New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with Lance Henriksen at Amoeba Hollywood

Posted by Amoebite, March 13, 2013 11:58am | Post a Comment

Some of the coolest people visit us at Amoeba Hollywood. We had the utmost pleasure of hanging out with Sci Fi/Horror film fan favorite, Lance Henriksen. Many of you know Lance from his character Bishop, the Android he famously played in the Aliens films franchise. Lance hung out and shopped around for a few things. He's got some pretty interesting picks such as the classic French drama 400 Blows, and who would have guessed Lance digs Hip Hop? See for yourself!

Not only is Lance Henriksen a staple when it comes to awesome Science Fiction films, but he is now a bonafide comic book author! Henriksen and co-author Joseph Maddrey held a special signing at Amoeba Hollywood to unveil the 5 issue series, To Hell You Ride (DC Comics). To Hell You Ride starts off by introducing the character Two Dogs, a forgotten Native American plagued by booze and his disregard for society. Two Dogs is reawakened by the spirit of his ancestors and with their guidance he is led to avenge his land and his people. There's a flesh eating curse, mad scientists, and lots of bloddy horror. Tom Mandrake brings it all together with some amazing illustrations. It's a good one! The fans came out to support Lance and his new comic and everyone had a blast! If you missed all the fun you can check out some photos of the signing below.

Time For A New Favorite T-Shirt

Posted by Amoebite, March 11, 2013 06:55pm | Post a Comment

With the first day of spring nearly a week away, I'm going to take the time to clean out my closet a bit and get rid of all my old T-shirts and socks with rat holes in them. Seriously. I personally know how painful it can be to get rid of an old T-shirt, but I don't want to walk around looking like a scrub come springtime.
 

Rats! - You Ruined My Shirt!
Hey Rat! You destroyed my favorite Spin Doctors tee!


Lucky for me, this opens up a lot of space in my closet for new shirts. All three Amoeba stores have gotten in all sorts of new shirts lately that are soft to the touch on my delicate winter skin. Not just rock shirts either, but there are some hip-hop, folk, jazz, and even film-related shirts.
