Who We're Following

Second important observation about that picture we just reblogged: Micky is being fondled by two Monkees and appears to have absolutely no problem with that whatsoever.

Can we all observe where Peter’s hand is? Let’s all observe where Peter’s hand is…

ATTENTION MONKEES PEOPLE!

It’s Fandom Lenses here. We need to talk. The Boyce & Hart: The Guys Who Wrote ‘Em Documentary Indiegogo ends in *checks site* 60 hours. It’s picking up steam today but they still need a good bit of money.

I’ve been a Monkees fan from the age of 9. To a degree in the 80s but especially upon rediscovering them in college, I’ve been fascinated by the “hidden” faces of the Monkees-Boyce and Hart especially. I know I’m not alone. Like most fandoms we occasionally can get a little…high-strung. However, when something needs to happen, we settle down and get it done. Take the DJEMF—its success makes me really proud to be a Monkees fan. This campaign is another great opportunity to prove that we can accomplish stuff that matters. Having been lucky enough to see it, I can assure you that this film matters.

Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart were two of the most important creative forces in this manufactured whatever-it-was that brought us so much joy and brought us all together. Beyond the Monkees, they wrote some of the best-known pop tunes and TV theme songs of the 60s besides. THEY ARE PART OF THE REASON YOU COULD VOTE AT 18. Go watch the trailer and donate—even just $5. By donating or even reblogging this post, you can help teach a wider audience what we’ve known for ages.So…what are you waiting for?

I donated last week! I really, really want to see this documentary happen! Please, if you can, go contribute. I’m crossing all my fingers and toes that they meet their goal.

Donate, donate, donate, folks! Time is running out and the makers of this documentary need a bit more funding to finish it up. Give what you can—every little bit helps!

Imagine that the Monkees actually did go ahead and record “Sugar, Sugar,” and in the video for the song which is filmed in the Rainbow Room, Mike Nesmith is just standing stone-faced in the background and with every line Micky sings, Mike’s eye twitches…then his arm twitches…then his legs…and by the time the song ends every last piece of Mike’s soul has collapsed and when the dust fades all that’s left of him is a green wool hat and a pile of salty, Texas chili-flavored tears.

Putting this in a separate post because why not.

Picture it: California, 1986. You’re an eager yet inexperienced intern at the Pacific Arts Company, and you walk in and see your boss here, sitting and looking at you like this. Oh, the possibilities…

Thank you so much! :D

The best one I ever saw of this had captions like they were foreseeing the future. Does anyone here have that or did you make it? ‘Cos it was so excellent’ it’d be nice to put it up again for people who didn’t see it the first time. 

Yep, we have that right here. It was created by NP logo designer Zeftoon Namora:

Extremely rare pics of Peter Tork in 1969 playing with his post-Monkees band Release. His girlfriend Reine Stewart is the drummer.

These are from the Peter Tork Personal Fan Club and are for sale on ebay.
