Wil, you ruled all on Leverage. Kobayashi Maru FTW!

I got the chance to meet and interview Charlie Duke, the CAPCOM for the Apollo 11 mission (Roger Twank..Tranquility we copy you on the ground. You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue here. We're breathing again. Thanks a lot!) Man, he had some stories to tell about that day, and his own moonwalk on Apollo 16. Here's the link. http://www.newstreamz.com/2009/04/08/apollo-moonwalker-comes-to-texas-state/ This was better than science fiction. It's science fact. We did it, and we need to not just go back, but go further. This was a great day for the whole species. And, not for nothing, but I once sent NASA a letter extolling the virtues of making me America's first child astronaut when I was 10, and how we would beat the Russians to that important milestone. They never got back to me, but I remain a fan.

Question to my fellow Austinites...Don't you think Wil could do a killer Master Pancake Theater? http://www.originalalamo.com/Signature.aspx?id=15 Funny how this turned into the Alamo Drafthouse love thread. As to the main point the problem is that theaters don't respect their audience anymore. That's why we have commercials and lameass "spot the coke" slides.

One of the many many reasons the Drafthouse rules. Going to other theaters now just seems unnatural.

I just saw this on TrekMovie.com. During the Q&A Frakes was asked what he would have done differently if he had directed the last film Star Trek Nemesis (which he had earlier joked ‘had died’). Spiner interjected, saying to the questioner “don’t you mean ‘in what ways would it have been better?’” Riker started off by saying "It would have been more Next Generation and less of that wonderful English actor Thomas Hardy…good actor." He then rattled off a list of changes he would have made " We would have seen the wedding. We would have seen the consummation of the wedding. Blue Skies! Trombone. Wil Wheaton!" He also yelled out to the crowd: “Data IS NOT DEAD! Data lives Man!” Cool.

I do tech support for an ISP and we've had that problem recently. AOL blocked everyone who has an account with us (several hundred thousand users) from sending any e-mail to AOL users. Their server is totally frakked for some reason.

Pick up Sonny Rollins-Live at the Village Vanguard on Blue Note records. It's two disks but it's worth it.

Seriously Wil, I'd feel bad if you went back to Rockville and wasted another year.
