EW can reveal exclusively that Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), Sasha Roiz (Grimm), Magda Apanowicz (Caprica), Aasha Davis (Pariah), and Clare Grant (Blake Snake Moan) will guest star on the second season, which premieres Aug. 15 on HusbandsTheSeries.com. Whedonverse luminaries Felicia Day (Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog), Amber Benson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Emma Caulfield (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and Dichen Lachman (Dollhouse) also jumped at the chance to appear on the show, which Espenson says speaks for the quality of the material.
A cute, short shout-out to the Supernatural episode that Felicia Day was in as Charlie and Charlie’s use of Linux.
The Resident Anthropologist has started a new feature article about Great Gamers:
I have decided that once a month I will be releasing an article called Great Gamers where I detail out one person, duo, or group which positively influences and affects the video game community, culture, and/or industry. I haven’t decided whether it will come at the beginning or the end of the month, but this is the first one. Great Gamers will look at what the person has done for the community, the culture, and the industry (although they need not affect all three to be a Great Gamer) and how their influence over these areas positively affects the gaming world in general.
His first choice? Felicia Day, of course!
“It’s hard not love a smart and charming geek girl who references Freddy Krueger and old school video games while hanging with Stan Lee. But that’s just part of why we love Felicia Day, the sharp and sexy creative force behind ‘The Guild’ and the recently launched Geek & Sundry YouTube Channel.”
After the recent kick up over Felicia Day’s music video: “Gamer Girl, Country Boy” prompted a great post over at The Resident Anthropologist.
“The article details some of the most recent events in the gaming community (the backlash against Anita Sarkeesian AKA Feminist Frequency, Felicia Day of Geek and Sundry/The Guild, and a few articles/websites that have talked about these events) which have attempted to promote hate against women speaking their minds in the gaming community.”

Felicia Day’s interview with Buzzline:
I don’t really think of myself as a role model of anything, except conveying the attitude “I’m just doing my best.” I’m not trying to be glamorous or “show up” anyone else with my successes, and I try to be the first to admit my failures. If I look crappy in a photo, well, that’s how I looked that day. The glossy “celebrity” culture that we live in kind of repulses me because it isn’t real, and yet we perceive it as real, so we can never live up to it. I just want to encourage people to find their passion and do it regardless of how great they are at it or how other people receive it.
