Akimonkeys in Action: Tooling around

Anjun Ampulius is a big monkey, complete with a Mohawk AND a tail, but even for him, last night's Tool concert was no picnic: a heart warming, but deafening experience. Patriot Center is on my official s#*t list of concert halls to be avoided and possibly razed to the ground. Sound mixing is not brain surgery! The Akimonkey in attendance is still recovering, but enjoying his little Tool: here are some pictures of Anjun holding his brand new weapon: a Kipling monkey sized Tool wrench, procured at the event. I did get a nice, Ouroboros style Tool T-shirt for myself, but it is nowhere near as cute as this keychain... We want to congratule VRN on his excellent taste, and the fact that he sneaked out mid-set to get it for us!

Akimonkeys in Action: Hassimir @ Sackler & Freer

Today the big grey Kipling monkey called Hassimir went to Freer & Sackler Gallery, ostensibly to check out the new "The Tsars and the East" exhibition (no photos allowed, well then, screw you, Lukoil the Official Sponsor, no promo!) but of course, there were a few nice stopovers on the way to check out assorted South Asian and garden variety sculptures...
