Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.

You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.

Tobacco is my favorite vegetable.

Government is the Entertainment Division of the military-industrial complex.

Tax the FUCK out of the churches!

Ha. Letterman didn’t have enough time to talk to Frank because of Pee Wee. Something ironic about free speech.

There’s also that interview on Youtube (I can’t remember which one) where he talks about his part in the downfall of the Berlin Wall. It was something like him joking that he should/could/would become America’s representative for some talks and the East Germans and Russians didn’t know who he was and actually got him involved. It was something bizarre like that.

There’s a public bust of Zappa in Vilnius (or maybe Riga – I think it’s Vilnius), sponsored and erected by some local fan club.

I guess Zappadan runs Dec 4 until Dec 21.

Watched great movie Frank Zappa 2020 documentary produced by his son. Great documentary but seems could not capture the vastness of this man’s life.

He had like 60 albums before he died. I’ve only been aware of Zappa but didn’t really know his music so I said Hey Google play some Frank Zappa music and found gems like Willie the Pimp, Cosmic Debris, Watermelon in Eastern Hay. I’m sure there are more.
