I don't give two stinky tootsies WHAT Drifty says, he is the most wonderful there is.

Oh, and before I forget. Anyone else who wants to write a post for Frank in honor of Zappadan (ooh you can be just like Driftglass!), the details are here at the blog The Aristocrats.

We were going along okay, and i was starting to sing along, just a little, but then we kind of ran out of days of Zappadan, so I kind of understand how the Muslim kids feel when they open their Ramadan stocking on the seventeenth or eighteenth day of Ramadan and find nothing there but emptiness.

Driftglass, you're a man after my own heart. Zappa and Tom Waits are my two favorite composers/musicians/entertainers of all time.

I miss Frank so much, especially in these turbulent times. There's never been another one like him. Fortunately, he put out enough material in his horribly foreshortened life that I'll be able to hear new and interesting things in his music for the rest of my life. But I need MORE!

Why oh why does the Zappa Family Trust refuse to release more of his archived material? It's killing me! There's a ton of film and video footage they have of the early 70s bands, and they won't relese it.

Back in 1986, only one saw the Theocratic Fascists coming.

Btw, Assclowns of the Week is back. In #52, we review the idiocies of George Bush, "Sixteen Words" Hadley, Steve King, Mort Kondracke, the Atlanta PD and much, much more!

I want to take this opportunity to post again my favorite Zappa quote:

"Remember, there's a big difference between kneeling down and bending over."---from "Heavenly Bank Account" :)
