Who We're Following

Oh, god…where did you hear about this? Are people talking about it on Facebook?

Yes that’s exactly it. Peter Tork’s Facebook page posted a link all about it. And it looks as though the woman in charge of the purple flower gang is the genius behind it.

…Of course she is. And the sad thing is that if you look at the crowd-funding page that’s been created for this, every single one of the “incentives” for donating money are things that can only happen if the B+B/museum actually get built. Which defeats the entire purpose of an incentive, because it’s supposed to be something that people can actually get.

But yes…the idea of turning Davy’s home into a bed and breakfast is exactly the sort of garish nightmare that we envisioned could happen under the right (wrong) circumstances. If this happens, people will probably try to steal Davy-related mementos from the home or who knows what. Of course, this is all contingent on the town of Beavertown actually approving the construction of the B+B and allowing these people to obtain the proper permits in the first place.

This is not to say that certain people’s hearts aren’t in the right place, but given the logistics and the slightly morbid nature of the whole project, It seems like it would be better to just let Davy rest in peace…

Imagine that you are in the room at the Beverly Hills Hotel when Don Kirshner hands the Monkees their gold records and royalty checks and you can hear every word of the heated conversation that follows and see the anger flashing in their eyes and hear the impassioned frustration in their voices and feel the tension thick in the air and then suddenly everything goes completely black

because you are a tiny piece of plasterboard in the wall

and you’ve now been fisted by Michael Nesmith.

//so one time, apparently, Peter’s voice from Zilch was remixed in the 90s into this piece of modern art which I wouldn’t be laughing so hard at if it weren’t for the image of Peter Tork in 90s clothes breaking it down as a DJ

I feel the need to clarify/provide some context. Del the Funky Homosapien is actually a very well-respected hip hop musician and Mistadobalina was actually a big hit on college radio and in hip hop circles back in the 90s. Del is probably most famous for being a part of Gorillaz and appearing on the seminal hip hop album Deltron 3030 with Dan the Automator and Kid Koala. Del is also the cousin of Ice Cube. This is one of my favorite instances of hip hop sampling the Monkees tbh.

I once posted this song on Nez’s Facebook page and he thought it was awesome.
