I was in the audience in SEA. Also noted the painted sign on the back of the Moore and took a photo. :) My group traveled from MSN (me); ATL (my bff & her boyfriend); and DFW (my bff's sister). We were in the second row balcony. Great seats for an even greater show. The whole thing rocked - from the first moment that Ceiling Cat took the stage until the last moment when you all took the final bow. Thank you for doing what you do and for making us nerds feel like the coolest people on earth. xoxo

Can't wait to see you guys in Seattle! Our little group is converging on you from Madison, WI, Atlanta, GA, and Dallas, TX. The only thing missing is Jonathan Coulton but MC Frontalot is a damn fine substitute. Get ready to sign some boobs, Wheaton! Or at least the t-shirt that covers my boobs. :) See you tomorrow night.

Personally, the video made me feel like geek-culture was being co-opted by focusing too heavily on the social media/marketing/trendy version of geek culture. "Just because you use Twitter, doesn't make you a geek" is the best summary yet. Being a geek is about NOT being the popular kid and suffering the consequences of such.

Okay....I have a strict "no costume" policy but, for this, I'd make an exception.

@wilw - great news! Congratulations and I too will be purchasing one week from today once the direct deposit is cleared. @cyeagerLMT - your post could have been mine... Just received my Dr Horrible DVDs (thus putting me in "happy dance" mode) and also live in Central Time. However, since WOOT.com is Central Time all the time, I'm content to allow @wilw to shower his affection on the Pacific time zone.

The thing I find most interesting is how blown-out-of-proportion a simple tweet can become. Seriously... I read the tweet and your subsequent blog post and walked away with a clear understanding that two acquaintances were sort of "talking" about how it would be cool if you could cameo. That means nothing more than "one guy is going to talk to another guy and, damn, it would be really fun if something came of it". No promises, no guarantees... How does this end up with a Tim Kring quote in the Chicago Trib? My head is spinning. All that said, I'll watch anything you're in Wil (as long as you stop playing the uber-creepy serial killers). Also, I agree that you should be on Chuck. Can we make this a gigantic internet rumor now?? <3 PS - I want to marry ToddPM

I immediately assumed "farting a rainbow" when I saw the picture. This was prior to actually reading the post. Besides, "farting a rainbow" is so much less twee than "riding a rainbow".

Frustration = working on a comment, trying to be all witty and shit, and then losing the comment to an internal server error. argh.

Because of (in spite of??) the fact that there are so many options, my reading goes in spurts. I'm a binge-reader. That being said, I think that books have to be "better" these days - in order to compete. "Better" is relative, of course. I've noticed a trend in authors to write as though the reader is watching t.v. Does that make sense?? So...the book is certainly EASIER to read but not, in a literal sense, better writing. Okay...I'm done now.

High-larious. And I'm of a certain "older" age. (Man, I hate to admit that...)

Nice artwork! I like how it captured all elements of the post - the cat; the ascot; the pipe; Wil's awesome beard. Oh wait...the awesome beard might have been from a different post. Anyway...I love it and, of course, love the inspiration for it. That particular post was especially fun.
