Something about this just kills me; I really want to lay my head on his shoulder and laugh with him. <3

From the audition screen test, used in the pilot, all the way to the tag interview of Fairy Tale, Rafelson knew the dramatic gold that could be spun by prodding repeatedly at Michael’s tender self-confidence. Michael paid him back with moments like this. It makes me like Mike—but it doesn’t make me like Rafelson.

Favorite Iconic TV Show Moment: Mike’s valiant struggle to get through a “Save the Texas Prairie Chicken” scene without laughing every time he looks at Micky’s face.

a little personal monkees tale
When I rediscovered the Monkees in 2011 I had just had my baby girl (she’s a little over 3 now!) It was such a simple time— all she did was smile, poop, eat and sleep. She slept a LOT. So, I was fortunate enough to be able to lay beside her and watch Monkees episodes. I would have to stifle my giggles so as not to wake her during particularly hilarious Monkees moments.
The Monkees are so special to me and now I have this intertwined memory and feeling of my daughters early months on this earth and the amazingness that is the Monkees. It’s pretty neat. The very first time I left her with a babysitter (my mother, lol) was to see the Monkees perform in Nov 2011 and her very first concert was Peter Tork & Shoe Suede Blues.
So the other day, a Neil Diamond song came on the radio and my daughter perks up and says, “Mommy, is dis the Monkees or, wait no? Who is singing? Is dat Michael SNesmith?” lol! I said, “No but he wrote some Monkees songs!” and she said, “Oh yea cause it does sound like them, like that little umm, little, thing you shake? tamboo-riney?”
Me: *meticulously rearranges apps so that Mike’s dreamy face can peek through*
