      FILMAGE UK RECAP

      There's not much we can say about Filmage that we haven't already said a million times before. It is an amazing film that should be required watching for everyone wanting to start a band or make a film. You could hate the Descendents, hate music, hate documentaries, and you will walk away loving all three. We loved it so much we went all the way to London to give our support to the Filmage guys. 

      Grab some popcorn the movie has started.

      How cool is this screening room? Dozens of couches and chairs.

      None of this would be possible without, Mark, Filmage Crew, and Everything Sucks Music.

      LONDON CALLING

      London has called and we have answered. We've jumped on the coattails of the Filmage movie crew and HMNIM is headed to London. The Descendents documentary has been playing all around the USA and is finally going to be playing across the pond. First stop is London, and that's where we get on. There are two showings on Saturday the 16th, 8:00pm & 10:30pm and two showings the following day, Sunday the 17th, 1:30 & 4:00pm. All four screenings will have our very own Mark Hoppus in attendance to make the movie experience that much better for everyone. Sure, he's in the actual movie but that wasn't good enough, he's going to be right there eating your popcorn and talking over pivotal scenes in the movie.

       

      As we did in San Diego, we've come correct with a limited edition Descendents X HMNIM collab tee. In San Diego, we had the black tee edition, for London we played around with a Union Jack colorway, but in the end we decided that was a bad idea, so white it is. With special London edition artwork in the neck, and a hand-numbered hangtag. 300 shirts were printed for the event. Once they are gone, they're gone.

       

      OUR LAST FILMAGE POST...MAYBE

      We know, we know the site has been all Filmage for weeks now. So consider this a week end wrap up of a super fun time. If you were there, then you know it was an awesome film, made by a great bunch of guys about one of the best bands around. 

      There are plans to release Filmage on iTunes and Netflix but those are still far out. Until then, be sure to follow Filmage for the latest news on screenings, events and all things Filmage. Are they doing East Coast shows? Yes. Are they coming to the UK? Maybe. How do we know any of this? We follow them on Facebook and Twitter and so should you.

      And now to the main event, the "meat and potatoes" of this post, and if you are vegetarian or vegan, then let's get to the "potatoes and potatoes" of this story. A little over 3 weeks ago, we joined forces with Vannen Watches to put on a Filmage event in San Diego. We asked Mark if he could do the Q&A, and we waited for his response, and he said...wait for it...."yes". We invited San Diego's hometown radio hero, Mike Halloran to join in on the fun. Mike knows more about music than iTunes. And there the stage was set. Filmage San Diego was a go.

      These fine people circled around the block to catch one of the 3 screenings.

      In between screenings, Mark mingled with the crowd. Nice HMNIM octo hat photo bomb.

      None of this would have been possible without all these great people and that box of popcorn.

      DESCENDENTS X HMNIM SHIRT

      By now you've seen the best collab involving an iconic punk band and an octopus. We can all now thank the legendary Bill Stevenson for giving the Descendents' blessing. But what you didn't get to see, was the sweat, the tears, and the heartache that went into that shirt, sleepless nights, the missed birthdays, all in the name of perfection. Countless renditions and sketches were sent back and forth, back and forth, until one emerged from the rest. It was a hail mary, all our hopes and dreams resided in this one design. And it was all up to Bill. We sent the design. tick tock, minutes turned into hours as we waited judgement. And then it came. "yeah that looks cool" -Bill
