Hi Wil, You are lucky for many reasons! My best friend Denny Joseph Hoff is lucky to be alive after falling from the grandville bridge in Vancouver on Wed night after the hockey celebrations. He has a broken neck, back, pelvis, collarbone, fractured skull, head trauma and a damaged liver from the fall. He is a wonderful man and I need him to be ok! Please say some prayers for his recovery as he may have to go into surgery soon. Thank you very much and i wish your family well! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Thoughts-Prayers-and-Well-Wishes-for-Denny/189023031149863

Hey Wil, welcome back to Canada! I do not know if the information in this video is correct or not, but just to be safe PLEASE TAKE SOME KELP EXTRACT which is a natural source of iodine, to protect your self from radiation poisoning and stock up on some for your family! There is nuclear fallout in the air and rain that has crossed over the ocean from Japan to the west coast of North America and I doubt that the governments are being honest about the levels of radiation. Please take care of your health! You are a very valuable person in this world. Peace and Love. VictoriA http://vimeo.com/22003021

It's funny because my boyfriend Dean Davey and I were browsing the endless racks of discount movies at Zellers a few weeks ago. After getting dizzy and all headache-y we finally reached the blue ray section. He whipped around the corner nearly at light speed and exclaimed in a joyous tone and wide eyes "LOOK, MEGA SHARK VS GIANT OCTOPUS!". I laughed and said "That's the movie Wil was so excited about finding." He bought it of course, being only $6.99 in Canada, for a BLUE RAY! We finally got a chance to watch it recently and laughed mostly. What made it fun was when we reenacted the big battle in an epic half hour wrestling/biting match! I was the Octopus and he was the Shark. I won of course but got dragged down to the bottom. Luckily my tentacles magically grew back! HA HA Now I can't stop using my limbs to trap him as he tries to walk by, which results in more wrestling and biting, probably because we are both actors, in need of expressing ourselves. Playtime is fun but watching movies like this really makes me think, why are we not just making our own movies, as I am sure we could do better than some of the stuff that gets funding out there. May I recommend a brilliant film that I absolutely LOVE that we watched again recently? PONTYPOOL directed by Bruce McDonald. It is the most highly intelligent, well done, clever, meaningful low budget zombie thriller ever. It's commentary on relationships is dead on and tackles a new level of awareness, while being simply entertaining to watch. It's in my top 10 favorites of all time, and I love movies! By the way Wil, thanks for sharing. Thanks for sharing your life with us. It's important to your readers, and the world. Have a great week!

Wil gathers the Blue Crew to send a telepathic message to Smurfette, "We're dreaming of a Smurfette Christmas, just like the one we used to know, We miss you girl! We are waiting at the bottom of the escalator for you because we can't make it to the top without you! Indigo Bros Unite!"

There are 2 types of geeks in the world. Those who accept being a geek and like to live in their imagination places(like games and movies and tv and books) because they think that is much cooler than creating something into reality themselves, and ones like Niall and myself who choose to spend our time and energy into creating new things that can change the world and make the people around us dance in joy. Those geeks who use their own intelligence to invent things and become cooler than cool, and create music that is powerful, putting their time and energy to entertain on a daily basis, they get rewarded, and they get laid! There is nothing better than banging on a drum or jammin on any instrument with others in the creation of invisable emotional movemment, not in cyber space, but in real space, where you can feel it flowing between people in the air. The difference between these two types of geeks is simply: CONFIDENCE. If you don't have the courage to go out and be hero or a villian, race cars, or shoot guns....then of course you will be satisfied with doing it in a virtual world that you can control, where there is no real danger. I guess it boils down to intraverted and extraverted. Rock band makes real musicians cringe! It's so easy to play an instrument if you aren't afraid and just let it flow, and it is so rewarding to jam with others and actually create your own beautiful works of art, that we can not understand why all these people choose to fake it, and then be impressed with themselves for not having accomplished anything or gained any new skill, and the joy disapears when you pull the plug out of the wall. SO sad. Never too late to challenge yourself for real though! OH Wil, how do like Vancouver? Better than L.A.? I suggest you move there. Take a walk around Stanley Park? on the beaches? Find a way, become a Canadian, eh? There is lots of opportunity for work, get on regular series! Canada is Best, and we could use your talent and ideas up here! No more L.A. traffic and the public will respect you and your privacy. Besides it's just a matter of time before L.A. slides under water...look at all the natural disasters in the world now. Free healthcare and healthy food! Oh,There is a healthy grocery store on Davie st and Richards st CHOICES I think it is called. They have lots of organic produce, vegetarian, glutin free baking. I recommend it, and shop there when I visit, for the best quality food. Have fun in Vancouver Wil! Explore until you don't want to leave. Then your joy will manifest you a permanent job and you won't have to!

