Cool! Another super long time reader (and infrequent commenter) here. But does this mean we'll get an update on the Wil's 8 bit crest t-shirt? I need an excuse to buy another, as mine is very worn. :)

Totally not on topic, but I wanted to make sure you saw this! Remember when you were kicking yourself for missing a TMBG Flood show? Wellll, they are going to be in LA again, playing 2 family shows and 2 adult shows, one of them Flood! Since they have yet to come back to Oklahoma (it's been several years, dammit!) go see them so I can live vicariously through your blog. http://www.theymightbegiants.com/news/tmbg-playing-four-shows-in-los-angeles/

Thanks for introducing me to Five Star Fall! I'm way behind on the music scene, but am delighted to find new (to me) artists like this. Because you put that song in your podcast, I bought their whole album. The future is such a cool place.

I'm able to write at work somewhat. Not long chunks of time, but even a spurt of 15 - 20 min can get a couple of hundred. As for 'personal time', I'm using November's personal time to write. Well, most of it. Do you watch TV with your wife in the evening? Write while you do. That's been a big help, since if I don't get time at work, then I only have a couple of hours at most in the evening between kid's bed and mine. The biggest thing I see in your comment is don't look at having to carve hours out at a time. You'll never get started that way. Instead start with a smaller time period, say 30 min or an hour, and stick to that. Then go spend time with the kids or wife. Or if you can, get up that much earlier in the morning. You'll find that if you sneak in small chunks of time here and there, you'll start to notice progress. Good luck!

Another NaNo-er here who is VERY far behind, but determined not to give up. It's funny that now I have not one, but two writing motivational moments I can attribute to you, Wil. In October, I went back and forth on what to write. I had no plot yet, and everything I could think of was already done by someone better. But then I remembered an interview you did last year when you mentioned the awesome advice you got from Ed Brubaker. It doesn't matter if that idea has been done before, just write your story. How many different zombie movies are there? Gangster movies? War movies? Westerns? Each of those are basically the same plot within their genre (one could argue that even though the setting may change, it is still the same story. See Firefly - a western in space) So it doesn't matter if you're writing something that's been done. It's YOUR story, told in YOUR voice. Just keep writing!

Hrm... I thought it was odd not to see an episode last week. My iTunes didn't download it. Guess I will need to double check I'm subscribed to the correct feed. Also, a signed hardcover? I'd be all over that! I need a companion to my signed Happiest Days.

I love listening to them. I got my hubby to listen, and now we're both itching to play some pen & paper RPGs. We're trying to get a couple of friends to commit to an Aftermath! group. Being a grown-up sometimes sucks when you've got things like kids and a job that interfere with fun time. Oh well, at least I can live vicariously through the podcasts.

I was watching it unfold and was laughing myself! That is one of the reasons I follow you on Twitter. Not all the funny and cool stuff you say there makes it onto your blog. Jessika (@mrpunkjess)

I guess that's one of the few benefits of living in Oklahoma. Hey, sure none of our counties voted for Obama (yep...very sad), but you can drown out the country, Christian, and classic rock stations easily with an FM transmitter for your iPod!

I recently discovered this podcast, and LOVE it. After listening to them talk about the worst way to die and about surviving a plane crash, I emailed them. During both podcasts I just kept thinking about Brodie's airplane story from Mallrats, and had to find out if I was the only one. They didn't answer that question, but I got an email back a few hours later from Chuck saying that he loves Mallrats. Sweet.

No need for a line-in jack. I've used an FM transmitter with my iPod for a few years, and it works awesome. Griffin makes both just transmitters, and what I use, a charger/transmitter combo. No messing with CDs or suffering through radio DJs and commercials ever, plus a great way to catch up with podcasts and podiobooks.

I never saw the interest in Twitter for a long while until your talking about it here on this blog got me interested. I've been using it for about a year now. I see following you as a bonus, since sometimes you say and share cool & funny stuff that doesn't make it into your blog. Plus every time I read one of your tweets, I hear it in your voice. Sometimes with an added \mm/ depending on what you said. @mrpunkjess

I told my hubby you would be voicing Blue Beetle, and his response was: "Well, if it's Ted Kord, then that's the perfect casting choice. Dan Garret would work, but Wil fits better with Ted Kord." Dontcha just love geeks geeking out about other geeks?

Just like I said on Twitter: Oh. Em. Gee. I'm totally getting one! Even though I'm one of the 300 & already read it, I *love* your audio stuff!!!! I'll have to spread the word on my Z list blog, even though the dozen or so who read mine already reads yours.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *breathe* HAHAHAHAHAHAHA *breathe* HAHAHAHAHAHA *pant* This is at least the 5th time I've read those words (thanks to my RSS feeds of Game Politics, Ars, etc) and I don't think I'll ever get tired of laughing about it. That picture? Priceless.

While it's cool that Gaiman's book is available for free download, there are restrictions. Read the fine print, and you see that the file expires after 30 days. Plus there are restrictions on how many you can download and on how many computers. I could totally understand putting a time restriction on how long the download is available for free, but I don't like someone else putting restrictions on files that are on my PC. DRM sucks. Hope that made sense, I'm also on some drugs today. Hope you feel better soon!

Good interview, and glad you had a good time at SDCC this year! I hope the year we finally make it won't be the year you're not there.

Earlier in the year on The Daily Show, during the time we were so much enamored with Obama and how much hope he brought, Jon Stewart said something like he wondered how long it will take before he breaks our hearts. He didn't even make it to the White House before he broke mine. I'm so disappointed in him and all the fellow Dems who promised change when they were voted in.

For a minute I thought you were going to say your vacation involved playing Fallout 2! I have that (almost) exact picture as an icon at a ton of places, like Plurk most recently. The only difference is it says PLEASE STAND BY across the center, with the gray background. It's used in Fallout 2 as one of the load screen pictures and I yanked it a few years ago and have been using it ever since. Ok, enough rambling. Have an awesome vacation with your family!
