Why, Charlie of course. Nobody was, is... well, nobody.

So I really relaly got into the Beatles when i was 14. I'm 24 now for the record. i dismissed the Beach boys as lame surf merda because I was brainwashed by the Beatles. And I do still think the Beatles are the best BAND ever, and I know all their merda and trivia and I listen to them in mono exclusively. I never liked Sgt. Pepper that much til I heard it in Mono, at which point I totally got it. Aside from that, I believe that The Who are the greatest Rock & Rollers ever, and I enjoy Pete Townsend for being a totally insane creative genius. My favorite contemporary band is the Flaming Lips. Naturallya s i got into them I realized their influences were mainly The Who and The Beach Boys. I heard talk of Pet Sounds tossed about a lot in album discussions. Finally I decided to listen to Pet Sounds. I was incredibly high, because I wanted to ensure as close as an experience to the original as possible.

Quite simply it blew my mind. Here was an album better than any single Beatles album, from that dumb surf band I'd dismissed as the Beatle's inferiors.

I got curious and did some research and learned mroe baout thsi SMiLE thing i'd only heard mentioned in passing. Madness. I saw it had been "completed" and that the completion had recieved well so I checked it out.

It also blew my mind. The sheer perfection, the hundreds of little,. perfect melodies woven together and overflowing, the lyrical callbacks and thematic cohesion, the inventiveness of iot all blew me away. I decided I had entirely been unfair to this group.

My researches brought me here, and i've been lurking for a couple months, relaly impressed with the comprehensiveness of the posts and knowledge contained. I saw a crazy thread abotu love You and being into crazy merda, I checked that it. It's my 2nd favorite Beach boys albums, and i've been thoroughly itno the rest as well. I'm a musician, i specialize in the ukulele, and in learning beahc boys and brian songs I've discovered a lot about the way he writes, which adds an aditional level of complexity I can draw on as  asongwriter. The dense chords he works in sound perfectly clear on a ukulele, there's no muddle, it's all very concise but sounds so great. I think one of the reasons I love Love You so much is the sparse instrumentation let's you really hear the subtlety in his chord progressions and really just focus on the most basic, perfect element of the song. it's an unplugged sensibility run through a computer. it's amazing.

I've really immersed myself in tio increidbly for 2 months, and a glance at my last.fm account would indicate unhealthy obsession, but I can't believe the wealth of music I've discovered.

And the line someone posted here about Love You begin "Mozart on coke in a bathrobe with birthday cake in his beard" is pretty much the most exciting description of a mad genius I can imagine.

Time will tell if you are or aren't Nobody (he seems to unwittingly post himself into oblivion after several days) but regardless - welcome to you and thanks for sharing your story. Always great to hear about the moment that the BB obsession takes hold and cool to have the more psychedelic perspective too.

Manson is unreal. Still I think he's not as crazy as he likes people to think he is. In other words he's a great comedian. A sick bastard but he is an entertainer right?

He was too smart and calculating to be completely crazy, so I think he falls firmly into sick, evil bastard category. He clearly had/has a knack for appealing to misguided losers. Just look at Susan Atkins.

Well - smart, calculating, manipulative, full of lust and desire, and a complete lack of conscience. I doubt whether 'crazy' is a fitting word. I'd reserve that for people who see pink elephants all of the time, or who buy Kenny G. records.

Thanks. I would ask who Nobody is but I can tell I'd get some kind of pun for an answer.

Nobody was, and indeed still is, a troll and a f*ckwit, because he made supremely dumbass posts.

If you wish to know who Nobody is check out some of the posts in the sandbox from around a year ago by him. He then came back under the name socoldigoburr about a month ago and managed to piss off AGD on roughly an hourly basis.

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.
