Aquarian Smile

Hello everyone! I wanted to share a new version of smile called Aquarian Smile! I honestly think this is my all time favorite version of Smile. Such creativity is great after all these years. It really rejuvenates my appetite for this music! Go ahead and listen to it on YouTube or download it in mp3 and flac below (with liner notes!)

My Conversations With Denni Leann

Hello friends!

It's me Eric. Here is a photo of Me with my fiancée Laura. (We're getting married in May and having a baby in October, surprise!)


For the past few days the entire internet has been freaking out over Sherry Hutsell's scheme (read 3 entries below if you don't know what I'm talking about) and this has a lot of people asking me what I knew about her. My knee-jerk reaction has been to say "I never spoke to her at all!", or "I spoke to her once or twice, but she creeped me out!". Both of those are lies. I spoke to the character "Denni Leann" for 15 days.

I believed the lie for 15 days.

It happened between August 1st, 2011 and August 15, 2011. I had seen Sherry Hutsell on the Smiley Smile board since 2006 when I first joined, then the year after the character of Denni Leann began to gather believers on the forum. I never bothered to read any of her threads, so I had no idea that this was happening. I never spoke to her until she added me on facebook on August 1, 2011. In the conversations you are about to read (or not, its pretty long) I tried hard to be a friend to the perpetually sad pseduo lost Wilson. I attempted to raise her self esteem and show her that life wasn't so bad. I tried to get her to say ANYTHING at all related to me...but it never happened. She was only interested in herself and essentially used me to vent the frustrations she felt of managing such a complex digital life.

She was also determined to get me involved in her drama and when I chose to steer our conversations in a healthy direction, she would try a different piece of gossip to drag me in. She complained about the Wilson children not accepting her. She mentioned that someone arranged for the actual Wilson children to speak with her on the phone, and, according to her they kind of liked it. She mentioned a lot of wacky stuff. I believed her initially, but as time went on I tried to get more and more information out of her, which ultimately led to our parting of ways. World, please forgive me for being so gullible for 15 days. 

On the last day of our friendship, the last message she sent said that she had to go to work at 6:51pm (may have been 3:51pm her time, but still, who goes to work at that time?). About an hour later I asked her to post a time stamped photo on her Facebook wall and she blocked me immediately (from work?), followed by about 30 other friends who blocked and de-friended me, some of whom messaged me, outraged that I could doubt her story. It was wacky in retrospect that any of this ever happened.

So, without further introduction, here is the unedited, complete transcript of my conversations with Denni Leann, aka Sherry Hutsell.

but yeah i really liked this girl
and we had been dating for only like a week, but i liked her for a long time before we dated
and it was on my 24th birthday
we both went to warped tour together
and she saw her exboyfriend there with a new girl and she got upset and broke up with me
and the whole car ride home was SO awkward
then on the way home I locked my keys in my car and had to smash my back window with a fire extinguisher to get home
worst break up ever. I'm glad it happened though, because I know the next break up can't be that bad!

8/4, 9:26pm

8/15, 6:39pm
Eric Warncke
hello

8/15, 6:39pm
Eric Warncke

8/15, 6:40pm
Denni Leann
DENNI LEANN IS ALL I CAN SAY..WHY

8/15, 6:40pm
Eric Warncke
whats with the caps?
and the secrecy?

8/15, 6:40pm
Denni Leann
sorry..didnt know

8/15, 6:41pm
Eric Warncke
i just figured out that that isnt your name

8/15, 6:41pm
Denni Leann
no ..i just dont want freaks trying to find me. im sure you understand

8/15, 6:41pm
Eric Warncke
so i wanted to know

8/15, 6:41pm
Denni Leann
denni is my first name leann is my middle

8/15, 6:41pm
Eric Warncke
oh
haha
sorry

8/15, 6:41pm
Denni Leann
my last name cant be put out there yet
i have stalkers as it is

8/15, 6:42pm
Eric Warncke
oh yeah?
what's that like
because ive had like hackers before but probably not window peepers

8/15, 6:42pm
Denni Leann
john stebbins and others had to get my pics off many websites

8/15, 6:42pm
Eric Warncke
how could they do something like that?
are they hackers too?

