Lake Tahoe's so clear you can see them waving their arms frantically at 80ft below the surface. Well not so frantic at that depth maybe, but they really go fast down to 30 ft. or until their little bubbles start coming up and they go limp.

Any Gail wonders why people can't stand her! I've never seen a vault with so much material, and potential for release, and making a family money, wasted!

Come on Gail, open up the floodgates!

You would think by now they would have got the hint that maybe they're really not that good at business.


I think they've known this all along, it's we fans who are slow on the uptake. That was one of the reasons for the RBP deal: GZ wanted us to see how hard it was getting this stuff together. Now we'll never find out if she was right or not :wink:

Right about what? That it's hard to release something?

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a person with the answers over there
Sometimes it seems they're business unaware

We should start a pool for the actual ship date,
I'm throwing my guess at Nov 28, 2014.

^ That would be cool if it came out on Penguins b-day. Well...... if his b-day was tomorrow it would be cool.

I can't fool myself into believing that my excitement about this release does not diminish with each passing day. It's almost as if it has been released already and I've devoured it and now I'm moving on. Waiting for a full '75 Beefheart show, now. Or at least a decade of teasers for it.

While some wallow in some emotional regalia of dwindling excitement, I must boldly proclaim (Roxy by Proxy "the prequel to yer ackshul movie") that my interest in this project is something I hold steadfast passion for. I am forever mindfull that the ackshul movie (Keyword IS) IS AMAZING!

The evolution will be what it will be. I sit back and relax, knowing well that when these peojects play in my home, and but also, a movie theatre, that I will enjoy. Whereby not only enjoying all big note aspects of the composer, and but also, casting out any depraved abandonment of a very small portion of a so-called fanbase gone sour.

This is understandable, since you are the numero uno sycophant. Just pare down your posts from now on to "They can do nothing wrong and I'll never complain."

There is not a dust spec of sycophantical ideology to a glass half full ideology. The long history of complaints by so-called Zappa fans clearly show that overt fawning of complaints is what I am glad to not be a part of. Some folks like to complain, that ideology has never been my way of life. Each man picks his own actions.

When it comes to official projects in the can that I am awating rlease, I remain steadfast with a glass half full ideology.

Forever the Optimist is my way of life.

Twice in the same fucking paragraph... Trendy, I know that you seem to relish at the thought of descending from whatever ideological paradise you reside in to grace us with your unchanging, one-dimensional, singular point-of-view on all things FZ or otherwise... But if you could just fuckin' cut out that "and but also," shit, seeing your posts would feel less like stumbling across a human turd on a perfectly manicured lawn, and more like stumbling upon a dog turd or something typical (I'm basically saying your posts are turds on the lawn of this forum).
