LOVE AND MERCY, $7 matinee at Somerville Theatre, Brian Wilson and my mother have same mayflower ancestor, so, as a proponent of WASP-rock, I DO love the BLEACH (as in SO fucken white!) BOYS; my mother also!
seeing pre-JFK assassination california reminded me of my idyllic southern youth during CAMELOT (JFK), it SO summed up them tymes. Alpo (RIP) and I usedta lissen to a lot of Pet Sounds (Alan Paulino, always WAS tortured genius and/or identified with BRO-KEN people)....Murray Wilson (dad) Mike Love (cuzzin!) and Dr. Landy are all depicted as the manipulative assholes that they are/were (read the ole Brian Wilson bios; i looked at mine at Brattle book shoppe back in '89!).
glad his second wife "rescued' him and they're happily marrried, he went on still to make great music....great soundtrack but even better, as a "paranoid schizophrenic" (that was malpractice and i aint talkin' Merle and Kevin Allin!), MANY Beach Boys toons play through his head..also Jon Paley listed as "stuntman" and he produced/played bass on Jumper Cables "death squad of the mind", a Mad Max, Sonic Daze fave! so now I'm almost Kenneth Wilson/Brian Highland, a couple degrees separation?" oh, yeah, 300 pounds, stayed in bed three years; I was 298 lbs. with edema and bedridden for six months; no pajamas though.
did radio interview with Mike Kole for gigs in Indiana for Gizmos; billy borgioli tribute at Cuisine en Locale sunday 9 august; i think boog's birthday was 5 august;"maybe i'm a leo"-DEEP PURPLE!
"Johnny and Jumper Cables ARE part of the arthur freedman video archives at harvard film archives; lettuce not fergit dad's "incestor" william spencer was 1633 town clerk of NEWTOWNE and third to sign town paper's so as a di-rect descendant (PLUS thomas bloggett sold land to Edier Frost, a founder of harvard), I DESERVE to be there! 'course the Spencers and Blodgetts would have me wearin' the whole alphabet around my neck too, but again;11 generations from ye olde burying grounde to ye film archives..."there ARE no coincidences! George Noory!

I may not have even tyme in bloomington, indiana to write (though you CAN call me at 617-803-1289!) but according to the Gizmos world tour facebook page, we have gigs friday AND saturday PLUS a recording session...oh wait we did the same thing in 1977....only i was 21 year old Marine 40 years and 100 pounds ago! either way, it WILL be fun, lotsa road stories coming up, but look at my facebook wall (even friend me OR enemy me if you like!) coz "every picture tells a story, don't it?"
