www.youtube.com... Dennis Wilson drums and shakes his head on the T.A.M.I show. Some great performances on that show. It's like a snapshot of popular music in the mid 60's

i hate to say i never cared for the beach boys although i like brian and van dyke parks work together. BUT --- i appreciate that only a station like fmu would do a show like this.

Maybe I hit the city tonight.
these songs make me feel like summer tho the weather is dreadful.

@dale like you I was never a beach boys fan, but over the last couple of years I have really begun to appreciate them lately after re-listening to stuff like Pet Sounds.
  Sat. 12/28/13 10:02am David Greenberger:

Dennis, i also got B.B. Today right when it came out. I remember buying it at J.C. Penney's (everyone had a record dept. then!), when I was at the store with my mother (I was 11). Listening to it continuously,it was like some hard to fathom glimpse into an adult world, and a world out beyond the confines of Erie, PA. And I'm glad to say that that album still holds much of its original mystery for me. Happy new year Bob and Dennis! (further delighted to be listening whilst visiting in Brooklyn.)

Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 10:07am kat330:

My minimal star-clicking suggests I'm also not a huge BB fan, but God Only Knows there are more than a handful of their songs / sounds right up there in my fave songs of all time.

Laurie bird is also great in cockfighter, another monte hellman flick
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 10:18am kat330:

@Sd: Yes! Philo and I published some Charles Willeford works and through that got to know his widow, Betsy. Have you seen Woman Chaser?(she can be seen in one scene of the film)
  Sat. 12/28/13 10:22am David Greenberger:

Dale - yes, Presque Isle State PArk -grew up with regular visits to that place (in summers with family -then, as a teenager, in winters too, taking in the existential bleakness of the frozen lake - and also getting stoned, circa 1970-71).

@kat: Charles Willeford? Very envious; love, love those books. The voice: singular in that genre, to my reading ear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/28/13 10:30am dale:

kat, that is just downright creepy - and cool! is that a 200 or 400?

Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 10:34am kat330:

@dale: Isn't it?? Philo said he noticed the Google Earth vehicle behind him, even waved at it, and then periodically checked the area to see if the new "footage" showed up -- and it did.

@Sd: Realized I was unclear. Betsy, not Laurie, in The Woman Chaser (common link being Willeford work).

Great show - perfect timing! Best wishes for a great New Year!

@dale: I know nothing of bikes myself. He got it a couple years ago to commute to his nearby office and allowing us to get by with just one car (NOT a Honda ;).

@Sem: Those book covers are Philo's handiwork, too.

Willeford and classic Hondas? Damn. I need to start from the beginning. Hello, all!
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 10:46am Philo Gristle:

Dale, that's a 1982 CM250C. I'd rather be on a 1970 CL350, but I wanted something slightly newer I can learn basic mechanics on, without the need to wrench every single day.
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 10:47am glenn:

this is a great blog for folks who like books and book design.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/28/13 10:49am dale:

you wouldn't need to wrench either very much. just run some seafoam or techron and marvel mystery oil in your gas to keep carbs clean and top end lubed. stators and regulators are easy to find which is the only issue an old honda may have

I can tie Beach Boys and Philo's Twinstar in a neat bow: tinyurl.com...

Hey, Bob and Dennis, this has been a special morning with you and the BB's! Thanks and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 10:49am Philo Gristle:

Interesting and creepy about Laurie Bird is that she was Art Garfunkel's girlfriend and when he was the lead in Nicolas Roeg's BAD TIMING, Theresa Russell played his girlfriend and her fate mirrored Bird's. I think it was an accident that it turned out that way, but creepy nevertheless...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/28/13 10:51am dale:

that same basic motor lives on in the rebel. don't think it's ANY different except for the frame and rake and trail
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 10:52am Philo Gristle:

@Glenn Interestingly synchronous link! First thing I see is Luc Sante writing about Llewyn Davis, and he not only is a big Willeford fan, but was married to Melissa Pierson who wrote one of the best motorcycle books of recent vintage, The Perfect vehicle. Not Hondas so much, but Guzzis'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/28/13 10:54am dale:

i have a 72 bmw airhead too. wasn't gonna spoil the bonding moment. you want a guzzi/honda get a cx500
Avatar Sat. 12/28/13 10:55am Philo Gristle:

@Dale Yeah, that engine started with the Twinstar, CM250 is the mid-period (and not quite as ugly as the Rebel), and still chugging along in Rebel. There's something about those early 70s Japanese bikes that appeals... and I'd never want anything bigger than a 500.

i had an st1300 for a while. great on the highway. a monster for the driveway

I like the light weight and overall nimbleness of smaller bikes. T500 Suzuki or Guzzi V5 monza outside pre-76 Honda Scramblers....
