Hey NP! It occurred to me that this year marks the 20th anniversary of the '97 reunion special. Have you heard any rumors that it may be rereleased on DVD/BluRay/digitally, and if not, how likely do you think the possibility might be?
Christina! This is an excellent question. Nez actually just mentioned the ‘97 special in an interview he recently did on a Monkees podcast (which you can listen to by clicking HERE). He basically says that he might release a few clips on the newly-created Videoranch Youtube channel, but that’s as far as he’s going to go with it without talking to the other Monkees. Nez actually seemed to think there wasn’t/isn’t much interest in the ‘97 special (informally known as A Lizard Sunning Itself on a Rock), so if folks perhaps make a little noise and clue him in…who knows? We can keep our fingers crossed. If nothing else, it would be nice to hear some audio commentary to explain any/all of the following…

The Reedus said: If they say to you, “Where have you come from?” say to them, “We have come from the Reedus, from the place where the Reedus came into being by himself, established by himself, and appeared in his image.”
If they say to you, “Is it you?” say, “We are the Reedus’ children, and we are the chosen of the living Reedus.”
If they ask you, “What is the evidence of the Reedus in you?” say to them, “It is orgasm and joy.”
context: at one point during 1901, i had raised my camera really high and immediately notice that chris had looked my way and he literally… bopped in place just looking for the duration of the verse where he didnt need to play anything
ooc ⥽ Yo sorry I’ve not been here the past few days. I’ve been:
distracted by my new Plankton blog
busy making the final arrangements for my continued college education
estranged from Aku
( It doesn’t hurt to mention that Aku’s been kinda moody and depressed lately, too. He doesn’t really want to talk to anyone, no matter how much I try to prod or push him. He’s been too worried about Rick to care about anybody else… )
All that aside, I plan to visit again this coming Thursday when Rick awakens from his coma. Maybe then Aku will have something to say.
In the meantime, catch me over on my new Plankton blog! I’ll be following all my mutuals over there by this evening’s end! ⥼
Thinking on it, Loki should really have just dropped the whole Asgard thing and moved to Greece to hang with the Olympians
Like, Loki’s worst bits of mischief, up to and including murder, is just Zeus’ casual Tuesday. Plus everyone is always busy either fucking with someone if not actually fucking them. There’s a god of drinking and theatre (professional artful lying, holy shit). Also a god of chilling in the woods and banging nymphs and/or lonely shepherds (ideal). Two love/beauty/lust deities (doubly ideal, good on Mama Aphrodite and Son Eros, great family tradition). No prophesy of an apocalyptic showdown to look forward to–or any kind of narrative to bind the gods, period (Fuck Yes). The local mortals are all nerds in togas or oiled up muscle men (c:). Balmy weather, access to spices (C:).
Honestly, it’d just be
Zeus: What convinces you, god from the north, that you have a place here among my family? Among the gods of sky and sea and earth, the gods who are all the power and inspiration of the world? What right have you, foreign trickster, to the gates of Olympus?
Loki: Oh, is this the job interview? Damn, and here I am without my power suit. Let me change real quick
Loki, naked: So my work history is,
Zeus, naked: Hera, have someone clear out the guest room
