                      Monkey Book 2 was a rather mind blowing lecture by artist/information engineer and all round great guy, Brad Paley... this is sort of a Mother's day card meets portrait of the artist as a success story, rant of a lunatic, art history lesson... or something?: you tell me. Music is a mash up of Animal Collective, some annoying kid kicking the subway seat with glorious train glee, and The one and only John Lennon and his fabulous Beatles, produced by Phil Spector if you can believe it Jackson Pollock. http://wbpaley.com/brad/biosImagesCvs.html http://monkeytownhq.com/monkeybook2.html and always: http://web.futureofthebook.org/itinplace/
