Have to admit I'm not sure what HP means unless you are refering to Hewlett Packard. I know you used the term before.

Hey Wil, I know this has nothing to do with you but... BRING MORE JOBS TO CALIFORNIA. I don't understand why so much filming goes down out of state.

1) It must be fun to be famous :( 2) Next time bring all of your 6 foot plus friends with you. The last time I saw someone well known (in Vegas) their body guard was 7 foot tall and about 300 pounds - LOL

Love it... Sounds like the Good Samaritan story just cast in a slightly different light.

One thing I always found interesting... 1) People on vacation are always on that vacation high where they are super friendly 3) People who drop off at Fed Ex or the Dry Cleaners, etc. are kind of exactly the opposite. In their own little world and just trying to get to the next place. Almost robotic sometimes - LOL

I think you should have used "Cruel to be kind" (or in the right manner). Of course isnt that simply restating the Golden Rule? From what I have read about Hollywood that is pretty much par for the course. You should read Jim Breuers book about SNL and Hollywood. He pretty much spells it out in there.

I love the comment about 1987. Yeah there have been SOME good bands since then... but music started nose diving some time after 1985.

I like the Ice Cream man part. I have only heard one down here maybe once in the last 10 years. Had a question about Wil Wheaton the brand. Why do you have one tag line for Twitter and one for your blog? The I'm just a guy.. bit is pretty clever and creative. The one on the blog comes off as more defensive. Have you ever thought of changing it (honest question)

Hey Man, There have been some cool speakers in the OC. Seth Godin - Chris Brogan - Scott Culbertson and Gary Vaynerchuk have addresed both marketing and Twitter based marketing efforts in their books. Did you know Gary mentions your Twitter marketing in his book?

Atta Boy Wil! I know some people will scream when things go wrong and never say thanks when things go right. Thanks for not being THAT guy ;)

Three posts I haven't seen from you in 2011: 1) Any type of post on WSOP (do you still have friends that play)? 2) Any post on E3 (last day was today) 3) Any post on the beer garden event that was in San Diego in the past. It seems you always get a positive reaction no matter what you post on here. For a while you were posting about Poker Stars and your online tournament or live play. I kind of had the impression that X amount of your followers were poker players. Maybe just X Men (I mean Yes Men..Yes people?) LOL

A couple of ideas that hit me afterwards... 1) Fed Ex has Saturday delivery but its way expensive. 2) You can flag your delivery for pick up at the station and ship it a week in advance. 3) I am asumming you could probably do the same thing at the hotel. One final note as I am reading this 50 times in here. Whether it UPS, Fed Ex, Starbucks, etc. The minute anyone rolls out the F word you will not be taken seriously by another business. If you want to be repsonded to seriously you have to stay in BUSINESS mode the whole time. Other wise you (meaning anyone) will come off as just someone off the street and not a serious potential business loss. To flip the coin the other way around blogs and Twitter are the PERFECT place to complain if you have an issue. Pretty much the entire markteing community is focusing on Twitter as a means to get corporate America's attention.

Hey Wil, 1) I pretty much always use FED EX for shipping although I receive plenty of packages from UPS 2) I try to always use FED EX 3 day because its cheaper (Fed Ex and UPS both don't count Saturdays) 3) If INGRAM carries any of your books we could always ship them for you (I think we sent a book that you gave away in 2007 or something... LOL) One final note if its not overnight FED EX lets you ship between 5 and 8PM which is kind of nice.

Do you mean don't be negative towards others or are you hoping that no one is negative towards you? WW quote - "Don't Be A Dick" gives me a place to begin every day in my real life.

Two alternatives... 1) Move north of Agoura Hills or TO 2) Move South to Orange County or even North San Diego County. Plenty of Hollywood royalty have lived in OC including the Nelson's (Ozzie and Harriet) as well as John Wayne. And let's not forget Kobe B.

A few things I have noticed over the last few years... 1) That you dont always blog about local events (i.e. Brush Fires - local sports). 2) You dont always blog about things you have been connected to in the past (i.e. WSOP and the end of online poker). 3) You sometimes stay on the same topic for quite a while - i.e. gaming The fact that you blog as much as you do is pretty impressive though.

Hey Wil, I know you were a member of Team Poker Stars four or five years ago. 1) I remember a post you made about playing poker in Vegas 2) I found a post recently about you playing poker with Jason Alexander 3) You also posted about experiencing the World Series of Poker. Any thoughts about real money being banned at Full Tilt Poker and Poker Stars? Do you still play live at all?

BTW... I know you said you havent been keeping up on it but they just turned off Full Tilt Poker and Poker Stars across the United States.

A) You have a rabid fanbase that whole heartedly support pretty much anything you do. B) This is Capitalist America so... get over it already - LOL I'm sure you get paid well for TV and Movies. What's the diff?

So can you actually rank the Top 10 characters you have played like a Top 10 Album list or would that be too hard to do?

These are the types of posts I really like. Sorry but my eyes glaze over when you talk about D&D. But I'm sure other people are the same way when you talk about poker ;) LOL BTW - Do you have an updated appearance schedule for 2011?
