Wil, I think it's a wonderful idea and I would KILL to have a personalized copy of the book!!

I'd thought of that right after I'd hit SEND. Damn you, Wil Wheaton! Now I need to hop in the Delorean, go back to 1987 and make sure Robert Smith (aka Fat Bob) writes Disintegration before KMx3...just so I can be right! Cut me some slack, my wife's preggo and I haven't been right in 8-1/2 months!

Listening to RFB #22 now....you actually bought Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me on CD before Disintegration, eh? That's got to be the hardest choice if you're a serious fan of The Cure. KMx3 is an amazing album (hehe, album), but nothing tops Disintegration....and it's soooooo 1989.

Wil, you're clearly a gifted writer and as you mentioned in RFB a week or two ago, you've come a long way over the last decade. I'm sure the majority of that was experience over time. My training when it comes to writing is very "traditional" in style (i.e. classroom taught). Is there a book or guide you could recommend that will help me improve my skills as a writer? Do you have any personal tips? Keep up the good work, my friend, and take care. John

Well said! So many people I've come across in my lifetime don't understand the true depth of this song. However, even though the Stones' version has the long-fullness and sorrow, it wasn't until the Brit band The Sundays covered it in 1993 did it achieve the haunting sound it deserved. It's rare that a cover succeeds where the original did not (see the Susan Boyle comment above). Please enjoy it for yourselves: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9lEd5bIbbQ

I'm with Bryan Fullerton, Ghost in the Shell absolutely blows Akira out of the water. I have the DVD, ripped copies on both home and work computers, and even a ripped copy on my iPhone. Plus, rumor still has it that Spielberg is planning on making a live-action version of GITS. Which, if true, would rock my world to the point I'd need a towel for cleanup.

Two questions for ya, Wil.... 1) How come you drink Guinness out of the can instead of the newer bottles that have the nitrogen capsule in the top? Those taste more like tap Guinness to me. 2) WTF is the "errors" quote from?? It's driving me shatbit crazy that I can't place it!! Keep up the extraordinary work! JT

Tee, Glad I'm not the only one who loved that game. I still have every single piece of all my Intellivision sets, if you can believe that....including D&D!

Dude, I thought I was the only person left on Earth who remembers ONTV! At this point I'm forced to ask if you also played Advanced D&D-Treasure of Tarmin on Intellivision, which is the most awesomest game in the history of the world. Okay, maybe not the MOST awesomest, but definitely the Earth-shatteringly, aliens want to kidnap us kind of awesome. BTW, thanks for getting Shatner's "Mr. Tambourine Man" stuck in my head for the rest of the day........douche. Take care!!

Wil, you are truly a talented writer and storyteller. The story you shared on yesterday's RFB (12/28/09) could have easily been just an everyday story with no real impact. However, your skills in both putting the words to paper (or monitor) and your ability to read them back to us with such passion is a gift. Keep up the good work, brother!!
