Izzy La B

Have a look at this marvellous example of contemporary webdesign, authored by a certain someone whom we shall name Izzy La B. Then click on the Kill Ugly Radio links on that page. …back? That was fun eh?


On e-Bay: very cool Zappa Songbook for sale. Besides the sheet music, it contains 8 full page pictures and 20 + pages of illustrations by Cal Schenkel. Also contains a 14 page manuscript reproduction. Owner says the book is in excellent condition. Looks tempting…

Courtney Cuckoo

Boston Friday

As if you hadn’t noticed yet, there’s a new concert up for your listening pleasure: Boston, Feb 20 ’88. This one’s a moderately heavy download, so I can’t assure it’ll be up all week…

Like, A Scrotum

Aaaaaaaargh! Here’s to crossing my legs for the rest of the day.
