Moonrise Kingdom Trailer (w/ “Le Temps De L’amour”)

Date January 13, 2012

I’m not usually given to posting movie trailers, but for Wes Anderson, I’ll make an exception. The trailer for Moonrise Kingdom came out yesterday and it’s amazing. It definitely has the look and feel (and retro soundtrack) of a Wes Anderson film, with perhaps a bit more sepia-tone to match the 60’s time period (although […]

The Back-to-School Soundtrack

Date August 27, 2010

Above photo is from an awesome film called Brick School is starting back up in the next couple weeks and since we’re big on education here at Music For Kids Who Can’t Read Good, (I am married to a first grade teacher) I’ve made a back-to-school mix inspired by some of my favorite songs from […]

Songs For Dreamers (Inception Mix)

Date July 16, 2010

I’m a self-proclaimed Wes Anderson fanatic. When I first saw Rushmore in my mid-teens, it was a revelation for me and since then I’ve been fully […]

For John Hughes, a righteous dude.

Date August 7, 2009

As you have all heard, John Hughes, 80’s teen-film legend, died yesterday and for anyone who grew up watching his films it feels like a small part of our childhood is now missing. I was just entering the world during his prime years (’84-’86) but I still felt his impact. He was obviously highly influential […]
