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 ...

The Beach Boys stage an intervention to get Brian the help he needs just as he reaches what he thinks is the bottom. He’s pulled out of the darkness by a doctor – a man Brian immediately recognizes as his savior. But Brian’s vision isn’t clear. He can’t see the doctor for who he really is: not the person who will set Brian free, but rather keep him…
 
"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. They're the first cousins to the Sixpack family, you'll remember we featured in a recent Pod." Visit Brian's Website NFSCD Facebook page Brian's Book 5…
 
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. And one of his brothers is flirting with a dark and disturbing group of people living on the fringes of society…a so-called family that may or may not infil…
 
"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? In its simplicity, the question is almost embarrassing to ask, but nevertheless, Is America a democracy? If so, when did that happen? Who was in charge of the change? Why …
 
"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’s troubled relationship with his controlling and abusive father comes into focus. Paul McCartney stops by a California recording studio to chew some celery into a microphone.

"Today, the “Mainstream Media” has squandered all credibility. Serving as a shield for corrupt politicians – and their kin – it is managed by the 3 monkeys who hear, see and speak no evil of those of a certain political persuasion."

Brian is haunted by the Monterey Pop Festival, John Lennon’s voice, and the disapproval of his fellow Beach Boys. He finally goes off the deep end – literally, straight into the deep end of his pool where he holds band meetings, far away from the prying eyes and ears of the people he thinks are watching him. SOURCES Catch a Wave: The Rise, Fall, an…
 
"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. A new collaborator butts heads with the band. His father, Murray, and his idol, famed record producer Phil Spector, haunt him. And just when things seem like they'll never get back on track, ins…
 
"Ever since that fateful raid, every Mainstream Media outlet, Cable channel, Talk Show Host, Blogger and Podcaster is trying to come up with the perfect answer to the question, WHY?"

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…

We're inside the mind of Brian Douglas Wilson, of course, the genius behind the Beach Boys' unprecedented masterpiece Pet Sounds. There are lots of things in here...songs, melodies, ideas...but there are also many dark corners for things to lurk i…
 
"If you were able to control your gag reflex, what many are calling a big 'Nothingburger' came after four days of deafening silence. The vacuity of the statement was SO vacuous, several pundits correctly pointed out it easily could have been delivered promptly on the evening of the unprecedented events. But he didn't."

"Once upon a time, long ago and far away when I had a show on KSFO San Francisco, I told a caller who was asking about the possibilities of some Conspiracy Theory, that the only way we'd know is with the passing of enough time, since time is the sole arbiter between Prescience and Paranoia."

"Sounds like a conspiracy theory, doesn't it? But just researching the origin and purpose of that term is as much an indictment as a revelation.

"Here's a couple of things I've been thinking about -- the mental state of Joe Biden. It's just not fully or positively represented in the congress of mental health. Any appearance, any time, any place... it's just a matter of time, and words, before he stumbles, stutters and mumbles his way into inarticulate oblivion." Brian's Website NFSCD Facebo…

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.

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.

Someone who can play “dead” on…

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.

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 the 1970s came to a close, John Lennon famously withdrew from the public eye to focus on his family life.
