TomBoat

NEW! Pre-Order TOMBOAT (includes Instant Download of TomBoot) $10.00

At WindyCon 2010, something incredible happened. On Friday night, the house was rocked as it has never been rocked before, as Tom took the stage with filk-rock band Toyboat (ably assisted by Lizzie Crowe, Debbie Gates of Wild Mercy, and Amy McNally). The resulting madness was one of the best moments of our lives, and now we can share it with you!
We're still working on the final mix and packaging of the main album (including, natch, the main board audio)... but here's a little deal for you: Pre-order the finished album download from Tom, and you'll not only get it as soon as it's available, but you'll immediately get the audience recording Tom made with his trusty Zoom H4, the rough but energetic hour and a half that could only be called... TomBoot! More importantly, this has a few songs which will not make it to the final album, so here's your best chance to hear 'em!
Operation: Desert Storm / 500 Hats / Domino Death / Zombie Momma / I Want My Flying Car / This Island Earth / Rocket Launcher / Gimme Shelter / Return of the King, Uh-Huh / Dervish / Hellraiser / PQR / 307 Ale / Banned From Argo / Would You Like To Play A Game? / Rocket Ride: False Start / Rocket Ride

Who Let Him In Here?

$8.00

Tom's first tape, recorded at various cons in 1990. Somehow, you knew he was going to be trouble.
I Want To Be Peter Lorre / Curmudgeon's Son / Hellraiser / Crystal Gayle Killed Frank Herbert / 307 Ale / Rotten Robin / A Boy And His Frog / Return Of The King, Un-Huh / Serial Killer / Walking Along The Beach... / The Worst Job There Is / Superman Sex Life Boogie / My Unicorn Song /PQR (You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet)

Domino Death

$8.00

The long-awaited follow-up to WHO LET HIM IN HERE? is possibly even weirder. More carnage, more love songs, more livestock. Additional vocals by Anne Schneider.
Domino Death / Temperature of Revenge / Starlight & Saxophone / Divine Irregularity / The Really Sick Note / Ho! for the Death of Time / Sheep Marketing Ploy / I Wish I Couldn't Read Her Mind / Storm Dancing / Operation: Desert Storm / Heat of the Blood

Plugged

$8.00

Now imagine Tom really wired. It's shticks, drums, and rock 'n' roll, celebrating family and freedom, partying in the Caribbean, invoking some Pretty Good Old Ones, waxing eloquent on spam, predicting your future by voicemail, and cramming in pun after pun after pun....

Debasement Tapes

$8.00

Warning: There are no soaring, dramatic lyrics here, no plaintive melodies, no heartstrings. It's a full hour of Tom at his most insane (with help from The Smithtones [Anne Schneider and Karen Foran] and a breathtaking amount of take-out BBQ). Recorded as a house concert in 1999, some of these songs cannot be obtained anywhere else. We're still trying to figure out if that's a good thing.

Live at GAFilk

$5.00

The first filk concert available for secure download! In this case, Tom's GOH set at GAFilk 2001. Wonderfully recorded by Gerry Tyra, lovingly re-engineered by Tom for clarity of both performance and audience, we've got over 70 minutes of music and madness, including:
Get Your Asses In Here / Domino Death / Sister Hazel Plays "Alien Autopsy" / Honey-Glazed Ham / Divine Irregularity / Excerpts from The Rocky Horror Muppet Show / Alien Adventures / Be Our GOH / 500 Hats / The Really Sick Note / Callisto / Time Plot (Aborted) / Five Years / OnLine Religion / Rocket Ride / Denver Does Elvis

Badgers and Gophers and Squirrels, Oh My:
The 24-Hour Project

Download it FREE!

The challenge: Write as many songs as he could in twenty-four hours, based on suggestions from his friends and fans. The final result: seventeen new songs! (Fourteen of which were recorded over the following three days.) Reggae, badgers, rock'n'roll, gophers, Mozart, squirrels, Klezmer, space squids, and a whole lot more... all new, never heard before! Now also includes the songs formerly in "Best of ChiCon 2000"!
Aluminum Dog/ Tamales of Death / Hung Out? Too Dry / Spam in the Street / Chevre No Vas / Pine Gia-Varnish / Badger Pajama / Pickled Gopher / Is A Little VPTR Okay? / Kiowa Timepiece Talking Blues / Pizza-Lovin' Squirrels / RastaMatrix.com / The Feud, The Proud / Theme From "Space Squid" / Aggressively Cute / Wokked Like Any Gypped Chen / Strontium Asp / A Different Kind of Survivor (I Want My Music On Napster) / Hee-Haw Field Earth / Twelve Days of Star Wars

And They Say I've Got Talent

$10.00

Not only featuring favorites like "The Illuminati Polka" and "A Dragon's Lullaby", new madness like "Bullet Time" and "The Ballad of Rupert", but also a multilevel marketing extravaganza:

Homecoming: MarCon 2005

$5.00

If you're not sure where to start with Tom's music, this is it: his Guest Of Honor concert at his 20th anniversary of attending MarCon in Columbus, OH. Fantastic crowd, able assistance from The Great Luke Ski, and award-winning American Sign Language from Judi Miller (you can't see it on the album, of course, but you can hear when she's about to bop Tom for some new verbal atrocity). This is sixty-seven minutes of love, madness, and great music.
Introduction by Trace Hagemann / Return of the King, Uh-Huh / Judi Miller/I Love My Life / Five Years / The Great Lobby Filk / Crystal Gayle Killed Frank Herbert / Smurfin' Safari / The Ladies/I Almost Know You / I Want To Be Peter Lorre / One Ring (Excerpt) / Redbone Does G&S / Lyrics / 24 Hour Comics Day / Badger Pajama / We Interrupt This Shtick / Cthulhu Fthagn / 24 Hour Comics Day 2 / Pirate Ninjas From Dino Island / Orange Lyrics / Talk Like A Pirate Day / That Was Fun / House At Cthulhu Corner / A Boy And His Frog / Rainbow Connection / Why We Love Jim Henson / Callisto / Dead Potters / 307 Ale / Goodbye and Thanks / Rocket Ride

