I believe that Wil mentioned being a son in the pre-"Just a Geek" as a book years, when he talked about an injury his dad suffered while surfing. Yep, found one of the posts: http://www.wilwheaton.net/2001/07/i_just_got_back_from.php

@Andrew, @Wil: Ah, I see... well in that case, do you mind if I link to this entry and quote it on MMO?

For everyone else who hasn't been following up on this news, I've done a series of (little-read) blog posts about these negotiations since I started writing for Movie Make-out.com this summer, and the first post I did is here: http://www.moviemake-out.com/2008/07/11/the-latest-on-the-sagamptp-contract-negotiations I know that none of the MMO regulars are reading these posts, and yet I still keep writing about them because it's important. @Wil: Is it cool if I hijack some of your letter to add to my post from today?

There are several things going on here: 1) Wil has had enough bad experiences with fursuiters to have a distaste of the fandom. 2) A fandom (or group) is as bad as its most negative aspects. 3) In the eyes of everyone who is not a fan, there's something wrong with every aspect of fandom. 4) Wil has every right to hold personal opinions that may not be the same as our own because he's a human, not a figurehead. 5) It's always very disappointing when someone you look up to doesn't share your beliefs, but as long as they don't begrudge you the right to have that opinion it's okay. I keep thinking about Dave Sim, and how he's misogynistic and has gone completely off the rails here and there but at the same time, you can't deny that the earlier volumes of Cerebus were some of the best damn stuff around. Or how Harlan Ellison's sarcastic apology after grabbing Connie Willis' breast on stage during a convention doesn't mean he's not a great writer; he's just an ass. Or how William Fucking Shatner is doing the best work of his career in "Boston Legal" and he's still WILLIAM FUCKING SHATNER. Outraged furryfen, I leave you with a comic strip from XKCD that can help explain how other fans can get along with you easier better than I can: http://www.xkcd.com/471

Gyah. Yeah, that darkness you talk about with Erica the casting associate? I felt that in the show. It was pretty palpable. Can't wait to read the rest of the story, which I must say is much better than William "Why Do You Look Like an Older, Beaten Up Captain Mal?" Mapother.

Just finished watching it (East Coast!) and I have to say that little move you played on the dude who came into your office after the FBI guy left was very cool. A little petulant, a little "go away and let me play with my toys!" Very much in keeping with what the main cast said was the profile and dude. You nailed it. Also, the part where you're taunting Robin Lively's character? Seriously chilling, and made me shiver. Very glad you didn't over do the creepy because because it was all about rage and I think I like seeing you rage about. A+ Would see again.

I am very curious to read the next bits of this interview because having just read that you rarely grant interviews and that I am now part of the select few journalists to whom you have granted an interview makes me feel pretty damn good. However, I do wonder if you will ever talk about the TOKYOPOP contracts and how you feel about them as a writer. Don't know what I'm talking about? Check out this link to get you started: http://forums.comicbookresources.com/showthread.php?t=86408 Alas, the best stuff from comic book artist/creator Lea Hernandez isn't available at this posting because LiveJournal's down for emergency maintenance.

You know, a friend of mine posted about the Book and a Beer event in her LJ, and I got all excited and I'm all, "DUDE, I CAN TOTALLY GET TO DC BY TRAIN AND THEN TAKE THE METRO OUT TO A STATION WHERE SOMEONE CAN PICK ME UP AND WE CAN ALL MEET UP THERE AND..." And then I remembered that we'd switched coasts and she lives in San Diego now and I'm in NYC. But hey! Speaking of NYC, I'm the director of publicity for a tri-state area (NY/NJ/CT) anime convention and if your speaking rates are reasonable, I could try and make a case for inviting you to the con. Do you have a special email address for con organizers to contact you at?

*sigh* This is what sucks about a) living on the East Coast, and b) having been in a movie theater to watch Beowulf when the hardback sale went on. I even set an alarm on my phone when the sale started, and I believe it went off (on vibrate, of course) when Beowulf was getting it on with Angelina Jolie--which is somewhat oddly appropriate. I'm a little sad that I won't be able to have the limited, signed, hardback edition of THDOOL, but when I get paid this week, I'm definitely buying the paperback for myself because I've chosen to ask all my relatives to buy toys for Child's Play instead of giving me Christmas gifts. Only... I kinda want it signed, too. I know I owe you a pint from way back when I interviewed you for Sequential Tart and gave you one of your first online reviews for Just a Geek... is there any chance I can shout you a round between December 20 and December 26 when I go home to SoCal for Christmas?

Andrew: Good call on "Lying in Odessa." It's the short story that has started my poker journey. Can't wait to hear hardcover book news!

Here's a suggestion to all the frustrated folks overseas (but not in Canada) who want to get Wil's soft cover book. What you should do is club together and place a special order with your local, friendly, independent bookstore. That way Wil gets to ship a lot of books overseas all at once and can say something like his book's sold out in Europe, you all get your hands on HDOOL, and the store might order some extra for some other customers who wander in and want to read that awesome book by Wil Wheaton. Everybody wins!

I'm currently still in my pre-domesticated life, which means I can do things like randomly accept an impromptu invite to a party for the anniversary of the Museum of Sex, or when a friend calls me and asks to hang out at 11 pm, we can karaoke till we close the bar at 4 am, and then I wind up sleeping past my stop on the subway to wake up miles from home and close to 6 am and also at least a mile past the nearest bank that doesn't charge an ATM fee, because I don't want to pay those fees because I'm limping into payday... Um, I had a point right? Right, well, my point is that even with all my crazy escapades, I wish I were as blissfully and joyfully domesticated as you are, Wil.
