I never got around to seeing Zappa. It never occurred to me that he would
just go and fucking die before I had a chance to see him in concert. (And I
didn't think of crashing Philip K. Dick's place until it was too late,
No, wait, I actually did see Zappa, but at a quasi-political event. I was

Obligatory favorite Zappa album: Burnt Wienie Sandwich.

"Stop that. You'll hurt your voice."
Mr. Barfko-Swill was responding to a heckler in concert, who was ranting
some fascist plot or other. The Chief Mother was always happy to deflate

Sitting naked by the phone,

Um, nevermind. In fact, don't even think about MBone, okay?
