This is your Brain.
This is your Brain on Zappa.

"Got Me Thinking" by Frankenzappa.
http://www.soundclick.com/Frankenzappa

Frank Zappa did not write "Dead Man's Holiday" by Jay Dyall.
Jay Dyall did. With me so far?

Frank helped me sing and arrange it.

Then, seeing all the stink and hullabaloo you all made,

(by the way, Frank saw the 'toilet award' and said "Lord, I taught them well"
in case you care)

Frank decided he had to make a record that was his, not Jay's.

"Got Me Thinking" is. Frank Zappa wrote and sings most of it,
though I do help with the bridges, 'cause he didn't know what to put
there at the moment and I did.

If Frank's family likes, Dweezil or Ahmet or Moon too for that matter
may cover it, sell it if they want, there his family, they get dibs
on Frank's work with me if they want it.

Otherwise, guess what Ladies & Gentlemen?
The Frank Zappa part of our show is already, oh, yeah.
Almost over. Jay has another Halloween Song, which is too much
a freakin natural for Frank for him to pass on it.

But if you wanted an idea of what Frank Zappa had to say,
"Got Me Thinking" was it.

Now. I'm not going to post here anymore unless I actually get the
idea that you are for real grappling with a difficult to get-your-head-around
concept such as knowing how to allow yourself interaction with the
deceased; I'm well aware that I am the exception, not the rule.

So, let it fade.
I won't keep posting back if you'll let it fade already.

Frank wanted to make a statement.
As he had just helped me make a record for Jay

(which by the way is actually #1, today, Thanks Frank)

What was I gonna tell Frank? No?
Uh, I don't think so.

Lest he send that big scary bald guy after me, Smothers his name was.

Hmm let's see. The ' Les ' person jumps on the scene with a song that was copyrighted in 1997 , the Forum has been around for about 6 yrs. Why are we just now hearing about this miraculous ' channeling ' ? Frank's been dead for what , 10 yrs? Why does this person burst on the scene NOW??? As I stated before, Any Zappa fan worth his salt lives with a " prove it to me " attitude and NEVER takes a side without doing the homework.

So tell me . Les , why now and why should we believe you ?? Walk across my swimming pool , change my water into wine , most of all , PROVE YOURSELF - not mocking...just want more answers ... :?


Why didn't you answer the question?

Because you are a fraud, and full of shit.

Go fuck yourself. You should be ashamed.

You'll be lucky if a Family member doesn't hunt you down and kick the living shit out of you...

This forum seems to attract some real nutcases.

Anyone actually ever think of maybe MODERATING it?

All this spam bullshit, and little pukes who think they know everything about everything.

At least half of the content is bullshit.


No moderation, please. Yes for some frequent maintenance (i.e. deleting spam, maybe some of Batchain's lovely shit pics without early warnings).

There are all sorts of nuttcases here alright. That is why they are called freaks. They [we] must feel home here...

If the guy thinks that he is channeling Frank Zappa's spirit, hey, at least this is the right place to discuss it! :mrgreen:

I'll go with the basic CONCEPT that he THINKS he's channeling Frank. That's ok with me ... heard a lot of weird shit over the years... remember Nancy Raygun consulted higher powers... but to come out and actually state that Frank is among us via this guy is a little over the top IMHO. Harry Houdini might be a better option.

But if this guy wants to associate himself with Frank through some ledgerdemein hocus pocus and have us all believe it... well Les , what did you expect ?? It's not like this is commonplace everyday. But I will give ya credit for compiling some useful musical entertainment......just wish you coud give us some more proof ya know? How bout asking Frank what he and I were talking about before a concert in Phoenix in 1983 ?

THAT would convince me ... in the meantime.... have fun with what you're doing..... just don't get pissed off at us NON-BELIEVERS ..it's the skeptisism , stupid :wink:

You're a sucker, Pedro.

So is anyone else who believes any of this guy's crap.

There has NEVER been any proof that CHANNELING is anything but bullshit.

Where are these people who are being CHANNELED?

Heaven?

Hell?

The world is full of suckers, and channeling is perfect for them.

It provides something they would LIKE to believe is real. The CHANNELERS provide them what they want.

Any channelers ever actually reveal ANYTHING that could prove that channeling is real? Maybe where Jimmy Hoffa is buried, or what happened to Amelia Earheart?

Its bullshit.

Believe in mumbo jumbo if you want, but a FACT or two would be nice, now, WOULD'NT it?

Being ONE who is used to suspending my disbelief,
AND
recognizing that truth is stranger than fiction
AND
being unafraid of being unpopular
AND
somewhat FAMILIAR with the ways that us humans are 'overtaken' with inspiration, when it strikes us (--and the mutability of people's interps of how THAT manifests itself . . .),
I went ahead and checked it out.

and y'know, if 'you got me thinking' appeared as a demo from say, '80-'82, I coulda believed it was 'authentic'. Sounds like it COULD be a zappa song after a few more rehearsals and the right musicians (maybe a few more margaritas). so kudos to the songwriters and the transparency of the ether and the joys of the internet etc. Would it fit alright in a halloween setlist somewhere? Hell ya. Should they put up a link with a flash page on zappa.com? For Halloween? Why not? Would it fit on a Howard Stern show or Dr Demento? You bet!

Am I losing my rational mind?
Are we heading for Armageddon?
When there's no more room in hell, will the dead walk the earth?

Who cares?
We still have Pygmy Twylyte, Titties and Beer, Zomby Woof and Goblin Girl.
Why wouldn't FZ be the Ghosty with the Most-y?
hotcha!

[but just a friendly little warning to the death-obsessed out there . . . they DO suck you in and don't want you to cavort with the living . . . they want more attention than you can give them . . .<insert eyebrows going up and down>]

Candy coat a turd and its still a turd.

People that believe this channeling shit are idiots and the channelers are charlatains.

People have a right to be stupid.

I have a right to think they are stupid.

I have a right to say they are stupid.

You get what I'm THINKIN'?

Who woulda thunk another thread would deteriorate into yet another argument. Chill guys, this is a really controversial topic and I wouldn't say a non believer or a believer was stupid.Personally, I believe there are people who have this "gift", that's not to say I believe everything I'm told by them. If that makes me stupid or naive, then so be it. We all have our beliefs, live and let live eh? 8)

P.S. I think Lesley is a girl, hence - Lesley Jane.

I'm with ya Aspy....talk about de-composing :wink:

He's not hurting anyone so let him have his fun. Now if he ( or she ) starts releasing things under the FZ name.. well , that's another topic.

I can grasp the idea of channeling , astral projection & time travel and some other mysterious ideas that us mere humans can't excersise , and if this guy wants to believe that they have the ' POWER ' , it's ok with me.

I just can't go with the generalization that all of us are stoopid ( according to Zombie ) because of his own tunnel-vision.

Did a vehicle come from somewhere......

It is my opinion that you should fuck off.

It is not a fact.

Channneling is a complete pantload, and any of you dipshits that lend even the slightest bit of credibility to it, are suckers. PT Barnum would love you.

Another little opinion for you....you don't have to be nice all the time. When something is as insane as channeling comes up, why candy coat anything. Its a total crock from the get go, and anyone who says different is fooling themself.

Some of you need to get a grip. Reality is out there for you.....

Please oh please , straighten us all out so that we can , somehow , be almost as smart as you are.

Its all about the proof, needledick.

Where is it?

Because some fruitcake says he has Frank Zappa speaking through, and guiding him does not make it so.

There has never been one fucking shred of evidence that ANY of this so called channeling is anything BUT malarky.

People can wish it were true all they want, but it is only fantasy for the weak minded sheeple.

Oh and BTW:

Beethoven's gone, but his music lives on,
And Mozart don't go shopping no more.
You'll never meet Lizst or Brahms again,
And Elgar doesn't answer the door.

Schubert and Chopin used to chuckle and laugh,
Whilst composing a long symphony.
But one hundred and fifty years later,
There's very little of them left to see.

The decomposing composers,
There's not much anyone can do.
You can still hear Beethoven,
But Beethoven cannot hear you.

Handel and Haydn and Rachmaninoff
Enjoyed a nice drink with their meal.
But nowadays no one will serve them,
And their gravy is left to congeal.

Verdi and Wagner delighted the crowds
With their highly original sounds.
The pianos they play are still working,
But they're both six feet underground.

The decomposing composers,
There's less of them every year.
You can say what you like to them
But there's not much of them left to hear.

Claude Achil Debussy. Died, 1918.
Christoph Willibald Gluck. Died, 1787.
Carl Maria von Weber. Not at all well, 1825.
Died, 1826.
Giacomo Meierbeer. Still alive, 1863.
Not still alive, 1864.
Modest Mussorgsky. 1880, going to parties.
No fun anymore, 1881.
Johann Nepomuk Hummel. Chattin' away 19 'an a dozen with his friends down at
the Pub every evenin', 1836.
1837, nothing.
