Who We're Following

And now, for something completely different…

There are those who sit in the dark of their computer room, night after restless night, unceasingly pondering life’s deepest and most thought-provoking questions. They ruminate, dwell…going so far as to search the recesses of their own souls for even the smallest sliver of enlightenment.

…And then there are those who sit in the dark of their computer room and start what is now NP’s newest favorite post ever: How Gay Were the Monkees?

…Ahem. Moving on…

A few things to keep in mind: What you’ll find in that thread is most certainly unverifiable gossip, and therefore everything should be taken with a considerably large grain of salt. That being said, some of the comments are downright hilarious, and this is our personal favorite:

Micky Dolenz is 69 years old and still sings/busts a mean move to “Goin’ Down” in concert, and if you don’t think that’s completely badass, you are wrong.

Hello! (Sorry to burden you with a trio of questions, but I'm curious) which Monkee do you think is the kindest (presently), which do you think has had the most constant and unchanged personality, and which do you think would make the best husband and why? m0ssytwigs

We’ll take this one question at a time…

1. Which Monkee do you think is the kindest (presently)?
Nez. It seems so unlikely, given his demeanor through his malcontent, hot-tempered youth, but Nez has mellowed out dramatically in his old(er) age. Every report we’ve heard from fans who’ve met him has been nothing but positive, and he’s really become this sweet, somewhat shy old Southern gentleman who knows just when and how exactly to be kind to people. So yes, we’d pick Nez out of the current Monkees.

2. Which Monkee do you think has had the most constant and unchanged personality?
Well, all of the Monkees have shades of their younger selves in their current personalities, though obviously to different degrees. But we’d have to say the most constant one would be Micky. It’s not only the fact that he looks damn near the same as he did 45+ years ago (just a bit older), or that his singing voice sounds almost identical, but Micky has always seemed to be the one who gets along with everyone—the “glue” that hold the Monkees together. Though he was a lot wilder in the ’60s and ’70s, his quintessential “Mickyness” has been constant throughout the years, and that is something for which we can all be grateful. Yes indeed.

3. Which Monkee do you think would make the best husband and why?
Oh, boy. Well…not for anything, but asking this question is sort of like asking, “Which slice of day-old uncovered American cheese is the tastiest?” Because they’re all pretty much the same, in a sense. Let’s look at the facts: All of the Monkees have been/were married three times (now four, in Peter’s case). At least three have cheated on their spouses at one time or another, and in one instance, fathered a child out of wedlock (“her name was Nurit…and she liked it when I did that thing with her feeeEEEEETTT…”). Anyway, yes. Marrying one of these guys would probably not be unlike bringing home a puppy: He’s all cute and adorable in the window, but the second the ring’s on, he’s peeing on the furniture and chasing after the miniskirt-wearing French poodle next door. (No wonder Bob Barker recommends neutering your pets. Sheesh…)

Peter just has no idea what is going on.

Peter: Where’s Davy? HE’S GONE!
Micky: Yeah, I wonder where Davy i—hellooo there, pretty lady! Hey, what’s your sign? Wanna go someplace private and I swear I’ll totally lose this ridiculous shirt?
Mike: I know where Davy’s at. But I’m not tellin’ you. Nope. This town ain’t big enough for two Capricorns. Even if one of ‘em’s a real short stack. Short stack…goddamn, now I want some pancakes…
