Ape is not really back yet but I thought I would explain to the small handful of followers where Ape has been. Much has happened since my last post. I succumbed to a stupid flu for a couple of weeks immediately after running a PB at the City2Surf, ran a half marathon in picturesque Sydney post City2Surf flu, climbed another rung in the corporate ladder, and celebrated my little man-ape's 10th birthday. Life has been a little hectic, sniffly, and sans humorous blogging but things are starting to settle down again.
“Shut up with the lame excuses and make with the funny simian boy!” Geez, give a guy a break imaginary irate blog follower.
I will forgo my usual approach of producing a faux news article and instead just draw your attention to an article that made me chuckle the other day. It is of course simian themed but with a dash of Lloyd Webber absurdity.
It is essentially a musical of King Kong, finally most of you are saying to yourselves, but the creators comments make any attempt from Ape No. 1 to add any more humour redundant. The creator states.
“But I've always said to the producers that the show needs to able to be performed as if it was a high-school musical with no set, no special effects.”
Which of course explains why there will be a full size puppet King Kong in the production. I thoroughly recommend reading the full article as the article gets even more absurd after this.
I am sure it will be easy for people to ignore the massive gorilla and simply enjoy the experience that is a musical of a movie that has no right being a musical.
I know this should be start of a weekly blogger competition to see who can come up with the most inappropriate movie to turn into a musical but that is a level of work that Ape can not commit to. Anyway I will be posting again on the weekend and will also be trying to find moments in the next few days to catch up with the trillions of posts that I have missed reading from the blogs I follow.
