I want to say first of all, that I like you Zachary. You're a good actor and my limited knowledge of you says, an intelligent, nice guy. But I think that your participation in this video was misguided to a degree that chills the blood of observers who have educated themselves to the plight of women, in this country and others, who still suffer unimaginable horrors at the hands of not just violent men, but an entire disrespectful and archaic mindset that suggests women still are property, still are men's "bitches", to borrow a word from this spoof you seem to think of as a harmless piece of fluff. I wrote in part at a forum hangout, that on the one hand, not knowing the origins or intentions of the film, my first reading of it is that "it works as a completely humorless backlash against violence to women. That men who play with guns in such a cavalier, dangerous way and disrespect women are the hugest dicks in the world. But we already know that and there are other ways to make that point." Much better ways. My second reading of what I watched will remain unsaid. Think about it Zachary. There is a fine line between pointed irony, scathing satire, and a sophomoric spoof that comes off as deeply disturbing. I can only hope your only connection to this was acting in something you viewed as a lark. You may have strong feelings about this being harmless and you have every right to your opinion, as do I, because respect is a two-way street.

Zachary, it's obvious you all put everything you had into the film, so blowing off steam and living it up must be exhilarating. Speaking of exhilarating, surely you've heard about this: http://www.icelebz.com/movies/news/nasa_to_screen_star_trek_in_space/ I'm so jealous.

I give it forty eight billion stars for the "secret love appendage" bit alone; the rest is gravy. Really savory, melt in your mouth gravy. My DVD is in the mails I guess - have no doubt it will also be dripping gravy goodness (hope it doesn't short out my DVD player).

I would like to review this book.

It must be hard to be articulate impromptorily (I think I made a new word) and you did a great job with the subject brought up. Criminal Minds is a favorite show of mine (love the police procedural stuff). But it's not just that, it's the varied personalities of the characters that gets me. I absolutely love that, not only will I get to see you act again, the show provided you with rejuvenation and inspiration. How lucky are we? Lots.

Wil, I haven't been by in awhile but I just starting toying with Twitter and saw this msg from Comic-Con: "wilw - Dear Hollywood douchebags: the middle of the fucking aisle is not the best place to stop and tell each other how great you are." I had a bad day today and you made it better. I've been to the Con once and I know how crowded and irritating it is. Thanks again and have fun.

Hey, Wil Wheaton. I'm a "friend" of William Shatner's at MySpace and I got a bulletin from him today that it was your birthday. Many happy returns, Wil. I hope your birthday has been fantastic so far. I have always enjoyed your blogs so much, your wit, and your intelligence. Damn, if I'd known you were coming to Comic-Con, I would have made an effort since I live in San Diego! Well, next year perhaps. My best, Tonya
