A Special Edition of "What's In My Bag?" with Numero Group's Rob Sevier

Posted by Amoebite, December 22, 2011 02:03pm | Post a Comment
WIMBWe have been shooting What's In My Bag? episodes for about three and a half years, but in our latest video with Numero Group founder Rob Sevier, he turns the tables on us a bit. His vision was to give our series the Numero treatment: research its history, interview some of the integral players, and compile his favorite moments and videos from the series.

Rob shadowed us for about a full day, even serving as a host in a separate WIMB with Cheech Marin. He spoke with Brently Heilbron, the host for our very first What's In My Bag? video (an impromptu shoot with Weird Al Yankovic at the end of the registers at Amoeba Hollywood). He interviewed one of the current series producers, and dug deeper into our videos with sketch comedy troupe Human Giant, musician Dave Grohl, Pinky of TV Carnage, internet video sensation Leslie Hall, comedian Neil Hamburger, hip-hop producer/MC Large Professor, and cartoonist Joe Matt

The Jingle Cat's First Visit to Amoeba Hollywood

Posted by Amoebite, December 20, 2011 03:54pm | Post a Comment
Plenty of celebs walk through the doors of Amoeba Music every day...but this one was a whole other breed. At last, the famous Yuletide feline has made his way to the world's biggest independent record store to mark his territory!

We documented the Jingle Cat's first ever shopping spree at Hollywood's music mecca, in a raw, uncensored look behind the scenes that shows you what the secretive meower of holiday favorites is REALLY like. From graffiti-ing our passenger elevator to digging for kitty flicks on the mezzanine, to unsuccessfully attempting to pay for a Cat Stevens record with a seed ball, this tough-talking tomcat proves that he AIN'T your grandma's fluffywuffles.

You love his Christmas carols, now see him up close and personal, and DON'T rub him the wrong way!

Meowy Christmas!
