DAILY MONSTER 25
Good morning. Today’s special welcome shout-out goes to our friends from newstoday.com. Come on in. Take a look around. I hope you have fun. Great thanks to all the kind souls who have linked to our little experimental story hour poetry jam. Thanks to you the Monster videos have racked up a total of 61,416 views as of 2.45am PST today. The mind reels! THANK YOU!
Let me start once again with some words about yesterday’s comments. You are poets all. From Simon’s sad tale of a good girl gone quite shockingly bad, to the heavily accented tale of paramour par excelance Hernán Luís Salamenejandro, to Rose’s defiant solo prom dancer, to Amy’s cheerleader for women’s soccer (a fine job if ever there was one)—one story is better than the next and all together it’s a multifaceted gem.
Back in the day, one mirror universe was enough. Put a goatee on Spock and you’re done. But this is cubist storytelling. And as far as I’m concerned yesterday’s shiniest reality comes courtesy of our man Mogabog, who gave us Caroline, the girl who wanted a pony instead of a turtle and ended up getting both. For some reason that one made me smile the most. I just didn’t see it coming. (Not that I was expecting Lassi Laski’s career turn as the Toni Basil of the Third Reich, Simon. Ach Du lieber Himmel!)
Playing in the background of it all is “Mr. Lucky” by Vince Guaraldi, as DJed by Laura. Excellent choice!
As for poet Sam / Zula came to life for him / through haiku power. Brilliant!
On to Number 25. It’s a big one today. Could hardly fit this one into the frame, in fact. It’s got a spiffy sweater and eerie powers of persuasion, as you’ll see. Ladies and gentlemen, I have but one question: What’s the story? I can’t wait to find out. Have a great day and try not to be too distracted by the fact that 344 LOVES YOU
