"I suck at Punch Out, but that's never stopped me from playing it." I haven't even finished reading your entry, but that line just hit me right in the gut. It'd be a great Zen motivational placard. Something like this, but with, uh, less, uh, MS Paint -- http://toothopolis.tumblr.com/post/13096098537/philosophy

And isn't everything more refreshing when imbibed from a Missile Command pint glass? (Don't think we didn't notice.)

... each six-pack of your forthcoming IPA could come with a generic-brand black crayon and a blank d20, with a little typed slip of paper that says, "... YOU know what to do."

Please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please PLEEEEEEEEASE name this beer "CRITICAL HIT." (As long as it's sufficiently hoppy to bear that name.) That is all. [PAUSE] No wait, that's not all. Can someone draw up a corresponding label for this brew?

When you mentioned the plunger on your coffee press... Dude, one word (repeated three times): AEROPRESS, AEROPRESS, AEROPRESS. http://www.aerobie.com/Products/aeropress_story.htm

Security Guard: Hey, kid -- one more thing. If you EVER set foot in this store again, you'll be spending Christmas in juvenile hall. Capisce? [Bart looks blank] Security Guard: Well, do you understand? Bart: Everything except "capisce". http://j.mp/9dTj4H ;]

ROCK THE HELL ON!!! Abso-lutely! Who dares wins -- even if the amount of Win is small and personal. For example: A few months ago, I'd just come back from getting my wisdom teeth pulled (top, both sides, oh, the pain of it all...) and I was messing around in MS Paint, drawing a silly little lo-tek doodle of a big toothy mouth. And I liked it. So I cut + pasted it into Irfanview (which I highly recommend), applied some blurring and sharpening, some contrast tweaks... and I started to like it more and more. So I dumped it to Cafepress -- http://www.cafepress.com/technogamy.353618194# -- and bought myself one. And here we are, together: http://toothopolis.tumblr.com/post/248791072/grin. Now, if I'd wanted to do something like this 10 years ago, I'd've had to own a frickin' MUG FACTORY. Or make one of those crappy mugs like I made for my grandmother in 1981, where they gave you a poorly-made mug with a clear plastic outer sleeve and you put photos under the sleeve and snap it shut and every time she drinks from it her Sanka leaks between the mug and the sleeve and ruins the photos and eventually she just stops pretending to love you... Hrm. Make things.

Ahhh... Doctor Whiskey. Practitioner of so many of the healing arts. Reliever of pain. Bringer of sweet nepenthe. Restorer of charisma. The Great Beautifier!!! (And who could forget bourbon... brownest of the brown liquors... What? You want me to drink you? But we're in the middle of a trial...) I was listening to your reading of Blue Light Special on the train yesterday morning, and everyone around me must've been wondering why in the hell I was grinning so wildly. Just remember that you've got the mojo -- we all do. [Roll Growing Pains end credit music.] And remember what Woody Allen, as Boris, says to his wife in Love and Death: "Well, I hate to say I told you so, but some men have it and some men don't. Fortunately, I have so much of it."

"Memories of the Futurecast takes the A train." Actually, it takes the F train from East Broadway to Rockefeller Center with me, every morning.

Those books bring many a tear to my eye. The tinyfont... my name calligraphed on the inside of the cover... the smell of spilled Coca Cola on hex paper... the looking-at-my-friend's-dad's-stack-of-Playboys-while-the-other-guys-are-rolling-up-their-characters... Such good time, it kills me kindly to think of them. I just learned today that my wonderful pregnant wife and I are having a boy!, and one of the first things that hit me was: I can't wait to take him through Queen of the Demonweb Pits. He's totally going to think all those coins at the end are REAL, man!, and then, like, they're going to EVAPORATE, and he's going to be like, WHA??? and we'll laugh and stuff, because he'll get lots of XP so it'll be OK. It gets into your blood, it does. PS: Would've been the same if we were having a girl, frankly.

Irrespective of whether you do a full audiobook version of Memories, I'm still readin' the damned thing in your voice. Can't help it. :] (Just think -- there are likely thousands of people out there who are doing internal impersonations of you while reading your books. How bizarre is that?)

Hm. The preview itself won't load in my browser -- apparently, the Internets can't cope with the massive burst of Wheatons* (*pronounced "wee-tahns," i.e., the subatomic particle emitted by us fanboys) right now. But I think it's avail on YT @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEjMjnHB4pY or on CBS @ http://www.cbs.com/primetime/big_bang_theory/video/?pid=2hqhq9nC1PB434lA5cvJ46av6jwrU3pw ...

As they say in the WooT world: IN FOR ONE. (And "if I like it" (heh -- read, "the exact moment I finish it"), surely, in for more as gifts.) gabu

Ach -- I thought the proclamation would relate to the imminent availability of Memories of the Future! DAMMIT! DADDY NEEDS TO FILL HIS READ-HOLE WITH DELICIOUS STORIES!!!!!!!!!!!! Feel better, and watch some Mighty Boosh while you're laying low. "But I'm in the mindset of an executioner now! I won't be able to sleep tonight! I'll be lying there twitching, Mrs. Harrison's going to go mental! This, my friends, is an outrage!" gabu
