Topic: Happy Sweet 17, MF&TVV!
A very special occasion today.
On the very afternoon of this day in 1997, I sowed seeds of a new Monkees fansite, which blossomed to well beyond full flower over the years. I activated a free account @ Tripod, settled down in in a computer lab @ Isaac Delgado Community College, took keyboard in hand and gave life to The Monkees Film & TV Vault, a Monkees fan page (loosely patterned after Louis Colli's The Monkees Music Vault) which is a comprehensive guide to The Monkees' filmed work, on TV and the big screen, the product of 10+ long years' worth of research, and (for my money) the first-ever fully detailed account of The Monkees' film and television history.
Now as you may have guessed as to that special occasion, today marks its 17th anniversary on The World Wide Web!
Again, as always, a deeply felt thanks to all of you, Web surfers and Monkees devotees alike, for all your love, support, and many invaluable contributions without which The Monkees Film & TV Vault's 17 years could not have been possible.
