Episode 135: Accidentally Wes Anderson: The Postcards

I ordered two sets of Accidentally Wes Anderson: The Postcards in July. And then I kept looking at looking at the AWA Instagram site, anticipating the U.S. release of those cards on October 11. Yes, I knew the date. This was exciting stuff.

Guess what? As soon as I saw the postcards I knew I needed two more sets because I used this hashtag when I sent the first ones: #onetosendonetokeep. Yep, for every one I sent I knew I had to keep one. They’re that cool. Other people are doing the same.

Which brings me to something cool: While the launch was going on, Wally Koval, the author of the NYT Bestselling book Accidentally Wes Anderson, took time out of his day to have a chat about the book, the postcards, and how AWA has cultivated a very engaged and creative community.

    You are so smart! Before you said you had bought more sets of AWA postcards, I had planned to make you an offer you couldn’t refuse. I would send you an AWA postcard and you would send me the same one so we’d each have our own to keep! Never mind. I will now have all 26 for myself and another set, or maybe more, to send! They are much more than I expected!

    Such an interesting show!!! I really enjoyed it. And it is so cool, I bet we will all listen more than one time. The project is fantastic, so are the cards and the idea of a community that can contribute and build something we can all enjoy. Plus, I LOVE Wes Anderson movies and go around looking for references everywhere. Thank you!
