Well, probably not to happy. So because I want to do something the laws should be bent to accommodate me? You disagree with a point and have to add name calling as well. Sad.
I only added "champ" to emphasize the point that I think you were in the minority opinion on this one, I did not mean to personally insult you.  Sorry.

As for your point of having the laws bent to accommodate you/me, I guess we have to agree to disagree with that.  I will ask, do you at least sympathize/empathize with the young lady in the article?

Don't forget to add Do A Lot with toothbrush & running water sounds, With Me Tonight with Bag of Tricks percussion, and that one song Brian destroyed in the 70s after screaming "THAT'S BETWEEN ME AND GOD"
Gosh darn it I want to hear that "Song of God" so badly...

People get denied visas all the time. I'm sure requests to meet Brian get denied all the time. Cheap political piece.
Way to be a team player champ.  How would you feel if you were in a foreign land, thought you had the chance to meet Brian Wilson, and then found out you couldn't meet him because some randos in the White House decided that you were too much of a risk to fly to California?

Strange note: This is the first time any of the GiOMH tracks or the Live at the Roxy tracks appeared on Spotify...  Just checked it out today.  It's fine I guess, for a comp.  Wish it included some deeper Brian cuts like What I Really Want for Christmas, Nothin' But Love, and basically more from NPP or Gershwin...  I like the Brian picture on the cover though and the tracks sound great.  Some Sweet Day and Run James Run are a nice bone for us fans.  Wish those Paley Sessions would get a box set...
80  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What outtake should've been included on BW Anthology instead of Some Sweet Day? on: September 20, 2017, 09:52:51 PM
Geez there is a lot of mixed reactions to the Paley material.  Frankly, I think the production is some of the best of Brian's solo career.  It's much easier to listen to than the weirdness of the GiOMH remakes.  When Soul Searchin' and You're Still a Mystery came out on Made in California, the vocals sounded too plain.  The harmonies added on Soul Searchin' as well as the added embellishments to the busy production also made the song sound a bit hokey, compared to the original boot.  It is a real privilege to hear Some Sweet Day in its original form.  The vocals aren't the greatest he's done, but they are heartfelt to me, the remade Paley vocal tracks sound robotic and without depth, it doesn't sound as spontaneous as the sessions allegedly were.  I would like to see a whole album of the original Paley stuff released some day...

Get well soon Bruce!

Hang on Brucey, Brucey, hang on!   Afro

Ehh I think 15 Big Ones is a guilty pleasure of mine, I enjoy Brian cutting loose and recording barebones covers.  But the Pet Sounds pizazz is concerning. Something to think about, remember the rumors going around, in past interviews he has hinted at the album title: Sensitive Music for Sensitive People, and Pleasure Island: A Rock and Roll Fantasy (I think).  Whether these two projects are one and the same remains to be seen.
83  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Rolling Stone: The Salvation of Brian Wilson on: September 02, 2017, 12:33:04 PM
I think Brian wasn't comfortable having Carl's vocal on Waves of Love.  That's my two cents.  Brian's getting older, so I'm not harping on his physical condition, he seems to enjoy being on the road, even with his bad back, so that's good for him.  At least he isn't horribly depressed, smoking, or overeating anymore.  At this point, that's pretty much the best case scenario here.
84  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Rolling Stone: The Salvation of Brian Wilson on: August 31, 2017, 02:12:50 PM
This Brian interview was interesting.  However, it does make me very sad that he won't be singing with Mike or Bruce or even David in the foreseeable future.  Their voices create a vocal texture that just isn't quite there with Brian's band.  I love Brian's band, saw them perform Pet Sounds last summer, but their voices don't blend as well together as the Beach Boys do.  To not hear the Beach Boys voices in any future recordings would be a heartbreaking tragedy.

It is also very sad that Brian hasn't talked to Mike in five years.  I know Mike has done some really awful things in the public eye, I'm not opening that can of worms, but it is sad to me that their kinship (being cousins and a part of the family) has collapsed.  Their situations seem like a big divorce at this point, which is always a very sad situation to be involved in.  I don't think the coinciding releases of their respective biographies doesn't help and ignites sour feelings. 

