The one-syllable word only thead
It's not that hard. You just post like this, with words that tend to be short. How long can you go on like this?

8. I don't think that should be too hard. I am too tired at this point to
think of words with more than one, so it works for me!
Off to bed.
Good night and God bless, all you DU folks! :-)

6. I can go on for a long time like that
You see, when I speak to my spouse, I have to use small words or he does not get it. He thinks I use big words to make him feel dumb.

47. Don't be so hard on your self
(And yes, it was cheap of me to split that word in two. I am a cheat and have no shame.)

I work with words all day and it's my job to find words that don't stick to the rules. I love words: the large and the small. I love them all. Words are my friends. (Wow. I can't stop. What have you done? I am cursed! Please, kill me now, or it will get worse.)

28. True. Misguided motherhood.
But Al Gore shook Frank's hand at the hearings and praised his music. Frank made an album with the recordings of the hearings. It was called "Frank Zappa Meets the Mothers of Prevention."

29. I've heard that! It is a good album.
Unfortunately, that is how Tipper is remembered by most people. :(
Misguided in the music, but a good mental health advocate and decent Second Lady.

34. I was pissed that she did the thing, and at Al for giving her access.
But I thought it was great stage for FZ to get his views out to America in General.

From Wikipedia:
"Zappa said: "The PMRC proposal is an ill-conceived piece of nonsense which fails to deliver any real benefits to children, infringes the civil liberties of people who are not children and promises to keep the courts busy for years dealing with the interpretation and enforcement problems inherent in the proposal's design... It is my understanding that, in law, First Amendment issues are decided with a preference for the least restrictive alternative. In this context, the PMRC's demands are the equivalent of treating dandruff by decapitation."
Zappa also pointed out in media interviews that neither "comedy records" nor "country music" recordings were being subjected to the same call for warning labels in the proposal, despite the latter genre being rich with examples of references to whiskey, sex, divorce, hellfire and the devil."

36. Have you ever read "The Negative Dialectics of Poodle Play?"
It's by Ben Watson.
It's (seriously) a Marxist deconstruction/critique of Zappa. Amusing.

38. Yes. FZ trashed it eventually. But most fans still read it.
I've also read his authorized biography, "The Real Frank Zappa Story," with Peter Occhiogrosso. They are both excellent reads. Especially while cranking some Frank!

43. Here's a link to an interview with the author, and an excerpt:
http://www.walleyswitzend.com/works-in-progress/antic-o...

He felt that the book was too critical.

I was really hurt by Frank's response to my book since I had nothing but respect for his work and what he was trying to do. I thought it was an unbelievably paranoid response, but in retrospect, I suppose it was a product of his world view (which I amply demonstrated) as well as the fact that indeed he was quite sheltered, or better, demanded that he be sheltered. He was most stung by what Captain Beefheart said, though I found what he had to say very accurate and telling. Frank was big for criticizing everyone else, but couldn't take the heat himself. He disparaged his old band, called Ray Collins in an earlier edition of my book before it was cut out because of bullshit legal pressure and because I could no longer produce the tape," "An archetypal acid burn-out victim," which was a fair enough assessment--cruel, but fair enough if taken in the context with whatever else he was saying. Anyway, Frank's comments really got me, and in some ways, inhibited my confidence, though I did go on to write a biography on Ernie Kovacs, and that was in a way therapy because Kovacs was such a wonderful, quirky and brilliant man. There wasn't the same kinds of resentments involved with him that were obviously involved with Frank.

19. I knew a girl in high school who tried to do a thing like this one day.
It did not work too well. I think she lost some I. Q. points. But I am more smart than her and I will not trip up. I can just write like this for a long time.

Did I say yet that the one who starts this thread is hawt?
