Just applied for what could be a wicked-cool job. Fingers crossed, people.

Whoops. Too much work right now. Forgot about a couple of projects no less, like Skinny Monkey. So sorry folks, if you were hoping for another Dalek post.

Daleks and Limited Editions

There's an exclusive, limited-edition Dalek for sale, pictured below. Only 1500 ever made. Similar to the elusive, limited-edition Imperial (white and gold) ones, of which only 3000 were made.

How to make an exclusive Dalek:

1) Take the body of a normal Dalek
2) Put a black head on it
3) Make only 1500
4) Exploit

And yet knowing this, I want it SO badly. Yes, we've discussed how I have a problem. No, there's no twelve step program. Yes, shut up.

Great nightlife here. After all, where else can you go and see a show called "The Axis of Awesome" with bands like The Doo W.O.P.s (yes, that's an ethnic acronym slur for Italians), Calculator and the Oral Presentation, and of course, Heino and the SauerKrauts.

Highlights from the evening would have to be "No Gino, No Cry", "Crazy Afro Bush", the beat-boxing skillz of Calculator (the only man I have ever seen who can make a song by having half the audience shout "cocksuck", the other half shout "dicksmack", and his band shout "hey hey"), and Heino in all his glory.

Oh, did I mention that Heino and the SauerKrauts, beside being hysterical, is made up of members of Sloan and the Barenaked Ladies?

More Daleks

I'm quite aware that a lot of you love me, and feel bad for missing my going-away party. As such, here is your opportunity to buy my affection, love and approval:

1) An elusive Imperial Dalek, for which I've been looking some time now. It's going for the low, low price of $121.42 (at the moment) before shipping! You know you want to.

2) This Red Dalek would suffice as well. It's only $63 CAD before shipping. C'mon.

Ok. I have problem. We know that. Shut up.

Oh don't even try and fuck with the Monkey. Because he will find you, chase you, and take your bitch ass down.

Sam's putting in some amazing hours editing, and I have to give mad props to Matt for coming up with a not-so-rough soundtrack in merely two days. Watch for the final cut...

Could it be? Could the new Spiderman trailer actually be good? Crappy CG aside, that is.

Made it.

It's been insanity for the past couple of days. I moved Hannah into her new place, which gave me the opportunity to drive a nice chunk of Toronto. Movers came the next day at 7:30 am. My best friend Mike caught the bus down from Kingston to visit and hang out (and coincidentally celebrate his birthday on the 1st). He left yesterday afternoon.

Am currently living in a sea of boxes.

Leaving for Ottawa tomorrow morning to visit my sister and some family friends who are there on vacation from Australia. We're planning a day trip to Montreal, and then back to Ottawa for a bit of the National Gallery. Not a long trip though as I'm shooting a fashion designer's collection this Thursday at the Ryerson fashion show, and I've got to start looking for work as soon as possible. Given that I'm going to be in Ottawa for a good chunk of this week, it looks as though I'll be starting on Monday, April 12th.

Here goes.

More from the Monkey soon, including pics from my brand new Canon Powershot G5 digital.
