Can I come over and play Dragon Age?” My son asked me.

“Sure. I’m just going to watch more Land of the Lost tonight, so knock yourself out.” I said.

Ryan doesn’t have Dragon Age at his house, and when he was house sitting for me a few weeks ago, he fell in love with it the same way I did. He likes...

I always thought that was a great episode about the responsibilities of leadership and subordination.  I'll never forget Wesley telling his team member to complete the scan firmly and with authority and without a moment's hesitation the team mate says: "You got it." and gets to work.  It's been a life lesson for me in my professional life because it showed a subordinate speaking their mind about a leadership decision based on their own experience.  However, it also showed that when the word is given you, as the subordinate just get the job done.  As a leader, it also showed the importance of listening to your subordinates but also having the courage to stand by your decisions right or wrong.  Obviously, it doesn't always work out that way in real life but I think that is what makes the episode stand the test of time.

Sweet mother of fuck I'm watching the Cards Against Humanity episode of Tabletop right now. My man crush on you knows no limits.

Normally, I’m pretty good with words. At the moment, I’m not at my best, for reasons I hope are self evident. However, I’m going to do my best to remember someone who gave more to my life than he ever knew.

I never got to know Leonard Nimoy the way my fellow cast members did, so I can’t remember him in...

This is so awesome! Congratulations!

I've been telling people for years that I thought Wil Wheaton would be the greatest male avatar voice, EVER... :-) It's about time the listened up! 

This week, I talk a lot about my creative process, how I’ve found myself at a bit of a creative and existential crossroads, and what I’m doing about it.

    • * Radio Free Burrito doesn’t work as hard to earn its [EXPLICIT] tag as Memories of the Futurecast did, but it still manages to upset mom and get Twitter breakup messages from sensitive people...

Serial Mom is one of my favorite horror films ever.  

In a few hours, I’m heading to the theatre for the final rehearsal for tonight’s performance of The War of the Worlds, as part of the 2015 Sci-Fi Fest.

I have the great honor and privilege of playing Orson Welles as Professor Pierson. It’s a bit of a dream come true for me, because I’ve been listening to the infamous 1939...

Really enjoyed listening to that.  Thank you for letting us in on your process.

this sounds awesome

I wrote a long post on my blog about being attacked by a group of people I call The Stupidsphere, mostly to clarify who I believe these people are, and who they are not.

This comment, from reader Merus, is incredibly interesting to me:

“So I’ve been reading about cults for a thing (although cults, as we think of them, and not just harmless...

Sadly, my parents are in this realm.  Totally untrusting of any source other than FOX.  They aren't unintelligent, just frightened old folks.

I studied ancient cults as my special subject at university and I found it fascinating. I see elements of what he's describing in every aspect of human on human interaction though. Rather than disliking the ideas that people hold, we dislike the people themselves. Rather than believe in actual freedom of speech, we believe in a freedom to agree or to get the hell out.

It’s later than usual, but it’s not a year later! How about a new Radio Free Burrito!?

This week, I talked a lot about our secret vacation, and Anne joined me to share a story from her blog.

I think I’m finally getting the hang of mixing podcast audio in Audacity, largely thanks to the wiki.

This is a big deal for me. A few months ago, my friend introduced me to Marc Bernardin, who is a new editor for Playboy. My friend told me that Marc is helping bring back the kind of writing that Playboy had in the 70s and 80s, when it was held up next to Esquire, Vanity Fair, and Rolling Stone. They both thought that I...
