Heh, we all had it and we failed at it. My sis, who's a high mucky-muck at a non-profit lending institution, just entered her fifth decade wearing braces (with rubber bands that fly across the room and give her cats some action).

In a couple hours I'm about to go down to the university and pick up a full set of dentures.

I feel the dental pain of my English brethren.

Ryan's friend Justin again. Some real pleasures, and at the end i detect in his summary and scoring that he's starting to crack... wanting to join with the madness that is the wooden horse in the cupboard and the underlying quacking.

9 1/2 :)

(4:40, they're called 'rattles' by the way.)

This guy's ace, but his shit beard annoys me more than his teef.

Irish Mouth is good band name, but not quite as good as The Useless Eaters.

Aww, c'mon, man. He has emo hair!

Wow, did this boy ever miss the bus. I guess it's getting to the point with these Millennials that they'd have to be a cultural studies major to get beyond the clichés of the 60s doled out by familiarity with so-called classic rock. Brown Shoes Don't Make It is one of my favorite early Mothers tunes and it's a social satire -- the import of which flew completely over ol' Justin's head. It actually has a moralistic message (one of Zappa's very few), not at all advocating "pedophilia," but rather saying that the dream of a 13-year-old sex kitten is hardwired into the brains of the kind of emptyheaded ex-jock lunks who get involved in local government. "We see ... in the back ... of the City Hall mind ... the dream ... of a girl ... a-bout thir-teen ... "

Recalling Killer Klown John Wayne Gacy's obsession with the Jaycees, it's kind of prophetic.

Ugh and he points out the most banal details. Stylistic changes every 20 seconds and you just comment on the stereo panning and pitch of vocals? :(

While I don't mind the objective details in themselves, I agree he tends to miss the bigger picture. Then again, this was his very first Zappa tune (hard to believe as that is -- wot, no Peaches En Regalia?) and doubtless he's completely unfamiliar with the Zappa-influenced avant prog that came later. So the ending gets a little chaotic and all he can think of to liken it to is A Day in the Life ... good grief, that final orchestral section's in 11/4 and inspired by Ravel.
