Evil Monkey, Christopher Priest, and the Arthur C. Clarke Awards

Evil Monkey: Did you see that Christopher Priest threw his feces all over the Arthur C. Clarke Award?!? Jeff: Yes. Don’t bother me. I’m working. Evil Monkey: No, no. You have to respond.

Evil Monkey and Territories

Jeff: What do you call someone who defends territory the size of a postage stamp? Evil Monkey: A mouse? No! A flea! Jeff: What about someone who attacks to acquire territory that size?

Evil Monkey and Terra Nova Cain

Evil Monkey: I think it’s so cool there’s a new TV series with dragons! Jeff: They. Are. Not. Dragons. Like I told you, they are dinosaurs.

There Will Be Blood, Evil Monkey, There Will be Blood

Evil Monkey: “There will be blood“, Jeff. There will be blood. Jeff: There will be blood, Evil Monkey. There will be blood. Evil Monkey: It might not be your blood. It might not be today. It might not be tomorrow. It might be yesterday. But there will be blood. Jeff: I’m pretty sure it will […]

A Sampling of Visual Birthday Wishes: I Wish to Be Feared

(Like this image by Todd Vandemark? For liking it, you owe it to me to buy this.) (Leah Thomas sent me this, after I questioned whether a bear hat she’d mentioned was plush or real.

Evil Monkey’s New Religion

Evil Monkey: I’m starting a new ideology. Jeff: Based on what tenets? Evil Monkey: Everyone is evil. Everyone is a monkey. Jeff: Even aarkvarks? Evil Monkey: Even aarkvarks. Jeff: Don’t do it, dude. Ideologies are toxic. Evil Monkey: No they’re not—they’re the life’s blood of social change. Jeff: Until they go rogue. Evil Monkey: You […]

Evil Monkey Revisits George R.R. Martin’s A Feast for Crows

Jeff: You’ve re-read A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 4)by George R.R. Martin, too, haven’t you? Evil Monkey: Yes. No way am I scaling the mountain that is A Dance with Dragons: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book Fivewithout reminding my brain of prior context. Jeff: What did ya […]

Evil Monkey Hates…And Hates…And Hates…

Evil Monkey: I hate you. Jeff: I don’t hate you. I love you. Evil Monkey: Hate me. Hate my stench. Hate my feces on the wall. Jeff: I hate the cat’s throw-up more. But I’m curious. What else do you hate? Evil Monkey: I hate the bitter inner lining of walnut shells. I hate the […]
