Alleged Alter-Egos

There’s a conspiracy theory about that Blind Monkey maintains a number of fraudulent alter-egos. This is slander. The following are respected co-contributors.

Ruby Coen

A poet that dispenses with the outdated notion that poetry has to be good. Her simple drawing, simpler prose, and borderline nonexistent message allows her poems to be felt instead of thought. Thinking is hard, and hard things feel bad.

Amadeus Vult

A black white nationalist fighting a three-front war against democracy, the enlightenment, and colors darker than sepia.

Prof. Roland Mentat

A leading expert on all things that may have happened at any point.

  1. I’m a freshman at Princeton. Just discovered this. It’s awesome. But where are people like this at Princeton? It’s like I’m in some kind of apocalypse movie, where you never totally see the other bands of survivors but you know they’re out there from signs they leave along the route. Except instead of survivors, I’m looking for video game fans/comic book geeks. I’m fucking Will Smith right now. Here’s my first radio broadcast.

  2. If “The Sellout” was worthy of the Man Booker Prize, “Everything Abridged” is worthy of a Nobel. It would have my vote, anyway. Hilarious start to finish, in the jaded, snarky way that it had to be in these times. One question: how can somebody born in the Bronx consider himself “Jamaican-American?” Or do I have bad information? Just curious.
