Since the winter of 2000, Tangmonkey has been spilling its furry guts onto the Web, and consequently, there's a whole lot of guts to be seen. This is TM's old-age home, residence of the lost, neglected, previously enjoyed and simply-out-of-date. Tread softly, lest you wake something up.
My Life As Nat is the account of one man's journey into the bowels of celebrity. Over several exciting months, the writer took on the role of Natalie Imbruglia - Australian pop starlet - corresponding with dozens of drooling, melancholy and vituperative fans.

"My music is part Frank Sinatra, part Bob Dylan, part Fiona Apple, and part Lord Ernest Rutherford."
Tangmonkey Records was for a time home to TANGMONKEY.COM's active imaginary record label. Learn about the artists we've signed - from the Saviour of Rock, Jay-C, to [critically acclaimed] Tooth or the General.

The Saurus is among Tangmonkey's oldest pages - it's a dictionary of wonderfully functional jargon, a lexicon of capital tangmonkey slang. No need to be monochrome, and very little that's piping hot, the Saurus is an excuse to remove the cast, and it'll lift your shakespeares at least a few notches.

BLAG was JP's excursion into random demagoguery, a hodgepodge pot-pourri of a column that ranged from fascinating interviews to photo snapshots and stange, simple comics. He now edits Food.
General Irrelativity was a brilliant series of pieces by Professor Particle, wherein he examined science from a none-too-serious perspective. From quarks to black holes, it's all here.
