My brother told me about a professor who was making this speaking tour, talking about the research done into AIDS and HIV and they had come to the conclusion that HIV does not turn into AIDS, that in fact AIDS was the result of side effects of drug medleys given to treat HIV.   Interesting to think about, gives more weight to Zappa's views on all dem fagnits dropping off like flys in the mumf of NOVEMBER!   Could be when all the doctors out there got their shipment of Galoot Cologna.

The only dissapointing thing about this album was that I had heard the live 84 Evil Prince before buying Thing-Fish, I thought I was in for the ultimate masterwork to blow JOe's Garage out of water!!!  It was not that, but I loved it anyway.

I don't get the whole "OMG IT REHASHES SONGS" isn't that the point ? don't modern musicals use popular music within their pieces... Just think of stuff like We Will Rock You with the music of Queen. Thats what Thing - Fish is satirising just with the music of Zappa. The album works on alot of different levels. <br><br>I don't listen to the album alot, but i enjoy it very much. I never understood why it attracts such debate either.

I got the reply, "Nothing! It's Andrew Lloyd Webber! We're only supposed to marvel at the production!" Perfect. That was a bull's-eye that not only hit the "sacred-cow" Webber dead-on but "Bbbbbrrroadway" and its boring, bland lameness as well. But the robots think it's great! (And you can't expect to fuck with them and get away unscathed. ::) )<br><br>Batchain
