Sunday 160 - A Cymbal of Excellence

Percussion was his love and strength.
His dream was to entertain in public all the time.
He practiced for hours and hours
until he made his unforgettable debut.

I always loved those lil monkeys, until I seen a scary movie with one and now that's all I can think about when I see them! He's still cute though :) Mine's up

gospelwriter said...

Cool! Um, not sure I'd want that toy in my house, however. :)

My 160 is here.

Stranger said...

Stephen King and Toy Story 3 have succeeded in making me wary around those musical monkeys, but I still think they are cool.

I played this week - my own undead nod to your post from Friday. Hope you like it.

It's the simple things that become classics.

Mine is here

I thing I'd never come up with something, but I managed. Amazing how hard 160 characters can be to come up with.

Katherine said...

The clanging monkey is cute in a creepy sort of way. Those poppy eyes are a little alarming!
Cool 160!

Tina said...

Reminds me of Phantom. Nicely done 160!

kavisionz said...

heheh... cute! But he looks kinda tired in there... :)
But I would say, this was a cool tribute to a simple, yet funny little classic!

Here is my 160 for this week...

Matty said...

LOL I haven't seen one of those in many years.

kkrige said...

I too had my mind drift along horror flicks. Buggy eyed thing. I have a little 160 Here

MM

You are a clever wit ---now who can resist such a nostalgic whimsical toy.

Joanny

thanks for the lovely comment -- work absorbed all my time this past week, it was good to see a small break in our clouds a balmy breeze this morning and my obsession with Mt hood.
