Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes!

Tuesday night found some of us working after hours at Amoeba Hollywood for our latest change. I'm going to go through these changes quickly, so pay attention!

Most music DVD's  (Rock, Hip-Hop, Soul, Reggae, Country, Oldies & World) are now located where the posters and books used to be, behind the information desk. Jazz, Pop Vocal, Classical & Opera DVD’s remain in their sections.
Posters have moved where the World Music DVD's were once located
(along the stairs)

AND

to Aisle 7, which once housed Experimental music.

Experimental Music and 78's have moved into our Jazz Room.
 
Books and Magazines are now located behind the Country Music.
 
All cassettes are now located against the west side wall.

The move allows the DVD movie section to expand. Blu-Ray Movies are now along the west wall which once housed the Black and Latino Cinema.  There is an expanded clearance movie section and all other movie genres have expanded as well.

Downstairs, the Goth, Black Metal, Reggae and Electronica have a little more room the breathe. Whew!

Confused? I don't blame you. I'm a little myself.

This is the best solution I could think of:

You’ll just have to come in and check it out yourself. What better time than Friday, March 28th at 7 p.m., just in time to check out Tita Lima’s DJ set. Tita released an Amoeba Hollywood favorite, entitled 11:11, back in 2006. She comes from Brazilian Rock royalty (she is the daughter of Os Mutantes' bass player) and has performed with such prestigious Brazilian artists such as Bocato, João Donato, Luz de Caroline, Núcleo and Dori Caymmi.

My suggestion? Listen to Tita spin her favorites and check out the many changes we have made in our store for yourself.

Personally, I like it. The changes make sense for all us non-collector types.

THE ORIGINAL RECORDED SONG, NEW CASSETTE TECHNIQUES

Posted by Billyjam, March 27, 2008 07:44am | Post a Comment

There is a really interesting article in the Arts section of this morning's (Thursday, March 27) New York Times about newly uncovered research that challenges the belief that Thomas Edison was the father of recorded sound. This new research claims that even before Edison had recorded his first sounds a French man named Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville recorded a ten second sound bite of a female vocalist singing a French folk song (Au Clair de la Lune) back in 1860. However, it was not recorded onto a record but rather on a "phonautograph" or "phonautogram" (as seen in photo left) which was in turn recently made playable - by converting the written images on the paper into sound - by scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Library.  If you click on the NYTimes story, not only can you read about this amazing discovery in detail, but they also have an MP3 sound file of this historic 10-second 1860 recording.
                                                                                                                                                                                                 
When you stop and think about it, it is truly amazing how far we have come in the advancement of music recording and playback in the short time span (relatively in the history of mankind) since Thomas Edison (pictured right) first invented the phonograph in 1877 and unveiled it a year later to an amazed public.

Let Us All Celebrate with a Cool Refreshing Dr.Pepper!!!!

In what may be my favorite marketing ploy of the year... Dr. Pepper has offered to give everyone in America a free Dr. Pepper if Axl Rose decides to release his long awaited Guns N' Roses album, Chinese Democracy in 2008.

Only Buckethead & Slash are exempt from the promotion. In response Axl says he will happily share his with Mr.Bucket.

Let's all hope this happens soon because the Amoeba breakroom tends to run out of Dr. Pepper towards the end of the week.
