It’s tough being my own publicist, I tell ya. The job doesn’t pay, and my client is a major dick. But aside from that, I can’t really complain too much I guess. Just pass along info on “the boss”. *sigh*

As I mentioned earlier this week, the first Synthetic Division music video (created by the talented Dirk Roth) has been made, and I couldn’t be happier about how it turned out.  You’ll be able to see it on Monday... and, yes, like the Joy Division video I posted a few days ago, this one features the Playmobil likeness of the band.  The vid is for the song, “Out of Time” from my CD, A Symptom of Life.  I wanted to share a still and the lyrics to the song, which you can hear on my music player over there on the right side of this blog.

Out of Time by Synthetic Division

Know when, know when to try again
Know when, know when to try again
Decide to take that ride

You’re out of time
And that is fine
Just please don’t ask
for some of mine

Know when, know when you’ve reached the end
Know when
You’re out of time
Just try again

Don’t look into her eyes


I warned you who knew better

Know when, my friend, know when to try again
know when, my friends, know when you’ve reached the end


playmobil-syntheticdivision.jpgLast year’s release holds special meaning to me, because it’s all about survival. The song above is about outliving the limited expectations one faces when dealt with a terrible diagnosis, like, say, HIV.  As a songwriter, I didn’t have to dig too deep to find the inspiration behind the tune.  I am thankful that I’m getting better at tapping into some of the deeper emotions behind my diagnosis. I don’t struggle emotionally with my HIV status, and haven’t for years... but looking back on those early days, months, years, it makes me so happy to just be here.

As a teen, I was obsessed with music videos, back when you had to stay up until midnight to see the good ones.  It’s super cool to have one for my little synthpop duo.  I hope you enjoy it on Monday! 

Have a great weekend and don’t get fooled today.

Positively Yours,
