Conspiracy!

Man Not Included . It’s all part of one big conspiracy I tell ya! As is life as a cockroach.

HotPoop Headquarters!

Almost one year ago, Barry decided to renew his HotPoop service news as a blog. And it was hell of a year, if i may say so. We’ve been able to know very cool people, which i hope is reading this now (yes, i’m talking of you two! :-). Here’s a picture of our precious office, apologies to all that are not there, but you have to come to the office in order to stay in the pic! :-)

Driving Lessons

I loathe people who park their car in spaces reserved for the handicapped (unless they are handicapped, naturally). However, this flash movie got me thinking…

Ancient Oriental Art

“This very nice artwork that come with card and make good gift for your friend. I make artwork for you and you buy it now. Don’t you understand anything about other culture?” (source: Zfilter)

The Captain & His Magic Bands

CaptainBeef.jpg
There’s a new release coming from Captain Beefheart, consisting of recordings of live gigs in the UK from ’72 to ’80. More here. Also (and alas), this source quotes sound quality of the album as being “far from good”. Whatever suits your fancy…

Fresh Meat #3

More Fresh Meat. This track, Wiggle-Waggle was taken off of Herbie Hancock’s Fat Albert Rotunda album, recorded in ’69, released in ’70. I’m a real sucker for this kind of early jazz-funk stuff. Some of it vaguely reminds me of what the Roxy band pulled off – although the latter was obviously more adventurous both rhythmically and melodically…

Randomosity

Rolls Royce Silver Shadow Sedan: FZ’s daily drive. As an interesting anecdote, it has been said that Frank only allowed the car to be driven with the Rolls Royce flying lady emblem turned backwards, as he said his “ass was always hanging in the wind.”
Suzie Creamcheeze: the lily version.
Another 9-11 plot: The men were taking video or photos of themselves with the World Trade Center burning in the background, she said. What struck her were the expressions on the men’s faces. “They were like happy, you know They didn’t look shocked to me. I thought it was very strange,” she said.
Enjoy the reads…

Fractals discovered in 13th century

“I was stunned,” Schipke says. “It was like finding a picture of Bill Gates in the Dead Sea Scrolls. The colophon [the title page] named the copyist as Udo of Aachen, and I just had to find out more about this guy.”
The Mandelbrot Monk.

Free, Drunk and Horny (quoting PhatElvis :-)

Newsflash: Australia gets drunk, wakes up in North Atlantic.
Wait for South America heading up to California next Friday night!

While we are rooting

…for the Americans in the house (you are playing right now, come on, WAKE UP, Americans!! you almost made a goal, WAKE UP!! :-) you may have fun with this Uglyfootballers.com site, at last a football site at my reach. Recommended links: Beauty and the Beast, Famous Look a like, and the greatest Mullets section. To really understand this ancient sport! :-)

Unusual Collectible Item

Lookie this Zappa collectibles list… What caught my attention was this Official Valley Girl Coloring Book edited by Moon Zappa & her Dad, anyone seen it before? Bad news: the list was updated last time in ’99. But it seems the place is still functioning…

Permission to link, SIR!

Hmmm… what do you think: shall we link to npr.org, or not?
Ironically npr.org, a site which apparently prohibits linking to any of its pages without prior consent, is being linked to by just about every weblogger on the planet because of that very exclusive policy. Heheh, gotta love the web…

Sensitive, thinking Robot obtains freedom at last

Someone give this robot some Zappa’s CDs, so he doesn’t have to escape anymore looking for them! (source: boingboing.net)
