Felicia Day: A rising star for the Internet geek ("The Guild" web series/WoW)

http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/felicia-day-a-rising-star-for-the-internet-geek/2012/04/03/gIQAHpnEtS_story.html



This is a story about Felicia Day.

Right now, 30 percent-ish of you are squealing with besotted fan-girldom and fan-boydom.

The other 70 percent of you do not know what a Felicia Day is.

“That’s probably more like 90 percent,” she says. “Whenever I go to a meeting at a studio lot, it’s always the IT guy or the assistant or the accountant who knows me. And then the executives look at me, like, ‘I don’t know why I’m meeting with you.’ ”

1. "The Guild" is great.

 

She was great on Buffy the Vampire Slayer too. I can't really imagine that anything like 70% of people don't know about her. Everybody knows about her.

2. I'm squeeling!

Here's the new video, just released this week.

Now I'm the one that's cool


lyrics
1ST VERSE:
Oh, no. Don't pretend I didn't see
You roll your eyes at my gaming tee
Don't know if you can read or if you've seen
The sweet piece in this week's Wired magazine
The latest trend has hit its peak
They say that geek's becomin' chic
So now you're out of style as you can be
And I'm in vogue, so you can bite me

To all the ass-hat jocks who beat me up in school
Now I'm the one that's cool
I'm the one that's cool
To all the prom queen bitches thinking they still rule
Now I'm the one that's cool
I'm the one that's cool

2ND VERSE:
Try to cop my style but I'm the real thing
While you played sports, I played Magic the Gathering
Never earned a part of nerd society
My Aquaman pajamas prove my pedigree
Watched my Next Gen every night
Wore a headgear to fix my overbite
Your black-rimmed glasses are prescription free, where as me
I literally can't see my hand in front of my face

To all the asshat jocks who beat me up in school
Now I'm the one that's cool
I'm the one that's cool
To all the prom queen bitches thinking they still rule
Now I'm the one that's cool
I'm the one that's cool
And to my eighth-grade crush who pushed me in the pool
Now I'm the one that's cool
I'm the one that's cool
You may be tan and fit and rich but you're a tool
And I'm the one that's cool
I'm the one that's cool

3RD VERSE:
Role reversal must be a total drag
But there's no point, no point for me to humblebrag
I appreciate you for being cruel
I'm burning bright thanks to your rejection fuel
Got my in-jokes you won't get
Like Honey Badger, Troll Face and Nyan Cat
So now your ballin' parties seem so dumb
You can Evite me, and I'll say yes, but I won't really come

Got my comics
Got my games
All the things you thought were lame
Got my cosplay
Fanfic too
Got you pegged
STF-You

CHORUS

3. Loved her in "Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog"

And speaking of "The Guild", I met Amy Okuda and Robin Thorsen at the Planet Comiccon in KC a couple weeks ago.

4. I remember her from Fallout: New Vegas.

 

She played Veronica, the Brotherhood of Steel lady companion that you could add to your team.

She had a personal quest that was the most difficult and interesting one in the game. Which paled in comparison to that of her long-lost girlfriend...
