Beatles LOVE Lamps and Mugs

Nothing says “love me do” like a Beatles LOVE lamp. Who doesn’t love the Beatles? Weirdos, that’s who. For a V-day gift that won’t break your budget, Beatles LOVE mugs are the ticket, for only $10. I personally like the John & Yoko mugs — if there’s a couple who ever made it through adversity and symbolized love above all else, it’s them. Check out all of our Beatles lamps and all mugs. Or pick up the Beatles catalog, recently reissued on vinyl.

Amoeba.Com's Videos Offer Incredible Quality Concert Clips Plus Unique Behind the Scenes Footage

Tegan & Sara @ Amoeba Berkeley

For many years now Amoeba Music has been presenting must-see, free instore events spanning all types of music. For the past several years the folks at the Amoeba website have been diligently recording the majority of these unique instores, and then systematically uploading most of them to our website's Fang Islandimpressive Video Gallery where they are neatly sorted into New Videos, Featured Videos, Browse All Videos, and Upcoming Videos, which tracks which ones are being coded, edited, and/or awaiting approval.
The Amoeba videos are great on many levels. It's fun just to go back and re-watch an Amoeba show you attended and to be able to it see from new angles, and, of course, it's even better to be able to catch up on shows you wanted to attend but couldn't make. Sometimes we will even have a live video stream cast of certain instores that you can watch in real time from anywhere in the world!

In addition to the high quality (both video and audio) of these Amoeba instore concert clips, what sets them apart from typical YouTube fare is that they are not limited time wise to ten or so minutes in length. For example, the Tegan & Sara video at Amoeba Berkeley (above) runs 41 minutes and includes five full songs plus an intro with fans outside the Telegraph Ave store. You can also check out an interview video with the ladies right here. Another wonderful aspect of these Amoeba videos is that they also often include behind the scenes interview clips like the Aceyelone concert video below (including the songs "All Balls Don't Bounce," "Anywhere You Go," "My Fantasy," "Rappers Rappers Rapper...," & "Hardship"), which is accompanied by another ten minute piece in which the knowledgeable Luis from the Haight Street store sits down and chops it up with the famous LA emcee.
