Michael's Pets. In a good way. Kind of.
Word to your moms: there is some awesome shiznit in the window of the Irish Cancer Society shop on Camden Street - the window is full of old Fleetwood Mac and Talking Heads LPs and musicy things - going on sale Saturday July 3rd. But continuing my policy of being mesmerised by weird Michael Jackson merchandise I saw an old school Bubbles the Chimp(ly Sailor) toy with a story and song cassette, available inside the shop. (All in its original packaging!)
It's 60 of your earth dollars so I sure as hell can't afford it but if any of you clowns purchase it I'd like to come round and listen to the sing along cassette with you and Bubbles. But not in a weird way. (definitely in a weird way...)
This wiki article on Michael and Bubbles is highly amusing; apparently Bubbles tried to top himself in 2003 but rest easy: Since the closure of Dunn's facility in 2004, Bubbles has been kept at the Center for Great Apes in Wauchula, Florida, where he is said to enjoy painting and listening to flute music.
