This is SO wonderful! Congratulations to my friend Howie Kittelson and his lovely bride to be Miss Vee Ra!

Listen in to the HeadRush Show this Sat. night at https://weru.org/ to be a part of this amazing celestial union of love. *I'm a dancing fool right now!*
This has been a particularly hard year, I lost many people very close to me making this season hard on myself and my family but I wanted to say this time of year also reminds me of just how wonderful life is and to enjoy each and every single moment, as if this is our last. That being said I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Festivus and Happy Winter Solstice. If you don't celebrate any of those holidays well, I hope you have a wonderful day too. xoxoxo
I wanted to let you all know a member of our community has passed away. I'm not sure how active he was here but he was one of the biggest Zappa fans I know and he was such a sweetheart. We were friends outside of this site over on FB, although we had never met face to face I considered him to be a true friend and kindred soul. He passed away in his sleep quietly with no more pain.

Coming closer y'all...if only we could get a Philly proper date. I can't remember the last time they played in Philly, has ZPZ ever played Philly????
I am smack dab in the ground zero area for Frankenstorm. We are prepared as prepared can be for this although I have a feeling this is going to be much worse than anyone can even begin to imagine. Please send me all your good vibes, light and love. I'll try to keep posting as much as I can until we lose power. The storm is looking to really kick into me in about 4 hours. http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2012/10/26/us/hurricane-sandy-map.html More good links for those of us that are in her path which is me and about 60 million other people. http://google.org/crisismap/sandy-2012
I just got the news today that the murderer of my dear cousin Ricky has been charged with first degree murder which in the state of PA carries the death penalty...I don't know how I am supposed to feel about this, it doesn't change the fact that he took him from us and I miss him so much. Today also would have been his 51st birthday. I'm so sad and empty without him.

WAHAHAH...know you all know exactly why I am the way I am, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Look what I got from my parents for my birthday today!! http://youtu.be/yObCzh56u_M
My horoscope for today, I couldn't have said it better myself. Virgo Let nature takes its course today -- there's just no use struggling against it! Your energy is better kept in reserve for when things start to get crazy again. You can wait out this phase for a bit longer.
one door closes and another always bursts wide open...thank you.
I'm sorry and sad to say I just came from the hospital and had to say my goodbyes to my couisn. There is nothing more to be done and he is not expected to make it much longer. Thank you all for your thoughts, light and love.
Due to my personal family emergencies I have to sell my tickets to the July 19th show in Morristown, New Jersey. They are spectacular seats, 4th row center Orchestra B seats 113 and 114. I'm just looking for the cost and service fees which came to approx.92 a ticket. If anyone wants them please message me. Thanks in advance as I'm needing the cash for traveling back and forth to the hospital. here is a link to the seating chart for the venue. http://mayoarts.org/Images/Seating-Chart-New-for-Web-(color).jpg

Turns out it's just a twisted knee with a side of sprained ankle and a dash of a broken toe. Looks like there WILL be dancing at the opcoming ZPZ shows. :-)
This has been a fairly crappy day with a side of twisted/sprained ankle.
In case anyone would like to have a look around one of the coolest record stores out there, I shot a small tour. It's Gold Million Records, which boasts to house one of the largest vinyl Frank Zappa collections on the east coast( yep, it's purrty dang big) AND it is where Cal Schenkel does his in store appearance every year for Record Store Day and more. They are the permanent gallery to a lot of his original work and more. Gold Million Records http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HguoY3xRO1I Here is a link to my photos from iside the store from 2011 when Cal was there as well. http://www.dweezilzappaworld.com/photo_albums/1782/photos They have an online store, I've put the link to it in the description area of the video...I am doing a project with the owners right now, when I have more info to put out there in the cyber world, I'll be sure to let y'all know. :)
