ANDER MONSON Caught LIVE in the middle of a very adult game
Ander Monson arrived at the UC Davis campus to audition for the role as main subject in a very adult game of pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey. It was a game where you stand in front of a bunch of scrutinizing adults, stand still long enough so that each thumb tack jabbed into your rear end will make you bleed.
He performed this audition while reading a story about a couple’s obsession with a stove, or was it a range? The couple was trapped in an Extreme Makeover-like hell, from which there seemed no escaping. But the reading of that story was accompanied by a system crash which rendered the whole thing moot.
However, there were additional “injury” minutes tacked on to the end, where Monson had to field a stormy brew of inquiries, which, lucky for him, led to a series of amazing brain flips which we, up in the booth, are still referring to as “Spontaneous Essay With No Particular Authorship No.1” and “ “Spontaneous Essay with No Particular Authorship No.2”.
