We can all thank Ronnie Reagan for shutting down so many mental hospitals. People like this used to be kept from doing things that harmed both themselves and others.

Also, the last time a band debuted with a song that introduced the band itself, to go on to anything even remotely resembling fame... well, that band was called the Monkees, and they were a blatant ripoff of the Beatles. Made up entirely of actors (assembled by audition) who never actually played their instruments. So, we're not exactly talking about a band with a future, here. Or even a present, really.

What is this, I don't even? None of these people look like who they claim they do. Madonna should sue for having that hobbit woman claim she looks like her, they should all sue their plastic surgeons, and probably sue themselves for being so stupid.

Plastic surgery is the biggest crock of fraudulent shiat ever perpetrated by quacks in the long history of quackery. Plastic surgeons can't make you look like somebody else. They just make you look like yourself, only weird and farked up.

This guy tried to change his appearance and identity because the FBI were after him. Not surprisingly, it didn't work in the slightest.

OK, 2 things:

Any closer(Or with photons bouncing off that face) and Ray Charles could pick that out, even after being dead for a few years.

Elective plastic surgery for vanity purposes is a crock of crap a lot of the time.  However, I've seen some nose jobs that turned out quite well.  Face lifts, injections, and inserts?  Not so much.

But there are some very useful applications in more "essential" areas - cleft palates, reconstructive plastic surgery, and skin removal after significant weight loss.  And the results are often quite good.

I wouldn't go that far.  There are very valid reasons to get plastic surgery like after a horrible wreck or whatnot.  It is a valid medical practice however Hollywood level plastic surgeons are a load of crap  who take advantage of people with issues.

Mike Nesmith was a musician and wrote and produced some of the music. Peter Tork played guitar on some of the albums, too. And Mickey Dolenz had a great voice. I wouldn't call them a Beatles rip-off; they were just a very well-produced, mid-60s pop group, more like the Byrds or the Mommas and the Papas than the Beatles.

They've sold 65 million albums to date, and have three hits that are still in frequent play all over the world, so your argument is in valid.

But the Monkees are the reason Roddenberry cast Walter Koenig, so without their ripping off the Beatles, we wouldn't have Checkov.

The Plastics were an 80's New Wave band from Japan.


And they inspired Devo, Talking Heads, and the B-52s

Biv: Saborlas: Also, the last time a band debuted with a song that introduced the band itself, to go on to anything even remotely resembling fame... well, that band was called the Monkees, and they were a blatant ripoff of the Beatles. Made up entirely of actors (assembled by audition) who never actually played their instruments. So, we're not exactly talking about a band with a future, here. Or even a present, really.

Mike Nesmith was a musician and wrote and produced some of the music. Peter Tork played guitar on some of the albums, too. And Mickey Dolenz had a great voice. I wouldn't call them a Beatles rip-off; they were just a very well-produced, mid-60s pop group, more like the Byrds or the Mommas and the Papas than the Beatles.

They've sold 65 million albums to date, and have three hits that are still in frequent play all over the world, so your argument is in valid.


I gave my 13yr old papergirl all my original Monkee singles back in the mid 80s when they had a resugence in popularity, because she was nuts about them.
Turned out a few of them were worth 20some bucks each at the time - didn't care about that and neither did she.

Fark has a pretty rabid Monkees fanbase, so I gotta wonder if Saborlas is just trollbaiting.  Also, LOTS of bands are assembled by auditions. And Mike Nesmith punched a hole in the wall during a meeting with record co execs... can't get much more rock-n-roll than that.

Really? An 80's band influenced Devo, who were formed in 1972?  Odd that I can't find any reference to the other bands suggesting they were influenced by the plastics either.

One of the members of Devo was on the Kent State campus during the shootings in 1970 though.

http://clubdevo.com/news/item/4782-kent-state.html

Also, if Devo, Talking Heads, the B-52s, and Sigue Sigue Sputnik we're so influenced by the plastics, then why does their wikipedia page list the most notable bands who have covered their music as, "Polysics, Pizzicato Five, and Stereo Total." You'd think if someone was a big influence to you, you'd want to pay some sort of homage to them.

Saborlas: We can all thank Ronnie Reagan for shutting down so many mental hospitals. People like this used to be kept from doing things that harmed both themselves and others.

You realize that the calls for mass deinstitutionalization of the mentally ill originated from the left, right?  In the name of not treating them like they were crazy and isolating them.  I'll give you that Reagan caved in just as the left was beginning to come to their senses and turn against it (and that Reagan likely did it for reasons more financial than moral), but that was a pet cause of the left for decades.

Now that we've injected politics into a make-fun-of-others-to-feel-better-about-ourselves thread, let's get back to the task at hand.

 i think the girl on the left does have a bit of a resemblance to Lindsay Lohan; the others none at all.

