And when Banks confronts Landy who was ranting and raving outside the office door, all full of insults and bravado and his pseudo-machismo testosterone-fueled bullying trip...it was *that* scene that I think generated one of the bigger audience reactions both at the shows I saw and from other reports from viewers. Banks strikes the perfect pose and shoots the perfect look at the doctor as she swings open the door. It's not overblown, it's not overacted, it's not getting into "Mommie Dearest" territory...

Rather, it's the perfect, even understated to a degree, facial and body expression of the words "Checkmate, you asshole."


Of course Melinda (Banks) could do that - she had just heard her nemesis (Landy) get served!  Talk about perfect timing and cause & effect.

In the end credits of L&M I saw something go by called 'FUN, FUN, FUN Dance Sequence', followed by some names.  WHAT (F,F,F) dance sequence?

a figurative observation to be sure, though with a literal sound (to me)  if delivered casually.

using the expression "straight as a die"  by the screenwriter (or perhaps director) was a perceptive choice, no doubt part of Murry's tool-and-die background vocabulary

I like the lines they gave Melinda, both "well at least the master door lock-out is working" and "well at least the loudspeaker is working" (pardon me if my quotes are just close enough)

Melinda remarks near the end "people say he's passive (Brian), but he's not he's strong"

at the moment she says 'passive' Brian sitting next to her closes his eyes

there's the following line heard in LOVE & MERCY:

"yeah.....who's going to fold our clothes?"

it's at the very ending of the scene where (younger) Brian insists he cannot tour and needs to stay home and in the studio to produce music.  as Dennis & Carl walk away one says they can't imagine Brian not coming along with their tour of Japan.  the above quote finishes the exchange.

I'm not certain exactly who says that line about the clothes (it doesn't matter) and no doubt it's said in jest, but WHATEVER COULD THEY HAVE MEANT BY THAT WISECRACK?!

BTW the film's still playing at 5 different theatres in my vicinity, and the one I attended last Friday (my 3rd viewing) with my son had by far the largest audience (go figure).  from what I saw L&M was received quite well everywhere

yes my sweet insanity CD has gotten a lot of spins in my car of late and i've come to the conclusion THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH IT, IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN RELEASED.  darker forces were afoot back then.  bob dylan sounds cartoonish though
207  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Dennis Wilson Questions on: October 22, 2014, 02:18:04 PM
how's that?
208  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Annette talks about \ on: October 22, 2014, 02:16:59 PM
it's watching the fabulous Fendertones performance of The Monkey's Uncle that continues to remind me of the old Annette/Beach Boys track.  the Fendertones certainly wouldn't have bothered with it had it not originally contained a major Beach Boys component

i seem to recall some Brian interview from the late '60s where he states a desire to produce an Annette album!!!!!  that's Brian to a 'T'.  think of the (lost) possibilities
209  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Dennis Wilson Questions on: October 22, 2014, 02:09:18 PM
the Harmony long gone.  OK.  what I had heard then was the day dear Dennis drowned was the final day under his ownership title
210  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Annette talks about \ on: October 22, 2014, 01:43:37 PM
why hasn't The Monkey's Uncle ever been released on a Beach Boys CD?  It's a sin.  I have to think they've scraped the bottom of the barrel (pun elective) for obscure & unreleased old BB tracks on all the modern day CD compilations, yet this one tune isn't even (apparently) on the horizon as such.  Why not, just because it's an Annette record?  Everybody knows there's just as much Brian heard singing as there is our favorite and puppy-loved late Mouseketeer, not to mention a fine Carl Wilson lead guitar solo.  If Dennis didn't play drums on certain Beach Boys studio recordings he certainly did on this one.  Brian has had a couple recent solo CD's with the Disney organization, certainly he could leverage a licensing of this one almost forgotten song to Capitol

somewhere i'd read dear dennis hit his head coming up for air on the underside of the Harmony

bad grammar -

"when you send us in your letter"

s/b

"when you send in us your letter"

how i've heard it and understand it makes sense:

"then, mama's baby--they'll have seen the last of me"
214  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Best (sheet) Music Book? on: May 21, 2014, 01:05:22 PM
there's a little black songbook series (on a number of artsits) of song guitar chords, here's a link to the one on The Beach Boys w/ 90 titles:

215  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Best (sheet) Music Book? on: April 22, 2014, 02:32:58 PM
i agree the best overall music book is the sunflower/surfs up one.  i play piano and like playing their arrangements of at my window, our sweet love, a day in the life of a tree, cool cool water etc.  besides that book its hard to recommend anything more than the odd song here and there from all the other books including the old songbooks from the '60s.  but the music book that covers 15 big ones / love you did teach me had to phone 'ya & i wanna pick you up & airplane fairly well.  in one of the big comprehensive songbooks there's a very good arrangement of when i grow up to be a man, and in another book let's go away for awhile & warmth of the sun are worthwhile.  again i'm speaking entirely from a piano playing standpoint.  i learned darlin' from the original stack-o-tracks L.P.  printed music insert.  lastly the sheet music for good timing will prove very helpful
216  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Radiant Radish Photos on: April 21, 2014, 12:41:15 PM
i used to have a page from the yellow pages telephone book from that area and those years, which i remember had a Radiant Radish display ad printed in it.  it contained a small charicature graphic
217  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Surf's Up lyrics - assist on: July 29, 2012, 02:31:33 PM
i disagree -

lyric resonse as stated earlier:

"A BLIND...."

becomes

"BLIND A"

and "A DIAMOND NECK LESS PLAYED UPON"  just as well
218  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Surf's Up lyrics - assist on: July 27, 2012, 11:57:09 AM
what i posted earlier is perfectly correct
219  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Surf's Up lyrics - assist on: July 27, 2012, 06:29:20 AM
no , the SU vocal response at the end of initial verses is

"BLIND A, BLIND A"

it's a typical VD Parks style punnish response,
reversing the words of the first verse.

that is, "A BLIND..."  becomes "BLIND A".  (in either case A is of course short vowel)

BTW in similar VDP manner the first verse line can  be reworded
from "A DIAMOND NECKLACE PLAYED UPON"
to "A DIAMOND NECK LESS PLAYED UPON"
