  1. I am vile and pernicious,
    but you can't look away.
    I'm make you think I'm delicious
    with the stuff that I say.
    I'm the best you can get.
    Have you guess me yet?
    I'm the slime oozin' out
    from your TV set.


    I LOVED Frank Zappa!

  20. Now I will be revealing something embarrassing about me. I knew it was Zappa, but I wasn't into his work. I am more into the "long hair" or classical music than the other long hair. All that aside, I like what you have done here. You do some very nice illos.

  21. "We could Jam in Joe's garage
    His momma was screaming TURN IT DOWN
    We was playing the same old song
    In the afternoon, and sometimes we would
    Play it all night long
    It was all we knew, and easy too
    And we couldn't get it wrong-
    You can even play it on the saxophone!"

  24. i love those retro spektacular colors. it is said that red and blue are the most vibrant colors together. they top green and red. this means that you might might just might need some 3D glasses for this one!

  25. We love Frank at this house. Invention personified!

  26. Ooh, yeah, Joe's Garage! The first volume stands alone in my opinion and yes, apparently even sounds good on a saxophone :).

    Nice eye-catching psychedelic design there!

  27. In my 20's, while attending Michigan State, I walked to the Union Building and saw a guy with long hair wearing a racoon coat coming toward me on the sidewalk...he smiled and said hello as we passed each other. Later that night, my boyfriend David took me to see a group he called The Mother's of Invention and there he was...Loved you, Frank Zappa...
