If the music was shite, no one would be going on about CC so shut the fuck up about it. CC idolatry is for assholes like you who feel the need to feel better than other fans because they can make more connections on the jigsaw. <br><br>Haha, i take it when you go on your rants and raves it's illuminating and enlightening...if anyone else does it they're idiots. For your information i really liked joe's corsage, joe's domage was shit though and i never liked the title of of either because of the overtly obvious reference to an album i love, i also don't understand why on joe's corsage they used that image of his for the album cover...why have a pic from the joe's garage era on an album that has no music from that time...don't tell me i can guess, there's some super secret piece of CC  tying that picture with those recordings. <br><br>Have you ever thought about the fact your posts pt other forum users off using this site....you won't give a fuck about that though as you are so superior to them that it doersn't matter....much better having a blind "authority" go get a fucking life moron

That's a lot to read and weep over. <br><br>Anyway, if people wanted to come and search for anything related to Zappa + Blancmange, then your thread might not show up in a search. So it's probably a better public service if you take the time to figure out how to spell things. Just an idea.

The blancmanges have swept the board, winning match after match. Here are just a few of the results: Billie-Jean King eaten in straight sets, Laver smothered whole after winning the first set, and Poncho Gonzales, serving as well as I've never seen him, with some superb volleys and decisive return volleys off the back hand, was sucked through the net at match point and swallowed whole in just under two minutes. And so, here on the final day, there seems to be no players left to challenge the blancmanges. And this could be their undoing, Dan: as the rules of Wimbledon state quite clearly that there must be at least one human being concerned in the final. (we see a three-foot- high blancmange being shepherded onto a tennis court by a Scotsman) Well the blancmange is coming out onto the pitch now, and (suddenly exalted) there is a human with it It's Angus Podgorny! The plucky little Scottish tailor ... upon whom everything depends. And so it's Podgorny versus blancmange in this first ever Intergalactic Wimbledon! <br><br>(Cut to the centre court at Wimbledon or fi we can't get it, number one will do. Blancmange and Podgorny on opposite sides net. Another blancmange sitting in umpire's chair. Blancmange serves... a real sizzling ace. Podgorny, who in any case is quivering with fear, doesn 't see it.) <br><br>Commentator's Voice: And it's blancmange to serve and it's a good one. <br><br>Blancmange Umpire: Blurb blurble blurb. <br><br>Voice Over: Fifteen love. <br><br>(Blancmange serves again, and again Podgorny misses hopelessly and pathetically. Collage of speeded-up versions of blancmange sewing and Podgorny missing. Cut to scoreboard: <br><br>BLANCMANGE.' 4O<br>PODGORNY: O<br><br><br>Cut back to the court. Podgorny is serving and each time he fails to hit the ball altogether.) <br><br>Commentator's Voice: And Podgorny fails to even hit the ball ... but this is no surprise as he hasn't hit the ball once throughout this match. So it's 72 match points to the blancmange now... Podgorny prepares to serve again. <br><br>(Podgorny fails to serve and we see the scoreboard:) <br><br>BLANCMANGE: 6 6 5 40<br>PODGORNY: 0 0<br><br><br>Commentator's Voice: This is indeed a grim day for the human race, Dan. <br><br>(Just as Podgorny is about to serve we see Mr and Mrs Brainsample jump onto the court brandishing forks and spoons and with napkins tucked into their necks.) <br><br>Commentator's Voice: But what's this? Two spectators have rushed onto the pitch with spoons and forks... what are they going to do? <br><br>(Cut to laboratory.) <br><br>Charles: They mean to eat the blancmange. <br><br>(The girl pulls herself up from where she was slumped by microscope. He knocks her out again with a sand-filled sock. Cut back to Wimbledon. Mr and Mrs Brainsample chasing blancmange and eating it.) <br><br>Commentator's Voice: And they're eating the blancmange ... Yes! The blancmange is leaving the court... it's abandoning the game! This is fantastic! <br><br>(Cut to Mr and Mrs Brainsample covered in bits of blancmange and licking their fingers.) <br><br>American Voice: Yes it was Mr and Mrs Samuel Brainsample, who, after only a brief and misleadling appearance in the early part of the film, returned to save the Earth ... but why? <br><br>Mr Brainsample: Oh, well you see we love blancmanges. My wife makes them. <br><br>American Voice: She makes blancmanages that size? <br><br>Mr Brainsample: Oh, yes. You see we're from the planet Skyron in the Galaxy of Andromeda, and they're all that size there. We tried to tell you at the beginning of the film but you just panned off us. <br><br>(Cut back to Podgorny on court still trying to serve; at last he makes contact and runs backward and forward to receive his own services.) <br><br>American Voice: So the world was saved! And Angus Podgomy became the first Scotsman to win Wimbledon... fifteen years later. <br><br>(Caption on screen : 'YOU'RE NO FUN ANYMORE')<br><br><br>

Explain how the "Joe's _____" series tarnishes the memory of Joe's Garage. In what way? How has this new series of unreleased material tarnished the memory of the classic 1979 album and the fictional garage in its story?

And what else were they supposed to call it--the guy putting together these things, the Vaultmeister, is named "Joe." I cannot see any ration in your argument that it tarnishes the memory of anything. 8)

How is unearthing rare material none of us have ever heard before and releasing it to the public at large a "travesty"? :smurf:
