Tim & Eric Present: To Live and Deejay LA

Tim "Modern Brit" Shimbles
(Amoeba employee and frequent traveling companion on California Fool's Gold) and yours truly are going to DJ a set of "locals only" music called To Live and Deejay LA on 12 May at the Melody Lounge in Chinatown. (Click here to join the Facebook event page). 



Los Angeles is a big place... bigger than the island of Jamaica in fact. It's home to an estimated 10,116,705 people, making it by far the most populous county in the USA (and home to more people than 43 entire states). The Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim census area is also the mostly densely-populated region in the country. I've had a long and hard think, aided by suggestions, trying to come up with a great list of Angeleno musical acts (and no, I didn't forget Red Hot Chili Peppers). Just for the occasion* I painted a huge map of every community in the county and every neighborhood in Los Angeles which has helped stoke the memory.

Our Top 13 "What's In My Bag?" Episodes Of 2013

Posted by Amoebite, December 27, 2013 10:50am | Post a Comment

Best WIMBs of 2013We are wrapping up our 6th season of What's In My Bag? and we wanted to take a look back at the year that was 2013. It's been a fantastic year for us (we won a Webby Award!!) and this season featured a number of outstanding WIMB firsts.

Lots of love and countless hours of editing goes into making each video happen. They're a bit like our children, so picking our favorites is a daunting task. We tried to make a list of our Top 5 episodes, but that seemed impossible. Then we attempted a Top 10 list, but we couldn't narrow it down. So we settled on our 13 favorite episodes of 2013.

These are the episodes that surprised, excited and engaged us the most. These are the episodes that make us laugh upon repeat viewings. These are the episodes that we send to our friends to make them jealous about the work we do. These are the best “What’s in My Bag?” episodes of 2013. Enjoy!

 

#13. Clairy Browne

The Australian soul singer may not be super well-known in the States yet, but she thoroughly charmed and entertained us. She talks about albums by strong women including PJ Harvey and Queen Latifah, deconstructing Frank Ocean songs, and shares some of her famously misheard lyrics. And then there's her fashion...

Tim & Eric

The awkwardly hilarious comedy duo Tim & Eric are some of the busiest funnymen in showbiz. Gaining legions of cult-like fans from their successful Adult Swim shows (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! and Tom Goes to the Mayor), Tim & Eric continue to bless us with more left field content via their popular website, timanderic.com. They also recently partnered up with fellow comedians Sarah Silverman, Reggie Watts and Michael Cera to launch the new Jash Network YouTube channel. If you simply can't be fulfilled by Internet videos, then pick up Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie. If you need even more Tim & Eric, grab the new film that stars the pair alongside LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy, The Comedy

Tim & Eric wandered into Amoeba Hollywood in search of very specific and maybe even peculiar selections. We got it all on video for another awesome episode of What's In My Bag?. Find out which of the two is a fan of a famous Mexican comedian and which one needs two copies of a 30 Seconds To Mars album. Oh yeah, and check out their very funny impromtu cover of Smash Mouth's "All Star."
