WEINLAND on MTV | World Of Jenks II

We were lucky enough to be included in another episode of World Of Jenks!  They used Breaks in The Sun and People Like You.  Pretty exciting.  I was particularly surprised and impressed with what they did with Breaks in The Sun.. to get it to work they re-arranged the parts a little bit.. which actually ended up being really cool.  You have to geek out and listen through the dialogue to hear the changes.. but if you do.. its neat.  The chord changes they inadvertently (I’m assuming) create are super cool.

Watch this episode of World of Jenks.

WEINLAND on MTV | World of Jenks

World of Jenks | WEINLANDOn September 20th, 2010 WEINLAND’s music made its MTV debut on a television program called World of Jenks.  Not having seen the program before I had to do a little research to get a sense for this event and its meaning..

World of Jenks is a 1st person MTV documentary series that follows the real life person Andrew Jenks as he spends a week at a time hanging out/living with an individual of interest.  Each week a new person of interest is introduced.  The show happens in acts and seems to have a knack for revealing the inner beauty behind human struggle.  In a way it has a very This American Life feel.. but for people that haven’t yet realized that one day, when they’re older, they will be addicted to NPR.

How did this happen?
