As I expected at previous posts, the Beach Boys will be touring ‘without’ Brian Wilson. (at least this article says so.) Not only the article at musicfeeds says, the guardian and Q Magazine also say the same thing. It seems the Q magazine is the original source.
Never blame me that I was relieved hearing it, sorry. I can understand how people wanna see the reunion show though. It’s just my opinion, Brian should be a solo. But it’ll be great hearing the reunion version of “Do It Again” And hoping he’ll be a special guest at a couple of world tour shows. That would be perfect to me. - Kota.
It seems the news is true, at this time. I’ve been watching this kind of topics too many times since I became their fan. Several of them included member’s comment, but they weren’t true or never happened what they said.
I’m happy to hear the news but I can’t easily say that this gonna be wonderful thing… complicated. I mean, will it be less-quarrel project? I hope the tragedy never happens again. Brian Wilson is good at a solo artist, I guess. He no longer needs fame of the surfin’ band. Hope the band will be directed by Jeffrey Foskett, Darian Sahanaja, Scott Bennett etc. - Kota.
“RT from dreamdrop7: So after a deep search I came to the conclusion that the tracked tags do not show numbers next to it when I’m following more than 20 tags. Seriously? Do not make me chose, Tumblr. Uncap that shit and let there be lots of tracked tags all of them with numbers next to it!”—
In Japan, we write ‘adolescence’ in Kanji as "青春 Blue Spring" … What’s "blue spring"??? I can never imagine blue landscape in April. (Red or Orange may be better, isn’t it?)
Many people looks back their past.
"That time was great, comparing with these days…"
"It was the best moment of my life, comparing with…"
just like these. Of course, I admit that I sometimes look back my o’l days. But that never give me bright future. They just gimme some hints n’ tips, and tiny little pleasures for a couple of minutes. We should have a 'bifurcation' at this time. Let’s think about future, instead of past. Then, we may start thinking more carefully about present.
When I was working on "HAPPINESS" album, it was the time me and many Japanese people were depressed by the huge earthquake and nuclear power plant problems. Then I thought I need to make a "bifurcation" to me. Throw my past, and think more about future. How can I get brighter future? I was looking for an answer during the production period. One answer I reached was, to build a strong local community and rehabilitation of in-person communications. Never rely on computer and media, or some virtual things. I never say
"I wanna revolution by using Facebook n’ Twitter!!"
Social media and internet should be as alternate choices. Not for primary choice.
The main topic of my "HAPPINESS" album was to make a "bifurcation" … for the bright future. We need to start moving, even if you’re alone. You can find your mate, understanding, good partners can’t you? You should express your opinions n’ thoughts at conversation or twitter. (tumblr of course!) I’ve been discussing this topic at my Japanese website for years, and recently finally published "HAPPINESS" mix, and this website. I need some more mates and partners, because I know I can’t do it alone.
By "HAPPINESS" I tried to find my understanding, mates. I wanted to express and clarify my thoughts. My song "Breathe in the Air" was about my thoughts on nuclear problems. “Situation” is about darker and serious atmosphere I experienced in Tokyo. And "Bifurcation" gives you a chance to have it. Of course, music is just music, I mean, the album is just a compilation of good music. But if you have a chance, please listen to it carefully, and read my liner-note included to download pack. I don’t want you all to agree on my thoughts. Never stop thinking of future and happiness more. Do not think about your past too much. As Fleetwood Mac once sung…
