TCD proudly presents “Time Machine,” a poignant new song (copyright 2012) by Eric Segnitz, introduced and interpreted by Robin Pluer. Segnitz, best known as violinist, arranger, mandolinist and guitarist for Present Music, accompanies Pluer (who, by the way, will spend New Year’s Eve singing with the Chris Hanson Band at Via on Downer.)


Eric Segnitz

Segnitz and Pluer recorded the song, which briefly quotes a waltz by Vidar Skrede, a few days before Christmas at DV Productions, in Shorewood; David Vartanian produced the audio. TCD superintern Breanne Brennan shot the video over the weekend at the picturesque Dretzka’s Department Store, in Cudahy. Pluer chose the location. Many thanks to Dretzka’s for allowing us to shoot there and to everyone for working so hard and so fast, so we can post this beautiful song between the holidays. Special thanks go to Breanne, who spent a good part of her Christmas Eve editing.

The song, a meditation on the passage of time, second chances in life and recapturing the past, fits the day after Christmas. So enjoy this one last Christmas gift from Eric Segnitz, Robin Pluer and ThirdCoast Digest.

    Thanks. Never knew of Dretzka’s. Reminded me of Goldman’s. Sweet song and production.

    If I know that even a model has those, then maybe I can stop hating the sight of my little bulges every time I see them. Yes, a lot of us hate what we see in our bodies. That’s what the fashion industry and the constant bombardment with diet ads does to us.

    Let’s say that this is actually going to happen, how can I proactively protect myself?

    I remember being in high school and using a coal fired forge, for working with wrought iron. I would bet my bottom dollar, they don’t do that anymore.
