RE: RE: RE: RE: ER/TY/AM/OOOH/Beach Boys/Fabs

My picks:

TY over ER

OOOH over AM. AM is their most overrated LP from the '60s, IMO.

Mike Love for most underrated BB, even if I totally dislike the guy. It has nothing to do with liking somebody, not really, it's just who's underlooked in the band. Yeah, Love really was the only non musician in the band, but none of the main BBs were ever really noted as being great musicians, and on many of their LPs they used session musicians instead of playing themselves, other than Brian always played guitar and keys on most of the songs on all of their LP. So they were always so loved because of their great singing, and the only one who seemed to stand out the most as a great singer, was Love.

With the Beatles over RS. I like RS, but just like the Stones' AM this week, it too was overrated, whereas WTB is underrated.

Now a NSC fire update, since I wrote here about it last nite... I got to see the fire first hand and up close today - and in the process got totally lost in the smoke, a very scary thing for sure!

My grandson was visiting his mom there for the last few days and wanted to come back home today, so I went to get him. I had to take the backroads there to their land once outside the main town they live near, since again, all the main roads are shut down and they won't let you thru - even to go get your kid! So I thought I knew my way around there, but with the smoke so thick, I got totally lost - and I found out my phone won't work once there since all the cell towers were now down because of the fire, even if they were still up this morning when my grandson called me. But the smoke was so bad that you can't see for more than a few feet in front of you, max.

So I tried to find my way back to the main road and got even more lost! Then after sitting there lost for a few minutes, in the smoke and in the middle of nowhere trying to figure out where I was, a sheriff deputy drives up to me from out of nowhere (who said cops are never around when you need them?) and asks me what I'm doing there while telling me that the area is closed. So after I explained to him what I was up to, he was cool enough to drive me over to the street my family lives off of. I was actually not too far from where I needed to be, but you just couldn't make out anything in that smoke! The deputy then told me when I left, to take the main road out so I won't get lost again, since it was open (only) to people who were fleeing the area (and only closed to those who were trying to get in).... But the fire is so close to their land, close enough to where you can see the flames up on the nearby hills. I pleaded with them to all leave, but she and her old man are staying put for at least another day, but they got their car and truck already packed and they are ready to leave.

But just breathing in that air there must be like smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day, as it's that bad. Anyway, I got the grandson back home tonight at least and maybe Jackie and her old man will be here for the 4th on Wednesday? I can half understand why people want to stay and protect their homes and land, but if your place does burn, you can replace it, but you can't replace your life if you burn to death trying to protect your home, either. Yet my grandson asked me on the way back home what would I do if a nearby fire was burning near our home, would I stay to protect our house? I told him "no way", yet deep down I know I told him a white lie, as I bet I too would wait till the last minute before fleeing. I just hope I never have to be tested on that, of course.

Here is a link to the highway cams on top of La Veta Pass, located just above where the fire is burning, if you want to take a look: La Veta Pass cams. This main highway/road is closed right now, and the cams have been up and down for the last 2 days, and do note that you also can't see a thing at night. Sunday morning you could see the fire burning right off the side of road there, but as of Monday morning, it was out on that portion of the road. I have no clue what the coming day will bring there and there may be nothing to see at this point... but then again, who knows for sure. Anyway, my kid lives at the bottom of this pass, on the west side of it.
