FELICIA DAY: Hey everybody.
I'm Felicia Day, and welcome back to The Flog.
I'm wearing this shirt.

I am so happy to be back from my trip.
I got food poisoning twice.
I think it's because I use bad food judgment.
I drink a lot of Pimm's and ate mushy peas in London, and
then I ordered lasagna from a pastry shop in Munich.
But I got to drive 120 miles per hour down the autobahn.
It is so fun!
I mean, it's very dangerous.
Anyway, I know you missed it, so let's get into
today's Fave Five.
Number one actually comes from my trip last week.
I attended a fan convention in Dusseldorf,
Germany called FedCon.
They're known for their Star Trek fans, but a group of
ladies came up to me with these shirts on.
They made their own Vaginal Fantasy book club shirts, and
they have their own version in German.
I'm so happy to be spreading smut and love of romance and
trashy literature across international borders.
It's amazing.
What a legacy.
Thank you.
Speaking of Vaginal Fantasy, number two is a book called
All Spell Breaks Loose by Lisa Shearin.
It's one of my favorite magic meets romance series.
If you have a good eye, you will have seen me reading one
of these books in The Guild's "Game On" video.
Well, the last book in the series is out and it does not
disappoint.
Plus, the cover's not that bad either.
I mean there is some pleather legging action going on, and
it looks like she's farting magic.

You can also buy it on Kindle.
Number three, did any of you play Ultima Underworld?
I remember loading this game up and being astonished at
first-person gameplay.
I mean, gaming like this?
What?
Amazing!
Well, Legend of Grimrock is a throwback to that kind of
game, and it has puzzles that challenge your mind as well as
your attack finger.
If you're getting carpal tunnel because of Diablo III,
this would be a nice clicking break.
I have a wizard, and I also have a monk because I'm
playing with my brother, and I'm waiting for him, so I
don't want to play if he's not on.
So then I have this alt character that I'm playing--
oh my god, I found this great yellow item the other day, and
it's just--
I'm going to get back to my show.
Number four is an interesting album based on a one man
hip-hop play about ancient classics.
Arty, huh?
Canterbury Tales Remixed is a show by Baba Brinkman where he
raps about Gilgamesh and Beowulf and
Canterbury Tales and more.
I don't know how else to describe it, but at one point
Beowulf says you're my flea, I'm your big dog-- wait.
You're my flea--
you're a flea.
No, no, you're not my flea.
You's the flea.
You's the flea, I'm the big dog.
I'll scratch my balls like your mother[BLEEP]
claw.
No.
I'll scratch your balls.
You ball.
What?
With my mother[BLEEP]
paws.
OK.
And lastly is a webcomic linked to me by Adam Rahmi
called Critical Miss.
It follows a video game blogger named Erin Stout who
hits her head and has video game characters come to life
around her.
Also, other things happen around her in her real life
because she's kind of an [BLEEP], and she loves Thane
from Mass Effect, so we're fictional besties.
All right.
On to the segment.
Who wants to see me drive heavy machinery?
You don't?
I don't care!

I'm here at Dig This, and I'm going to go learn how to drive
a bulldozer.
Oh, yeah!

I am here at Dig This with Jerry, who is going to be my
heavy machinery operator handle person.
Right?
JERRY: That's right.
FELICIA DAY: OK.
So my brother had small versions of this
when I was a kid.
He ain't never done this, so boo-ya!
JERRY: I'm going to have you drive this 40,000-pound
excavator right out in the middle here, where there's
nothing around.
You're not going to hit anything.
And I'm going to walk you through
each and every control.
So now I'm just going to literally be telling you,
Felicia, right hand forward, right hand back,
left hand to left--
FELICIA DAY: OK.
JERRY: Left hand right.
And I'm just going to walk you through each one of those
controls and then I'm going to let you just play around for a
little while and get the feel of it.
FELICIA DAY: I failed my driving test twice.
JERRY: You did twice?
FELICIA DAY: I just want to you to know.
JERRY: OK.
And then right in the center, you have two steering columns.
FELICIA DAY: OK.
JERRY: OK?
Each one of those controls one of these tracks.
I'm seeing a little bit of intimidation
in your eye, but--
FELICIA DAY: I'm a little anxious because I--
JERRY: Don't event worry about it.
FELICIA DAY: OK, I'll be OK.

