Please tell me what those things are--because I just get a federal government 'we ban this!' sign.  (that is, until I go home, and I can see it--but not post (because of cookie problems).  So, with my knowledge from home, I can post on here the next day.  All clear?  

When I see 'Tim' I think of the Replacements, Kaycee.  Good album!  'Bring your own lampshade, somewhere there's a party, here it's never ending, can't remember when it started. Pass around the lampshade there'll be plenty of room in jail.  If being wrongs' a crime, then I'm guilty forever, being strong is what you want, but I need help here with this feather.  If being afraid is a crime, we'll hang side by side.  In this 'Swinging Party' down the line... Pound the prairie pavement, it's a losin' proposition, going to work, quittin school, and never goin fishing, water all around, but they'll never let us learn to swim now..."     hey...where did the happy people go to brighten up THOSE words??  In a perfect world, Paul Westerberg would by a lyricist for Brian...

  Do you know, they used to perform "Help me, Rhonda" over and over again sometimes live?

Sorry...forgot you can't see utube...very cool song...great lyrics..I vaguely remember them though. I have a friend (kindred spirit) named Paul which I was very close with at that time  and used to play them occasionally(when he was in a mellow mood)... and it is amazing to think of how many artists have been influenced by Brian and the BB's. I would not even have a clue how many THAT would be, but would be a cool thing to see! [eek] and if you allow the cookie, you will be much happier![comp][thumb]

Now I can see the Brian video...and it really is an exceedingly ordinary/orthodox song for him, innit?  Some of the Brian & Andy songs are like that.  

Once I saw the Beach Boys in the late 80's I think.  It would have been the last time I saw the group with that name--inside, and was at the Universal Ampatheater.  Brian wore glasses that night and introduced a song I never heard before or since called "The Boogie's Back in Town."  He said something in his introduction like 'for 30, 40 years, I've always loved the boogie woogie, so I wrote this song.'   it was so ordinary, one might suspect prankster Brian just made it up backstage and was making fun of the staid and conservative 'Boys live shows...

It had a chorus that went,

'...the boogie, the boogie, the boogie's back in town...' (ta-da-DAAAA).

I found a live recording of that song on Ut! Maybe it was the show that you were at? This guy Tim K has alot of great things on UT. He has some stuff recorded with Brian and some friends in a hotel playing songs and singing together. Even though I collect, I just love that kind of stuff! I love an artist when they are uninhibited (and sometimes inebriated...let's be real, cough, cough)...talk about FREEDOM! With that comes real happiness! I went on Discogs yesterday and found a rare misprint that I may get. It is a release by "Trip" records in 1963. The label says "Surfin'" but plays "Surfin USA". The B side is labeled "Surfing Safari" and plays "Surfin' Safari". To add insult to injury, they re-released the incorrect labels again in 1970 with a different color label! Omg...[rolleyes] Could you imagine getting THAT in 1963 new from the record store! Ugh!
I am really liking that song "Gettin' in over my head". It is "growing" on me. It is funny how sometimes your brain interprets music differently the more you listen. When I first heard songs from "Pet Sounds" it reminded me of the circus and being on the beach. That was before actually listening to the words. For some reason I always focus on the music first, then the words.



Here are the links:  You can check them out later on...  Btw If you are interested.. I just got a Samsung smart phone for 30 bucks online.(T-mobile site) It is worth that just for the music...

