Dragon Age: Redemption - Tallis (Episode 1)

So, yeah... I've been posting a lot of videos lately, I know. What can I say? Sorry, kids, but this is what passes for content around here lately, talk to management if you don't like it.


Dragon Age is a well known video game/book/RPG/comic book/geek hive-mind central/etc. Felicia Day is the geek girl de rigueur these days, a total cutie-pie, and possibly best known for her work on the God damn brilliant Dr Horrible's Sing-along blog, which is one of the best things ever.

What? Don't believe me?

Fine, watch this then, you butthole!

In your face!

Anyway, this is the first episode of the Dragon Age: Redemption webseries, entitled: Tallis. There will be more to follow. Watch for them.

Also, a Life of Jon Fun Fact Anecdote: I met the Director of this series, a gentleman by the name of Peter Winther, in L.A. a million and a half years ago at an art opening for his then girlfriend. It was so long ago, we geek-bonded over the fact that Peter Jackson had got the rights to Lord of the Rings and the greenlight to make it into three films. Anyway, at the time, he was working with Devlin and Emmerich (this was in the days before the world knew better) and he had been a co-producer on Godzilla. So, as any good movie geek is wont to do after a few vodka rocks, I ragged on him pretty hard core about some of the very obviously terrible choices they made while filming that cinematic turd. And he could only hang his head in shame and agree.

"What about the Atomic breath, Peter!" I said at the last, looming over him at the bar, my tirade having run its long-winded and sharply cutting course. "What about the Atomic breath...?"

He had no answer.

Point: Jon
