Monster Roundup

kids, welcome to the Monster roundup. In this Column we will try to bring you the weekly monster happenings going on around the web.

Around the web.

Gabe has a fan page started by DS3M, I swear there was a link to an appearance of him and Gabe Liedman on VH1, but I guess I must have dreamt it. In other Gabe news, Babble, an online magazine for parents picked up on Gabe's GOOP editorials.

If you live in NY, you might want to head over to Brooklyn and check out these honorary monsters every Wednesday. If you live in the San  Francisco area , Joe Mande is bringing his-self over to a town near you, This time he's bringing Joe DeRosa with him.

For those monsters who miss Lindsay be sure to check out her Tumblr, she will also be writing a new column soon. We'll keep you updated.

Steve Winwood is the foremost art critic that I know, check out his writings on The Sunbreak.

Jake Fogelnest hosts a chat every Friday at 6PM ct. Internet commentator discretion is advised.

MOBFD Happenings

The chat is open at all times, but it is more likely full on Friday afternoons, Tuesdays (9pm ct)  & Sundays. sometimes it gets full at weird unpredictable times.  The monsters are very welcoming, don't be afraid to say hi.  During the daytime monsters are most likely present but not necessarily chatting.

The monster marketplace is empty due to the fact that I'm an idiot and I lost all the links, if you have an Ebay, Etsy or real store let me know and I'll add it. Sorry I did not get to it again this week, but next week there will be some content there, I pinky swear.

If you have no idea what's going on be sure to check out Werttrew's Inside joke list.

MOBFD is doing an European & Oceanic monster list. Let me know if you'd like to be added.

Also don't forget to check the Monsters' Ball stats.

General Community stuff.

We started a Kiva team! Like I said before, you don't have to give right now to join, you decide when and who to give to. 

If you are a monster and have stuff going on outside of Videogum send me an email & I'll try to post a link to it. If you have a personal Blog send a link to Werttrew or me and we'll happily ad you to the Blog/tumblr list.

Did you know that Roller Derby is the official sport of the monsters? I know of monsters in  3 different countries that participate in it. That's way more prominent that DS3M's Quiddich tournaments.
UPDATE I will post a reminder of this next week, just wated to give CT monsters a heads up. From Brian the Astronaut:

"Next Thursday, Feb 3 at 9pm, my string quartet rock band, the Tet Offensive, will be playing at Cafe Nine (250 State Street in New Haven).  If there are any CT monsters out there.There's a $5 cover, but drinks are cheap.  

Our Facebook is here:"
