I was also going to suggest bandcamp. It has a good interface and the uploader's also pretty nice. -bill

Oh, and I meant to say, also to try to convince my wife to try it out ... she says all the numbers make role-playing look too much like work (she's a physicist). -bill

Thanks, Wil... your podcasts have really been making me nostalgic for role-playing in the same room with others... (have been doing a bit via IRC, but that's not as good). And I was thinking of checking out 4e, so this is perfect. -bill

Hi Wil Wheaton, I have seen you mention Scalzi many times. I just came across this free e-book from Tor, thought you might want to publicize it: http://tor.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=blog&id=577 "Old Man's War" I don't remember seeing you mention this before. Funny you are hanging out with Frontalot. We know him from SongFight! Some of his songs were written for our competitions over there. -bill

Fantastic. I can definitely hear the Cocteau Twins similarity, really enjoying the sounds. I guess I'll have to buy it, then! Thanks, Wil, for letting us know, and thanks to Warner for the full preview! -bill

Wil - are you reading this far back? It seems my RSS feed stopped updating for some reason. Anyway, Magnatune is great. If you're in the mood for electronic rock, Brad Sucks is awesome as is c.layne, both on Magnatune. I know these guys from Songfight.org. I also like previously mentioned Drop Trio and Falling You. -bill

Yeah! I really loved Robert Guillaume's voice work on Half-Life 2 and didn't realize until I finished the game and saw the credits that he was the same guy I loved to watch on Soap and Benson.... Also, don't forget Portal ;) Ha! I just realized that the GLaDOS (Portal) == Overwatch (HL2)! Awesome. -bill

I too am an MST3K fan... my first one was Sidehackers, not the best episode, but enough to get me hooked :) I haven't seen any of the Cinematic Titanic yet, but I did get one of the Film Crew for Christmas, and it was pretty cool. Weird to hear those "robot voices" coming out of actual people ;) -bill

Doh, I missed it. I thought it would be at least available when I got back to work. The bad part here is that we can't even order the paperback anymore... I waited for the hardcover, but now I got nothin'. Can we open the ordering again for paperbacks, please? -bill

Oh yes, the T-shirt debate... yes, I've had that one many a time with my wife. Heh. Most of mine fit in the space designated, though... just a bit of a tight fit :) -bill

Re: music while writing - there was one chapter of a story I was writing, and I had decided that I had to listen to Love & Rockets "Ritual Radio" while writing ... it's a 17-minute song or something like that but I still had to repeat it 3 times :) I totally dug the audiobook for Just A Geek and I'd love to get that for the new book and also for Dancing Barefoot. The new hardcover, probably, also... -bill

We started watching HIMYM from the beginning... not sure why, although it may have been because when I was in high school I looked exactly like Neil Patrick Harris... though not much any more. This and Simpsons are the only current comedies we watch now... Wil, I think you'd really enjoy the show in general. -bill

I haven't been able to read the article - my work web blocks that particular URL (are the articles mirrored anywhere that's not blocked?) - but I am a big fan of games. Played a lot of role-playing growing up. Lots of D&D but if I were to play one now I'd probably pick Paranoia. We have a group that plays strategy games... Carcassonne, RoboRally, Puerto Rico come to mind. Fluxx is crazy fun. Oh, I want to play it more often, but Once Upon a Time is a very fun story-telling game. You can play cutthroat but what's the point, it's more fun to play cooperatively and tell a fun story. Have been enjoying a lot of Boggle lately. -bill
