<Fr_Oblivious> Me, being the best bassist this side of the Miss, welcomes Scott
bluntman^ is now known as arfbarker
<GeoScott> oh how you do go on
<GeoScott> but thanks
<Fr_Oblivious> Welcome, Scot
<Furbelly> this show you were grabbing... FZ mentioned something about you staying behind in Europe?
<GeoScott> was thinking about that yesterday
<GeoScott> as an old friend stopped by
<GeoScott> and we had both 'knew' the girl I stayed there with
<GeoScott> flew her over. first time and all
<GeoScott> what a nightmare
<GeoScott> LooooooooNG story
<Fr_Oblivious> oh, do tell
<GeoScott> the flight back was worth a chapter in my forthcoming autobiography
<GeoScott> Oh, no time, no time
<GeoScott> i mean, the flight from Rome to Germany
<Furbelly> excellent, you're writing a book then?
<GeoScott> stopped in Canne to have lunch with Bennet and the flight crew
<Fr_Oblivious> you playing now?
<GeoScott> well, thinking of writing it, at least
<GeoScott> no, no playing.
<Furbelly> does music still interest you?
<GeoScott> unless, of course, you have a million-selling rock band I could whore myself out for
<Fr_Oblivious> WAIT! I DO!
<GeoScott> i play the piano at home quite a log
<GeoScott> of course you do
<GeoScott> we all do.
<GeoScott> IN OUR MINDS
<^Chunga^> not that I'm dropping names ;) ...but I'm gonna see Ike in a few days...any messages for him? Do I say hello or just wave w/1 finger?
<GeoScott> you guys all seen the book, In Cold Sweat?
<GeoScott> WAVE ONE FUCKING FINGER
<GeoScott> did you read the jambands interview?
<GeoScott> what a cock
<Fr_Oblivious> Seems all my homeys are cocks
<GeoScott> universally known as The Single Most Annoying Zappa Band Member Ever...
<GeoScott> if you don't count Eddie Jobson's bad breath
<GeoScott> (that's straight from FZ, so don't blame me)
<Furbelly> dog breath indeed
* Fr_Oblivious is glad he's logging this
<^Chunga^> we point the finger at no1
<^Chunga^> we're only in it for the music
<GeoScott> you can publish for all I care
<GeoScott> I knew that
<Furbelly> Scott, I must say I got a great charge out of you in the DHBIM video
<GeoScott> just made the wife watch it the other day
<Fr_Oblivious> me too
<Furbelly> when you cross your eyes during Be In My Video, I damn near wet myself
<GeoScott> of course, I don't remember doing any of that stuff
<GeoScott> I was thinking of ONE THING that whole two day period
<Fr_Oblivious> of course
<GeoScott> Can you guess what that was?
<GeoScott> ...i met...
<GeoScott> A GIRL
<Furbelly> your future wife?
<^Chunga^> oh..that too
<GeoScott> and I knew she was in the audience but hadn't seen her yet
<GeoScott> no, before my first wife, but I did end up with her for three and a half years
<GeoScott> well, Ike has some good points
<Fr_Oblivious> that's why your eyes looked crossed?
<GeoScott> he's fun to be on the road with..sort of
<GeoScott> but 88...well, that was one giant problem, and Ike was...if not instrumental
<GeoScott> in helping to add tension to the situation, was deeply insensitive to his own position as a loud mouth
<GeoScott> I'm not saying I'm perfect, Mind you...
^Chunga^> yer not?!
<Fr_Oblivious> I'll say it for you
<GeoScott> I pretty much was as much an asshole as they say I was, but I was MISINTERPRETED
<Furbelly> well, you're perfect on the show you're getting, hehe
<GeoScott> I loved 82
<GeoScott> great great great memories, and we were fucking tight, if anything
<Furbelly> I do have another one where you seemed to be a little... overzealous
<GeoScott> do tell
--> satai has joined #zappafiles
<Furbelly> you came in early on the Mammy Nun anthem, and FZ stopped the show
--- ^Chunga^ gives voice to satai
<GeoScott> i like me overzealous
<GeoScott> oh, that kind
<GeoScott> I don't remember stopping a show for a mistake. That's EXCELLENT!
<Furbelly> I thought he was a little harsh
<satai> hey hey
<GeoScott> Does anybody remember (have the tape of) my wrong note at the end of WDIHWIP?
<GeoScott> That would be priceless.
<Fr_Oblivious> that's a mess of letters
<^Chunga^> what show was that Fur?
<Furbelly> hm, do you know which tour it was Scott?
<GeoScott> don't 'member, that's my problem
<GeoScott> oh, 88
<^Chunga^> Jimbo prolly knows
<Furbelly> Jimbo knows all
<Furbelly> if you're gonna be wrong, be wrong with conviction
<GeoScott> Frank liked that too.
