Aggro Me: Hail to the Queen
Hail to the Queen
I know you've been on the edge of your seats waiting for the results of the Quest for Antonia contest. And the winner is-Well, first, let's review:My initial rantMy review of the contestantsMy take on the Final FiveAnd now (drum roll please)...our winner is...Anna Wainscoat! Yawn.Grats to Anna on the ultimate ding, she seems nice enough and I'm sure she will do a fine job. You can pay homage to your new overlord here.Blackguard lists the runners-up in this thread. My pick, Holly Weber, apparently came in last, so that shows you what I know.Well, some would stop there and go on with their lives, but I decided to track down an article on Anna's victory in the Sacramento Bee. Free registration is required (or try bugmenot).Most of it is typical stuff, although I did find it funny that they state part of her duties will be "to be ogled by fans." They also mention the "Women of Santa Cruz Calendar" which I told you about in my previous post.It turns out that Anna "recently ramped up her Everquest II playing time."Her first directive as Queen? Okay, I'm not making this up - this is in the article, I swear:
"Wainscoat took a Marxist approach. 'I would eliminateSometimes, I think life is just too good to be true.Sony came up with a real winner of a quote as well:
all the classes. I would make everyone equal.'"
"Sony spokeswoman Courtney Simmons said that despite the bikini-time, the contest was intended to prompt more women and girls to play the game. 'It's all in the name of girl gaming," she said.'"Was that honestly said with a straight face? Because you know how many women read Stuff magazine. The emphasis was mine in both those quotes, by the way.
Anyway, I'll try to grab a copy of Stuff when it comes out to see if there are any more good quotes in there. I know this is a longshot, but if anyone has video or audio of the interview portion of the final competition I will pay you in comedy dollars for a copy.Congratulations again to Anna! Long live the Queen!