ok, that photo is just wrong! I know it is a parody of romance novels but please, why is everyone trying to put fake muscles on you Wil? It's like the same as retouching womans photos to look thinner. I find it insulting. When I was teenager I would rewind your movies over and over just to get a good look at your actual sexy arms, the way you twisted your wrists, and flicked your hair. Your real arms are one of the biggest turn ons, besides your neck, your innocence and mischief, all knowing eyes, and excited smile. Being sexy is a whole package deal, so when you alter yourself for others(who won't love the rest of you anyway), you lose appeal to those who appreciate the full beauty you were born. I vote that a fantasy romance can be fantastic with realistic people who are confident in their own natural attractiveness. It's the confident gaze thrust upon Codex, that is enough of a sword to pierce her armour. I know I certainly don't need or want some big man capable of crushing me with his huge muscles. A loving embrace is good enough, a gentle touch can mean so much. I don't live in a time when I need physical protection from a man. Mental stimulation, common goals, and shared amusement is so much more valuable these days, so those are the things that become turn ons. I guess the women who read romance novels are the type who are not assertive and dream of being swept up under masculine control. Other women prefer to do the taking, of the sweet and innocent boys. No matter what type, be proud, be sexy, be you!

sweet!! "to tie the current way we play into our, uh, roots..." in my mind translates to sexuality in terms of what happened to us as children forming our roots, then creates the way we "play" as adults, and since sexuality is the main thing that controls our social identity...children are fU#k'd and will forever repeat the patterns of abuse unto themselves. "I just missed it when we were developing the Artwork" -true true this is the key, the only key to release people...is to put their pain into creating beautiful art! I work with inner city youth doing community drama and arts. Through creatng we spit it out of ourselves turn it into something good in the outside world, then we receive the love and appreciation we need from that art, and all is good as we learn to love ourselves again, in order to create the best life possible! See I don't have a clue what your talking about when it comes to D 7D and such as, since interacting with people is more important than playing video games to me, so I can only interpret what you say in my focused language of Behaviour Psychology and adult sexual functioning regarding early childhood experiences. In your case Wil, You didn't get enough love and attention as a child, so you were stuck in front of the video games most of the time. Being a star you were isolated from your peer groups as well. Luckily you had tons of annonamous love sent to you by your friends and fans, for you your artwork during that time! NOw you find yourself sitting in the house and playing video games while your wife goes to bed alone. You are living the same life that you did as a child and you are feeling old because of it. You are creating these art t shirts as a way of expressing the saddness of the past(disguised as nostalgia for the thing that kept you busy and gave you some sense of joy and accomplishment as a child.) You write books about yourself in the past because you are living in the past still, and you need recognition and closure, and you are still calling for a better life, which is in itself a great teaching example to others. Create a new life for yourself! I know if I was your wife, instead of going to bed and leaving you to play video games at night, I'd be taking you out to have some fun in a tent in the backyard, talk about real life universal potentiality for hours while laying on the ground looking up at the stars, maybe play a board or card game or two while havin an import beer. Then curl into bed after we watch the sunrise together and laugh about things that happened in our previous day. Don't settle for anything but the best Wil! In all areas of your life! And dude! Like why are you not creating the software to create D&D maps with some tech buddies of yours? Is there not more money potential in that, is it not needed, come on, advance technology for your game! you can still draw your own, you are just gonna miss out on profiting from other people's time/effort concerns while you give away the idea for someone else to profit. I think it Is time to put your numbers on the top instead of being bottomed out, for sure! Oh, and where is our radio free burrito?? It's totally ok, if you tell us that you will make it whenever you feel like, so keep checking back. It's not cool to announce that you will do something than not do it repeatedly. It makes your fans feel alienated, lied to, and bored so they stop caring. lol believe me, I am guilty of all that too. In telling you, I can see my own flaws, so you are not alone in your weaknesses. I am gonna try and do all the things I say, or not say anything at all :) Thanks for being Awesome Wil! Our examples can be great teachers to the world!

I like the picture. It looks like an eye! The lettering is perfect on the TShirt. I be the rules lawyer just to see your sword glow ;) Blue is a good color for you! And whoever told you you were old? Get outa the suburbs fast! Think how you will feel when you are ninety and dream about the sunny days of your forties and fifties!? You are still young and coming into the prime of your life! Think Feel Be Young, not old. Exercise your body until you feel great. Enjoy movement because what you don't use, you lose. Find fun Physical ways to relieve stress. WHen is the last time you went surfing? or just soaked up the beauty of a sunset to regenerate your cells? You are only as young as you choose to be in your own mind. Come on, you are one of the lost boys in neverland, you are not allowed to grow up and get old! You must hold on to the chilldhood essence that is your true soul'd expression! Be confident and take care of yourself and do only what makes you happy! No comprimises to your hearts desire. I suggest you have more fun outdoors! xo

