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.

CA – Revenge of the Nerd Signing

Actor Curtis Armstrong (Revenge of the Nerds, American Dad, Better Off Dead) signs his new book at Vroman’s Bookstore on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 at 7:00pm.

Risky Business. Revenge of the Nerds. Better Off Dead. Moonlighting. Supernatural. American Dad. New Girl. What do all of these movies and television shows have in common? Curtis Armstrong.

A legendary comedic second banana to a litany of major stars, Curtis is forever cemented in the public imagination as Booger from Revenge of the Nerds. A classically trained actor, Curtis began his incredible 40-year career on stage but progressed rapidly to film and television. He was typecast early and it proved to be the best thing that could have happened. But there’s more to Curtis’ story than that.

Born and bred a nerd, he spent his early years between Detroit, a city so nerdy that the word was coined there in 1951, and, improbably, Geneva, Switzerland. His adolescence and early adulthood was spent primarily between the covers of a book and indulging his nerdy obsessions. It was only when he found his true calling, as an actor and unintentional nerd icon, that he found true happiness. With whip-smart, self-effacing humor, Armstrong takes us on a most unlikely journey–one nerd’s hilarious, often touching rise to the middle. He started his life as an outcast and matured into…well, an older, slightly paunchier, hopefully wiser outcast. In Hollywood, as in life, that counts as winning the game.

OR – Revenge of the Nerd Signing

Actor Curtis Armstrong (Revenge of the Nerds, American Dad, Better Off Dead) signs his new book at Powell’s Books on Thursday, July 13, 2017 at 7:30pm.

A legendary comedic second banana, Curtis is forever cemented in the public imagination as Booger from Revenge of the Nerds – but there’s more to Curtis’ story than that. With whip-smart, self-effacing humor, Armstrong takes us on a most unlikely journey―one nerd’s hilarious, often touching rise to the middle.

CURTIS ARMSTRONG was born in Michigan in 1953. He divided his early years between Detroit—a town apparently so nerdy that the word “nerd” was coined there in 1949—and Geneva, Switzerland, which by comparison, wasn’t nerdy at all. Following a childhood spent mainly between the covers of books, Armstrong discovered the theatre.He studied at the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Rochester, Michigan, which led to a forty-plus year acting career that shows no signs of slowing. After eight years of stage work in New York and around the country, Armstrong was cast in his first film, Risky Business, starring Tom Cruise. It was the beginning of a string of classic comedy films and television shows, including Better Off Dead, One Crazy Summer, TV’s Moonlighting and, most significantly, Revenge of the Nerds, in which he played the iconic role of Booger.Since then Armstrong, a nerd icon himself has appeared in dozens of films and TV shows including, recently, Supernatural and New Girl. He co-created and co-hosted the hit comedy-reality show King of the Nerds, which brought his nerd narrative full circle. He is married to writer Elaine Aronson, and has one daughter, Lily.

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.

Craig W. Chrissinger has been writing about TV, film and books since 1989 in various publications such as Starlog, Fangoria, Comics Scene, the Albuquerque Journal and Locus Magazine. For the Wild Cards series of books, he co-created Ratboy. He also is the co-chair of Bubonicon and edits the Albuquerque Science Fiction Society’s newsletter.
