Pretentious? Moi?

Some good reads in this Zappa appreciation thread. Noteworthy quote from one DonkeyRhubarb: “Has anyone thought about what it is that is exactly wrong with being pretentious? I’m pretentious all the time, I enjoy it. I have a good job, a stable relationship, a loving family and lots of friends. So what if I sit in the pub disscusing the artistic merits of Don van Vliet every now and then. And I wear a beret, a full length brown leather jacket and smoke Giantes.”

    Giantes??? it must be Gitanes… (this classic french cigarette brand will instantly ruin your lungs after one puff)…

    Oh, yea? I like Gitanes. They are mild and have a great flavor, in my opinion. Plus the pack is cool to look at.
    I smoke them occasionally, but I don’t smoke them to be pretentious or better than thou.
    Pretention is for sissy-boys and panty waists
    and prancy little fancy little girlie-boys.
    I dunno, maybe not.
