*stands and applauds wildly* The looks on the faces of Patrick Stewart and Johnny Frakes are priceless....Stewart is looking at you like a proud grandfather, and Frakes has a look I'm not sure how to interpret, but if I were looking at someone that way, I'd be thinking(admiringly), "Geez, this guy has a humongous of nads." Good for you, Mr. Wheaton. *Stands and applauds wildly again*

I don't know what makes me more sad-the fact that people, even one person, would want to see this guy perform ever again(regardless of any real or imagined rehabilitation), or that people, even one person, would attack you for reminding them why they shouldn't.

Wil, If you struggled to write that piece, it doesn't show when I read the piece, and it REALLY doesn't show when YOU read the piece. Nice blog

I don't play video games-rpg or otherwise, I don't play poker, can't stand hockey, am not married, nor have I dated in ten years, I don't watch television or read comic books.. why the hell do I love your writing so much? Nice one, Wil, and BTW the John Lennon version of "Stand By Me" just started playing on Beatles.radio. Very groovy

Due to my easily distracted brain, I arrived at w00tstock in Seattle quite late. Since I had not a clue whom the other performers were, I asked if I would still be able to see Wil Wheaton perform. The guy in the booth said that you were "sorta like the MC". That was good enough for me. I plunked down the cost of the ticket, and the guy says, "oh, here's a nice seat that just opened up." We thank each other, and as I turn to enter the theater he adds, "Nice shirt, by the way." I had owned the shirt I was wearing for little more than 24 hours, and it had been complimented at least a half dozen times. Bright yellow with fire engine red polka dots, the short sleeve dress shirt was so stunning it was overshadowing my lime green suit coat. I handed the guy at the door my ticket-stifling an urge to say something about going to watch the geek-and he says I need to let the other guy direct me to my seat. Fine by me-I don't see well in the dark. As I followed the usher in, I could see you were on stage, and by the time I got to my seat I recognized the story you were reading as one of my favorites. I was immediately so focused on your performance that I didn't realize till the intermission how close I was to the stage. I was getting ready to be bummed out that I had arrived so late, but the 2nd half of your reading was worth the admission price. Your readings have become more polished without losing any of their sincerity. The rest of the show was great as well-I wonder what you thought of the folk singer who did the song about Wesley. Thanks Wil-next time I'll be on time

As I read this blog I felt my fingers and toes crossing....I hope you and Johnny won't make me keep them this way for too long.

Wil, my 2 cents(which by the way cost the U.S. treasury 3.2 cents to make) goes like this...The fact that you are a celebrity is not the reason I continued to read your blog after I got past the ohmyghod it Wesley's blog thing. The reason I read your blog is that you tell what we'll call-for lack of a better term-"reality stories," really well. It's like, "Just the facts Ma'am", but with adjectives. And heart, wisdom, humour, insecurity, humility, confidence...and I think most of all, sincerity. *on a side note* I sometimes wondered if you were one of those too sincere Hollywood types till our brief meeting and PAX in 2007. (Your keynote adress was...um...awesome, and I'm not even a gamer or computer game player.) While I was waiting in line at your booth I watched you interact with the people who had come to buy your books and have them signed and have their picture taken with you.It was obvious at that point that the sincerity in your writing was not an affectation. I'm borderlining on hyperbole here, but I truly don't think I'm ever seen a more overtly compassionate caring, and gentle countenance on a human in my life. ** The things you write about, the way your write about your family, your career, your friends, your peers in the entertainment industry...and the way your write about yourself... it's all so damn real. There's not enough radical honesty in any of our worlds, and when we do experience radical honesty the experience is too often unpleasant. Your blog is radically honest, and while that honesty demands that there will be dissapointments in the stories you tell from time to time I don't think reading has ever been unpleasant :) And you do the disclaimers so well;) Like so many "geeky" or "quirky" creative types, you have this thing about making sure you are not misunderstood-I think the need to be understood comes in many of us from decades of being misunderstood. Enough of my blatherings...just keep being real Wil
