I fell for it the first time I heard "Don't You Ever Wash That Thing?".

Blah blah blabbity blah blah new music blah blabbity blah.





Dear Residents of Earth who are interested in anything & everything concerning the Roxy Performances & the Roxy By Proxy,

Mercury ceases its retrograde activities tomorrow.* We've been busy refining the License. Based on your questions we are clarifying the offer to absolutely include people who are not necessarily U.S. residents. We are extending the offer to the 21st of June - the Summer Solstice! But most importantly we are pleased to announce we are going FORWARD. This means we can give you an actual ship date. And it is: Not later than 30 July 2013. YAY!

One more time for the world – we here at Zappa Records are looking for a few good men and women to sign up as Official Independent Distributors of a never-heretofore-released, thoroughly Authentic Zappa Master Recording. And this is not just any thoroughly authentic Zappa Master Recording either. No, this is the one many of you have been beyond craving. Please sit down to read this part: This is the Roxy – the Soundtrack – yes, it is the introductory Soundtrack, the Prequel if you will – the Project/Object of your Dreams. 76 unadulterated minutes of fabulous frenzy await you. And the opportunity of a life-time: Roxy By Proxy! Should it be determined that you become an Officially Licensed Authorized Zappa RBP Distributor, you can make as many copies of the record as you can possibly distribute – AND except for reporting to us your sales & customers (just like any other recor d distributor) and paying us the publishing, YOU keep the money. AND you get to collect royalties from what is sold at Barfko-Swill AND you will also be entitled to a special wholesale price available to the OLAZRBPDs (Officially Licensed Authorized Zappa ROXY BY PROXY Distributor) exclusively.

Other good news in the Elsewheres, this will now most likely be official release number 98 or 99. Yes. From this you can deduce that there are other Somethings in the more or less immediate future. (Thanks in advance for your participation in assisting us with getting the Roxy Performances out there in a theatre near you.)

So here’s the deal go to: getsome.zappa.com for all the updated information and the ACTUAL LICENSE.

Many thanks and good will to all.

But it says NO LATER THAN July 30th! It could actually be early and hahaha, okay, I couldn't keep a straight face.

It sounds like some other stuff will be released before then. I'm not going to criticize.

One CD does not an Object/Project whatever it is usually a called, make. Still a promotion for the hairbrained marketing pushing-of-the-goods. What the hell kind of idiot investment is this, anyway? I will tell you - a BAD one. Gail, please, I love ya and all that, but cut the BS and get to the point, and quit delighting yourself on how clever you are-
You have some hot rats lawyers, that is true - have you checked this idea out with them and (more importantly) your financial adviser? If so, hire new ones!

I mean all of this in a nice way - please don't get pissed and close up shop - that would wipe us all out - all we want is the music, and that is a GOOD thing :mrgreen:

Can someone please translate for me, being a simple minded comsumer only, in a few simple words, when I can buy what, if I want to? What will be the actual releases available to the public? And when?

You'll know when something is coming out 2-3 weeks before it's released. You won't know what's on it until the day it comes out or when you get it (except the Roxy Soundtrack, I think that a lot of what's going to be on there we already know about.)
