That will be a wonderful match for my 'Ashley Simpson 4 eva' tattoo!

/JK. You go, Wil.
 
2008-03-06 05:50:14 PM
So you really want more stalke... uh... "true fans"? I'd imagine you could troll for some at conventions (if those still happen).
 
2008-03-06 05:50:17 PM
Dunno about driving 200 miles to see you sing, but I'll buy your books, Wil.
 
2008-03-06 05:53:06 PM
Hmmm...I've been meaning to start selling my 'Wesley loves Data' fanfiction comic. Thanks for the idea!
 
2008-03-06 06:10:51 PM
I was never a huge fan of Space 1999 and I couldn't stand him with that Daggot.
 
2008-03-06 06:41:14 PM
I don't know about being a "True Fan", but I can be a "True Guy Who Gazes Silently Into Your House From Your Bushes Wearing a Burger King Mask".

It may not mean as much income for you, but it would be an impressive reminder of your internet clout.

But that Wilma Deering was a bit of alright, wasn't she!
 
2008-03-06 06:42:48 PM
Who's Eva?

Does his wife know?
 
2008-03-06 07:06:48 PM
Confounded! How could I already be beat to the "sure thing, who's Eva" joke!
 
2008-03-06 07:07:00 PM
Front page?!
 
2008-03-06 07:07:02 PM
Hmm. My wife usually doesn't let me make purchasing decisions without her input... wth. I'll buy one. Her b-day is coming up anyway.

Oh, what exactly do I receive in return for my investment? Sure, I'll get the shirt, but what else is in the deal for me?

Hey... why doesn't Wil have a merch section?

"Wil says don't be a dick" would look great on a shirt
 
2008-03-06 07:14:51 PM
Don't go sounding all like Oral Roberts on us, Wil.
 
2008-03-06 07:15:11 PM
I really don't get the Wil splooge gobbling most of fark seems to enjoy. Dude's a poor-to-mediocre actor and an above average writer.

sorta boring, rly.
 
2008-03-06 07:16:37 PM
In other news, there are still 999 Weigard Fever shirts in stock.

WOW, I don't know either one of you, but my scalp started to crawl...
 
2008-03-06 07:17:36 PM
There is no shame in flipping burgers, Wil.
 
2008-03-06 07:17:48 PM
I think I'd rather have a steaming cup of SARS, thanks though
 
2008-03-06 07:19:02 PM
He must not be very good. I make a living from my work, and I don't have any fans.

torpid_beaver: I really don't get the Wil splooge gobbling most of fark seems to enjoy. Dude's a poor-to-mediocre actor and an above average writer.

Seriously, have you ever partaken of his splooge? I think not.
 
2008-03-06 07:21:36 PM
My first piece of advice would be not to put food on your children, but in them.
 
2008-03-06 07:21:37 PM
I'd pay $49.95 for the PPV of a slap fight between Wil and Corey Feldman.

/I've bought 2 of books and enjoyed them thoroughly
//The world needs ditchdiggers too.
 
2008-03-06 07:21:43 PM
Maybe Wil was ftoo busy lying through the cosmos to learn about this, but there is a new lifestyle out there to help people get the necessities of life, its called a JOB!

Does watching the Nemesis deleted scene with you in it count as being a true fan? Hope you got paid for that cut cameo, Wil.
 
2008-03-06 07:23:20 PM
Used to be a "true fan" and even have signed copy of his first book.. but then he became a douche.
 
2008-03-06 07:24:18 PM
He can't possibly be serious. He's an actor, all he has to do is make a couple of movies or shows and he'll get paid big bucks.

Yet he's resorting to begging on his blog??
 
2008-03-06 07:25:11 PM
Wil wants to become an Eva pilot for Unit 04?
 
2008-03-06 07:32:56 PM
I felt so lousy while I tried to recover from sinus surgery.



Am I the only one that read that as "anus surgery"?

You're kidding... right?

/whatever the splooge gobbling version of nom nom nom is
 
2008-03-06 07:40:57 PM

I know you'd like to be known for your accomplishments beyond Wesley Crusher...

but personally I'd buy a t-shirt that has this on the back in quad color greyscale:


NUMBER 1 CRUSHER

i99.photobucket.com


With the first quote from his profile on the left chest.

I'd get so many chicks with that.
 
2008-03-06 07:41:09 PM
I dunno. He has his own tag, is all I'm saying.

/although, the way FarkTV's been ruining the amusing tag, tags aren't quite what they used to be...
 
2008-03-06 07:42:38 PM
This sounds like some kind of pyramid scheme. I'll call it WilWay.
 
2008-03-06 07:43:06 PM
It doesn't sound like he's begging. Sounds like he's sharing a concept he's working on for his business. Interesting idea, really. I'd love to find a way to get 1000 people to send me $10 a month. I'd love to make a living producing my art.
 
2008-03-06 07:43:11 PM
fark Wil and his douchey sideburns.
 
2008-03-06 07:43:58 PM
Aww that's so sweet you're worried about taking care of your family. I'm sure I'm not the only farkette who said "Awww~" to herself.

That being said: didn't you make a good amount for several years of ST:TNG? I always figured the amount made from being on a popular TV show for at least 5 years would be enough for a person to live off of for the rest of their life if they rationed out how much they spent a year, and invested the rest in the meantime.

Plus the royalties from any time the show is played in reruns which used to happen a heck of a lot on Spike TV.

Not that I wouldn't pay for your writing :) I love your style. Just wondering what happened to all that gold-pressed latinum they lined your trailer with.

Oh man.

Wil's one of us. He's not pretentious. He's not A-list. He's just another geek-boy, albeit one who happened to have an ultimate geek-boy job once in his life. Wil is each and every one of us who has ever been picked last for a sport and every victory for him is like a vicarious victory for us.

If you're hating on Wil Wheaton you're hating on everyone who's ever cheered when they've rolled a natural twenty.

Responsible people generally think about feeding and clothing their children before quitting their jobs to run off and join the circus. Or in this case, become an indie filmmaker.

No money for you!

I know I can make at LEAST a $100K selling my NAMBLA Data on Wheaton photos to The National Enquirer....
Not really.
Wil's a nice enough guy. He can have them for his own collection.
 
2008-03-06 07:51:48 PM
just wanted to say that I found fark thru wil's site.

sure, I lurked for YEARS before registering, but hey...

Ghastly:

I don't know what that is so I'll assume it's a metaphor for some lewd homosexual act.

shame on you

haha - another broke child actor who never bothered to learn any real skills!

Brad Renfro saw this as his future and took the easy way out.

It's a Dungeons & Dragons reference.
