Praised by the likes of Neil Patrick Harris, George R. R. Martin, Lev Grossman, and Jenny Lawson, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is the much-anticipated memoir of a digital entrepreneur, awarded actress and web series star, and geek culture icon.
Growing up, being “homeschooled for hippie reasons” led Felicia Day to out-of-the-box enthusiasms like advanced calculus, noir films, fantasy novels, and role-playing video games. Typically typecast as “crazy cat lady secretary” and meeting dead ends pitching her script about a quirky group of gamers, she decided to adopt a do-it-yourself attitude and produce her own web series—launching The Guild and, ultimately, her career as one of the most influential creators in new media. Day’s inspirational memoir is proof that everyone should celebrate what makes them different and be brave enough to share their unique point of view with the world, because anything is possible—even for a digital misfit.
Candid and insightful about her unusual upbringing, her college years as a violin and math whiz, her early misadventures in Hollywood, and her unconventional rise to Internet-stardom, Day writes about how embracing individuality fuels creation, community, and innovation on the Internet and beyond. Ever-relatable, she also addresses the rough patches along the way, recounting her struggles with writer’s block, anxiety, and learning how to manage when overachieving becomes overwhelming. A success story for today’s connected culture, in which technology and entertainment are ever-changing, Day was empowered to ignore the traditional gatekeepers because the Internet provided tools to go around them.
Felicia Day has appeared in numerous mainstream television shows and films, including the SyFy series Eureka and a recurring role on The CW show Supernatural. However, she is best known for her work in the web video world, behind and in front of the camera. She co-starred in Joss Whedon’s Emmy Award-winning Internet musical, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. She also created and starred in the hit web series The Guild, which ran for six seasons and is available for viewing on every major digital outlet, including Netflix.
In 2012, she launched the YouTube channel Geek & Sundry, a hub for the geek community that celebrates individuals and fuels connections both online and in real life. Now with more than 1.3 million subscribers and over 200 million views, Geek & Sundry has produced the very best of indie geek culture, pioneering modern media consumption—and catalyzing a barrier-transcending online community exploring the verticals of comedy, gaming, comics, music, literature, and more. In 2014, the company was purchased by Legendary Entertainment; Day now acts as Geek & Sundry CCO. She was named to the Hollywood Reporter’s 2012 Next Generation list recognizing rising stars 35 and under in media. Her extremely active social media network includes over 2.3 million Twitter followers, is the founder of a romance and fantasy book club with over 13,000 members.

ABOUT YOU’RE NEVER WEIRD ON THE INTERNET (ALMOST):
The Internet isn’t all cat videos. There’s also Felicia Day–violinist, filmmaker, Internet entrepreneur, compulsive gamer, hoagie specialist, and former lonely homeschooled girl who overcame her isolated childhood to become the ruler of a new world…or at least semi-influential in the world of Internet geeks and Goodreads book clubs.
After growing up in the south where she was “homeschooled for hippie reasons,” Felicia moved to Hollywood to pursue her dream of becoming an actress and was immediately typecast as a crazy cat-lady secretary. But Felicia’s misadventures in Hollywood led her to produce her own web series, own her own production company, and become an Internet star. Felicia’s short-ish life and her rags-to-riches rise to Internet fame launched her career as one of the most influential creators in new media. Now, Felicia’s strange world is filled with thoughts on creativity, video games, and a dash of mild feminist activism–just like her memoir.
Hilarious and inspirational, “You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost)” is proof that everyone should embrace what makes them different and be brave enough to share it with the world, because anything is possible now–even for a digital misfit.

