Important News

As our economy collapses, our war in Afghanistan ramps up, our war in Iraq rages on, our relations with North Korea remain tense... as our world crumbles... Thank God we have the media to keep it all in perspective.

This was in my 'Top News' section on Yahoo News today.

Way to keep your eye on the ball, guys.

Personally, I prefer Coke also.

And this is just awesome.

Back To The Future's Alternate Ending

It's been said JJ wasn't a big Star Trek fan before taking on the new movie. Think this is along the lines of what he had in mind?

Thanks Josh.

Will Ain't So Bad

I'll admit it, I've been showing a lot of Will-Love on this blog lately. Well it's all for a good reason. He showed me a fabulous weekend including lunch in Ventura, dinner and a movie in Santa Barbara, a funny one-liner at TomScott's expense, and still managed to squeeze in time for me to work on his upcoming claymation short, which I'm sure will rock (no pressure, Will).

But what touched me most was Will cooking for me the next day:

Man after my own heart.

Keep it up, Tiger.

Rallying Support For Will

I know Will and I usually have our differences, but one thing I cannot abide is intolerance, most especially when it comes from a loved one:
Lets all take a moment today to let know we love and support him, even if he is a douche.

Some insight into Will's weekend

I hung out with Will for a good portion of the weekend. I'll probably talk more about that later, but for now, some insight into how things went for Will on the one night we didn't hang out:

Guess he's not all bad.

Have a good night, Stout.

Is Will Your Boss?

For those who work with Will, know that he's not allowed to treat you like that.

Thanks Tamara.

Wow. Just Wow.

And it gets better.

Thanks Brandi.

Thanks for the help, Janet.

Pure Brilliance

Double-U Tee Eff

Glad I didn't take this one home.

She's all yours, Will.

Will Sherrod: Well traveled or hopeless romantic?

Like you, I've been curious about Will's true motives for his 'Totally Badass' spontaneous weekend traveling. At first I was a little worried, thinking "Maybe Will just IS kinda badass."

Fortunately, this clip came along and cleared all that nonsense up:

Watch Married To The Eiffel Tower [Part 1] | View More Free Videos Online at

So now I'm thinking Will's spontaneous weekend trips go something a little more like this:

Badass. I'm sure it was, Will. I'm sure it was...


Thanks again, Janet.

Whoa... Rad.

This is awesome. Thanks to Mike for sending it along.

I'm not a huge Star Wars fan, but my love of John Williams more than makes up for it.

Plus, as Mike pointed out, it's just impressive (as all Hell (I added the 'as all Hell' part myself)).

Check out this dudes Facebook Video.

A Little Brilliance For You...

Leave it to Lipton to bring class to something classless.

Something You Should Know...

I must sincerely applaud Will for his well crafted smear campaign. Clearly a lot of work went into that fine vlog. He has me at a bit of a disadvantage, being that I do not have access to a camera (or iSight), but this will not stop me from protecting you, dear followers. There's something you need to know about Will... something very important....

This Aggression Will Not Stand, Man...

If there's one thing I can't abide, it's bullying. I know I have become a threat to Will's blog and many of his followers are beginning to see the light and choosing to Chill With Dan Instead. But this doesn't sit well with Will and his mantra seems to be "If you can't beat 'em... beat your fans..."

You may remember mention of Lil' Colin 'Coco' Whitman from two posts ago. It appears Lil' Colin has a problem. Will doesn't like that Lil' Colin is a fan of Chill With Dan Instead and has decided to take matters into his own hands.

First of all, thank you Betsy and Peter. You're quite fantastic yourselves. Secondly, you'll note that Colin Whitman is a fan of me (Mr. Ast). It was met with this response from Will:

And as if threatening Lil' Colin wasn't enough, Will has brought along friends:

Here at Chill With Dan Instead, I will never bully my current or former fans. If you choose ChillWithWill as your path, I will accept that you have weighed your options heavily and chosen the less-Totally-Badass of the choices. But I will not ridicule you for it and I will certainly not threaten you.

I stand up for my fans and I say to you, Will, leave Lil' Coco alone, or you'll hear from me again. And I'm not some poor bastard who levels apple boxes when told. I can stand up for myself... and for Colin.

The Only Sensible Way To Live In This World Is Without Will's (Blog)

It's all part of the plan.

Will thinks he's a hero, swooping in to recap things you can find in high quality on Hulu only to give you the YouTube version of it.

Isn't that kinda like being cast in the Dark Knight and showing up with nipples on your bat suit? TOTALLY BADASS is about quality, Will. But I suppose this is more your style:

A quick aside, Will. Talk about one sided smear campaigns, why does the subject of yesterday's rebuttle look not-so-thrilled to be chilling with Will here?

Where's your hand, Will? And why the 'Get that camera outta here' look on your face?

It's time for you to take off that mask and show us all who you reaaally are.

The Revolution Has Begun

You had to know this was coming, Will. You can't abandon your fans for weeks on end and expect loyalty. Just see what lil' Coco Whitman has to say about Chill With Dan Instead:

And LLama LLovin' Kareem:

And Cuttin' J-Ro:

And the trump card, Mr. Dan Reed:

So there you have it, Will. I've gained approval from 4 people. Another 24 to 48 hours and I may have as many followers as you. Time to step up your game, my friend.

Now I'm going back to watching Groundhog Day. He saw his shadow. Prepare for another 6 weeks of winter, Will.

It's going to be long, cold... and bitter.

It's On

It's On.

It has come to my attention via a very ballsy status update on Facebook that Will now considers me his arch nemesis.
This is what happens when you try to give a friend a kick in the ass for slacking on their "Totally Badass" blog.

Since Will is drawing a line in the sand, I thought I'd draw a few lines myself. Lines of distinction. While it's true that Will and I have some things in common-

-it has become apparent that there is truly a world of difference between us. Here are some examples:

This is how I treat my women:

This is how Will treats his:

This is how I treat my friends:

This is how Will treats his:

Animals like me:

Animals do not like Will:

And I think how one communicates with their friends, loved ones, and God's special little creatures is an important factor in who they are.

Once you really think about it, Will's got more in common with others than me:

I mean, Christ, isn't he just kinda scary?

So, dear readers (both of you), IT'S ON. You are now The Enemy Will Sherrod, and before you know it, people will Chill With Dan Instead all over the blogosphere.

3 Posts In One Day. Whoa.

I threw a totally bitchin' party last night for my friend Bill. Actually, Bill is making his comedic short 'Apology Day' and the story concerns an obnoxious fellow who awakes the morning after said bitchin' party and must apologize for all the crazy shiznit he did. So the party was mostly to take PD photos of said obnoxious fellow being obnoxious and doing said crazy shiznit.

I only bring it up because Will said he would come by, but never showed.

Why Chill With Dan?

Why not? Chilling With Will just isn't as satisfying as it used to be, is it? Not feeling like there's anything new? Fresh? Well, welcome to Chill With Dan Instead. Which is exactly what you should do. Here I'll share my thoughts on a variety of matters, not the least of which is the disappointing lack of updates to chillwithwill.

I'll also get a little self absorbed and share updates on my current feature film endeavor 'Claire' even though you don't care.

In the interest of full disclosure, Will woke up on my couch the past two mornings. But I don't really want to talk about it.

I'm coming for you, Will.

The blog has been created. This is my first blog and your last chance, Will. Be Totally Badass like you promised or I'll be forced to steal your fanbase.
