Recap: Charity Auction for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music at Amoeba Hollywood

Charity Auction at Amoeba Hollywood

On Saturday, April 2 we had an extra special treat when our very own Brandon Mather wielded the auction gavel and brought the laughs to help us raise a ton of money for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music. As always, we matched all winning bids raised for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, a non-profit organization whose mission is to facilitate basic music education. Their primary focus is on the youth of the community but all are welcome and encouraged to participate.

Brandon, an actor and comedian who has appeared in short films, a music video, and on stage in Point Break Live, auctioned off a crazy array of concert tickets, collectibles, and tons of other goodies. He was funny as hell and kept both customers and staff in stitches with his quick wit and one-liners. He made it all look easy-peazy, driving up the bidding and making folks smile.

Here are some of the highlights from Saturday's bidding wars:

  • Special vinyl lovers care package + limited edition LPs - $25
  • Beatles pack filled with collectible and fun goodies - $50
  • Rare signed David Lynch Polish Night Music LP - $65
  • Tickets to see Grimes at the Shrine on April 21 - $50
  • Tickets to see Savages at the El Rey April 18 - $30
  • Limited edition Stella McCartney/Amoeba event pack - $18
  • http://sweetgreen.com/Sweetgreen gift certificate - $25
  • Vintage lunchbox with a Trader Joe's gift certificate - $45
  • Membership to Nerdmelt Comedy Club - $20
  • Special David Bowie pack including a rare poster, vintage t-shirt & buttons - $30
  • Amoeba VIP in-store pass - $30 (the winner and his son are going to come see Deftones perform on April 11!)

All together Brandon whipped up $413 in bids which means $826 is on its way to the Silverlake Conservatory! We raised a lot of money for a good cause and a great time was had by all!

Watch Three Dogs and a Monkey Re-Create ABBA's 'Mamma Mia' Video

Posted by Amoebite, April 1, 2016 04:14pm | Post a Comment

dog monkey piano abba video remake

As far as shot-by-shot remakes go, Amoebite Heather Long’s remake of ABBA’s “Mamma Mia” video is among the best we’ve seen.

Our in-house graphic designer also is an animal trainer, and part of what she does is work with animals who appear on TV shows and movies at a ranch called Hollywood Animals. Long started by making a freestyle dog dance routine video for a fellow Amoebite Logan’s birthday. She decided to do it again and ended up emulating ABBA’s infamously stilted choreography from one of her favorite videos.

Watch the video below. If a monkey playing a tiny guitar doesn’t put a smile on your face, we can’t be friends. The original ABBA video is superimposed.

She told us a little bit about the animals in video: Wyatt, Knuckles, Chico and Rupee.

“I do a lot of trick training and dog sports with Wyatt since he is a young, energetic Border Collie mix and needs that outlet,” Long says. “The Australian Shepherd featured in the video is named Knuckles, and he belongs to a dog trainer at the ranch, Rachael. Wyatt and Knuckles are both super high-energy and play non-stop together, so Rachael was down to be a part of it. Knuckles is also a movie dog and he has a lot of training on him.  

“Chris, who is another animal trainer I work with, is the monkey’s main trainer and he has raised her since she was a baby. We decided to include Rupee, the capuchin monkey, because she had learned to strum a guitar for a commercial, so that was a no brainer, and she is used to being around dogs. We used Chico, the Pomeranian, as the keyboardist.  He is also a movie dog — he was rescued from the shelter and is a smart little guy that LOVES to work!”
