Who did Micky compare Davy to recently when he says: "_________, the face that launched a thousand ships, and Davy is the face that shipped a thousand lunch boxes"?
Helen Of Troy
Ref: Well anyone who knows their Greek legends should have known it’s quite a
big saying, you see Helen was a bit of a looker….. so I fail to see the
analogy myself mawhawhawhaw… Basically she was stunning by all reports, and ran
away to be with a Trojan, she being Greek it didn’t sit too well with
her family and war! So you have to wonder if the context is because being
Royal her face was seen at new boat sendings off, or the fact because of her
face a ton of ships set off to Troy to beat up Johnny foreigner… [ it the
second by the way.] It’s in the story of the Trojan War [which also brought
about the saying beware of Greeks bearing gifts] look for The Iliad by
Homer, nope not Simpson just a dude named Homer, a nice lil book with it
in. Micky’s commentary on the US version of DVD ‘Daydream Believers The
Monkees Story’. If you want to complain you’re not American or don’t have
the DVD well sorry as I say Ancient History covers it go look it up and I
have the US DVD and I’m a Brit so no pity on you from me! Also look here:
When the Monkees were driven away in the tank at the end of "Head", who was the only Monkee that left his eyes open?
Ref: Yes I know if you watch Head you see Micky and Davy open their eyes too
this is why you only got one shot cause Peter ‘I don’t mind going blind due
to dirty water syndrome’ Tork has them open the full tank bit once dunked in
fully….. he has a thing about it. Oh to make it clear watch Head.
In "Monkee Chow Mien", what time is it on the grandfather clock when Micky goes downstairs for something for his upset stomach?
Ref: Monkee Chow Mien no one has an excuse for not seeing this….. well
unless you haven’t had it released in your country one way or another….. but
still…… What I want to know is if it’s a.m. or p.m. If you thought it was
6.45 then sorry you need to look very carefully at the clock hands. The
long hand covers most of the VI which is a 6 and the shorter one hits the
bottom of the IX or 9…..

How did the name of the album "Pool It!" come about?
Whilst on the tour bus in 1986 after rehearsals, Peter &
bickering, [no you cry they don’t argue surely, especially not Peter he’s
so sweet he doesn’t argue or get mean with anyone…..] over something rather
dumb it seems, Micky getting sick of their petty argument yelled at them
"Pool It!" Meaning of course cool it….. of course Peter and Davy found this
snigger worthy [don’t even try to get pc with me over snigger look it up in
a dictionary!] and it became the LP’s name.

What is the solo piano piece Peter plays towards the end of "33 1/3"?
Ref: Okay there are 2 schools of thought over the piece so
if you got one or
the other you got the points, both you get a gold cap of smugness. There are
those out there who have tried to track down the pieces and have stated them
one way or the other the 33 1/3 video has the second as do quite a lot of
places, they are wrong as most people seem to be wising up to. But there are
some CD versions of the soundtrack and this site:
http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Towers/3152/33.html which differ…..

selective vegetarian. Especially in Mayor when he’s eating beef…. The
