nor in competing for the favor of wayward friends.

Even though avid fans have probably seen all of the footage it's made out of ...
Did anyone see the new acclaimed documentary Eat that Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words?
It's supposed to be very good.

[A bit late] Yeah, I saw it. I'd say good, worth viewing but not great. Most striking/memorable aspect IMO was that the film strongly conveys the impression that FZ's real ambition was to have been an avant-garde classical composer.

It [Frank could be a real dick] cannot be denied.
That's for sure. I have heard some extremely unpleasant anecdotes.

Recently came upon this excellent interview which was released for the first time only a couple of months ago. Late Zappa interviews are some of his most open and interesting, and this one is unique in that it's purely about US media.

During that section I was too busy laughing at Frank's reaction to the news story to notice much else, not that I'm up on my US license plate knowledge anyway.

My non-classical listening (apart from occasional fill via Alexa) has overwhelmingly been revisitation of the YCDTOSA series.

:laugh:  Oh, fun!  Was he in the whole episode (a bit limited on time here)?

And, yes, I had read that he had died (either yesterday or the day before aged 78).  A very smart and clever guy.  For example, I read that he came up with a kind of precursor to MTV and to which he sold the rights.  His mother also invented "White Out" (used in typing for those who are too young to be familiar with it.  It was a way for "correcting" typos) and from what I recall, did quite well financially from that invention.

Cool.
I considered starting a Michael Nesmith RIP thread yesterday, but decided against it. I didn't follow his career closely, and never figured out what to think of the Monkees, but MN was definitely a highly intelligent, talented and accomplished guy.

Just in that open, I think.

oh, the poodle play of this thread ...

(Bruckner's) is the career of a poor village boy ... The one and only really surprising thing about him was that after completing his career as an organist he suddenly began to compose music with a range of vision which in such a man would appear quite incongruous.
