I finally got my hands on Brian Wilson’s “SMiLE” today, and while I’ve heard much of it before thanks to a couple of friends who are bootleg fanatics, it’s still a treasure.

I hit ‘play’ on the iPod while waiting for the bus today in the freezing rain, and for a moment I wasn’t in cold and gray Prague, but somewhere in a warm and bright place, somewhere in Brian Wilson’s mind.
