Well, it seems Dweezil and Lisa's cooking show has upset the food nazi's over at the Food Network, but now their bring Frank into it.  Just today I read the same stupid shit that ignorant people tend to spew when they don't know anything about Frank, his music, or his views.   Someone posted suggesting that Dweezil is high all the time and that Frank was high when he named his kids.  This stuff just goes all over me.  I've never seen such an angry den as the Food Network's fan sites.  And I thought things got hot at times over here!   ::)  If anyone would like to join me in 'setting the record straight,' please sign up at the FN's message boards.

I guess I'm just taking all the negative commets a bit personal as I really like the show.  I'm a Dweezil fan and it just seems to me that everything he does gets slammed.  Either he's too much like Frank or not as good as Frank in the minds of people who don't give him a chance to succeed in doing what he likes to do.  Frank was right about the kids last name being more of a problem than their first.  <br><br>It also pisses me off that people assume that anyone who's creative and different are on drugs.  They assume Frank was high out of his mind because he dared to use his imagination.  If he and his kids did drugs and someone called them on it, that's one thing.  However accusing them of drug use when it's not true is not only stupid but incredibly misleading to the folks who may not know anything about FZ and family.  They read that stuff and believe it without ever knowing the actual truth.  Then they spread the same crap around when given the chance.  <br><br>I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion.  I like the show, others hate it.  I'm not gonna change their minds, nor they mine.  I do think name calling and unfounded assumptions about people they know nothing about is a waste of time and unproductive.  They don't like the show and feel it should be cancelled cause it's not Emeril or Emeril like.  Never mind the peope who do like it.   Whatever, they should just leave Frank out of it.

VapoSlob,<br><br>Your *rant* made me smile.  You said exactly what I was thinking.  <br><br>I see they removed the thread that refers to the Zappa's being high.  At least I couldn't find it this morning.  Probably just as well.  <br><br>I can't believe that people think Dweezil got the show because of his 'rock star' father.   Mass media doors generally slam at the mention of a Zappa.  <br><br>And to the guy on the FN saying that neither Frank or Dweezil were/are good guitar players because they weren't on THE LIST, maybe it's because Clear Channel has blacklisted FZ.  <br><br>A few years ago when the local 'rock' station was just taken over by Clear Channel, I called in to make a 'lunch request.'  Before CC, they would play Montana and a few other 'safe' Zappa songs.  However, this day when I asked for Montana, I was told 'we can't play that.'  I told them they had played it a few months ago.  He then said, 'sorry.'  And hung up the phone.  Hmmmmm.<br>I haven't listened to the station since.  Fuck 'em!

Its pure evil. Which is why I never listen to the radio.. Most of it is bullshit anyway. The radio station we have here (KQ92) plays the same shit they have been since the later 80's. Basically they play Eric Clapton over and over again. I remember once hearing Layla, (the accoustic MTV version). Then right after that, heard Layla again (album version)! MOst of those people are paid by record companies to play their bullshit songs.

Actually, the only radio I listen to is NPR.   No shit, Clear Channel owns all the local stations around here, except the obvious public radio station.   The same damn *safe* music being crammed down the throats of non thinking consumers.  I may be a little out of touch with the latest and greatest pop sensation, but I don't really need to hear it to know it sucks.   ::)

On Frank Zappa's new cooking show called Hot Plate Heaven (Food Gathering In Post-Industrial America), he'll be preparing Latex Solar Beefheart Stroganoff, Strat Vindaloo, Things That Look Like Meat, Marque-son's Friendly Little Magic Chicken Fingers, Lobster Girl Bisque, Won Ton On, Canard Du Jour, Duck Duck Goose, Mud Shark Filets and Lonesome Electric Turkey pot pies - all in the very dangerous utility muffin research kitchen - for all the muffin men, goblin girls and hungry freaks, daddy.    <br>   <br>Tableware will feature both pink and black napkins on a chrome dinette.   <br>   <br>The gravy will be lumpy because that's how Uncle Easy Meat and the Duke of Prunes like it. Just like they prefer their soup (and old clothes), and their gumbo variations.    <br>   <br>Frank will keep it greasy with lots of bacon fat and baked bean boogie, (with no waiting for the peanuts to dissolve).    <br>   <br>Followed by the ever popular Find Her Finer ConFinement Loaf, smothered in Pound For A Brown Gravy, w/ I'm The Slime Okra on the side.  <br> <br>Featuring the legendary Dead Girls Of London Bean Dip.  <br>   <br>He will call any vegetable for a nice ragout, prepare the Kaiser rolls - layered with swiss cheese, smeared with susy creamcheese and tis the season to be jelly, dipped in dancin' gruel.    <br>   <br>Dessert will be a little green rosetta (prepared with a paper knife), no no cherry flambe, chocolate halvah, chalk pie, peaches in regalia, jellyroll gumdrops and watermelon in easter hay.    <br>   <br>Electric Aunt Jemima will be the featured recipe at St Alphonso's pancake breakfast. And yes, they would like a snack as long as they eat that question and not the yellow snow coneheads.    <br>   <br>After the German Lunch and the Eric Dolphy Memorial Barbeque, they'll go cruising for burgers and Evelyn's Modified Burnt Weenies (that tasted real good - yum yum yummy yum yum) in a town that's a sealed tuna sandwich.    <br>   <br>They'll wash it all down with white port & lemon juice and titties and beer at the 'I Was A Teenage Maltshop'.