WhoGAS: Anastacya: Mikey1969: OK, 2 things:

1. What the fark is an "Aqua'?

2.  And Venus D'Lite (that's the Madge-a-be) is really a man called Adam. No farking shiat? Wow, amazing. Wouldn't have known it at all. From 400 yards away, around a corner, and 500 feet underground in a mine that is experiencing a power outage. Any closer(Or with photons bouncing off that face) and Ray Charles could pick that out, even after being dead for a few years.

Ok, I guess I had 3 things:

3. WTH is up with the Justin Bieber (non)lookalike's farking eyes?

Aqua is a band from the 90s who has a song called "Barbie Girl". Was rather popular for a short time, had a line: "Life in plastic/ Is fantastic"...

Thank you for keeping the world more human and actually engaging in communication.


You're welcome :)

The One True TheDavid: The Numbers:

i think the girl on the left does have a bit of a resemblance to Lindsay Lohan; the others none at all.

That's what I thought. Too bad the article says she's trying to look like Jennifer Lawrence.


Oh dear. I don't imagine looking like Lohan counts for much in the way of compensation either.

Parthenogenetic: DerAppie: Walker: Anastacya: Walker: What is this, I don't even? None of these people look like who they claim they do. Madonna should sue for having that hobbit woman claim she looks like her, they should all sue their plastic surgeons, and probably sue themselves for being so stupid.

That "Madonna" is actually a man, baby.

/no, I am not making a joke, it really is a guy named Adam.

You actually read the article? I just looked at the pics and went into shock.

Aren't you in for a treat!

'Journalists' that don't know the difference between "between" and "among" or "amongst".

Can a person obtain a doctorate in pedantry or is it just a talent.


You must be born with it. It's a birth defect.

Or Alfred Newman. Now I'm off to set fire to my eardrums after hearing that hulking, steaming turd/abortion of a song.

Biv: Biv: Saborlas: Also, the last time a band debuted with a song that introduced the band itself, to go on to anything even remotely resembling fame... well, that band was called the Monkees, and they were a blatant ripoff of the Beatles. Made up entirely of actors (assembled by audition) who never actually played their instruments. So, we're not exactly talking about a band with a future, here. Or even a present, really.

Boyz to Men would like to have a word with you.

And you would know, wouldn't you?  How are Bell and DeVoe?  I figure it's about time for you guys to go on a nostalgia reunion tour.

You should actually read about The Monkees. A couple of them were musicians.


"A couple of them were musicians."  And this helps the pro-Monkees crowd how?

Look, we all have our guilty pleasures.  No problems there; I like bands that I know are bad, simply because I like them anyway and anyone who tells me otherwise can piss off.  So I get that.  Like who you like (and no, I don't want anyone to stop liking what I don't like).  But the OP, trolling or not, is mostly on target.  Like The Monkees because they bring you some nostalgia, or you enjoy their goofy antics, or whatever - no one else needs to understand that.  But don't try to tell us they were actually good.  Because they weren't.  They were the New Kids On The Block of their day - a manufactured band assembled in order to create a product to be sold on television and in stores, with no legitimate artistic intent behind the vision.  Maybe in that way they were actually ahead of their time, but I don't find that something to hang your hat on.

Don Kirshner and Bob Rafelson might not have had any artistic vision for them, but the band had other ideas, which is why they fought, and won, to a certain extent, for creative freedom and their own artistic integrity. Some of the other "legitimate" bands of the era were created in a similar fashion, though most people don't want to admit that. Hell, even the Beatles replaced members based on the type of image they wanted to convey, and not necessarily for "artistic purposes."

Actually, I say anyone who says the Monkees are crap should really go watch Head, where they dismantle their entire image and basically kill their own careers.

Fair enough.  I don't think they're "crap" either, just somewhere in between.  I appreciate that the original recruits strove to break the boundaries they were initially burdened with.

Indeed. There's a reason why the next group Kirshner managed were cartoon characters. :D

I'm a fan, but I will admit they had some crappy, schlocky stuff on the first couple albums. However, I do have issues with some, such as the OP who started the "debate," dismissing the group straight out of hand, and not realising the struggle the group had to control their own artistic output.

Also, some of the shiat that went on on the show, as a kid I never noticed the majority of the references and double entendres. I'd argue that the show holds up better than most shows from that particular era. The show was highly influential too. The Young Ones was basically a British version of The Monkees on crack.

I know I'm late to the thread, but this may be my favorite Monkees track:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNyGl0babiQ Mike Nesmith wrote it. It was the one that really made me go back and give the Monkees music another chance. There's a lot of brilliant pop-rock there. Also, one thing that always seems to get lost in any discussion about the Monkees is the fact that the reason we know they didn't play anything on their first two albums is because the Monkees told Don Kirshner to fark off and then went to the press about it. They admitted it, and the dirty little secret in the industry at that time is that almost NOBODY was allowed to play on their own records.
