Nice punchline.

I also laughed at the "you know what this is not my cat" bit.

Skimmed through this out of curiosity. I guess was when Carl was the leader.


Either way, Mike starts talking in Spanish and says he's happy to be in Madrid. He's in Paris. He also does some real bizarre grunting at the beginning of I Get Around.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I picked up Etta James' 1998 album, Seven Year Itch, from a thrift store sometime last Fall and finally gave it a spin last night. Alright stuff - Etta is a great talent, this is for-her-career latter day "comeback" record - but I thought it was interesting to note that the album was produced by none other than Ricky Fataar (who also drummed on some of the album). Nice little connection to one of my favorite Beach Boys lineups.

Why settle for the van when you can buy the house?

Lots of solar panels on the roof. Jives with his Summer In Paradise ethos.

That's fucking weird in a lot of ways.

Question: Do Mike Love fans refer to themselves as Mike Lovers? That's probably true, right?

Is anyone here a member of the Mike Love is a Douchebag Facebook group? A friend of mine says there's a picture of a quilt that a fan of his made that includes all his touring band. I guess you have to be a member to see posts, so I'm shut out.

Hello,

I don't think this may belong here, I thought there was a more general Beach Boys thread, and it's not about Mike Love and a van - but thought people who like the Beach Boys may be interested in hearing this. I'm a Los Straitjackets fan and enjoyed it - the song and video are timely.

I enjoyed it, too. Ganz Allein!
