Arrgh, the Room is one of the worst/best! Between that and Troll 2 my best friend is very hesitant about letting me make him watch anything.

Haha, weird I just watched Clerks and Clerks: The Animated Series last night. Enjoyed the rest of the post as well. I can't wait for Eureka 4.5 to come out on DVD so I can catch up on it already!

There is a set of smoke stacks on a coal plant in Oswego, NY that I feel the same way about. For the five years I went to college in that town I'd catch sight of the stacks and know I was about ten minutes from what I considered my home. I guess what I'm saying is: I know EXACTLY what you mean, Wil.

Okay, just wondered if it was intentional since it's "dialogue" throughout the text.

I can't wait to pay a dollar for something that short! Also, I just picked up the all-in-one set of TNG on DVD and it got me wondering: any news on when I can stop drooling over the idea of Memories of the Future Volume 2 and start drooling over the reality of Memories of the Future Volume 2? (On a side note: Has anyone ever mentioned that "Dialogue" is misspelled as "Dialog" on the back cover of MotF v1? Not sure what would go into correcting that but thought it was worth letting you know if you didn't know already.)

Who needs friends who only comment when you're offering to give them something when you've got this many Smurfs?

Hey, I'm not the one who went on a tirade about pictures of a kitten with magnet slippers. Believe me, I'm familiar with Wheaton's Law. In fact, by asking what the weather was like with her head up her ass, I was pointing out what I felt to be her dickishness. Maybe telling people who are acting like idiots that I think they're acting like idiots makes me a dick, but i don't think so. But if my previous statement offends, then please, let me amend: Judith, I think you're being ridiculous. It's a kitten with magnet shoes. Chill out.

I loved that movie. My favorite part was the monologue about Vietnam and the kid whose, "little Chinese legs were blown clean off!"

That muthafucka's lying and getting me pissed. What I want to know is, how does that work?

Oh man, the FIRST time I killed my horse I was horrified! I was trying to shoot a person who'd ridden off on it and hit the horse by mistake. The SECOND time I killed my horse, I was transporting a bounty and accidentally rode it off a cliff that was high enough to kill the animal but not me or my bounty. He and I were stuck out in the middle of nowhere. Took me a minute to remember I owned a couple of other horses before I whistled for one. Now it's to the point where if one of my horses dies I just kind of shrug and call in a new one. Oh and if I come across one of those "please help me, mister" ambushes I kill their horses after I take out the would-be thieves. My thinking is, those horse are domesticated and wouldn't last long in the desert so I'm actually doing them a favor. Also, their meat and skins pad my wallet rather nicely.

Dear Wil, Having that in my Guild set in my DVD collection would certainly give a +3 buff to my saving throws against having a crappy day. Your Pal, McKenneth

It's pretty spoiler-free to be honest with you. Not to spoil the podcast for you.

I was really happy to find out that my suspicions were correct. I'd seen on the Guild's Wikipedia page that season 4 was due to start filming in May and when you said you were busy and it was, in fact, May... the cogs started cogging.

Wil, I sent you a DM on Twitter but I'm not sure if you'll actually see that or not. You are credited in the RDR booklet. You're near the end of the "Local Population" section. I looked.

Should have seen the ending coming when Penny quoted Empire. That's really what this episode was; The Big Bang Theory's equivalent to The Empire Strikes Back.

The Strong Museum of Play here in Rochester, NY has an enormous arcade game collection that you can play. That is, if you ever find yourself in Rochester, NY. http://www.icheg.org/ <---the organization that runs the exhibit.

I felt so bad for the Apple Store guy I talked to just after the iPad was announced. I could tell that even he didn't give a crap about the thing. He asked what I thought of it and I told him, honestly, "I was hoping for something more like a Cintique. I don't even know why this thing exists." He nodded and said, "yeah." An Apple Store guy heard me say that and then agreed with me! But the idea of maybe someday being able to run a D&D session on one is pretty rad.

I really wanted to go to PAXEast. I mean I REALLY wanted to. When I realized I couldn't swing it financially, I was miffed. When I found out Wil was going to give the keynote, I was beside myself. I knew nothing that I wound up doing could possibly measure up to a weekend in Boston spent among thousands of my fellow nerds in celebration of gaming and getting the chance to meet Wil Freaking Wheaton, a person I've come to look up to quite a bit in recent months. I was wrong. This weekend I went and visited my Friend Brian who lives about an hour and a half away. We went and walked around a mall, checked out a comic shop, played video games, talked about how ridiculously good looking Zooey Deschanel is, and generally geeked out. Brian and I became casual friends during a fiction class we took in college. We both have writing degrees and we share our work with each other when we want honest feedback. I recently sent Brian the opening of what I'm calling my "Crappy Fantasy Novel." We talked about that a lot this weekend. Even though I'd known Brian for a while it wasn't until we started playing D&D together about six months after we met that Brian and I became what I call "Capital F" Friends. Brian is one of those people who makes me feel like my life would be somehow diminished if he were to leave it. We don't see each other as often as I'd like because we're both pretty broke and gas is wicked expensive. The good news is we were hanging out this weekend getting ready for a new D&D campaign that will hopefully start up Saturday after next. The plan is to play twice a month and I really hope it works out. Not just because it means getting to see Brian more often but I also get to see Phil, our DM, who I hadn't seen in two years until this weekend. And since we need to round out the party, I'll be meeting a few new people. People who love to play D&D. People with whom I more than likely have a lot in common. I may not have been able to make the trip to Boston but i spent the weekend reveling in my geekdom with friends who love to game. I was worried the weekend would wind up being a waste. I am glad I was mistaken.

Congrats Wil! I really wish I'd found out you were going to be giving the keynote before I decided that I couldn't afford the trip to Boston. I still wouldn't have been able to afford it but who needs new shoes?

can you say, "New cellphone lock-screen?" There, I knew you could.
