Hooboy. Felicia Day, Jed Whedon, and The Guild webseries crew have plunked down on the internet yet another hooter. Their music video, “Do you wanna date my avatar?”, follows the same vein as the webseries, which involves a hodgepodge group of MMO players who are in the same guild online in a WOW-ish game. “Do You Wanna Date My Avatar?” is pretty much what the title suggests – Felicia Day posing as her “WOW” avatar and luring the viewers into lighthearted hilarious sedecution (amongst fake falling coins and her “plus five two dexterity vest”).

The song will be stuck in your head for hours, trust me. The YouTube video is a great first view but please support The Guild cast and buy the song and music video from Amazon.com or your friendly neighborhood iTunes.

On January 23, 2009 Dylan spoke out through a letter published by the Daily Beast. Essentially Dylan asserts that this is a social experiment. Womens studies classes and college professors got her thinking that virginity is another concept invented by a patriarichal society to keep women in their place. Here is an excerpt:

Like most little girls, I was raised to believe that virginity is a sacred gift a woman should reserve for just the right man. But college taught me that this concept is just a tool to keep the status quo intact. Deflowering is historically oppressive—early European marriages began with a dowry, in which a father would sell his virginal daughter to the man whose family could offer the most agricultural wealth. Dads were basically their daughters’ pimps. Continue Reading My vagina speaks for itself….
