We're back! Our holiday working at the monkey sanctuary was amazing, and turned out to be a fabulous inspiration for Sleep Talkin' Man. At least half of what Adam said in his sleep was directly related to what he was experiencing during his waking hours. I'll be sharing it with you guys over the next few days.
"That's no special monkey. No, that's Floppy. Floppy monkey. He's a bit crap, but we looooove him. Floppy, stop being crap. Come now."

STM is clearly talking about my very favorite monkey, Etsa. Poor little Etsa was deprived of sunlight, so his bones never grew. Note his funny little arms. Those, along with his very special waddle-hop method of locomotion, have earned him the nicknames "Pinguino" and "Floppy". Etsa is also a bit, umm, simple, and wants nothing more than to snuggle up and gnaw on your face all day. Here he is:
  

If anyone wants to see more pictures, I've put an album on the Facebook fan page.
"So I can't swim. And I can't climb like you. Okay? But I can make fire, and that's you fucked for a start. Fuck off back to the jungle. Jungle pussy! Wah wah wah."

This was immediately followed by Adam waking himself up in the usual way. The beauty of this reveal is the giggling you can hear in the background from our fellow volunteer and next-room neighbor, Jeremie, who had heard absolutely every word:

STM: wah wah wah... PUSSY!
KAREN: (choked giggle)
JEREMIE: (gaffaw)
KAREN: (burst of laughter)
JEREMIE: (prolonged cackle)
ADAM: Oh fuck.
EVERYONE: (general hysteria)
ADAM: Welcome to Karen's world.
JEREMIE: That was so cool.
KAREN: You were saying— You said— You said—
ADAM: I know I said it.
KAREN: Really loud, you yelled it.
ADAM: Oh, I didn't, did I? Oh, whenever we go away now, we should rent a sound-proof box. Because this is just too much. I can handle you giggling next to me, but to have someone giggling in the next room... It makes me a little bit self-conscious. Note to STM: Be a little bit more quiet, please, and considerate of others. Plus the fact that, you're making me embarrassed.
KAREN: You're thinking that STM's at all concerned with being considerate of others?
ADAM: If he doesn't want me to have some kind of nervous or social breakdown, he'd better be.

  1. Oh man, that ending had me on the floor! Thanks for the laugh, but I think I just woke up my whole household!

  2. Awww, Floppy's adorable! I want to hug him so desperately. I think I'll use my puppy as a surrogate Floppy when she wakes up tomorrow morning.

    And I had to control my laughter re: the big old outburst toward the end there and the reactions because... serious cheek-hurting laugh time right there.

  5. Welcome back! This was hilarious! I haven't laughed this much in a long time. The ending was superb. Can't even imagine how it is to listen to STM live. I imagine I would be borderline hysteric too.

  14. You're back! That's better! Welcome home.

    My eyes watered over the reveal.

    Gorgeous photo of Karen and the monkey.

    And yes, monkeys, I'm sorry but the human ability to build a fire does sort of fuck you for eternity. Humans are going to heat the planet up.

  21. You must meant 30d? Funny that my brother's canon always produces pictures in somewhat 'milder' colour, but yours came out amazing. I suppose you use manual setting?

  22. HIIII GUYS!!! Adam, You are hilarious! Would it be possible for you two to give me a photo of yourselves? i would draw you a portrait, if you'd like. I need something to draw and I think STM would be a good one. I Wouldn't charge of courseXD And I don't have a facebook, so if you'd kindly email it to me, at angelofthelordcastiel@live.com that would be great. I could even give you the original drawing once i finish if you want it.

    Thanks, Ashley
