Let's hope we can all agree that those kinda' words are for ignorant children from ignorant parents repeating like a parrot what they've been told. Not deviating from the norm doesn't leave any change.
I'd like to think we've moved beyond that as a whole here. I believe FZ would agree.
Agreed y'all? :?:

Careful though, that's the kinda thing that people get uppity and demand for your removal... just sayin'.


Well, then the Zappa fans here are FAGGOTS and should go home and get their SHINE BOXES and polish my knob.

Is that a better stab at humor? I DO appreciate the advice. My mind runs dark.

The irony stick should beat you senseless for comments such as this.
You haven't progressed past 2nd grade school yard taunts, but everyone one else is a baby.
For point of reference, my two year old just dies laughing at doo-doo head. Your fodder isn't that much more sophisticated.
Seriously Jayp, I'm not calling you a bigot, I think you aren't smart enough to actually
understand what your words mean, since you seem to have different meanings to every thing you say here.
I know I know, I'm a fag.
What the fuck ever.

If the definition of a "baby" is the same as "not a psychopath", then I have no problem with the babies here.

If you kids wanna get back on topic, I'm wondering who thinks this "MOVIE will be ready" thing means for the theatre or DVD release. The theatre option means nothing to me as I live in the middle of a socially retarded area and the nearest place I might see it is an eight hour drive for away. This being the case the DVD release will likely be another year away, barring any unforeseen delays.

A year for the DVD with limited theater releases around the world until then. Or the DVD by December. Take your pick or make some more.

It all could happen, when you look to the skies or the ZFT business non model. :lol:

In the last email I received, informing me that my "Roxy By Proxy" soundtrack CD preorder was delayed, it does mention that the Roxy movie will be ready for the ZPZ Roxy shows in L.A. in December. The Roxy is a theatre. If you go to that show, it might be your one chance to see it at the theatre. As far as a DVD release....who knows?....


I'm going to see ZPZ in just over 2 weeks and am curious as to whether I'll actually have the soundtrack CD by then. :?

That's a good point.

I'm not sure myself but it's a very good possibility the ZFT is implying that it's just The Roxy Performances theatrical release that will be ready in time for its 40th Anniversary...and not the DVD release. That way they can milk the promo longer...for better or worse...

Well, the title everywhere else is simply "Bebop Tango", and the Roxy version has this "Jazzman Church" thing added, as though it would mean something, but I cannot guess what. :-) After most of FZ's titles it might not mean anything, but who knows - I'm just curious. :-)

I just thought FZ was redefining or clarifying the "Be-Bop Tango... (Of he Old Jazzman's Church)" for the movie and or a livelier stage effect. You know, spice it up a little more for the media coverage as it were, that makes some sense, but like you say it might mean nothing. With FZ, I doubt anything he wrote out like that was "nothing".
I'm curious too, I guess us great ZappaFreaks are all curious! :wink:
Any one else have an answer to our surreal question ?

I think it also might be satire. On jazz. In 1973 Zappa would introduce "Farther O'Blivion" suite as a composition to "prove that jazz is dead". Then on the Roxy version he actually utters: "Jazz is not dead, it just smells funny". Whether or not jazz was really dead, it had perhaps, to Frank Zappa's mind, become an institution. Just like old time religion. Thus maybe the "churchy" connotations?

Sounds like Frankish satire to me too. Like I was suggesting, he was jazzing up his product for that show. I never thought FZ thought jazz was dead for the simple reason he used jazz in a lot of his compositions over the years. I do agree that he thought it smelled funny and at the time it probably did. Besides Frank who else would announce that they're going to play Be-Bop in The Church of The Old Jazzman and then do it? That's what I love about FZ. He could poke fun at any style of music and then play it right back at you the way it's supposed to be done. Mixing styles, terrains, textures and tones the man was fearless in his compositions as we all know. But he also was the 1st rocker to say look you can mix all these styles up and have fun with a composition too. All this was really happening at the end of the '60's and early '70's (after the BeaTle/English rock invation & before disco) so FZ was bringing in some Jazz artist, like GD and JLP to fill out the sounds he wanted out of this band. It could just be a nod to them. Who knows? Franks nose! :twisted:
Amazing musician & man, man! :wink: :D
