Mmmmmmmm....

And so, just a few months after Davy Jones passes away, Michael Nesmith announces on Facebook that he will join Micky and Peter for a 12-city tour this winter. Mmmmm.

Unfortunately, they will NOT be comin' to our town, the closest they will be to us is the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles (where Barb and I saw all four of them in 1988), on November 10th. I doubt we'll be able to afford it, although I wish we could -- that was a great, great show. And to see Michael Nesmith again? *sigh*

I listened to this story yesterday, and this man scares the HELL out of me. Because it IS possible to re-write history, take a look at Texas schools. And history will be determined by the winners, and we are headed for The Handmaiden's Tale. *shiver*

Well, I've long thought...

Cities are::

California Center for the Arts – Escondido CA
Arlington Theatre – Santa Barbara CA
Greek Theatre – Los Angeles CA
Flint Center for the Performing Arts – Cupertino CA
State Theatre – Minneapolis MN
The Chicago Theatre – Chicago IL
Lakewood Civic Auditorium – Cleveland OH
The Center for the Arts – Buffalo NY
Keswick Theatre – Philadelphia PA
State Theatre Regional Arts Center – New Brunswick NJ
The Paramount – Huntington NY
The Beacon Theatre – New York NY

The California dates are the only ones that are even remotely close enough for us to see.

I shiver at some of the rhetoric coming over the airwaves.

Well, this was the ACTUALLY fair and balanced NPR, which really does give air time to all sides -- without passing judgement or opinion, which I like. Because there were people they talked to who said he was froot-loop crazy. Fortunately.

Fundies are dangerous. They should wear signs.

Why couldn't my Monkees get along?? *still sad about Davy*

I know.

A shame. Davy used to say such mean, horrible things about Michael, it's no wonder he rarely wanted to join them. It's sad. I know they were thrown together and weren't a "real" band, but there was a chemistry there.
