10) Michel Faber

Dutch-born author Michel Faber (Under the Skin, The Crimson Petal and the White) visited Amoeba San Francisco where he picked up an eclectic and esoteric selection ranging from folk to rock to experimental and beyond. He also waxes poetic about the beauty of vinyl packaging and the idea of an album as a book.

Duff Goldman

Jeffrey Adam "Duff" Goldman is the executive chef of Charm City Cakes, a Baltimore-based shop with an outpost on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. The Food Network reality show Ace of Cakes focused on the staff and daily operations of the East Coast shop. Goldman and his work have also appeared on Iron Chef America, Food Network ChallengeMan Vs. FoodOprah, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Goldman's new cake competition show, Duff Till Dawn, premieres January 29, 2015 on Food Network.

Duff sat down with us - literally, on the floor of the electronic music section at Amoeba Hollywood - to talk about some of his favorite music and movies. He kicks off this episode of "What's In My Bag?" with an all-time Hip Hop classic, Eric B. & Rakim's Paid In Full. Next Duff picks up Barakaa documentary film with no narrative or voice-over, but which includes a powerful piece of music featuring "bagpipes on top of Tibetan chanting, on top of Tibetan cymbals." A longtime fan of punk rock, Duff picks up the seminal self-titled debut by Minor Threat, a definite must have for any hardcore enthusiast. Duff also chooses the '90s comedy My Blue Heaven and explains how you simply do not throw Martin Sheen off a building.
