43. Frank was right about a lot.

Like TV for instance - I'm The Slime from 1973

I am gross and perverted Im obsessed and deranged
I have existed for years But very little had changed
I am the tool of the government And industry too
For I am destined to rule And regulate you

I may be vile and pernicious But you can't look away
I make you think I'm delicious With the stuff that I say
I am the best you can get Have you guessed me yet?
I am the slime oozin out From your tv set

You will obey me while I lead you And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don't need you Don't got for help...no one will heed you
Your mind is totally controlled It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told Until the rights to you are sold

That's right, folks ... Don't touch that dial

Well, I am the slime from your video Oozin along on your livingroom floor

I am the slime from your video Cant stop the slime, people, lookit me go


Another thing was his take on narrowing retro movements from his autobiography. He observed that American culture was embrtacing retro things that were increasingly recent. Eventually, we would go retro to now, and cultural growth would stagnate.