JERRY: Go ahead and turn it to the right.
Just like you're starting a car, and you're on.
All right.
First thing we're going to do is with your right hand
joystick, go ahead and ease that stick straight back nice
and gently.
FELICIA DAY: Slightly.
Oh god.
JERRY: There you go!
FELICIA DAY: Oh god!
Oh my god!
JERRY: Keep going.
FELICIA DAY: Oh god.
OK.
JERRY: Keep going and stop.
FELICIA DAY: I can be in a cybernetic robot fighting
other people.
JERRY: You're stretching out right now actually.
FELICIA DAY: Yeah!
JERRY: There ya go.
FELICIA DAY: Ah!
JERRY: Woohoo!
FELICIA DAY: Oh my god!
This right here is what I do in my office
chair times one million.
I like doing this part.
JERRY: Well, wait until we get on that mound.
FELICIA DAY: OK.
All right.
JERRY: I like the parade wave.
You ready to dig?
FELICIA DAY: OK.
I'm ready to dig!
I'm scooping!
I'm scooping.
JERRY: And stop right about there is good.
FELICIA DAY: OK.
JERRY: Now you're just going to go right hand straight back
towards you.
Hold it towards me.
There you go.
FELICIA DAY: Yes!
JERRY: And we're just going to come about a foot or two off
the ground.
We don't want to go too high.
FELICIA DAY: OK.
JERRY: Right about there is good.
Then we'll swivel this way, and just lay it
down somewhat close--
about there is good.
FELICIA DAY: I want to do it right here.
Look at that [BLEEP]!
Oh!
What?
This is literally the best thing I've
ever done in my life.
JERRY: Just come right down--
right down behind it.
Right about there's good.
FELICIA DAY: Ah!
FELICIA DAY: There you go.
Yeah!
JERRY: Now you've got it.
Now right from there you're just going to boom straight
up, and you pretty much get where we're going with this.
FELICIA DAY: Yeah!
JERRY: You're just going to swivel back over and drive
right up to the stock there.
FELICIA DAY: Put it down.
JERRY: There you go.
That looks like a piece of what we're going to do, is
just lay it right there.
There you go.
Just like that.
Tap it one more time.
There you go.
Now keep it there because we're [INAUDIBLE].
FELICIA DAY: Ah!

JERRY: A little more.
Now boom up, right hand back.

Now just don't knock it off.
FELICIA DAY: Yes!

Uh oh.
This is depth perception--
JERRY: It is.
FELICIA DAY: 5%.
JERRY: Oh no!
Are we gonna get it?
FELICIA DAY: Yeah!
JERRY: You got it.
FELICIA DAY: Am I going to fall over?
Jerry, am I going to fall over?
JERRY: No.
You're looking good so far.
Maybe a little bit to your right.
Nice and slow.
There you go.

Woo!
Sa-wish!
FELICIA DAY: Yes!
Did you see that?
JERRY: That was awesome!
FELICIA DAY: Nothing but tire net!
Jerry, I think I found a new career.
JERRY: You're hired.

FELICIA DAY: Thanks, Jer.
JERRY: I'll wait till you get your award.
Now you're going to be certified too.
FELICIA DAY: Let's go get our award.
[INAUDIBLE]
Thank you so much.
JERRY: Absolutely.
That gold seal will certainly take you places.
FELICIA DAY: I have to say that this was the most fun per
second I have had in quite a while.
And there was very little personal risk.
And I'm going to dream of spinning around in my
excavator to get to me sleep.
JERRY: Awesome.
Well you did good.
FELICIA DAY: Thank you so much!
Awesome.
JERRY: Thank you.
FELICIA DAY: All right.
Bye guys!
JERRY: Bye bye.
FELICIA DAY: To wrap up, our question of note this week
comes from Faroguy, who asks, if you could be a superhero,
what would you like for a power, name, and sidekick?
Awesome question.
OK.
Dear Faroguy, I tried one of thoses superhero MMOs before
but got so caught up in character creation
indecisiveness that I never actually got into the game.
But I guess I'd love to be able to speak all languages
and be invisible.
That's two powers, you say?
Shut up!
My name would be something inspired by those powers.
Let's say, Invasalingua.
Maybe not.
As for a sidekick, I'd like a tiny man named Tiny Man
because he can get in and out of cracks I couldn't fit in.
He would have emotional problems because he's too tiny
but later meet and marry a fairy.
The story pretty much writes itself.
I'm attaching a crayon drawing of me and my
sidekick for your enjoyment.
Yes, it sucks.
Again, shut up.
Sincerely, Felicia Day.
Well I think this proves that I have very
little drawing ability.
But if you'd like to submit your own artistic
interpretation of my superhero and sidekick, please send it
via Twitter to @geekandsundry.
We're going to make a Pinterest board of all the
submissions and also award the top five people a prize of
indeterminate nature.
Was that vague enough?
You'll get something.
OK.
See you next week.
Bye.
