Fantastic first ep! Love seeing Fargo so in control while under pressure. Once again you have left me...anxiously waiting for next week.

Love the filk song! Reminds me of this guy I gamed with back in high school. The guy we picked up and stuffed, butt first, into one of those big galvanized tin trash cans that stand around high school halls.

So glad you had the more-conversation-than-interview interview with Felicia Day on this show. Without her tip about censorship I would have blithely gone on watching The Guild via Xbox. I [bleep] hate it when [bleep] broadcasters [bleep] bleep what people say!!! Like Frank Zappa once said, it's my language and I should be able to use any word in it that I feel expresses my meaning. Thank you. I'll get off my soap box now. Great interview, by the way.

It is never wasted time appreciating the peace and serenity of the world around you. It is only wasted time driving half and hour all the way home to retrieve your character sheets that you must have left on your kitchen table and forgotten to put in your game bag before leaving for your friends house, only to discover, upon arriving home, that they were in the back seat of the car the whole time. Arrrr.

Dude! Thanks for the trip down C64 memory lane. I kept watching all the related commercials that went along with your linked one. Y'know, my mom still has ours packed away in her closet somewhere. Tape drive and all. I'll bet if I look real hard I may even find some of our old "Load * Magazine" disks. Ahh... the days when it was all one little dot running around after another little dot...

...the salute. Thus making us all look a little geekier to the rest of the world. And yet a little cooler to each other. A win/win. (Besides, of course, the whole sanitary thing.)

Regale us, please, with more of your tale of Dungeon Delving and let me live vicariously thru your brave and stalwart adventurers! You're a great storyteller, Wil. And it's been too long since I've campaigned. My ears burn to hear the rest of the session. (I, too, am more the roleplayer than the number cruncher.)

Hey Wil, I get DS elbow. After about and hour or so, regardless of what I'm playing, my elbows hurt like mad! It's from having to hold the thing at a certain distance from my face in order to see the screen clearly. My boyfriend's elbows only take 45 minutes to seize up. It's a DS thing, not and eyesight thing.

Dude, I'm totally with you. I lived for 34 yrs. in South Florida and after spending almost my whole life watching the coast of Africa during the summer in case a tropical depression formed that might turn into a hurricane on it's way across the Atlantic that might hit where I live and tear my roof off or knock a ficus tree onto my car or kill me, piddily little West Coast rain storms (like we get here in the Seattle area where I now live) are laughable. Everyone in Florida is an amateur meteorologist because our lives depend on it, and because of how often the news meteorologists explain barometric pressure and wind current and the "cone of error" when predicting if the weather will try to kill us or some other city. All I gotta say is that here, at least in the Great Pacific Northwest, no matter how hard it rains (which isn't very, comparatively)the rain is always so polite. It always fall STRAIGHT DOWN. In Florida the rain falls sideways and tries to get into your door and under your umbrella. (BTW, Hurricane Wilma was the last straw that drove me out of "paradise". Not to mention 6 hurricanes in 3 years hitting S. FLA.)

"Crack:the Addiction" is what my friends and I called it back in the '90s. And no joke. My (now ex-)husband and I spent rent money, bills money sometimes even food money on cards. By the time Ice Age came out we were pre-ordering the booster sets by the wax pack from our local comic shops. Now you gotta understand, no one in my family has ANY addictions, but I was fair and square caught up in this gambling-like addiction (but I'm not a gambler in the real world). It actually took getting divorced to break me of the addiction. I let him have all the cards. Even all the rare cards we had. For years I couldn't even look at a Magic card without my palms itching. Will, reading about your deck building makes me remember some of my favorite decks. Like my "Rat" deck with Plague Rats and Bog Rats. Or my "Plinker" deck filled with cards like Prodigal Sorcerer or Thallids that "plink" at your opponent one point at time slowly annoying them into fits of screaming madness. Deck building was a full time hobby for when we weren't actually playing. We had 6 fat 3-ring binders full of cards in card-collecting pocket pages. One binder for each magic color and one for the artifacts. Then we had five boxes, one for each color, of mana cards. And we allowed each of us to have 4 duplicates of each card so we would never have to tear apart a beloved deck to make a new one. As I type this, my boyfriend is playing the demo of the Magic game you, Will, shall be playing this weekend. He's only ever played the old PS1 game. Never actually played the cards, only ever lurked around the table when friends were playing. I'm having difficulty keeping my mind on typing. And now he's turned it off because he says he's being sucked in and we can't afford to by the full version yet. Star Trek 11 comes out on Tues. Assassins Creed 2 after that. But after that...hmmm Anyway, thank you for stirring up some wonderful memories. And damn you for making me miss my Magic decks. I wish you luck, tho. Have fun.

I always thought what I had was dyslexia, even tho I can see words just fine. The mix up happens when I write. Your describing of your dysgraphia sounds somewhat similar to what happens to me. Ya got me thinking, Will. I'm going to do some research on dysgraphia. Maybe that's really what's wrong with me. Thanks! And Happy Anniversary!!

Thank you for posting this. Whets my whistle for the Blu-ray(my player just arrived from Amazon, purchased because of Star Trek). As a Trekker since birth, I can think of no one better suited to carry on from Leonard. Live long and prosper in the role, ZQ.
