Well, the Zappa-site has (finally) been re-made. It looks pretty good, methinks.
8)
One problem, though, mikey: the 'read more'-links to the articles & interviews don't work.

Thanks for letting me know! Fixing it now! We have a lot more to add to this area and will do so over time...

There may be bits and pieces that have little bugs.. please let me know if you find anything. The site has been living on a test server for a while but it was sometimes tricky to test it in a real-world situation!

Anyway, now that we have a nice clean slate, the site will continue to grow and expand.

Thanks!

I see on the revamped site, I can sign up for the Zappa Mailing list.
Which I did, and saw the notice that I'd recieve a confirmation e-mail.
So far, I've recieved 7 of 'em.
I clicked on 2 of them, each time it took me to the page that tells me I'll be recieving a confirmation e-mail.
Somehow, I get the feeling something isn't quite right....

Hey Mikey....
When you go to the 200 Motels video in the Videography section it comes up with the Hots Rats info.

...and in the discography-section, when you click on 'tinseltown rebellion', you get tracklisting and the musicians, but you also get: the cast for 'joe's garage' and lyrics +track listing for 'studio tan'... :shock:
tinseltown rebellion

haven't found any other 'mistakes' so far... the dicography-section looks great. 8)

Wow... love it. Thanks Mikey!

Glad to see that Buffalo thingy wasn't just a trick of the light, too.

Or was it?

Not that I didn't enjoy reading it again, but thereafter is the libretto for part of Greggery Peccary and the rest of Studio Tan.

YES!

Beautiful new site, Mikey. Glad some of the old stuff made it, like Decoding The Plan.

Hi Dove! A Quicktime upgrade should do the trick for you.

Mikey,
Just inside of a week you and your crew have done an ultra-spiffnificent job with this site and taken it from badly tarnished to resplendent! It sure widened my eyes in amazement. Congrats!
