Travelers of Tyme present “Music for Lovers!”

February 14, 2011

FREE STREAM OR $2 DOWNLOAD - http://tyme.bandcamp.com/album/music-for-lovers

Travelers of Tyme engineer music precisely for holidays such as St. Valentine’s Day, a complex and contradictory day. For some, it is a day of romance, of flowers, sweet kisses, and nostalgic, warm conversation. For others, it is a day of heartache, of loneliness, and perhaps dark fantasies involving the Hallmark company and the calling of robotic minions to do biddings against the makers of cards. Regardless of where you find yourself this February 14th, we encourage you to lower the lights, pour a snifter of wine or whiskey for yourself and your special friend, if you have one, and switch on “Music for Lovers.” The Travelers cannot guarantee you will enjoy all of your experiences on this planet — but we CAN guarantee that we will make them sound better!

So go ahead, talk softly over “Music for Lovers.” Clink your glasses, kiss your kisses, whisper your sweet nothings into real or imagined ears. “Music for Lovers” is music meant to sway softly in the background, like a silhouetted palm tree in a warm, sea breeze. It is music to live to and, of course, music to love by!

(Note: listen at work and watch your productivity increase by 40%!)

Thank you, as always, for choosing Travelers of Tyme for all of your musical wallpaper needs. And Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your beloved, whether in flesh or fantasy.

Picture it: a lonesome subterranean train platform. A balding man in a rumpled black suit stands, waiting, anxiously checking his watch, too often. He rocks on his heels. His train is late, so very late. And what is his final destination? Not one of us can answer that with any certainty, can we? So we might as well be patient. (Just don’t tell that to the Waiting Man. Our secret…) 

An empty train arrives – but it’s not the Waiting Man’s train. As the doors open, they unfold in slow motion as a beautiful brunette in a crisp pant suit emerges like a swan from a swirling gray mist. She seems not to walk but to hover, gliding across the platform, a gorgeous spectre existing beyond Tyme and space. With a wink and a slight smile to the Waiting Man, she mounts the escalator and is carried into an unknown fog above. What is her final destination? Who can say? Perhaps she has already arrived!

As for the Waiting Man, his train is still running late. And it always will be.

ALWAYS.

The Travelers of Tyme present “Misty Businesswoman” b/w “Last Train to Limbo,” 2 songs constructed using sound samples of the Washington DC Metrorail. Whether you are waiting, in transit, or have already arrived at your destination, this music is specially designed to enhance your travel experience.

Thank you for spending six minutes and fifty-five seconds with us. We hope that you enjoy the rest of your Tyme in this Universe. It is a pleasant one.

Cordially,

JUKEBOX OF THE DEAD “FAME” PODCAST – Episode V : This is It

October 29, 2009

My head is pounding as I write this… I’m not sure what’s happening to me. I have a new aversion to sunlight and have a desperate need for air.

I sleep inside of an oxygen tank now. Little children are afraid of me.

It’s almost getting to that… point. Where I feel like… I feel like this is… this is really it…

EPISODE 1 – NEVERLAND
EPISODE 2 – HERE’S JOHNNY!
EPISODE 3 – THE MAN IN THE MIRROR
EPISODE 4 – THE CHOICE OF A NEW GENERATION
EPISODE 5 – THIS IS IT (new this week)

See you on Saturday. I hope.

Pray for me.

JUKEBOX OF THE DEAD X “FAME” Podcast – Episode II : “Here’s Johnny!”

October 2, 2009

Hello.

I have undergone the second stage of my transformation.

I’m not sure how I feel. A little green around the gills, I guess.

If you’re just tuning in, check last week’s post. I went out to L.A. and had a little… accident.

It had to do with a brush with FAME.

Literally.

I’ll be posting the story as I remember it…

EPISODE 1 – NEVERLAND
EPISODE 2 – HERE’S JOHNNY! (new this week)

See below for the adverts. I don’t really have the energy to write any more…

FAME?  WHY FAME, YOU ASK?

After 10 years of picking through the candied detritus of pop music’s underside at Halloween – and after 13 years almost to the day as a band – Detholz! have been locked away in recent months, chewing on our thumbnails, reflecting on the fleeting nature of mortality, the preservation of our legacy and, most importantly, the liberal application of exfoliating lotions.

To that end, I had occasion this week to visit my Los Angeles offices (don’t ask) for a very special Tuesday appointment.  The meeting, as it turned it out, went very poorly.  Extremely so.

In fact, I barely escaped alive.  But I did escape.  And was… transformed.

I kept a verbal record of this experience on my dictaphone for my secretary, Jean, that I am posting here for all the world to hear.  And, on Halloween, we shall emerge from our chrysalis for all the world to see:

FAME and FORTUNE

SUCCESS and TRIUMPH

REMEMBER

REMEMBER

REMEMBER…