<Furbelly> hehe, probably... he's probably got a bootleg of her somewhere
<satai> When I play we call those "improv's." ;-)
<Fr_Oblivious> and enjoy it
<^Chunga^> no...Jimbo knows what show tha twas I bet
<GeoScott> you know the adage, once is a mistake, twice is choreography
<Fr_Oblivious> dance the blooz again
<Furbelly> that's why I always play a wrong note twice in succession
<^Chunga^> sometimes more
<Fr_Oblivious> I LEARN the wrong note
<GeoScott> i was sure frank said that, and then i saw a nigel tufnel interview where he said the same damn thing...
<Furbelly> well, if the Tap ever offers you a drumming gig, don't take it
<GeoScott> is everyfockingbody a bass player?
<Furbelly> not me
<satai> I play the tuba, actually, so not quite bass.
<^Chunga^> haha u do ?
<Furbelly> guitar, keyboards, trumpet and french horn here
<GeoScott> shit, you got an extra one? I would honestly love to own, learn how to play, a tuba
<satai> yup. not very good, but i can go really loud.
<GeoScott> I'll come over to your fucking house to pick it up
<Fr_Oblivious> so would I
<satai> GeoScott: man, if i did it'd be in the mail. :-)
<GeoScott> ain't no tubas round here...
<Fr_Oblivious> mama dont allow
<^Chunga^> dont be suprised if Santa brings one w/a #zappafiles ta gon it
<satai> i always wanted to learn to play the tuba line from that old Peter&Gordon song "Lady Godiva," but i never got around to it. ;-)
<GeoScott> my mother used to complain about my friend joe and I learning string bass together
<GeoScott> thought it sounded like 'dying cows'
<GeoScott> thanks ma
<Furbelly> hey, I've had that comment before too!
<Fr_Oblivious> Shoulda got a washtub
<Furbelly> and that was with my guitar yet
<GeoScott> post lady godiva, and I'll learn it on my bugle, and put an octave divider on it
<^Chunga^> Hmmm...then he'd be Scott Thubanes
<Furbelly> So who did you get along with from the FZ days, Scott?
<GeoScott> well, MK, obviously
<Fr_Oblivious> Mark King?
<GeoScott> but bobby and i never ever had one cross word betwixt us
<GeoScott> ahh, the real MK stood up
<Furbelly> Bobby was supposed to come by too
<GeoScott> Ray and I had great times
<GeoScott> I haven't spoken to him in..oh..dear me. EVER,
<Furbelly> yeah... then he said he was upgrading his computer and refinancing his place and I haven't heard from him since
<Furbelly> but he was enthused about the idea
<GeoScott> what a pooper
<satai> must have upgraded to windows XP
<Fr_Oblivious> ME anyway
<GeoScott> until we all tell him that we don't subscribe to Ayn Rands shit, then he'd put us all down and divorce us
<satai> A is A
<Fr_Oblivious> A A A\
<GeoScott> Sorry gents, I will be back in a moment
<GeoScott> have to brush Hazle's teef
<satai> anybody here collect phish? i'm thinking about picking up a couple of the live releases they're putting out.
<^kingv^> no thanks
<arfbarker> none here
* satai shrugs.
<GeoScott> you hit a cold spot there, mate
<Fr_Oblivious> I collect Phish, but I keep it
<satai> damn right. ;-)
<satai> everytime i bring up Napalm Death they give me the same looks. ;-)
<GeoScott> I'm thinking of Cannibal Corpse
<satai> "Sodomy with a Meat Hook"
<Fr_Oblivious> Carnal Bliss
<satai> Hey Scott, has the FAQ section on the web page sort of fallen off?
<Furbelly> I've got Phish doing Peaches En Regalia
<Fr_Oblivious> me too
<Fr_Oblivious> Saw them do it live... not bad
<GeoScott> what was that A is A stuff?
<Fr_Oblivious> Alphabet song
<satai> A is A is Ayn Randian philosophy
<satai> something about absolute truth or some other nonsense
<GeoScott> Well, no, It's just that there aren't any more FA'd Qs. Got any?
<GeoScott> ahh, thanks
<Furbelly> what did you enjoy playing on the most?
<satai> GeoScott: course i do. they're just all stupid.
<GeoScott> I was going to say that!
<satai> Furbelly: MK said once he didn't think too much of the Peaches by Phish, cuz they did the intro wrong.
<GeoScott> There are no Stupid Questions, only Unfrequently Asked Ones!
<Furbelly> I meant... did you enjoy playing with FZ more, or the Vandals, or Z... or is it even comparable?
<GeoScott> Ahh. He is indeed a particularist
<GeoScott> I'm pretty much of that philosophy, but if it's wrong, they might have...DONE IT ONPURPOSE!
<satai> Do you listen to any of his current stuff?
<Fr_Oblivious> neat word,,, particularist
<Furbelly> to me, the Phish one just sounds woefully underehearsed
<satai> i wake up to Live in Japan.
<GeoScott> that is a good idea
<GeoScott> very big
<GeoScott> You would think that Phish would do something 'amazing' to it, just to kick it
<Furbelly> I wake up to the phone ringing with the voice on the other end going "why the fuck aren't you at work yet?"
<GeoScott> instead of being...no offense...pedestrian?
<satai> i'd have liked to hear them do something vocally, like the others.
