Saturday 9: Wouldn’t It Be Nice?

1) In the video for this song, the Beach Boys dive into the pool with all their clothes on. Have you ever ended up in the water while fully clothed? If yes, were you pushed?

nope, i jumped in of my accord!

2) In this song, Mike Love sings he wishes “every kiss could be neverending.” Where did you receive your first kiss? Was it wonderful, or awkward?

in front of my then-boyfriend’s locker to “prove a point” to a classmate that we have kissed yet, and it was really frigging awkward

3) Brian Wilson was the creative force behind the Beach Boys. It’s possible that the group’s legendary and unique sound came from a incident of bad parenting. Brian’s father hit him so hard with a wooden plank that he is deaf in his right ear. Which of your senses is sharpest — sight, hearing, smell or taste?

i think smell and taste. my vision and hearing are not that great

4) Brian’s brother Dennis was the cutest member of the group, and also the only one who could surf. Have you been to the beach yet this summer?

nope. 🙁

5) Dennis was also the Beach Boys’ most colorful member. In 1968, he struck up an unfortunate and dangerous friendship with Charles Manson. Is there anyone in your life that you worry has bad taste in friends/lovers?

yes

6) Lead singer Mike Love is the grumpiest Beach Boy. He refuses to perform if the concert promotional materials refer to the group or their songs as “oldies.” Does it bother you to hear the songs, TV shows and movies of your youth described as “classics” or “oldies?”

not really

7) This song has appeared on soundtracks for movies as diverse as Shampoo (1975), The Big Chill (1983), 50 First Dates (2004) and It’s Complicated (2009). Do you own any movie soundtracks?

sure do!

8) In 1966, the year this song was popular, the Miranda Warning became law. Without looking it up, can you recite any of the Miranda Warning?

you have the right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. you have the right to an attorney….something something one will be appointed for you

you’d think will all the crime dramas i watch i’d have it on lock

9) Random question: The local college is pleading for models of all ages and sizes to pose for the life drawing class. Would you help the kids by volunteering to pose in the nude?

sure why not?
