The Power

From the minds of Stephen Carpenter & Jeffrey Obrow, directors of Video Maniacs' faves The Dorm That Dripped Blood & The Kindred! Thankfully this film didn't stop them and Carpenter went on to write the Martin Lawrence vehicle Blue Streak.

If anyone is feeling generous, this poster would make a great addition to my office.

The Employee Interview I: Zack

Posted by Miss Ess, March 31, 2007 06:32pm | Post a Comment
In following with both the fact that Amoeba hires only the most insatiable and voracious music enthusiasts, and the fact that we of course all learn from one another, periodically I will be posting interviews with staff members. In this edition, I discuss with San Fran's own Zack his musical past and present, among other things.

The Employee Interview:
Zack
4+ years employed at Amoeba

Q:  What was the first music you remember hearing as a kid, before you had a say?

Z:  "Back in the USSR," "Good Vibrations," and the "Monster Mash." My dad would play these while he got me dressed on the couch in the living room before preschool.

Q:  How have these songs influenced your musical likes and dislikes?

Z:  With the Beatles, it gave me a great pop foundation for discerning melodies I like and dislike, but as I got older I really couldn't take the Beatles anymore and had a long stretch of being completely over them while I explored other musical avenues. Since the birth of MY son I have embraced the Beatles once again, having had enough time off and being able to hear them again for the first time along with him.

Q:  What was your first concert?  Last?

Z:  First concert was the Kinks at the Palladium in LA, '87 and my last was the Melvins at Great American.

Avenging Force

I agree:

The super secret Pentangle organization:

In 1986, action star Michael Dudikoff reteamed with his American Ninja director Sam Firstenberg (Ninja III: The Domination, Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo) & costar Steve James (The Exterminator) for another Cannon Pictures quickie. Steve James is a leading black political candidate. Pentangle is a mysterious, rich & racist organization with its own agenda. Somehow a vengeful Michael Dudikoff is caught between them in a Most Dangerous Game man-hunt scenario. Thankfully, Dudikoff "employs an awesome array of martial arts skills in his desperate fight for survival... and revenge!"
