Wish they all could be

I'm sitting here watching Late Night with Conan O'Brien and the musical guest tonight is Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys. Now, I'm a big Beach Boys fan, grew up with some of their tapes (remember those?). But I have to say, Brian Wilson, bless his heart. His shirt is way too big and he doesn't stand, and it just makes me sad. The first song he and his band did was from his new record, and I have to say, eh. And then, they did the Beach Boys' classic California Girls. It's just not the same. The song makes me smile, but I feel bad for Brian Wilson. Good for him for continuing to do what he loves I suppose. Long live the Beach Boys.

I've heard many people say what a great artist Brian is, and I have to say, I just don't see it. We all love the groovy tunes of the Beach Boys, but that was then. This is now. I love how you said "bless his heart." Do they know what that really means up in New York? heehee!
