Monster Roundup

February 23rd, 2011

Outside Stuff
A lot of stuff went down since the last Monster Roundup
Murraynmitch turned us on to CBC Radio and their WMOAT discussionScottGum confirmed the date for the Videogum 3rd anniversary Celebration in New york. As you might know, someone started an official Gabe Delahaye site. There you can find links to his pre-gum blog and other stuff Gabe-related. If you've visited the site in the past you might know that Gabe wrote a novel & that you can download it for free

Gabe also has a Facebook fan-page started by DS3M. Speaking of Facebook, Grace6697 has started a very noble cause for the advancement of humanity and the preservation of mother earth, please join. Birdie Also has a fanpage. MOBFD facepage coming soonish.

If you live in NY, you might want to head over to Brooklyn and check out these honorary monsters every Wednesday. Also, Joe Mande is hosting a comedy showcase tonight, featuring John Mulaney, Wyatt Cenac, Noah Garfinkel at Caroline's.

For those monsters who miss Lindsay be sure to check out her Tumblr, also check her out on the twitter.
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. Jake Fogelnest hosts a chat every Friday at 6PM ct. Internet commentator discretion is advised.

One Last thing:
Motherfucking Huckabeast is a writer. He pens (Pens? keyboards? You'd think "writes" would have more synonyms) music reviews for Stereo Subversion. They are looking for editors at the moment, so if you are interested you might want to apply. He also writes for Footnote TV. I think most monsters would find it pretty interesting:
