Spyware Statement

Welcome to the Speed Monkey page. I wanted to dedicate a page to the Code Monkey remix contest.

Spiffworld has decided to make a music video of Speed Monkey. You can view the video embedded in our page here

Thanks so much to spiff world, I am so honored that anyone would want to do a code monkey remix video. I would encourage everyone to check out the rest of the Spiffworld Videos, they are all cool and really rock!

History: On November 20, 2006, Quick Stop ENTERTAINMENT announced a contest to remix Jonathan Coulton's hit song Code Monkey

Frustrated software designers, angry DJs, glue-addled loop kids: now is your chance to shine. This is the “Code Monkey” remix contest, in which you are all invited to use the source tracks from Jonathan Coulton’s internet hit Code Monkey (download the original HERE) to create something new and awesome. “Code Monkey,” as you well know, was song #29 in the astounding 52-song smorgasbord that was Thing a Week. As you are also no doubt aware, volumes three and four of this collection will be out on CD, right about the time this contest ends, just in time for Christmas. This is not a coincidence.

Being a little bored the day that I heard about the contest, I decided to give my best shot at changing this song. I downloaded the source files, pulled out my Ibanez Jem 7V, Ibanez RG-570, now hod rodded with EMG 81's and EMG 85's, plugged into my GT-6 and did a little tweaking, fired up cakewalk and went from there.

Code Monkey get up get coffee, Code Monkey go to job
Code Monkey have boring meeting, With boring manager Rob
Rob say Code Monkey very dilligent, But his output stink
His code not “functional” or “elegant”, What do Code Monkey think?
Code Monkey think maybe manager want to write *** ******* login page himself
Code Monkey not say it out loud, Code Monkey not crazy, just proud

Code Monkey like Fritos, Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man, With big warm fuzzy secret heart:
Code Monkey like you

Code Monkey have every reason, To get out this place
Code Monkey just keep on working, See your soft pretty face
Much rather wake up, eat a coffee cake, Take bath, take nap
This job “fulfilling in creative way”, Such a load of crap

Code Monkey think someday he have everything even pretty girl like you
Code Monkey just waiting for now
Code Monkey say someday, somehow

I decided that the only way to hear this song was fast and with lots of guitar solos!

I want to congratulate the other winners Kristen Shirts, Russell Pickett, and Cort Stratton. I want to thank Quick Stop Entertainment, the judges, Jonathan Coultan, my great aunt joe, and Radio Shack for making the TRS-80, the first computer that turned me into a code monkey.
