I'm just a girl who REALLY loves the Monkees and happens to have photoshop. I'm always busy making GIFs and screen-caps and spreading the Monkee-love around. Enjoy!!


On one of my many days on the Monkee set, I met Mike’s beautiful mother.  She has reddish-auburn hair, dresses very smartly (no boots though!) and is as proud as she can be of her son.  “He’s always been a good boy and he always did have a way with humor.  But I never thought he’d make this kind of use of his talents!” Mike is continually adlibbing in his delightful drawl while the boys are shooting - nothing could have pleased his mom more than to see they way everyone enjoyed his work.

TUMBLR MONKEES AWARDS 2014: DAY 12, PART 1
Favorite Monkees side project: Davy’s horses
I’m not a huge fan of horse-racing in general, but I do love it that even after all the fame and fortune, Davy returned to his first love - horses. Most of his horses were rescues, and I love the way Davy gave them all the last name of Jones - so cute.  
Even more, I love the way his daughters started the Davy Jones Equine Memorial Foundation.  Check it out: www.djemf.com

From Tiger Beat’s official Monkee Spectacular, August 1967
His button says “love is to share”
Orgy organizer, anybody?

*flips tables* (I’ve just said that about cupcakes, but whatever…)

Between that and the Lady, Baby, and Baby’s Daddy situation, I’m just about convinced that Micky’s not the only Monkee who’s probably poly-by-nature.

Tumblr Monkees Awards 2014: Day 11, Part 2

Joke or story you’d most like Micky to stop telling during interviews: "There’s no accounting for taste"

Micky, oh Micky… I love you but please stop.  

Seriously, though, I absolutely love it when Micky steps out of his comfort zone and gives original, witty, and relevant answers during interviews.  But Micky really likes his comfort zone.  Give him a break, though.  Micky has expressed many times that interviews are not his favorite thing.

Thus, when an interviewer ultimately points out that the Monkees still have a lot of fans, we end up with Micky saying “there’s no accounting for taste” in a misguided attempt at humility.  Ugh.   

TUMBLR MONKEES AWARDS 2014: DAY 11, PART 1

Favorite song from Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, and Jones Ltd: Words

Technically this is a tie between “Words” and “Daily Nightly”, but since I already used “Daily Nightly” as an answer for a previous question, I’m going to let this one go to “Words”  :)

I’ll be honest, there’s a little too much wind chime for my taste, but otherwise this track is perfect!  I absolutely love the harmony between Micky and Peter’s vocals… a rare treat that we don’t get enough of in the Monkees world.  Why?  I have no idea.  I think they sound beautiful together.  

Besides, this is a great break-up song.  If you’re ever dumped by a lying bastard, just reach for a pint of ice-cream, put this song on, and have your own personal karaoke meltdown.

Funniest Monkee: Mike “to-keep-the-wind-off-me” Nesmith
Obviously, all the guys are funny!  Just in very different ways.  Micky was great at physical comedy and had a wonderful quirkiness about him.  Davy was hilarious in his own cheeky British way.  Peter plays the (adorable) fool amazingly well, and I love it when he lets his intelligence shine through.
To me, though, it’s Mike’s seemingly effortless wit that makes him the funniest.  He has perfect timing and delivery, and is a master at improv.  I especially love his interview responses!
