Uncle Meat Mystery Digits

From Reilly Joret: I just had a question concerning Uncle Meat. I was looking through the cd booklet and on the back there are small pics of the band members (and their teeth) as well as a skull. My question pertains to the numbers both under the pictures and on the skull. Do you know what these stand for or if they have any meaning whatsoever?
Umm… nope, not a clue. Which is why I’m posting the question here… anyone?

Haah! Patrick De Witte is weblogging! Who the fuck is PDW you ask. Apart from being a columnist for Belgium’s finest weekly magazine Humo, he’s also an incredibly funny person. His weblog is in english by the way.


Hey (or whoohow if you prefer): an interview with Frank Zappa I hadn’t come across yet. Conducted by Arf Society member Michael Heinze at Frank’s home in North Hollywood, July 30 1990.

What would you do with the WTC plot?

Adam Purple is an artist/gardener that created, back in the 70s-80s this garden in Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
Now, Adam and a group of urban designers and gardeners are proposing to create a garden in the piece of ground where the WTC was before Sept. 11th. Perhaps you might want to sign the petition online…

The amount of green and cheeziniss on this charming page should keep you nauseated for the next couple of hours.

Spin Magazine’s 50 Greatest Bands Ever. Doesn’t feature Mothers Of Invention. Does feature Korn and Guns ‘n Roses. I leave you to draw your own conclusions.
