As I read I found myself thinking, "Damn, I've been reading Wil for a loooong time" because I remember your pre-exile days. Your posts encouraged me to start my own blog. It took a few months to get the courage to start as well as to stop over-thinking it, but I've been blogging for over 7 years now. Thanks. :)

Well, I wasn't named "Batman" but it was my first word. No doubt I have my brother* to thank for that since he used to run around singing the TV show's theme song all the time. *Somehow I don't feel beholden to call him my 'big brother' while he prefers to call me his 'little sister.'

I'm reading Astonishing X-Men: Gifted right now. Seriously gorgeous art and Joss Whedon= Win. I haven't read all that many comics/graphic novels but Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8 and Ghost in the Shell pulled me in. I'm keeping an eye out for other things I might like. The Five Fists of Science sounds great. I'll have to look for it.

Silly and awesome way to learn a few things. Loved it, Wil!

It's weird, I was home sick from school that day too. But I saw it live and was the one who told my mom about it.

Hey Wil, It's not exactly a gamer's workout guide, but there is "The Walk to Rivendell and Beyond" which breaks down all the travels in The Lord of the Rings to the miles the characters traversed: http://home.insightbb.com/~eowynchallenge/Walk/walk.html There are milestones for the journey and some calculators for tracking calories and such as well: http://home.insightbb.com/~eowynchallenge/Tools/tools.html

A few years ago, I saw Charo perform live at a state fair and really enjoyed her performance. She may come off kooky to some, but she really does have presence. That video reminded me of how she throws herself into what she's doing, and how I respect that.

ZOMG! Wesley as The Doctor-- that is hilarious and abso-freakin-lutely awesome! I've always wanted a sonic screwdriver. Not a hunk of plastic with flashing lights and a pen but one that really works! :)

I really enjoyed this series of posts, Wil. I played a little D&D in middle school with my older bro and his friends. If we'd had a DM like you, I might have kept up with it. I was pretty shy and intimidated by playing with guys who knew the game a lot better and were all a few years older.

It hadn't occurred to me either until he brought it up. That conversation was a lovely mix of scifi references.

You just reminded me of when I discovered my dentist is a scifi geek too. He's been watching BSG on DVD, so he's always half a season or more behind me. I despise spoilers with a fiery passion, so I'm always careful about what I say to him, but I wish he'd catch the frak up already! ;)

Did you see the Battlestar Galactica toaster? I thought that was pretty awesome. It used to be on the NBC/Universal store site, but I don't see it there now. There are some pics here.

I couldn't have asked for a better photo (and caption!) on my birthday. Thanks, Wil!

I totally felt the cram-it-all-in-in-12-minutes urgency as I was reading which made me laugh.

I'm glad to hear your recovery is coming along well, Wil. I've been thinking of you this week. Now, get back to that tv! (Ghost in the Shell on Adult Swim is all kinds of awesome.)

Hmm, I thought Chuck became pretty repetitive and annoying after a few episodes. Pushing Daisies is where the good tv's at, imo. Except for Maya who I want to kill and Sylar who ought to be dead, I've been mostly enjoying Heroes this season. (Ok, I'd be happier if Peter and his bro were dead too.) Kristen Bell has me coming back to assuage my Veronica Mars withdrawal.

That is pretty mind blowing. His theory makes more sense to me than most other explanations of the universe I've heard.

Thanks, that's my kind of review. I do my best to avoid the ones overrun with plot synopses. They drive me nuts! Yours had just what I wanted to know.
