Wil, Did you hear that Lamar Smith was caught illegally using a photographer's picture on his website? That's right...the primary author of SOPA was found to be infringing on someone's copyright. http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20120112/11042717390/lamar-smith-caught-infringing-photographers-copyright.shtml

My good buddy Stefan Alexander recently released a free three track Acoustic Single pack as a promotion for his upcoming album. You should check him out, Wil...he's a fantastic songwriter, and an amazing guitarist. His site can be found here: http://www.stefanalexandermusic.com You can also find the EP he released a few years ago on iTunes. I can't recommend him highly enough!

"I love making something where something wasn't before..." That's EXACTLY why I love to write and make music. Whenever I read something or listen to a track, I suddenly forget what it was like before I read/heard it. I can try to picture a time not five minutes ago when this piece of media was completely unknown to me, but now it's a part of my knowledge base. It's something that I have stored in me, and every time I read or hear it from now until the day I die, it will never be new again. Knowing that even just a few people experience that feeling of something being NEW because I made it is amazingly rewarding.

One of the first "Adult" films I ever saw had Randy West in it...it was called Star Trek: The Next Penetration. And the sequel? Star Trek: The Search for Sperm.

I love reading stuff like this. Even though I'm not an actor (and never could be), I absolutely love being given an inside look at the process, ESPECIALLY while it's actually going on! Every time you talk about acting in some way, it makes me pine for more. Hey...have you thought about writing a book on acting? I don't mean how to be an actor, or how to get into the industry. I'm talking about what it's like living the life and what it means to you creatiely. Or would that be approaching the "Whoa there, that's for my brain and my brain only" territory?

Dude! If they don't completely wear you out, you should totally record a Radio Free Burrito episode like you did last time you were working on Eureka. It was awesome hearing your thoughts while you were in the middle of working. You always sound genuine, but somehow it felt even more genuine than in normally would.

"If you're hardcore, just juice that little green bastard right over the simmering pot, and say some Bond Villain stuff about how you expect it to die." This is possibly the greatest sentence you have ever written.

Oh man...I remember when you first posted that story on your blog! I love reading about the nostalgia in your life, since it gets me all weepy-eyed and nostalgic about my own life :) Question for you: does it ever weird you out that you know hardly anything about your readers/fans, yet they know a whole heap of stuff about you? I realize that's just a natural part of being a successful actor/blogger, but still...doesn't it weird you out? Just a little? http://www.livingwithanerd.com

Count me in as a buyer, were you to make something like this more widely available. If you were to put together some massive ZIP file on Lulu and peg the price at $80 (slight discount for the bulk purchase, not to mention no need to invest in USB drives), you would likely sell a fair number of them. ESPECIALLY if you've already done the work of creating the archive...think about it, we would pay a measly $80 (or whatever you decide to charge) for this amazing collection, you would get cash money (well..."digital" cash money), AND the actual cost to you would be minimal. I really hope you generate enough interest to do this; I, for one, would buy it on the first day. TAKE MY MONEY, WIL! http://www.livingwithanerd.com

When I was a kid, we got a subscription to Highlights sent to our house. I would go through each copy meticulously for about a week, then put it in the stack of other "forgotten" issues. It wasn't until I was about 20 or so, and I brought it up to my Mom, that I found out why we actually had the subscription: My step-dad loved reading it. ::head shake:: I swear, the things you learn about your parents when you come of age... http://www.livingwithanerd.com

The gaming bug bit my wife and I seemingly out of nowhere a couple of months ago. I went from not having played a pen-and-paper in close to a decade, to being involved in no less than FOUR different campaigns taking place in THREE different gaming systems (two DnD games, one Star Wars game, one Red Dwarf game.) Question for you: how does one go about translating session notes into an actual storyline? The reason I ask is I've been tasked with keeping session notes for the home-made 3e campaign a buddy of mine is running (I play a dwarf named Belthor, commonly known as Belt.) Once the campaign is over, I plan on condensing all the notes down into a single document (with comments from the players at the end of each session)...but it's going to be nothing more than literally taking the session notes and smooshing them together. I would MUCH rather translate them into a full-blown flowing story, but have absolutely no idea where to start. Any suggestions? The relevant session notes (night four was last night...there will likely be a total of 16-20 nights): http://livingwithanerd.com/tag/personal-campaign/

