It might just be a timing issue.

I note, however, that you're attaching the 'on_connect' and 'on_message' 
callbacks _after_ asking it to connect, which seems like a strange thing 
to do. If you want it to callback when it connects, it makes more sense 
to attach the callbacks _before_ asking it to connect.
