I have responded to maybe a dozen threads days ago, yet they have not been posted...my control panel says I've only made 2 posts, how long do you have to wait before the moderator approves a post? This doesn't exactly inspire me to want to hang around.

I'm not saying that this place couldn't be run better mate, but you should visit here when it's overrun with spam, it's bloody awful. If newbies are putting up with a little hassle to join, don't worry, it won't last, once you're an established poster it's easy to visit the place and there'll be plenty of other things to piss you off.

Either way, welcome to you.

Well, you've got 4 posts now, not long to go.

BTW, people can't respond directly to activation threads.

Zappa In Barcelona and Zappa in Paris are indeed both bootlegs.

It's not just a matter of 10 posts. The admin have to review our posts as well. I haven't heard anything yet. It's not clear how long we have to wait.

Hi, I am a collage student in Madison Wisconsin and just watched 200 motels on Netflix and thought it was weird. I never have heard of Frank Zappa and want to learn more so I found this site. Was that Ringo playing Frank Zappa ? That part was pretty funny and yes my grand dad told me about the Beatles. I read a little on some pages and think some of you guys and gals are very funny in a good way, you know.

Some one asked me once why some call me little sally because that is not my real name. I am only 4 foot 11 and about 90 pounds so a girl gets called names sometimes and it sort of stuck and I would guess little sally is not so bad because I have been called worse by mean people. good morning all.

Yes, it was.
And, in case your grand dad told you about "The Who", the nun was their original drummer, Keith Moon.

Ok Ringo played the talking part for Frank Zappa but why did not Frank Zappa speak a word in the whole movie ?
Was it because he was too busy directing ?

Have a look at the 200 Motels cover it's like the whole thing is his twisted fantasy. Being in the back ground like that is actually part of the plot, not just some random effect of him being too bothered to speak. There's something sinister about it.

He also used the famous Pinewood Studios in London for a couple days (what he could afford), so although 200 Motels has its funny moments, Frank didn't have the opportunity to make it into what he wanted.

I guess old simple way does not work properly anymore, the radio is broken...

Poly will assist you through this mysterious initiation rite/gag... Welcome, just keep posting.

Just a new poster that is also frustrated with this rule. Guess I will just have to make posts like this until I get to 10.
