The Monkees on Entertainment Tonight (1984)

Something about seeing ’80s Peter and ’80s Nez in the same clip that inspires a great many middle-aged Torksmithy thoughts…

Well, this is a hell of a thing to wake up to… (Thanks, Nez!)

Reblogging to add that since Nez shared our post this morning, the NP FB has gotten over 20 new “likes”! Excuse us while we rub our hands evilly at the thought of so many Monkees-innocent minds to potentially corrupt…

I saw that! Woo!

"Woo!" indeed. Haha. Unfortunately, we’re now seeing people making posts on FB about "Oh, Nez reads Naked Persimmon!" and so forth. Which…no. Haha. He doesn’t even have our page "liked," and probably saw the photo yesterday because we tagged John Ware in it. But, people are going to believe what they want to believe, it seems…

We’re 5 hours away from the disaster which is the Monkees concert. For those of you kids who are not going, I don’t blame you - I wouldn’t go either. The whole concert’s a drag. You go down there and nothing happens, I mean you sit in your seat, everyone screams in your ear and uh, I don’t know. The Monkees aren’t worth a flip anyway, well I’ve always thought anyway. Can’t play, can’t play their own music I think that’s obvious. I mean they stand around and sort of look like they play. Now the television show- well the television show’s a drag, and everything. And um- ohh boy, happy go lucky Nesmith is here. No, I’m teasin’, kids!

This person is a troll who has written bizarre, negative comments on our stories/posts too, to the point where we’ve had to alter our Disqus settings which now allows us to moderate any comments we receive so we can filter hers out. Very strange behaviour!!

So sorry to hear this happened to you guys! That’s so ridiculous. A little while ago, she commented on another post of ours and said, “I’m sorry that I appeared to be a hater. I overreacted. Do you forgive me?” We just don’t even know what to think at this point…

Let’s all enjoy some clearly-not-having-a-problem-with-being-tied-up Peter, shall we?

Wow … that’s not a disturbed mindset at all, wanting to kill someone for something that’s none of their damn business WHATsoever.

Right?? That’s possibly the most unsettling aspect of the entire comment…how wildly out-of-proportion the response is to the thing this person is talking about. The sad part is that we’ve seen a lot of fans like this, who think being that "protective" of one of the guys is what makes them a better fan than other people (notably, the people who write slash fics in the first place). Sigh…
