Frank Who? (2)

In answer to the comments on Frank Who?, this snappy Gail Zappa quote from Relix Magazine‘s April/May ’06 issue (which was sent to me by its guest editor Richard Gehr — thanks so much for that bud!) should clear things up a bit:

The two concerts seen in the Dub Room Special DVD exist separately on video, and we’re working on releasing one of them in surround sound. This also represents our first foray into another project I’m interested in, which is inviting certain well-known producers and engineers who never had an opportunity to work with Frank, but were well aware of, inspired by, or interested in his work, to get their hands on a Frank Zappa project. In this regard, we turned over the KCET concert to Frank Filipetti. And we’ll still release the Token of His Extreme DVD by the same band.

Robert Carl Cohen On Mondo Hollywood

Interesting comment from Robert Carl Cohen on the Mystery Disc page:

To Whom It May Concern
I am the Writer-Producer-Director and owner of all rights to MONDO HOLLYWOOD. Among the various misrepresentations made about my film are the following:
1. That the music of Frank Zappa and his group, THE MOTHERS OF INVENTION, was edited out of the film. He and his group were, indeed, filmed by me at one of several parties, scenes from which are intercut in the film’s final “Freakout” sequence, but I did not record their music at any time. I shot them silent, using a non-blimped Arriflex 35-C. The few shots of them seen in my film constitute all the footage recorded. There were no out-takes.
2. A certain “Kim Fowley” claims to have recorded Zappa and his group during the MONDO HOLLYWOOD party; and has been selling what he claims is the music from that party. The truth is that there was no one professionally recording the music performed at that event. I am in possession of signed releases from everyone who was present. I have no idea where Fowley acquired the music he is selling as “The sound track from the MONDO HOLLYWOOD party scene, or whose music it is, but it was never a part of my film.
Sincerely
Robert Carl Cohen

I’ll See Your * And Raise You A *

As you probablee know English isn’t my mother tongue, so when writing up a comment here, I did the following search on Google to verify the accuracy of the term I was about to use:
search?q=”i’ll see your” “and raise you a”
A random pick of what people “see” and “raise you”:

  • dead pigeon/piece of yarn
  • waitress/pair of comfortable shoes
  • Gender Essentialism/Social Construction
  • Values/Girl Scout Cookie
  • namedropping/hairstylist
  • Karl Rove/Dick Durbin
  • Mary Tyler Moore/Sophia Loren

Right. That’s enough coffee for you Barry.
