Great post. I wonder if you've heard of Lenore Skenazy and her "Free Range Kids"? She calls the constant worriers "helicopter parents" because they hover over their kids constantly. She wrote a book about it - here's an Amazon link . which started from a column she wrote about letting her 10-year old son ride the subway.

As opposed to "damn, damn, Evil Wheaton" as the recursive (or is it recursed) Wheaton?

That was fun. If you want to see another awesome version, check out the Blue Man Group's version in their show "How To Be A Megastar 2.0". I'm sure it's on YouTube somewhere but really it's awesome to go see the whole show - it was one of the best concerts I went to last year.

Whenever someone talks about cloning themself, I feel bound to remind them to re-read the Calvin & Hobbes story arc where Calvin clones himself with the transmogrifier.... I'm not going to post the link - people rip off Bill Watterson's amazing work all the time, and no matter what you feel about copyright there's no reason to annoy the guy.

Hey if Shatner shows up (he is an "author" according to the books) see if you can get him and Henry to rock "I Can't Get Behind That" from Shatner's CD.

You and Anne can do this sort of thing because you have 'Radar Love'! P.S. for another funny about songs, check out the hilarious way to defeat the Borg beginning here: http://www.sheldoncomics.com/archive/090312.html

Has anyone hacked the game to at least add new scenery? For example, cruisin' past Gil Grissom and Walter (in blue sweater) as you arrive in Las Vegas, or going past some famous gunslinger as you leave Tuscon?

Star Raiders, and Star Raiders II, were two of the only computer games I ever really enjoyed (no judgement, somehow they never "click" with me - perhaps because all I can think about is how they're programmed). I think they'd make a great retro Nintendo DS cartridge, but no one at Atari/Infogrames or whoever owns it now seems interested in a reissue. If you know anyone in the game development biz, maybe they can talk some sense into them.

Wil - I don't know if you'll ever be in a series regularly again, but the work you do (Walter on CSI, Floyd on Criminal Minds) is great. Maybe you're going to be a Charles Lane or William Schallert - someone who acts throughout a long life, but always doing different stuff.

Wil! It was a storefront! Were they not for sale? When my wife (who of course is as awesome as Anne, but from my perspective, not yours) and I travel, and something like that shows up, it almost always travels home with us.

As long as we're posting halloween-related stuff, here's a cool one related to "Day of the Dead" (All Saint's Day, the day after Halloween, celebrated mostly in Latino countries) http://www.vivacalaca.com (tried putting anchor tags around it but I guess they're filtered out) Anyway, the animation and music are both cool.

Creative Commons used to have their own directories of music and they had a heck of a lot of ambient stuff (I have a great ambient version of Ellington's "Caravan" from that source by Binary Beats, album Adventures in Ambient) but they've restructured and I can't find those pages. CCMixter seems to have a lot

Had a series of them - 400, 800, 130XE.. Yeah we typed in a heck of a lot of programs, too, but I want to take this opportunity to ask if anyone else enjoyed Star Raiders/Star Raiders II as much as I did, and if you don't think the pair would make a totally awesome DS cartridge?

Monday's is _about_ metahumor, so wouldn't that be metametahumor? "Wil apparently never met a metametahumor he didn't like" would then be a metametametahumor Recurse me at will, Wil.

Hey - hope whatever it is works out; however here's an idea: You know how web comics folks do "guest strips" for each other? Maybe you could find someone to do a "guest geek week" for you!
