Michael Nesmith Appreciation Society Continued…

Just caught the podcast of the Garry Meier Show, one of my favorite radio shows in my hometown of Chicago. A youngish caller (she sounded like she was in her teens or early 20s) was gushing about meeting Mike Nesmith at a recent meet and greet.  Garry said “I thought all the guys liked Mike Nesmith and the girls liked Davy Jones.” The female newscaster then chimed in, saying that she also preferred the “strong & silent” Nez.

There were also a few PG-13 insinuations about erotic uses for liquid paper..

Well, the Daily Mail has to fill up space somehow. Non-story.

Monkees Awards- Day 10

Favorite Monkees related story:

Definitely Micky’s Hyde Park story. Brings a smile to my face every time I hear it (unlike some of Micky’s overused stories)


Funniest Monkee:

Well, they’re all hilarious in different ways, but I’d have to call it a tie between Micky’s hyper silliness and Mike’s dry sense of humor -

"He’s gone!"

"Do you suppose it has anything to do with the fact that this is a crayon?"

Favorite Song From Headquarters

For Pete’s Sake

Which Monkee Would You Most like to meet?/Which one did you enjoy meeting most?

I met Micky at the Hollywood Show (autograph show) last year and he was really cool! I wish I could meet Mike, but he’s not doing any meet and greets on his mini-US tour later this month (unless they announced it when I wasn’t looking.)

Monkees Awards Day 8

Favorite Monkee Fashion Era - 1968/ Hippie Era

I liked the first-season Monkees just fine when I was a kid, but I didn’t fall wildly in love with them until they became full-on hippies in the 2nd season

Best Actor:

Overall - Peter, since he really had to play a character instead of an extension of his real life personality like Micky, Mike and Davy.
