In this thread I'll ask Gail a question every day. Just to see if she'll respond, and to get to know her better. I'm not going to ask about any releases or ZFT business. If you have a question you'd like asked, please PM me.

April 1, 2008 Question:

Does anybody now or ever call you by your given first name? I have a friend that's only known by his first name, and I wondered the same about you.

Gail: If Frank had been just a lovable guy with a normal job, do you think the division of labor in your family would have been acceptable to you? From the outside looking in, one assumes you mostly raised the kids and ran the house, in happy recognition that his enormous talent and drive trumped a less traditional way of life? Does genius require that of family and friends?

Unfortunately, I admit I DID read the intent of the post, but in a moment of indiscretion, I went along with the mob mentality. I regret it though. Sorry Cal. :oops:

Anybody who starts a thread on this forum and thinks they can keep it to themselves is seriously deluded. Hey, Cal, it's a forum not a dating site.

Being that this topic started on April 1st I hesitated before pooting forth with a see "Call Any Vegetable" but after seeing George Carlin's It's Bad For Ya the so called Vegetabalism of America brings new thoughts to mind when I hear the phrase God Bless America. Fanaskeptasaureous Vegetablism where they think the actions of ZPZ & the ZFT are cause for complaints at times have a most striking resemblance. What's next God Bless the Roxy DVD.

While Frank was eager to point out the mindless questions, questions, questions, flooding into the minds of the concerned young persons(consumers) today after hearing George Carlin joke of how obnoxious it would be for God to play favorites in blessing America over the other 200 countries I really have to wonder how ignorant, ignorant ignorant the average American is to the problems of humanity where their greed, power, hate and cruelty is the common patriotic thread. As the song goes Ah, but it's a great time to be alive, ladies and gentlemen.With ZPZ and the Vault moving along I for one am quite thrilled but some still have audacity to complain.

I question the analogy of how obnoxious Fortune 100 or Worldly Bilderberg perpetuated greed with their me, me, me commercialism of spreading the ideology of bigger trucks with more power relates to fans who care more about consuming as much of the Zappa vault and as fast as possible while displaying little concern for artistic integrity and the overall vault life sustainable resources.

It's obvious that these Vaulternative releases show a concern for Green Awareness of earthly and universal domains. While the art is somewhat fixed in it's resources the fans treat it like some Carbon Based Fuel wanting to fill their HUMMERs with Zappa Lighter And Sweeter Crude Oil instead of a clean and renewable energy source.

The way I see it the ZFT are dealing with projects very much in the same manner that Frank had. Many works in progress. The return on investment on any given or a set of projects goes into the over work in progress scheme.