<Furbelly> I thought the Dregs rendition of Peaches was pretty good
<satai> yeah, like a stoned jamband or something.
<satai> hm, searching for Scott Thunes on ebay turns up no results. unexpected.
<GeoScott> you have to use the 'search body of text' thingie
<GeoScott> and just use thunes
<GeoScott> that works for me
<GeoScott> but you
<GeoScott> would have all that stuff already
<GeoScott> its usually just the boots
-- fuckadoodledoo is now known as Furbelly
<GeoScott> ahh. i don't sell anything. I'm a fucking pacrat
<Furbelly> great, what a perfect time to get disconnected
<GeoScott> did I crash you?
<Furbelly> you played on the Western Vacation album Scott?
<^Chunga^> yeah...he just told a great story too ;P
<GeoScott> i thought that might have been what happened?
<Furbelly> nope... but it still looks like you're not getting anything from the ftp
<zspazz> so you did what to her with the tuning fork?
<GeoScott> sure. marty is one of my oldest and dearest friends
<Furbelly> ah, there it is
<GeoScott> came back1
<Furbelly> actually got word from Thana Harris about coming by... but she didn't really grasp the concept
<^Chunga^> Furs prolly squeezing the cord to get you to sta yhere if I know him
<Furbelly> hey now, I ain't squeezin' nobody's cord
<satai> wish my CD player worked. Sleep Dirt is the only FZ CD within reach.
<GeoScott> when I became friends with marty, i was staying in bob and thanas room at stucco blue
<GeoScott> get up!
<Squirm> just found some zappa i didn't know i had...
Chunga^ just got done listening to June 18 82 London
<satai> actually, i haven't listened to the Thing Fish demos since the listening session.
<satai> i'm going to put those on.
<Furbelly> I had e-mailed Thana that we were going to be listening to a Santa Monica show that Bob was part of. I had described the whole IRC thing, and how she could get files and such...
<GeoScott> what the hell is a thingfish demo?
<Furbelly> she replied that they weren't in the Santa Monica area, but thanks for asking
<GeoScott> 'you can still hear the show, thana, if you really try!...
<Squirm> what does WOIIFTM stand for?
<Furbelly> we're only in it for the money
<Furbelly> damn Scott, it's too bad popeye-x left just before you got here
<GeoScott> yeah, fug him
<satai> GeoScott: a couple demos from the Thing Fish sessions, or so i'm told.
<^Chunga^> "Thingfish" (Premix)
<^Chunga^> 90 min, A-
<^Chunga^> Many differences and additional tracks compared to the official release
<GeoScott> he's a very nice guy
<Furbelly> seemed like a nice enough guy
<Fr_Oblivious> Looked like a NYU student
<GeoScott> never had a harsh word.
<GeoScott> he looked like a Seal Beach resident.
<Fr_Oblivious> or Berkely
<GeoScott> of course, He WAS...
<GeoScott> berkeley? or Berklee!=?
<GeoScott> the latter
<GeoScott> acted like one too
<GeoScott> far to enthusiastic
<satai> GeoScott: do you have a favorite recording of a classical piece? like Rite of Spring, or something?
<Furbelly> po-jama people
<GeoScott> yeah, but what are they liking instead?
<Fr_Oblivious> wrap em up
<satai> Shostakovich is the only one that's coming to mind right now.
<GeoScott> satai: You mean, a favorite classical piece? I thought you meant a specific performance.
<satai> Yeah, I meant specific performance.
<GeoScott> he's a heavy standard.
<satai> I think I just got muddled in the conversation.
<Fr_Oblivious> just you
<Furbelly> just checking
<GeoScott> My favorite thing was hanging out at UCLA music lab listening to Elliott Carter, and some idjit comes in and says, And I Quote:
<GeoScott> 'There has been no music written since Mahler'
<GeoScott> so there you go
<Furbelly> that line that's finer than the hair I've got left
satai just remembered he has to review Things Falling Apart for tomorrow
<Fr_Oblivious> geez, fur, you're the kid here
<GeoScott> I saw the steam table, and the spatula, and just thought...
<GeoScott> Why Not?
<Furbelly> I'm sure there's more than just the released shows that FZ captured on video during your tenure, can you recall any other shows that were filmed?
<Furbelly> and not released
* Fr_Oblivious is listening to 84-3-11 late
<GeoScott> you mean besides barcelona?
* Furbelly has Barcelona on his hard drive
<satai> I lost my copy of the Freddie Mercury Barcelona album.
<satai> sorry for the nearly-non-sequitor. ;-)
<Furbelly> when Lady Bianca was here, she mentioned that FZ filmed the band when she was in it too... that nugget of information was unknown until then
* Fr_Oblivious reaches for Furbelly's Harddrive
<GeoScott> No, thank you!
<GeoScott> see yez
,Fr_Oblivious> Nice to meet you Scott!
<Furbelly> no no, thank you!
<^kingv^> see ya man
<Furbelly> hit the ftp whenever you want
<GeoScott> dig it
<^Chunga^> Happy Holidays if we dont see you to u & yer family
<Furbelly> and if you can come by for the session tomorrow, that would be wonderful
