That’s my rap name.

Okay.  Not really.  BUT my rap video did just come out.

You’re saying “WHAT?!”

I know.  It’s a little “off brand,” as they say.

Here’s the story:  I wrote this rap to be performed live as one of thirty short plays in Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind which is an “ever-changing attempt to perform 30 plays in 60 minutes.”  That was back in 2007.  This particular plastic monkey had become a motif/recurring character in a number of Neo plays and this was my contribution to the clapping-monkey-play genre.  The play was pretty popular amongst the Neos, we did it at Best of, brought it to gigs from time to time, etc.  In 2011 we shot the footage for the video and our awesome director, Chris Stocksmith, who was filming it gratis for us, promptly got very busy with work and the video never got made.  About two years ago the footage was recovered and only just recently was it finally edited together by the delightful and talented (fellow retired-Neo) Connor Kalista.

So here I am, along with Erica Livingston and Rob Neill, looking younger and somewhat more well-rested than I tend to nowadays.  Enjoy!
