Electric Monkey Pants began as a deranged experiment in HTML abuse and sputtering rage at the evil Bush Regime. It has since outgrown both, but you wouldn’t know it from this design and the world we live in today.
EMP was started by Tim O’Regan in 2003 to serve as an outlet for all things web-related. It soon morphed into a semi-popular political blog. Dozens of conspiracies were unraveled and those responsible were duly noted. However, that sort of thing can be exhausting and Mr. O’Regan’s spleen is fairly well vented these days. The intention is to move the blog back towards the light-hearted fun its name implies, if the world would only be so kind as to cooperate.
The blog name has been the subject of much speculation. Suffice it to say that you (hopefully) won’t be buying any electrical, light-up pantaloons for your monkey for sale on this blog, because there aren’t any. In fact, you might say the whole thing is a bit of a distraction, like so much of the modern world, blaring to you at 115 decibels and crisp 1080p brightness. Why not relax and ponder the inner meaning to the strange happenings on this world. Join us as we peel back a layer or three.
