    Ancient mask with a copyrighted moustache??? Franuk the eskimo?… Wow!!!
    But anyway, not a big surprise after the REAL story of the Turin shroud… :-)

    $5,000 for a 15 watt amplifier!!!
    I think I’ll stick with my Marshall.
    My Ampeg Gemini II has more wattage and wonderful tone.

    Oh, well, better late than never.

    The alaskan mask kinda looks like Jimmy Carl Black, the Inupat of the group.

    A quote from urbangraffito:

    100% AUTHENTIC item obtained directly from HERB COHEN, Frank Zappa’s former manager and co-founder of Straight, Bizarre and Discreet Records labels.

    These sort of hucksters really piss me off big time. It just goes to show that many ppl directly surrounding FZ were, at times, more interested in making a living off of him (or his musical legacy) than aiding him in his career. I mean, how many field recordings do fans possess today because former band members and road managers sold soundboard tapes of early shows for there own profit (for whatever reason). But, $12,000.00, that’s sheer robbery if you ask me…

    No Porn Pledge: Perhaps it’s just my age, but I prefer the real thing to a visual simulation. And maybe, just maybe, that’s what’s wrong with the world these days: ppl have given up the real for the simulated.

  8. Paul Sempschi says:

    I’d rather make my own porn…
    Re:disc, too bad this wouldnt incite a frenzy like the VU acetate or the German Beatles concert did. I would love for some big record company to pick this up and release it, cheapely, plentifully and easily… finally a release we boycotters could shell for!
    In a dream world, this disc would be more plentiful than those Cheep Thrills and Strictly Commercial cds you see everywhere. “Just when you think there’s a F* cd in the store, you turn to find- someone misplaced the Zappacosta!!!”

  9. jane23 says:

    if everyone who signed the petition, (1,200 last time I checked), sent $10.00 to KUR then Barry’s Imaginary Publisher could purchase the 12 song stereo LP acetate Master and distribute it over the internet to everyone who forked over the 10 bucks.
    YAY!!! Let’s hear it for Barry’s Imaginary Pubic Hair.

  10. Roland says:

    Okay, I will not date, sleep with, or have a serious relationship with jane23. Satisfied? :-)

  11. Hugh says:

    How would Zippo feel about the “no porn pledge”?
    I can’t imagine him wasteing time downloading porn. But I don’t see him signing the pledge either. How about a no violence pledge instead? Do what you want as long as you know no one gets hurt in the process.

  12. urbangraffito says:

    Every time you hold it you are guilty of a crime…

  13. Hugh says:

    Guilty As Charged!
    Oh wait . . . my mistake, I was holding a roll of lifesavers.

    Surprised to find a anti-Porn site that isn’t a rabid religious fanatic site! Almost spilt my drink!

    Is Amy Winehouse a Libra?

  17. Jamez says:

    What would Frank’ve said about her?

  18. xorg says:

    I was wondering if perhaps Herb Cohen had died and his estate are selling off all his stuff? Otherwise I couldn’t figure why Mr Cohen should choose this particular time to dispose of all his FZ memorabilia.

    Did you hear the latest news? Gail just discovered a new role in life. Her great example is Alice Coltrane ( John Coltranes wife).
    What is she going to do?
    ” The nerve! Alice Coltrane’s reputation was already shaky within traditional jazz critics in the early 1970s. You can just about still hear the echoes of righteous indignation that rolled in when she took previously unreleased performances from her sainted husband circa 1965 and 1966, and superimposed a blanket of strings, harp, Indian drones. Rerecorded her own solos. Dropped Charlie Haden in there. Coltrane with strings? Heresy! With performances including members of the classic quartet, no less. It was like somebody spraying graffiti on the Mona Lisa to “improve” it.”

  20. Roland says:

    Oh my God, bernard! You really give me the creeps. But isn´t the AAAFNRAA Birthday Bundle the first step in this direction?

  21. bernard says:

    As you might have noticed, Roland, I intended to add some pornography to this blog by mentioning this latest news.

  22. Roland says:

    How ´bout this: We have a jam session, saxophone, ukulele, phone book, some wine glasses full of water and play Black Napkins – jane23 sings the lyrics, bernard will do the background vocals and we call it “Why Do White Folks Like Litigation So Much”.