I don't play much video games but for rules lawyers, I was once told I was not allowed to dance for a live rock band DEEP FINE GRIND(that I knew), at the campus bar at NAIT Northern Alberta Institute of Technology School. "This is not the sort of place that allows dancing!" I was told by an angry female manager. "You have to sit in your chair and not move or you can get out of the club now!" Apparently I was too sexy in my mini skirt, boots, and a top that covered my entire upper body upto my neck with no cleavage and long sleeves. I looked too sexxy in my dancing that it desturbed her and her own sexual insecurities. I am repeatedly told that I do not belong at parties or functions if I choose to wear body fitting clothes that any normal person could wear, be confident and dance normally. My naturally cartoonish sensual physicality and volumptiousness of my upper body, something beyond my control and nothing to do with my personality or intellect, always seems to get me abused, and shunned and not given jobs, a sexual harssement target, and no female friends because they think I want to steal their boyfriends. Even the geeks I have a crush on can't seem to give me a chance because they assume so many things and no one cares to look at the real me. It seems most days that when I walk outside and just be my fun self, I am told NO, you are not allowed to be your self here, because it intimidates us. No, you will not get a decent job with us because you look like a whore and you are known for hanging around bands(my job as a promoter). No I don't want to love you because you must be a whore, so I won't give you a chance. It may be frustrating to have people tell you what you can't do in a video game, but image that if everyday people in your real life judge you by your looks and tell you that you are not allowed to be yourself, not allowed to work doing what you love, that just being you and minding your own business is a crime. Lucky I have enough stars as friends who can understand the separation felt from the vast audience of unaware, and to know where I belong, as a star myself. I try to not let those mean people intimidate me with their hate, to hate myself. I love myself, and I shine, despite the things they may throw at me. I make my own rules, based on the highest good for all. Then I stand my ground rooted in what I believe. Oh won't you all stand by me and we can all win this game ;)

So in your professional opinion is Lulu the best place for people to publish their books independently? Does it work for Canadians as well? Are you happy with the commission they take? Also do you own all the rights to the audio book for Just A Geek? If wanting to quote exerpts would someone go through you for permission? Is it better to quote the audio version then? Thanks Wil :D

It's ok to advertise for something if you actually like it yourself. It's ok to be rich too. There is enough for everyone. It's the barley in Ovaltine, that is why it is good for you, though the chocolate and suger in it might not be so good. At least it's a start.

Sounds like you'd like to have more kids, new people to play with because you will never grow up. lol Seriously, you are a good dad. Why don't you have more? I am sure your genes deserve to be passed on. Or you could just wait for grand kids I guess. You are still young though. Let me know if you need any eggs donated. or maybe you can just parent the world.

OMG! It's the Steven King Film Curse! He is such a demented writer that his stories actually come to life! Or maybe he is a profit, and your life story happens to be an interesting one to tell, or foretell as it may be. ONE or the other of these statements has to be true. Or maybe both are true and happening simultaniously in a space void of time as we all swirl and act out the preplanned storyline for our own ammusment where we all get a turn to play god and feel like the center of the universe, and then the oneness settles in, the storyline of creation enacting the devine within all. Too bad the clown got Jonathan Brandis :( I told you, actors live their characters to some degree. You Were in the movie Curse -fighting aliens. The liers cLub, you stood up for what was right- fighting rape, murder and disrespect of women. Toy soldiers, you stood up for what was right-terrorists taking over the school system. December, The peaceful hero who stands up against war. The Last Prostitute, you were a young boy looking for sex from an older woman. lol I think you must look to these clues to find your real self because as an actor you dont even know your true self, until you act it out in front of yourself. Its the magic of life being a star on display for everyone to see, so they can watch you discover yourself and then perhaps it will inspire them to discover themselves. See you are a super hero in more ways than one. I think you need to use your celebrity and get on board all those causes your characters fought for in your movies. Chop Chop! this is the new decade! This is our generation's time to rule, our time to truly shine, our time to win the fight for good, for good. Your soul is pure and you have more power than you know of yet. Isn't life Awesome when you Blossom! I just can't believe that you have been a major star in the world your entire life...and you still don't know it. lol Or you really are a Brilliant Actor fooling us all. Better get on working for those causes and you will soon find out! :) Start by giving the native people back their land. I will help you understand their spiritual ways. Happy New Year Wil! You are the King of ....... And my life is the same kinda weird, believe me. That's why I can help you understand. I am writing a book about it. Peace in the New year and forever more! xo vic

