Happy New Year: The Outlook For 2014

Good news. We here at the Monkey are again hosting part of the annual Favorite Classic Movie Actress Tournament—a.k.a. March Madness—this time the 1950s bracket. That means lots of pictures of Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Deborah Kerr and twenty-eight other classic contestants.

After that, I'm thinking it might be time for the Monkey and the Google to part company, maybe for Wordpress or some other platform. People complain about the NSA (without always much knowing what they're talking about, judging from comments on the internet), but Google is a serial invader of its customers' privacy to a degree that would make Big Brother blush—and for reasons a lot less noble than fighting terrorism. I have no doubt that if push came to shove, Google would sell my information to the Russian mob, and for what? To boost the price of their stock by an extra ten cents a share.

So probably come April or May, I'm going to start over elsewhere. What that new start will look like, I can't say at the moment. But I'll be writing it, so it's bound to be full of the usual jibber jabber.

In the meantime, we here at the Monkey wish you the happiest of happy new years!

I made the move to Wordpress just about the time my blog died a natural death. . . .

the zombie blog has plodded on since, of course . . . .
