I've been having a fight with my mother for the past couple of weeks as she doesn't like Frank Zappa. She likes simpler stuff, power-chord rock, heavy stuff, she's not into psychedelia or stuff too "looney". I've been trying to show her a Zappa song she would like, but she doesn't enjoy Peaches En Regalia, Willie the Pimp, Andy, The Grand Wazoo, The Duke of Prunes, Po-Jama People, Camarilllo Brillo, Inca Roads, King Kong. But after all of my efforts of trying to shove him down her throat I finally found a Zappa song she loved so I'm celebrating over itstuart-sutcliffeLong live Zappa

Maybe she'd like 'Joe's Garage'? 

I've been on a big Simon & Garfunkel kick lately, particularly Bridge Over Troubled Water, but right now I'm listening to Kanye's 'Homecoming'.

Get a copy of Freak Out, it's not as "looney" as some of his collection, but it's full of intense social satire...

She's 51, came of age during the 80s along with MTv so it's no wonder she's the total opposite to prime Zappa as her favourite type of music is either heavy metal or disco-pop.

I will first chance I get. It's not so easy playing her that stuff, well, because nobody wants to hear something they don't like constantly, so I really have to pick my moments to try and get any music like that around hera-hard-days-night-paul-4

I’ve got a friend that always tries to turn me onto aggressive alternative music during every single music conversation and it does get quite annoying. Sometimes I just like what I like and he’s got to listen to his shit by himself some other time.

Dancin' Fool, is Disco Pop at least musically. Should be right up her alley.

I can't find "The Ressurection of Lazarus" as referenced in the graveyard scene of "The Phantom of the Opera" in the original novel, but this one's close enough, for now. 

I too wish to be visited by the Angel of Music one day, though that wish is probably a futile one.

Fixing a hole where the rain gets in during my spare time.

Fixing a hole in the ocean if I'm daring enough.

Doesn't really stop my wandering mind.

I just really like repairing stuff