Sweet surf tune! I dance with and manage marketing for a tight three piece surf band called The Burnin' Sands. http://www.myspace.com/theburninsands I will email you some of their music if you would like to play it. Francios from the band also runs a surf promotion site http://www.myspace.com/ciapromoandmanagement where you can find links to many great Canadian surf bands. And I noticed you played Big John Bates & the Voodoo Dolls previously. John's been a good friend of mine for years, and we just played a show with them in October. Thank you so much for your exposure! Both are featured in a cartoon world I am creating to promote independant undergound Canadian rock music, and saving the environment. I am working on the first video for it now. Thanks for the support! As independant artists, we need it. I also represent many talented bands of various styles I can send you music from, but the Burnin' Sands are closest to my heart, and very fun to dance for! We have a show tonight. YAY! Keep up the good work Wil! :)

And you are an honorable man and your wife is lucky. I always try to look at everything from the highest perspective, so I see everyone in the world as part of my family and deserving of everything they need. While your family is your "real life" in a world where you are always a character on display, your character still effects millions of people, compared to the few at home. All those lives are important too. Now the people I love and my future children will be my personal passion and experience that I make time for, which is a selfish thing for me. But my highest ideals are to serve the greater good of the world. The world happens to be in a crisis right now, so I think , none of our families will truely be safe or happy unless we can win this fight against the greed and subsequent poisoning of our planet. I kinda think that our higher purpose and contribution to the world is greater and more important than any one human interaction we may have(at this point in history anyway). Two percpectives: our selfish personal life, and our giving back to the whole world life. I see myself as a soldier though, my fight for good is all that matters, and I am lucky enough to feel loved in as many moments as I can remember. I think it's wrong to put anyone above anyone else, even the ones you love the most, especially. To have peace in the world, we must all be equally valued. It boils down to time. I think if you spend 50% of your time with your family(the people that you love), and 50% of your time on work and purpose, you have a good balance, But they have to accomidate each other. To love yourself number one and do what makes you happy will be giving a good example to your children to grow up and go for their dreams. As long as people know they are loved sometimes it's ok to sacrifice some time with them for a greater cause. In your case, the kids are growing up, so you can take take your wife anywhere around the world you need to go. Our first responsibility is to our own hearts be true. Your family is in your heart, second to your own awareness and love of life itself. You are part of the greater world which you also have a responsibility to play your part in. I just know that true happiness comes from living your purpose (which another being cannot take the place of), then you will be connected to loving people. I would say you are on the right path with purpose and love. I was simply saying that you attract more wealth and abundance for you and your family by focusing on the power you have in the world and making it grow...through your fans, and the goodness you can spread. Everyone fighting for only their own families creates war unless we can see all humans as one race and all families deserving. If we can see that we share this planet and we start taking care of it and each other, all suffering will end. I choose to spend my TIME with my loved ones, yet I do not value them more than anyone else(I give them the only value I have-time). The greatest good for all is number one in my books! My individual life only maters in how I serve that all. But it is certainly nice to be loved and held along the way. That's why our purpose connects us to those we need to help us along our path and walk with on the journey.

It must be such a bummer to not own your own work, your own words. Just like most musicians. I am glad we have the freedom nowdays to promote ourselves on the internet. I will not give away my music or writings unless it is free for the fans, no need to support big money, unless it's my own, as I know my ethical conduct level, and I can put money back into the art. The independant artist movement is growing rapidly, and your podcasts(promoting music and books-like Oprah) could do very well if you set it up properly. Sell some advertising, even get bands to pay you to play their songs, since you have over a million and a half followers now, you could easily get sponsors and get paid for your Radio Free Burrito gig. You just gotta treat it like a big deal, and so it will become.

I hear ya, trick is to make all of your work and responsibilies fun if you can. Time is so consuming, you'd think we'd find a way to transend it by now, stretch it to our liking. At 32 I still find it hard to grow up and do what I am supposed to. I really just do whatever I feel like in the moment because I know that will be the best outcome. I always feel I know best in my heart what I need to do. Don't ever let any perceved responsibilities trap you Wil. Your number one responsibility is to you your fans. Is to your purpose in life. Its the fans who are the ones you heal and give you your most meaningful work. You are not just an actor, you are a hero to real people. Your career in this has always been, yet so much more to come. Remember you are in control of your life and you decide the script you write, you are in control, and can be free, and you are free, and all of this is what you choose. Priorities: 1. Wil's own joy and happiness. 2. Wil's contribution to the betterment of the world =FANS 3. Wil's Friends and Family 4. Healthcare and The Environment 5. Pay bills while having the most fun you can. Usually money comes directly from fulfilling obligations to number 2. STart to believe in magic more, I mean you did play the young Harry Houdini, mamnifest, manifest, manifest! Free yourself from anything that is not enjoyable and you will be much richer and life will be less stressful. Cheerios!
