Funny thing is, we feel exactly the same way you do, Wil! I can barely remember now the reason why John and I had traded some communication or another, because everything is a blur before I made an inane offhand comment about how cool it would be if we could run DT on GD one in a while, and John not only said yes, but was overwhelmingly enthusiastic about it. After chatting with him a few times in the run up to this announcement, it's only become more and more clear that not only is John Grade A Prime geek, but he's also a totally doting dad. We are so happy he's becoming part of the GeekDad Family (or are we becoming part of the Dork Tower family?). This is so totally FTW!

Wil Wheaton is credited with the definition that geeks are just self-aware nerds. At the root, it's about being passionate about a subject, sometimes to the detriment of your general social standing. But these days being a geek has been recognized for the virtue it really is. Gaming is always good. Books. Comics. Music. Heck, anything can be approached from a geek sensibility! -Ken Denmead, editor GeekDad.com

Hey Wil! Ken from GeekDad here. First, nice job on a great episode! [Spoilers below!] One question, and one comment. Are you starting to get a little worried about being typecast as the geeky/nerdy killer types? Of course, you do it so well... And it just struck me at the very end, when "Chaos" gets his comeuppance and is standing dumbfounded at the airport, the perfect inside-geek thing (which the show is good at doing) would have been for him to exclaim "merde!" Anyways, well done! I expect to see you on Psych, Eureka, and the rest of my favorite shows soon! Cheers!

I think I'm going to take Wil's best interaction-with-his-software vignettes, and visualize them. In LEGOs.

A work of pure, unadulterated, genius. So say we all.

Thanks for saying that about Spirited Away, Wil. I love that movie. It makes me want to go to the Japanese countryside, not because I think I'll see spirits, but because I'll feel, just a little bit, the same way I feel when I watch that movie.

Very much cool. And, if you like that kind of thing... http://www.cafepress.com/sbphoenix.119340801 Hopefully folks won't consider this blatant self-promotion/marketing. I've actually had the t-shirt design up for quite a while without blogwhoring myself, and I'm proud of it, but since this post was specifically about t-shirts, I figured I had to plug it. Enjoy!

Saw it with the family this weekend, and let me tell you, it went over great with the 7 to 11-year old set. On the down side: I think the place where it can be compared to Batman and Robin is in the too-many-villains department. The Goblin arc and the Venom arc were the most important to the Peter Parker character development, so that stuffing Sandman in there just so the odds were really stacked against Spidey at the end felt like just too much. It made sure that all three villains, each played quite well by their actors, all got short shrift. On the up side: All the classic Raimi touches. Bruce Campbell ("I am French!"). Tobey with Hitler hair. Overall: I liked it just fine.

If, for whatever earthshattering reason, I ever had to pare down my comic book collection to just a few sets, all that would be left would be Top Ten (and Planetary). The attention to detail, and all the little visual jokes all through the books, are amazing. Look out for the mirror universe ST:TOS crew in Grand Central Station.

Mwahahahaha! I love it! You should include this as part of your show-reel (if you have such a thing), so you can start picking up some angst-ridden psycho-killer roles.
