I wish they included "Headphones" and "Deep End"...

The theater I work at is losing it tomorrow. I happen to have tomorrow off. I will be catching the final showing at 4pm (my fourth time), then sticking around for the premiere of "Minions" later in the evening.

And I should be getting the display poster on Friday!   Afro

I have a feeling, and hope, that the "One Kind of Love" music video will be a bonus feature...
29  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / SMiLE fanmix that comes closest to BWPS using only 1966/67 tracks on: June 08, 2015, 11:22:49 AM
Among the damaged discs in the flood were several CD-Rs that are rendered unreadable. Many of them I don't care about, but there was one SMiLE fanmix that I have been unable to relocate. It was nearly identical to BWPS in terms of flow but used only the original tracks. I'm unsure whose fanmix this was, or if it was a combination of a few that someone else put up. I would love to replace it if possible, as it was my go-to SMiLE disc and unfortunately I hadn't ripped it to my iPod or anything before it was damaged.

So I guess what I'm asking is for y'all to post your favorite BWPS-style fanmixes so I can try to replace it or at the very least make my own recreation of that mix.

For 2008 the answer is simple - they had a drummer who could keep time and a new MD. For 2004, it's even simpler - Brian's BWPS tours delivered a metaphorical kick up the arse. I saw them in 2003, granted in a torrential downpour, and both performance and setlist alike were, to be polite, pedestrian. Just over a year later, they blew me away.

I have to agree with various others here, in that I cannot fathom why Mike & Bruce performing a three hour 60 song setlist is somehow worthy of censure, or at best extremely grudging and lukewarm praise. I was speaking with several people last night post show (band members and other fans) and they all voiced negative opinions of this board, and frankly right now I cannot blame them at all. A handful of posters are making this an increasingly dismal place to be. There's a cancer here that needs to be excised.

I stopped posting regularly years ago because of all the bullcrap that goes on. I still read the board every day. Or should I say I scroll more than I read because most of what is posted is useless back and forth bickering about this or that.

Seriously people. The Beach Boys are in their early to mid 70s. They aren't going to be around (or at least performing) much longer. The fact that the touring band is doing a killer 3 hour, nearly 60 song set, is nothing short of amazing.
31  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Creating the ultimate Beach Boys mix-tape (playlist) on: May 29, 2015, 06:41:58 AM
I've been using the following CD-R (now iTunes playlist) to give to people who are just starting out with our boys. It is very similar to their setlists circa 1994-1996, and has gotten a great response from everyone I've given it to. It may be too "Sounds of Summer" or focused too much on the hits (the most rare song is Sail On Sailor), but it works fantastic and has a great flow. One of my "go to" playlists for cruising around in the car.

California Girls
Do It Again
Catch a Wave
Hawaii
Little Honda
Surfer Girl
Darlin'
Come Go With Me
Do You Wanna Dance
Dance Dance Dance
Rock and Roll Music
In My Room
Be True to Your School
Little Deuce Coupe
409
Shut Down
I Get Around
Don't Worry Baby
California Dreamin
Sail On Sailor
Sloop John B
Wouldn't It Be Nice
God Only Knows
Good Vibrations
Kokomo
All Summer Long
Help Me Rhonda
Barbara Ann
Fun Fun Fun
Surfin Safari
Surf City (Jan & Dean, BW's first #1 song)
Surfin USA

If you want to dive a little bit deeper, I suggest a playlist based on the RAH C50 date. 61 songs, some great deep cuts, but nothing too "out there" for most.  The current M&B UK tour setlists are phenomenal as well, I need to make a playlist based off that this weekend!
32  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Love and Mercy - News and Reviews - First clip is out. on: May 26, 2015, 11:34:21 AM
How can I find out where this playing near me?

Having worked for two different theater chains now, I can tell you that our bookings are not finalized until about a week in advance. Many times we won't know for sure what will be playing on a new release Friday until the Monday or Tuesday before. Call or visit your theaters website on June 2nd and hopefully it will be playing...
33  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Lost most of my CD collection to flooding on: April 09, 2015, 09:12:32 PM
The MUSIC (ie what is ultimately most important) is recoverable and/or replaceable for the most part. Guess I'll be ripping CDs all weekend while not working at the theater...

The booklets, cases, and a handful of autographs... that's the killer... along with the sentimental value and being able to look at a nice collection.

It could be worse... one of my neighbors lost an old box spring and mattress set along with an antique dresser and mirror.  And I saw on the news that lightning hit two separate houses in the area, leaving both houses completely destroyed.

And there are fine young men and women overseas risking their lives for our sake. Some paying the ultimate sacrifice.

I guess it's all about perspective, but man this sucks.

