JRatW EP. 1: NYZPD


Originally published in October 2015, remastered in March 2016, and now finally rerecorded, re-edited, and with a hot new soundtrack!

Tango, Charlie and Jim Robbie play a dangerous game when they visit New York.

Tango and Charlie are two female musicians travelling a surreal post-apocalyptic america with their robot companion Jim Robbie, entertaining and sticking their noses where they don’t belong. The United States that the Wanderers inhabit is full of all sorts of strange and wonderful surprises, from zombies, cactus people, underwater kingdoms to vampires, messed up physics and mad scientists.

A script for those who want to follow along, or who are hard of hearing is found on our website at jimrobbieandthewanderers.com

Arbitrary Card of the Day 8-27-16: Chronomaton

Today’s arbitrary card of the day is Chronomaton. This name is a twist on automaton, a classical name for a robot (originally for one made out of cogs and gears, so fitting). The chrono- prefix is a common one that references time, but the second half of the word comes from the Greek matos, which means thinking and willing. It’s a word related to agency and volition. So this is a clock-thinker, which explains its abilities perfectly. Like a clock, it ticks and ticks up and up before striking on the hour! Pow!
