Happy Birthday, Mike Nesmith!

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Thu, Dec 30, 2010 at 10:44 AM

A rousing "Happy Birthday" to Michael Nesmith, formerly of The Monkees who turns a rousing 68 years old today! Besides being a very talented musician and songwriter, Mike has also clocked time as a movie producer (Repo Man), author, internet pioneer, and philanthropist. And while The Monkees television show was often pooh-poohed at the time for being too commercial, Mike's influence was on the show was anything but. Check out the hilarious and weird opening of episode 57 where Mike (as Frank Zappa) is interviewed by Frank Zappa (as Mike). Then wonder how TV got so fucking boring.
