I've been doing a little contemplating of late. Where in respect that it's a great time to be alive. Everyone that wakes up, to a certain extent, we are fortunate to have this day. May we all make the best of our opportunity. No matter how big our problems may be, we are lucky to have this day. Now ...

I wanted to take a brief moment and pass a few short comments. Firstly, thank you to the kind folks that have showed sincerity towards what me and my family are going through with my youngest daughter(7yo) having Epilepsy. I very much appreciate when people discuss their views and raise attention to...

Mr Gary Titone has been posting on certain topics on the FZ Kickstarter. He's doing okay. https://www.kickstarter.com/profile/1536860793 Oh, tough call for him. The Vaultmeister or Dweezil? He chose the former. So that will probably be the end of having him checking sonics in the room before ZPZ sh...

Shit, those two couldn't even bother to sing their parts properly when they sat in with ZPZ. Who're they trying to kid? I was at the ZPZ concert in Bearsville when Flo & Eddie were special guests, I recorded an HD video document of the event. In all honesty I have cared not to even revisit the ...

If I first may state that I am heartwarmed, and but also, concur with the positive response to the family's statement regarding the passing of Gail Zappa. I for one am of opinion, that in a given respect, it is not so much a passing but entering into a realm of eternity. While we say goodbye to her ...

As I don't spend large sums of time searching or reading the forum I'd like to pass a brief comment on the trailer. It's not as if I am trying to bend anyones opinion, I'd suspect some may be wondering of who did the dialogue for the Roxy The Movie Trailer. If it has been spoken about, very well for...

Hope you enjoy the California shows.

I guess my question is what does this actually mean? Joe's Garage, the Musical? That high school play that Ben was in? When speaking of Frank Zappa's Joe's Garage, I never saw any evidence that it was written as a High School Musical. Since I don't have the official documents in hand from the offic...

BUT one thing that bugs me a bit is GZ's liner notes? Firstly I'll politely state that I find your commentary disrespectful to not only the composers intent, but the lengths at which Gail goes to to help protect, not only his work, but other endangered living things and artists works. While Frank Z...

In listening to The Ascolta Ensemble's live recording of Frank Zappa's Overture To Uncle Sam I am amazed at not only their abilities, and but also, the larger picture of what FZ may have had in store with Uncle Sam . As a side note, the youtube clip of their performance of Reagan At Biburg also give...

I'm on about my seventh or eigth run through now, and I am loving it. I've been looking forward to hearing this since I first realised it was even a thing (1995?1996?) and it's a real pleasure. I love it. Frank's synclavier music is my favourite of all his ouvres. When speaking of Franks' so called...

Wow. I just listened to the whole thing again. This thing sounds so dated and is boring as fuck. I'll more than likely never listen to it again. Can't say that I am at all surprised that you feel this way. Seeing you walk away from your seat during ZPZs performance of Status Back Baby was a thought...

I agree. But you guys are wrong trying to convince the non-syncavlier lovers that they are going to like this. I'm puzzled as to why anyone would need to stand up on the pulpit and convince anyone of the mere fact that FZs Synclavier was nothing short of the finest digital orchestra of it's time. F...

Yep. Just shut up and play your CD. Put your finger on the button. Don't say nothin'. No matter how bad it is, it's good. No matter how good it is, it's no better, or worse, than every other piece of music he performed. It's all one big performance piece, and can only be treated as one song. So kee...

Last comment I am going to make here. In my deepest sincerity I am having a Yogurt craving, but there is definitively headroom differences in Analogue to Digital transfers that use a high end AD/DA converter such as the Meitner Mark II A/D converter as compared to when analogue to digital transfers ...

Its stupid to think that the headroom of an analog track changes when dubbed to digital. You are clearly missing the point. Headroom on Digital Transfers in 2015 is different than when digital transfer technology first was being done. I am not saying there is an improvement in the original analogue...
