Who We're Following

that time I watched the brady bunch movie and cried.

ANYONE WHO SAYS THEY DON’T SQUEAL WHEN THE JUDGES’ PANEL IS SHOWN IS LYING.

The caption that was originally on this photo was, “Davy is jealous of Mike’s watch.” And we’d have to agree that Davy is definitely jealous of Mike’s incredibly big, long…watch. Yes.

Hey now, wait a minute…

Folks, a word about posting “factual” information:

It’s no great secret that the Monkees, like their fellow rock star contemporaries, engaged in their share of illicit behavior—drugs, marital affairs, and so on. We here at NP have acknowledged this many times over and made numerous posts to that effect, as well as answered a whole lot of “Ask NP” questions about such things. 

However…it does both the Monkees and the fandom a disservice to make such posts—especially posts that make definitive statements about the Monkees’ private lives—without any research being done first. We’ve all seen it before: Someone makes a post saying “The Monkees did [x thing].” That post gets reblogged, then someone who knows that the Monkees actually did not do [x thing] sees it and reblogs it with correct information, but the wrong info has already gone out far and wide and before you know it, the truth is lost and tangled up in a big ol’ web of misinformation.

So even if the truth does come out, it sadly ends up not being heard because the wrong information has already been so circulated that more people believe that to be true than not. It is for that reason, and so very many others, that we urge people to do just a little bit of research first (for instance, in regard to the post about Peter doing cocaine, a look into drug history would have shown that cocaine was not “in vogue” as a drug in the ’60s and became much more widely used and available in the mid-’70s. Also, any interview with Peter where he discusses his drug use has him saying that in the ’60s, all they did was pot and acid).

In conclusion, we know this does not apply to the vast majority of folks here in the Monkees fandom on Tumblr, but we hope everyone will take our words under consideration. Thanks for reading, and we now return to your regularly scheduled Naked Persimmon-ing!

It’s the Fourth o’ JulyMonkees style!

Yes, there’s something for everyone this holiday, whether you’re Davy in a Redcoat uniform cocking your big ol’ bayonet in Micky’s direction, or Mike and Peter enjoying some kinky knickers-wearing historical roleplay.

So, to all of our followers in the U.S.: Happy Independence Day!

The British are coming…over to my house for a party tonight!”

Davy Jones is 200% done with everyone’s shit right now…
