Damn. that explains everything.

For years I have been outside of everyone else's monkeysphere and didn't realise what a sad ape I was.


Please, send bananas and monkey-friends. I prefer Bubbles.

Wow... that certainly does seem about right with what I've seen. Wow. Heh... that means my personal monkeysphere is smaller than my friends list. Which explains a lot, really. ;)

And then there is the thing with celebrities. we add some hollywood name (or an idol of any variety) to our sense of community.. where we think we know them.. and all they do is occupy the space of someone we could actually possibly KNOW.. befriend and share community with. The false sense of community like globalization and mcdonaldization of the world means us monkeys end up with an ever small circle of infulence where we can actually have support from another hairless ape.

Yet another reason I don't watch TV. Though I have to admit a certain interest in meeting 2 or 3 celebreties. But, I can't pretend I know them until I've actually met them.

All female of course. :-)

  • Madonna - I think she'd be really interesting to know.
  • Angelina Jolie - I loved her in "Hackers" and think she would also be interesting to know.
  • Kate Winslet - She chooses such fascinating roles. If you look at her career, she's generally chosen her roles carefully.
  • Tori Amos - I suspect she and I would fight, and then she wouldn't like me anymore, since she seems like someone who takes her convictions so much to heart that she couldn't have a friend who didn't share them. But, it would be interesting to find out, and meet such a talented, passionate person.
