DAILY MONSTER 75
Good morning. I’m coming to you once again via the 0.9Kbps/sec Magic of Dial-Up. Yesterday was kind of a lost day here at Daily Monster Headquarters. After 24 hours my DSL is still out to lunch and Earthlink has passed the problem on to the people in charge of the actual copper wires—always a good sign. This came after a little experiment: How long can you listen to the non-rock version of Pachelbel’s Canon in D on a cell phone before your head explodes? Turns out that it takes just shy of two hours.
All bitching and moaning aside, it’s another stripped down Daily Monster post and I hope that you’ll forgive me for it—especially on our anniversary! The 75th Monster.
Seeing all your cool stories come in on Monster 74 brought some real delight into an otherwise frustrating day. Thank you for that. (And if you’re a new visitor—please—you must check out the stories everybody posted for 74. There’s real genius going on here.)
Monster 75 isn’t letting the tech support issues spoil a good groove. Much like Disco Stu, Number 75 doesn’t advertise, but that’s a quietly funky bird. What do you think made it so? And what’s the soundtrack? (Laura, are you still out there? Perhaps this is your time to resume your DJing duties!) Is this another mating display? A way of communicating? Or is 75 just enjoying the moment? I hope you’ll let me know the story!
For now, I hope you’ll have a day of excellent connectivity. May your upstream be strong and your downstream as smooth and delicious as chocolate syrup. Neither sleet nor snow nor twisted wires can change the fact that 344 LOVES YOU
