I just tried to log on to your forum, @SgtPeppersBulldog, but (admittedly at school) chrome said my connection wasn't private, and wouldn't allow me to log on. Why? 

Oh, by the way, this post was made by The Hole Got Fixed!

It might be because the site is only http, (hyper text transfer protocol) not https (hyper text transfer protocol secure).

It's Chrome's fault, not your school's computer. It's happened to me on Chrome quite a few times.

Here's an article about what Chrome's trying to do with http sites. href="http://www.pcworld.com/article/3118164/security/google-chrome-to-start-marking-http-connections-as-insecure.html">

Well, it worked at home. I don't understand.

But as far as that article: Damn Chrome! Why do they have to be obsessed with security? Who cares if someone downloads a virus, anyways?

No need to apologise, I'm just letting you know of a bug! 

If you are an expert at that, I'd love to adopt you and get some advice on how to become a techie!

There's nothing he can do to fix it, since it's a free forum and officially run by a company.

Finally got around (pun intended!ahdn_george_08) To listening to 15 Big Ones today. It was brilliant! My favourite three tracks are Susie Cincinnati, It's OK (believe it or not, Roy Wood plays the sax on this track! a-hard-days-night-ringo-6) and the cover A Casual Look, which has nice harmonies in the outro.

I want to express some of my recent thoughts on Mike Love.  

I’ve never liked the guy and always thought he was an ass, but lately i’ve been realizing that his work in the 60s with The Beach Boys the work of a lyrical mastermind. Most notable on songs like The Warmth Of The Sun his lyrics cut into my emotions, combined with Brian’s tunes the songs are certain to be impactful. 

I also love Mike’s “fun in the sun lyrics” As silly as they may be, they are clever, catchy, and fun.

I'm trying out Pacific Ocean Blue, a 1977 album -- not sure if it's a Dennis Wilson solo album with the rest of the Beach Boys, or officially a Beach Boys album.  Has a nice feel, nicely slick engineering.

P.S.:  When just a few years ago I belatedly discovered "Kokomo", their comeback (?) song put out in 1988 (of which at the time and for years after I remained oblivious), I was stunned by its transcendent coolness. Quite an inspired song.

That’s a Dennis album. And a great one at that.

Thought I should mention I watched the 1980 Knebworth concert on YouTube yesterday. Fantastic! I particularly enjoyed Dennis singing You Are So Beautiful and the audience participation on Fun, Fun Fun. Here's part one if anyone's interested (all the other parts except part four are on YouTube)

I love that song. I found it from the episode of How I Met Your Mother where Ted and Barney take over the bar. It's a really nice tune. Not even close to Pet Sounds level brilliance but it's still a lot of fun.

Rest in Peace Dennis. Perhaps THE most underrated songwriter of his generation.
