This weekend, This American Life played one of the songs from the Dear Mr. Watterson Soundtrack called, ‘A Strange Experience,’ on Episode 512: House Rules. You can stream the episode on the This American Life website or on Soundcloud (It plays at the 4:21 mark of the Prologue). I’m a huge fan of the show and am honored that they used one of my songs…especially on such an important episode that deals with the history of the Fair Housing laws (learn more at ProPublica). I would highly recommend checking out the episode.
We Were Pirates – Kill Me (Part 3)
From the album ‘Dear Mr. Watterson (Original Film Score)’
Available on iTunes and Bandcamp.
Directed by Mike Boggs. Filmed by Lisa Boggs, Kristi Odom, and Mike Boggs.
Dear Mr. Watterson is a documentary about the cultural impact of Calvin and Hobbes. Find out how you can watch it here.
It’s been a long time coming, but ‘Dear Mr. Watterson’ is out today on VOD and in theaters in NY, LA, Toronto, and Santa Fe. It’ll hit more cities in the next couple of weeks. Full list of screenings here. You can also get it on iTunes and VHX.
If you haven’t downloaded the soundtrack yet, you can get it on Bandcamp and iTunes. Oh and LA Times had some kind words about it in their film review. They said: “An enjoyable score by We Were Pirates adds to the fun.”
The official theatrical trailer for Dear Mr Watterson is up and it features one of the songs from the score, ‘Kill Me (Part Three)’. And in case you hadn’t heard, the film drops in less than a month. You can see it in theaters and on-demand on November 15.
Within the past year, everybody I know has started having kids (including sometimes WWP guitarist Gabe Fry. Shouts out to Ambrose!). This is not hyperbole. Everyone. So, if I know you, you have kids now. That’s just how this works. I don’t really understand it myself, but I think it has something to do with science.
Anyway, this is great timing, because Rock-n-Romp DC recently started back up after some time off and we’re playing their next show. It’ll be this Saturday at the DC Meet Market with Your Pal Pete. Pete starts at noon and we play at 2pm. We’ve played a couple of RnR shows in the past and they’ve always been a blast. So, come hang out and bring that happy family of yours!
Good news! Dear Mr. Watterson was picked up for distribution and will be in theaters on November 15! And Paste Magazine was kind enough to give the film score a shout-out in their article about the release.
Hey DC area friends,
The Calvin & Hobbes documentary I made the music for, ‘Dear Mr. Watterson‘, is showing at the Frederick Film Festival in Frederick, Maryland this Saturday, June 29. It’s showing at the Weinberg Center for the Arts at 11:35am. Day passes for Saturday are $20 and you can get tickets here. Hope to see you there!
A new movie opened this weekend called Rapture-Palooza and they play ‘Settle Down’ in a scene where Anna Kendrick and John Francis Daley are bowling. So that’s cool. Some of my favorite hilarious people are in it. Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, Ken Jeong, Rob Huebel…
