Awesome Will. I wish Ryan the best! ITS really kinda wierd, we are the same age you and I. I CANT BELIEVE WILL WHEATON IS ALMOST 40! I have delayed starting a family for work and I through some of your blogs, twitter posts, and such I ever so often get that sinking feeling...maybe I shouldnt have :) I mean some of us have followed the blogs, twitter where Will writes quaintly about Ryan being home, jumping on his account etc. I kinda log on to twitter alittle more around Chirstmas because I like to watch a 24 Hour of a Christmas Story on TBS while wrapping presents and making silly quips on Twitter...and I realized WILL did this as well -- too funny. And i believe WIll and Ryan watch/watched the Twillight Zone episodes marathon (not sure what year or years) on New years day the same years I didnt travel due to work or such. But being in the Entertainment Biz already you Will know how it can go and I am about ready to set some of my projects to green light after years of hard work and preparation. But someday I hope to stand point with a complete TROLL face pointing at my son who has graduated from college...evil WILL appeareth! It always brought a smile to my face when I logged into Twitter around the Chirstmas holiday and see RYAN typing through your account... i found it funny and quaint. I guess because we came to expect it out here over the years around this time of year haha. Ill pop on twtitter Christmas eve Will... I expect no less than 10 funny or silly Chirstmas Story quips or rehashed lines posted! "Youll shoot yer eye out kid!" Merry Christmas Ryan, WIll and Family

Also, I think you write better when it is from the heart and not forced. So write more like the Keystone Cops meaning whatever in the heck comes up! You do not have to writr a polished story with a perfect 3 act structure! Its a fun blog!

Wil, You have really been fun and interesting man. I don't know what you are talking about tired of you BAH! Sir it would be cool if you would follow me on Twitter (this is an official request). I do not spam my peeps so don't worry about that but here is why! Do you know what I think is cool.... It seems I am almost always home on Christmas Eve these past few years! When I am watching a 24 hours of a Christmas Story.... I tweet some lines and silly quips. You know I am wrapping presents and such so I have to be home you know. Then a few seconds to minutes later on TWITTER...there goes Wheaton...reciting some lines from the movie. Cool Wil is home too I AM NOT ALONE IN THE UNIVSERSE on Christmas eve wrapping presents hahaha! CONFIRMATION! So I talk to you and of course you never see it :). Anyway, I will pop over to your blog as well and it has made me raise an eyebrow. Many a time I have read a blog from you and say - is Wheaton looking in my window????? You mirrow what I am doing sometimes like: Watching SYFY Twillight Zone Marathons sometimes or Watching MEGA SHARK vs MEGA OCTOPUS you know the coolest movie on the planet. It is just funny to hear the escapades you have -- only the way Wil Wheaton can! Anyway I hope you keep blogging sometimes its cool to hear someone else is doing the same stuff as yourself or thinking about the same stuff.

Will, I would really like to see a BLOG about how you reallytruly felt in the past and in the present regarding the TNG cast... did your nerves differ depending on WHAT cast member it was you would be with? Same for all? I think it would be an informative blog yet personal I know. I dont read every blog, but usually when I do I enjoy them.

Well Wil, I work at one of the few original Cyclotrons in the country. We almost got shut down a few months ago because..... YOU GUESSED IT.... funding. THe government/state/officials who rub elbows with them didnt think it was worth the investment to keep a 30 year old cyclotron going. We have one of the most power beams in the country, treat cancer with proton therapy (until recently wasnt NEW thing), and do amazing science that studies new matter, materials, etc. We test for NASA because we have one of the few beams that can put out the power we do with such varied control for tests needed on materials. But some bean counter almost shut it down....its still running thank goodness... and new science is being done...some that directly affect materials used in old and new items for SPACE and beyond.

[Makes my best Andy Rooney Face] [Begin talking in Andy Rooney like voice] You know Wil, I have been a Gamer almost all my life. It started with Atari, and just avalanched from there. Eventually, I got my first PC, and, well, I was hooked on PC RPGs and MMOs from then on. Now, I have played everything from the classic GOLD BOX DND games, the Baldur's Gate series, and Neverwinter Nights. Later, EQ and WOW dominated my time. I have enjoyed them all. So it was interesting, Wil, you wrote this article. It made me rethink this topic.It is true that video games have improved and implemented some amazing FMV into the games. Lately though, I have had to ask myself, do video games match or come close to the immersion and impact of movies? At first it may seem like a trivial question, but really it's not. Now, I agree that video games have gotten progressively better with implementing cut scenes or FMV into the game play..sometimes very cleanly and near seamlessly. But gamers have to ask themselves... as you have or aluded to...would you chose a movie over game in terms of immersion. For all their high tech wonder..I just don't think video games are there yet. Movies rely on human actors to get messages across on many levels. The nuances of the actors and their presentation can do without any fancy shmancy high tech graphics what video games really can't. The human factor, even if it is on film or video, still shines through. Now I am not sayign video games are bad in anyway, I love them. I just don't think pixels can affect people the way a good old fashioned movie can. I have saved the world countless times, slayed a million orcs, saved a hundred princesses, and yet I still haven't been emotionally moved to shed a tear while playing a video game -- whether on Atari or Dragon Age. In conclusion, there may come a time when video games can do that, be so immersive that I will be brought to tears...but not this day. Movies, I think, with their human touch will always win out over non-human sources of entertainment.. But with advances in technology coming down the pipe, holograms, holodecks, or who knows maybe even interactive robots.... after all.. All Good Things come to an End.

Excellent Wil. Glad to hear it was a good year for you. Hopefully all of us contributed to that. I can say truthflly it was THE GUILD that got me started on reading your BLOG and such. I didnt even know Fawkes was you until I had watched 2-3 epidoes with you in it... then in GAG reels I raised my eyebrow and said..."Is that who I think it is..." The decade seemed to have started out rocky for you from reading a few older blogs. It is nice to see a success story from -- Oh god I am going to say it the dreaded phrase -- a former child actor. LOL Congratz on this year and beyond!

Well, Wil I enjoy your blogs..I went back to read some of them (I dont have time to read them all!) Such self reflection! Its really wierd to think that years later long after I have watched all these episodes many times each... Im reading a blog of a guy who played a kid who played an astronaut on a star trek...(tropic thunder reference). It is interesting to step back and see Star Trek (especially TNG) for what it is. I take the Gene Roddenberry view of Star Trek...Wagon Train to the Stars...Hope for the Future .. attitude... Maybe as an actor actually acting IN the episodes you and the other TNG crew can have more "oh god its just a job" kind of take on it...overall I think Star Trek TNG affected people in very positive ways...even poor ol' Wesley contributed to the overall STAR TREK TNG mystique... and made it that less than perfect thing...which is why people love it. Look at the new STAR TREK film... too perfect...too honed... too contrived...its blatently obvious it didnt grow it was meticulously produced...TNG grew...its easy to see from start to finish...the direction wasnt always straight ahead. Some of the TNG episodes were cheesy. Some were dramatic. Some touching. Some stupid. Some far out in left field HUH type. But someone once said "The whole [can be] greater than the sum of its parts." Wesley was part of the whole...maybe not the greatest part...but hey helmet hair....adds to the flavor..i mean would a mohawk been any better? :) I think people (like you) appreciated and even felt a connection with the cast, yes even Wesley, and I think when the last episode aired in 1994...alot of people were sad. Even tho it ended on one of the coolest ending shows I can think of. You were part of something unique...a show that touched people on many levels...artistically, emotionally, creatively, and more. I appreciate TNG ... I have no regrets saying that. I doubt another cast will pull off something like in the Star Trek universe anytime soon.
