Your delight when you realized this was a retooled "Tomb of Horrors," was awesome. I've never even played it and I was like HOLYSHITTOMBOFHORRORSMOTHERFUCKERS!!!

Dood! I started playing D&D about 6 months ago and just hit irontooth a few weeks ago! Put two arrows through his throat (after getting my legs broken). Awesome.

Finished. Wow. I don't want to kiss your ass TOO much, but the leach scene, the campfire, the final body scene... well done dude. Gonna watch again with the director's commentary.

Hey, do you have a calendar of upcoming stuff you'll be at? I'm gonna be back in CA early/mid August and would love to catch another reading if you're doing one.

Wil, I think it's wonderful the way you're raising your kids, and I'm taking notes (my son is 18 months old). I do however, think you can stop mentioning the lack of DNA you share with them. I noticed it a while ago but today's repost reminded me, and I don't think it's really necessary anymore. It doesn't matter. They're your sons and, to be truthful, they DO share your DNA. They have gained traits from you that will be passed on from generation to generation, mixing with that of others to create brand new people, all of whom will be a little part of you. You will be just as immortal as those of us who remixed ourselves with another person to create a wholly unique, yet completely derivative work. They're your kids. Everything else is semantics. Best, E

The idea of a Wil Wheaton/Westly Crusher face off blowing my mind. Like Arnold Schwarzenegger/Jack Slater in The Last Action Hero.

Have you heard about the massive Retcon they just did to Spider-Man? They took the last 20+ years of his story and threw it out the fucking window. I can't even begin to explain how bad it is. Check out his Wikipedia article if you're interested, it will boil your blood... if you give a shit about Spider-Man like I have since I was 5. If not, it's no big deal.

Amen. I also sent letters to both of my Senators yesterday. We too must get off our asses and do something.

Couldn't agree more on HEROES. Lost me early this season. Also, you need a big-ass RSS button on your page... can't find a way to put you into my reader.

PodShow has TONS of Old Time Radio shows, each with a different theme: SciFi, Mystery, Comedy, Detective, Horror, Suspense, Thrillers... all very good with major names like Rod Serling and Orson Wells, with adaptations from both stage plays and short stories. The Thrillers and Scifi are the best (for me), my favorite shows being Dimension X, X Minus One, and 2000 plus ("stories told in the future tense!!"). All have RSS feeds and HUGE back catalogues.

Starship Troopers. Forget the movie, there is no relation to the book. A true example of economy in writing (160+ pages) Think Platoon meets Starcraft meets Full Metal Jacket. Extreme detail, vivid characters, social parallels... I've read it 3 times in 5 years and I have to get back to it again soon.
