Funko's 'Pop!' Toys Invade Amoeba Hollywood

Posted by Amoebite, June 3, 2015 09:12am | Post a Comment

funko pop toysToy maker Funko’s massively popular “Pop!” vinyl figurines have come to Amoeba Hollywood in a big way.

We first started carrying the 3.75-inch tall toys, which resemble pop culture icons with enlarged heads and eyes, when the company made music figurines for the likes of Michael Jackson, Tupac and The Beatles. Now as they’ve grown in popularity, we’ve begun carrying Funko’s Pop! collectibles from all realms of the pop culture landscape.

“It keeps growing and growing,” says Amy Pennington, a buyer for Amoeba. “I think it was this past Christmas when we realized how popular they were and that we should devote an entire section to them.”

The Funko figurines now mostly reside in their own section between books and soul music, along with more pop culture goodies like vintage-style lunchboxes and Beatles collectibles.

Figurines in-store come from TV shows like “Game of Thrones,” “Adventure Time” and “Breaking Bad”; films such as Frozen and Guardians of the Galaxy; and franchises such as “The Avengers” and “X-Men.” We’re also carrying some of Funko’s cultier offerings, like Howard the Duck and the Bride of Frankenstein.

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode With Strand Of Oaks

Posted by Amoebite, May 26, 2015 05:07pm | Post a Comment

Strand Of Oaks

Strand Of Oaks is the brainchild of singer-songwriter/producer Timothy Showalter. The Philadelpia-based Strand of oaksmuscian crafts anthemic stadium ready choruses drawing inspiration from classic folk-rock while making his own unqiue brand of modern Americana. Now signed to the the Dead Oceans label, Showalter finds himself in great company with the likes of Akron/Family and Bishop Allen, to name a few. For his label debut, Showalter manages to take folk-based song ideas and turn them into rock gold. Pulling from personal life woes, Showalter uses his self pitty and pain of a failed marriage to create a well-produced record filled with classic pop characteristics. He's got big drums, big hooky choruses and just the right amount of distortion. Strand Of Oaks' HEAL is out now on LP and CD.  

Timothy recently visited Amoeba San Francisco and picked up some great albums. He first digs up a vinyl copy of Security by progressive rock icon Peter Gabriel. He follows that with Boston folk singer Marissa Nadler's July and Future Islands' In the Evening Air. A true fan of great songwriting, Timothy digs far and wide. He also picks up albums by Nick Cave and Kurt Vile and talks about some nostalgic music from his childhood. Watch the full What's In My Bag? episode below for all his awesome picks.
