...so I am at my desk the other day when a temp in Account's Payable comes over with a problem invoice. As we are looking at it - an email comes in from the Zappa forum on a subject I was tracking. She (only 29 years old) says I am a Zappo's girl too. I was hearing Zappa not Zappo's. After some very akward minutes I learned she was talking shoes while I was talking about the greatest composer/guitar player ever...Was SHOCKED me is that she had NEVER heard of Frank Zappa. I tried to explain. She asked what songs he was famous for. I thought the two she might have heard would have been Valley Girl or Don't Eat the Yellow Snow.

Nothing - blank.

She thought for a minute and asked - does e do songs like Grandma Got Run Over By A Raindeer?

If she's a Zappo's Girl, then she is a Valley Girl!

So, if you don't listen to what a previous generation listened to, then you're ignorant?

Hate to break this to you, but hardly anyone in the previous generation listened to it either...
