Wow, this place really fizzles into long stretches of boredom sometimes. I'm not into complaining about the ZFT, but I notice there has hardly even been a peep about a supposed certain announcement. Is everyone on leave, or sick, or something?

A birthday suprise announcement on the 21st maybe? The calm before the storm? One can dare to hope.Happy Zappadan poly. 8) :)
Back on topic,
Rumours,The New Fleetwood Mac. Pretty much everything after Peter Green left the Mac.
and The Long And Winding Road sucks.The BeaTles were OK,but the new Mcartney blows.

Yes, all the winos are now at DweezilZappaWorld. And I'm looking here several times per day, but if your life is boring and miserable that doesn't do much good either.

Good call, Sam. Particularly New Kid In Town and Heartache Tonight.

I'd like to add every song by U2 to the list.

Oh, and Kashmir, Black Dog, Whole Lotta Love and Rock and Roll by Led Zeppelin.

And everything by solo Sting.

Bryan Adams. Every time he learns a new chord he cuts another album. I hate that.

But "cuts like a knife" is such a brilliant lyric, brilliant metaphor. I don't think that had ever been used before until he thought of it. I mean, cuts like a knife, because you know, nothing really cuts like a knife except a knife when you think about it. Pure genius. :wink:

Bryan got the 'Big Book of Tired Cliches' as a child that has been his sole inspiration for all these years.

yes, a conundrum. but it's also massively overplayed, at least in these parts.

Yeah. The classic rock radio stations around here must have the same playlist as the one in rex begonia. The classic rock overplay award for me goes to anything by Boston. Gee, didn't those guys put out like two records in a ten year period during their heyday and they get played as much or more than Led Zeppelin. :?

You should be grateful that you live in an area where anybody massively overplays Zappa!
Don't tell me the DJs have taste where you live; I always thought that the term radio and taste were mutually exclusive! :wink:

unfortunately i was referring to the song "sweet home alabama". i feel really bad that i ruined your dream of a land where zappa is massively overplayed on the radio. but better that you know the hard bitter truth. :cry:

Must be something missing in the translation as Caputh is usually on top of things.

Nice to hear I'm usually on top of things - in this case I wasn't; I confused Sleeping in a Jar with Quilt. Quite why I did this is beyond me. Apologies. :oops:

IMO if you can make at least one totally awesome joke with it, there's no need to erase it from history:
