i was more than gutted when i missed out on tickets to Monkey (journey to the west) in london. however i feel slightly better about missing out since i saw the details for the album.

if you haven't already heard me bleeting on about how much i like damon and jamie's work, let me just say i have probably collected more gorillaz artwork and music in my house than most healthy adults.

additionally the gorillaz team have been working with the bbc to adapt monkey's visuals and music for the upcoming bejing olympics. you can download your own desktop monkey. not dissimilar to our desktop prefect, except they opted to build it using adobe air. the results are stunning and even though i have interest in the games i couldn't help but install it.
