Video Killed the Radio Star

Just sent a couple of CDs to our fabulous videographers, Today's the Day Weddings, with possible songs for our wedding video soundtrack. (Mind you, I've been the reason for the extreme delay, not them. Work has been keeping me beyond busy. Poop.) If you're in the Southern California area, check out Mike and Joe at Today's the Day Weddings and feel free to let them know that The Monkey sent you. Frighteningly, they'll actually know who that is. Hee!
