I think FZs Wikipedia entry's okay, but it could have been a bit more concise or broken up into different entries, like the excellent Wikipedia Beatles entry. :)

It's pretty good, though I think it needs to say something about Frank's political views. Also, another comment about Wikipedia: the articles on conservatism are extremely biased as to make it seem as if the term "conservative" is a right-leaning label. Zappa certainly wasn't no right-winger. What the hell's going on? :evil:

Sorry dude, but I will never change my nickname. If you think I could be Isaac, I just don't care as I expect no form of recognition on this planet in my short lifetime. Please just note that I am twice his age and I live in France. Also unlike his opinions listed on the Wikipedia, I am against any kind of death penalty and I am happy we recycle the garbage in Paris.

I also invite anybody to contribute there.

There's no problem with me. Just a few idiots who have a problem with me for absolutely no reason. Most of the attempts to argue against me revolve around things I never said, or quotes taken out of context. The person you should really avoid is this guy:

I would be interested in working on it.

I think it's a great idea... the FZ universe is so vast, it needs a clearing house to gather everything together and the wiki is perfect for that.

Haha! I love this explanation on for "The Mothers" name on The Mothers of Invention wikpedia entry:

On Mothers' Day, 1964, the band changed its name to "The Mothers" (short for "motherfuckers", which at that time in L.A was slang for a good musician). In late 1965, record producer Tom Wilson made a brief visit to a bar where The Mothers were playing and offered them a contract and an advance of $2500.

I think it is pretty good. I mean it is short, and you defedently need to pick up a few books to get the FULL story, but not bad for a free web page...

that ibaranoff guy is a fucking prick. he think's he's some kind of fucking authority on everything zappa-scratch that, he thinks he's an authority on EVERYTHING. i was browsing one day and added something to a random article. i didn't cite it and he got all pissed at me for it. he didn't even try to help, he just showered insults at me for not citing something even though what i had put was comon knowledge. if i ever saw him in public i would make sure the creepy bald guy from the mexican restaurant down the street from me raped him with a vaccum cleaner. dumbass.

wow that was lame. oh well, it's true.

HEAR MY PLEA!!!!

It is I who was in the wrong here. It happened about three years ago, and, seeing something about carnivorous plants in the archive and seeing that your name was similar to the actual offender said that it was you. I don't really use my wikipedia account anymore (i've forgotten my password and have been unable to log in) so I couldn't really tell you who it was that berated me for the uncitated article. A quick look at your profile reveals that it could not have been you; there's things about this guy that i remember that don't apply to you. It was rather harsh of me to go off like that without any real evidence; i honestly figured the offender would be too busy writing about venus fly traps to give a shit about Frank Zappa. I beg for your forgiveness, you don't seem to be that bad of a guy, and you've done some awesome work with the Freak Out! article (that'd be totally bitchen if it turns out to be a featured article).

Okay, maybe I didn't make this clear enough:

Getting a Zappa article featured on Wikipedia will help gain more exposure to him and his work. The more people who know about Zappa, the more fans there will be. PLEASE support the Wikipedia featured article candidacy for Freak Out!

Isaac,
did you ever get to have a childhood?

and if you did (some people don't), what did you most like to do?
sincerely,
