    Just got tickets for ZPZ on April 2, Mississauga Ontario.  The ticket agent knew nothing about the pre-show guitar clinic. Will we be told about this at a later date, separately?

    For those who have gone to the pre-show guitar clinic, how long does it typically last? I assume we show up at the show venue and are directed to a secret room somewhere?  I've seen a couple excerpts on Youtube ... what is Dweezil's taping policy?

    "Listen to the moonlight bouncing off a rotten carcass..."

    As we know from Frank's autohagiography, The film, "Run Home, Slow" 1965, was directed by former high school teacher Don Cerveris with original score composed and conducted by Frank Zappa.

    Check out this dried movie remnant:

    It wasn't even Frank's movie, yet the conceptual continuity is astounding.  Yes, that is what would later become "Duke of Prunes" in the background! A hint of religiosity, dopey hunch-backs, sex as great fun or awful "sin" ... It's all there!

    Did FZ have his entire body of work trapped in his head in the beginning, and spend forty years trying to let it out? The more you dig, the more interconnections you find ... as Monty Python said during the Gumby sketch, "My braaaaain huuuurts!"

    FZ would have been 72 today. Happy Birthday Frank!

    Hi from Omak, WA Chris. Nice to meet you digitally.

    New Reissues?
    I'm getting regular emails from Amazon saying "Just released, Bongo Fury", or "Just Released, Waka jawaka" etc. What's up? Did the regular CD's get moved and reissued on another label? Or have they been reissued and possibly improved, remastered?
