Have you heard?

The "Fils De l'Invention", a French group of Zappa fans, call for a boycot of the Paris ZpZ concert on the 18th of May...

Wow...

-----

This is the CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER... again. Hi!... It's me again, the CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER...

Récemment débouté d'une première plainte, le Zappa Family Trust vient d'en déposer une deuxième contre la Arf Society, l'association allemande qui organise le festival Zappanale.

Pour :
- protester contre ce harcèlement judiciaire déraisonnable,
- afficher une solidarité totale avec nos confrères,
- manifester notre détermination à défendre le travail réalisé par les organisations, les artistes et les écrivains qui assurent, souvent dans un grand dénuement, la postérité de l'œuvre de Frank Zappa,
nous appelons à BOYCOTTER le concert de Dweezil Zappa et de son groupe ZPZ, le 18 mai à l'Olympia, à Paris.
En revanche, nous vous suggérons de venir nombreux à celui des Peach Noise,le 27 mars sur la péniche Antipode à Paris, où ils se produiront avec un répertoire renouvelé.

Visitez http://www.lesfilsdelinvention.net pour plus d'informations sur le contenu de la plainte et sur d'autres trucs vachement intéressants. Pensez à y laisser vos commentaires.

(and here's my cheap translation)

This is the CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER... again. Hi!... It's me again, the CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER...

Just after last month's dismissal of the case of the ZFT against the Arf Society, the ZFT is back with a new complaint against the organisers of the Zappanale Festival.

To
- react against this unreasonable juridical harassment
- show solidarity with our friends
- make it clear that we are determined to protect the works realised by organisations, artists and writers, who make sure that the works of Frank Zappa will not be forgotten,

we ask you TO BOYCOT the concert that Dweezil Zappa and his band ZpZ will be doing on the 18th of May at the 'Olympia' in Paris.

We would like to suggest to visit the Peach Noise concert on the 27th of March at the 'Antipode' in Paris, where they will be performing material by Frank Zappa.

Visit http://www.lesfilsdelinvention.net for more info.

Think about it! And let us know your thoughts.

I believe that it is:

"Est-ce que je peux voir votre pouce ?"

According to Babel fish.

That'd be very informal. You can also say "Je peux voir ton pouce?" or "Peux-je voir ton pouce?"

These guys are brave. I don't have their guts, though. Besides. I was the one who suggested they'd play my hometown, I'd better appreciate it and come!

Although it is not correct, most French people would say "Je peux voir ton pouce ?".
"Puis-je voir ton pouce ?" (not "Peux-je") is rather a very polite or a written form.
"Est-ce que je peux voir ton pouce ?" is commonly used in both written and oral language.

It is? Goodness. French class was REAL bad at my school. No wonder I can barely speak it although I passed with flying colours.
