I'm hooked on Brian Auger's Oblivion Express, guess it's the Hammond organ, I love that instrument. I'm even considering to see him play in Dortmund in November, although of course he's been a lot cooler in the 60's/70's...

And because this came up in a discussion & I'm bored, I decided to create my Top 10 of Monkee pants (with "illustrations"):
Okay... let's see. I think this is gonna be heavy on the Peter & Mike side, just because I think they have the prettiest legs...

  1. It's got to be Mike's red brown pants that he wears in the Rainbow Room videos (actually I think all their pants in that videos are fab). I really can't help but stare past the one that's singing at that pants. It's worst in Randy Scouse Git.

  2. The velvety pants Peter wears. He has a blue and a red pair, I prefer the red one.

  3. Their beach outfits.

    (erm, yeah, I couldn't not post that last one, could I?)
  4. Peter's white pants.

  5. This pair of Mike's. Pretty similar to the red brown ones, but boy has he legs in that pair! ;)

  6. The blue pants Peter wears in Head, especially combined with the boots.

  7. These grey pants.

  8. Mike's dark stripy pants (he also has a lighter pair, but these look better)

  9. Davy's white jeans(?) in 33 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee (crappy pic, sorry).

  10. Micky's blue pants as seen in Monkees Blow Their Minds.

Honorable mentions go to:
  • The jeans they wore in The Wild Monkees

  • The dark outfits from Mijacogeo and Art For Monkees' Sake

  • The pants of their suits (all of them, they look great in suits).

  • And Peter's bicoloured pants, just because they're so... Peter.

  • And every last second of the Porpoise Song video from the end of Head: slow motion AND close-ups!
Of course this is just my humble opinion... what do you think?

Ahahah I love this post. :DD I think I might have to follow your example and make a similar post. Or maybe I could make that of shirts... nah, pants are better :P

(erm, yeah, I couldn't not post that last one, could I?)
No. :D

Glad you like! :D
Hahaha, while searching for good scenes to cap I actually thought "Someone should do this for shirts, some of them are just ace". But yes, yes, make your own Top 10, I'd like to see it! :D

Oh, and talking 'bout shirts: Did they just have the same ones or did they exchange them a lot? You know that one green shirt that Micky, Mike and Peter wore at some point, but never at the same time? It makes me very suspicious...

:DD Shirts are more difficult, I think - I have a few favourites, including the #1 shirt, but somehow their pants just get my attention more easily. ;)

I think they exchanged them, yeah. Is this the shirt you're referring to? 'Cause my computer screen is stupid and doesn't sometimes like to show green colour, so I see this as blue, but I think I saw it as blue even when my display wasn't stupid. :D But it's the only shirt I can posivitely say they've all worn (Davy wore this in Prince and the Pauper). :D

Unless they made copies, of course, but I doubt they made five copies of that same shirt. :P

No, actually I meant the one Mike wears in this clip ( (I'm too lazy to do a screencap & that clip is soooo cute! "Miiiiiike!").
But I remember them all wearing that blue shirt, too! And Peter and Davy shared that light blue shirt...

Oh that shirt, I remember that shirt. :D I actually watched that episode last night, partly just because of that "Miiiike!" thing - can there *be* anything cuter? :D (Well, yeah, possibly - "I wanna stay here where it's safe, with you, Michael". :P)

Mike and Peter are almost always cute together. I also love how Peter says "Hi Mike!" when him and Micky enter the room in 33 1/3 Revolutions... don't really no why, it just sounds really adorable.

Peter (this time the real Peter) also sounds really adorable when he quotes Mike in some interview - it's just "Hello, Peter" in a funny tone, but I can't help finding it deeply cute. :D

Yeah, it really does.

I believe that they shared clothes. The "Flip" magazines that I have read insist that they don't, but, there are too many items that pop up on more than one monkee. I have a theory that the red pants mike wears in the "rainbow room" are the same red pants peter wears in other episodes. I'm not sure, but i think they are corduroy.

Really? Maybe I'll have to go back and check that...

But I'm with you: they were sharing. Just take that light blue shirt with the wide sleeves that Davy wears, when Peter wears an identical/the same shirt it fits him a lot tighter... I think it's the same.

Hahahaha! You are hilarious.

You know, because of you, the other night I had a dream that I was drawing Peter's portrait. He was looking a bit villainous and frowning (in a pleasant way) and had a goatee. And I was drawing him from memory, as if I just draw his portrait all the time.

PS - I would like some of Peter's blue velvet pants in my size, please.

I think I saw some like them in H&M last winter... but you'll have to wear two different coloured socks with them. ;)

Ohhh, I don't have an H&M near me! I wish I did!!! The closest is about 5 hours away!

Heeee! Could you maybe really draw it and send it over to me? ;)

Oh, and thanks. This is just the usual madness when I'm left on my own and get bored, should I worry

I don't know if I could really draw him - maybe I'll give it a try later on. But if I attempt to draw what I drew in the dream, I'm afraid the dream version will disappear from my mind! Oh no!

Oh no! Then maybe better don't.
It's so frustrating when you imagine a drawing and then it doesn't turn out like you want it to.

You've got some sweet choices in there.

I'm with you on the counts, especially 5, 7, 8 and 9...and the honorable mention of the dark outfits.

Good viewing, these.

I'm actually torn. Since I've only seen the whole series once through, I don't know them well...but I'm thinking either the grey pants or the dark outfits.

Mmmmm...Mike in the dark pants...

No, it's cool. Just don't expect too many interesting things. It's a source of silliness for me and a handful of friends with periodic bouts of fanfic and personality quiz taking.

May I return the favor?

Me, too! [ profile] liadela made it.

Actually I love it! The video for No Time is probably the only time Mike is acting really really goofy while the others aren't. Oh, and it's hilarious how his belt seems to be almost at the height of Davy's sternum.

How about Peter's bicolored pants from Hillbilly Honeymoon? Those are awesome too. (I thought I had a picture of them but sadly I don't)

I considered them, but in the end I picked the orange ones. They're definitely great too.
Then again I haven't seen Peter in pants I didn't like... oh, maybe the red ones with the pocket from the Christmas episode.

That's okay! We could use more bad examples in the world.

And anyway, it's not like you have to teach me to think naughty things about Michael Nesmith~!

Though I have a soft spot in my heart for the other three, I just can't think of them like that. Especially not Davy and Micky (shame Davy grew up to be so unattractive.)

Date: 2007-11-11 12:32 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Oh, thinking naughty things about Peter is pretty easy for me too. Especially because he really was the naughty one.
I like Micky, but he's too skinny and Davy just never did it for me, not even when he was younger. Sorry, Davy.

From: [identity profile]
WAS he? See, this is why I friended you! He didn't seem the type. xD

Davy was just adorable, though. Not so much attractive in the way Nez and Peter were, but Davy makes me want to pinch his cheeks.

I dunno about Micky. He just isn't very attractive to me, though that might be because he looks a lot like a female friend of mine. xD