34  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Lost most of my CD collection to flooding on: April 09, 2015, 07:50:21 PM
I am beyond devastated right now.  The basement in my apartment complex flooded.  Thankfully most of my boxes are off the ground by 3 inches on pallets or shelves, but wouldn't you know it... the box containing a good chunk of my CD collection happened to be on the floor.

In total, 85 discs have damaged booklets and/or cases.  Some extremely rare like the Carl Wilson Japanese CDs (and the Long Promised Road reissue), the BW Do It Again single, the "Walking Down the Path of Life" single... ugh.

I could replace some of the more common items if I had gainful employment and disposable income, but I have been on minimum wage since August.

Heartbroken doesn't begin to describe it...   Cry

Sorry guys, just had to vent.

In Part 4, at 2:18... did they blur out Jeff's face?  Undecided

They also blur out Maryann Jardine at 2:23.  My guess is they didn't sign disclosure agreements/release forms or something... standard practice, even though it is unfortunate for us as fans.
36  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: No Pier Pressure (board member reviews) on: April 07, 2015, 10:00:47 AM
Everything on "Our Special Love" is a capella. No programmed drums or bass or whatever people claim to be hearing. Been a fan of Peter Hollens since first hearing he would be collaborating with Brian. Check out his YouTube page. The guy is incredible.
37  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Guess we know where us US members are buying our copies of NO PIER PRESSURE on: April 07, 2015, 08:56:50 AM
My Target had a whole stack of them on the end cap of the music department along with other new and recent releases.   Of course, there is one less copy there now...
38  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Guess we know where us US members are buying our copies of NO PIER PRESSURE on: April 06, 2015, 02:21:55 PM
Oh I knew I wouldn't get lucky, I just posted the information because a few others were wondering if Target would break street date and have it early. I figured I was there anyway, and thought I would report in is all.   Cool
39  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Guess we know where us US members are buying our copies of NO PIER PRESSURE on: April 06, 2015, 08:04:00 AM
Stopped by my local Target to get some discounted Easter candy, and they didn't have the album out yet.  Guess I'll be going back tomorrow (after listening to my iTunes download, of course)
40  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: An Alternate View Of No Pier Pressure on: April 04, 2015, 08:46:10 PM
As if I wasn't pumped for the album enough already... 

Is it Tuesday yet?!?
41  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: No Pier Pressure Links on: March 27, 2015, 02:22:15 PM
FFS, I've been earning nothing but minimum wage since the end of August and even I saved enough to purchase the album. Just buy the damn thing dude...
42  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson & Friends \ on: March 27, 2015, 10:24:40 AM
Just reserved my copy... or gave them my info with the ZIP Code of 16... 
43  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Runaway Dancer available for purchase on itunes on: March 16, 2015, 10:28:31 PM
Wow... I dig it! 
44  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: New Brian Wilson song just premiered on radio on: February 17, 2015, 07:45:08 AM
"The Right Time" is now available when you pre-order on iTunes (and I think on Amazon as well).  Man, I cannot wait for the rest of the album!
45  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - \ on: October 29, 2014, 05:15:49 PM
I still can't get enough of this track.  Sure, parts are way too much 90s R&B/Boy Band/N*Sync/Boyz II Men/All 4 One sounding but damn if I don't love it regardless.  And it is simply astonishing that it is all a capella.
46  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - \ on: October 26, 2014, 08:29:32 AM
All I have to say after hearing this track (thanks Shady!) is BRING ON "NO PIER PRESSURE"!!  Holy cow, Brian sounds amazing. On first listen I hear a lot of similarities to "The Like In I Love You" from the Gershwin project, as well as the aforementioned similarity to "Spring Vacation".  Still, I quite like it.
47  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Anyone know who the faces in the bushes and clouds are on the cover of Friends? on: October 22, 2014, 10:46:58 AM
Bottom left = Paul McCartney
Bottom right = Weird Al Yankovic    Grin

Left clouds = Brian Wilson, Hillary Clinton, Dennis Wilson, Mozart
Right clouds =moustached sunglasses dude, Al Jardine, Carl Wilson

48  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Imagination album vocals on: September 25, 2014, 05:46:00 AM
I would love to see BW re-record "Dream Angel" as a lullabye. I don't have a daughter, but I imagine if I did that would be one song I'd sing to her at night.
49  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Love and Mercy At The Toronto Film Festival on: September 09, 2014, 06:44:17 PM
Thank you for that wonderful insight, Ray. God bless.
50  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike and Bruce Tour 2014 on: August 19, 2014, 09:03:52 PM
I like Ambah's take on "Darlin", but it's a little weird hearing her sing "I was livin like half a man..." LOL
