Press Release:

The Internet isn’t all cat videos. There’s also Felicia Day. A violinist, filmmaker, Internet entrepreneur, compulsive gamer, and former lonely homeschooled girl who overcame her isolated childhood to become the ruler of a new 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. 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.

felicia-day-bookFelicia Day (The Guild, Geek & Sundry) appears at Bookshop Santa Cruz on Saturday, August 22, 2015 at 7:00 PM to sign her new book YOU’RE NEVER WEIRD ON THE INTERNET (ALMOST)!

Press Release:

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.

MA – Wil Wheaton VS Paul & Storm

wwps

Wil Wheaton joins musical comedy duo Paul & Storm at the Hard Rock Cafe on Sunday October 6, 2013. Doors open at 7pm! Tickets at the link! Present by Rock On! Concerts and the League Podcast.

RSVP on Facebook!

Wil Wheaton

A worldwide audience may know him from recent roles as Evil Wil Wheaton on The Big Bang Theory, Doctor Isaac Parrish on EUReKA, or Fawkes on The Guild, but Wil Wheaton’s successful acting career began in 1986 with acclaimed roles in Stand By Me and Toy Soldiers.

He continued to build his resume through his teen years as series regular ‘Wesley Crusher’ on Star Trek: The Next Generation and opposite Robin Williams in Disney’s Flubber. But Wil is much more than just an actor; he’s an author, blogger, podcaster, voice actor, widely-followed original Twitter user, and a champion of geek culture. Wil currently splits his time between acting and writing. He has recurred for several seasons as Doctor Isaac Parrish on SyFy’s hit series EUReKA, as computer hacker Cha0s on TNT’s Leverage, and as a “delightfully evil version” of himself on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory.

After portraying Axis of Anarchy leader Fawkes in two seasons of Felicia Day’s smash hit webseries “The Guild”, she and Wil co-created the internet sensation Tabletop, which runs Day’s Premium YouTube channel, Geek and Sundry. Wil hosts and executive produces the program, currently in its first season.

An avid and passionate tabletop and video gamer, Wil gave the keynote address to the 2007 Penny Arcade Expo, and delivered the inagural keynote address to PAX East in 2010. He has been featured on the long-running Wizards of the Coast Dungeons and Dragons podcast as the Eladrin Avenger Aeofel, and provides voices for numerous videogames, including Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Red Dead Redemption, Brütal Legend, Fallout: New Vegas, and DC Universe Online. His has voiced numerous animated characters on series such as Ben 10: Alien Force, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Teen Titans, and Legion of Superheroes.

As an author, he’s published several acclaimed books, including: Just A Geek, Dancing Barefoot, The Happiest Days of Our Lives, and Memories of the Future Volume 1, a humorous and nostalgic episode guide of the first half of the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. All of his books grew out of Wil’s immensely popular, award-winning weblogs, which he created at WIL WHEATON dot NET and WIL WHEATON dot NET: in Exile. While most celebrities are happy to let publicists and social media professionals design and maintain their websites, Wil took a decidedly different turn when he started blogging in 2001. He designed, coded, and maintained WWdN entirely on his own, until he “blew up” his sites’ database in 2005 and moved his blog to the TypePad service. In 2012, he returned to his blogging roots at Wil Wheaton dot Net, which is now powered by WordPress.

In the 2002 weblog awards (the bloggies) Wil won every category in which he was nominated, including “Weblog of the Year.” In 2003, Forbes.com readers voted WWdN the “Best Celebrity Weblog.” Wil’s blog was chosen by C|Net for inclusion in their 100 most influential blogs, and is an “A” lister, according to Blogebrity.com. In 2007, Wil was nominated for a Lifetime Achievement Bloggie, alongside Internet powerhouses Slashdot and Fark. In the 2008 weblog awards, Wil was voted the “Best Celebrity Blogger,” and in 2009 Forbes named him the 14th most influential web celebrity. This is all amusing to Wil, who doesn’t think of himself as a celebrity, but is instead, “just this guy, you know?”

********************
Paul and Storm

Paul and Storm have been performing as a comedy music duo since 2004. Before that, they were one half of a cappella band Da Vinci’s Notebook. In addition to touring as Paul and Storm, they’re the evil geniuses (along with Wil Wheaton and Adam Savage) of the nerd-oriented variety show “w00tstock”; co-conspirators in “JoCo Cruise Crazy”; and they now have their own webseries, “LearningTown”, which debuted on January 15, 2013 on Geek and Sundry, Felicia Day’s Premium YouTube Channel.

In addition to their extensive activities on the internet, their music has been heard across the country on outlets including the Bob & Tom Show, the Dr. Demento Show, Comedy Central, NPR, and the Drew Carey Show.
