I would like to talk about someting i find some years ago, its the way Frank Start some oeuvre or put
some boring stuff even stupid things inside. i Know he said stupidity is the more plentiful object in univers and he had to talk
about it, for sure his idea of a poodle monster is funny, maybe because Frank use dada concept i don't know. What i think is
maybe Frank used the same process like he did to test his new friends intelligence by playing them a Varese LP to see if they were
the type of poeple he wanted to stay in his entourage, a kind of filter to get rid of unpatient people, person who
want their stuff too fast... who won't put time and work to understand things. An exemple of that is the The Mothers Of Invention -
Live In London 1968 video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToQWHNFZ2RE This video start kind of boring for new people who don't know Frank's music.
Is it part of the conceptual continuity? A way to stay underground for better efficiency? We know secret agents are more powerful when we dont
know they are their ;-)

I filter my friends like so: if they don't like dumb and dumber, they can fuck off.

I can appreciate Varese, but actually don't find it all that interesting. I have sat through performanced and been keen for the programme to end!
I wonder if Frank would have found me and my taste acceptable.
I doubt it.
My point is probabkly that using Varese as a criterion of taste is flawed, if not more than a little bit pretentious.

As to your main point, I don't know. Some of the comedy stuff frustrates me sometimes. I don't feel it adds much to the experience, and I don't need it to 'get' the whole conceptual continuity thing.

I am a miserable bastard. What do I know?!

I dont know much also, i just found this idea a good subject to discuss. I think Fran Knew if he get a #1 hit he would have lost his freedom maybe, thats why Help i am a rock was dedicated to Elvis.
