monkeemania berkata this, and I think any peminat can apply it to their kegemaran shows:
“Like for me, they are like my best friends. They have taught me so many things like anda don't need to know someone for them to be your friend. all they have to do is be there for anda always, cheer anda up when your down, and help anda get through tough situations. the monkees do all this for me, a girl they don't even know. And that's why i Cinta them so much.”
And the people who aren’t fans, the people who put us down for “living in your parents’ basement” atau whatever, they just don’t get that. Some people just don’t make Friends easy, atau have trouble keeping friends, atau they can’t find someone to be there for them all the time, anytime they need them. Let’s face it: that kind of relationship just doesn’t happen that often. And that’s why we use TV shows, atau books, atau movies, atau music, atau whatever. anda get to know these people, fictitious atau not, and anda can learn from them. Seeing their problems helps anda get through yours. It sounds strange, but it’s true. My best friends, aside from the Monkees, include the Winchesters, the original Enterprise crew, Dr. David Banner, the Clampetts, the Skywalkers, Eragon and Saphira and all their friends, Bugs and Daffy and their pals, Sid and Manny and Diego, Hiccup and Toothless and the rest of the Riders of Berk, and many, many more. And I know I’m not the only one who can name off a similarly long senarai of best Friends that they’ll never meet.
