“Seeing pictures of Michael and Phyllis together makes me feel happy. She was just seventeen-years-old when this handsome young man happened to fall in love-at-first-sight with her when they were in college. Later pursuing a relationship and getting married, they raised several kids, and—unlike other Monkees girlfriends/wives—the fans actually spoke kindly about Phyllis! Magazie articles wrote on how she’s the “ideal housewife” and she got to share her own fashion choices and beauty tips. Meanwhile, Mike spoke on how being married made him “whole,” and that he knew Phyllis was “right for [him].” They had a beautiful relationship.”
“I find it creepy when some bloggers talk about how “sexy” and “hot” Nez is and all these weird sexual comments. It’s not as bad if your thinking about young nez but it’s like…that’s someone’s dad, grandad etc. I just find it weird. Oh well, to each their own I suppose…”
“I came across a hilarious GIF set here on Tumblr, showing a familiar looking ’60s musician getting beaten up by two jealous swimsuit models. After learning that it was from The Monkees TV series, that’s when I finally became fully interested in watching the show.
Plus, the fact that this was the first Monkee I became familiar with through the GIF set—and also that he’s tall, skinny, and wears a signature hat—I consider him to be the cutest member of the group.”