  23. bernard says:

    And we’re actually that bad that the audience starts shooting. Result : we’re all officially burried in Alaska.
    In the year 4008 a courageous discovery crew from the new super power state Albania discovers the froozen dead bodies. They are very surprised about our faces, they call them masks. Back in Tirana the crew is invited in the Presidents office. He says : I will send a C& D letter to all the descendants of Uncle Barry.

  24. Roland says:

    A C&D letter to Uncle Barry´s Farm, cmplaining, that the musicians were buried alive, while playing …

  25. Guilty Quoter says:

    “Where did they go?
    When did they come from?
    What has become of them now?
    How much was the leakage
    From the drain in the night
    And who are those dudes
    In the back seat of Barry’s car? “

  26. bernard says:

    How did the Pres. of Albania know ‘ bout Uncle Barry?
    It’s simple . Why? Basically because it’s easy to understand, right?
    In 2056 Uncle B. got his mausoleum in the suburbs of Tirana. Why? And why did Albania become a super power? As a result of atomic tourism, http://www.atomictourist.com/, the latest find of the tourist industry in 2036. Both Americas, Asia and Western Europe got completely destroyed. Los Angeles was nothing more than just smoke.
    Uncle B., who escaped, kept preaching the FZ gospel in Eastern Europe together with his soul mate & buddy Balint. Dr. Sharleena, then a nurse, tried to help people. However she died soon afterwards. Uncle B. & Nurse S. sent an open letter to the world, the day before they both died. It said : ” As a result of atomic tourism people get very ill. One of the earliest symptons is both installing 16- sixteen – G-1000 Guitar Amplifiers at once and raising the price of one record from Rockaway Records to 6,7 billion euros. However the human race will die out.”. That was the reason why they got – in the shadow of Mother Teresa, another great Albanian – a nomination for the Nobel Prize Humanities & Science.
    And when Rolands & Urbangr’s descendants showed up in Albania in 4008 in an attempt to stop the president from taking action they quite soon discovered porn. They discovered like mined people in Tirana, actually descendants of the Dweezils & Moons children.
    However they made up their mind and set up a busker band, playing music – in Tiranas streets – from Bach, FZ, FredVanHove, Orlando Di Lasso, MarvinGaye & the like.
    Nobody listened. As £*L^lL°¨happened to be the latest musical trend.

  27. urbangraffito says:

    And as a heavenly light passed through an opening in them old brown clouds, Urbangraffito’s descendants peered upward and glimpsed the saintly imperial as the most discordant music heard in thousands of centuries filled their ears, and all they could say was, remembering the words of their great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grandfather Urbangraffito: Amen, brother, and…
    Whatever happened to all the fun in the world?

  28. Roland says:

    … installing 16- sixteen – G-1000 Guitar Amplifiers …
    … playing Dumb All Over on nuclear powered pan flutes …
    It´s The Grand Wazoo vs. Kurt Schwitters, it´s the Gospel according to Bernard , verse 145556g. Gee, I like your story, bernard. Makes me feel like a Dick – Philip K. Dick – shaken not stirred. And Five-Five-Five will always be the first 3 digits making a phone call in LA. Up in smoke it is … the future is unwritten … Let´s mind the …

  29. Paul Sempschi says:

    hmm, the $10 deal might be a decent idea, anyone interested in following up onnit?

    The Inupiat are gonna need an attorney soon.
    As will the current owner of the Shroud of Turin.
    (Remember when PepsiCo tried to copyright “Uh-Huh!”?)
    You’ll take MY porn away when you pry it out of my chapped oily hands!
    $5000 for a pre-amp … so it’ll sound like it’s blown-out. Gosh, dude, how very bogus! Why not save the dough by getting a cheap amp & blowing it out, for free? Needless to say, the original requisite of simply poking holes in the speaker cone with a needle is too low-tech (not to mention obvious). Enter the Scrotum Smasher & Fucking Fucker – for bourgeois rawk-god-wannabes only!

    That’s funny, http://www.idiotbastard.com is completely gone… did the barking pumpkin get him? or maybe he just didn’t pay his bill?
