John Hodgman

On a recent visit to Amoeba Hollywood in support of his current book, That Is All,  funny man John Hodgman found some time to entertain our cameras and give us an inside look at what tickles his fancy. Much like his role as The Daily Show's "Resident Expert," Hodgman gives us the low down on several films and artists including, Island of Lost Souls, Cabin In the Woods, AC Newman and Megafaun. He offers up a hilarious trade in deal to all Amoeba customers that involves John Tesh's A Romantic Christmas and Jonathan Coulton & John Roderick's One Christmas At A Time.

Recap: February Charity Auction to Benefit New Orleans

Posted by Amoebite, February 4, 2013 11:54am | Post a Comment

Tipitina's Foundation logoOn Saturday, February 2 we kicked off "New Orleans Month" at Amoeba Hollywood with a rockin' auction hosted by the inimitable and charming Billy Calhoun. Billy's soothing and unflappable style not only inspired some major bidding, but he deftly and seamlessly dropped some science on all the onlookers about New Orleans and the two foundations we were focusing on (New Orleans Musicians Clinic and Tipitina's Foundation), as well as what we are doing on Amoeba.com and how long we have been doing the charity auctions. People learned a lot while they had fun bidding on really cool items. More than a few customers mentioned that they didn't realize we do these auctions every month, and that they learned a lot from all that Billy had to say. Billy educated folks on our Vinyl Vaults and Louis Armstrong digital restoration, as well as the exclusive release of the Congo Square Project which is an amazing collection of music available only on Amoeba.com.

We had several bidding wars, and Billy effortlessly kept the momentum going and kept people engaged. Here are some of the highlights for today's auction---one of the highest generating auctions we have had in a long while. Way to go Billy!!
