The 6th Greatest Song of All-Time – The Beach Boys

Some tunes on the All-Time list are a little bit of a surprise. Other songs are not. “Good Vibrations” by the Beach Boys shouldn’t surprise anyone. It is a great tune. The harmony is legendary. The complexity for a pop tune is incredible.

From RS:

“It scared me, the word ‘vi-brations,'” Brian Wilson once said, remembering how, when he was a boy, his mother, Audree, tried to explain why dogs barked at some people and not others. “A dog would pick up vibrations from these people that you can’t see but you can feel. And the same thing happened with people.” “Good Vibrations” harnessed that energy and turned it into eternal sunshine. “This is a very spiritual song,” Wilson said after its release, “and I want it to give off good vibrations.” (more…)

Flesh Eating Beach Not So Bad

You may have heard about a recent case of the flesh eating virus that a man contracted on a Texas beach. That beach was Crystal Beach which is located on Bolivar Peninsula in Galveston County, Texas.

I was at Crystal Beach two days ago. I did not go in the water because I’m afraid of jellyfish and sting rays and whatever else is lurking beneath the waves.

That said, Texas beaches in Galveston County are nice to visit. The people who go there are often folks who may not have the resources to go to another “nicer” beach someplace else.

It is highly unlikely you will get the flesh eating virus.

A day or a few days visiting Galveston Island and vicinity is time well spent. You’ll find a lot of history and things to do.

As for the bad stuff, as Public Enemy once said, “Don’t believe the hype.”
