A move that will make large amounts of people think he's an asshole? There's no way he can resist, Mke Love has a genetic imperative to play the inauguration. It's all that tainted Wilson blood!

They can sweeten the pot by mentioning free leftover hats.

Really terrific show at the Bowl! It was satisfying seeing Darian AND Billy Hinsche in the band at the end. When I saw Hinsche in the audience of BrianFest, I blurted out "you should be on stage!" He laughed politely, but it was great seeing him back on stage with the guy he opened for at the Bowl with decades ago... To a sold-out house. That has to be a tad satisfying.  

Seeing it completely full of people with stupid smiles was a delight. As was the shrimp pasta and beverages. Sure, I could have gone for another hour long set and more pasta, and maybe M. needed a lozenge but who am I to be critical?

At the Bowl now and a man just passed who was the spitting image of Mike Love. An omen? A warning?

Who cares.... Pet Sounds!

I would totally go if I wasn't already seeing The Residents that night! Sounds like a quality night out to see such a film on a big screen. A bit hallucinatory, really.

Ah aha! Didn't they buy it in 2000 or so?

I guess a lot of people attributed it incorrectly.  I'd read it that way so many times! Just a quick google turns up:

That headline at least will make buttering him up to get a vinyl reissue deal MUCH easier. I mean, this is right up there with the Melody Maker poll!

Oh I know, but being fair isn't enough, really.

Emily, you'll never get Cam Mott to agree that ML over-reached on absolutely anything, not even the timeless contribution of sleep tight/good night oh bay on WIBN. That's just not going to ever happen in this particular dimension. Would love to hear what our honored guest and Steve Love thinks before the filibustering begins!

That's what I was fearing too. "Please God, no... not that... don't be that..." (CLICK) PHEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

$25 would just get you an ebook and a coupon for a firm shove. Actual fist involvement would be the $100 tier.

I think we need more of a tease for this book! Promises of dirt won't cut it in our short attention span age. What were we talking about again?
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: \ on: December 11, 2015, 03:20:41 PM
Which begs the question, are they releasing Brianfest next? If only to catch my stupid slackjawed expression up front!

How in the world does he sound so young? 


Wheat germ, probably. Keepin' it clean.

Ok, let's get back to venom. Tut-tutting chaki is boring. We get that kinda venom all the time! Let's go for vintage venom. Rollicking Rocky reverie!



So! What did you think of Mike Love when you first met him? What about towards the end? How did he treat Brian Wilson in private?

14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Rocky Pamplin book about The Beach Boys? on: December 10, 2015, 01:05:42 PM
Brian Wilson, the ever fragile golden goose, is fleeced again and again by his rapacious first cousin, Mike Love, who later turns his poisonous venom on his younger brother and then Beach Boys manager, Stephen.

I was wondering when you'd turn up! So, any sneak peeks at what kind of venom you're talking about here.

This thread is gonna go realllly fucking weird now.
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Talk About Awards For Love and Mercy on: December 07, 2015, 09:20:08 PM
It's not about doing Transformers box office. It's about playing the game, doing the rounds, putting horse heads in critics' beds. The producers know how to do that great, just watch! They are doing more of the heavy lifting than Lionsgate.
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike's band on: December 07, 2015, 07:35:53 PM
Does that get added to The New and Revised Rules & Regulations Version 3.1 for Workgroups?

Definitely. It's going to do well.

Right, I'm gonna rush to answer your questions after you slink away from my mine. Because you KNOW your line of thought was utter nonsense. Maybe you can do a survey and find out who may have met OSD socially and make a nice powerpoint presentation out of it. You can color code it red for people who are KNOWN OSD socializers, yellow for known OSD sympathizers, orange for POSSIBLE OSD sympathizers.

(deep breath)

Ah. Better. OK, I'll leave you to your inquisition and tribunal. Have fun.
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike's band on: December 06, 2015, 11:52:17 AM
Are you now or have you ever had a drink with OSD?!!? ANSWER THE QUESTION!

This is goofy even for you, Manning. He shouldn't be banned unless he breaks any rules, and you certainly shouldn't be waving around an enemies list and accusing mods of somehow being unfair because they somehow may have exchanged words at a... gasp... Brian Wilson concert. It's kind of what happens when fans congregate. Would you think Billy's credibility was in question if he talked to AGD before or after a show? Somehow I reaaaally doubt it.

