      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.



      Having a donut is like celebrating your birthday on any day you want. A miniature birthday cake all to yourself. Go ahead be greedy, you don't have to share, no cutting slices and passing them around. You get it all to yourself, without the fuss of candles and off tune singing. Some presents would be nice, but sacrifices have to be made if you want to celebrate your birthday two, three times a week. And you can't celebrate with any old donut, thou donuts, like pizza, even when they're bad, they're still pretty good, but when they're really good, it's like eating a bit of heaven. A sort of heaven on earth, if you will. Which brings us to the point of this post. Donut Friend.


      Donut Friend, is the heavenly vision of Mark Trombino. You're probably asking yourself, "Where do I know that name from?". Well, Mark is a record producer, worked with a couple of little bands like Drive Like Jehu, Jimmy Eat World, and Blink-182. So he knows music, but more importantly does he know donuts? And with one look at the menu, it's pretty clear he does.

      Now that you've read the ingredients, you've probably come to the same conclusion that we did. These donuts are practically health bars with all those fresh fruits. Well, now is the time to gas up the car, fill out the vacation card, no show at school, pack up your tent and plan a road trip, because Donut Friend opens next month and you're going to want to get there at least a few days early to claim your spot in line, behind us naturally.


      Vannen Watches, Epitaph Records & LB Art Theatre Present First So-Cal Screening of FILMAGE: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL Plus:Filmmaker Intro/Post Q&A
      Sunday, August 25th @ 11AM at The Art Theatre of Long Beach


      Vannen Watches, Epitaph Records, and the Art Theatre [2025 E. 4th, Long Beach] are excited to bring FILMAGE: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL to Southern California for a FREE fan screening on Sunday, August 25th at 11AM at the Art Theatre [2025 E. 4th Street, LBC 90814].


      Long before Green Day and Blink-182 inflicted punk rock's puncture wound on the map of mainstream music, the Descendents were in a garage concocting the perfect mix of pop, angst, love, and coffee. FILMAGE: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL follows band leader/drummer/square-peg Bill Stevenson and his "caffeinated retardedness" as he pushes his rotating door of bandmates to "achieve ALL," his philosophy of going for greatness at all costs. Stevenson is a force to be reckoned with, proving that not even a grapefruit-sized brain tumor can keep him down. Featuring interviews with the band, along with Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Mike Watt (Minutemen), Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion) Mark Hoppus (Blink-182) and many more reveal the story of a band – if not THE band – responsible for pop punk as you know it.

      This new song by the Vaccines is the jam and I cannot stop listening to it over and over.  And over.  Did I mention and over?



      Alright people, it's time to get comfortable, grab some snacks, pour yourself a drink. Maybe dim the lights because you are in for a good time. You are about to listen to an amazing band called Alt-J.
