2. Better than that Toby guy?
Or was it Lucas?
I can't believe this. I'm a little jealous, I think.

3. Zappa is better than God.
Both Zappa & Lukas are DARK. I dig DARK. I must be Goth.

5. I feel better, now.
I'll put my security blankey away.
I'd say you're more Smart than Goth.

The United Mutations!
I'm glad to have you as a Sister. No habit required, but appreciated.

19. Don't I wish.
My sponsor would beat the crap out of me. You ever watch Rescue Me when Denis Leary starts drinking again? That's my sponsor.

21. I'd love to see that show.
But I don't have Showtime. I'll check the library for DVDs.
And don't let me get under the wheels of your wagon. I've heard that various wives consider me a bad influence.

22. Definetly watch Rescue. One of the best shows ever.
And I believe it's on FX. I'll bet NETFLIX has it.

24. I was kinda luke warm about him. He's from MA, so I get his crassness.
However, his acting in Rescue blows me away. I really like him now.

Directed by David Lynch.

28. Holy shit, that would rock.
Buscemi used to be a NY firefighter and Leary had a cousin who died in the Worcester fire in 2000. But you probably know that, coz you're sharp as a tack.

29. I'm thick as a brick.
Otherwise, I'd be rich.
But, yeah. I don't care who writes that movie. With Lynch, I don't that would matter.

38. I used to make pot money painting Zappa on people's jeans and cars
He would have been horrified.

39. Yes, he would have.
But I'm sure some of that cash went for some of his records. Bonus: You get him.

40. Yep, plus I got to meet him in '69 at my art school which was above
The Psychedelic Supermarket in Boston. He came upstairs to see our stuff when the band was in town. He was The Ultimate of Cool....

I was at least fortunate enough to see him live a few times, here in the hinterlands.

43. When you consider all the people who have lived and died before us,
and all the rest who will live after us, we're pretty lucky we got to be in the same room with him.

Isn't it cool that we can talk about it this way? I love the tubes.

And I agree with the other guy - Zappa is god!

7. Time to go home--Madge is on the phone
Gotta meet the Gurney's
And a dozen grey attorneys
TV dinner by the pool
I'm so glad I finished school
Life is such a ball
I run the world from City Hall!

8. My fave.
Chop a line now. . .
Cocaine decisions . . .
You are a person with a snow-job
You got a fancy gotta go job
Where the cocaine decision that you make today
Will mean that millions somewhere else
Will do it your way
Cocaine decisions . . .
You are a person who is high class
You are a person not in my class
And the cocaine decision that you make today
Will mean nothing later on
When you get nose decay
I don't wanna know
'Bout the things that you pull
Outta your nose
Or where they goes
But if you are wasted
From the stuff you're stickin' in it
I get madder every day
'Cause what you do 'n' what you say
Affects my life in such a way
I learn to hate it every minute!
Cocaine decisions . . .
You are a doctor or a lawyer
You got an office with a foyer
And the cocaine decisions that you make today
Will not be discovered till it's over 'n' done
By the customers you hold at bay
Cocaine decisions . . .
You are a movie business guy
You got accountants who supply
The necessary figures
To determine when you fly
To Acapulco
Where all your friends go
Cocaine decisions . . .
We must watch the stuff you make
You have let us eat the cake
While your accountants tell you Yes Yes Yes
You make EXPENSIVE UGLINESS
(How do you do it? - let me guess . . .)
Cocaine decisions . . .
Cocaine decisions . . .
Cocaine decisions . . .

11. My favorite:


And if these words you do not heed
Your pocketbook just kinda might recede
When some man comes along and claims a godly need
He will clean you out right through your tweed

That's right, remember there is a big difference between kneeling down and bending over . . .

He's got twenty million dollars
In his Heavenly Bank Account . . .
All from those chumps who was
Born again
Oh yeah, oh yeah

He's got seven limousines
And a private plane . . .
All for the use of his
Special Friends
Oh yeah, oh yeah

He's got thousand-dollar suits
And a Wembley Tie . . .
Girls love to stroke it
While he's on the phone
Oh yeah, oh yeah

At the House of Representatives
He's a groovy guy . . .
When he Gives Thanks
He is not alone . . .

He is dealin'
He is really dealin'
IRS can't determine
Where The Hook is

It is easy with the Bible
To pretend that
You're in Show Biz
(And a-one, and a-two, and a . . . )

They won't get him
They will never get him
For the naughty stuff
That he did
(No no no no, no no no no . . . )

It is best in cases like this
To pretend that
You are stupid
(DOH . . . )

He's got Presidential Help
All along the way
He says the grace
While the lawyers chew
Oh yeah
They sure do

And the Governors agree to say:
"He's a lovely man!"
He makes it easier for
Them to screw
All of you . . .
Yes, that's true!

'Cause he helps put The Fear of God
In the Common Man
Snatchin' up money
Everywhere he can
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

He's got twenty million dollars
In his Heavenly Bank Account
You ain't got nothin', people
(TAX THE CHURCHES!)
You ain't got nothin', people
(TAX THE BUSINESSES
OWNED BY THE CHURCHES!)
You ain't got nothin', people
Thank the man . . . oh yeah

That's right
You ain't got nothin'
And they got it all
And your miserable ass
Is up against the wall
The only thing you have not tried
It's the sport of chumps
And that's SUICIDE

I didn't play it. I played the record. Really fuckin' loud.