Emily's advice makes the most sense. You're sh*t-stirring. And so am I. Let's read her post again and take a deep breath, maybe?
20  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike's band on: December 06, 2015, 08:13:52 AM
Wow, what a pile-on. I can't believe you guys are painting GF as some unbalanced thin-skinned vicious control freak. If that were the case half of you would be banned from this little brouhaha. Are you? No. He's just defending himself, explaining his side, highlights what he thinks - fairly reasonably - is hypocrisy from the other side. Nobody looks very honorable here. Can you guys maybe ease off now? You've all gotten your say and taken your shots. Recycled months worth of grudges... I don't think he deserves it, he's contributed reams of text to this site and gloriously geeky and intricate recording information and production minutiae. I love reading that stuff! It's wonderful having someone with a knack for technical details and communicating decently about them to non-musos. He bends over backwards to explain his reasoning and engages with disagreements in a way I'd never fucking bother with. I'd throw my hands up and walk away. He's a good guy and you're pushing him, prodding him, trying to get him to quit. I mean, that much is obvious.

You'd feel pretty defensive too if a small group of people were badmouthing you all over the net and trying to have you replaced. Ultimately, over what? That posts making fun of Mike Love are allowed to be up? That's the great cause? To purge SB/OSD and pave the way for The Great Mike Love Q&A of 2016? C'mon, we know how that'll go. India, solo album, I haven't watched Love & Mercy yet, Beach Boys voted over Beatles in Melody Maker, etc.

Enough. Stop piling on. All the mods here have done their best dealing with all of us infantile, wisecracking, pompous jerks and rules lawyers. It's easy to make mistakes sometimes, to rub people the wrong way. We've got a lot of nice people here, but a lot of utter bastards. I know, I'm a bastard too. But Craig? He doesn't deserve this at ALL from you guys. Just load up Hickey's thing and filter out the "trolls." Done.

Filledeplage, wrong tho in the case of the BW band. Legal definitions don't enter into it. It's all rehearsals/soundchecks, VIPs are just getting access to a portion of it because not many fans want to sit around watching five versions of Our Prayer, three Runaway Dancers, 2 Don't Worry Babys, Heroes and Villains stopping and starting for half an hour, etc. If a certain song needs more work, they work on it. If it doesn't, BW will abruptly shut them down and move on to the next one. There's no difference between the earlier rehearsing and the ones watched by a paying audience. It's not a mini-concert. Even if it is a real treat to watch if you're an obsessive!

You really think Brian Wilson has the patience to sit through a real rehearsal then do a fake one, THEN do the show? Yeah, no.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson / Al Jardine / Blondie Chaplin Fall 2015 Tour Thread on: December 06, 2015, 07:15:41 AM
Sure. I'm just saying if you pay for VIP access, generally you only see a portion of the rehearsals and the actual VIPs get to watch more of it. Both are bonafide rehearsals, there's no difference. They don't suddenly stop soundchecking and actually rehearsing in favor of some mini-concert for the well-heeled. They continue rehearsing! Here's what I'm quibbling with:

" a VIP Soundcheck is an "event" where 4 or 5 songs are selected to showcase, usually connected with a VIP experience.  Generally, prior to this event is a full or expanded rehearsal.  That is the sound check.  "

I don't agree with this at all. At least for the BW band, It's ALL a soundcheck/rehearsal, not a showcase. VIPs who pay only get to watch some of it. VIPs who actually ARE VIPs or their friends are often welcome to watch the whole thing.

You don't have to tell me what a soundcheck is. I've filmed bands for almost 20 years or so, thanks.

So which banned poster with a considerable grudge is that, then? Enter and sign in, please!
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike's band on: December 06, 2015, 12:55:24 AM
Yeah, it was somebody else in that thread doing so -- it was painful to decipher! That formatting is like some terrible 1997 Internet flashback. Still, both of them have been getting more than their share of "criticism" the past few weeks and surely that's enough for now, more than enough to learn an important lesson or something?

I don't know if linking all this shittalking from a public forum is a huge breach of anything, it would've come up on another thread I'm sure. All the talk of cliques seemed ridiculous when the cliques are all a-clashin'. Probably best to lock this sh*t and walk away whistling. Either that or do that knife fight thing.

"Viggie sucks and i'm willing to fight about it!"

"HANDLERS!"
