I think your turn on CSI was a testament to your acting skills. You weren't the baddie, but we didn't know that until the end. BTW, that episode is totally based on the true story of Stephanie Crowe. Her brother was accused of her murder (along with two of his buddies) and it ended up being a local crazy homeless guy.

About time, dude. I began reading WWDN in September, 2002, and I've been (im)patiently waiting for you to resurrect it.

It's just a joke, dude.

Happy anniversary Wil! I started reading WWDN way back in September 2002, way, way back when you had message boards. Yes, I am that old school. And yep, I was part of Wil's Posse, a term that has apparently gone out of style in recent years. (That actually kinda makes me sad.) During the past 9 years, you've introduced me to Fark, Wootstock, and John Scalzi, to name a few. (I think Scalzi owes you a few beers--I own every one of his books and have bought several as gifts for other people.) Thanks for hanging out with us, Wil. It's been fun. :)

It's so eerie to me that all the actors grew up and did what their characters did in the movie. You became a writer, River died long before his time, Corey had a troubled couple of decades, and Jerry married Rebecca Romijn (just like Vern). In all seriousness, I call that unexpected swell of sadness a Grief Sucker-punch. It's basically surprise grief over the loss of a loved one.

""Are we playing 3.5?" I asked, imagining a five hour encounter where I did little more than grapple." You can have your 4e minis boardgame, and I'll keep my Descent and my Pathfinder RPG.

I was 11. It was my first "I remember exactly where I was when I found out" event.

"Yeah, if you don't know what a Muggle is, you're a Muggle. " Heh, I often say of someone I know, "The fact that he doesn't KNOW he has an 8 WIS is further proof that he has an 8 WIS."

I think flipping off the camera is one of the few ways you can retain your masculinity while wearing an elf suit. Or tights.

Wil, you KNOW a commentary for ANY of your movies would sell like hotcakes. I'm still waiting for your Stand By Me commentary. Also, I lovelovelove the fake "tv edits" version of Hot Fuzz. "PEAS AND RICE!"

So Wil, the top half of that guy's face looks just like you, and the bottom half looks just like Ben Affleck. I look at the eyes and nose and hair and I think, "Hey that's Wil Wheaton!" and then I look at the mouth and chin and it's so obviously Ben Affleck. Pretty cool.

That was so awesome I just had to submit it to Fark. I gave you credit in the headline and used the Wheaton tag, but sadly Fark told me to Fark off. :/

Wil, when you blogged about your visit to Julian, it inspired me and my family to spend the following Christmas there. For oh, 25 years now, my parents have spendt at least one weekend a year at Shadow Mountain Ranch in Julian. My parents decided to rent Manzanita Cottage and the Gnome Home for Christmas in 2007. My parents stayed in the Gnome Home, and my fiance and my brother and I shared the Manzanita (it's got two bathrooms and two bedrooms). It was a very, very special holiday that year. My parents paid for the rooms, my husband and I bought the food and tree, and he and I did all the cooking (which we love to do, so it was great!). It gave us the opportunity to hang out with family and play boardgames (Pirates Cove and Red Dragon Inn) and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. My brother had just moved back to San Diego, so it was our first Christmas together in years. It was really a delightful holiday for all of us. So, thank you for inspiring us to make it one. We never would have done it had you not done it first, and then told the internet about it. (In fact, if you go back to your original post, you can read my comment where I say I might suggest it to my family.)

LOL, Wil. You seriously underestimate the number of game industry folks who read your blog. You are sort of our face to the rest of the world, our ambassador to the non-geeks, so to speak. And I remember the squee-fest from a few years ago when you were all like "OMG OMG OMG! I just got an email from Monte Cook!" and Monte was all like "OMG OMG OMG! I just got an email from Wil Wheaton!" It was freaking hilarious to read on both your blogs your mutual squee (or rather, your Mutual Admiration Society not-so-secret handshake). I got (and still get) a good chuckle out of that. And yeah, I also failed to buy the entire M:TG set back in 1993, because $80 is a shitload of money when you're 18. Fast-forward 10 years, and epic facepalm.

I LOVED that game store on the Ave! I was very sad when Hasbro shut it down. It was really an amazing game environment.

Wil, first of all, I'm very sorry for your loss. I lost my two dogs (geez, 13 years ago now) exactly two weeks apart, and it tore me up. I had just gotten a kitten, and she really helped me through the pain. (I'm not suggesting you get a replacement pet, but I do know that pets can sense when things are wrong, and they do try to comfort their moms and dads. I'd only had Dot a few weeks when Charlie and Nilla died, and yet she still knew when I was feeling the loss of my pals and she did her best to cheer me up.) Talking to Nolan won't be a burden for him. He'll learn that grief is perfectly acceptable, natural, and nothing to be ashamed of. You'll feel better, too. Knowing someone feels EXACTLY the same way you do is sometimes the catharsis one needs. Group therapy, except this time it's with someone you know and love, who knew and loved the one you lost. If Nolan's as awesome you make us all think he is, he'll get it. Losing a pet is one of the most painful things to happen to someone. We love our pets so much, and so effortlessly, that it can be devastating when they die. I know exactly how you feel. I'm sorry, Wil.

My husband and I have a small fortune (and an entire wall of our garage) invested in Dwarven Forge. A couple weeks ago we got the latest Realm of the Ancients set which we'd pre-ordered a while ago. It really adds to the game, and it's fun to play with, too!

So uh, after watching that, the only thing I can say is, "Dude, pass me some of that shit!" Seth MacFarlane is a mad genius, just like king Bumi. (And I almost said TODD McFarlane, which tell you how much of a nerd I am.)

I'm totally looking forward to that book, Wil. Gimme gimme gimme! (Hint hint: I'd also read one about Stand By Me, or Toy Soldiers.)

Okay, I kind rescind my snipe against Twitter. I still think it's a bit too mainstream, but WOW has more users than twitter does, so I can't really go by numbers alone. I guess I feel that only a geek would play WOW, but pretty much anyone would tweet.

My problem with this video is that so many of things the participants claim makes them geeky aren't actually owned by geek culture. Twitter? Please. There are six million users. Might as well cite Netflix. It's almost like saying, "I loved Spirited Away and so I'm a geek." The internet in general? My 70-year-old dad uses the internet ALL THE TIME. Sending email? Again, my 70-year-old dad is a competent emailer. And my mom is on Facebook. And don't get me started on how geeky iPods aren't. Where's Vin Diesel proudly boasting that he LOVES D&D and has a tat of his first character's name? Where's Mila Kunis talking about her Alliance character in WOW? Where is Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, and Adam Baldwin talking about how awesome Halo is? Where is Peter Jackson talking about how Tolkien completely changed his life? Where's Adam Savage giving us his Fark handle (come on Adam, do it!)? They're not there. Instead, we have Shaq, who says he's a geek but doesn't actually present any evidence.
