When moving from Sydney to Adelaide in December last year I was under the impression that a cock up had been made with regard to my two Zappa videos, the Uncle Meat movie and The Amazing Mr Bickford and that I had lost them forever. Well, they just turned up the other day, I had quite a moment when I found them. I will be transferring them to digital this weekend. I can't wait to see it again, it is amazing.

Note: For anyone who is readily offended by redundant threads, I did the search and the most recent thread dedicated to The Amazing Mr Bickford was created before the implementation of phpBB2 back on 4th April 2006 and for anyone who doesn't know about that incident, pretty much all threads created before then have incorrect post counts and display with those annoying blank pages at the end.

I've never seen those 2 movies. Usually when I need my Zappa movie fix I turn to my VHS copy of 200 Motels. Hopefully they'll make a DVD of all those movies soon enough.

I've got these 2 VHS as well but since my VHS recorder is on the fritz I haven't seen them for a long time. Have to transfer it, too. Today I watched a video clip of Night School which was also animated by Bickford. Good stuff.
