Oh, and just curious, the new module on the ISS; Serenity or Colbert? Where do you stand?

Wil, I've been reading your stuff for a long time, I fondly remember the old site, hell I've even seen some of the geocities stuff. What I think this LA Daily column proves it that; first off you have your priorities straight, second you aren't a decent blog writer, or a notable columnist, or any other kind of [qualification]/[type]/writer. You are simply a really damn fine writer. If that's the best (worst) you can come up with for your epic fail, then I know I'm going to going to be enjoying what you do for quite some time. Take a deep breath, have a pint of Guinness, and enjoy some time with your family. Excelsior!

Hurm. Pandora? Slacker? We here in Canada know not of these things you speak. Bummer.

As much as Bruce Campbell rocks, his geek cred isn't on the same planet as yours. And while this is all in good fun, and shouldn't be taken too seriously, isn't it a bit of a stretch to pit a fictional character against a dead person (Hermione vs. Sagan), or for that matter a living person against a character they themselves played? In any case, good fun, and hey kinda cool to think that I as a Canadian might have some small effect on the appointment of someone to such an important position in the US. Gruvy. And yeah, "get crushered" - awesome. Methinks you've read a bit of Spider Robinson at some point.

Happiest of happy happiness to you and your family Wil. I'm having a low key day myself, but my best friend just showed up with the best gift of all; a home baked strawberry rhubarb pie! Heaven! That and a day long Top Gear marathon and I'm set! All the best, Wick

Thanks Wil, nice post. An hour and a half of my day just vaporized.

My experience was different, and the same. You nailed it Wil. I have to admit I'm crying, Gary's influence on my life was/is monumental. Thank you so much for the best and most appropriate eulogy he could hope for. Fail saving roll. Lament.

Killer. I love the take on the Soviet propaganda style, though I'm not sure what that's actually called. Really a great job. It might be really cool to see some other classic characters/games get a similar treatment: Master Chief, Gordon Freeman, Joust... I'm trying to imagine how it might be done with Pac-Man. Any other suggestions? On another note Wil, how does surfing (the net) fit in with Operation Do Absolutely Nothing But Watch TV And Sleep? In any case I really do hope you're feeling better soon. That Guinness is gonna taste soooooo goooood.

With all the crap coming out of your head, perhaps it would be a good time to watch "The Stuff". Then again, maybe not...

OK, I think we're all agreed, there has to be a "Don't be a dick" shirt. However I really believe there is a certain group in your readership, myself included, who would proudly wear something with "Jack Thompson can suck my balls" on it. I for one would buy the shirt AND the mug. And the bumper sticker. Even though I don't own a car. With the clown sweater picture. Cause it's creepy.

Finally an answer to the question: Wil Wheaton watches the Watchmen.

Anyone remember when the labels used to pay radio to play the songs? Payola they used to call it. Now you kids get offa my lawn.

Wil, Have an absolute gas. For those of us who aren't able to make it to the event, perhaps you might post your hawesome speech at some point? Cheers

And yeah I agree with Chris about the Squad Leader, it take a bit more of a time commitment, but man it's a great game. I have an extra copy of the ASL rules along with the first 4 or 5 modules. You want 'em Wil and they're yours. My gift to you for all the great writing.

Sticking with Chris' "not of the fantasy" theme for a minute; if you've only got 30 - 45 minutes - OGRE. If you've got an hour or so - GEV. Beer and pretzel gaming at it's best for the grognard-lite crowd. But to answer the original question; Twilight Imperium would be my choice, and I don't have to tell you why. You can't make me.

Well, they do say "Hard work often pays off after time, but laziness always pays off now." And it's funny, I don't feel like I'm flocking...

Another Canuck chiming in: I'll see your Bird & Diz on the grass in the back yard and raise you a Nina Simone singing "I Want a Little Sugar In My Bowl" in front of a roaring fire. That and the L.A. Kings certainly aren't making the playoffs this year.

Wil, Memories of my dogs waking with me and walking me to my morning coffee are among my favourites. Thank you so much for reminding me.

First paragraph made me laugh. And made me think of "Crush, Crumble and Chomp". Whoops, guess I kinda dated myself there...

You know, I think I'd actually be willing to pay you to do recaps like that for a few other movies. Perhaps you could start with Uwe Boll's works...
