Well, Bathrobe, did you pick up copies for us?  

There sren't any bikini-clad women in Charleston, are there?  What are you doing in Charleston, W.V. on Spring Break? You should be in Florida, on the beach!!

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears, and she's already working on my brain. I only looked in her eyes, but I picked up something I just can't explain. I, I bet I know what shes like, and I can feel how right shed be for me. Its weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what shes picking up from me. I hope its good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

I was shopping at urban oufitters and found 9 copies of the 2006 Pet Sounds Vinyl reissue for sale on the sales rack. It was kinda like Pet Sounds had just come out.

They've got loads at my local one as well, over in Britain. In such esteemed company as the Iggy Pop/James Williamson reissue, Kraftwerks The Man Machine, and Is This It by The Strokes....

Haha i would  never go to charleston, WV for spring break.  Seeing all those copies of pet sounds made me think If i was a multi-millionaire i would buy as many pet sounds copies as possible, and hand out the copies of the album to as many people as possible to spread the music of such a masterpiece.

had a dream last night, because of BW's interest in Ruby Baby, my friends, a young Brian Wilson, and myself were singing Ruby Baby (the party! version) including oinks. It was interesting to say the least....I think it happend because I sing that song to myself so much. If it wasn't for Brian, I'd prolly never know that song.

Recently watched Just Go With It (generic Sandler/Aniston movie), it featured a few seconds of "Hawaii" as the main characters were landing on.. well, Hawaii. That's pretty much it. I need to get out more.

 I watched Fantastic Mr Fox and the movie had three Beach Boys songs. They were heroes and villains, i get around, and old man river. I would never expect a movie to have a deep track like old man river.

That's so awesome i would defiantly want to see that Grin, this movie has also got me hooked on Bobby Fuller as well. Too bad those music Nazis WMG won't let me listen to him on youtube.

I was just reminded the other day as I saw a picture from BB: An American Family-mini-series about a CD that was available through Cracker Barrel , a basic BB Greatest Hits comp, but it has a photo of the cast as the Beach Boys! I never did buy it, though I'm wondering if it's a "collector's item" being what I'd see as a huge mistake...I would have honestly rather have had a "soundtrack to the film," not the greatest hits stuff...just the rarities involved, but we received most of those on Hawthorne, CA, but then again, there's a lot of piano stuff that Brian recorded/"gave" for the series and some Alan Boyd work (which I'd love to hear all of and own); his Smile-esq song ("Geronimo Leaps and Bounds the Glory of the Dustbowl") and a couple other things I can't remember, did he do that "backing track/song" during the Spector scene?

I was in a Thai (I believe) restaurant recently and as we were eating I noticed -- very much to my surprise -- "I Do" by The Beach Boys playing overhead! This seemed like an extremely odd choice because, I mean, it's not exactly the sort of song that is the purview of casual fans. Really cool though, and a good song to boot! I considered asking if it was a satellite service or if someone is just a huge BBs fan, but I demurred...

Funniest time I ever heard them was a Chinese restaurant in Liverpool, England and the guy who owned the place was playing the entire greatest hits collection. He said it was summer music and The Beach Boys were good for that.  Smiley

Beach Boys and the Wizard of Oz joke
If Dennis was the soul of the band, Carl was the heart, and Brian was the brain, does that make Al and Bruce munchkins?

To add to that, would that make Mike the Wicked Witch of the West? And to that end, would that not make Bruce one of the flying monkeys? Just a thought.

Anyway, I was trying to get to sleep one night and I couldn't, the person in the room next to me was pumping out some dance music (or whatever) at some unholy volume at some ungodly hour. As the night dragged on (slowly) one generic dance track blended into the next but suddenly I hear the unmistakeable sound of the intro to Good Vibrations.

It couldn't be, I thought. The opening notes went on for longer than they should, so I didn't think that it was GV. But then Carl's vocals kick in and after his part is done it bursts into some awful techno or dance-trance-prance-etc. beat, accompanying the chorus. Carl's next set of vocals came in and repeat. An utterly terrible "remix" but it was a surprise nonetheless.

Never did get to sleep.

My neighbor's house caught on fire on today and I started to think of "Fire" from smile. Thought for a second like Brian and wondered if my Beach Boys started the fire in the first place. Then kinda watched the firefighters work while listening to the song.

Ha! Listening to BWPS 'Wind Chimes' right now and a storm has seemed to have formed outside during it's play - 'Fire' is now starting... Shocked

Sucks for your neighbor, I hope the fire wasn't too bad.

Everytime I see a fire engine wizzing by with sirens at full blast I think of a buch of firemen doing keg-stands in the fire house, getting rip-roaring drunk, and then taking the big trucks out for a joy ride.

Steve,  there is no excuse for what I said and if i knew the full details of what happened before i posted, wouldn't of posted the way I did. I'm sorry for joking in extremly bad taste and hope this doesn't cause any hard feellings for a long time. I greatly apreciated your collection when you posted it.
