CA – Mystery Science Theater 3000 Signing

Press Release:

Amoeba Hollywood is excited to welcome Mystery Science Theater 3000 cast members JONAH RAY, FELICIA DAY, and HAMPTON YOUNT for an in-store signing of the new soundtrack Thursday, November 30th at 6pm!

To attend: purchase “MST3K: The Return – Music From The Netflix Original Series” (Shout Factory!) CD in-store only at Amoeba Hollywood on 11/30 to get the album signed and meet the cast.

Stranded in space, a man and his robot sidekicks are forced to watch cheesy movies and cope through laughter—and song! Music has always played a key role in Mystery Science Theater 3000’s irreverent brand of humor, and never is that more evident than in this collection of songs, incidental music and instrumental bumpers from the show’s triumphant return season. Regular cast members Jonah Ray, Felicia Day, Hampton Yount, Baron Vaughn and Rebecca Hanson are joined by special guest stars Neil Patrick Harris and Mark Hamill in transcendent musical moments, all capped by Har Mar Superstar’s dynamic update of the main theme. This is essential listening for MSTies everywhere.

NM – Felicia Day Signing

00000000-felicia-day-2016tour

Press Release:

Bookworks, in collaboration with the UNM Creative Writing program, presents actress, author and internet phenom Felicia Day on Friday, April 29 at 7:00 PM!

Felicia Day (The Guild, Geek & Sundry) appears in conversation with Craig Chrissinger of the Albuquerque Science Fiction Society about her memoir, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost), just out in paperback April 19.

PRIORITY SEATING & A PLACE IN THE SIGNING LINE REQUIRES PURCHASE FROM BOOKWORKS. BUY A BOOK OR AUDIO below or a PAPERBACK at the TICKET link.

PLEASE BRING YOUR TICKET OR RECEIPT TO THE EVENT.

Will call line opens at 6 pm, with doors shortly thereafter.

Instant New York Times bestseller from queen of the geeks Felicia Day, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is a relentlessly funny and surprisingly inspirational (Forbes.com) memoir about her unusual upbringing, her rise to internet stardom, and embracing her weirdness to find her place in the world.

When Felicia Day was a girl, all she wanted was to connect with other kids (desperately). Growing up in the Deep South, where she was home-schooled for hippie reasons, she looked online to find her tribe. The Internet was in its infancy and she became an early adopter at every stage of its growth finding joy and unlikely friendships in the emerging digital world. Her relative isolation meant that she could pursue passions like gaming, calculus, and 1930’s detective novels without shame. Because she had no idea how uncool she really was.

But if it hadn’t been for her strange background the awkwardness continued when she started college at sixteen, with Mom driving her to campus every day she might never have had the naive confidence to forge her own path. Like when she graduated as valedictorian with a math degree and then headed to Hollywood to pursue a career in acting despite having zero contacts. Or when she tired of being typecast as the crazy cat-lady secretary and decided to create her own web series before people in show business understood that online video could be more than just cats chasing laser pointers.

Felicia’s rags-to-riches rise to Internet fame launched her career as one of the most influential creators in new media. Ever candid, she opens up about the rough patches along the way, recounting battles with writer’s block, a full-blown gaming addiction, severe anxiety, and depression and how she reinvented herself when overachieving became overwhelming.

Showcasing Felicia’s engaging and often hilarious voice You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is proof that everyone should celebrate 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 is a professional actress who has appeared in numerous mainstream television shows and films, including a two-season arc on the SyFy series Eureka.She is currently recurring on The CW show Supernatural.However, Day 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 currently available for viewing on every major digital outlet, including Netflix.

In 2012, she launched a YouTube channel called Geek & Sundry. The network has garnered more than 1.3 million subscribers to date and more than 200 million views. In 2014, the company was purchased by Legendary Entertainment. Day continues to act as CCO and develop web content and television projects with Legendary as a producer, writer, and performer. She is also extremely active on social media, has over 2.3 million Twitter followers, and is the eighth most followed person on Goodreads, where she is also the founder of Vaginal Fantasy, a romance and fantasy book club with more than 13,000 members.

Felicia Day (The Guild, Geek & Sundry) appears at Cat’s Cradle on Wednesday, April 27, 2016 at 6:00 PM to discuss and sign the paperback edition of her memoir YOU’RE NEVER WEIRD ON THE INTERNET (ALMOST)! Hosted by Flyleaf Books, co-sponsored by NC Comicon. Buy tickets at the link.

Press Release:

From actress, web entertainment pioneer, and “queen of the geeks” FELICIA DAY comes YOU’RE NEVER WEIRD ON THE INTERNET (ALMOST), a funny, smart, and inspiring memoir about achieving extraordinary success on her own unconventional terms. [On-sale April 19, 2016; Touchstone; 978-1-4767-8566-0; $16.00; Paperback]

Felicia Day has appeared on hit series such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, SyFy’s Eureka, and The CW’s Supernatural (as fan favorite “Charlie Bradbury”). She also costarred with Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion in the Emmy Award-winning internet musical, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.

