So I was watching the second half of Encounter at Farpoint today (sorry I'm not much of a TNG fan, and I don't think I've ever really seen the whole thing from beginning to end) while I did some editing, and what I want to know is this: Why haven't the people who put poor little Wil in that sweater been tried for crimes against humanity?

You know, Greg Brown has a song called "Jesus & Elvis" inspired by a chance black velvet encounter. I think he's going to have to update the song.

Aww, Wil, don't be silly. You have pants. Tiny, stretchy, disturbing pants, sure, but pants nonetheless.

Mitch Hedburg's already been mentioned, but I'm going to mention him anyway. Don't even TRY to act like I didn't buy that donut. I've got the documentation right here!

Very jealous of your nearness to the MST peeps. Should have a chance to fanboy at them, tell them about Manos: Rock Opera of Fate. New Millennium Theatre Company deserves the nod.

Cool report from what sounds like a cool con. I have a data point that indicates Jamie Bamber lives by the Wil Wheaton Credo: A friend of mine created and maintains the LJ Bamber_News community. Before DragonCon 2007, she'd contacted his representative hoping for a long-shot interview with him at the con. If I'm recalling correctly, there was some back and forth, but then the ball was most definitely dropped on his end. She boldly brought it up when she was getting his autograph at the Con, and he ended up giving her a 40-minute interview later on at the Con.

About 2 years ago . . . I can't remember why . . . I discovered that a search on the phrase "Cirque du Puree," at that time, landed on, in order, (1) Wikipedia, (2) My blog, (3) Your (pre-in exile) blog. I had just recently become addicted to THIS blog around that time, and it tickled me that you had seen Varekei a few days before I had, and you'd been as wowed and moved by it as I was. Anwyay, this excellent entry is also a happy bit of synchronicity as I've been contemplating my navel and writing in my blog, too. No particular point, other than adding to the general chorus of "thanks" and "well done."

Very groovy! Given the likes listed here, and forgive me if I'm teaching your Lego grandmother Crusher to suck eggs, you might like The Silvermen. Surfy/Psychobilly/Country. Plus Giant Robots featureed on their T-shirts.

because you can never have too much Internet Jesus while you're taking antibiotics with side effects that (rarely but severely) include confusion, hallucinations, and nightmares. The first time I went to Peru to do field work, the folks at the friendly neighborhood travel vaccination clinic were trying to convince me to get a course of anti-malarial drugs. (They were dubious about my claims that I was headed for one of the driest deserts on earth and therefore unlikely to run into any Anopheles.) They were reading off the lenghty list of side effects. "Psychotic break" didn't faze me, but "unusually vivid, often violent dreams" was a deal breaker. As my Aunt Flo (yes, I have a literal Aunt Flo) once said, "I go to the movies every night." Having just, finally, shaken a week-long headache of my own, I wish you luck.

Yours is the second review I've enjoyed hundreds of times more than I enjoyed the movie. I found the characters and story so completely unengaging that I couldn't ignore every sloppy, implausible plot point (and there are dozens; I'm a huge onster movie fan, and I'm willing to forgive a lot, but you've got to give me something).The spousal unit liked it well enough, though. For me, the highlight, by far, was the Ironman trailer.