8/15, 6:43pm
Denni Leann
they are dw freak that want my moms pic today and mine so they can sell them
to gossip mags

8/15, 6:43pm
Eric Warncke
oh
you really think any gossip magazines would actually buy that?

8/15, 6:43pm
Denni Leann
i have to be careful

8/15, 6:44pm
Eric Warncke
the only reason i ask, is because ive tried to sell stories to gossip magazines
about Pauly D from the jersey shore
and they didnt buy them
they pretty much don't care unless its lindsay lohan or charlie sheen

8/15, 6:44pm
Denni Leann
they have offered my mom book deals
she will never
betray denny

8/15, 6:44pm
Eric Warncke
well thats not betrayal
at least the way i see it
unless she says something in the book that is a lie
or he promised her to never write a book about him
i would understand that
but other wise that doesn't make much sense
she writes a nice book about how great a guy he is and makes money
i don't see the immediate harm

8/15, 6:46pm
Denni Leann
she knew him the last year the most horrible time, not much good there
he told her stories that would make your head spin

8/15, 6:46pm
Eric Warncke
yeah
1983 was no doubt a bad time for him
but i am surprised that you would need to be so guarded
i guess i am so unimportant that the ideas of obsession is a bit radical to me
ya know?

8/15, 6:48pm
Denni Leann
from day one, i have had all kinds of crap. my pics on message boards and websites

8/15, 6:48pm
Eric Warncke
well

8/15, 6:48pm
Denni Leann
like i said dennys old friends came to my resuce

8/15, 6:48pm
Eric Warncke
if it makes you feel any better
im not going to post anything about you on my blog
mostly because you arent a bootleg album

8/15, 6:49pm
Denni Leann
theres nothing to post. i dont step over the line

8/15, 6:49pm
Eric Warncke
oh theres always something to post
regardless of the existence of lines

8/15, 6:49pm
Denni Leann
nothing eeryone already knows

8/15, 6:49pm
Eric Warncke
i guess thats true

8/15, 6:49pm
Denni Leann
i keep things to myself

8/15, 6:50pm
Eric Warncke
well, sorry if this is an awkward conversation
i didnt intend for it to be

8/15, 6:50pm
Denni Leann
no prob
goyya get head to work 

8/15, 6:51pm
Eric Warncke
oh ok
didnt realize

BBC Documentary 2004 "Wouldn't It Be Nice"

A few people have asked me to post the 2004 documentary Wouldn't It Be Nice. Here you go. It's been up on Myspace for a really long time. I guess everyone forgot it was there. Someone should snag this thing before it's gone.

Thanks Hilton Teper, wherever you are.

A serious thought about obsession

Hello Beach Boys fans! It's me, Eric. I wanted to share my thoughts on a bizarre situation that has been unfolding for the past few years. In 2009 I got a friend request from someone on Facebook named "Denni Leann". I accepted as I usually do out of courtesy and learned that she believed she was "Dennis Wilson's illegitimate daughter". It kind of made sense...Dennis Wilson slept around a lot, she was 29 at the time (meaning Dennis could have been alive to father her), she seemed to know a lot of personal details about the family, but most of all, she seemed to believe her own story. She also always seemed to be in crisis. Either her mother was in the hospital, she was dying or she was about to be evicted. It was always a sob story. Some people even spoke to her on the phone, sent her money and spoke to her for over 3 years.