Most notably, Felicia is an entrepreneur in the vanguard of Hollywood’s digital players. Meeting dead ends pitching her script about a quirky group of video gamers, she created and starred in her own web series, The Guild (2007-2012). Today, Felicia is founder and CCO of Geek & Sundry, an award-winning digital entertainment network (with more than 1.4 million YouTube subscribers and 12 million fans across all social platforms) bringing together fans of gaming and geek culture.

Since the emergence of the commercial internet in the 1980s, Felicia has been an early adopter at every stage of its growth, blazing a trail toward today’s digital world. In her memoir, she is irreverent and insightful about her unusual upbringing, her rise to internet stardom, and embracing her “weirdness” to become a leading creator in new media.

Felicia Day is “delightfully good company and has an interesting story to tell” (Kirkus Reviews), writing with inimitable humor and raw candor about topics including:

• Why You Should Embrace Your Weirdness: Growing up “homeschooled for hippie reasons,” Felicia’s isolation from other kids meant she could unabashedly pursue “uncool” passions like video games, advanced calculus, and 1930s detective novels. She found a sense of community on gaming message boards—forming friendships based upon shared interests and developing the raw confidence to forge her own path.

• Growing Her Geek Empire: Eight years ago, Felicia stood outside of San Diego Comic-Con handing out bookmarks for her self-made web series, The Guild, shot in her own home with a borrowed camera, unpaid actors, and scavenged props. Just recently, she presided over Geek & Sundry’s massive Comic-Con headquarters at Petco Park and spoke to a sold-out convention hall. Tales of interactions with fans both in-person and online range from hilarious to heartbreaking—and reveal how Felicia went from “oddball to odd baller” (Cosmopolitan).

• When Perfection Doesn’t Pay: A violin and math whiz who started college at age sixteen and graduated as valedictorian, Felicia was used to chasing perfection for perfection’s sake. Ever candid, she opens up about the rough patches along the way, recounting battles with writer’s block, a full-blown gaming addiction, severe anxiety and depression—and how she reinvented herself when overachieving became overwhelming.

• #GamerGate: In August 2014, a video game designer named Zoe Quinn was attacked by an online hate mob after her ex-boyfriend shared details of their relationship online, including erroneous implications of sexual favors in exchange for positive reviews of her game. Hackers leaked Quinn’s personal information, she received countless violent threats, and anyone coming to her defense risked becoming the next target. Felicia shares the storm of hostility she encountered after speaking out against the online bullying, how it tied into her history with negativity on the internet, and thoughts about how it changed her view of the gaming culture she has always loved.

With a success story for today’s connected culture, in which technology and entertainment are ever-evolving, Felicia Day urges everyone to celebrate what makes them different and be brave enough to share their unique point of view with the world, because anything is possible now—even for a digital misfit.

IL – Felicia Day Signing

00000000-felicia-day-2016tour

Felicia Day (The Guild, Geek & Sundry) appears at Women & Children First on Sunday, April 24, 2016  at 4:00 PM to discuss and sign the paperback edition of her memoir YOU’RE NEVER WEIRD ON THE INTERNET (ALMOST)! For this event, Felicia will be in conversation with Greta Johnsen and Tricia Bobeda, the co-hosts of the WBEZ podcast Nerdette!

ABOUT THE BOOK:
From online entertainment pioneer, actress, and “queen of the geeks” Felicia Day, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is a “relentlessly funny and surprisingly inspirational”; (Forbes.com), memoir about her unusual upbringing, her rise to internet stardom, and embracing her weirdness to find her place in the world.

When Felicia Day was a girl, all she wanted was to connect with other kids (desperately). Growing up in the Deep South, where she was “home-schooled for hippie reasons,” she looked online to find her tribe. The internet was in its infancy and she became an early adopter at every stage of its growth—finding joy and unlikely friendships in the emerging digital world. Her relative isolation meant that she could pursue passions like gaming, calculus, and 1930’s detective novels without shame. Because she had no idea how “uncool” she really was.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Felicia Day is a professional actress who has appeared in numerous television shows including, Buffy the Vampire Slayer; Supernatural and Eureka. However, Felicia is best known for her work in the web video world. She costarred 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.

Felicia is the co-founder of the YouTube channel Geek & Sundry. Day continues to act as CCO and develop web content and television projects as a producer, writer, and performer. She is also extremely active on social media, has more than 2.4 million Twitter followers, and is the eighth most followed person on Goodreads, where she is also the founder of Vaginal Fantasy, a romance and fantasy book club with more than 13,000 members.
