What’s the name of that thing again?

Finally got to see Hancock this afternoon — despite that it’s getting mixed reviews, I really liked it. Yeah, yeah….you have to leave reality at home, but I LOVED the complex character Will Smith portrays. I thought about magicalmonkey during the following scene — I’m sure my movie bud wondered why I laughed THAT hard. Ha!! Play it to see if you connect this dot to the other one.


A sweet, romantic video

You know, I try not to get lazy with my posts, but it does sometimes happen. You may think this is one of the lazy ones, too, BUT….nooooooo. This YouTube video is just so perfect. One of my favorite songs + one of my favorite classic TV shows = a magicalmonkey MUST!

According to the friend who showed it to me, I’m the last person on earth to have seen it.

Yo, Simon….click here

I realize that only a couple of you read magicalmonkey on a regular basis–so I’m probably not helping her out that much–but on the off chance that your name is Simon Cowell and you have stumbled upon this blog by googling something like “dimwitted pixie ass hair geocaching Barbie iPhone nipples,” I’d like to turn you on to Brandy Lindsey & the Punch.

I’d known Brandy for many years as a freelance graphic designer before I ever knew she was into music. Then I discovered that she was a singer/songwriter/musician/composer in addition to being a talented print pro. I checked out a performance one night at a local club, and have been a big fan ever since. Remember those really superathletic people you used to know in school? Those lucky people who, no matter what physical activity they attempted, they excelled? Well, Brandy is one of those lucky people in the world of creativity. Impressive.

Nowadays I don’t work with her in her freelance capacity, but she sings to me over my fun little Shuffle as I run. :)

Oh, and before she chastises me for not mentioning “The Punch,” let me say that they rock, too! Here’s their first video.
