My librarian in high school gave me a copy of The Book of the Dun Cow and told me to read it. It's been a long time since I read it and I'm pretty sure I missed some deeper meanings in the book, but one thing it did was turn me on to reading compelling stories. From that point on, I sought out well recommended books and I was never disappointed. I also read A Wrinkle in Time and loved it, and man, I just lost myself in sci-fi and fantasy. I absolutely have my librarian to thank for that.

Holy snap, seeing you on Fringe would have been RAWRsome. Fringe may be my favorite show on TV right now. Let's hope you get cast for a different part at some point.

As somebody who has recently adopted a dog rescued from a shelter before he was euthanized, I can sympathize. I dread the day it's my dog's time to go. In the meantime, I'll do what you did; love him, and make him part of my family. I feel for you Wil, my thoughts are with you today.

Will you come to my house and run a campaign? Please? I'll, uh, I'll give you... um... I got nothing, but OMG. You run an awesome game.

You were superb as Ted Kord. That was some excellent voice acting, for serious. "I said you could borrow it. BORR-OW." Haha. Really good stuff, Wil.

Awesome posts Wil, thanks. It's great to read such a comprehensive look behind the scenes. I hope you get more work like this because it's great to see you on screen. Not to e-slime or anything, but I have a lot of respect for you and it's just cool to watch you work, as well as read about it. Keep it up!

Dude, the anger definitely showed through when you were running away. When you chucked the baseball bat into the woods it was pretty obvious you (Floyd) were pissed. I liked that bit so much I rewound it and watched it again a couple times. You threw it so hard, it was just like... "God DAMMIT". Very nicely done Wil. And thanks for the extensive behind-the-scenes, I really enjoy reading it.

"listening to Boingo, Bow Wow Wow, The Smiths, and Depeche Mode puts me in an incredibly happy place" YES. Just... fucking yes.

"pretty much the coolest thing you'll see today" from the post below was wrong. This picture is the coolest thing I've seen today.

I once went to see Bela Fleck and the Flecktones in Manchester, New Hampshire. For the most part it was great but there was this one really drunk guy up front who was so bad that he actually made Vic Wooten stop playing in mid-bass solo. Bela asked the guy directly to be quiet so Vic could play. I was absolutely mortified. After the show I went up to shake hands with them and apologized for that guy, even though I had no idea who he was. On the other hand, I went to see The Fixx at the Pacific Amphitheater last year and the year before, and both times the crowd was really good. I had an issue once with one talky woman in the row in front of me but that only lasted for a couple minutes. I can only assume that because it was The Fixx, the crowd was really there to see The Fixx, not because it was trendy. The Fixx were awesome by the way - just incredible. One of the tightest bands I've ever seen live.

This inspired me to start writing on ficlets. I love the character limit idea, it's so good for spontaneous bursts of creative whatever. I've done three of them already today! Awesome. To the max.

I couldn't remember what else I had seen Gregory Itzin in so I looked him up on IMDB. Of course I had seen him on 24, I had just forgotten. But apparently Gregory has also been on episodes of ST: Voyager, ST: DS9 and Enterprise too. :D That sketch was great, really funny.

Massive props on the Princess Bride reference. There is no part of that movie I don't absolutely love. I also love it when you get "the big idea" seemingly out of nowhere and you have to scramble to get it down. You can go back to it later and it drops you right in the zone. It's really satisfying.

Wil, any chance you're coming back to Vegas at some point? Having recently moved here from SoCal, I won't be able to make it down there for any of your appearances. And I wish I could go to PAX, but it's not in the cards this year... so to speak. So, er, in conclusion, I'd like to know if you're going to rearrange your whole schedule just so I can say hi. <.
