This kind of thing is why I prefer any of the three lesser packed cons in the Los Angeles area. SDCC is a zoo.

Wil, i'm moving to L.A from Tucson sometime in the next few weeks (just waiting on tax refund), I am so going to try to catch this! Stories and such a la Memories of the Future would be super rad.

If only there were better alternatives. Ning is going to start charging to maintain networks, Myspace sucks now....I keep hearing about Diaspora, but the promo 'interviewy' video those kids released was so laughably horrible that I can't even take it seriously at this point.

You know, I never gave Eureka a chance before. Every time I saw a commercial on Sci-Fi (I refuse to use their new name), I felt completely underwhelmed by the concept. I should probably give it a shot, but at least judging by the commercials, it doesn't seem memorable or endearing at all. Your character sounds really cool though, so now I'm motivated to give Eureka a shot.

I nearly felt the need to correct you in the second paragraph, but I felt compelled to google it and now I get the reference http://www.flickr.com/photos/montine/2503395480/ I'm sure it will turn out awesome

Wil you're too awesome to fail. Wish I could be there, but I'm sure I'll catch sight of you at the Phoenix Comic-Con.

For all the bitching people do about Twitter, it has had a huge impact on our culture in the past few years. It certainly has been a huge impact on my unfolding career as a web designer, with the ability to connect with other designers, many of whom are at the pinnacle of the industry. It's added a huge boost to my professional development My knowledge of you would have been stuck in the obscure reaches of my memory as the kid from Stand By Me and Star Trek TNG (which I didn't like as a kid, but LOVE now), had I not seen someone mention you, clicked follow and realized what a witty and cool guy you are.

"Got a hankerin' for a hunk 'o cheese". *sigh*. Good times.

Ahhh good times. Akira was my intro to anime. I watched the Sci-Fi(and screw them for changing their name) channel's Saturday Anime program religiously in the early 90s, and I remember watching Robotech at my friend's house. It's a pretty varied genre, but watching it un-dubbed/subbed is something that never occurred to me, I mean I still feel like I was able to appreciate the animation and the action, but maybe you're onto something Wil. I think i'll give it a try. Also, I happened to notice you mis-spelled Akira in your reddit reply. -10 points.

It just makes me think of the roaming gnome.

Loved hearing you recall this in RFB Wil. When my family got together for a combined thanksgiving and christmas this year, we just did stockings. Nothing big and special.

The sunsets and mountains here in Tucson make it look like Mordor sometimes too. And to cap it off, there's a really kickin' frozen yogurt place down the street now.

Great idea Wil! Now I want to check those authors out

I am officially motivated. My friend and I have tossed around the idea of building a site for Reviews and News for Movies, Video Game, Comics, and other Geek Stuff. I don't think it even really matters right now to me that there are a bunch of other sites that do the same thing. Everything that's already is compartmentalized, whereas we want to combine everything in one place.
