Monday afternoon may not be everyone's first choice for party time, but Amoeba San Francisco wasn’t about to let something as insignificant as a day of the week get in the way of a good costume contest!

Amoeba San Francisco’s annual Halloween employee costume contest
was kicked off with the spooky sounds of DJ Tay, who came dressed as a Hippie Butcher complete with the head of Jerry Garcia!

Funnyman Sean Murphy served as our Master of Ceremonies and introduced each of our masked miscreants one by one as judges Tony, Donnell, and Suzanne took copious notes.


Julian
lead the charge as…a mailman! 


Then we had a special guest appearance by the one and only Tina Turner! Also known as Nick!


Luciano pillaged the stage in Viking gear.

Pet Costume Contest and Halloween DJ Sets This Afternoon At Amoeba Hollywood

Posted by Billyjam, October 31, 2011 12:30am | Post a Comment
Hurry, hurry, hurry to the Halloween celebration at Amoeba Hollywood today (October 31st) from 2pm to 5pm when there will be a pet costume contest (with prizes) plus special Halloween music spun by in-house DJs throughout the mid afternoon at the Sunset Blvd store. You are invited to bring your kids along too, especially in Halloween costumes, since we will be handing out candy to kids celebrating Halloween. The music entertainment kicks off at 2pm with DJ Frankenfurn who will be spinning for an hour. Then the following hour, up until the pet costume contest kicks off at 4pm, the soundtrack for your Halloween at Amoeba will be supplied by DJ Die Die My Darling & The Annityville Horror.

Winners of the pet costume contest will receive a variety of cool prizes including some items from Catts & Doggs. As you likely already know people really like to dress up their pets for Halloween (see the video below care of UZoo Gallery showing a variety of pets in Halloween costume) so based on this fact coupled with the number of calls of inquiry that Amoeba has been receiving about this pet costume contest, there will probably be a good turnout for this afternoon's event. Word has it that the contest will be a true democratic process with costumes been judged by all in attendance via an applause-O-meter and, regardless of who has the best costume, each pet and their owner will be admired and celebrated by all in the house. So make every effort to attend and have fun at Amoeba and if you are going for the pet costume contest try and get there at least 20 minutes before the 4pm contest start time.

Worst... lollipops... ever.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! It’s almost time for Halloween! And you know what that means? Stressing out about costumes, making the Sophie’s Choice over which parties to attend (basically an exercise in letting your friends know who you like most) and experiencing undue suspicion of apples. (Is an apple stuck with hidden pins healthier if it’s organic? And do child-killers have a preference between Braeburns or a Cox’s Orange Pippin?)

Halloween: the scary holiday. You know what’s scary? How my body can turn two, tiny Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups into a week’s worth of adult acne.

If it sounds like I’m anti-Halloween, know that I’m not. It’s just that, unlike Walrus Day, this holiday bears with it certain responsibilities, just like all the other more pious celebrations. Granted, one usually isn’t pressured to hang out with family members on Halloween (I actually like my family, but a lot of people have to settle for loving theirs), and no-one’s expected to cook lavish feasts (unless you count opening a fun-size Snickers “cooking”), but you are expected to have a lot of fun. This presents someone like me with real challenges.
