There will be a little German man asking for your papers when and if you ever get the crayons or the Roxy DVD or the Roxy DVD Coloring Book.

Other than a statue that Calvin is not fond of, what the heck else do we have to complain about?

Ponder on that!!!

Sometimes justice seems a fragile thing
You paralyze it with a lack of will
Trade in your karma
Man of action will
Call the avenging angel

Think about it, ponder on this
If you can't make that move, man of action will
Think about it, ponder on that
Time to cut through the fat
I am your first reaction

Someone's got to push it on
Someone's got to shake it on
Someone's got to take it on
Man of action will

A rumor I just heard, which actually is serious as I could tell, is that Gail some years ago said that she would kill herself if the Roxy film was not released before Frank's 70th birthday.

Well, for once I hope she'll renege on a promise! :D

I'd like to see it before my 70th birthday.

Ever since we all saw the Roxy material on the Baby Snakes DVD, it's been like our Holy Grail. I was just wondering - when (if ?) Roxy is released, what will be the Next Big Thing we'll all be clamoring for?

Well, there are a few, for example [insert your favourite titles here]. The ZFT idea of building a loyal fan base sometimes seems to be by Chinese water torture... It's their privilege, but hardly the best business plan or way of keeping the legacy alive.

I guess it depends on what they advertise on the DVD. Probably something weird like the lost Garrick Theater reels which then we'll have to wait 15-20 years to find out they need a budget and an editor.

I might be wrong but wasn't the Roxy trailer on the internet a while before it was on the Baby Snakes DVD?

You are correct.

It was on the front on zappa.com about 10 years ago (or more?). I have stopped wishing for this release. It if comes, I will be pleasantly surprised. If not, so be it.

This may be news arriving too late to redeem an untrustworthy woman [euphemism], but I thought you might like to know --
