Dont hold your breath mate. I had hair down to my ass when the Roxy Trailer first appeared on the old site. Now I'm as bald as a baby! I'll probably be eligable for a state pension before it ever goes into production.  ;D :'(

You know, I've always wondered on the Roxy Trailer where they show the band-member's names, why isn't Jeff Simmons listed (or shown for that matter)? I hope he's in most of the film. That guy is awesome, when it comes to the Flo & Eddie band, I prefer the lineup w/ Simmons/Duke.<br><br>I've seen the True Story Of 200 Motels with the "Dummy Up" segment. It's even funnier to watch.

Which means there's only about a 2 hour or 2 and a half hour film.<br><br>As for what happened to it: we don't know. The ZFT have said that they wanted to wait and do a high-definition transfer of the footage. The footage and audio also has to be edited, and the audio has to be mixed to 5.1. We'll have to wait a while for the thing to even be finished.

For now you'll just have to try and find an illicit version of Uncle Meat (unless you can find an online E-bay used copy, which I hear can be pretty pricey).    I lent mine out last year, and the guy dissapeared with it!  FUCK!   it was a boot anyways, but fuck!    It should get the DVD treatment eventually, ZFT does own it outright, unlike 200 Motels.     I'm hoping that the Uncle Meat DVD will take a LONG time to come out so that they have ample time to add some tasty extras, like the complete Albert Hall show!  YOWZA!!!!!

Frankly, after six years of waiting, I don't care anymore. Nice if it will ever see the light of day, too bad if it wont. Not worth losing sleep over stuff like this...<br><br>Of course I'd be first in line to buy it, though..

[quote author=andre_cholmondeley link=board=rant;num=1138815714;start=0#10 date=02/04/06 at 12:33:47]In a world (or even on a site) where the principals gave a rat's ass about what the paying fans cared...there would by now be a quick, cogent explanation of where/when/how you will get this DVD, from those in control.[/quote]<br><br>Of course the ZFT gives a rat ass about us. If they didn't give a rats ass about us, they'd release nothing (which is less than what we deserve). <br><br>They just want to give us the highest quality version of this material possible. They know that we've been waiting for years, so they want to make us happy by presenting the programme with the best picture/audio quality possible (hence, the high-definition transfer).<br><br>If you want to speed up the process, send 'em a check for a few million dollars. Be sure to get them to give you a portion of the profits from the DVD sales. ;D

Are you afraid that ol' Frankie's music won't have staying power?<br><br>Every once in awhile, someone discovers a partial manuscript from Beethoven or Mozart ... not very often, but once in awhile.<br><br>Zappa has staying power.  His family is counting on it.  They are right.

On a scale from zero to ten, zero is obviously nothing and one could be rat's ass, which is more than nothing but not much. I'm not saying that the ZFT either doesn't or does give a rat's ass but either choice is not much. Now, if they gave a rat's tomago ...<br><br>I don't know what the ZFT is really up to, so I won't speculate, but I wish others who also know fuck all about it would also not speculate.<br><br>Tuco, right on, Zappa will prevail, I have no doubt and no end of tid bits will make any difference to that.
