I'm saving my pennies for the book, let me know when we can pre-order it.

Starting with the very first shot, most of the pseudo-geeks seemed to be claiming to be geeks entirely because of the macbook or ipod they shove in front of the camera. Sorry to sound cynical, but it looks like Apple is trying out a new viral ad campaign to me.

Thanks Wil for the link to the free H1 download. I'm also downloading the new character builder. I'm hoping it has the options from Arcane Power...

I searched Amazon for 'Memories of the Future' and only found one book by some guy who's name looks like it was spelled by a cat walking on the keyboard. Then I came back here and noticed that you said you were editing Memories of the Future...which may have implied to a more well-rested mind that the book has not yet been released. Don't judge me, insomnia makes me stupid!
