Love and Mercy


Like, uh...

like voices in your head?


Well, kind of. Yeah.

Maybe I'm cuckoo

for Cocoa Puffs!

Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!

It was kinda scary.

I think it's just Dad. You know?

Messing with your head.

We're too big for him to

take the belt to us anymore,

so he's gotta use his black

magic shit or something.

- Ah, come on.

- It's not Dad.

- Yeah...

- Something's off.

It's being on the road.

You know, being up there.

It's freaky.

I get nervous onstage, too, Bri.

- I mean, we all probably do.

- No, but this is different.

Anyway, you don't need me

standing up there

looking like a jerk.

I'll be better

back here at home.

Making music.

I just wanna be home.

I got all kinds of new ideas,

new sounds,

new harmonies,

new instruments.

You hear the new Beatles?

- Yeah.

- The "Rubber Soul"? Yeah.

I heard it was about

John Lennon having an affair.

It's amazing!

I mean, it works like a whole.

It's like a whole album.

Everything fits together,

no fat.

Like an album of folk songs, but

the sounds are really far out.

- Lots of overdubbing.

- They stole our backing vocal.

And then they change it to,

I thought it said, "Tit,

tit, tit, tits, titties."

- No?

- Denny.

We can't let them

get ahead of us!


I can take us further.

If you let me

stay at home in the studio.

It's what I need to do.

And I promise,

when you come back,

I will have stuff for you

that will blow your minds.

- Bri! - Fine, but you just

keep your head on straight.

- Okay, Bri?

- I will!

- Hey, Brian!

- I will.

Straight as a die.

Hey, straight as a what?

What does that even mean?

You're gonna die

in a straight line?

I have no idea.

I heard Dad use it once.

Oh, never use it again.

It's gonna be strange to be in

Japan without you, brother.
