Two Years Before The Mast Blog

Yes, it was two years ago today that we here at the Monkey posted for the first time. What a wild trip it has been—we started with The General in 1927, crawled forward to 1933 and then allowed the tide of history to sweep us back into the first decade of film. But I promise we'll start moving forward again. One day. Maybe when the economy recovers ...

In any event, we here at the Monkey plan to party 'til dawn. Join us.

Ooby dooby dooby, I'm gone, man.

Actually, I'm gonna stick around. If I have to wait for Cary, it will be well worth the wait.

P.S. You're looking a little rough in the photo. Pace yourself with the partying, mm. : )

Oooby doo! I wanna be like you-oo-oo! I love The Jungle Book, this makes me so absolutely nostalgic :-)

Wow, two years and I just found you!

Ironically, I just found your blog, too -- as is often the case through KC's Classic Movies site. And before I could log in and add you to my blogroll, you beat me to the punch.

For those of you reading the comments, you can find Acidemic by clicking here.

Highly recommended.

I sure hope I live long enough to write about Cary -- I already have notes for The Awful Truth, Bringing Up Baby, Holiday, The Philadelphia Story and His Girl Friday, and there';ll be many more after that, as well.

Must take better care of myself ...

I'm with you Lady San Pedro -- this is one of my favorite Disney movies. In fact, maybe Katie-Bar-The-Door and I ought to take the DVD out of the cabinet and watch it again tonight ...

Congratulations, M.M.!! Many good movie wishes going forward. :)

Now if only the Monkey could sing and dance like King Louie.

Happy birthday and "life long and prosper" to you and to the blog!

Time flies when you're having fun.

Actually, it flies whether you're having fun or not, so by all means, choose fun.

You'd think it would be enough that I look like King Louie. Sheesh, there's no pleasing some people ...

Well I'll be a monkey's uncle. Two years. Time sure flies. Best wishes and many more, Tom
