The Hollywood Ten - Contributing Artist

Mon, Jan 24, 2011


Energetic songs from The Hollywood Ten can be heard in the Week 3 and Week 5 webisodes. It's hard for us to imagine the "party sequence" in Week 5 with any other song than Three Licks. You can buy their music here.


Hollywood 10

Gabrahm Vitek - Contributing Artist

Mon, Jan 24, 2011


Used throughout Bandcycle (extensively in weeks 1 and 2) Gabrahm Vitek lent an upbeat, jazz/pop sound to several of our biking sequences. You can buy their latest album on the band's website.


King Tut - Contributing Artist

Mon, Jan 24, 2011


Bandcycle director Dry Bones has been a fan of King Tut for several years. Their rowdy, rhythmic music has been a perfect fit for the series' soundtrack. Check out our favorite songs "Here It Is And There It Goes" and "Luke's Hymn" on their myspace page

Sandy Eggo - We Finished!!!

San Diego, California
Sunny for everyone except Maj, for whom it was cloudy (metaphorically speaking)


Hey guys.  We thought we'd all share our thoughts from the trip, so below you will find the final blog posts from myself (Dan), Maj, Alex, and Dry Bones.  Please enjoy.  And thanks for all your support and motivation.  We love you all.

20 degrees at night. Frost in the morning. Miserable.


It's the second to last day. Not a ton to report from the road, as we're all just geared toward finishing. It's freezing cold at night, and borderline hot during the day.


We Went to Mexico

Mon, Nov 8, 2010
Calexico, California
1000 degrees


Bandcycle kicks ass. Let's just get that out of the way so I don't have to bring it up again. This trip has been everything I wanted it to be. I've stayed on an Indian reservation, seen a rattlesnake, and now the reason for this post, BEEN TO MEXICO!


1:15 to Yuma

Mon, Nov 8, 2010
Yuma, Arizona
Warm in the day, but as soon as the sun sets someone turns the heater off.


It's Dry Bones. My only image of Yuma came from the remake of 3:10 to Yuma, so needless to say I wasn't quite up to date on what was going on there.

Luckily, we saw a train station in town, so in my mind, our visit was a success.

Hot. Duh.


They have an annual shrimp festival here, and not much more can be said.

Phoenix, Arizona

Mesa, Arizona
90 and sunny.


Phoenix, Arizona. It never rains, yet somehow they have a million golf courses and everyone has grass.

As soon as we dropped down into the desert on the eastern side of Phoenix, the temperature jumped from 50 to 90 degrees. We'd woken up in a frozen tent that morning in the Tonto National Forest, which may or may not have been closed for the season. The whole day was pretty much spent downhill.

The most exciting moment of the trip for me occurred while filming this shot:
