I was just wondering when there'd be another! I'm pretty sure it was while I was listening to the Best Radio You Have Never Heard podcast, because Perry always begins each episode with a neat-o coolio sound clip. THANKS, Wil, from the AudioMusic Geek portion of your fan base. :)

The first thing I thought of was Al Franken's bit on SNL at the end of 1979 [paraphrased from hazy memory]: The "Me Decade" is over. The 80s will be the "Al Franken Decade." It's time for all of you to stop thinking about yourselves and start thinking about me, Al Franken. I guess that makes me old, too Mr. B. P.S. I searched The Youtube for a clip, but all I could find was Sen. Franken stuff.

Oh no oh no oh no oh no. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family. I only knew Ferris through your writing, but I loved her (and I'm not even a dog person).

I'm still giggling about the deliciously geeky phrase: "To close some tabs..." And I would love to attend a virtual conference/class about self-publishing.

My favorite post is a sentimental favorite in more than one sense. It was the first WWdN entry I ever read. I found it by accident when I googled the name of a local Talking Heads cover band called Houses in Motion. (They kick all kinds of ass, btw. If you're ever in Madison, Wisco be sure to check them out). The writing is classic Wil: Heartfelt, true and so real it almost hurts. Also? Totally sentimental. In my book, that's a good thing. I was never much of a sci-fi fan, so I missed most of Wil's TV career. But I was a HUGE fan of Four Seasons and Stand by Me. Turns out the person who was "Gordie" in my mind had grow'd up to be a writer. And a top notch one at that. Joy! Enough of my blather. Here's the link to Wil's Houses in Motion: It's been almost a year since Aunt Val died...

Sorry about the a$$holes. My worst concert experience was when someone puked on my shoes at a U2 concert in the 80s. Blech. (For the record, it was a GenX'r not a Boomer). Lo, Elvis does rock. He gives this old geezer hope for the next few decades. Have you heard his new Momofuku album*? Jenny Lewis is on it. I'm a super-ultra-mega EC fan from waaay back, but I only know who JL is b/c of your LastFM stream. So, thanks Wil for making me more "in the know" than I actually am. Rock on with your bad self, Sally J. *And by album, I mean v-i-n-y-l.

Any chance you'll make it up here for WisCon someday? We also know a thing or two about brewing beer...

Savage Chickens + Beer = my favorite one. Brought to you by the National Brewers Association, natch.

Wonderful, heartwarming post, Wil. I want you to be the official (paid!) spokesperson for Family Game Night. Who do I gotta talk to about that?

I stumbled onto a nifty remixed image today and thought ya'll might enjoy it. Elvis Costello, the king of geek rock, strikes a pose just for gaming fans.
