[paraphrased; too lazy to get the book and find the passage] "When I woke up this morning I went over to the piano and started writing a song. I don't know why, but it gave me a hard-on. I had to go into the bathroom and masturbate."

A-ha! Here it is, page 36:

"You know, I was at the piano this morning, kind of writing a song...I don't know why, but I got a hard-on. I had to go to the bathroom and masturbate."

Saturday, June 14, 1986

I wonder what song that was.   

Nevermind.....I'd rather not know.

From an interview with John Fugelsang a few days ago

JF: Have you heard any new music that's inspired you recently?

Brian Wilson: I enjoyed 'Let It Be' by The Beatles.

Brian's always been a hilarious guy, and yeah, treads that line where people aren't sure if it's a joke or not. I love that sh*t.

Plus, not to sound like goat boy, but I'm pretty sure any Elizabeth Banks sex scene would be a highlight in any movie I saw too.

And it was...at least the post-coital glow. Grin

Another common thing we share! I too find most horrors funny - the way they die, fight, chasing scenes (cue Freddy Krueger with hilarious "village boy" sweater running like a moron with funny growling). I'm glad Brian said it like it is. There's nothing bad, after all, it's just a film as in fake death - I was told that since childhood, just as I was that Father Frost doesn't exist. We need to watch film like a film, not to get into it too much. I often imagined film shooting as this - the director cuts the final scene - "Stop camera!" - & everyone just relax & go to banquet to see the result. No doubt they laughed during killing 'n' stuff. Brian is mighty cool. 3D

I was watching The Exorcist with a friend who hadn't seen it the other day, and when Pazuzu (sp?) the demon possessing Linda Blair spews his profanities, I laughed out loud.

At the Love & Mercy screening at the Arclight in Hollywood the other day, there was a great bit that went something like (this is my best guess):

Q: What was it like seeing your story told on screen?

Brian: Well, I couldn't really see it as myself, so I just tried to imagine that I was Paul Dano and watched the movie while thinking what it must have been like for Paul Dano.

(If anyone has a better recall, I'd love to read it!)

Las Vegas Review-Journal (Dave Herrera): I understand you’ve been traveling. How’s the trip so far?

Brian: The trip so far’s been a little hectic. The concerts have been going over very good, very well. I’ve had a good time. We’ve had good meals — good catering and meals....


We got “California Girls” from Bach. Bach is responsible for “California Girls.”

Q. What is your favorite movie?
Brian: The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock because it had a sense of humor. Some guys car blew up and he got killed and it made me laugh for some reason running from the birds.

Not just that, his doll face is very funny. It's kind of a black comedy. There are some jumpy moments but nothing too extreme. I can see why the genre qualified as "horror", tho.

Judging by Brian's quote on The Birds, I think Brian would get a kick out of the Sharknado movies, and other silly B movies produced by The Asylum for the SyFy Channel.

Well Brian DID like silly "B" movie "Norbit". I mean the casting might be top class but the movie itself isn't high art.
Never watched "Sharknado". Will take it for note.

I think the difference between Norbit and Sharknado was that the Sharknado movies, and others produced by The Asylum, are bad on purpose.  They're deliberately silly and over the top, usually starring washed up actors and filled with cameos.  The producers definitely have their tongues firmly planted in their cheeks.

Understood - however, admit that "Norbit" isn't serious Oscar-worthy film. It's a trash.

I've never complimented Norbit, and never will.  That movie will never steal 90 minutes of my life.

I didn't watch it. I'm up for watching silly movies with corny jokes & even find them entertaining. Depends on the story & score/soundtrack. "Norbit" seems bad by my standards.

Norbit was in fact nominated for an Oscar.

It was in make-up, but still, someone considered it Oscar-worthy.  LOL

I know this thread has been dead for a while but if any one them deserves to brought back to life... this must be the one.

"We're all chemistry. We're made of chemistry".

..."my semi-addiction to drugs"

Mike Douglas Show, 1976

"It's the way [Carnie] was brought up. She'd come into our room and see us doing things, in bed. We never hid anything from her. So – it just goes to prove – that – if you don't hide anything from kids, they'll start doing things they normally wouldn't do until much later. At an early age. Like, three or four years old."
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/beach-boys-a-california-saga-19711028#ixzz42YVWXNzV

+ I generally like how he always explains everything twice (but not everything, of course), but in a slightly different manner, like that chemistry quote. Some other examples:

"[...] and be aware of the love in those songs that is able to give the listener the feeling of being love, which is something we kinda like to do. We like to give our love."
- Pet Sounds album liner notes, Pet Sounds box set, 1996

"I think God gave me my music and my talent. I’m trying to get across a feeling of spirituality; I think I have a spiritual influence on people."
(unknown source)

"It’s taken very well by me and I appreciate the very thought of being able to entertain and write songs for people; it turns me on, personally. I feel turned on by it, I can’t help it. I can’t help myself."
(unknown source, 1988)


Brian has often been said to have a big heart and a big soul, but he also has such a great mind. He can say a lot of funny BS when he wants to or when he's uninterested, but I sometimes have the feeling that he's joshing with people just because he's so far ahead.

"When Pet Sounds was released in 1966, 'We didn't play it on stage,' Wilson says, describing the record as, 'an album that started out with 'Wouldn't It Be Nice' and just went from there.'"

Do you have any clue what is "trailer"? Let me tell you - it is short preview for a movie. People see it to decide if they're going to watch the film or pass. Most trailers don't give away the main plot. Hence it doesn't count as "watching". I didn't watch "Norbit" in full but going by the trailer, it was absolutely clear that I would not like the film.
This is mind-boggling, reminds me of some multi-lingual tourists who called me "polyglot" when I greeted them each in their languages - precisely, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, German & yes, French.

A Russian lecturing me on English comprehension. Hilarious.

A trailer is composed of short sections of the movie it's promoting (usually the very best parts), ergo you are watching part of the film.
