So sad this joke got cut

Not gonna lie— this one was pretty draining, with pretty much every character in every shot, a few songs, an acapella version of Keeping it Cool that took FOREVER to record, and one of the most complicated mixes we ever had to deal with. See more, including more Thomas, a completely cut montage, and weird Mordecai faces on the storyboard on scribd!

the sound engineers must have taken the day off for the episode of regular show that aired tonight bc all of the sounds were garageband stock instruments. y’all got mark mothersbaugh from devo on yr compositional team and you still published this entry level junk??? c’mon quintel, yr better then that.

Well, allow me to retort. We recorded a way nicer version with a pro setup. It was ultimately decided to use the less polished demo version.

The Mordecai and the Rigbys - Keeping it Cool

Hey everybody! Hope you enjoyed the episode. Here’s the demo of the song I wrote for “The Return of the Mordecai and the Rigbys”, Keeping it Cool. It’s kind of a Nirvana/Thin Lizzy/Journey/Cheap Trick power pop chimera. This is me on vocals, not JG.

Me (guitar), Sean (bass and guitar), Krandal (producing and solo), Marcus (keys) and Clinton (drums) spent a weekend and recorded a hi fidelity version of this. It was a blast playing it live!! It sounds way more professional and you can hear it a little bit in the episode when they’re practicing. There’s no vocals though.

Keeping it Cool pro version

B-B-B-BONUS! Demo of horrible Grunge song I also wrote.

Lyrics:

<Verse>

Sometimes I dream about that AC, AC

Cold Waves flowing over, over me

Feelin’ Hot, maybe it’s a state of mind

Think cold to pass the pass the time

Snowmen and Snowstorms

There’s not much to it

Think things like, ice cubes

Igloos and fridges

Chillax….

<Chorus>

K-k-k-keeping it cool x 2

<Verse>

Sometimes I dream about Ice Planet X

A distant planet way colder, colder than the rest

That’s where Lord Blizzord resides

Think about his kingdom to pass the pass the time

Ice-liths and Ice-henge

There’s not much to it

Getting blasted by ice rays by

Blizzard wizards ice druids

Chillax…

<Chorus>

I’ll probably be on NPR tonight on All Things Considered 5:40 PST/EST, they recorded a piece on Regular Show a month & a half ago. I’m on tape doing a pitch for an upcoming episode of RS.

I imagine the VO would go something like

POLITE NPR VO: In the pitch room, storyboard artist Cal Wong flails his arms around wildly, trying to get the room to laugh.
ME: …& then Mordecai does something hilarious here…. then Rigby’s all like…. “WHOOOOOAH!”

Let’s see how fantasy lines up with reality!!

Anonymous asked: Do you think we would ever have Benson sing on the show? Muscle Man and Pops have so......

You will (sort of) get the answer to this in The Return of the Mordecai and the Rigbys.

Anonymous asked: For someone who likes delving into more of Benson's backstory, as well as possibilities in the present, what is your take on his relationship with Audrey?

I want it to work. Benson’s no spring chicken.

travelingincognito asked: Okay I do feel really stupid asking this but I'm a huge fan and I figured it was worth a shot and you probably get requests a lot but if you could draw mordecai and rigby and the baby ducks in a sort of tattoo kind of style it would be amazing but ignore this if it's out of line I'm sorry

I don’t think I can draw anything in a tattoo style. Too much pressure!!!

travelingincognito asked: how did you get involved in this industry? i am so interested!

It was luck! And skill. Luck and skill and a pact with the devil. Whoops I wasn’t supposed to say that last part.
