DAILY MONSTER 80
Good morning. Welcome to a new week of monsters. I hope you’ll have fun on the site. Please take a few moments and enjoy the brilliant stories the monster stalwarts have cooked up over the weekend!
Monster 79 has surprises up its sleeve. Or up its pants, as the case may be. And I mean that in an entirely G-rated hydraulic sense. But he’s clearly annoyed, this one. Not exactly furious, certainly, but not a happy camper, either. What’s his beef, do you think? And what’s he mumbling there at the end? Who is he talking to? Is he telling the truth? Is he dissembling? Opining? Or is he a gruff poet of science? A Byron of the Bunsen Burner? A Petri Dish Pushkin? And if so, how does his particular ability to go vertical affect his writing? If, indeed, it does? I know you’ve got stories that want to find their way out of your head and onto this page. Today’s the day:
I’m looking forward to another week with you as we get ever closer to Monster 100.
(If you’ve not posted a story on the site, I hope you’ll seize your chance while you can!)
If words aren’t your thing, perhaps the monsters will move you to make some music. Check out this well-lubricated loop from long-time monster associate Richard Murrey of the Chevy Ford Band. It’s called Mu-Bablek.
Maybe you’ll be inspired by this link from German monster fan Jens Wunderling. (I know I was.) There are all kinds of ways to get in on the monster action and as we build towards the inky crescendo of this little experiment. (I’m still waiting for footage of an interpretative monster dance, for example.) I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
In other news, I’m planning on printing up a Daily Monster T-shirt in the next few weeks and I’d love to get your opinion: Out of the 80 monsters so far… which one would you most like to wear? Please let me know your favorite!
For now, I hope you’ll have a great week! Make it a good one,
and if you have Chinese food today, don’t be surprised
if the fortune cookie tells you that 344 LOVES YOU!
