…And I’m back.
Alright. I haven’t given a long thought to all this, so please pardon me for not cutting the crap. A new post was long overdue, a Zappa post was long overdue, so there it is, all in one go. There are just so many reasons to post this particular piece of Zappa’s immense work, so I won’t elaborate on this. As Zappa has done with most of his creations, especially as he has done with the pieces with lyrics incorporated in them, I’m the slime is a bomb dropped on a essentially one topic. This topic – and the way it is delivered in the context of the lyrics – may or may not have tentacular extensions, multiple meanings, suggestions and images whose variety remains, very rightfully so, the trademark of the composer, the logic of the thinker behind.
As for the media file I’ve picked this time… well, all the Zappa fans out there know how hard it can be to find a particular version of a track that you adore from a FZ [official OR bootleg]+[live OR studio] performance. Of course I’m not wasting time talking about this very rude misconduct known as downloading. I find it a chance that a music enthusiast who goes by the name of Brian Pollard on youtube has taken the time to make a good quality file, with its own little composition of pictures in an iMovie format. Respect for doing this with many different cool tunes.
I can only close this post without saying anything more as I could be going on for hours on Zappa (man I feel like doing this in another post… or blog, or book, or stone tablet collection). The only choice left for me is to quote the man with the funny nose and then shut the fuck up, go back to my tiny little room and quietly dream my last…. who gives a fuck aaanyway:
You will obey me while I lead you
And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don’t need you
Don’t go for help . . . no one will heed you
Your mind is totally controlled
It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold
