Posted this in the General Music section but thought it would fit in here as well. It's about the new HBO documentary about Elvis Presley (watch it if you can!) and some of the vintge footage of music studios they used.




Interestingly, the studio footage they used is taken from different sources, since there's not much of Elvis' sessions. That way you can see quite a few times parts of the recently (a couple of years ago) discovered footage of the Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations" sessions.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Don't know if they had the Wilsons in mind, but who knows.

A recent episode of the TV show Impractical Jokers featured a guy wearing a Uniqlo SMiLE t-shirt. A lot of people that appear on the show, including the Jokers themselves, wear clothing featuring albums covers and whatnot, but this is the first time I've seen something Beach Boys related on the show.

This comes from the time of Brian's "autobiography". I don't remember seeing it before.

Here's also a Beach Boys mention near the end round.

Those SNL clips are apparently unavailable in the US for whatever reason.

But I remember the SNL "Larry King Live" bit with Tim Robbins doing Brian Wilson (and I think Kevin Nealon doing Larry King). Robbins certainly had some of Brian's Landy-era (late 80s/early 90s) mannerisms down. But it was certainly amplified/exaggerated for comedic effect, and if I recall correctly, while Robbins's impersonation was accurate enough, the running gag of sounds or calls startling Brian seemed pretty generic and broad and not very specific to Brian.

How tasteful the sketch is in retrospect knowing more accurately now what was going on with Brian, I guess that's open for debate.

I dislike Tim Robbins, puzzled that HeyJude didn't question what he's even doing in SNL. The guy is as funny as cutting board. Kevin Nealon is good comedian. Not sure about Larry King, that said, doesn't fit to play him. Btw, speaking of Larry King, his interviews tend to be real dullfest.
I'd like BBs impersonating each SNL cast member. It would be cool! I mean, why not do vice versa? Surely, it's within realm of possibility. It ain't impossible task.

Short notice: the cat you see to the left is the best. Not counting your indoor cat who might have habit sitting at your left side when you post at SmileySmile.

Gene Tierney is beautiful. She's talented.

I'm not an SNL expert or aficionado by any means, but as far as I can remember, Tim Robbins was not a cast member on SNL. He was doing that Brian Wilson bit because he was the guest host that particular week. Guest hosts (and even occasionally the week's musical guest) often participate in some of the sketches, especially when they're TV or film actors. 

That being said, I have no problem with Tim Robbins. He's was and is a working actor and I've liked some of the stuff he's done, which includes some vaguely comedic roles.

The Beach Boys shouldn't impersonate anybody. They've usually done an *awful* job acting in the few guest spots they've done. I'm always hearing about how some of them are funny behind the scenes in real life, and I have no reason to doubt that. But they're not actors. They've always done a sketchy job even though they're usually playing *themselves*. Sure, being placed in dumb sitcoms hasn't helped. I'm not sure it's possible to do give Olivier a run for his money in an episode of "Full House" or "Home Improvement."

But yeah, about 95% of the time I've found something a Beach Boy has done as funny, it has been seemingly unintentional. Brian Wilson in tight leather pants singing "Night Time" is funny, but he wasn't trying to be funny.
