Here Be Dragons
This Exists... Because of A Lady
I finally got the opportunity to meet (and actually hang out with) actress Teal Sherer at GeekGirlCon this past weekend in Seattle and was delighted to find we got along just as well in person as online. Most of you probably know Sherer from her role as Venom on The Guild but she's recently branched out into her own comedic web series titled My Gimpy Life. It's loosely based on her own experiences as a disabled actress living in Los Angeles, and while I may be biased, it's pretty hilarious so far. The latest episode features her Guild co-star and real-life pal, Felicia Day, as they both audition for the same role. Having been on one disability panel with Sherer at GGC and watching her on another I can tell you she's got a great handle on how to educate while being funny and is unapologetic about showing what those of us hear from other people on a daily basis. There's some adult language in this episode, just as a warning. Hit the jump to watch episodes one and two if you haven't already.Read More
Allow Us To Explain
Almost Totally Excellent
Not everything has to be us versus them but a great song is a great song. I'm the One That's Cool is the latest music video offering from Felicia Day and her crew from her webseries, The Guild. And it should totally be on the radio. I'm serious. It was stuck in my head after about 60 seconds. It may even be destined to surpass their previous Do You Wanna Date My Avatar? song. I'm the One That's Cool debuted on Day's new Geek & Sundry channel, which you can read more about here. Enjoy!Read More

Things We Saw Today
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
It should be noted that all this started in part because so many people, including folks I have only just met, have said, "has anyone ever told you that you look like Felicia Day?" This has gone as far as getting a text message from a friend at DragonCon who saw Felicia Day walking nearby and was seriously confused because he didn't think I was supposed to be there... So, yeah best picture that has ever been taken of me, I think.Read More
