the world is a poorer place without Frank Zappa
that the squares of the Navy Band could square the circle and celebrate such a genius weirdo gives me hope

Notes from the link… it’s a kickstarter, and there was a pitch on OyBay to sell Frank Zappa’s house from 1968 onward which I just learned is 3000 ft from where I lived until the age of 3. Alas, they let it go in August for a mere $5 1/4 million.

But also, the film’s being coproduced by Alex Winters which brings to mind one of the best four word film reviews of all time:

Bill S. Preston, Vampire.
