10 Things You Didn’t Know About Timeflies

Timeflies
Mike Pont, FilmMagic

Rob ‘Rez’ Resnick and Cal Shapiro of Timeflies mix all sorts of genres. Their palette consists of pop, hip-hop and electronica, and the end result is unique and indefinable.

Since we have always been so intrigued by their music, we decided to ask Rez and Shapiro to offer us 10 facts, figures and quirky details about themselves. They didn’t disappoint. It’s a crash course in Timeflies and what makes ‘em tick.

They weren’t too detailed with their replies, but that only helped them maintain their mystique and left us wanting to know more and wanting to delve further into their tunes.

Find out who is terrified of a nut-loving animal; who has a nail-biting problem; who has never tasted the sweetness of a strawberry — WTF right?; who didn’t graduate; and who is a balsamic vinegar fan.

Anyone notice the recurring theme? The Timeflies dudes clearly like food and eating, but who doesn’t?

Get to know Rez and Shapiro a little bit better via this exclusive 10 Things You Didn’t Know. Oh, and for fun, watch them play Pop the Question with us.

One week we made a Timeflies Tuesday called 'How to Boot' after Rez smelled rancid chicken and threw up. We decided it was a little too graphic, so we had come up with something else. The next day, we recorded 'Under the Sea.'