Last time we went to Disneyland, half of us spent about a full hour trying to reunite with the other half, and the other half did the same, from two points inside the Louisiana section.  An hour.  I was told then by super angry tech GM wife that I MUST get a cellphone.  My argument seemed weak: 'but how did people meet up before?  one stayed where they SAID they were going to stay and the other, WENT there!'  I swallowed hard and prepared for the worst.  but...I never did!  I think if I can survive that almost, I won't ever have to get a dang cellphone!   Seriously, I just don't find it enjoyable to talk on the phone.  I see those people blabba blabba blabba walking down the street.  What on earth could they find to keep saying??   I don't imagine it would be any fun to punch little buttons while walking down the street or at the grocery store or in lines next to other people in public.  It is my sincere #1 biggest modern complaint.  and if I got one, then where do I keep it?  dangling out of my jeans...really?  Wouldn't it fall out?  I can see myself now, 'where did it go?'  you say it's cheap, but really...easy to use?  I can forsee it ringing and me, unable to answer.  Which button do I push?  and you have to subscribe to some never ending service right?  Is THAT really necessary?   When do I just disappear, I ask my wife?  Aren't I always at work, or home, or heading home, etc.?   You want to call me while I'm driving?  Why?  I call you and you don't answer half the time.  Some great invention.  !

John I totally get you. Believe me...I HATE talking on the phone. So much so that my own mother gets mad at me for not calling her back. This is the #1 thing that my friends get mad at me for. So, here is what I did. I got one for 30 bucks, did not give out the number, and have a month to month service with no contract. This way, I can listen to music, not answer the phone(except for hubby 'cause he does not call much, he hates the phone too) and if I need it for emergency, I have it. I told you that I used to have a refillable phone(not Smart). I find that having the ability to listen to music whenever I want to is comforting and worth it. I did not feel that way before I had one, believe me! It is a stress reliever too!! Just for that reason it is worth it for me because my G....d,I have alot of stress! Just think, on lunch (after all of those lawyers were nippin and causing stress) you could be outside in the Cali sun listening to ______. Not being bothered and that time just for you! NICE!!!!!
That is so funny...I finally found someone else who gets in trouble for the phone...hehe! Remember add some music to your day right??[cool]

thanks for the distinction, Kaycee, about listening to music on break or at lunch.  It would have to be then, because my job is like being a scuba diver.  You can do it and at the same time, enjoy singing and whistling from your brain's memories of past listening to music, but you can't do it while listening to music.  Maybe that's why I'm always posting lyrics around my computer screen.  I do have my own office, so I can sing and hum and whistle to songs while I work.

today, is very foggy in Northern California.  No sun.  But since this is San Jose rather than SF, I can get by on just a long sleeve shirt (instead of undershirt, long sleeve shirt, and jacket on top).

you know, when I was under the gun and afraid I was going to have to bite the bullet and get one, I narrowed it down to the simplest ones that old people used, with the fewest buttons and no internet access.  My (much younger) wife probably decided that would be even more embarrassing to her than not having one at all... another complaint about the whole cell-phone conformity culture is that it does not lend itself to dissent. For example, in my search, I thought I would choose a cell phone that looked like a small old fashioned phone (I was picturing a base with a curly cord you pull away, when you hold the phone part to your ear and mouth, then put back when you are done. I didn't want it to play a song, I wanted it to ring like an old-fashioned phone, then after say 3 or phone rings, I wanted to have Fred G. Sanford say "answer the phone, dummie!" But I found no such cell phone and no such downloads. You want to render millineals speechless and think you are from another planet? In addition to telling them you have no cellphone, complain about internet spam. It's a given to them and beyond criticism.

No, but I will play later, after OT, after kids basketball practices, and before I try to find the Bill Maher I missed last night.  and Huang's world.  Just found out that's a show.

not sure what CS major is.  'C, A minor, F, & G.'  That was what Brian told Mike over the phone to tell the musicians before he debuted, 'The boogie's back in town'.  then Mike answers back, suddenly worried.  'uh, great you can come out, but this is a real song, right Bri?  It's not 'Ding Dang' again?'...  (and Brian thinking, 'sweat you, bleep hole, sweat...').

Sorry ...CS is Computer science...Love Maher...I think he should be president...That podcast is really interesting. Gives you a good feeling about Brian. Sometimes I cannot believe how "grounded" he still is. I love how he wears gym shoes and "cool music shirts"...Could you imagine living HIS life...ugh! I would not be strong enough...Did you listen to the "hotel tapes"?[cool] Really cool...
