    I definitely recognize the hat and shirt that Dweezil is wearing.

    To clarify the "pic" AF Dianora posted. That is from the closing credit segment of Roseanne: Season 6, Episode 22 "I Pray The Lord My Stove To Keep" There is a great line that John Goodman delivers during the dinner blessing in that episode "yes lord the chicken is particularly good".

    Also of note in the episode  "Busted" Roseanne: Season 6, Episode14, In this Episode Ahmet Zappa is a guest. His room has an FZ "WE ARE WHAT WE WATCH"  Honker Home Video Poster , after the closing credits there is a Full Screen dedication that reads F.Z.  R.I.P.

    i stumbled over this on netflix looking for the 1960s mothers documentary; an unusual guest appearance

    I did get a chance to see all the Normal Life episodes. I think DZ & MZ had a great concept that the producers of the show molded into their own vision rather than taking the original concept that DZ & MZ had envisioned. It was a fun show but unfortunately the network had little to no drive as it was up against stiff competition from NBC. 1 season 13 episodes.... well it deserved more.

    Matt, that would be cool but I doubt it will ever happen.

    I've always thought it's a shame there is no DVD compiling all the Dweezil and Z stuff, as well music videos as shows....

    I have the Normal Lifes all on video. I used to watch them all the time. It was cute.

    Anyone remember the sitcom "Normal Life" circa right before "Confessions" hit? They always had a segment where Dweezil would be in his bedroom giving guitar lessons to some kid. I remember really liking the theme music Dweezil had composed too. He and Moon Unit were pretty funny from what I remember. I wish they would release that on DVD.

    I agree with George T: " Confessions " really knocked the wind out of me. I didn't really know Dweezil's stuff. I knew he worked with my idol at the time--Eddie Van Halen. But Dweezil and " Confessions " were my first true Zappa experiences. After that, it was all Frank and Dweezil. Via a friend, I did have FZ's " Sheik Yerbouti " before. But it was a copy from vinyl. Dweezil really impressed me and I set to learn some of the songs from " Confessions. " Just a great album. In my top twenty favorite CDs of all time!
