Greenaid Seed Bombs Are the Bomb

Posted by Amoebite, September 29, 2010 09:22am | Post a Comment
Amoeba Holllywood is on a mission to help you think green with our just-installed Greenaid Seed Bomb machine! The machine looks like an innocent gumball dispenser, but beware -- these are far from candy! Made from a mixture of clay, compost, and seeds, the 50 cent bombs are made to be thrown anonymously into derelict urban sites to temporarily reclaim and transform them into lush green places. Amoeba is the first and only retailer in Hollywood to have the machine, so act now and become a Johnny Appleseed for the 21st-Century! More info here.

Three Mile Pilot is Back with a New Album

Posted by Amoebite, September 28, 2010 11:44am | Post a Comment
San Diego's Three Mile Pilot has always been incredibly popular with Amoeba customers, even though the band has not put out any new material in 13 years. Well, today all that changes -- Three Mile Pilot has a brand new album out now called The Inevitable Past is the Future Forgotten!

The band had splintered into Black Heart Procession and Pinback in the meantime, and finally came back together, returning to the collaborative process 5 years ago. Pall Jenkins says, "It was always our intention to continue with Three Mile Pilot; then suddenly all these years had passed." Finally, their record is ready to hit stereos across the country today!

Brave the sun and come out to snatch up this album for some heat wave listening!

John Coltrane's Military Portrait

Posted by Amoebite, September 27, 2010 12:27pm | Post a Comment
John Coltrane Mug ShotThe Smoking Gun today published this previously unseen portrait of Jazz Legend John Coltrane.

Saying, "In our continuing effort to publish the previously unseen (and rather marvelous) military portraits of famous enlistees, here’s the official U.S. Naval Reserve photo of John Coltrane, the pioneering jazz saxophonist. Coltrane, who would later collaborate with Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk, was photographed in mid-1945 following his voluntary enlistment as an apprentice seaman (Coltrane was 18 at the time)."
