Noticed this earlier today. Held back from commenting because I wanted to let the board members who frequent here a bit more regularly have their first piece of commentary on the video. Having previously noticed where Jayp was asking about "source" the concept of source has truly come full...

Is that guy kidding or what? In regards to conceptual continuity with Ancient Aliens, I would have assumed you were well rehearsed in these matters. To take things a bit further back, during the 71 tour The Mothers were performing the Divan Suite. The concepts within Divan show a clear and concise ...

The setlist reminds us that We Are Not Alone. In the part where they have introduced Sinister Footwear, for my ears, that further adds to the Ancient Aliens aspect of the material. I don't know as of yet what Dweezil is doing with the solo section, but I am sure he will do something amazing,... in t...

I should have asked Joe at the Yogurt show. The vibe was too thick to think about anything but the moment, that night. I've said this before but I rarely if ever ask Joe about what he's been working on in the vault. I like surprises! The vault, ....these FZ, GZ, DZ, and JT productions, they certain...

; ...... I have not been listening since 1968 because I was not born, nor a thought at that point, but that doesn't mean I'm not as big of a fan.... Today, I feel differently. My excitement is gone. I still love FZs music. It's really all I currently listen to and probably always will, but being st...

If I may add upon my hopes of this project evolving. A local based show such as this lends itself to expanding exposure to unique arrangements. For example, the 78' arrangement of Village Of The Sun. If Zappa Plays Zappa were to do a tour that focused on unique arrangements the promoters may have a ...

Would love for this project to evolve. The Strawberry Grade A Net WT Heavy selection of arrangements seemed like a fine beginning. Here's hoping to a wide variety of flavors with CDs and DVDs of for the less fortunate parts of the world.

DZ probably doesn't even know that Trendy comes here and posts negatively against FZ fans. The way a few of the so called fans communicate here at this site I have to wonder if they are even Frank Zappa fans. Did not Frank Zappa and Dweezil Zappa collaborate on Dragon Master. From my memory Dweezil...

Sounds like a cool project. And an extra 1/4 tone fretted (strat) guitar?! I wonder how that'll sound...? Investigating the wonders of the world are a great reason to be alive. While I have yet to have heard what that particular instrument sounds like, back in the early 70s I was listening to Harry...

What about Chalk Pie? What was it?

I've often wondered about the fanatical perception of which The Man From Utopia, Thing Fish and Them Or Us projects were produced. Over the decades many opinions have been offered. In speaking of The Man From Utopia, Thing Fish and Them Or Us, there seems to be some common production element that co...

Food for thought.

At times FZs Conceptual Continuity is quite obvious, at times it requires some research. In this topic at hand, the topic heading is more-so a statement as opposed to asking a specific question of conceptual continuity. EDIT: For even a casual listener it should be obvious that at times, Conceptual ...