Excellent stuff! I would gladly pay for it! I myself have been recently getting into the whole fiction thing...I've only released one story so far, but check it out...it's free to read and free to download on Scribd. It's a short story called "Reversion", in which a zombie finds himself slowly coming back to life. Enjoy! http://www.scribd.com/doc/45870839/Reversion Tagline: A zombie awakens to find himself slowly turning human. What becomes of the grey when they return?

Some friends and I are currently going through a 3e campaign that's really laid back (we have character sheets, but we were given an automatic 18 for one of our attributes, were given max starting gold, max hp per level until we hit level 5, etc. No map or minis, either.) I've been tasked with writing up the session notes, which I've been posting for all to read. So far, we've only had three sessions (last night was our third night), but once the campaign is over I'm going to put everything together in a single document and post it on scribd. The first three nights session notes weigh in at around 5,000 words. Here's a link to the tag on my site, if anyone is interested: http://livingwithanerd.com/tag/personal-campaign/ Note: I had only met the DM prior to this game starting...the other two players knew each other, but I had never met them prior.

"Not too shabby, since this initially started out as the dreaded blog about not blogging" Man, I HATE when that happens...whether it's writer's stupidity, can't think of a topic, or whatever causes it, those are the kind of posts that make me feel like an ass the whole time I write one. That being said, it does kind of suck that you don't have the creative juices needed to act full time for Eureka AND write up a blog post every day...but come on! You get to act full time! FOR EUREKA! Can't wait to see it :) http://www.livingwithanerd.com

GAH! This sort of thing always seems to happen...a friend will email me about a kick-ass shirt, I'll check it out the next day or day after, and then find out it was a super-limited-time kind of thing. I know this is done to keep the shirts unique, but still...GAH! http://www.livingwithanerd.com

That's a shame...my then-fiance now-wife found it while browsing Netflix, and we both really enjoyed it. Sure, it was campy, but it was still a lot of fun. What about it made it such a pain in the ass to film? Jane White is Sick and Twisted is still, by far, the greatest piece of media you have ever been a part of. Seriously. That movie holds "legendary" status in our house, and is even used as a "test" for new friends.

So awesome! One of these days, we'll make it out to PAX Prime. I've never been to Washington State, and going to PAX Prime seems like the perfect introduction to the state. My wife and I recently got into Zombie Dice (thanks to a post you made on twitter a few months ago.) It really is the perfect way to kill 10-15 minutes...super fun, and easily adaptable as a drinking game ;-) http://www.livingwithanerd.com

I still hate the fact that these things are happening way too far from me to make a trip possible, but I'm glad they have been so successful for you:-) It's important to have an anchoring thing like this in everyone's life, and the fact that yours just happens to be so awesome for everyone is a great bonus! http://www.livingwithanerd.com

You know...you've written about more interesting topics before. You've written better blog posts before. Hell, you've written funnier stuff before. But for some, inexplicable reason, this is quite possibly my favorite post from you of all time :-) Your excitement seemed to permeate through what you wrote....I love it :-) http://www.livingwithanerd.com

Yeah...you wouldn't want to create a real-life Moonpie :p All joking aside though, I look forward to reading your opinion on the law. I'm also happy to hear that regardless of your (obviously) negative view of it, you aren't going to hold that against your fans. I swear dude, if you earn any more props, you'd have...um...uh...well, I don't know what it would be, but it would be something that was fucking proper, that's for sure. http://www.livingwithanerd.com
