Play for today

To everyone who took a moment of their time and sent positive energy to Bob and his daughter in Iowa: Thank you. There are so many comments in that entry, and so much positive energy…someone commented, quite rightly, that if more people would take a moment out of their day to focus on the positive in life, and share that happiness with others, we’d live in a much better world. Thank you all for making a difference. I mean it.
Haven’t heard back from Bob, yet, but when I do, I’ll be sure to let everyone know how Katie did.
Today, my friend Kevin and I went down to sixspace to get a closer look at the Glen E. Friedman show, because it closes on Saturday, and have lunch with my friend Sean, who co-owns the gallery. It was awesome. The art scene in Los Angeles has come a long way in the last 5 years, and Sean and Caryn’s gallery is set to be one of the leading galleries in the city. I’m really excited for them, and I can’t wait to go see their next show.
Also, while googling for links to put into yesterday’s entry, I stumbled onto this review of “python,” which would be the worst movie I ever did, if “The Curse” didn’t exist. I just classified it as a “pay the bills while dressed up like a punk rocker” movie, but for some reason, they actually liked it, and gave it a “B-.”
Be gentle.
UPDATE:Some of you masochists have actually talked about wanting to see this movie. Here’s an Amazon link. If you really need to see this POS, and you get it from this link, I’ll get twenty-five cents. Which is twenty-four cents more than they spent on the snake. 😉

  1. This was a Consumer Review on the “Python” page:
    Reviewer: big-f-gee from cape coral, fl USA
    “….If you are like me and watched STAR TREK: Next Generation, you need to see this film. Wesley Crusher gets what he had coming to him.”

  2. Hey Wil, at least you weren’t in Anaconda. I never saw Python but figure it can’t be worse. That review is hilarious. Now I want to see the film.
    P.S.-Belated mojo to the little girl and her family.

  3. Wil,
    You do not look like a complete dork. Stop thinking those thoughts right now! Remember, what you think about, you bring about. Talk positive to yourself. Think about this, would you call your friend a dork? Why would you say such a mean thing to yourself when you would never say a such a mean thing to your friends!
    You’re NOT a dork! It’s a great picture!

  4. The Curse would have been so much cooler if you’d had purple hair and a nipple ring :)
    Looks like you had a great time doing the animation recording. I imagine doing cartoon voices is quite fun.

  5. Rene’e asked for a listing of Wil’s work…You can find a listing of Wil Wheaton’s acting credits,story synopsis,and even purchase movies @ in Wil’s name in the search box and go from there.

  6. Now I have to rent Python simply because it looks funny. Apparently I’m on the Six Degrees of Wil Wheaton radar with that movie. In the summer my friend was a PA on a film that Casper was in. It’s not like they were friends or anything but I think she saw him a few times and spoke to him on the phone occasionally. Does that even count as a degree?

  7. Hey Wil, I loved Python, you were great
    The snake sucked
    and Unfortunately you died and didn’t make it to Pythons 2 starring none other then the great William Zabka
    Which was made for the Sci-fi network and drops on DVD on January 21st 2003.
    Go Zabka!

  8. All this talk of Python has me intrigued, so I put it at #1 in my Netflix queue. I mean, purple hair and a nipple ring – this I gotta see. I’m already laughing at it. Woo. Getting it from Netflix (which, unfortunately [or maybe not so much], doesn’t have The Curse) makes it feel like I’m not actually paying for it, which makes me feel better (sorry, Wil).
    Cool that someone else mentioned the Cure reference.

  9. Okay, I have this idea for a really *great* horror movie…
    There’s this actor guy who was in a really crappy B movie as a kid. He hates it so much he locates everyone who ever bought a video of it, and kills them, but not before getting them to destroy the video while he watches with an evil glint in his eye. But he gets caught before every copy is accounted for, and as his punishment he is forced to watch it all day for the rest of his life.
    Wil could play the lead role…

  10. Wil,
    I actually liked “Python”. Sure it was cheesy, shlocky pap with one of the least convincing CGI snakes I have ever seen (and I’ve seen em all, I love cheapo horror movies), but a lot of the character interaction was really quite fun, and more interesting than the alledged plot, and I thought that you, Wil Wheaton, should have had star billing. I loved your character, especially the “Dude, you woke me up for a snake?” line.
    And the blue hair.
    Definately a six pack and curry movie.
    I also want to see “The Curse”. Not, Im afraid to say, because Wil is in it, but because its an adaption of the HP Lovecraft weird tale “The Dunwich Horror”, and I’m a devoted Lovecraft fan, and am trying to get to see all of the Lovecraft inspired movies.
    Cthulhu fhtagn!

  11. Whoops, my mistake. It wasn’t “The Dunwich Horror” at all, it was the “Colour Out of Space”.
    Huh, there goes my Cthulhu Credibility.

  12. i LOVED “battlefield earth”…it was a truly awful film…but in a good way…john travolta gave a fantastic, over the top, shatnerian performance…this film is one to be watched by true fans of bad sci-fi!…i hope travolta gets a chance to make the sequel…maybe the sci-fi channel would bankroll it.

  13. I know Uncle Willie doesn’t get his $.25 from this, but paypal him the quarter, if ya want. The movie is available on E-bay for all you masochists that need to see it. I found 4 copies when I typed “python Robert Englund” into the search there some for a “Buy It Now for $2.99″ Ah, forget it, if you’re that masochistic, you prolly want to pay the big bucks too.

  14. Please tell us that you didn’t actually have to pierce yourself for the movie.(considering the budget, you might have had to as they couldn’t afford the additional spirit gum as Casper’s ‘stash sucked up the entire sfx budget for glue….ugh.)
    /rambling idiot

  15. It’s been said, but Uncle Willie deserves a repremand for paying absolutely no lip service to the mighty Dave Coulier. Oh sure, Marv Wolfman this, Marv Wolfman that, the host of tv’s Out of Control, NADA.
    You should be ashamed.
    Well, not really, but I’m just sayin’.
    many salutes and signs of admiration from a first time commenter-

  16. That’s funny…as soon as you mentioned Python I got thinking about a really bad POS I worked on called King Cobra. I get to the Amazon page and there is the POS Snake Movie Two Pack featuring King Cobra. *snicker* We all have our crosses to bear, I guess!

  17. Hey Billy, I loved Python, And if I was 10 years younger I’d go for you myself. I’ve seen #1 and $2 you are hot babe I’d like a list of all your movies I want them all. Love your work babe Keep it us.

  18. I just found Python on DVD at Zellers for $9.87(CDN). I had to buy it – I saw it on TV once and just howled. I LOVE your last line in that flick Wil – it was my sig file for months. I predict that Python will become a classic B-movie. Wil – be proud!
