That's an interesting question. I can hardly wait to see how Gail answers it (assuming she just doesn't ignore you, that is.) It certainly is the most complicated question posed on this "Daily Question To Gail" thread, so far.

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.


Oh great, Lord King God Idiot has decided to put his two cents in. Or, we need an ark to survive this drool.

Hey, threads over. Everybody ruined it. I'm ashamed to be a posting human being on a forum. This will set me back thousands in therapy. I don't know if I can go on.

Gail,
Is your family still scared of Frank's fans? And if not, WHY?!!

Not a question for Gail but I sent this message to Diva via her Myspace just now...

Would you ever approve a friend request from someone you hadn't met in person just so they could have all 4 of your dad's children's Myspaces in their top 8?

Lord King God , how is your therapy going.

It would be futile for me to get into dialog regarding your comprehention and or ability to discuss these quotes but minimally I wish you good will and leave it at that.

In these troubling economic times I question if you have ever considered saving your money on mental health care and just take the least path of resistance to your problems. I don't know maybe you need those doctors and medications from hell. I wish I could say that the mental health industry had a grasp on these type of problems but from the people I know who have become part of that mental health system be it doctors or patients I really wonder who is more fucked up. Personally I have always found a better way to deal with these form of issues than getting involved but each and every individual I know or have known involved with connection to the mental health industry has serious issues.


Points of View of a forum members should not affect your life but then again when a point of view becomes an attack on an individual person or their business something else always takes over. Good luck with your doctors but Good Lord King God just find a way to be happy while not stepping on someone else business.

Sincerely one of the reasons you convince yourself you need therapy.
