This is the second in a series of geek love articles where there will be much gushing over geeky, nerdy people who make me happy.
Folks, I’ve fallen in love again. This time, with a woman. (Again, my husband doesn’t mind. He’s a good guy. See this post.) Felicia Day is a writer and actor I first learned about from her role as Penny, the girl who would save the homeless, in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog.
In the musical commentary (thaaaat’s right), she mentions The Guild, her web series about a group of online gamers, as an inspiration for Dr. Horrible. So…I had to check it out…because….I just HAD to. Seriously, I’d just watched the MUSICAL COMMENTARY for a supervillan musical. I had started down the yellow-brick road and I was going to follow it to the end!
The Guild is about gamers who meet up in life for the first time because Codex (Day) needs their help getting a “warlock gnome” off her couch. (Just go with it.) They are awkward and geeky and not real good at the whole social interaction thing which I can totally relate to.