I guess as a fan, I wish they would patch things up with each other and at least be amicable,  but it doesn't look like it's going to happen now.  Once again, seeing the realization that the Beach Boys as we know them today might never record together again as a functioning unit is a heartbreaking tragedy in my world and in the musical world.   Sad
85  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Which snippet of Beach Boys music would you use for your answering machine? on: August 24, 2017, 10:02:39 PM
The ending of 'Had To Phone Ya' natch.
I use the ending of Had to Phone Ya as a ringtone!
86  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Politics: 2016 Lame Duck and 2017 New Administration on: August 18, 2017, 10:20:36 AM
So Steve Bannon has resigned as chief strategist today.  Thoughts?
87  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: COPYRIGHT IS GETTING OUT THE LINE on: August 16, 2017, 12:42:49 PM
I'd pay a fortune for a whole huge package filled with videos, live performances, interviews, and of course, songs.  Maybe also have a giant picture booklet with images throughout the band's career, everything would be presented in chronological order in accordance to year.  Perhaps some writings by the members about their perspective on life, love, and music.  Instead of the little snippets we fans get each year due to copyright laws expiring, something this big could get a lot of people interested...

The Beatles, with their gigantic posture did it, why can't America's band, loved and cherished by many, pull themselves together and do something like this?
88  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: COPYRIGHT IS GETTING OUT THE LINE on: August 15, 2017, 05:37:51 PM
This is why there needs to be an anthology set ala The Beatles, so stuff like this doesn't happen.  Truly a tragedy to Beach Boys fans.   Sad

Here is the link to The Beach Boys Full Performance & Meeting with President Reagan & Nancy from their White House Appearance on June 12, 1983
https://youtu.be/mdXGlcwUvRA  I wasn't aware the whole thing was filmed. Pretty sad to see Dennis in such awful shape.
I think Brian looks pretty sad.  Sad  Good spirited performances though.  Glad it is posted.

Loved your WIBN cover btw.
92  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Re: WIBN in an Earthbound SF2! on: July 20, 2017, 05:51:46 PM
Cave of the Past uses a sample from the very beginning of Deidre.

93  Smiley Smile Stuff / 1990's Beach Boys Albums / Re: Summer In Paradise on: July 09, 2017, 10:20:33 PM
My first question is why in the name of Beach Balls is this $24 dollars WITH $18.24 SHIPPING??? 
94  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys “Golden Medley” on Mike’s website on: July 09, 2017, 10:18:08 PM
I’ll also go ahead and mention that the version of “Alone On Christmas Day” in his website’s music player has a ~20 second longer fade than the one sold through iTunes: https://mikelove.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/01-Alone-MASTERED-2016.m4a
Alone on Christmas Day link is broken for some reason...?  The medley sounds great!  I wish Mike released an album like this!   
95  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What material we can expect from further archival releases on: July 08, 2017, 10:25:32 AM
Isint Burlesque lost as well? I heard somewhere that if it existed it would have been released by now cause it was pretty good
That would make me very sad personally.  Maybe BW can rerecord it or something...  Sad
96  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: The Beatles Survivor #10: Magical Mystery Tour on: July 07, 2017, 09:32:04 PM
Baby You're a Rich Man, compared to everything else on this album, this song sounds a bit too straightforward IMO.
97  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: What material we can expect from further archival releases on: July 07, 2017, 03:21:02 PM
I think there should be a Brian is Back box set. Including 15 Big Ones/Love You albums and sessions. As well as unreleased material from that period. As well as an official release of Adult Child. Include maybe a DVD of highlights of Brian on the road and interviews from 76-78ish. I don't know if there would be any money in something like this, but I would pay $100 for it!
Added they should throw in a restoration of Brian is Back, and some of the live performances from the era.  I would also pay $100 for it if not more...
98  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Need avdice for picking a good seat for Brian at Radio City on: July 07, 2017, 02:52:09 PM
Brian usually always sits behind a 'grand piano'.  Whatever seat you choose, you'll want to be sure the piano isn't blocking his face.  I was at the show in Michigan and the piano was to the right, so I had a bit of trouble spotting him through all the bright lights sometimes.  Good luck!
99  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: The Beatles Survivor #9: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band FINAL ROUND!!! on: June 26, 2017, 10:13:28 PM
A Day in the Life is one of the tracks that got me really interested in music in the first place, so of course it gets my vote.  It's one of the most modern sounding tracks on the album, and that last chord is sublime!  I flipped when I first heard it!
100  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Aren't You Glad (2017 Stereo Mix) up on youtube! on: June 26, 2017, 10:07:05 PM
I don't believe I've logged onto this message board in literally over ten years...

and I've come all the way back so I could find this thread and ask if anyone else is bothered that the piano in this stereo mix doesn't fade for the last measure of the intro like it does in the mono mix.

I'll post again in 2028. Be good, everyone; glad you're all well.
Please, come back whenever the urge to post arises!  It is definitely jarring that the instruments in the stereo intro don't fade out, leaving the horn and the organ to finish it off.  I liked how the horn carried on by itself, it was a good mixing choice.
