You know, I think I asked if you've taken the trouble to go read my profile 2 years ago, and I'm willing to bet you still haven't. Everything has got to be a full blown serious political fight to the bloody death with you devoid of any humor and joy. 99% of my posts are nonsense-based because if you've read my profile it says I don't take myself seriously. I crossed my fingers at one point a year ago when you said maybe you come on too strong sometimes, and thought I'd hang on. I do find your opinions interesting and I've even read the long epic fights you've had with other people who take themselves very seriously. I didn't enjoy them, but accepted that was your style. At this point in my life I just don't have the time for this. Not even to answer your question.
I'm listening to this right now. The journey of the project itself is interesting. On one hand, I totally understand and empathize with a musician going back and tweaking what was considered an "incomplete project." I still tweak and add finishing touches to some of the pieces we mastered at Philip Glass's studio that were then processed by Bob Ludwig. I name drop here to indicate we weren't exactly using a desktop sequencer in our pro days.
I'll always take the side of the creator, in this case, Wilson and Van Dyke Park. Only they ultimately know what lurks in their heads. We will never know.
Still a big part of me wonders how great it would have sounded had it been pulled off in 1967. It could have been the second revolution to stave off the British invasion. The best part of The Smile Session was it sounded like a live take. It was of the moment. BWPS (Brian WIlson Presents Smile) sounds well....exactly like what it was....snippets on Pro-Tools assembled together.
And an old guy singing to you about eating your vegetables doesn't quite have the whimsy of a bunch of bright eyed young boys singing about eating your vegetables.
On the other hand Surfs Up finally received the attention it deserves. Posh, intelligent- a lush, erudite vista of American melancholia.
And the reverb. (shakes head) Plate reverb!!!!! Reverb is the crucial stamp of surf music. Modern technology and digital reverb - no matter how they try to name their reverb settings to hearken back to retro sounds - can NEVER be analog plate reverb. It's too clean.
Anyone who's ever plugged into a Fender Twin can tell you that!
Another interesting article about the comparison of the two:

I guess having been raised by my pops - who was also a professional photog -who said he can get through life with a Pentax Spotmatic and one 28mm lens, there is a huge disconnect when I read this.
The craziest part of the short video is how he says his camera collection is his identity. Whatever floats your boat.

Can you do 3 days of just photo posts on G+? No captions, no titles, just photo posts. There is no limit, and there's no restrictions on subject matter. Foodie posts, selfies, nudes, whatever. Just shot from your own camera or cellphone. It can't be other people's photos. Just hashtag #3DayPhotoChallenge . You just can't mix it up with regular word posts. It must be ALL photos for just three days. COLOR OR BLACK AND WHITE, it's all good.
I'm trying to rediscover the mystery of the image. What's the story here? Where did this come from? What is this? To a certain extent, I think online social media and blogging has over-worded the world around us. The uncaptioned image allows creative input and improvisation on the narrative from the part of the viewer, as opposed to mere passive consumption of an over-explained image.
If I get more than 10 people tagging me, I'll start the moment the number goes past ten.
Remember: hashtag #3DayPhotoChallenge
