Does anyone else ever picture what the hottest celebrities of today will look like in the FUTURE? dun. dun. dun.

future-city

This thought has been creeping into my head over and over ever since Jacqueline Bisset made everyone feel awkward at the Golden Globes.

Sure, her acting totally crazy doesn’t help, but getting older isn’t easy on everyone. Some of the celebs we all used to swoon over have really lost that “it” factor. The people who used to be on the poster you proudly hung on your wall are the same people who would make you pull your kids a bit closer if they passed you on the street.

I mean I can hardly control myself when I imagine Justin Beiber 30-40 years from now. Well, at the rate he is going it might only be about 5-10 years before he starts to look like this…

Now, this is not intended to make fun of old people, okay…maybe just old celebrities. It may be twisted, but I think I get a small amount of satisfaction when I think of how fleeting all that superficial mumbo jumbo is. Go on, just picture Miley Cyrus wearing that same nude bikini but maybe this time when she sticks her tongue out, her dentures go with it.

Don’t get me wrong getting older is a bitch. I don’t enjoy seeing my ass slowly take a downward turn, but the great thing is, it happens to everyone. Maybe it wouldn’t seem so painful if we all stopped putting so much stock into “beauty”.

There are so many things that get better with age. Yet, as a society we still cling to the one thing that doesn’t. Maybe someday we will learn, but for now we can still make fun of celebrities because let’s be real, they want the attention either way.

So here’s to you crazy old celebrities!

I don’t know about you but I appreciate a good commercial.

Sure, most of the time they just make us angry or we ignore them all together. (unless it’s the Super Bowl)  But you can’t deny when you get sucked into a commercial and find yourself actually interested, amazed or even sad you have to give some love to the marketing teams. I will tell you that women tend to be a bit more observant in this matter. Or, maybe we are just more likely to have an emotional reaction to things, at least once a month. I’m just minding my business, eating my third chocolate bar, when WHAM..

and then I’m all…

Subaru people are either genius or in cahoots with Puffs and Kleenex.

That may not be true for all you ladies out there but I know I’m a sucker. For instance, I keep telling myself my next car will be a Subaru just because I love their commercials. I know nothing about Subarus, or cars for that matter. All I know is I have a hard time keeping it together for any Subaru commercial and I would seriously consider them now!

Here are a few more companies I would be happy to ignorantly support just because I love their commercials…

Sold.

Sold.

Sold.

Sold.

There are so many great advertisements out there. It makes you wonder why things like this are still happening….

or you could take things to the next level like this Thai commercial…

Thanks for ruining my week Thai Insurance.

I can understand why someone with a small budget would end up with something terrible. It’s just puzzling when even decent sized companies still end up with this…

Okay, now let’s dissect that video.

It seems like a well done commercial. Simple idea and straight to the point. So WHY are they getting so much wrong!

For starters,  I feel like that guy is hitting on me. Sure, he is a nice looking guy, but why is he just a tad older than he should be. Then, did they just tell him to wear a collared shirt and tuck it in, or was there actually a stylist behind this? Button up your shirt dude. Maybe, get a belt, actually maybe get a new outfit entirely. And is it just me or is his torso way out of proportion with the rest of his body? I feel like walking up to this guy and saying “Oh hey Brad (which I’m assuming is his name), I can’t believe you forgot to shave before your first acting gig in that Trivago commercial, how embarrassing”

All I’m saying is, there are companies who get it, companies who don’t have enough money to even try, and companies that have the money and should know better! We would all be grateful if those people put a little more thought into their advertisements!

Anyway…Let’s end this on a good note…

Laugh…

Be Inspired…

And Love…

What’s a Christmas Gram? I want one!

Christmas, Design Studio, forever young, getting old, graphic design, LeMonkey House, Posters, Uncategorized

I know we haven’t had Thanksgiving yet, but Christmas is fast approaching.

I wanted to get everyone in the holiday spirit with one of my personal favorite traditions, watching Elf…

Image

Is it silly and childish, yes, but isn’t that the best part?

Christmas changes as you get older.

You can’t stay up all night giggling with excitement.

You can’t be the one selfishly ripping open all your gifts.

You can’t eat endless amounts of sweets without suffering the consequences.
I am going to hold on to what I can.

I think Will Ferrell does an Oscar worthy job of reminding us that Christmas is full of magic, sugar, joy, snowflakes, m&ms, maple syrup, unicorns and spaghetti.

Although I am totally for letting your inner child out for the holidays, you are old now and have responsibilities. So, this is the perfect time, as an adult, to start thinking of gifts for others. We want to help you get that part over with as quickly and easily as possible. Check out our store to get a head start on that shopping at  LE MONKEY HOUSE SHOP

Also…Check out our new poster designs!!

P.S. Look how weird Zooey Deschanel looks as a blonde….

P.S.S You smell like beef and cheese, you don’t smell like Santa.

Forever Young.

Good day people of the internet.

It is an exciting day here in the Monkey House. (We usually cling to any reason to goof off or justify the special treats we give ourselves.) Today, however, we have a legitimate cause for celebration! It is our Founder, Chief, and Grand Poobah’s day of birth. Let me tell you, she is the man. (and by that I mean she is a hot piece of ass.)

As far as I’ve noticed, the older you get the more birthdays suck. You have…

less time – more responsibilities

less money- more bills

a harder time seeing and hearing – (well maybe just a harder time with all the senses)

wrinkles – and a general lack of elasticity on most body parts

things hurt – hips, feet, most joints, and depending on how many birthdays you’ve had maybe your skin… sorry, please be careful.

memory fades, food softens, you spend more time at the doctors…

the cruelest of all… the gifts get so boring. I knew I was getting older when I received new sheets for a birthday. (it has been downhill ever since)

NOT Today! We are keeping this happy birthday thing happy. While there are some downsides to aging, we strongly believe you can stay young forever. Even though our fearless leader, Raygan, is nowhere near old age, we can already tell she will be just like this lady… YES, this lady.

We encourage you to dance, sing, be goofy, laugh as often as possible, and never give into the oldness! We hope that today brings you new adventures and something to celebrate. After all, about 19 million people are having a birthday today. So we hope you all stay FOREVER YOUNG.
