I won't speak for everyone, but I'm sure many self-proclaimed geeks have had their hobbies and passions bashed by high school teenagers who couldn't comprehend the awesome. I certainly never replayed my favourite Final Fantasy games over and over in lieu of fellow gaming compatriots to share the experience with. No, never.
Felicia Day and crew — creators of the World of Warcraft-centred web series, The Guild — certainly have, or at least their online personas have. But now that the bullying has subsided and magazines like Wired and Vogue have risen to support geek culture, The Guild team feels vindicated.
So vindicated, in fact, that they wrote a song about it. The Guild's latest music video is part of Felicia Day's launch of Geek & Sundry, an Internet community devoted to videos about games, comics and more.
You can find three new shows (including Table Top with Wil Wheaton!) over at the site, as well as a trailer for a fourth upcoming show. We expect to see exciting things from Felicia, Wil, and the other hosts featured at Geek & Sundry.
