Oh God, well even attempts at humor appear to be a threat.

Where's Ruben?

I hope not. I also hope that Joes Garage 30 is coming around somewhen near-ish the actual release date - early 2010 would be very nice -- I'm just reflecting bulk-ordering Philly, Joe 30 and Ruben . . . . drooool :)

But then, maybe that's not a good idea, 'cause them f'#@ing custom idiots might charge the hell out of me

I vote for an album cover for the Ruben 40th P/O that says: "TRENDMONGER'S A TOOL!!!"

Well obviously you have used your own TOOL to open yourself a new asshole.
Don't get me wrong over the last several years Ike has been doing some interesting solos
that are performed in that general vein of an FZ Air Sculpture.

In regards to that when Ike is time and time again in that bar band scenario
that he operates in that solo vehicle that Frank never gave him that chance
while he can remind one of that In The Ball Park Air Sculpture to state Ike Willis
is THE CLOSEST to playing like Frank PHEW the shit that is coming from your own
self tooled new asshole really stinks. That in the ball park cover band that he plays
with has their own website, please take your views there.

He was the longest running band member in Zappa bands;
he's "Joe" & "THING-FISH", he has a great voice,
when you hear him play guitar it is like listening to the closest thing to FZ himself.

Don't mess with the Mammy Nun; messin' wit de ZYPH'LISS

So if this is released, why was Absolutely Free skipped?

With 7787 posts I really have to wonder what your motive is of asking this question.
Do you really not get the general gist that a 40tieh celebration for that lacked
unique unreleased material from the original recording sessions.
In looking how MOFO & Lumpy Money was done that kind of making of celebratory material
and or how post period productions of material are included just may have not factored into a worthwhile or even existing possibility.

Motive? I'm curious, that's why. MOFO, Lumpy Money, and Ruben....why not Absolutely Free?

Really I could only wonder that a question only seeming ignorant was possibly pushing a non agenda issue.
I would have thought a forum member with our amount of posts knew the answer well.
So let's say you are a tad bit ignorant of the reasoning as to why we never got one with Absolutely Free.
The answer is lack of unique studio and additional live material from that period to produce one.
I hope this helps you.
Peace

I naively keep hoping that he will one day have a blinding insight and change his ways. I naively hope for peace in the Middle East too.

I didn't know, and you didn't have to insult me to give me the answer. Am I supposed to know everything because I post a lot?

Hey it is quite not my objective to insult you here.
When I saw that question I could only wonder why you were asking it.
Sometimes people do plead ignorant to push agendas.
If someone spends that much time here having close to 8,000 posts
surely one would expect by now in 2010 they have some general knowledge
that the Absolutely Free period lacks the feasibility quotient the way MOFO had.
By now I thought it was fairly common knowledge that Zappa fans understand such.
Obviously some do not so hopefully you have seen the light.
If you want to remain offended so be it.

When I am in the wrong and at times I certainly have been in the wrong where
I have taken things for granted thinking I am right but I am blatantly wrong I am glad I get corrected.
It is unfortunate that some feel the need to wave a flag of animosity towards me day after day,
year after year. Many have been far from nice when correcting me anbd they just ride that wave of just
about anything towards me. I have put up with insults towards me as much as anyone.
I don't think the behavior stems from my tree and they hang that over my head with extreme animosity for very long periods of time.
I have no agenda of hanging anything over your head. If you now see something you had not
good for you. I don;t think you will be getting a 40Tieth Absolutely Free. Not Feasible.

Its a New Year folks, lets make a resolution - first Trendy:

Stop being so wordy. Say whatever you want to say in as few words as possible, you will get less flak.
