When I think of Santa, my mind is flooded with happiness.  The feeling of security and warmth is tangible.    I can almost taste the candy canes and gum drops.  I can smell hot chocolate and cookies.  I can feel the tickle of of his beard and the whispering of elves.  That’s what Santa means to me.  Today, I learned this not the case for most children.  The truth is…Santa…is TERRIFYING!

I had to turn down the brightness on my computer screen. It is making my head feel fuzzy. I would like to take a long break from technology. No computer, no phone, nothing! Maybe then the little monsters crawling around inside my skull would go back to sleep. It would be nice to do anything that does not require a screen but, alas, I cannot completely sign off…yet…

We have been extra zombie like here at Monkey House lately. We are in the final stages of getting a new site up, completing new designs, and not to mention it is the holiday season! HEAD…MIGHT….EXPLODE.

I hope all of you out there in cyberworld are feeling good and enjoy our newest poster…Image

I don’t know about you, but I just can’t get enough and we here at Le Monkey House couldn’t be more stoked that Netflix took the show under it’s wing and brought us more of the unbelievably dysfunctional Bluth family.

That being said, we would also like to take this time to thank Netflix for having better shows than most cable channels.  (House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Lilyhammer…)  I mean, consider the game “upped.”  I can only hope that cable takes the hint and gets a little more selective about what they put on air.  I’m also certain that some shows could only make it to television by accident.

Let me explain:  So maybe when someone sent in a reel of their overweight child in a beauty pageant saying “hilarious” things and being sassy, an intern (whom should be fired) mixed the tape up with the one sent in about the 12-year old that got accepted to Harvard.  By the time any one noticed the mishap, it was too late…

I’m fairly certain I don’t need to argue the fact that reality television needs to die a swift and painful death.  If I hear one more “desperate housewife” (or husband for that matter) yukking it up in the line at Safeway about how “That Chloe Kardashian is a real firecracker” I’m going to throw myself them into oncoming traffic.

I know that sounds drastic, but it would be a much less painful way to go than to sit around and wait for all of our children to turn into Honey Boo Boo and their parents aspiring to be on the Real Housewives to show the world “how they do it in the _________ house.”

Stop it.

That, kids, is what is referred to as a “tangent.”

Some Advice for Miley…

Uncategorized

After all the buzz surrounding Miley Cyrus at the VMAs (which I missed) I obviously had to YouTube her performance.

WOWZA.

That was rough.

I thought seriously about dedicating today’s blog as a letter of advice to the poor girl. Then realized…

A)  That would the kind of post a creepy fan would write

B)  Miley will never see it, which is so sad because I have such good advice

C) There is not enough time in the day to compose a list of advice for that child

D) I don’t care.

I’m going to assume our readers out there are the sane ones who understand what I’m talking about for the most part. So, I don’t feel the need to rehash all the severe, SEVERE mistakes that young Miley made. I just want to give this to Miley and her team, who are the people who should really be blamed. You can’t tell me no one saw that girl’s hair, outfits, makeup, and “dance” before they put her on television. We can all have a laugh together and move on. I don’t want to add anymore fuel to this fire than it is already getting.

Sometimes less is more Miley ( and I don’t mean clothing)…

Customer Appreciation!

August, LeMonkey House

We absolutely adore when customers let us know how happy they are with our products.  That being said, we become giddy with joy when a customer sends us photos of our work in their new environment.  Recently, we did a custom 3′ x 4′ poster for a lovely fella’ down in Texas using our city designs for both Houston and Seattle.  He was so thrilled with it that he set us a little photo collage of the framed poster in his sleeping quarters along with a nice little note — “Love the print! I took a few pictures of it up. The pics don’t do it justice but feel free to use it! I love my bedroom even more now!”
