You people are still waiting for these DL's? It was nice thought and gesture by DZ, but he should have known the amount of work it would take to fully tweak all these releases to make them album quality is beyond comprehension. They should have done like everyone else does nowdays, 24-48 hours of touch-up and done.

Dont make promises you cannot keep. Or will take you years to fulfill. Sounds like something else doesn't it?(::cough cough:: ROXY!)

Yes I quite agree. I would have made an effort to see the last tour, but I really don't care anymore. I figure if I get my download, great, if not, I'll spend my money on FZ releases and that's it. ZPZ or DZPZ is just another cover band to me. Sort of like if the offspring of the beatles get together to play Beatles songs, its not the Beatles, is it?

I think people are being way too hard on Dweezil, and I'm sick of them joking about not getting their downloads. Give the guy a break, he's incredibly busy!

By the way, I hear if the downloads are released this year, Dr Pepper will give everyone a free can of Dr. Pepper.

I'm sure you meant this with humor, but this whole download thing has become a fucking joke. He promised there would be updates on his website, but not since Dweezil Zappaworld went live. I don't care how busy he is, he made a commitment to those of us who attended those shows back in 2008 for Christ sakes. It's now 2010! What the fiuck?

I am not sure what website you visit but your comment leaves me to conclude you have
not given due diligence in the matter that Dweezil had addressed at DweezilZappWorld.


Considering the topic here which states "Time to stop being nice"
you may not have noticed additional updates/comments Dweezil had made because you are focused with negativity
here instead of spending time in that community where DZ and community members were active in
discussing some more details in various related threads on the issue at hand.

Now you see it , Now you don't ....
but in the end the original YCFOSA Download Info he published is all that is necessary.
So if you think Dweezil promised updates and that has not been delivered you are grossly mistaken.

Trend,

Thank you for sharing but I have given his web site "due diligence". I know what I read on there and keep checking out his YCFOSA area. The message hasn't changed since the first one. I'm really not that negative and I'm quite sure DZ is buzy. I really don't have the time or patience to check on a daily basis. I hope you are right and we'll get the best sounding downloads from him. I posted my message mainly because this topic was being used as a place where jokesters like to play and was getting off target. If you hear anything that our shows are iminent, please post it here.

Dear Crybabies:

SHUT THE FUCK UP ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!

You're all such pussies that you probably bathe with vinegar and water. I haven't seen such a collection of bellyaching twats since the last time I attempted to see through a Republican National Convention broadcast.

Me personally, I'd rather wait for a good mix than get a so-so mix right away.

When is Dweezil gonna rewrite "The Real Frank Zappa Book" word for word? That should be worth at least 80 bucks a book. Zappa writes Zappa!

:) I'm glad you laughed.

But seriously, you'd pay 80 dollars for the Zappa writes Zappa book, wouldn't you?
What if he put a fur replica of the Zappa 'stash and beard on the book cover? Or a bonus chapter with the words "wonderment" and "extravaganza" in it?

I'm guessing the download show idea was well intentioned but just not planned well enough and sometimes you just cannot factor in the things that happen along the way. Divorce and things cropping up. Zappa fans are indeed rabid in many ways so I can understand the grumbling. I have decided though that I have no control over it so why keep myself all apeshit and pissed.

Dweezil had it all handed to him. Every single note. He never had to create anything original to be noticed. He's spoiled. Good for him. I have never given him a cent for anything except for his dad's recordings. I can't believe he gets away with charging what he does for his clone music. It's hilarious.
