A little bit of nostalgia for the old folks

Be the first one on your block to have your boy come home in a box.







If we did not invade Iraq and all those other invasions that seem to have resulted in terrorism incubators, we'd have a spare three to five trillion dollars that could have been used for medicare for all and rebuilding our rotting infrastructure. And other constructive things that would have benefited all of us.

Instead we manufactured and put to use stuff that merely kills, mains and blows up real good.

Evil massive squandering of our tax dollars that benefited only the morbidly wealthy sociopaths that run everything.

Boy do we have to take our country back. Going to be challenging forty to fifty years of the wealthy gaming the system and blowing up checks and balances needed for a just and healthy society.

4. Thank you. So do I!

It's a line from Zappa's We're Only in it for the Money, where he plays a snippet of his 1962 Studio Z surf Guitar.

I was in to CJ and the Fish a year or two before my first Mothers Show Stony Brook, Oct 16, 1971.

I've incorporated a lot of FZ wit and especially wisdom into my persona the last 45 years! He is my hero.

5. I've long been a Zappa fan, and have all his guitar solo albums on CD.

Enjoyed his autobiography, too.

7. When they played Woodstock,

It wasn't F-I-S-H that they spelled out.

8. I haven't seen that album cover....

since the night someone ripped my copy off at a party 50years ago! WAS IT YOU, 90-PERCENT? WAS IT YOU!!!!

'Who Am I'.... one of the great, great songs from that album. There was a lot of pseudo-psychedelic bullshit on the album as well, but back then we didn't know it was pseudo-psychedelic bullshit!

Thanks for posting that, 90-percent. It sure brings back some memories, and every one of them a good one.
