  • Zappa Plays Zappa
    On Saturday, December 13, 2008, I had the pleasure to see Zappa Plays Zappa. I failed to write extensively about it, I only mentioned it. I had a wonderful time. You can see other writings where I mention Mr. Zappa by viewing blog posts tagged “frank-zappa”. And of course there is my old short piece…

  • The Misc on the Bus Goes Round and Round

  • These Changes

  • Zappa, Thursday
    Zappa talking, Thursday. I’ll have to record this! (for personal use only silly!) Thanks rudy!
  • Neat Stuff
    I like Norah Jones’ music a lot. I like Frank Zappa a lot. I ordered a CD many months ago that just arrived. FZ:OZ. It’s great. Cashflow while freelancing can be an adventure. Sometimes not a good adventure. I have good friends. It’s fun to have sleepovers. Mystery Science Theater 3000 was a great show,…
