He is getting a "test". He could still blow it. I hope that doesn't happen. :)
2003-10-31 01:40:41 PM  
Congrats and good luck!

Is it for "I Love the 80's, TNG?"
2003-10-31 02:06:14 PM  
Congratulations and good luck. With that said.....

When you get the job.
You get your fanny perpendicular in there mister
and make them play some freakin videos.

Hey are they going to make you stand in one postion
do this long speech without moving, like they do with the hosts of the top 100 countdowns.

Now the artists at number 55 has a talented one armed drummer, recently back from their tour of Walmarts...
(talks for 5 minutes never even blinks)
2003-10-31 02:59:20 PM  
Awesome, Wil! Now get them to play music again. If I have to sit through another Behind the Music ...

[/can't change channels]
2003-10-31 03:14:49 PM  
Let's hope we don't have a repeat of the G4 debacle...
2003-10-31 03:19:42 PM  
Cool beans man. Hope they give you some good stuff to work with. I'm sure you can work a Fark reference in there someday... ;)
2003-10-31 03:27:46 PM

2003-10-31 03:30:13 PM

Congrats Wil!
2003-10-31 03:39:36 PM  
That's great, Wil! if you have to come to NYC for this, be sure to let me and Corporate Mofo (the other NYC Farkmod) know so we take you out.

I have VH-1 on satellite, but I'm not sure what channel it is...didn't they used to play music?

© congrats, Wil
2003-10-31 03:41:18 PM  
Behold, the power of Fark.
2003-10-31 03:41:59 PM  
There isn't enough hate in this forum so far.

I'll add some later.
2003-10-31 03:42:17 PM  

while you're on could you see if there is a possibility if VH1 is going to play any videos anymore?

I'll be happy just to get off the "I love the 80's-70-80's" back to back loops they run.
2003-10-31 03:42:19 PM  
That totally rocks, good luck Wil!
2003-10-31 03:43:50 PM  
Good job, Wil.

Get ready for the ultra-cool, super-apathetic farkers to post about how much they don't care about this.

Congrats Wil
2003-10-31 03:44:16 PM  
Congrats, Wil Wheaton, the official mascot of

2003-10-31 03:44:40 PM

Keeping fingers crossed through the test, just in case. Congrats, Wil!
2003-10-31 03:45:49 PM  
Don't fark it up, Wil. I may actually turn the TV to VH1 willingly for the first time in my life.

Oh, and let me modify the request for you to "play music" made earlier in the thread. I'd like to request that you "play good music".
2003-10-31 03:45:53 PM  
VH1 never returns my calls
2003-10-31 03:45:55 PM  
Go, Wil!
2003-10-31 03:46:40 PM  
congrats and good luck, Wil.

My suggestion, if you're interviewing somebody and they're not being very responsive: look down at your pants, hesitantly say "um..wait a minute" and pull out a giant leech.
2003-10-31 03:46:50 PM  
Good luck, Wil. Now that you're "in" can you get me a date with Shirley Manson?
2003-10-31 03:48:40 PM  
wow, VH1, you must be old
2003-10-31 03:48:42 PM  
Good luck,

break a piece off for me while you're out there.

Lucky bastard.

2003-10-31 03:48:55 PM  
No matter what happens in any of this, he still got to make out with Ashley Judd before her perfect face was ravaged by sun damage and ill-advised plastic surgery.

It's all downhill from here.

That said, this show sounds pretty cool - good luck, Wil!
2003-10-31 03:49:04 PM  

Just see it now "This next Mother Jesus Balls of a video..."

What does "VH1" stand for?

Oh and go kick some ass over there Wilbert

rtreynor How is pulling Courtney Love out of his trousers gonna help?
2003-10-31 03:50:15 PM  
Ant: I'm not claiming to be super cool or anything. I just couldn't care less about Wil getting some job. I don't understand all this Wil worship. I tried to read his website and was so totally bored, I had to stop. What is the big deal?
2003-10-31 03:50:25 PM  
I had no idea what this was about, so I hit the ww.n archives, congrats Wil, good luck to ya!
2003-10-31 03:50:28 PM  
I think Wil would make a great host for a TV show. And now I'm not just sucking up. That's like 90% true.
2003-10-31 03:50:29 PM  
Congrats Wil!
2003-10-31 03:50:45 PM  
cool, end the test with "Live long and prosper" that will blow them away

Obviously you could care less, otherwise you wouldn't have bothered to read and/or post in this thread at all

Check out the main page of wwdn - Smilin' Jay gets a shout.

I'm jealous of smilin' jay.

man..I am moronic and seem to post twice no matter what. In the old days you could just refresh to see new posts.

"I'm pretty sure my heat stops."


That's gotta hurt. Good Luck Wil.
2003-10-31 03:56:21 PM  
Good luck Wil, hope to see you on the TV.
