FELICIA DAY: Flog, Flog, Flog.
I am Felicia Day and this is my show.
If you like it, press the Subscribe button because I
just asked you.
Tomorrow night, my friend Sean Plott kicks off his Hangout at
8:00 show here on Geek and Sundry.
He and his friends talk relationship stuff as they
play through romance-heavy video games and drink beer.
Seems like it's going to be a hot awesome mess.
So tune in live at 8:00 PM tomorrow right here on Geek
and Sundry, Pacific.
And now I'd like to share my trio mio of the week.
Trio mio, you like that name, Syl?
I don't care.
Number one--
Resonance is an old school point-and-click adventure game
with a few modern twists, like you could switch between four
different characters as you play.
There's also a really cool mechanic called short- and
long-term memory banks that allows you to solve puzzles in
really innovative ways.
Warning, some of the puzzles are really hard.
So you're probably going to have to cheat, just like when
I was seven and when I couldn't get through King's
Quest III and I called the hotline and I ran up a $400
phone bill.
My mom hid it from my dad.
Thanks, mom.
Number two this week comes from tweeter @themightybutton.
The Drunken Moogle is a blog that combines two awesome
things, gaming and drinking.
They feature recipes, drinking games, glassware, even a list
of barcades that you can visit and get drunk at.
The life-size Transformers wine rack they'd recently
featured makes me want to become a (ROBOTIC VOICE)
Lushamatic 5000.
Drinking, drinking, drinking, drinking.
Oh, fun, guys, fun.
So much fun.
Ah, pass out.
Lastly is a web comic called Wondermark.
The art is pulled by the author from 19th-century
wood-cuttings and newspaper clippings, but the humor is
totally modern and biting.
In this one comic, Gax, the penis-necked
dinosaur, is with Maureen.
And Maureen is concerned because Gax
missed the book club.
So she invites a terrier over to get him
out of his bad mood.
And he gets angry.
It's way funnier when you read it, I promise.
In the segment this week, my friend Morgan Webb and I go
get our Katniss on, or our Brave or
Green Arrow or Hawkeye.
Wow.
2012 is the year of the bow and arrow, man!

I'm here with my friend Morgan.
MORGAN WEBB: In Fullerton.
FELICIA DAY: In elf ears.
And we're at Hi-Tech Archery.
And we're going to learn how to shoot arrows at--
not people, but targets, right?
MORGAN WEBB: Yes.
Well, we got to shoot targets first, so that when we shoot
people, we aim accurately.
We don't want them to suffer.
We want to one-shot them.
FELICIA DAY: Let's go!
MORGAN WEBB: OK.
FELICIA DAY: So this is Chad.
He is the archery--
master, is that your title?
CHAD MANSFIELD: Coach.
FELICIA DAY: Oh, OK.
Archery coach.
And he's going to teach me and Morgan how to--
CHAD MANSFIELD: Shoot today.
FELICIA DAY: He knows everything.
Chad's never been on camera before.
And he's never done a segment with a girl with
elf ears on, so--
CHAD MANSFIELD: Two firsts.
FELICIA DAY: Yeah.
CHAD MANSFIELD: We'll have Ahnika demonstrate what you
guys are going to be doing.

FELICIA DAY: If you had elf ears on, would you
be better or worse?
AHNIKA BOONE: This is your arm guard.
It's going to go on your left arm on the inside, right by
your elbow.
And this will protect your arm from the string.
FELICIA DAY: So this could be potentially dangerous?
MORGAN WEBB: I wasn't told that before.
FELICIA DAY: I had no idea.
What are these called?
AHNIKA BOONE: Arm guards.
MORGAN WEBB: I keep looking for fancy lingo and
there just isn't any.
This is an arrow.
AHNIKA BOONE: Now for arrows, I need to see your arm length.
FELICIA DAY: Can I have orange?
MORGAN WEBB: You're very demanding.
FELICIA DAY: No!
I'm just saying if this is the one time I'll ever do archery,
I need to be branded.
Conceivably, are we on the same elf team?
Or are we opposing each other?
MORGAN WEBB: I think we're on the same team.
FELICIA DAY: She's the elf authority.
We decided downstairs.
All right.
So I'm orange.
What color is Morgan?
MORGAN WEBB: I've always been partial to blue, but--
FELICIA DAY: She's royalty.
I'm just a serf in our elf clan.
We need to name our elf clan.
We're the Webb clan.
MORGAN WEBB: That is right.
It is my clan.
FELICIA DAY: It's a clan.
MORGAN WEBB: Chop, chop, everybody!
Chop, chop!
CHAD MANSFIELD: So now we're going to get
you set up to shoot.
FELICIA DAY: How hard is this going to be?
CHAD MANSFIELD: I've had six year olds do it pretty easily.
MORGAN WEBB: So it's hard, is what you're telling me?
FELICIA DAY: So we might not be good.
MORGAN WEBB: So we're going to fail at this miserably.
OK.
Continue.
FELICIA DAY: But we can be shown how by a six year old.
CHAD MANSFIELD: Maybe.
FELICIA DAY: This looks like more like a bow and arrow that
I would play in Mass Effect versus Skyrim.
CHAD MANSFIELD: OK.
FELICIA DAY: This is very light.
MORGAN WEBB: You could kill elves all day.
FELICIA DAY: You're going to kill other elves?
MORGAN WEBB: Well, if they're trying to take over my tribal
land and my elven--
if they want Rivendell, I'm fighting.
FELICIA DAY: We are enemies.
CHAD MANSFIELD: Put one foot on either side of the line.
FELICIA DAY: OK.
CHAD MANSFIELD: That goes on the little--
FELICIA DAY: So this goes on the inside.
OK.
Oh, wow.
How do I let go of it?
CHAD MANSFIELD: Just open your fingers.
FELICIA DAY: What?
Whoa!

