Enjoying a Jack Daniels & water on this lazy Sunday before my classes begin.
I’m watching a Monkees episode with Rip Taylor as a guest star, so all is well.
It’s got what had to be Jeffrey Epstein’s favorite Monkees song “Cuddly Toy” featured, as well as “The Door Into Summer,” a tune co-penned by Nesmith’s bud Bill Martin. I was apartment neighbors with Martin for a while some years back. Nice guy.
And for MORE small world coincidence, I was also neighbors with Martin’s screenwriting partner for a few years before that. Another nice guy.
But not Rip Taylor. I never got to be his neighbor. I wonder if he’d throw his toupeé over my fence.
Now they’ve switched over to the Fairy Tale episode, one of the weirder and more clever ones, actually. Complete with “Daily Nightly” just to run the table on making it a 1967 time capsule.
I’ll savor my drink, do the crossword, and make dinner. Back to work tomorrow. Oy.