The Last Hero On Earth

$10.00

Maxicron! Amazing Gracie! Fenderbender! These and many other famous heroes stick in the collective craw of the world's mad scientists. Frustrated with their numerous individual defeats, they've united under the diabolical leadership of Dr. Thaddeus Mallevo and Sir Wilfred P. Huffelbaggins III to get rid of the heroes forever with the terrible robot army known as The Sinister Sixty, led by the Kill-O-Tron! Now, only one hero wannabe -- the idealistic everyman who calls himself The Waffle -- stands between the people of Earth and total subjugation!
Pity he's just been zapped across the galaxy....
To hear the first four songs of the album for free, click here.

Sins of Commission

$8.00

One of the coolest gifts you can get for someone is their very own song. Tom's been writing gift songs for awhile now, and the big trick has been to personalize them and make them good songs that anyone can enjoy. Now you can judge the results for yourself, with a full dozen tracks, as well as the slightly remastered "A Dragon's Lullaby". Some silly, some sweet, many romantic. Oh, and "The Very Secret Diary of Dark Wolf", which is just plain goofy.
Come Be My Love Forever / Creatures of the Night / A Dragon's Lullaby / Felis Draco / Kitsune and the Master of Zen / Mary Kelly (Radio Edit) / The Melody Is You / Old Time Movie Romance / Piratical Love / Slow Dance / The Very Secret Diary of Dark Wolf / Worth the Wait / Y.U.R.T. (Your Un-Resolved [sexual] Tension)

iTom 1.0: And So It Begins

$8.00

Funny thing -- you do a song a week for three months, and suddenly you've got enough for a whole new album! The iTom songs released during Aug.-Oct. 2006 are collected here in high-quality 192 Kbps MP3s.

iTom 2.0: Transitions

$9.00

The second iTom collection is complete! A crazed and eclectic mix of brand-new songs, mostly on the subject of change and transition -- from being awake to being asleep, from Republican control of Congress to Democratic, from your S.O. leaving to your self-image leaving, from how much you want to grow up to how much you want to stay a child. Also included is a bonus track, "An Ecclesiastes For Rose", that you can't get anywhere else!

iTom 3.0: True Love Waits

$9.00

Love permeates our existences, in more forms than we can easily recognize. Still, count on Tom to find some of the more bizarre ones. From fake Hallmark holidays to real religious movements, from sex droids to sexual identity crises, from battlefield passion to Renter's Rage, the third iTom collection has thirteen tracks covering love, sex, and romance from a unique point of view. Also included is a bonus track, "March of the PenguiCon", written for the popular Michigan science fiction convention and open-source expo.

iTom 4.0: Smith and Legend

$9.00

Before science, people explained how the world works with myth -- the sun was Apollo's chariot wheel, thunder was the dwarves bowling, Dick Cheney was the offspring of a cockatrice and Elmer Fudd, that sort of thing. Time marches on, but we still have legends and superstitions and weird beliefs of all stripes... and several of them got in Tom's face, or vice-versa, in new and interesting ways. From warning labels to Wikipedia, from sidekicks to space opera, and including two zombie apocalypses (apocalypsi?), Tom once again brings the weird, the wacky, and the occasionally poignant. The bonus track is a rockin' cover of Leslie Fish's seminal space anthem, "Hope Eyrie".

Songs of The FuMP, Vol. 1

$9.00

The Funny Music Project is changing the face of comedy music -- and Tom's the left nostril! This collection of all the songs written for The FuMP in 2007 includes "EULA Dancing", "Ultimate Ultimate Christmas", the viral hit "Cat Macros", "CYA" (with guest appearances by most of The FuMP), a live performance of "Spoiler Alert", and both the original version of "Tech Support For Dad" and a live version featuring Tom's dad! Also included is "Driving Through Ohio", previously only available on the Earpicac fundraising CD for Con On The Cob. You want The FuMP? You got The FuMP!

Sins of Commission 2

$9.00

Another collection of songs written on commission, including romance, fantasy, familial superheroics, gaming silliness, a tribute to the late Jim Baen, a theme for the online journal Anthrozine... and, at last, many of the songs Tom's written for some of today's coolest and most popular web comics, including Kevin & Kell, Accidental Centaurs, and Something Positive!

More Than FuMP:
Songs of The FuMP, Vol. 2

$9.00

Ready for this? About half the songs on this album are specifically for kids. ("Who The Fuck Is Matt" notwithstanding.) Truly, the Tom are a-changin'. Anyhow. here are all of the songs Tom did for The FuMP in 2008 and the first half of 2009, with a few non-FuMP ditties along the way. As usual, nothing is safe -- zombies, pirates, ninjas, Dr. Horrible, Death Note, research animals, bunnies, Jonathan Coulton, food, love itself. And Watchmen. Don't forget Watchmen. Also, "Stony Peak" and "I Had A Shoggoth" have been remixed from their original FuMP releases, with even a new joke here and there!

Live Shows

Each of these is one or two very large MP3s, from either conventions or house concerts. Apart from being minimally processed for clarity, these are pretty much as recorded, with all the shtick, banter, improv, and blown chords or lyrics intact.

Thing is, he's always had these studio versions of his songs in the back of his head. Well, finally, he found the little hatch at the base of his neck, opened it up, and is working those songs out one by one. New arrangements, new vocals, and maybe even some new jokes!