|J MICHAEL TATUM
Discovered by Funimation warhorse and visionary ADR director Christopher Bevins, who cast him as Rikichi in 2005’s Samurai 7, Tatum’s inexplicable luck has held long enough to see his flag hoisted on a slew of dream roles, most notably Kyoya Otori in the hit English language dub of Ouran High School Host Club, suave, demonic Sebastian Michaelis in Black Butler and the equal parts maniacal/vulnerable Okarin Rintarou from Steins;Gate. Other characters the man still can’t believe he’s had the crazy good fortune to play include: Doumeki in XXXHolic, Jiro Mochizuki in Black Blood Brothers, Isaac Dian in Baccano!, Both God Eneru and Dalton in the new dub of One Piece, Komui Lee in D-Gray Man, Dororo in Sgt. Frog, the titular loveable savage of Heroic Age, Ryosuke Takahashi in Initial D, Lawrence Kraft in Spice and Wolf, Zarbon in Dragon Ball Z Kai, Scar in Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and Sir Hammerlock in the videogame juggernaut Borderlands 2. His vocal “stylings,” much to the chagrin of drama teachers everywhere, he’s sure, have also been featured in Romeo X Juliet, Speed Grapher, Trinity Blood, Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple, Black Cat, Nabari no Ou, Ghost Hunt, School Rumble, The Tower of Druaga, Aquarion, Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicles, Shuffle, Shigurui, Glass Fleet, Mushishi, Soul Eater, along with feature-length films such as Vexille, Summer Wars, and Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker, among many others.
And as if being involved with so many awesome shows wasn’t enough, in late 2007 the fluky so-and-so tempted fate by officially branching out into ADR directing and adaptive scriptwriting for Funimation as well. His ADR directing credits to date include Aquarion, Jyu-oh-Sei, Romeo X Juliet, Big Windup, Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne and Shikabane Hime (Corpse Princess), while his writing credits include substantial work on Ouran High School Host Club, Heroic Age, Initial D, Blassreiter, Ga Rei: Zero, Hero Tales, Legend of the Legendary Heroes, Fractale, Deadman Wonderland, Steins;Gate and Dragon Ball Z Kai.
In early 2010 he teamed up with Terri Doty and Stephen Hoff to launch That Anime Show, a web-based chat show centered on colorful, often diabolically unhinged interviews with friends and colleagues within the dubbing industry, all episodes of which can be downloaded for free at www.thatanimeshow.com
Ever the workaholic, Tatum is currently burning the midnight oil on a number of exciting projects due for release later this year. And before you ask, the “J” stands for… Well, it stands for whatever you’d like it to.
When Noah Watts was 9 years old, his uncle gave him a Crow name. He said, “I am going to name you, Bulaagawish, Old Bull.” His uncle put his hand on Noah’s shoulder and continued. “That’s the name Chief Plenty Coups gave your grandfather. The name refers to the buffalo bull that leads the herd. That name has good things associated with it.”
A member of the Crow tribe and descendent of the Blackfeet nation, Noah Watts grew up in Bozeman, Montana, but each summer Noah goes home to the Crow reservation to camp at Crow fair with his extended family. Excelling in baseball, basketball, golf, tennis, and skateboarding as a boy, Noah also learned to ride horses, fly fish, and snowboard living in the Rockies. As part of his connection to his Native culture, Noah has been a traditional Crow war dancer since he was 6 years old, occasionally competing in contests but more often dancing for pleasure at pow pows. He is also an accomplished guitarist.
Noah has been acting on stage since fifth grade when he played the Scarecrow in a school production of Oz. In high school Noah began developing and refining his acting skills in a variety of roles that culminated in the part of John Proctor in The Crucible. Noah also worked on his acting craft in the forum of high school speech and debate contests, putting the capstone on his high school acting career by representing Montana at the National Forensic League National Tournament. His performance of the dramatic monologue “Gas” by Jose Rivera in front of 1,500 people earned him fourth place in the national tournament. High school dramatics was a catalyst for Noah’s acting career. As a high school senior, Noah acted in two independent feature films. First, Noah was cast in The Slaughter Rule, playing Waylon Walks Along, a teenage Blackfeet youth. Just a few months later he landed a second role as Herbie Yellow Lodge in the feature film Skins directed by Chris Eyre. Portraying the son of an alcoholic father (Graham Greene), Noah had the third lead part and shared scenes with Native actors Greene and Eric Schweig. It was then Noah began to dream of a career in film. Noah graduated from high school and won a scholarship to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles. After one semester at AADA, Noah was offered a part in a new Chris Eyre film entitled Skinwalkers, playing a teenage gang leader and suspected murderer, a role far different from the shy, devoted son he played in Skins. The following summer in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, he performed the lead in the Southwest Repertory Company’s production of The Indolent Boys written by N. Scott Momaday. Other projects included an appearance on Literary Stages on KCRW in Los Angeles, reading a piece by W. P. Kinsella. And in the Spring of 2005 Noah was cast in an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, entitled Kino and Teresa. He played the fierce villain Eladio (Tybalt in the original play).
Beginning with a role in the series, Sons of Anarchy, in 2009, Noah turned to television. Subsequently he acted in episodes of Native Century (2010), The Glades (2010), Big Love (2010), CSI Miami (2011), and Ringer (2012). Most recently Noah was cast as the main protagonist, Connor Kenway, in the Assassin’s Creed Three video game set during the time period of the American Revolution. Noah provides voice and motion capture for half-Mohawk and half-British, Kenway.
When Crows bestow a name, they also bestow a wish, a prayer for the name’s recipient. Noah’s uncle wished for Noah to lead a life of distinction that would be a credit to the Crow people. Noah has a name to live up to and a destiny to follow. Noah is currently living in Los Angeles and working towards fulfilling his dream.

Portland’s The Slants are the first and only all-Asian American dance rock band in the world. They offer up catchy dance beats, strong hooks, and a bombastic live show that is “not to be missed” (The Westword). The Willamette Week says “While the band may well be best experienced live, Slants releases always promise a few blistering, note-perfect singles.” The music is the perfect combination of 80’s driven synth pop with hard-hitting indie, floor-filling beats which fans affectionately dub as “Chinatown Dance Rock.”
They’ve been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” IFC TV, Huffington Post, MTV, and over 1500 radio stations, tv shows, magazines, and websites worldwide.
17 international tours, including appearances in 46 of 50 U.S states, have led to headlining showcases at major festivals such as SXSW, MusicfestNW, San Diego Comic-Con, Dragon Con.

In 2011, The Slants worked with the Department of Defense for a series of shows at U.S and NATO bases in Eastern Europe, dubbed “Operation Gratitude.”
Two of their recent music videos feature martial arts choreography by Sammo Hung (The Matrix, Ip Man, & Enter the Dragon) and international stars Daniel Wu and Shu Qi.
Whether rocking music halls, anime conventions, maximum-security prisons, colleges, or army bases, it’s clear that The Slants’ infectious brand of “so damn good” music will leave you wanting more (MRU Magazine)
