Mike on Snowden, Yet Another Great Facebook Post

Mike's latest FB post.  This is how he discusses the upcoming tour, the king of non-sequiturs and ANYTHING except the matter at hand.

This just in from Mike.

I hardly know where to begin. We – Micky and Peter and I – are in rehearsals for the Monkees tour that starts in Port Chester New York next Monday and now we find out that Wiki leaks is keeping secrets. It boggles the mind.

You would think Wiki leaks would be more forthcoming about Snowden. After all, they are wiki leaks -- the preeminent secrets teller-- and that they would not stoop to keeping secrets especially when they know very well that Snowden is with us at the Monkees rehearsals as I write this.

Frankly I don’t care who knows it.

He came in even before we were set up and he is a bit of a pest but a real whiz on the computer. I didn’t believe it was him when he first told me but Peter insists that it is really him because he knows a guy that knew Micky that says it most definitely is Snowden. He also looks like him, a little. Same glasses. He is at the rehearsals with us and he says he is going to be on the bus reporting on the tour.

I can’t really tell. But all the signals are there. He came in and got right on line in the studio wifi, like, in seconds -- and it took me about an hour just to get somebody to tell me the password. It’s as if Snowden is a magician or something when it comes to code words and computer stuff. (I kept hitting the caps lock key and didn’t know it which is why I couldn’t get the password to work. I had the word right actually from the beginning – and don’t think I got it from wiki leaks, because I didn’t. Austin, the guitar tech told me.)

I’m really not one to talk. As many of you know I had the Higgs Boson for years under the bed at my house while everyone was looking for it. I wasn’t keeping it a secret though. I kept writing the guys at Cern and telling them I had it even before they built that big LHC for billions -- but they thought I was a crank. And it turns out that when I finally sent it to them it wasn’t the Higgs after all – even though they published that it was and had
this big party and all – and by then they knew it wasn’t the Higgs.

But this guy is definitely Snowden and he is at the rehearsal here with the band and all of us and I don’t know what the fuss is all about. He seems nice. He is eating a lot of the snacks we have.

He says the show is looking great and that he will help us promote it—he says he knows how to get the word out – and to encourage everyone to come. We can use the help.

We are working really hard to put together the best show ever. New video looks great, couple of new songs, the music sounds great and I have some new t shirts for the show. Hope you can get out to see it.

Snowden says that if he wasn’t committed to wiki leaks to keep his whereabouts a secret that he would actually invite everyone to the rehearsals. He thinks they are that good.

I like this guy – and I am sure it’s him now, after all those compliments.
See you on the 15th in NY with the Monkees!!
