It’s Okay for Takei to Play with Day: George Takei on Felicia Day’s Co-Optitude!

Takei + Day!

Takei + Day!

Felicia Day’s Co-Optitude is one of my very favoritest web shows. It was my Link of the Month back in June in fact.

Well, on this week’s episode something rather magical happened. Usually Co-Optitude is co-hosted by Felicia’s brother Ryon. But this time he was “unavailable.” So Felicia got her first guest-host: none other than GEORGE TAKEI himself!

It was pretty awesome. Especially since Felicia took George’s virginity. His video game virginity, that is.

Here, watch:

They are both completely adorable people (by the way, check out Felicia’s adorable pixie haircut, and how pretty is that top she’s wearing?) and the whole thing is rather charming and delightful.

Hey, I made it through an entire post about George Takei without ever saying, “Oh my.” ← That doesn’t count.

“Of the Month” June 2013

YouTube Show of the Month:
banner_CoOptitude Co-Optitude
In their new YouTube show, Felicia Day and her brother Ryon try to play two-player, co-op video games. I say try because this show truly shows one of the greatest joys of playing co-op video games: completely screwing with the person you’re supposed to be helping. There is so much joyous profanity and accidental friendly fire in these episodes. They make me laugh quite an incredible lot. Plus the fact that they’re siblings makes Felicia’s and Ryon’s interactions just that much more hilariously bickering. Here’s my favorite episode so far, where they try desperately to play the “Goof Troop” video game:

Album of the Month:
1306album Superior Complaints by Locust Street Taxi
The latest album from our very own Orange Fool Nathan Geyer’s band! As usual it is full of quirky, funny, ska/jazz/funk/reggae/country-infused songs. This time they did a very careful job of partnering with some excellent producers and technicians, and so the production quality is through the roof. It sounds quite amazing. My favorite tracks include the brassy, swinging “Dear Carbon Nanotubes”; the straight-up reggae of “Midnight Snack (in Africa)”; and the frighteningly-accurate late-1980s R&B tribute “Swantown Inn” (complete with bonus rap interlude).

Game of the Month:
1306game Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards
A funny competitive card game wherein you try to make spells by combining the various spell-component cards in your hands to comedic and damaging effects. The titles of the spells end up often being squarely in the potty-humor realm, and the illustrations are of the gross-out variety a-la Ren & Stimpy et al. It’s completely juvenile, but it is a lot of fun, especially when you’ve got five or six people playing simultaneously. A game lasts until only one wizard hasn’t been killed, but an ingenious play mechanic lets the “dead” characters draw cards from a special “dead wizard deck” each round until the current game ends, and then use those cards in the next game. Sometimes they’re very useful! It is fast-paced and ridiculous, and I thoroughly enjoy playing it.

New Geek & Sundry Series: Written By a Kid

Felica Day & Kim Evey’s Geek & Sundry YouTube channel has just premiered an excellent new webseries: Written By a Kid. The hosts of the show coax a kid to telling a story, and then they hire filmmakers to actually create the story.

Here’s the first episode, “Scary Smash.” It stars some of my favorite people: Dave Foley (Kids in the Hall, NewsRadio) as the Milkman, Kate Micucci (of comedy music duo Garfunkle and Oates), as the Replacement Recruit, and introducing someone named Joss Whedon as the action hero, Gerald! Watch it now:

Also be sure to watch the extra, behind-the-scenes videos:

I am looking forward to more!

Geek and Sundry by Felicia Day and Friends

I must say I am rather excited for this venture: Felicia Day and friends are starting (on April 2nd) a new YouTube channel called “Geek and Sundry” that includes a bunch of interesting-looking shows. Here’s a trailer:

I have to say I am probably most interested in Wil Wheaton’s “Tabletop” show, which he says “combines Celebrity Poker with Dinner For Five, but we play boardgames instead of poker.” I am also curious as to just what the heck Paul & Storm’s show is going to be like.
