No numbers?

P.S. I hate you.

I'll never listen to Roll Plymouth Rock without thinking "Rock rock roll, Plymouth rock comb-over" again.

I could have modified it and added the number, but then that would have invalidated later posts, and I'm really against that ethically.

Isn't PS I hate You a Beatles track?

Sorry I've spoilt Worms for you.

36 The world will not end Saturday as scheduled. God said she wants to hear SMiLE first, during taping of her last show.

35. Brian Wilson, upon hearing the news of mankinds imminent demise on May 21, 2011, promptly posted the mastertapes of SMiLE to Hell, so those lucky enough to have lived a sinful life can have some small comfort.
He also got another tapebox, labelled it 'SMILE MASTER 02/01/67', inserted the Sweet Insanity mastertape, and sent it to Heaven to teach the evangelicals that gloating is never an attractive quality  Grin

34 Further more, we now have a link to the non event that was the world ending last weekend and the dropping of
     temperture in Hell. It seems SMiLE-ologists had misinterprited Brian. It was thought he meant the
     world would end before SMiLE was released when in fact he said Hell would freeze over!

33. In May 1967 Brian set about writing more songs for SMiLE, 3 of the 11 new songs included "I'll Bet He's Nice", "Let Us Go On This Way" and "Solar System", distraught upon hearing the Minimoog had yet to be invented Brian had a meltdown and shelved the whole project.

When the boxset is released..

32  ...there will be negative comments.

31  ...many will say 'well SMiLE would have been better understood in 1967'.

30  ...some will argue the track list is wrong.

29  ...posters on this site won't give a damn about numbers 30, 31 or 32!

28) We are all part of a Matrix style computer simulation, entitled 'What would the world be like if SMiLE had never been released in 1967'

27] Brian wasn't crazy when he thought the Fire tapes were starting fires in the area near the studio, when the tracks are mixed in the correct way on the box set, it's going to mark the begging of the end of the world, the planet is going to become engulfed in flames, and as a result, nobody will make it to the end of the SMiLE set, thus realizing that..

26] The SMiLE album we know was a fake, Brian kept this hoax going all this time, even releasing a re-recording of the fake album in 2004, the 2 L.Ps in the deluxe edition are going to contain the real SMiLE album.. for the reason mentioned in number 27, nobody will get to hear it.

24) It has been said Brian invented digital recording 25 years before the time during the SMiLE sessions. Other things include....

  • The Pet Shop Boys (originally as a avantgarde side project for Al & Carl)
  • Grunge
  • the original script for 'Total Recall'
  • The basslines for every single Human League hit

23) After freaking out about the 'Fire' music starting fires in LA, Brian at first abandons the idea of a suite about the Elements but then comes up with an alternative plan.

As Capitol expects Elements themed music as part of SMiLE, Brian decides to cover Tom Lehrer's 'Elements' song -after all who's not to know it was about chemistry rather than earth, fire, air and water.

This is Lehrer's version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYW50F42ss8

In an apparently conciliatory gesture after his criticism about the project Brian asks Mike Love to do the lead vocal. The track is recorded but the session does not go well as Mike struggles with the tempo of the song. The tape is then wiped (although an acetate still exists in Brian's tape library) and is completely forgotten about. It is rumoured that Brian is often heard listening to a 'weird' version of this song in his music room whilst occasionally erupting into gulfs of hysterical laughter.

Sometime in the 1970's, Brian asks Mike to sing  'The Battle Hymn of the Republic'......Revenge is a dish best served cold they say.

22 Amazon announces SS's sales pitch and makes reference of 'spend your grocery money this Labor Day weekend'. Price $300. Why does this sound
     familiar? Huh

It has been revealed that Al Jardine has been posting on the Hoffman board under the pseudanym "Leila" (he's a big Clapton fan apparently)

The listening party was real, and Al, being the one who first leaked news of the set, wanted to be the one to spill the beans on the content.

The two friends are real as well, "B" is of course our favourite, shorts sporting Johnny Come Lately Bruce Johnson, and S is, well..........................

STAMOS!!!!!

19)

In an odd twist of fate the January 1967 version of Heroes & Villians has become twinned over the space/time continuum  with a long forgotten 2011 thread from the Smiley Smile Message Board. If the '101 things you didn't know about SMiLE' thread is completed, it will enable Brian to complete Heroes & Villians back in Jan 67, leading to the completion of Smile,

The Smiley Smile board will immediately cease to exist, as the Smiley Smile album never existed. As the  '101 things you never knew about SMiLE' thread also ceases to exist it means Brian cannot complete H&V.

The Smiley Smile board pops back into existence, unfortunately AGD returns with it.

Actually sounds like an episode of 'Life On Mars'. DCI Gene Hunt probably listened to that version on a 8 track in the Ford Cortina!

Anyway....
18) Any message board thread related to SMiLE automatically has a life span of 37 years.
