Good morning. I’m getting ready to fly out to Minneapolis today to give a talk to the design team at Target tomorrow afternoon. After that, I’ll head over to an AIGA Minnesota fundraiser. If you’re in the Minneapolis area and are so inclined, please come on by and say Hello.

In the meantime, I’m happy to present the new Weekly Monster. It’s a simple one this time (compared to last week’s Cinemascope witchcraft), but I hope you’ll still like it. (A slight warning: If you’re watching the monsters with your kids, an ever so slightly PG surprise waits at the end of the clip.) I hope you’ll take a minute to post your thoughts and stories about Monster 121, and I do hope you realize that 344 LOVES YOU


P.S.: Make sure you listen to the eminently suitable sound by Flo.

    Hi Inanna. They aren’t guy legs. Cross my heart… And Flo, your sound is genius! Thank you very much for that!

    melvin kept his legs hidden. last halloween, they’d suddenly disappeared out from under him while he was sleeping, only to re-appear in a storefront window with ridiculous lampshades on him at christmastime. the horror! the horror!!!

    Dang, I can’t even think of a story. All I’ve got running thru my head tonight is this song by Paul Nutini. Is it true that shoes make the monster?
    “Hey, I put some new shoes on,
    And suddenly everything is right,
    I said, hey, I put some new shoes on and everybody’s smiling,
    It’s so inviting,
    Oh, short on money,
    But long on time,
    Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine,
    And I’m running late,
    And I don’t need an excuse,
    ’cause I’m wearing my brand new shoes.”

    Ui, ganz schön heimlifeiss, diese Oma. (Der des Zürichdeutschen mächtige Leser weiss, was gemeint ist.) Deutliche Hinweise geben ja bereits die rosa Schuhe… Früher mal war unsere alte Dame mit den knackigen Beinen Varieté-Tänzerin im Moulin Rouge in Paris. Heute ist sie Sonntagschullehrerin auf dem Lande. Was für eine Wandlung. Die Gründe dazu stehen…wer weiss wo.(Die Sonntagschullehrerinnen mögens mir verzeihen…!) Von Zeit zu Zeit spürt sie das unbändige Verlangen nach ein wenig Verruchtheit und dann kann sie nicht mehr an sich halten das Darunter zu Verbergen.
    Allez les jamb(es)(ons)!
