Wil, the 80's and arcade games always make my day. My son and I recently went to a car wash near our house and it had the sit down Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Dig-Dug and Frogger. We had a blast. I would love to open something like Ground Kontrol out here in the L.A. area. Maybe someday I will do it.

1974 here. Man you guys seem so old. :P Missed you at Comic-con this year Wil. Was hoping to get a picture. My wife was also mildly obsessed with meeting you while we were there. Happy Birthday!!

You mention being "off in another place" with your Wife, and I find myself in the same circumstances. Unfortunately for me and my wife, I don't usually have an outlet or time to create an outlet for my minds creative interruptions. Therefore, they pop up much more frequent than they should, and at the most inopportune times. I love writing, and had great aspirations of being a screen writer during my college days. But, life took me elsewhere, and I still struggle to keep the creative beast from interfering with my family time and my current work. Unfortunately, you always get that call from the back of your mind saying, "you should write that down." And...I never do. Maybe some day I will finally make time. Perhaps then I can see what it is to do nothing and something at the same time.

So, a good day yesterday and a crazy idea today. Sounds like the week is working nicely on this Hump Day. On a side note, I had a good chuckle at Wesley Crusher hanging out with the Troopies last month. I do believe he was dancing to MC Hammer with Darth Vader at one point. Worth a look if you haven't seen it. http://www.flickr.com/photos/icedsoul/3315296084/in/set-72157604034244154/

Wil, it would be great to have you back on a TV series again. Not V huh? "Mousey!" I loved that mini-series as well. I watched in my parents room each night because they didn't like it. I was so young that I didn't see the plot twist coming. Good luck on the audition. Side note: I have my cousin convinced that you told me to tell her how to fix her updates from Facebook Mobile. Because you're the Geek god and have the ability to solve all tech related problems. At least as far as she is concerned. She says thanks. :P

I am with you there. I have my wife drive any time we head towards L.A. or Orange County. I sit in the passenger seat and pretend its all a dream. I hate driving. I drive 20 minutes to work, and 20 minutes back. When I worked across from the Capital building, I would take the Metro Link, and even that was a complete pain in the butt.

Robots don't miss deadlines. What kind of robot are you? Wil, it is refreshing to see that you are just as normal as the rest of us. Just don't make a habit of it. :) Unicorns!! "Come on Charlie, come to the Candy Mountain"

It's because you didn't get the High-Five. Fluffy, White Pawed, High-Five (maybe it was High-Four, I don't quite remember).

L.A. Forum, 1991, Smythe Division Champs, great times had by all. Including High-Fives by Kingston! That early 90's Kings team was a lot of fun to watch. I enjoy the Staples center, but sometimes if feels like "the thrill is gone." I enjoy Hockey none-the-less. It's really the only sport I follow. I attended quite a few Ontario California Reign games this season. Lot's of fights, really aggressive, cheap seats, expensive beer, new great times had by all.

Agreed. I sounded pretty judgmental there for a moment, didn't I. Yikes. Well, onward and upward! Oh, and since you respectfully replied to me, twice, during your extremely busy day/life...I'm telling everyone we are BFF's. :P Shine on you crazy Wheaton.

Now picture this. My brother, Captain of the Football team in high school class of 89', wedgie monger, popularity to the max...is now calling himself Geek. He owns some SW figures from Sideshow, attended Comic-Con, and is now Facebooking the world. One look at him and you know, this dude is not geek. He's a great guy, and I love him to death. But, it's like this exclusive club that just went public. I get what you are saying, and yes it has allowed me to show my true self a bit more. And, it will most likely fade. Be yourself, right? I'll try to worry less about him, and more about embracing the geek.

I think anyone who follows this blog, knows what to expect while following Twitter. What I have noticed is that a lot of the ol' Jocks are now going Geek. It makes me a bit defensive about it, but I see it happening a lot lately. Maybe it's the iPhone/Blackberry increase, or the affordability of laptops. Usually you can just tell who doesn't belong. Most of them have no filter on their mouth or keyboard.

Hilarious! I loved The State. Those guys still crack me up in everything they have done since then.

Wil, you and I are about one year apart, and that is pretty much how I remember 1988. I was there as well, singing, and talking about the show for days after. Proudly wearing my shirt with the Orange Megaphone on it, like I was in some secret society. "Nothing" was by far my favorite song on that album. Unfortunately, Violator was the album that pushed me away from Depeche. Which is sad, but I guess I had moved on when that album came out. Equally emotional was the Black Celebration tour. That was my first concert ever, and when the curtain fell during Black Celebration to show the band for the first time (at least to these eyes), that was the most emotional I had ever been at a concert. I still listen to KROQ from time to time. But, 1st Wave on Sirius/XM has been almost permanently programed on wife and my radio for a year. It's like taking a step back in time each drive we take. And your buddy Richard is broadcasting there as well. Good times!!

Day late and a buck short on this post. But, here is my $.02 on Frisbee. First of all, the Glow in the Dark Frisbee always seemed cool, but never had a lasting Glow effect enough to make it useful in the dark. But, do you remember in the 80's when they came out with the Glow Stick Frisbee's? You'd crack a glow stick and place it under the frisbee. Hours of fun on the beach at night. Good times.

Seriously, Wil. The kid just wants to go hang at the park. Why are you not picking him up already? It's a perfect time now. Star Wars is popular, Transformers is popular, comics are back in style...It's practically the 80's all over again! He's probably even got his own blog. :)

Comic-Con, where all unusual shirts must be worn. Funny how you bring that up though. If you're not in a costume, then the shirt is usually the next step in showing your geekness. I tend to make my own shirts. Which can be good and bad, depending on how the "geek/joke" is perceived. I'm going to create my own checklist to see how many threadless, one horse shy, and busted tees I see at comic-con.
