Just a Hairpic


Wil Wheaton fascinates me. I've been listening to the audiobook version of his book, Just a Geek, for the past couple of days. It's interesting. The negotiation that exists between his current career and the looming behemoth that is Wesley Crusher, and how he pretty much bottomed out professionally and rebuilt himself with html and force of will. With two els. Keen stuff. And while I was never a big Star Trek guy, the series has cultural momentum, especially in my genre. Sounds like Hollywood works the same way New York works, and whatever success Wil has from this point forward will be on the back of some third way. That third way interests me, a kind of distributed success.

Oh, btw. Hair.

You could keep a mean stash of snacks in that hair (the ur-hair!).

"Cookies, anyone?"
