One Year

It's March 23, 2010, and we here at the Monkey are celebrating the first anniversary of being able to say "We here at the Monkey." I don't know if you're getting anything out of all this blogging business, but I sure am: a chance to re-watch old favorites like Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, discover new favorites like Anita Page, Douglas Fairbanks and René Clair, and hear from movie fans, both the living and the dead, from all over the world.

Katie-Bar-The-Door and I are keeping the celebration pretty low key, just the usual collection of jugglers, bikini dancers and session musicians in gorilla suits. We might even squeeze in time for a movie or two.

If you're in the neighborhood, stop on by. We'd love to see you!

Thanks, Thingy. You're the tops, you're the Mona Lisa.

No clowns, I hope. (((shiver))))

I did review a movie with clowns in it once, Lon Chaney's Laugh, Clown, Laugh. He was a crying-on-the-outside, crazy-on-the-inside kind of clown. Classic stuff.

Hey hey hey! Happy Anniversary -- & may you & all of us Monkey fans have many more!

Mythical Monkey said...

Thanks, Who!

I'm hoping the next year will see me move a little faster on these essays -- if I move any slower, I'll be going backwards. But it sure is fun.