I figured out this was not a real person in late 2011 and called her out on it, only to have myself blocked on facebook and laughed at by about 50 of her believers. No big deal I thought...but for 2 more years this kept going on while I paid no more attention. Today when I logged in on facebook I saw the following:



There you have it. Julia Gifford is a real person who has had her identity stolen by someone for the past 5 years. When someone finally found her real profile, Denni Leann quietly deleted her Facebook account, fading into the maw of obscurity where she (or he) came from. Obviously the person responsible loves the Beach Boys and wanted to feel like they were important to this community of fans. But, there was also a financial aspect to it. A lot of older people like the Beach Boys, and when an older person hears that the child of his favorite musician is in trouble, it is near impossible to stop them from trying to help.

This person is a criminal and I feel very sad that this happened. If anyone spoke to Denni Leann or knows the person's real identity, I would love it if you would share your thoughts in a comment.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: An anonymous Beach Boys fan has shared a real letter that Denni sent them. There was a return address on the letter, and, according to Google this person lives there. The picture on the left was included in an email from Denni Leann sent to the fan. The photo on the right is from her original Facebook account before this started.



Many times Denni Leann mentioned her mom and posted pictures of her. It turns out, Denni's mom IS "Denni". Kind of sad. Kind of lonely. Completely pathetic.

EDIT 2: Since posting this article I have received A LOT of messages about this. I could completely re-write this article with more accurate information about what REALLY happened, but I'm not going to bother. This woman is sick in the head and this exacerbates her compulsion to pretend to be the daughter of a rock drummer (and dozens of other personalities) online.

She has dozens and possibly hundreds of facebook profiles that communicate with each other and I'm not sure if she actually believes these characters are real or not. It makes me not want to log into Facebook anymore.

I'm struggling to end this on a serious note, but unless someone puts a stop to this and reports it (like the woman whose identity was stolen) I think this woman, Sherry Hutsell, will just keep coming back under different names. It has bummed me out to see so many of my friends taken on a ride, believing her drama and caring about her for years, only to be devastated again to learn that the person they thought was real was, well, not.

That is a really terrible thing to do.

EDIT 3: Apparently there was one other woman involved with Sherry Hutsell who would occasionally talk to some of her victims and pose as Denni on Skype or over the phone. Could have been her sister, or a friend or someone she met at the hospital. Who knows?

Happy New Year!

Hello everyone! I just wanted to say Happy New Year! I can't believe its 2014! I started this blog back in 2006, so that's...a lot of years! I am 26 now and wanted to thank everyone for their continued support and friendship. I still have most of the files on this blog that have been lost, but still no reliable place to store them. I am trying out a website called Adrive.com right now because I am low on cash for server costs. I'll hopefully be able to re-dump most of the stuff that has been lost on here. This will be the year! - Eric W

Caroline Mountain

Hello!

I recently discovered a wonderful band from San Francisco, CA called "Sugar Candy Mountain". On their latest record, Mystic Hits, they released a song called Caroline Mountain, which is based off the original Beach Boys song Caroline, No from the Pet Sounds album. It breathes a lot of life into the song and its original harmonies and vocal effects combine to create an even lusher trip than the original. Enjoy and be sure to check out all of their music at http://sugarcandymountain.bandcamp.com (it's all wonderful!).

Server Space

I have about 30GB of Beach Boys stuff I want to share, but I have nowhere to host it (as sites like rapidshare often remove them) If anyone has some server space that they would be willing to "loan" me, I would be happy to get this blog back on track. Please email me, ericwarncke@gmail.com if you can help. Please don't leave a comment on this post, as I will probably not see it. I'm still dealing with hundreds of spam comments every day. - Eric Warncke

Not Posting

Hello Beach Boys friends, I haven't been updating this blog much lately because I receive hundreds of spam comments every day that bury any real comments, so I have taken a vacation from deleting dozens of comments every day. I think Google needs to try harder to keep spammers off of Blogspot. Anyway, The Heavy Blinkers have finally released HEALTH! You should go to www.theheavyblinkers.com to download it! More updates coming soon (after I figure out a solution to my spam problem) - Eric W
