It is my great honor to award the first Green Monkey Master Badge to Chris! This is his third time participating in GMMP, which now makes him a Green Monkey Master.

Apart from the glory, Green Monkey Masters have the right to helm a future Green Monkey Music Project, deciding the theme of the mix, number of participants, etc.

Congratulations, Chris!

Nicely done, once again! That's a heck of a list, which should almost tide me over till Hallowe'en.
And congratulations to Chris on his great honour.

Some Guy said...

Thank you Splotchy & Barbara! I think this is one of the best blog-based projects out there. I accept the honor with gratitude and humility. I'll get to work thinking of another theme.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I have justified my selections. My sanity remains above dispute.

BeckEye said...

My thoughts have been thunk, and they're up on my blog.

Congrats, Chris...I guess you're a Silverback now?

Slave to the dogs said...

Thanks for doing this, guys. Great fun. Lulu nabbed my fave with Dead Man's Party.

Dale said...

I done tried to explain what I done. I echo Chris' comment, I love this project and hope I didn't smell it up too much. Congrats Chris and thanks Splotchy.

katrocket said...

What? No "Thriller"?

Are you mad? Or just too cool for Michael Jackson?

fun mix - well played!

Splotchy said...

I am surprised Thriller didn't make the cut.

I think it's a fantastic Halloween song.

Allen Lulu said...

AAAAAHHHHHH! How can there be a Hallowe'en mix and no one included the greatest snarky Halloween song of all time???? Halloween by Dead Kennedys.
Splotch, I will send it to you if you want. It simply can't be left out!

The Idea Of Progress said...

I have written my commentary as well. I hope it is found to be informative.

Tenacious S said...

I am so bummed that I didn't get to participate in this one. I live for Halloween and at one point in my life did actually believe that everyday was Halloween. Please sign me up for a future installment of GMMP. I live for this stuff.

Splotchy said...

allen l., I'll upload it tonight 'cause you asked so nicely.

ten s, sorry you missed out. It was truly a dead man's party. If you want to be part of the next mix, I'll pencil you in.

lulu said...

At least two of my songs were direct tributes to tenS though, so she's here in spirit.
