I have no pictures, but I did fine this quote from an interview w/ML in Psychology Today (?!):

ML: Without meditation, I'd probably be dead. It has allowed me to transcend all the bothersome things that happen during the course of a day, a week, a month, a career or a lifetime. I go beyond a certain level of thought. Some of those types of thoughts come from a stressed physiology. They appear in your mind as, "I want to kill that person," "I want to kick the dog," "I want to hurt my wife," "I want to emotionally abuse people."

Ummm... no, they don't, Mike.

Apparently that last one was too large to display. So be it. But by all means, click. His name really is Mike Love -- and yes, he's the little one.

craig keller (evillights), Thursday, 28 April 2005 20:05 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I think the real challenge would be to do a google image search for mike love and find one picture that's not weird in some way.

walter kranz (walterkranz), Thursday, 28 April 2005 21:01 (twelve years ago) Permalink

That's a pretty difficult challenge there, walter.

He looks really tense in most of these. So much for meditation.

also i wonder if he's normally smiling and when someone whips out a camera he suddenly turns all sullen and shit, just to be an ass and spoil the photo. either that or he has a LOT of nutty fans asking for him for autographs.

He has to maintain his image as the mysterious, brooding intellectual of the Beach Boys.

Ah, I wasn't sure if that was Brian. I thought it looked like him, but couldn't entirely tell. Never seen Brian Wilson look like an emo kid with box glasses and black hair (I know the hair just appears black-ish because of the photo.)

Black holes, man -- itty bitty black holes.

I love how the text is arranged strategically so that Mike seems to be fixating on it, tell-tale heart style, with his blue, vulture-like, wandering right eye. Of course in reality there was probably a sushi bar/massage parlor/naked lady positioned just outside the frame.

Closer now to the destination of his culinary pilgrimage, Love made a beeline through the crowd into Quincy Market, weaving through the throngs of grazing tourists with his arm around his daughter. We pushed through the sensory overload of grilled meats, fried fish, pizzas, spices, and sweets that permeated the stuffy food court. Mango drinks and dosas from the Bombay Club were procured. "I love Indian food," Ambha explained. "My name is Indian."

"It's actually an ancient goddess name," said her father as he searched for a table. He traveled to India for the first time in 1968 to take a course by the Maharishi. "It was the same time the Beatles were there. George Harrison and I had our birthday parties there the same month, thrown by the Maharishi," he said.

A lengthy discussion on the history of transcendental meditation followed as Love unpacked the bag of dosas and spicy Indian soup, placing a spoon in our bowl and making sure we had enough napkins. His hands were bejeweled in a dazzling array of rings and bracelets. Love walked us through his techniques of chanting, meditation as a means to invoke the powers of nature, spiritual safaris to the temples of Southern India, and harnessing the powers of positive energy.

A lot to take in between spoonfuls of lentils. He's been meditating daily since that first trip to India and even became a teacher of transcendental meditation.

"There is fascinating knowledge to be gained," he said.

Indeed there is. All you have to do is listen.

I ♥ this guy. I don't know why I ever doubted him.

i'm just to the left, but cropped myself out to make a card and can't find the original file. Love was actually pretty nice to us; Johnston ended up being the real prick of pricks that night.

The studio was a hexagon
Old men were sat on one side
Opposite three bald triplets
I stood in the middle
Fumbling with two tin packets

Listen while I tell this tale of woe
The worm in the bacon of BB
His name was Love
But how were they to know
Mike's gift was only poison

When I died - Love was all around
When I died - Love was in the air
When I died - Love was everywhere
When I died

So whilst the cat's away
And the mouse he did play
Plots came thick and fast
Satanic meditations, shadow emissions

So hoist his music on the mast
So look at the worm in the bacon
Good vibrations, man

When I died - Love was all around
When I died - Love was in the air
When I died - Love was everywhere
When I died

Well then I died

Turned the beat to the brink
To post his name high
Thick and fast on the mast
Sail is all broken

The story of Love
The story of Love
The story of Love

When I died - Love was all around
When I died - Love was in the air
When I died - Love was everywhere
When I died
