how do I……………

As an aid to readers who may not be fluent in Indonesian, here’s what they like to talk about when visiting KUR (in case you hadn’t guessed already).

Go ‘head on ‘n get it over with then

Nothing’s worse than a suicide chump.

A Girl Named Sue’em

Gail Zappa sure is one busy lady.

It Conquered The World

Movie title screen pages, and nothing but movie title screen pages. I even found the title screen page for It Conquered The World! (via J-Walk)

I’m here, Zappa Sister!

When the zappa.com forums go down, here’s what happens.

Írtam Barrynek

Hey, the Hungarians are talking about me in erh… Hungarian. Which means I have no idea what they’re on about. My breath? My pumpkins? My Abba collection? (Actually I do know, sort of, but I’ll save that for later!…)

TOMD

How do you get your child actively involved in Homeland Security? Get ‘em started early.

American Composer

…and if we can’t offer any aural delight, we just point you to a place that can: “American Composer”, the radio documentary produced by Steve Rowland and Gail Zappa which is only available as streaming audio at zappa.com, is available as .mp3 right here.

This morning, in KUR

Roitters.- 26 Sept 2003
Dramatic scenes happened this morning at KUR office, when a bunch of hardcore boots consumers plunged into Gilles’s container in desperate search of their usual friday boot, to scarcely find 3 and a half broken .wavs by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass, and a couple of little shouts Michael Jackson recorded in ’78 and ’81, respectively. The maximmum CEO of the institution, Barry, is showing clear symptoms of the “Rejecting His Own Face” syndrome by wearing a pair of groucho-glasses. “Although some friends started to help, all my kopecks went to my landlady, the merciless Cruella De Bandwidth”, said Barry. “Couldn’t feed the container this week…”
Observers said there’s still hope for next month. Time will tell…

Seven Feet Under The Coffee Table

“I’d rather have her at home than seven feet under ground. Lucy had a great sense of humor and I’m sure she would appreciate being my coffee table.”

How You Get Here

Guess I should have added another voting option to the recent “why are you here?” poll. Namely: this one. To the 13 girls that want to have my child: I’m flattered but taken!

It’s ‘Guess That DeVICE’ Time!

There’s something about the Japanese, but I can’t quite put my hand on it

Moore Kicks Butt

Michael Moore: How to Deal with the Lies and the Lying Liars When They Lie about “Bowling for Columbine”. Quote: “I suppose the people who tell their make-believe stories about me and my work will continue to do so. Maybe they should be sued for knowingly libeling me. Or maybe I’ll just keep laughing – laughing all the way to the end of the Bush Administration — scheduled, I believe, for sometime in November of next year.”

Unsexy

38. Lead guitarists. Girls have THINGS for bassists, THINGS for drummers. But do you know anyone with a THING for lead guitarists? No. Too often, they cross the line between cocky and desperate. –The Unsexy Top Fifty

Big Leg Emma

“This year, our new creation is called ‘Big Leg Emma’; named after a song from Frank Zappa’s Absolutely Free album,” explained Dario Pegoretti in his stand at the Milan bike show. “I think all the emphasis on lightness these days is kind of silly, so I wanted to build a strong bike.” And Big Leg Emma certainly is.
