Boy, I really need to start writing people hate mail. Sadly, I'm lacking venom and I'm like, I dunno, a decent person or something.

Damn it Wil, every time you retell this story, it GETS me. I am making notes for future fatherhood.

Wil, that's because your iTunes has A.I. Is it running on a computer made by Cyberdyne Systems, by any chance?

This was a tough one. I bought "Boy," though, just to offset all the people who are planning to buy whatever new U2 album is being released that will surely be as inferior as their last decade's output. And if you earned a commission from it, even better, Wil. Thanks.

You do realize this is going to inspire another work of art painting you holding an image of you holding a painting of you, which will lead to an infinite number of these things? MY GOD WHEN WILL IT END LOOK AT ALL THE STARS NOM NOM NOM

I smell a new career. Because, you know, writer/actor/geek icon isn't enough.

Sorry for the delayed response, Wil, I just saw this in my Google Reader. Well, at least now your tweets make sense put into context. This reminds me of a situation that arose a few months ago. I used to have a LiveJournal, and someone I knew from about 15 years ago appeared out of nowhere and left nasty, unprovoked comments on a post calling me out for being a pretentious asshole, or something to that effect. Completely having nothing to do with anything. But this person knew me from my late teens/early 20s, a time period in which, yes, I WAS a pretentious asshole. I mean, we all were, right? Eventually, she realized that 30-something Pj is a swell guy, and put away the claws. But I'm pretty sure that in the minds of people who knew only of my exploits "back in the day," I'm still that smug bastard they loved to hate. And you're still Wesley Crusher. ;) For the record, I always rooted for your character anyway, hoping one day they'd put Wesley in a real Federation uniform. Redshirt, my ass.

I want you to know I have all seasons of STTNG queued up in Netflix, as I have not watched them since their original airing and had a hankering. So be warned: There may be Wesley Crusher mockery coming soon to a blog or microblog near you. :)

And hence, all the entries I missed from earlier this year are pretty much caught up. Here's to a fictionally productive, surgery-free 2009, Wil!

Argh, stupid comic won't load. I think you and Grunberg killed it.

That is the greatest cast ever. I think I just realized Jack Black should star in every musical. Then I'd go see them. Take that, Mark Evanier!

First, friggin' TypePad asks me to sign in EVERY TIME. Come on, guys. Second, the only time I got weepy about this election was on the treadmill at the gym last week, watching Obama's rally somewhere being broadcast live on CNN. On TV screens surrounding that one, McCain commercials preyed on fear and FOX News preyed on ignorance. Meanwhile, Obama just spoke of hope, unity, togetherness and the future. It made me reinvigorated I made the right choice when I hit the polls early last week.

I was going to do NaNoWriMo, but then I did the math and realized there's no friggin' way I can churn out 1,800 words a day to hit the 50,000-word mark by month's end. But I did decide to alternatively use this month to finish the plot and start the script for the comic series I'm going to be shopping around soon ...

Oh, and I just stumbled onto this 30 seconds after posting that comment: http://www.agreeablecomics.com/therack/?p=347 Damn, you get around, my friend.

Damn it Wil, now you've gone and distracted me from work for another 10 minutes. On the flipside, now I know where to get an Oregon Trail emulator. Hell yeah.

You know, I actually replied to one of these once. I was editing a magazine at the time, and thought it would make for a good story -- to explore just what happens if you get caught up in these scams. They never got back to me. I guess my personal information wasn't worth enough for them?

Looks pretty good. Incognito, that is. I'm kind of surprised that your reasoning for finally getting into a Marvel title is that it "made me forget that I was reading a story about a dude in a spandex suit." That's how I primarily viewed DC books outside of, say, Ronin, Dark Knight Returns, etc. -- silly costumed character stories with no weight. I was a pretty heavy Marvel leaner, but I formed an appreciation for late-80s DC fare such as Batman, Superman, The Question, even the early-90s Green Lantern revival (you know, where Hal Jordan was doing his "search for himself" across America -- good times). Now, I view DC having regressed to the simplistic, spandex stories (seriously, I cannot even keep track of the nonsense going on over there with the 8 million universes re-spawned), while Marvel's been knocking 'em out of the ballpark with stuff by Ellis, Brubaker, etc. But that's just me. Glad you found Brubaker's Cap. One of the few solid Marvel titles on my pull list that isn't endangered (I'm looking at you, X-Men).

I think some jerk with a totally awesome book should jack into the Vegas Valley Book Festival this November. Ican guarantee you will sell and sign at least one book. :)

Well, considering the only other thing I saw today was the view from my cubicle, yes, this is definitely the coolest thing I've seen today. I need new Legos, stat.

I never got into RPGs outside of the kind that required you to enter simple text commands on a computer screen. I have friends from high school (lo those many decades ago) who STILL get together to play D&D every Thursday night. I guess among us geeks, there are even different levels.

It's awesome and terrible that both PAX and Bumbershoot take place in Seattle at the same time. There was a bizarre scene on my flight back from Seattle to Las Vegas (coming from Bumbershoot -- I don't have enough geek cred for PAX) where a drop-dead gorgeous young woman in platform heels and a short dress showing genuine interest in the three pimply, be-spectacled geeks talking with her for two-and-a-half hours about Penny Arcade. Great exchanging of cultures there.
