Pop Culture Roundup: Brian Wilson; ZBS Media; Julius Schwartz; Rolling Stones

Rolling Stone has a fresh interview with Beach Boys genius Brian Wilson.
"I call myself Brian Willpower Wilson," he says. "I tell myself that, and it helps me push through the tough stuff. You know, I feel like I've got about 15 years left, so I want to make the most of it. So I'm taking things a little easier lately. Like, when I wake up in the morning, instead of going, 'Oh, no, not another day,' I'm going, 'Oh, God, thank you for another day!' "

I can't plug ZBS Media strongly enough. I've been a fan of their audio adventures since I first hear "The Fourth Tower of Inverness" on my college radio station back in 1975. Check out their latest series, the steam punk-inspired "Lady Windermere’s Brass Fantabulous" here.

A historical plaque marking the spot where Mick Jagger met Keith Richards is being replaced after former Rolling Stones' bassist Bill Wyman objected to the wording.
The blue plaque, unveiled at Dartford station in February, says the pair "went on to form The Rolling Stones".
But Wyman complained, saying guitarist Brian Jones created The Rolling Stones and enlisted the other members.
