My concern still is more for the people who attended the fair beyond this single concert.

Aug. 13 -- Marysville, OH -- All Ohio Balloon Fest
Event cancelled

To nobody's surprise here, the Ohio Balloon Festival has apparently been postponed to 2021. Still waiting for confirmation from the event site itself, but at least one local news story (hit a paywall, so can't link) and the Balloon Fest's FB page have mentioned cancellation.

And according to another phantom local news story, M&B did play the fair in MO last night.

Signed the petition and shared it on Mike Love’s FB Page ...

If fans are going to share the petition to Mike's FB, it needs to be shared to Brian's and Al's FB pages as well, to keep a consistent positive tone about how very much the fans want this release. The idea is to convince everyone that there's a viable market and a strong demand for this box set.

Only thing I can say is petition, petition, petition. Swamp the social media of each person (read:Mike) who might be standing in the way and make your voices heard.

And stress the positive when you post -- you want to convince them there's a market that truly wants this product.
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: July 29, 2020, 10:17:35 AM
Howie, what can we fans do to encourage the "powers that be" to set a release date and let them know how hungry we are for this product? I don't normally preorder on Amazon, but I'd gladly do so for this box set.
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2020 Tour Thread on: July 28, 2020, 02:25:00 PM
Lonely Summer, I feel that way about live concerts right now. Not worth the risk... Right now, I'm not optimistic about attending the comedy show I have tix for in November.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2020 Tour Thread on: July 28, 2020, 11:43:03 AM
It's even worse for the Miami Marlins, with 14 17 players and staff testing positive. And some states still think holding a fair with lots of people in one place is OK right now....

Unbelieveably, two new confirmed dates for M&B:

July 30 -- Springfield, MO -- Ozark Empire Fair (face masks required)
Aug. 21 -- Cedar Rapids, IA -- McGrath Amphitheatre

Even holding a fair right now seems pretty darn risky to me, let alone playing one. Too many people together in one area, no matter how many precautions you take or require. (And no, I'm not going to Disney World anytime soon.)

Does Nebraska have any restrictions in place on how many people can gather together right now?

If the box set gets pushed back to the end of this year or the beginning of next, the digital version could get released before the box itself. If packaging delays are what's holding thing up, it makes some sense to go digital first.

Aug. 5 -- Colorado Springs, CO -- Pikes Peak Center
Rescheduled to Aug. 4, 2021

The governor of Nebraska could also decide not to reopen performing venues by August. I'm going mostly by what we're experiencing in Georgia, not sure what it's like for NE.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2020 Tour Thread on: July 09, 2020, 12:56:22 PM
Right now, M&B have dates on the books taking place right after the Pinewood show. If enough of those dates get cancelled/postponed by their venues, we may likely see this date be cancelled or rescheduled as well, given the routing logistics of hauling gear and people to shows.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys 2020 Tour Thread on: July 08, 2020, 02:12:53 PM
A couple of M&B updates today...

* * * * *

July 29 -- Saint Charles, MO -- The Family Arena, with America

This show has been rescheduled to July 30, 2021.

* * * * *

Aug. 2 -- Lincoln, NE -- Pinewood Bowl Theater

This one actually scares me -- the show is going on, without America. Face masks required to attend. Wonder if the band will be wearing face shields.

What's really iconic about the Pet Sounds cover can all be found in the upper left-hand corner. It's not only the choice of Cooper Black -- it's how the blocks of text are fitted together and the use of color. It's a beautifully stacked block of text as a graphic element, imo. Gotta agree about the back side of the album -- that is kitchen-sink graphics with at least one questionable font choice.

Guitarfool, I'll keep my eyes open for other instances of fonts being identified with bands in a non-logo context.

I've always liked the design of the Sunflower album, with its generous use of white space, subtle punches of color, and seed packet motif. I'd love to see the original art for the cover, but have no idea if it even exists nowadays.
