No, I didn’t.
The person who posted the video did - I’m certain she meant “straddled”. If you go back through my older posts you’ll notice I leave the title as it is most of the time when posting others videos.
I do correct Milson to Milsom, and will put correct song titles in parentheses or a star to the right one. I’ll do that with this one too.
it’s the smell in the old music tech workroom at my college
I haven’t smelled it in years now, but I remember it sometimes and it overwhelms me
it’s not like a particularly nice smell but it’s got so many perfect memories attached to it
The first song on Explorers 6 is about it.Explorers 6 , coming soon!

This is the third day in a row, I may turn off anon for a bit…
Hi there. The answer to why he took them down:
The why is basically this:
People think he’s still the “kid” in Internet Love Song and he isn’t - he wants the new fans to see who he is now, what he’s doing now, as an adult.
I have been asked not to post links, but he kindly let me leave the embeds up - if you know the name of the video you are looking for - enter it into the “Internal Search” or do a tagged search, i.e.:
http://fuckyeahtommilsom.tumblr.com/tagged/2.1 ( this was unlisted, but then reappeared - yay!)
This post might be helpful as well.
You’ve been a loyal follower since pretty much the beginning I think. thanks for sticking with me and always sending me nice messages, it is appreciated.
I’m not sure something that passive can be considered a troll
And nope, it’s dense and difficult but it’s got the strongest artistic methodology behind it of anything I’ve ever released. I don’t expect people to listen to it in its entirety. I expect people to leaf through it, leave it on in the background a few times, appreciate the scale of it as an endeavour, appreciate it as a thing that exists and move on. It’s not music to enjoy, it’s music to think about, which is kind of awful but I think perfectly valid at least.Listen to Explorers 3
You’re welcome! I debated posting it when it was only a partial video and was so pleased to see it in full! I’m glad you like the tumblr too!
Hi there! I appreciate you bringing this to my attention, apparently it is indeed gone - but a kink in Vyou lets the ones that I already had embedded still play. So I hadn’t noticed, I just checked my account - I was following him and it’s just *poof* gone.
I can try and remove the link, but tumblr has been not saving edits for shit.
It isn’t released yet!
There has been one blog TV (clear back in November of 2010) where we got to hear a pre-mastered version and two radio podcasts that have had Smell and Cherub in them. He has also performed Cherub and Smell LIVE for promotion at his last gig with Ed.
There are also snippets of these two songs on Vyou
His video promoting the “Explorers™” range has a snippet of “Live In Spite” at the end of it, and “Lines” was played in a Student Breakfast Show about three months ago.
His new edits on his website say “…in a few months” and “Summer 2011”.
His most recent answer to the query has been “CLASSIFIED” on his tumblr, however.
So yeah, until it’s released that’s all we get, sorry!
We do have new song released yesterday though, have you listened to I’ve Got a Fang yet?
Song For The Painfully Indie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlDwkIm9hvo
I didn’t tag it because it’s already in the gif search, though it is a bit buried.
Sorry about that. I’ll add the title under it.
downloading all the illegal uploads of my albums I can find to make sure they’re at least OK quality
aeroth replied to your post: downloading all the illegal uploads of my albums I…Can you send me links to the ones that are good? I’ve been meaning to get some of your stuff for a while.
sure, I’ll absolutely link you to the place where you can illegally download my music for free!
jesus christ fuck off.
musicians who would rather be paid than have people listen to their music really fuck me off. I’d rather be broke and appriciated.
It is all available to be listened to for free on my bandcamp page. I upload music videos that can be watched for free. I ask that people pay for it if they want to own it because I don’t live with my goddamn parents any more and I have to pay the rent every month.
But no, go ahead and tell me that that fucks you off. Please stick with that moral high ground and see how far it gets you in the real world.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE
oh and by the way, this is the last time I’m ever going to talk on this subject because frankly I don’t care enough to get embroiled in arguments about it. I know people don’t buy my music most of the time. I know that over half the people who own my music didn’t pay for it. I’m not gonna get angry about it, that’s the way it is, and yeah I could do with the money but I’m not gonna be a dick about it because you’re right, it’s nice to be appreciated.
What I will always be furious at are people who think it is at all even remotely acceptable to brazenly ask me where they can download my stuff illegally or actually tell me that wanting to at the very least make the thousands of pounds I spend on recording equipment and studio time back through selling my music irritates them somehow.
I was only making a joke, but yeah, I realise a lot of people don’t appreciate the effort people like Tom put into making music.
oh okay. highmaintenancemachine is still deserving of my wrath though.
yes also I wrote all the parts and played all the instruments
I don’t think people get how much Alex’s albums are a collaborative process
It’s amazing really, he works like a conceptual artist, he comes up with an idea and then pays me to create it. It’s a lot of fun and I like it.
The song I recorded with Dan today.
when it’s done and YES
