about

NOTE--This is not to be confused with the much shorter Midnight Voicejail Episode 17 called 'Monkey Pizza' which inspired this longer playing program.

Monkey Pizza (The Midnight Voicejail Episode) can be found here:

nationalcynical.bandcamp.com/album/midnight-voicejail-episode-17-monkey-pizza

This is a collage program utilizing an extensive mix-up of hundreds of different elements all revolving around two subjects: Monkey(s) and Pizza. It is meant to be predominantly humorous in effect.

Equivalent of a double cd. Tracks 1-14 comprise the first disk, and the rest of the tracks comprise the second. This is the 2014 Mix as heard on The National Cynical Network radio program on February 9th, 2014.

This program, in all, represents work done over 3 years.

All obscenities have been bleeped but Track 23 (not streamable) may be NSFW due to politically incorrect language.

This program is meant to be listened to, and taken, as a whole work, artistic in nature. Subsequently, more derivative tracks are not available separately.

All derived and referenced material used herein is meticulously accredited and/or fragmented / transformed / re-contextualized, and/or remixed from its original form, and is used fairly as a cultural reference in the subtext, and artistic narrative, of this unique 'syntopical' arrangement.

Any proceeds from this work are considered donations to express appreciation for, and to help support, the expenses of the project this program is a part of, and the creative work behind it, and is not a prerequisite fee in exchange for content.

Track Name: The Monkeys are Asleep Today (Troggs Remix)
The monkeys are asleep today
I saw them down on fifth street
bumming cigarettes and staring
at the cracks there in the floor

The monkeys are asleep today
they're sending out their resumes
auditioning for plays we've seen
a thousand times before

The monkeys are asleep today
I see them laughing nervously
their bare-faced painted smiles
they just don't cut it anymore

The monkeys are asleep today
They're trying to walk upright
but the lives upon their backs
won't let them quite fit through the door

The monkeys are asleep today
they're getting laid in restroom stalls
their backs are up against the walls
with nothing in their hands

The monkeys are asleep today
they're crawling in the sidewalk cracks
they're much too tired for fighting back
they fill the shopping malls

The monkeys are asleep today
they're sitting in their cubicles
I saw them crossing Market Street
with briefcases in tow

The monkeys are asleep today
they're getting stuck in traffic jams
they haven't figured out quite yet
they've got nowhere to go.
