When you try to come up with other names for common items such as canvas snoot (fully charged) and transatlantic intercontinental hobby horse.

When you hear yourself saying:

" Wait. Come back! The music is really good. It gets better. Just listen a few more minutes......Oh well."

When you try to explain to someone what FZ music is all about and after 5 minutes you realize you sound like Dustin Hoffmen in Rainman... :o

When you think the words:

"Green hocker croaking in the Pygmy Twilight" are beautifully poetic.

When.....your about to put on some FZ and you say,ya'll might not understand this stuff it's,well,it might be over your heads......( remember not to blast it) then you put on Watermellon,Black/Pink Napkins/moving on to Yo' Mama,Montana,then the "message" songs,Cosmic Debri,I'm The Slime,Pojama People,Camarillo Brillo......Now you got 'em!
I figure this way,curiosity killed the cat,and getting others to "understand" FZ takes alot of cat killing.You could say that it's the new mother of invention way to snare,soon to be,new Zappa Freaks. :twisted: :idea: :mrgreen:

That's something - thinking someone is a god who would absolutely hate being called that.

I think about it some time and i say to myself is it possible? But i really dont see another person that could be God than Frank Zappa. If Frank is not God i am sure God love Zappa cuz he is honest.

I saw HIM at the am-pm buyin' a pack a smokes! I come to find out he really did design The Mondavi Center,and had the acoustics checked out by Arther Janov & Ensemble Modern,with a preformance of Absolute Zappa. No Shit. :wink: :mrgreen:

Hi,

(Hopefully some folks won't get upset with this ... )

You know you are a true ... TRUE ... Frank Zappa fan, when you know that the guitar is not the only thing he does and plays in his music, and that it is ok to pick up a baton and conduct the band, even if it is a rock band!

I really think that is more in line with the man's work and history ... than we give him credit for or accept half the stuff that he does on his records!
