"Mess of Help" would be a great showcase for Blondie!
3  Smiley Smile Stuff / Book Reviews / The Beach Boys Coloring Book by Ken Gillian on: January 09, 2019, 04:36:57 PM
I picked up the BB Coloring Book on a lark, being an artist and having a little extra gift money left over. It turns out to be a bit of a disappointment.

The images are based on photos and some artwork (probably found online), run through Photoshop effects filters to remove the color and leave just enough graytones to color through.

That wouldn't have been so much of an issue with me in itself, but it's clear the author/editor doesn't have a clue as to who is a Beach Boy and who is not. Three of the images are of BB cover/tribute bands. Another is of Don Was and yet another is of Paul Simon. There are a few images of the BBs themselves, including the cover of Jon Stebbins' FAQ book, one of Dennis, one of Brian and Carl, but the majority of the images are of Brian in later years, including on with Landy and one with Melinda.

Weird -- not really, just lazy!  Thud

On the other hand, I'm going to enjoy getting creative with some of these images.

The ranking threads are polls of sorts...

Would the mods be willing to create a child board for all the currently pinned Smiley "ranking" threads on the General On-Topic Discussions board? These threads are sitting at the top and not being added to much. It would be nice (pun intended) to have room at the top for more currently active threads. Thanks!

10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian's Mt. Vernon & Fairway artwork + have any BBs members done visual art? on: December 19, 2018, 07:49:55 PM
Not sure I have a photo of this handy (and the original is tucked away in a portfolio that I can't get to without a lot of work), but it was once used in a DW issue of ESQ.

I was at a BB concert back when I was in art school in 1968. Dennis came out into the audience during one of the opening acts, to play with the soundboard. I had my sketchbook with me, because I had an assignment to do gesture sketches of people -- so why not the BBs, heh? So I went over to Dennis at the soundboard, did a quick sketch of him working the board, and introduced myself. He signed the page with my drawing of him and did one for me in return.

Blondie is an artist. He was selling prints of his abstract, brightly-colored portrait of Brian at tours earlier this year. That was the one thing I was really hoping to score at Brian's Atlanta show, but they didn't have any of Blondie's art there.

Also, I own an original sketch by Dennis Wilson. It's a very quick, simplified woman's face.

Erroneous post deleted.

I think that one also applies to Wake the World.
14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys reference in SNL (I think) on: December 16, 2018, 11:45:11 AM
Yes, they're all Matt Damon.

I think it is a tribute -- if you look at the original album, the poses are similar to Al, Dennis, and Mike's.

Thank you, Mark -- and thanks expecially for these packages! Does the live set have credits too? Thanks in advance.
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1968 Copyright Extension Release Thread on: December 15, 2018, 02:29:14 PM
Has anyone seen a list of credits for the new live set -- and has anyone seen a press release for any of the three new sets?
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1968 Copyright Extension Release Thread on: December 14, 2018, 02:17:49 PM
Bought the new set on iTunes, organized it into a playlist for each concert, and have been listening. I'm loving the detail of the sound on this release. Might there be a remastered Live in London in our future? The first show from Finsbury Park Astoria sounds great!

28   Their Hearts Were Full Of Springs (Live In Fargo, ND, 1968)
BOOOIIIIINNNNNGGGG!
What's it mean? Is it slang?

It's an attempt to make an onomatopeaia (or sound effect) for hearts full of springs.

Goober Peas
Whose song it's? Is it even cool song?

"Goober Peas" is an old folk song from the American South. Goober peas is slang for boiled peanuts. The BBs played a verse of the song as a joke.

A quick perusal of the not-always-100%-reliable setlist.fm shows only a few strange 1968 setlist inclusions, mostly or all presumably from shows from which no recordings exist/survive. [...]

Goober Peas - Memphis 4/24
Papa Oom Mow Mow - Memphis 4/24

Yes, they did play those two -- I was there. Because it was at the end of a particularly difficult tour, they were a bit more relaxed.

I can't thank Alan and Mark enough for these releases, but I'll  try:

THANK YOU VERY, VERY, VERY, VERY MUCH!!

Having heard this track once, I don't ever need to hear it again.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1968 Copyright Extension prediction thread on: December 07, 2018, 06:23:35 PM
Has there been any press release put out on this? I've been looking, but haven't found one so far.

Also, Paradise Cove was spared by the recent fire in Malibu.
