Hey, iPhone folks: if you liked the action figures from Wonderlick's last album, we're experimenting with some Augmented Reality versions of them. You can get digital avatars of the Tim hero and the Jay hero and insert them in your world: below is a picture Tim took of Jay flying outside a building in Norway. You can get them in Zedge: click through to Premium and scroll down till you find the Wonderlick page. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/zedge/id1086101495?mt=8

It's just come to our attention that not every human being on earth is aware we once recorded an original Christmas song. So, while it's still briefly relevant, here you go:
FYI, if you are one of the many people who alerted us that the TMJ website was broken, it has been fixed for now. We assume Estonian hackers will disable all our WordPress plug-ins again shortly, so if there was a specific lyric or old review you were hunting for, you have a probably brief window to satisfy your curiosity.
We're working on a longer-term fix.
Don't know why Google Alerts chose tonight to bring these pics from 1996 to our attention, but here you go...
Had never seen this before -- "Take a Lot of Drugs," live at one of those radio station megafests in Texas.
True Story: For Too Much Joy's first (and last?) national late night TV appearance, we were openers for a group of fainting goats. Oh, and the first Iraq war broke out that night, too. If I'm wrong, Tim will correct me.
Like Uncle Rico once asked, "Did you ever want to go back, Napoleon?"
Well, if you're in NYC tonight, you're in luck.
Tommy and Sandy's band Vicious Cobain plays all your fave punk/post-punk/new wave/alt tunes at 9:30 at The Delancey way down town. They're joined by guitar wizard Steve Hamilton and TMJ childhood friend/Punk Rock Goddess Lindsey Anderson....
All requests written on a $20 bill considered.
Earlier this month, Tim gave a presentation at the annual Pop Conference in Seattle about the time TMJ got arrested for singing 2 Live Crew songs, and what it taught him about the right and wrong ways for artists to engage in activism.
