Today, I have my first audition in ... a year? 18 months? Something like that. It's in 2 hours, and I've been preparing the scenes all day. It's been super fun to break the sides down, try out different intentions and doable actions, and despite my best efforts, now I kind of want to do this role, because I think it would be...

Good Luck!

This was on my Tumblr thing.

A neat human on Tumblr said >>> Hi! I just went 48 hours without a drink and I'm really proud of myself and wanted to tell someone. Thanks for being so open about your sobriety, it's a big inspiration for me and I'm sure for many others.

So I said:

Hey way to go! Do you...

I read this when you posted on Facebook and it was perfectly timed... the reminder that drinks should be when I wanted it, not when I "need" it was greatly appreciated.

Sundays between 10 a.m. and midnight there is always this program in the antyradio with this guy who was addicted to alc telling stories and trying to help other people. I hear to him sometimes and I learn a lot about the life. So if somebody from Poland likes to get advice and/or learn something listen to that guy, he is really good.

All this grunge and riot grrl I've been listening to has knocked loose a memory that's kind of shameful and regrettable, and even though this probably doesn't matter to anyone (least of all the potentially-offended parties), it bothers me, so if you'll indulge me for a moment...

When I was a teenager, I loved punk and rap, because both forms of...

I really love this, thank you for owning up to it and doing better
  1. So I made this ridiculous T-shirt that may appeal to some of you.

Get it? A Flock of Seagals? Anyone? Hello?

It's available for one more week, and then it's gone forever, so if you want one, get on that, man!

That is awesome. Amazing. Spectacular! I wish I thought of it. 😃

It’s warm and windy in the valley today. The sun feels so good on my skin, as the breeze swirls little cyclones of leaves and trash against the buildings I’m walking past. A palm frond waves at me as I pass. It is barely clinging to the trunk of its tree, and will probably come down with the first real gust that hits...

please send some warmth up Canada way... we had more snow yesterday... 6 months of snow is too much... I too am fearing for your country and that is comes back to a caring, loving community

It's like I'm right there with you! I really enjoyed reading that. Thanks!
  1. This was written and posted on my blog in 2009, which feels like a lifetime ago.

I can't recall exactly how it came up, but I recently mentioned that I'd once worked in a movie with Ron Jeremy. This revelation was met with some interest and a look that sort of goes like this: O_o so I thought it would make an entertaining...

So Friday, and I wanted to be creative and to feel productive, but I’m giving my writing brain a few days off because it’s been working really hard for a long time and it needs to recharge.
Luckily for me, my performer brain was inspired to do another pulp fiction magazine audiobook narration, because it was so much fun the last time I...

t was … not the best night of sleep I’ve ever had. I got into bed around midnight, and almost immediately kept waking up, coughing and gasping for breath, as my sinuses poured phlegm and something that can best be compared to a non-Newtonian fluid down my throat while I slept.

Around 3, I got out of bed and walked out of the room, so...

It’s good to hear you coming out of it, I hope you continue in that direction
bromopar:
Hearing you say you're feeling better gives me hope.  Been in a similar episode myself since the holidays.  Sadly, for me there is no end in sight but perhaps, sooner than I know it there will be.  Just gotta keep at it.  Little by little.  Any progress is good progress I always say to my wife.  It's time I heeded my own advice.
From my Tumblr thing:
Question: "Hey Wil! Growing up, Stand By Me was an incredibly meaningful and important movie for me and still is to this day. I was curious to know what kind of an experience you had while making this movie. Was it a positive experience or was it more akin to the shitty child actor experiences your talked about before? I'd...

this is so awesome and I read this on your Tumblr (my profile now deleted) I am so sorry that there were this awful times you had.
wizard0:
Glad that Stand By Me was a good experience for you.  It has always been one of my favorites.  Except that bloodsucker scene.  I still don't like walking through swamps.

I feel like I should be doing more, making more — hell, making anything — and generally being more productive.

But I just have nothing. No motivation. No ideas. No compulsion to create. I keep feeling like I’m just wasting time, just keeping my head down and hoping that today will be better than the day before and that this string of days will come to...

@wilwheaton  First off who is telling you this? Tell those demons to fuck off already! As long as you are happy why stress the rest? As long as you can find joy in each day you ARE living life. Do not let anyone define ‘living life’ or ‘happiness’ for you.  We all go through times where we are not motivated and simply do not feel or value or worth. It’s exhausting and defeating. This is our mind playing a sick twisted trick on us. Enjoy the moments of silence in your mind because when you finally feel at peace the ideas and projects will flood in.  Age only make us wiser and brighter embrace the changes and dare I say 🤔 live your age! You’re not dead until you are dead, find the moments in each day that give you joy, the moments that make you smile and when that doesn’t work, roll through the motions. Do not worry if others will notice, if they will be upset, offended or what they will think. Do not let the thoughts of what others might think, say or do influence you.  Remember when you are feeling blocked or down, let it out. Write whatever comes to your mind even when its nothing but negative thoughts trying to keep you down. Take those negative thoughts and burn them! Watch the fire burn your depression and anxiety. Jump in some water and focus on the feeling and let the water move you. Then you begin again until there is nothing left to say. Easier said than done, I know. You have an entire community behind you that understands, hang in there and feel better. Much love 😘

I'm feeling you right now. I'm just lost is this mental black space right now. I know the cause, but it feels like the way out is beyond me right now. But together we stand, together we back each other up til we fight through the muck

Green Day's American Idiot was trenchant and relevant when it was released in 2004. It's still a great album that holds up entirely on its

Agreed with both you and @leighgabriel. It's actually scary how a few other politic heavy bands and albums are as if not more relevant than they were 10 or 20 years ago. Dude. I. Don't know.
