The Breakups on GOSSIP GIRL

March 8, 2010

The breakups have a song on tonight’s episode of GOSSIP GIRL (9/8c, CW).  I watch this show. Often with my friend Caged Heat. Yes, that’s a nickname not a metaphor. The band tells me that “Tissue Sample” will be used.  No word yet on which inevitably sordid scene will backdrop their tune.

I’ve licensed the breakups’ music for 90% of my projects – most recently for APPOINTMENT IN VANCOUVER. Glad GG finally got on the bandwagon.

Music on USA’s PYSCH

February 10, 2010

The breakups have a song on tonight’s episode of PYSCH (10/9c, USA).  I have never watched this show but am considering doing so tonight. The band doesn’t know which song, but I’m certain it will be power-pop-perfect for an episode in which “Juliet asks Gus to help her track down an old boyfriend, inadvertently exposing a dark and closely-guarded secret.”

Considering I’ve licensed the breakups’ music for 90% of my projects  (most recently for APPOINTMENT IN VANCOUVER), I’m a fan of their musical magic being shared with fans of a quick-witted comedy/drama starring James Roday as young police consultant Shawn Spencer who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute that Santa Barbara PD detectives think he’s psychic.

Breaking Up for Christmas

December 27, 2009

I’ve put a breakups song in most the movies I’ve made. If there’s a way, I set those indie power pop ditties to picture!

  • “Treadmill” in QUEEN OF CACTUS COVE (I get comments from strangers about how much they love this song.  Trivia: I asked the breakups to remove “fucking” from the lyrics (QoCC wasn’t a ‘fucking’ kinda movie) and they did!)
  • “A Day in the Sun” in THE BREAKUP
  • too many to name in LILYDIDIT videos
  • “Isolation” in APPOINTMENT IN VANCOUVER

Their frontman Jake is possibly the nicest bearded-man I’ve ever met, so it’s no surprise that he’s delivered a special holiday treat for all the breakups fans out there.  The gift of song!

I think this means there’s a holiday movie with my name on it in the future.

About this song in Jake’s words: “A brand new mix of our smash hit collaboration with the sweet hurt, “breaking up for christmas,” is available online for your listening pleasure.  Since MySpace is spending the end of the decade keeping Friendster company in the social networking grave yard in the sky and Facebook is so confusing you need to go to night school just to figure out how to post an event, we decided the best place to post the song would be on YouTube.  Why not?  Is there a video to go along with it?  You bet there’s not.  That’s what your brain is for!”
