Hello from the Library! I have been camping and picnicking all summer long at the Parliament Library! Thay have computers here, and I keep meaning to write on my blogthing, but I forgot the password! Turns out my friend Fuu knew it all along! I can't post any pictures because my Mum has the camera. I am reading books! I am going to be the smartest monkey ever!

But I miss my pal Lumpy. And my Mum. I want to go picnicking with them...

angels in Toronto

My Mum has been very bad lately, and not making any Sock Monkeys at all! Instead, she has been photographing angels! She has an art show up this month at a place called Dark Horse Expresso Bar (682 Queen Street in Toronto, at Queen and Broadview) where they make fancy coffees. Mum really likes the tea there. The show is part of "Contact", thi really big city-wide photography festival. I think the angels are kind of funny. In one picture, the angel is running like he's about to take off into flight. In another I think the angel is very pretty because she is glowing. There's a gargoyle in the show, too, and he looks kind of familiar... I'm not sure what gargoyles have to do with angels, but Mum says they were gardians of places. I think Mum could make a Sock Monkey angel for her next project. She saids it's a good idea! She should always listen to me, because I know good stuff. Make more Sock Monkeys! (But the angels are fun, too, so maybe she can take some more pictures now and then, as long as she keeps making Monkeys...) There a secret page on her website for the angels: Maybe I will add it to my links. Maybe I should get a pair of angel wings...

been a while!

I have been so busy! I've been working on things for my band- like song titles and album titles, and who gets to do what - My pal Lumpy is very excited, but doesn't know what instrument he's going to play yet. Now I should probably start writing songs and stuff like that! I've been listening to all my Mum's records, but I still need a new drum set. I think I should start going to open stages with the Subhuman and the Fairies, too. We still need the most important thing... a name for the band! I wonder if the Subhuman will come and play with us sometimes...

In other news, my Mum, who never has time to type for me (although she's helping me today, thanks, Mum) went and got her own Facebookthingy. How come I don't get one? I think I should get one! And I still want a Myspacethingy like Fuu has!

The picture here is of the Subhuman and my friend Skinny, who is going to be in my band. He's going to play ocarina. He says it sounds like loons singing.

My buddy Fuuzar has a "myspacething" and I really want one of those now, but Mum says I'm way too spoiled already, and I have to play on my blogthing because I already have it.
This is Fuuzar. He's a pretty cool guy. He's quiet, and hangs around with the Subhuman a lot. I think that's because they're both originally not from Earth here. Fuu likes to go out to bars and hang out with pretty girls. He's going to be in my band, as the D.J.

Ilios is my idol

Everyone has someone somewhere that they look up to. A parent, a sibling, a movie star, a super hero, a rock star. Sometimes it's a friend. I look up to Ilios. He is very, very silly and he is a drummer. Drummers are the best part of a band. The Subhuman knows lots of drummers, and they are all very awesome, but I like Ilios best because he hangs out with me. He's going to teach me how to drum like him and maybe even someday even dance like him, too!

Drummers have many good skills. He has very quick reflexes, and can dodge the Subuman's fire breath! When I grow up, I want to be a quick, skillful drummer, and silly, just like Ilios.

get up on stage

Don't just sit there!
Make some noise!

an excuse to make noise

New Years is just
an excuse to
make noise
& dance &
kiss people.
But if you think
about it,
shouldn't every day
be that way?
Why should we wait
for a particular day,
when every day
is a full orbit
of the sun
from that same day
last year?
And what's the thing about
New Years resolutions?
I think I shall
make one -
I resolute
to make
more noise
this year!

music at the lounge

I got to hang out at the Now Lounge with a bunch of other musicians and drummers like me on New Years Eve.
It was fun.

What began as a night of lovely
organized sets by very talented music folks became a wild free-for-all of percusion and sound that was delightfully fun.
Mum even got the Subhuman up dancing. He was there with the band "Camarillo", and there was DeeJay Scootz, and DJ Fuu, and a large number of drummers and other music people, and food and champagne, and funny hats, and those funny little horns people blow at new years. It was great!

happy new year!

I am sorry I haven't been keeping properly up to date with my blogthing here, but this time it's not because of my Mum being so very busy and unable to help me, but this time because I have been so busy myself! I have beeing running and leaping all over the place, jumping around, climbing on things and playing music. I've been at parties, events, bars and Gramma's house. I've been up to so much, I don't even know where to begin, but I guess I'll start with the start of the year...
