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.

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.

wait... maybe Saborlas was anti-trolling, and really convocating the Monkees heads!

KingKauff: 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.

Nice trolling


Also, the Monkees' debut single was "Last Train to Clarksville," which came out a month BEFORE the TV show premiered, so "Hey, Hey, We're the Monkees" wasn't even how they debuted. HA!

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.

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.


Yeah, rehab plastic surgery is fine. I'm a big opponent of nose jobs, though; they just turn interesting faces into boring ones.

RIP, Jennifer Gray's super cute nose.

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

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

As would Sigue Sigue Sputnik.


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.

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.

/and Dolenz bought the first commercially available Moog synth.

For those who are not as brave(or stupid) as I am, the song is actually WORSE than the plastic surgery results. At least the first 15 seconds after the intro is.
