    At first I thought he was using a dungeon photo as a virtual background, but apparently Fripp Castle actually has a dungeon.

    These vids prove Fripp isn't the best guy to play covers. I've had students get closer to what was on the original than he did. I suspect Toyah is the one getting him to do these so she can sing a bit. Which is always nice.....

    Do you think he's trying to be faithful and missing or Fripperizing them? I'm sure he's just having some fun with something his wife wants to do. She's hellish impressive for a 62 year old.

    It's probably odd/weird/difficult playing these classic rock tunes in his special tuning. I even saw him do one in standard tuning a few weeks back, but the rest seem to be in his own tuning.

    she can probably murder him financially in case of divorce (no doubt the medias would set on her side), in case she doesn't get what she wants.

    But I'm sure he happily does some of it now, just to escape the bumblebee tights ... Plus who knows, that whip in Lotta Love is maybe his frenzied fancy.

    In either case, Frippy doesn't have that curmudgeon image anymore.

    The greats never should. But I still enjoy all these videos of fripp being silly.

    She looks pretty familiar with that whip.

    Kink Crimson: No longer just a typo, it's a way of life.

    Also, I guess I never realized that cheerleaders were even a thing outside of the US.

    DGM has shipped my 1969 box. I should get the “new Crimson box fondle” emoji ready.
    I want to dynamite your mind with love tonight.

    Being a cheerleader is most popular in the US. Dressing up like a cheerleader is popular everywhere.

    She wrote a book about it!

    It's called Diary of a Facelift.

    sadly (for Frippy anyways), it looks like it is the case. Iwatched a few minutes or her other vids on her dedicated site (Toyah at home or something like that) and it's relatively obvious. I suppose that for female TV and entertainment personnalities (i's her case), it's needed for them to remain at the top of the game. Oh well, if she's happy about it (and Frippy as well), good for them.

    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...-of-a-facelift

    I was actually gradually having more sympathy for her (as frippy seems less of a curmudgeon), but this cools me off a bit.
    Suddendly, I stopped envying Frippy since I know

    According to wiki, she also did voices in Teletubbies.

    I'm no plastic surgeon, but I would expect using Botox after a facelift would be disastrous. She doesn't have that "frozen face" Botox look, but if the book says so...