Ah!
Ah!
Oh my god!
That was not the reaction I should have done.
AHNIKA BOONE: So I'm going to teach you how to pull arrows.
This is where all the injuries happen in archery.
FELICIA DAY: Wait.
What?
MORGAN WEBB: This is the dangerous part?
AHNIKA BOONE: Yeah.
So when you approach your arrows, you don't want to walk
straight into them.
It happens a lot.
We don't know why.
FELICIA DAY: Are you serious?
Looking around me.
Pulling.
What do I do?
I forgot.
AHNIKA BOONE: You lay it up against the wall.
MORGAN WEBB: I already finished my arrows.
FELICIA DAY: OK, fine.
OK.
Look.
It's an elven processional.
Our two clans united as one.
MORGAN WEBB: That's the graduation recessional.

FELICIA DAY: Imagine it's the body of your
fallen lover, Ainwyn.

Whoa!
MORGAN WEBB: Oh, man.
We could beat this Morlock invasion yet.
FELICIA DAY: It would just be like, slow down, I got
to get my bow in.
I got to get my arrow in.
Just slow down.
MORGAN WEBB: Hang on, guys.
Just wait a second.
FELICIA DAY: Hang on, guys.
You're going to get killed really good, but just--
MORGAN WEBB: I'm also going to try to stop my heartbeat for a
second so that my shot's more stable.

FELICIA DAY: Whoa!
I have to say, no matter what, you look majestic.

Again, again.
[GASP]
MORGAN WEBB: I can go.
I'm just going to go now.
I would just like to point out that I got an arrow into the
yellow section.
And I'm pretty much good now.
I think my archery career has just hit the top that it's
ever going to hit.
FELICIA DAY: OK.
That's enough of it.
I did this.
To me, I never want to be confined by a bullseye and
have society set the standard for success for me.
So this right here is my personal bullseye.
So that was our archery experiment.
MORGAN WEBB: I only got hurt a little bit.
I'm going to have a nasty bruise and I'm going to show
it to everybody.
FELICIA DAY: What will you say, though?
MORGAN WEBB: OK.
One of them got me with one of their orc machetes.
FELICIA DAY: Those are not good.
Probably had some poison on it.
MORGAN WEBB: Exactly.
But don't worry, I fought it off with my
superb archery skills.
FELICIA DAY: Well, thank you for coming to play with me.
MORGAN WEBB: I enjoyed myself a lot.
Thank you for having me.
FELICIA DAY: Yeah.
And we are the elven goddesses.
And to wrap up this week, our question of note comes from
Kuruvata, who asks, "If you were to have a beard, what
kind would you have?"
Dear Kuruvata, beards, like glasses, must
flatter face shapes.
So let's look at the options.
The classic Santa beard, George RR Martin burly beard,
or the beard that killed all the family members.
Is the fu manchu a mustache or a beard?
Whatever.
Oh, bubble beard!
Heh!
These are all great beards.
But if there was one beard I had to choose, it would most
definitely be the Dumbledore.
If I ever rode a motorcycle, it would fly behind me waving
proudly in the wind.
Sincerely, Felicia Day.
OK.
Kuruvata, your letter's on its way.
And if you'd like to submit your own trio mio or question
of note, please email to theflog@geekandsundry.com.
See you next week.
Bye!
