That is (kinda) the truth.

Let's just set this out for all to see. I apologize if I get anything wrong.

Jon and John ended The Smile Shop. I'm pretty sure they were gonna maybe bring it back in another form, but I suppose that never happened.

Chuck L. and others were sad to see The Smile Shop forum die, so he basically took it over and renamed it Smiley Smile (thus what we have today).

So naturally, John, Jon, Ian, blah blah blah, were upset cuz they felt Chuck co-opted The Smile Shop. But they still stuck around somewhat.

Then there was the Professor (apparently not the same Van Dyke Parksian "professor" who graces us today. And the professor did some things that would be considered inappropriate to a lady on the board. I will leave her name out. And Chuck apparently took dudes side or something, and then apparently the same chick said Chuck was being inappropriate to her. Was he? Well that's up to you to decide folks.

So that led the quote "final" blowout, and some really decent posters left for TRR. I honestly think those involved wanted any excuse to leave this place anyways, and this definitely gave them room to. But whatever, just my opinion.  But I recall Ian around here because I think he secretly loves the place, despite his protestations.

So along the way, some other decent folks would always have a hearty laugh over at TRR because they think we here at SS are stupid BB obsessed assholes. But whatever. There's still some good convo over there, so I occasionally post there now too. And let's be honest, if anybody is posting at either "the rocking beach boys room" or "smiley smile" and could tell you the name of track 7 on KTSA, chances are they are obsessed. Most of the people on both boards are generally nice people (even you Ian), and we should just all get along.

Any questions??



A bit jumbled. The Professor incident (which I, of course, hastened) ended the original BB-centered Smile Shop. The site was closed then for reopening at a later date, with a non-BB centered focus, which it did. In the meantime, Chuck started this place, against the wishes of Jon and John. A lion's share of the major posters stayed away until the Jo(h)ns gave their blessing. Then Smiley and Smile Shop coexisted until the Chuck photoshop/PM reading incident, which hastened a large walkout from this board (hastened by me). Smile Shop ended after a big incident between the proprietors and a certain poster (guess who?). Then the Record Room was started.
But generally, you got it.

I figured I messed it up somewhat. But yeah. There you go. And now I have 3 (?) posts in a row. Pathetic.

Whatever happened to the guy who used to post "What you talkin' bout Willis?" on one of the old-old Smile boards and had Gary Coleman as his avatar? This was even before there was a private message function and posting your email address was the option. I think he got banned - maybe someone has a list somewhere. My memory is hazy before 2002 because before that I only used work computers and they monitored online use... Grin

Speaking of Chucks, whatever happened to that photo of the Chuck Taylor sneakers with the Smile imagery on them that used to be on one of those older boards? That would be a neat pair of kicks to wear to the BBs concerts, with a paisley shirt of course.

Still no leak, not a trace..

For those getting impatient  Razz

If you've listened to everything available through legitimate perfectly legal channels (samples. radio, youtube), then you have already heard about 83% of the album. I don't know how much suspense could be left after that.

There is the part I don't understand - why bother with an "official" release date if so much of the music is available for preview, and hundreds of various music journalists from the Podunk Gazette up to Spin magazine have it...where is the suspense?

I still can't wait to go to the store and buy a new Beach Boys album featuring Brian in my lifetime...that will be as awesome as actually buying two "official" Smile releases over the counter. Things once thought impossible.

But there is always someone out there who remembers, though...and there are usually two sides to every story, or two stories to every side, or every picture tells a story, etc... Cheesy

Enough of the 83% BS... You haven't heard an album until you have liner notes at hand and can play it from A to B with no interruptions.

i actually don't like reading lyrics when i listen to an album the first time.  I think it distracts, same with music videos

It's not BS. You've heard 83% of the album. No one here has said "I've heard 83% of the album in clip form, thus I've heard the album," or anything ridiculous like that.

Liner notes, cover artwork etc. also imposes strongly upon your initial impression of the album too. Sometimes it's nicer to let your brain decide what color this song is or what that song makes you think of instead of an artist giving detailed imagery, lyrics, music videos, and sh*t like, "This song is about..." Those things have their place, don't get me wrong, but sometimes it's nice to enjoy those things after the songs have become your own.

No need to fault people for their listening preferences. If they want to listen to clips, cool. If they want to wait (what if you die while waiting? :O ), cool .

There's a very detailed thread in the Sandbox (use search function key word: exodus to find it) that will eliminate any further discussion regarding the "incident".

Let me put it this way. There have been lots of times when I knew what I was getting for Christmas well beforehand, but I still eagerly awaited the day when I could wake up early, tear off the Santa Claus gift wrap and start enjoying my presents. That's pretty much  how I feel about the new Beach Boys album. I don't expect a lot of surprises and I feel like I pretty much know what to expect because of what's already out there on the internet. However, I still VERY much look forward to June 5, when I can bask in the glory of holding a new Beach Boys CD in my hands, and to be able to listen in superior sound quality with no rough edits. For those of you with the willpower to have resisted listening to all the preview clips, you will be delighted come Christmas morning.

I'll definitely give every chance to say maybe you have forgotten over time as it was 6-7 years ago, but this statement isn't true.

Maybe I was timed out for one or two days, but not banned. I mean, geez, I was a moderator on this board for a while even.

Interesting thing in old interview!

Don't know if its been mentioned here before but in 2009, late august, Brian said that the week before he wrote a new song called
"The Private Life of Bill and Sue" !

Ian, if you go back onto what is left of the board meltdown on this board, Jon makes reference to you getting banned.  Might have only been for a day as a timeout, but that's what they are talking about.  Someone went back and read the accounts and is saying that the part after you were banned is boring.

And for everyone else, I think Ian means that "banning" is more permanent than a day or two.  Like how Sebastian got banned from the Record Room.
