Listen to San Diego Homemade

For the San Diego Songwriter’s Guild May event, we held an informal “Work In Progress” workshop where our members presented songs that were in various stages of production, for ideas as to how they could better prepare them for commercial use. Mark Hattersley, Diane Waters & Tim Mudd sat on the panel and moderated the open discussion.

Toward the end of the night, one of our members and diligent Board Secretary, Al Torres, presented his latest work, the San Diego-centric ‘San Diego Handmade.’ While Diane and Mark offered their thoughts and Al conveyed his promotional ideas for the song, Tim had a different idea…

“While I can tell that you were sincere in the writing of this song, if you look at it in a comedic light, bolstered by it’s late sixties/early seventies production vibe, it’s actually perfect for something very different that’s also relevant and timely. This past weekend, the production team for Anchorman 2 held an open casting in San Diego for the sequel to Anchorman. When I hear this song, all I can see is Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrel) and Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) looking into each other’s eyes with huge grins on their faces as they awkwardly jive away.”

And thus our “Support San Diego Handmade For Anchorman 2” campaign was born. Please sign our petition below and spread the word via your favorite social network to get the word out and create awareness of the perfect San Diego song for the perfect San Diego movie.

Dear Mr. Homme & Mr. Willner –

The San Diego Songwriter’s Guild and the undersigned truly believe that a song inspired and birthed by the residents of America’s Finest City would be an outstanding asset to the comedy of Anchorman 2.

Please listen and join us in our belief that it’s placement in your movie would be a perfect artistic union.

Best regards,

San Diego Songwriter’s Guild and

    Two things that would make the world a better place: “San Diego Handmade” making it on the Anchorman2 soundtrack, and the legalization of Sex Panther colone.
