Who We're Following

One interesting, little-known Robin Williams/Monkees factoid is that Robin Williams was considered for the role of The Riddler in the 1995 movie Batman Forever…and so was Micky Dolenz (the role ultimately went to Jim Carrey).

We’ve often compared the manic energy of Micky Dolenz (particularly on his commentary to the Daydream Believers biopic) to Robin Williams, but in truth, there can only be one Robin Williams, and no one will ever take his place. Still, one wonders what it would’ve been like if these two had ever had the opportunity to share the screen with each other…

It’s rather amazing how, when looking at many pictures of Micky Dolenz in the ’70s, you can practically smell the pungent combination of Aqua Velva and bong resin.

Micky: I’m telling you guys…it was a UFO. It was bright and sparkly and I saw it fly right over me when I was out there!
Mike: Mick…you gotta keep off the grass, man. There’s no such thing as UFOs. It was probably a plane, come on now.
Peter: I believe you, man. That’s way far out. I gotta ask, though, totally serious: Do you think alien chicks have three boobs? That’d be hot…
Davy: I LOVE THESE BLOODY DOMINOES! *laughs* I can feel all the grooves in ‘em, yeah man! Dom—domin—*laughs* I just fucking love this game! YEAH, DOMINOES!

And here it is, ladies and gentlemen! Our wonderful FB fan Sherri Hansen has finally uploaded video of Micky smacking Peter on the ass during “Papa Gene’s Blues” in Tulsa, OK! Notice as well that Micky and Peter are also flirting like hell with each other throughout the entire clip. Oh, what a lovely day it is to be a Monkees fan…

ONE YEAR AGO, people…

Friendly reminder that the ’80s were a really, really fucking weird time for the Monkees:
