This morning, while watching CBS Sunday Morning, I watched a segment on the Beach Boys 50th anniversary. It was interesting in some respects, as I never knew that they lost the 1967 Grammy award for best Rock and Roll Group Performance (for Good Vibrations) to The Mamas and The Papas (for Monday Monday)...
I guess the most interesting thing I gathered/deduced from the show is that this year Wilson Phillips is also making a comeback of sorts, and as most of us know, Carnie and Wendy (Wilson) are the daughters of Beach Boy Brian Wilson, and Chynna (Phillips) the daughter of The Mamas & The Papas's John and Michelle Phillips.
The two most recent things I have heard from Wilson Phillips are their covers of "Good Vibrations" from the Beach Boys, and less recently "California Dreamin" both off their newest album...
Click and enjoy if you are a fan of all three groups:

Just in case I have never said it... This was one of my favorite shows in the 70's... MTM and the spinoffs could not be more refreshing at the time and I looked forward to it every week and the re-runs too...
I don't think any of the 3 million channels I get on cable plays any MTM reruns these days.
Let me know if I am wrong...

Like we didn't already know:
"The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud."
"I have always been very open and honest about this part of my life with my friends, my family, and my colleagues. In a perfect world, I don't think it's anyone else's business, but I do think there is value in standing up and being counted. I’m not an activist, but I am a human being and I don't give that up by being a journalist." - Anderson Cooper
Gaydar is a very serious weapon... Welcome to this side of the closet door Mr. Cooper...
