Greensboro, Thursday May 7th 2009. Over the course of the past several months Timothy “Twistypops” Mcbaak has been financing the endeavors of the monkeywhale denizens without question or desire for any return on his investment, but due to a “severe downturn in his investment portfolio,” Twisty has pulled his funding.
“It’s unfortunate, but all things come to an end” said Twisty as his personal assistant stood in line for the morning Venti Mocha Cappuccino. Since the inception of Monkeywhale Harvey Robinson (co-founder of monkeywhale.com) has interviewed and recorded over 70 guests in a rented apartment kitchen and have been featured on the front page of the Brooklyn-based blip.tv several times in the past couple of months.
“Sometimes I mistake the xlr cables for pasta,” Harvey joked. When asked what he’d be doing next he shrugged, “Oh, I don’t know … wash dishes somewhere or maybe look for a job at the Discovery Channel.”
There has been a call for Monkeywhale to put together a music festival in the fall to help finance the project further.
“Well, if there’s enough support for it I’d love to keep doing this. We’ll see. Losing our biggest backer is a real blow.”
The most recent video posted by Harvey featuring the Greensboro, NC band Irata has been the 3rd highest ranked video on blip.tv for the past few days. Express your support by leaving a comment on monkeywhale.com.
