The Guild: News Round-up!

The Guild Season 3 DVD available on

It's the 3rd of March already!
It was hubby's birthday yesterday (Yay! Cake and cookies!) so HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUBBY (for yesterday). Anyway, it always amazes me how quickly we get to March and so much has happened over the last few weeks with regards to The Guild that I thought some clip notes might be helpful. You know, in case Felicia rings up one day and asks you if you've seen her  latest BrownCoatsMovie interview and you didn't know anything about it - imagine how embarrassing that would be!

Streamy Nominations....all SEVEN of them
After the live online announcement of the Streamy Awards nominations I posted a list of all The Guild's nommies. Congratulations to the whole team for a fantastic effort.

Comics, Covers and is it March 24th yet?

The Guild comic #1 is out on 24th March and Scott Allie is looking for feedback letters to feature in #2, so check out the 6-page preview and send your email to scotta at darkhorse dot com.

Interviews with Felicia

Browncoats movie

@osiramon has posted a multitude of excellent vids on his corpus D YouTube channel, like this one:

Knights of The Guild - powered by Unicorns
Kenny and Jenni continue to provide us with amazing podcasts - and videos! - choc-full of Guildie goodness with their podcasts and website. It was recently their one year anniversary and as a treat they threw a huge party and invited all the Guildies - fans, cast and crew - to attend. Those of us who couldn't attend in person (and some fans did make the trip) could watch online on Ustream. It was a great party! The full video is online, too (password is available from the Knights of The Guild website).

The best thing is to subscribe to the podcast so you don't miss an episode. With podcasts, microcasts and videos being released there is never long to wait for a new installment.

Codex's Staff Auction
Have you been following Greg Aronowitz as he tests Felicia's handiness as they make a Codex staff together? Greg has been posting amazing details about how he constructed the staff along with some brilliant videos of him and Felicia in perfect harmony. Part 3 is now up along with some exciting news. The staff they expertly made is up for auction! This is a one-of-a-kind piece made by Felicia (with some small help from Greg) and is sure to raise a lot of funds for The Red Cross.

Sean Becker and Jeff Lewis: a new collaboration
With a World Premiere tonight at the 'Shorts 'n' Spirits Showcase', the brand new series from Becker (Director of The Guild) and Lewis (Vork from The Guild) is set to hit an unsuspecting audience in Glendale. Titled 'The Jeff Lewis 5-Minute Comedy Hour' this series promises to show a whole new side of our beloved Guild Leader. When I interviewed Sean last year he said that people were going to be blown away by this series and that Jeff's writing was more than adequate. In an interview for Tubefilter as part of their article about the 'Shorts 'n' Spirits' night, Jeff Lewis was similarly enthusiastic, saying
"I had done sketch comedy in theater for many years and always wanted to widen my audience to the entire world. Sean was the fourth person I thought of.”  

Emerald City Comic Con
Some of the cast and crew of The Guild will be headed over to Seattle for ECCC and will be there on March 13th and 14th. Check the website for full details about when they will be appearing. Felicia Day will not now be appearing due to something or other, what was is now...erm....OH YES! She's landed a starring role in a movie!!! Gratz to Felicia and hope we find out more soon!

Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em Improv
Felicia Day flaunts her moustache while Jeff Lewis checks the loot

If you want to see some free-forming Improv that features some of your favourite webseries stars then you should make you way over to the Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em Improve Ustream site. They stream live thanks to the miracle of the intertubes and are frantically funny. Past shows are there to view on Ustream.

That's my little round-up - what did I miss? Please let me know what I've left out and I'll add it. Bye for now, Guildies!


  1. Once more you're the hostess in-the-knowstest

  2. Wow.. lots of Guildie Goodness.. thanks for bundling all that together and thanks for the continued cookies and love toward Knights of the Guild podcast.

  3. Another spectacular whirlwind of information! And happy belated hubbyday!

    In other news, a homeless person has suddenly invaded our office (4realz), so I have to cut this short. Later.

  4. Thanks, Megan, just collecting together the bits and pieces from the webz in a tidy list. Lists are good :)

    Kenny: KOTG continue to be a massive part of The Guild fan experience - you two are awesome!

    Alan: Hubby had as good a day as can be had when you're working nights. He did get cookies and cake though, which helped. And was your visitor was it Kim....?

  5. Sadly it was not Kim. It was a guy looking first for a job and then for a bathroom. He got neither from us.

    Anyway, here's an update on the Codex Staff videos. Episode 1 is now on YouTube! So you can see it in much better quality, making it easier to read the little popups. For example, you can see that they are using 3M Super 77 spray adhesive, which I've heard is pretty nasty stuff toxicity-wise, so I'm a little alarmed that Felicia was getting a buzz off it because it can permanently damage the central nervous system, although apparently cross-dressers commonly use it to glue fake breasts to their skin, so maybe its not as bad as I thought.

    Okay, I've rather lost my train of thought now, so I'm going to call it a night. Thanks again Higlet for another blogasmic triumph!
