Ex-Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan and The Monkees' Michael Nesmith are among the high-profile stars that will be making guest appearances on the upcoming fourth season of the IFC sketch comedy show Portlandia.

let’s play “is that Stephen Stills or Peter Tork or just another hippy”
“I’ve noticed in my life that there are two kinds of pain in this life. One is the pain of growing up, and the other is the pain of refusing to grow up. And the pain of growing up changes, and there’s wonderful rewards attached to that—without drugs—and the pain of refusing to grow up is the same pain over and over and over again, and it never changes and there’s no rewards. But it seems easier to live without living, ‘cos life is tough. It’s a hassle to live.
Life is a pain, sometimes, and Lennon embraced the pain of his living. He struggles with issues like feminism and struggles with his own sexism and struggled with his own political understanding and strove to learn his own humanity. And he worked like hell, he worked hard and he gave it all he had and that’s awful rare. So that’s what made him special. Y’know, when Elvis died, well, Elvis dies, y’know, it’s too bad, it’s the death of a legend. But when Lennon died, a warrior went down.”
- Peter Tork, on the death of John Lennon
A tip of the hat to you, Mr. Lennon. You are missed more than you know, and will always be loved.

Hi there! Well thank you so much for the kind words. We appreciate it! :D In regard to your question, we’ve actually been asked that before, on several occasions. Remember that you can always check our #monkeesexual post tag or our Monkeesexual Compilation Posts to see which questions we’ve been asked previously. However, we will go ahead and repost our answers here for you now:
Davy: Mostly monosyllabic. Lots of grunting, maybe some panting. We don’t see Davy being particularly loud, but not totally silent, either. We can, however, possibly see him letting out a “Yippee!” like in Too Many Girls (Fern & Davy)…or, well, since that one anecdote that we posted…”Here we cum…”
Micky: Nonstop jabbering interspersed with primitive grunting. We think Micky literally would not be able to shut up, and would broadcast an ongoing stream of dirty talk. Though if his partner wanted him to be quiet, he might actually oblige her request and not say a word the entire time. His groans, however, would most likely escalate in frequency and volume the closer he got to climax, and then he’d get loud as all hell.
Peter: Peter would be the moaniest of the bunch, by far. We feel his noises would be all over the map, however, too…loud groans followed by dirty little whispers, moans rising into guttural screams, and everything in between. So he definitely wouldn’t stick to any one noise all the time—you’d just get a big ol’ grab bag o’ nookie noises.
Mike: We think Mike would be the quietest Monkee in bed—quiet to the point of wondering whether he’s actually enjoying himself. But if spurred on properly, we can see Mike making a few grunting noises of varying levels of enthusiasm. When Mike has an orgasm, of course, there is the possibility that he might revert to one of his Texan-isms, such as a half-choked “Holymotheragod!” or somesuch.
