Monkey Power Trio to record tomorrow in Oregon wilderness

As best as we can figure, it’ll be our 17th year/day as a band. Wish us luck… Here we are, about to eat lunch, after hiking up to Tamanawas Falls. Right now, we’re setting up instruments and getting ready.

    My favorite is the one that’s always drinking A1.

    You got some good lookin’ bandmates, Mark!

    If those are your pot smoking friends, then you do look like a fucking douche next to them.

    Maybe being friends with a couple of juggalos would do wonders for you image.

    It’s good that Mark doesn’t smoke pot. It apparently induces one to rip his own balls off.

    We are looking for a Juggalo to join us, Gary, if you’re up for it. We’ve also got an RFP out for a credentialed Muslim extremist and a member of the DAR. If you’ve got friends that fit any of those descriptions, have them send me a video of themselves, talking about why they want to be in the band. We would also like to have time Thomas Edison’s last breath be in the band, but we realize that may be a little more difficult, given that it’s locked up at Greenfield Village.

    I don’t intend to rip my balls off until our 20th session.

    I don’t want to interfere with your creative process, but here’s something that might help.!

    There will be no death panel for my ballz.

    Everyone else was drinking Guinness. I feel bad that I’m the only one drinking an American beer. I didn’t mean to make everyone else in the band look like an America-hating mother f’er.
