    I think a Mike Ratledge wig with the side pieces of his glasses on the outside of the hair is a more sellable option.

    I laughed out loud at this.

    Amen.

    I'm still going to buy it, but with a little more sadness than I should have at such a set.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    I don't see why they can't also release a set with just the CDs, which is all I want. Anyone who wants the full set with the silly extras would still be free to buy that one instead.

    We’re all going to buy it, right? I mean. Come on. So let’s do this.

    When we order from Wayside, we’ll ask Steve F. to send us the discs and the booklet and, like, some sleeves, and he can keep the rest of the shit. Now that’d be some goddamn customer service!

    And all of those masks and shit? Wayside could open one of those Halloween shops that pop in abandoned Dollar Trees every October.

    Win fucking win.
    I want to dynamite your mind with love tonight.

    Your solution is too simple. It will never work.

    My Mother told me if I kept up with the path I was following, that I’d end up in an abandoned Dollar Tree....I’m sorry I didn’t listen, Mom!!!

    I am a big Zappa fan, I have most vinyls until 'Sheik YB', I have bought everything ( mostly) on Ryko when it was firsr released on CD, I have rebought most of the 2012 remasters , I have bought some of the post releases ...I stopped completely listening to music in transport due to a problem with my inner ear. I had to wear ear plug filters and even now I just keep the filters to blend out the noise and stupid conversations. Anyway, nowadays my favourite (and often only) music moment is about 20 minutes in the morning when I am ironing a shirt and prepare stuff for the day. I listen often to one side of a vinyl , mostly favourite records (quite often Zappa) and I am less and less interested in another boxset with unreleased concerts/ demos/ runthroughs...of my favourite artists. So I'll get probably the Orchestral Favourites ....

    Not quite so excited now that I see the price, lol. Anyway, I thought this was cool:
