I'm on a real Andrew "Monkey" Duncan kick these days, but geeze louise, who isn't?! Let's call a spade a spade, come right down to brass tacks and face the music; the dirty little dancer is IT! He's the dirty little kid with the dirty little plan. Is there anything he can't do? I ask you again, is there anything he can't do? He's a master of disguise, a dancer, a director, an actor, a voice-actor, an editor, a writer, a laziast, and a bunion of warmth!

Since I posted the STONED trailer earlier, I thought I should at least post the first film in Andrew's trilogy so that when the actual short film Stoned is posted, you can see how the genius that is Andrew is progressing as a radiant film maker.

Hungover, the first in the trilogy, is considered a "classic." It is an autobiographical re-enactment of just one of Andrew's many hungover days. The phone call messages you will here are all real messages left by various people during one sweet hungover day. Monkey kept the recordings and used them for this film. As a sidenote, Hungover was made just days after Andrew earned his infamous nickname "Monkey." Little did we know the nickname would stick forever.

During the making of this film, Greg Richardson came to the shoot to help out. This help consisted of drinking all of the beer and passing out. "Snake," the cameraman/DOP literally had to spread the tripod over Greg's lifeless body on some set-ups. We put some clammy cereal or something around Greg's mouth and woke him up saying he puked. Greg, thinking that he did puke, got up, swore at us and left. Ahhh, good times, good times. I made the movie poster (seen above) and I'm the guy yelling "You are a little monkey! MONKEY!" and "arrnnnggg...I'm Andrew. I'm too hungover to answer the phone..." I am also the bandana-clad dork carrying a case of beer into the apt. at the end of the film. I'd like to know what you think of my acting skillz and camera charisma.

I can't wait to see Stoned. Actually, I've had the privilege of seeing a near completed version of it and I gave Andrew some really amazing notes which he will be taking into account. When Stoned is finished, Andrew will have another 10-or-so-years to complete his trilogy, with the filming of Jonesing: The Scag-mongering of Andy D.

Halarious. Thank you very much. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. You're the Best. Also, the final shot was done with water, because we were out of beer.
