  1. Well, thank you kindly. I'll probably post a little bit here and there, but I tend to have a short attention span with forums. We'll see.
  2. Hey, I've got a story about this album. Want to hear it? I'll tell you anyway. Back in my college days, around '76, I had this album on cassette. Don't snicker, cassettes were hot shiite at the time. Some friends of mine lived in a big old house near campus that had been converted into a ton of student apartments with a common living room. I'd bring it over and play it and they all got a big kick out of it. Well a friend of a friend asked to borrow it. He kept it for a few days and then returned it. I put it back in the carrying case that I kept in my car and thought nothing more of it. Several weeks later I pulled it out to play in the car. I open up the cassette case and what do I find? A Bread tape! I borrowed that SOB a Mothers tape and he returned a Bread tape. What could I do? It had been so long he could just claim that I was lying. I never much liked him before and I sure didn't after that. That reminds me of a Mothers story that I read and get a kick out of. Do you remember Henry Vestine, the guitarist for Canned Heat? He was a member of Zappa's band briefly around '64, not even sure if they were called the MoI at that point. Anyway, Frank was a very demanding band leader as you can well imagine. Henry shows up for rehearsal one day and Frank hands him the music he wants him to play. Henry looks at it and says something to the effect "I can't play this *******. I'm going to quit and form a blues band."
  3. Fried Green Tomatoes has a good courtroom scene. All of Me with Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin is screamingly funny and has a great courtroom scene. And remember the episode of Seinfeld in which Kramer is a witness for Newman when he's trying to beat a speeding ticket? One of my favorites and it ends with a nice little bit of slapstick.
  4. I actually registered so I could post this answer. Heavy Fuel - Dire Straits Kinda surprised no one else mentioned it. Last time I was sober, man I felt bad Worst hangover that I ever had It took six hamburgers and scotch all night Nicotine for breakfast just to put me right ’Cause if you wanna run cool If you wanna run cool If you wanna run cool, you got to run On heavy, heavy fuel Heavy, heavy fuel Heavy, heavy fuel My life makes perfect sense Lust and food and violence Sex and money are my major kicks Get me in a fight I like dirty tricks ’Cause if you wanna run cool If you wanna run cool Yes if you wanna run cool, you got to run On heavy, heavy fuel Heavy, heavy fuel Heavy, heavy fuel My chick loves a man who’s strong The things she’ll do to turn me on I love the babes, don’t get we wrong Hey, that’s why I wrote this song I don’t care if my liver is hanging by a thread Don’t care if my doctor says I ought to be dead When my ugly big car won’t climb this hill I’ll write a suicide note on a hundred dollar bill ’Cause if you wanna run cool If you wanna run cool Yes if you wanna run cool, you got to run On heavy, heavy fuel Heavy, heavy fuel Heavy, heavy fuel On heavy, heavy fuel Heavy, heavy fuel
