Who We're Following

the most expensive item on Mike’s website is “A beautiful finch drawn by Nez himself using an iPad.”

$250

is Michael Nesmith even real

Ha. He was selling these at the Monkees convention earlier this year, too. They were all signed and individually numbered, so like a “limited edition” thing. Sadly, people will and did buy them, hence why he charges that much for it.

I think we should dedicate this gif to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Truefacts: Almost all Monkees fanboys needs to sit down and take a long look at their lives and choices before even considering judging female fans for theirs.

The Monkees became popular due to teenage girls and were considered a joke and a fake band until a few years ago when finally men at music magazines decided to give them a second-look and it makes me mad that something isn’t considered legitimate or real or worth caring about until men say it’s acceptable.

ALL OF THIS. Not to mention that this same issue is still reflected in how a lot of male Monkees fans perceive and interact with female fans, many of whom were once those same teenage girls, but are now grown women. A “serious” fan is often categorized as someone who is a collector, who owns every different version of a certain album or single or rarity, and who is also encyclopedic in the most obscure Monkees trivia tidbits. Time and again, it seems like anyone who does not fit these criteria is dismissed by these “serious” fans…but sadly, if a person fits that criteria and happens to be a woman, she’s frequently still dismissed because of the (unfounded) assumption that a female fan is going to care about the musician being “hot” first and foremost (or only that). So, so ridiculous.

Guys. it would be great if you could give me some feedback on this report I’m doing. The information in it is all true, but I mainly wrote it down so I could have reminders of what I’m talking about. (I won’t actually be reading it from the projector screen, I’m using the info as flashcards instead of actual flashcards because I plan on bringing vinyls instead.)

Very cool visually. Not sure if I would include the info about Peter’s orgies depending on how old you are haha. Also, I disagree with the comparison of Micky/John Lennon and Nez/George Harrison, since Nez was definitely not quiet and was the primary force in their musical independence from Kirshner. That’s all I have for advice:)

Echoing and agreeing with PJ’s comments above, but also adding that you mentioned all of the Monkees’ real names except for Mike’s. Not sure if that was intentional, but if you wanted to include it, it’s Robert Michael Nesmith. Also, the newspaper ad actually went out in 1965, not 1966, and Mike was the only one who answered it (Davy already had a contract, Micky had a private audition, and Peter was recommended by his good buddy and fellow auditioner Stephen Stills). As to what PJ said about mentioning Peter’s orgies, the same goes for including the info about them smoking lots of marijuana in the second season (may not be appropriate for a school presentation). Other than that, it all looks great!

70s selfie by iconic rock photographer Henry Diltz. If you’re blogging classic rock from California from the mid-60s on (Doors, CSNY, Mamas & Papas, the Airplane, the Dead, The Monkees, Joni Mitchell, plus anyone passing through LA) you’ve definitely posted Henry Diltz. (I’ve tagged the ones I’ve posted to give you some idea.) Turns out he was quite the looker himself back in the day!
