Vidcon 2015 and Vine

Ms. Catie Wayne will be attending Vidcon 2015 in just 2 weeks. Vidcon will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California; right across the street from Disneyland. The convention starts on Thursaday July 23 and ends on Saturday July 25. Tickets are $150 and must be bought online.

Unlike last year where Catie was a Vidcon guest, she will be a regular attendee this year. That means she will not be in any panels nor have an autograph signing. She does however love meeting and interacting with her fans, so if you are attending Vidcon and you see her, feel free to approach her and ask for a hug, picture, and/or autograph. If you want an autograph from her, you may want to carry a sharpie with you. She might already have one on her, but you should have one yourself in case she does not.

She had a public meet up last year with the Animalist crew. An Animalist meet up won’t be happening this year since they are no longer around, but Catie is planning on having a meet up or two. I asked on her forum if she was going to do a public meet up and she responded with: I was planning on it, but I wasn’t sure when. Probably on Saturday and Sunday at some point. I’ll announce it pretty soon.”

I’ll update this post when she makes that information known. She will most likely have the meet ups outside the convention center, so if you live in southern California and are able to get to the Disneyland area, you can meet Catie without having to pay the $150 for a Vidcon pass.

Here are a couple of videos from last year’s Animalist meet up.

 

In other news, Catie recently joined Vine. She has not yet posted anything on there, but follow her if you want to be notified when she does start using it. Catie’s Vine page

Catie’s Birthday is less than a month away.

Catie’s birthday is coming up soon on April 28. She will be turning 23 years old. If you want to send her something like a birthday card or a gift, she has a p.o. box address that you can send it to. That address would be:

Catie Wayne
5758 Geary Blvd. #413
San Francisco, CA 94121


If you don’t want to or can’t send her something, but still want to wish her a Happy Birthday, the best way to do so would be through her twitter. The only other way would be to send her a private message on her forum, but it might take a while for her to actually see it. Like over a month. She gets behind on viewing those messages. Also know that you have to make 5 posts before you are allowed to send private messages on the forum.

Do not send your birthday wishes to her facebook fanpage. That page is run by someone else and Catie would not see it.

2015 Fanboys Anonymous Internet Goddess Tournament

Two weeks ago, Fanboys Anonymous, a geek culture website, launched their 2nd Annual Internet Goddess Tournament. The tournament pits 32 women of the internet into deadly one on one battles, until only one remains to receive the title of “Internet Goddess”. By deadly battle, I mean that fans vote on their favorite, with the winner advancing to the next round. I am of course writing about this because Catie Wayne is one of the participants. In fact, she is the current reigning Goddess as she won the first tournament. Dave wrote about it last year. She received a plaque for the win, but has unfortunately never posted a picture of her holding it.

Here is the article Fanboys Anonymous wrote about Catie’s win. 2014 Internet Goddess Winner

Catie’s first opponent this year is a YouTuber and Viner by the name of Gabbie. Her YouTube channel is The Gabbie Show. Catie is currently winning this round with a score of 195 – 117 (63% of the votes). The poll should be closing soon, so Catie will definitely be advancing to the next round where she will most likely be facing her good friend Anna Brisbin (Brizzy Voices). Looks like Catie’s other good friend, Laina Morris (Overly Attached Girlfriend), will also be advancing. Laina is currently beating Collen Ballinger, who nearly beat Catie last year in the semi-finals. If Laina wins all her matches, she would face Catie in the semi-finals (because we all know Catie will win her matches).

Something that I find a little interesting in these match ups are the vote totals. Catie’s match up has a current total of 312 votes, but the other 7 match ups going on right now have less than 25 votes. This was a common thing last year as well. Most match ups were getting a fraction of the votes to what Catie and her opponents were receiving. Gabbie is one of the lesser known people in these 8 matches. Why does she have so many votes? Is it a coincidence that Catie keeps facing people who have many fans participating, or do her opponents get large totals because of an anti-Catie vote?

Catie’s match against Brizzy will probably start in two weeks. These past two weeks has been the first half of the tournament bracket and I think the other half starts today. I’ll continue updating this post with news and links as they become available.

Update: Round 2, has been in progress since May 18, Catie vs Brizzy.

The winning announcement was made during Chris Dace’s live podcast on April 2; a recording of it can be found here; it is set to skip ahead to 16 minutes in where the announcement is made.

Twitter & VidCon 2013

On June 6 2013, Catie started using Twitter again.  (She had an account by the same name before but that was closed due to inactivity, that is a story for another time.)  This time she is actually using Twitter in a useful way: from her smartphone.

www.twitter.com/catiewayne

Yesterday she flew to Anaheim to attend VidCon 2013.  Lots of people are recognizing her there and every so often, they will post a pic with her to twitter and Catie will retweet it.

Boxxy Quest: The Shifted Spires game

BOXXY QUEST The Shifted Spires On the same day that another Boxxy game was released, “Shrimp” released this amazing, fun Boxxy RPG.  It is a load of fun.  There are a lot of references to the sphere community.  Lots of people in the community have characters in this game.  It is like easter eggs for you to play the game to find them.

Okay, Hi. So I Made a Boxxy Video Game…

oh god, am i doing this right? hi umm… im JaKalibur (some call me JK or whatever. Close friends call me jakariburuuuu) and the admin of this beautiful site, dave, asked me to make a “guest-blog” here, to announce a project i started like five months ago, and finished this November. so yeah, hi (^-^)/

Anyway, heres the details and such: around June or something i announced, on ILB, that i was to begin production of a Boxxy video game. after months of stressful work, including procrastination, my computer breaking, and frantic level designing all through October, i produced the masterpiece i am presenting to you today; Boxxy’s Mooninite Adventure!!!!! :DD I’m not sure how to explain the whole production-process (its a loooong story, with much drama, and many sighs. you can find it all on ILB if you’re really that curious.) so i’ll just get to the point. in short, its a 2-d platformer in which you play as Boxxy (accompanied by a fairy-fied Pocky) on a quest to reclaim the home of the Mooninites, after it being overtaken by Svetlana’s evil forces.

the game has a few bugs in it at the moment, and theres a few things i want to add still, so i’ll be releasing another version (v2.0) next week. for now, enjoy i guess X3

update, 12/11/12: http://www.mediafire.com/?1hd8nd3ii575aax v2.0 (249 MB)

PS: i probably didnt provide much information here, regarding myself and the game or whatever some of you might be curious about (not good at making blog posts -.-‘ ) so id appreciate it if u all felt free to ask anything you want to know, in the comments ;3 k, bye.

Note from doubledave, 2/14/2013: The same day v1.0 of this game was released, the first version of another Boxxy game was released.
