My brothers Asher & Sam had a band with our friend Jru.
This was my favorite song they did.
They called their genre “surf punk”
5 & a half years ago, I asked my friend Cadence to rap over my favorite Donkey Kong Country 2 song.
Then Cadence & I accidentally ended up filming a web series together. I was called Boy Friends. It was supposed to be a grammar pun. I was worried people would find us homophobic, but as it turned out the homophobic community hated and feared us as if Professor X himself was raising us to fight some sort of gay war against them. We loved that.
Here is the episode this song is from:
And here is some footage I have of Cadence & I writing it together. One night in January, five and a half years ago. Before he was married, or a father. Before I was engaged, and a writer.
The best part of all this was the email David Wise sent us. He was the composer fo the original song. He liked it.

There is a person or two in Los Angeles called Atomic Mix Lab, and they make music for teaser trailers. Two years ago I found this song (attached to a the Amazing Spider-Man trailer) and listened to an audio-only copy of the song on repeat while I worked three months straight on Spell Saga.
