  2. James Yates

    Soma FM is teh awesome!

  3. I sure wish I was there.

  4. …there’s a Phil?

  5. Yay! Wil!! I love the beard.

  6. Yay Soma FM! Groove on, Wil! :)

    And if he’s got two Soma FM shirts, that’s even more teh awesome for Soma FM, cuz they need the monetary support!

  7. Get a haircut!

  8. Fritriac

    My first thought when i saw the beard: OMG, it’s Riker jr.

    Sorry, Wil ūüėČ

  9. Sean

    Wil: Shave.

    That is all.

    I heard that the con was going really badly and that the organizers were quite concerned it would fail, but young Wil managed to divert the warp coils’ transduction oscillators to the phase particle induction receivers thus causing a temporal shift in the antimatter cortex and saving the day.


    (Love you Wil)

  11. It’s Riker and Troi’s love child! :)
    (Sorry Wil)

  12. Davidlpf

    I can not see the picture at work and from what I see posted that may not be a bad thing.
    (sorry Wil)

  13. Monsignor Henry Clay

    Damn, I really hope my sister came through on this one. Only Phil & Wil can know the truth.

  14. tim

    Bearded Wil FTW!

  15. Ribozyme

    I’m a fan of Soma FM!

  16. Where there’s a Wil, there’s a YAY!

    He’s twittered about you being there, too, probably about when you took that pic.

    “wilw: Tweeting from the panel, just because I can. @BadAstronomer is in the house!”

    I have a lot of respect for Wil. Although, the only thing I know him for is being Wesley and being interested in science. But then again, if you were among the TNG main cast, you get instant respect from me.

  18. Chip

    The best Wesley was the last Wesley at the end of STNG. By then he was having late-teen angst and was getting rebellious and had to hit the open (space) road with the warp-bubble Traveler dude.

  19. I’ll betcha Wil’s twittering.

  20. Eddie

    Damn, Viewer 3 beat me to it ūüėČ

  21. wadef

    Does anybody remember him from Stand By Me when he was a kid? Thats my favorite work of his.

  22. Davidlpf

    It is not as bad as I thought, I thought it was somethineg looking like a wookie human croosbreed.

  23. CanadianLeigh

    Actually it is one of my favorite Stephen King novels as well. Maybe its my age, but it reminded me of adventures with my friends as a young feller. (except finding a dead body)

  24. Nadia

    Lookin good, Wil!

  25. Wendy

    Oh, Phil, methinks you love Wil almost as much as I do!!
