In 1966, Brian Wilson planned to follow up the Beach Boys' groundbreaking album Pet Sounds with an even bigger musical statement. He was writing a teenage symphony to God. That album, Smile, was never finished. Instead, Brian slowly unraveled, as the pressure to make something profound weighed heavy on him. He worried that he wasn’t good enough. He worried that he was a failure in the eyes of the record company, his band, his peers, and his own father. He thought his house was bugged. He tho ...

"For the most part, we have a large enough cohort of the electorate that does not really want freedom, because that's risky. What we want is safety and security and uninterrupted cable or internet service and the fulfillment of our own hedonistic desires... and that's a wole different thing than someone yearning to be free." -- Don Williams Brian a…
 
"It is clearly with political intent (student loan forgiveness) that it was done in the first place, and clearly with the idea that you could, in fact, get younger voters to the polls for a midterm, which is not something that typically happens.

"Behind the scenes, I think what's happening here is the polling be damned on the Democratic side.

"You can ignore the laws of economics, but they will not ignore you. Those laws, principles and forces have already been ignored; the consequences are what we are now facing.

"They'll [some pollsters will] include more Democrats and fewer Republicans in their sample, so no surprise the Democrats look better in the survey. The other factor that they'll do is they'll include a sample of all adults, or maybe registered voters -- they won't include a sample of likely voters."

"I think the Declaration of Independence is the most perfect expression of the human aspiration in a corporeal sense... I think the Constitution is a waste of time and paper."

Sometimes you can find redemption, but you have to find it for yourself. No one is going to give it to you. You can’t find it in a movie or a song. You can only find it inside yourself.

"It's sad to see how few politicians stood up against that tidal wave [after 9/11]. You had Ron Paul... you had Russ Feingold who was the only senator to vote against the Patriot Act. There wasn't much support for that. The Justice Department put up a website and it had a list of really bad articles... and I was happy to be included." -- Author Jim…
 
"As November inches ever closer, and as a way to introduce you to another poll I came across that exemplifies the impact of the Mainstream Media, educating Mr. and Mrs. John "A" for average citizen.

Brian continues to lose control. And not just of his band and the music he makes. He loses self-control and becomes so dependent on drugs that he pays someone to deliver them to him. He loses control of his car and nearly kills himself in a crash. And then he loses control of himself – in front of one of the biggest rock ‘n roll stars of all time. …
 
After months of frustration, the Beach Boys abandon Smile to work on new music. But for Brian it’s not that easy. He’s quickly losing control. He’s betrayed by those meant to be closest to him.

"Leaving aside for a moment the fine art of Projection, perfected and practiced by liberals everywhere, what is this “Democracy” they speak of and want so desperately to protect?

"Do you understand: all of this was caused by government and its deadly combination of individuals pursuing selfish ends to control American citizens? That their actions were mirrored in countries around the world – all with similar results – only compounds the felony indictment against those responsible."

"Here are the important parts: First, those “news reports”? They’re lies. The Media lies. It lies by omission and commission. Mis-truths, half-truths and outright lies. When they don’t report something, the truth becomes a ‘conspiracy theory’ simply because they didn’t report it that way." Visit Brian's Website NFSCD Facebook page Brian's Book 50 S…

Brian is haunted by the Monterey Pop Festival, John Lennon’s voice, and the disapproval of his fellow Beach Boys.

"One current event thing that caught my eye -- a political cartoon that featured the CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, who you probably saw on TV too many times in the so-called Pandemic. The cartoon said: 'We failed during COVID, so we're re-setting our expectations, starting with our name..." Centers for Disease Confusion." Visit Brian's Websit…
 
The pressure builds in Brian's mind as he continues to work on Smile with the Beach Boys. His vision is completely out of step with what the others expect.

Before the Beach Boys began to work on Smile, Brian Wilson was already expanding his mind with the aid of LSD. The drug proved to be a point of contention with other band members, who bristled at Brian's newfound mind-altering methodology. Brian's LSD intake didn't just spark arguments between the Beach Boys. LSD made a black-and-white appear in Te…

"If you were able to control your gag reflex, what many are calling a big 'Nothingburger' came after four days of deafening silence.

Trees grow tall, leaves fall, rivers dry up, and flowers die. New people are born every day. Life doesn’t stop. Sometimes things can change in an instant—a gunshot to the head, a man losing control of a motorbike—but sometimes things take years to change. And sometimes, like in the curious case of Bob Dylan, a man can go through a lifetime of chang…
 
Nine days after his near-fatal accident, Bob Dylan has become increasingly consumed with his own mortality. He sees the world as a much older, and perhaps wiser, man. He has died as many times as he has lived. Bleak winters in Minnesota have taken their toll. So has the life of a touring musician. There’s also another brush with fate on yet another…
 
As Bob Dylan’s physical injuries continue to heal, there is a growing concern that mental problems are only beginning to surface. He struggles with an identity crisis. Did he really introduce the Beatles to marijuana? Did he actually steal movie reels of an unreleased film from one of the most famous directors in the world? And what on earth was he…
 
Bob Dylan continues to recover from his motorcycle accident in upstate New York. He thinks of the things he’s done that he’s not proud of. The depths to which he’s sunk, only to find that you can always go lower. He worries that the words will stop coming. He yearns to hide in the skin of someone who is not Bob Dylan. Someone who can play “dead” on…
 
Courtrooms, contracts, lawyers, and loss. Stalkers, divorcees, punk rockers, and the wrong harmonica. These are the things on Bob Dylan’s mind as he continues to endure a secret recovery at a doctor’s private house in upstate New York. Dylan’s future continues to unfold from behind his eyes. He changes. So much that he begins to forget who he is. O…
 
On the fifth day of his recovery from a motorcycle accident, Bob Dylan begins to hallucinate. He claims he’s not only seen our Lord and savior, but that he’s had a close encounter with Jesus Christ himself. It’s an encounter that changes him forever. Don’t believe him? That’s fine. But everyone serves somebody. And you just might question what it i…
 
When a man wears a mask, he’s gonna tell you the truth. That’s what Bob Dylan is thinking about as he continues his recovery from his motorcycle accident: being masked and not-so-anonymous on a rambling spectacle of a tour that feels more like the Greatest Show on Earth than a rock concert. Dylan’s fever dream-like state allows him to peek into the…
 
Bob Dylan continues to spend his days recovering from his accident thinking about change. And not just artistic change, but physical change. From New York he goes to Nashville in his mind, where he’s callously snubbed by Jerry Lee Lewis, lovingly embraced by Johnny Cash, and hopelessly drunk on Leprechaun Cocktails with some of the finest musicians…
 
As Bob Dylan continues to recover from his accident, he remembers another motorcycle crash, one that took the life of a biker with a suspiciously familiar name. Robert Zimmerman, president of the San Bernardino chapter of the Hell’s Angels, dies on the road at the very moment that another Robert Zimmerman, this one from Minnesota, becomes Bob Dylan…
