LOS ANGELES—George Himmelsbaugh, 32, was informed Tuesday that he was incorrect in enjoying a thing he had been deriving pleasure from for many years. Authorities in the field informed Himmelsbaugh that, although he believes his appreciation of the thing to be a matter of subjective personal taste, any positive feelings or satisfaction taken from this are by definition erroneous. Furthermore, sources reported, Himmelsbaugh does not in fact enjoy the thing, but has merely been convinced that he does by the influence of others who also claim to enjoy the thing but who must be insane or developmentally disabled if they actually do. Himmelsbaugh has responded to the information by endeavoring to enjoy the correct things in the future.
I fully recognize that I sound like this occasionally. I've been known to get worked up quite easily regarding things I love and don't. But in my defense, I wish more people would show a little more excitement and passion for things in general. I'm getting tired of the la-la-la "it's all good" mentality. Make an effort, for Pete's sake.
That being said, the new Brian Wilson is still horrible. And this version of "Tomorrow Never Knows" has consistently blown me away since 1977.
