lindalouwho: Walker: Mikey1969: OK, 2 things:

1. What the fark is an "Aqua'?

Man, I feel old...just for being able to remember the 90's.

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?

Too much plastic surgery.

Yikes. He's approaching cat-looking-too-much-plastic-surgery having-lady levels.

Thought about googling her name, figured no one would know her by it.

Mikey1969: Yeah, people don't really realize that The Monkees were actual musicians, and a large part of that is because of the show.

On the topic of 'Different Drum', here is an awesome cover of it.

that's awfully non-specific.


Sorry, it was John Hawkins.

Who needs plastic surgery? All I had to do was age. I'm pushing 50, losing my hair, and I look exactly like famed actor Daniel Stern. Total cost: $0.00.

LazyMedia: 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.

I'll give the doctor's one thing, they really did capture the essence of smug douchebaggery in the face of fake Bieber. Though, they could have gotten the same results by writing "I'm an asshole" on his forehead with a sharpie.

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.

That's the one I guessed.  She looks a little like her, absolutely nothing like Lawrence.

The author is right about getting a medal if you can sit through it. I made it just to end of the "Jennifer Lawrence" girl speaking her "part" and even that was Autotuned. What a bloody waste of technology.

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.

"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."

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.
