That’s right folks, webisode one of Dragon Age Redemption is HERE! Everyone’s favorite Red headed, cute as a button, Internet Queen of the Webisode Felicia Day’s long awaited collaborative effort with Bio Ware is up for viewing. 

It may seem a little strange at first, after all Felicia Day is one of the sweetest people you could meet in person (DragonCon 2011!) and on screen. Yet here she is an Elf assassin, quick with a blade and knows when to twist that knife as well. One thing, don’t call her “Knife Ears” she hates when people call her that.

Check out the first episode and let the other NerdBastards know what you think in the comments section below.

Felicia also posted this video on her blog to promote the Dragon Age Redemption webisode’s premiere, bask in her quirkiness! 

Nerdy girls everywhere felt a slight tremble in the force today as Peter Jackson updated his Facebook page letting the world know that Orlando Bloom is officially on board to reprise his role as Legolas in The Hobbit. Everyone expected him to come back, but now everyone can breath a sigh of relief with the confirmation. Jackson had this to say,

Ten years ago, Orlando Bloom created an iconic character with his portrayal of Legolas. I’m excited to announce today that we’ll be revisiting Middle Earth with him once more. I’m thrilled to be working with Orlando again. Funny thing is, I look older—and he doesn’t! I guess that’s why he makes such a wonderful elf.

Elf Ear Surgery … REALLY??

So the latest craze these days is a “Body Modification” of the ear, making it pointy like an elf. I guess it’s not enough for some to just have a tattoo, piercings, and brandings, they have to have their body changed. I have seen sub-dermal horns, forehead ridges, and knuckle horns at various conventions and have never had the uncontrollable urge to go under the knife. It’s not a simple operation to preform either, it’s painful and often irreversible.

The surgery video below was performed by a “body modification artist” from Tempe, AZ. He slices the top of the cartilage and then sews it back together in a point (via GeekTyrant).

“There’s a lot of people out there who have an inner vision of themselves and they want to express that to the world around them. I’m very happy to be an artist that can provide that kind of work.”

Dr. Arthur W. Perry had this to say:

“The real risks are one – major deformity of the ear, which is very easy to have happen and two, infection of the ear, and if infection occurs, it can destroy the ear within days. It’s very difficult and often it’s not possible to fully reconstruct a nice-looking ear.”

Many of the articles floating around the Internet claim that music is heard better with the modification, I call bullpucky. A good set of headphones would solve that issue. This is just people that want pointy ears and won’t be satisfied with plastic Cosplay ears. If they want to do it, I’m cool with it, just go see a REAL DOCTOR, not some hack in the back of a dirty tattoo parlor.

Just like I tell my friends that want tattoos, go to the best! Go to someone who knows what the hell they are doing. If the shop is dirty, walk out. If the shop is cluttered, walk out. If you’ve not seen a tattoo done by the tattoo artist in person and like it, WALK OUT!

Last but not least, if your drunk, walk out. If still want it sober, go for it.
