DAILY MONSTER 42
Goood morning. Thank you for checking in on this, the penultimate day of 2006. We’ve almost got this one sliced off!
But you’re not just running out the clock! You came in with some great stories for Monster 41. New contributor Selma thinks it’s a revived dancer from the Folies Bergères, while Schlockading envisions a violent shoot-out at a tap dancing performance! (This kind of thing happens all too often. It’s tragic!) Victoria wonders if Number 41 is dancing or if Nature is calling. Fair question, Victoria. I’m glad you like the creature either way.
Crimson gets extra geek points for correctly identifying the drum beats at the end of the clip. I have to put those in, by the way, because it keeps the Revver transcoding software from cutting off the last one or two seconds of the clip. Sometimes I snap my fingers, one time I used the beginning of the Housemartin’s Bow Down, but lately it has, in fact, been the opening beats of Dress You Up! Very nicely identified, Crimson! Well done!
The great, eerie story of the day, however, comes from Terry T. His tale of the hunting siblings Toichido and Mei is a strange and beautifully creepy combination of Running Man, Brazil, and Beauty Secrets of the Rich and Famous! Excellent, excellent work, Terry.
Finally, a big shout-out to Mogabog, who has posted amazing, brain-twisting stories every day these last few weeks. He is back with monstrous (yet deeply kind) introspection. Thank you for sharing your brilliance, Mogabog. And to all of you: Every once in a while I just can’t help but gush about all your cool ideas and about your generous spirit. Thank you for being here!
Before I get all verklempt, let me introduce you to Monster 42. He may not have the answer to life, the universe, and everything, but at least he’s got a yo-yo, and that’s a start. What do you think he’s up to? Is he playing in between classes at Monster School? Is his yo-yo actually the size of Ayers Rock? Or is it not a yo-yo at all, but a complex multidimensional computer interface? You hold in your brains the Magnificent Unknown: I know that I don’t know what you know, but I know that you know and I know that you’ll tell us! And that’s one of the reasons that 344 LOVES YOU
