Monkees Love Something Ugly Week

The Los Angeles band- Hearts And Flowers
brought to you by Mike from "Monkees In Manhattan" and the group Hearts and Flowers

Who: In an interview at the end of the "Monkees In Manhattan" episode, Mike tells off camera interviewer producer Bob Rafelson about an idea he heard the local Los Angeles band Hearts And Flowers doing. The idea that it's easy to dig something considered pretty and takes no special talent to do so. But what takes talent is digging something ugly. Mike gave the example of a garage door (which no one would say: "Oh, that's a great looking garage door!").
What: It might seem a really silly waste of cyberspace, My Share Of The Web as a public service is sponsoring the "Monkees Love Something Ugly Week".
Where: anywhere in your little corner of the world
When: There's no special week. I have chosen something to dig for each of the 52 weeks of the year.
Why: Well, because you're bored (Note: since you read this page you must be) or because you can.
Bonus: All the items come from one or several Monkees TV episodes. Do you know which ones? Click here to get the answers (no peeking now).
