Hello everybody and welcome to my new blog for Amoeba! I am sure your number will multiply and there will be thousands of you reading this in a couple of weeks. I will mostly be discussing music and new releases on this blog, but I will also be talking a lot about all my favorite tv shows being released on DVD. All of the seasons of Golden Girls are now on dvd -- I will find some way to talk about them. You know there has got to be an amazing box set including all the seasons in some amazing palm tree packaging! I will be talking about the new albums that are getting me excited and the old albums that I discover. Every Tuesday I will talk about everything relevant to me that is coming out that week in both music and dvd. And most weeks I will be talking about Morrissey or one of my other obsessions.

 I just got my tix yesterday to see him in Denver, and I am of course very excited! I might get some more tix for a few other shows. I just might have to. He is finally making his way to visit his fans in the states and doing a real tour after releasing two albums with no u.s. tour. I already made the trip down to Pasadena last month to go see him and the show was awesome! You can't really understand how great he is live until you actually see him with thousands of other crazy Morrissey fans. It really is life altering. Ok, thanks for reading...it's gonna be a lot of fun...I promise...Brad

An Introduction

Posted by Mike Battaglia, March 30, 2007 03:00pm | Post a Comment
Hi there!

My name is Mike Battaglia (aka mikebee) and I'm the Electronica Buyer at Amoeba Music SF. This is my own little section of the new Amoeblog, called Technophilia -- because (to quote an old Adamski tune from the early 90's), I Love Technology. Here I'll be talking about electronic & dance music, its past, present and future -- and the myriad sub-genres and strange connections that populate its world. I'll also be gabbing about technology and how it applies to creating and consuming music; how it shapes what we listen to and how we listen to it. I hope you like it!

 It's exactly what you think it is:


And it's exactly what you want it to be (61 minutes!!!):

Criminally Insane is also available on a Retro Shock-O-Rama Cinema triple feature dvd showcases famed softcore director Nick Philips' other horror ventures, Satan's Black Wedding & Crazy Fat Ethel 2 (aka Criminally Insane 2, made in 1987!).

The Outing

Quite possibly the ultimate EVIL GENIE movie (let's forget Wishmaster, Wishmaster 2, Wishmaster 3, and Wishmaster 4.... at least until I post a complete evil genie filmography) ! '80s teens in peril (pastel wardrobe & all), poor choices & parties, plus "magical" optical effects combine for a good time (aka running length = < 90 minutes).

The highlight is the genie design (that's him on the back) which looks as if it was so cumbersome they must have resorted to pushing him around in a shopping cart to get any movement. The gruesome results are definitely no picnic here.

The only real disappointment is a surprising lack of nudity...
