Wilson’s ‘real test’

LOS ANGELES – With a shuffling gait and wearing jeans, sneakers and a blue plaid shirt that matches his eyes, Brian Wilson is at the center of a Hollywood whirlwind. This day, he’s been rushing to screenings, giving interviews and posing for photos at a Los Angeles hotel as his new biopic prepares to hit theaters.

Ambitious biopic tells Wilson story

Brian Wilson’s life is too big for a movie. The story of the brilliant and troubled co-founder of the Beach Boys barely lends itself to a coherent linear narrative, let alone a single film. Thankfully “Love & Mercy” doesn’t attempt to cover it all, or even most of it. Instead, director Bill Pohlad’s film focuses in on two moments in Wilson’s life: One of creation and destruction, as Wilson conceives of the group’s transformative “Pet Sounds” album, and one of rebirth two decades later.

Huckleberries: Take the candy to the bathroom, go directly to jail

There aren’t many candy bars out there worth a misdemeanor shoplifting citation, let alone a felony charge. Maybe a Snickers. Or a giant peanut butter cup. But not much else. Which makes Huckleberries wonder about the 72-cent candy bar from Post Falls Super 1 that landed a woman back in the county jug last week. According to Post Falls police, the woman gobbled the candy bar in the store bathroom and then paid for other items before leaving the store. When she was nailed by store security for stealing the candy bar, she lied about her name. Why? She told security that she had been released from jail that morning – and had been warned by a judge that she would be charged with a felony next time she was caught stealing. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. Bikini weather?
