I think you need a vegetable to hold your hand and help get you through the night. <br><br>Or maybe you need the vegetable with the joint! ;D

that brings on another question - what vegetable would you prefer to hold your hand through the night? would definately have to be a potato. i don't need joints to let this  happen - it's all natural!  8)<br><br>Dear Noah: i have some clarity for you!!! ;D<br>"jsdhfjishugiahgjifhaugifheigdrhfuidgfhdui"<br><br>are eggplants aubergines? i want to hear the story behind that!

well mr central scrutinizer - you are a fountain of useful information! have you ever tried using potato to relieve your mind?<br>the album is really good-  but i don't have the lp, so maybe i'm missing out.  :'(<br>are there any other vegetables that could help us? maybe the odd celery stick?

Are there really many differences between the lp and cd?    because the cd version does not sound like the mixing has been updated at all!

Two days a week I work in a 'High Fidelity' kind of store, called 'Egg Records'. Yesterday, while I'm tidying up the 'soul' section, I see, out of the corner of my eye, a little old man holding a Zappa album. It's Absolutely Free, a first US pressing on the Verve label, and I'm pretty excited; we've got $50 (Australian) on it; that's a pretty big one-off sale, and although hardcore fans are willing to make such a purchase, such fans rarely happen to be little old men.<br><br>A little while later, the old man comes up to the counter holding a record in each hand. He brings the Zappa album forward and drawls, in an old man kind of drawl, "this one says 'Absolutely Free'."<br><br>"I'm sorry, Sir," I reply, as straight-faced and polite as possible, "that is in fact the title of the album." I point to the price tag, to show him as I tell him that it actually says fifty dollars.<br><br>So he hands the record to me. He doesn't want it at that price. He only wants it if it is absolutely free. <br><br>"What about this one?" he drawls, proffering the record in his other hand. It turns out to be a Tom Waits album… the one called Small Change.<br><br>Before he can whip out some pocket shrapnel, I let him know that once again, 'Small Change' is the album title, and rather than forty-five cents, or thrupence, or whatever jangly combination happens to reside his coin pocket, the price is seventeen dollars.<br><br>I guess, I'm just glad he hadn't picked up a copy of that live charity album that the Oxbridge mafia comedians like the Pythons and Peter Cook and Alan Bennet recorded for Amnesty International in the mid-70s. <br><br>Its cover says 'A Poke In The Eye (With A Sharp Stick)'!<br><br> :P
