Frank Zappa’s Joe’s Garage: The Play.. 2008

Warren Cuccurrulo saw the Joe’s Garage show and emailed me about it:

 

"I saw 'Joe’s GARAGE' on stage at the 'Open Fist Theatre' last night…. it is FUCKING AMAZING. this show FEELS so GOOD… Frank would have LOVED it… it IS a way of life… the SONGS!!! wow, they all work SO WELL in this format… the costumes are great, the colors are great, the singers are great & the musicians are PRETTY GOOD…. excellence…it should be seen by ALL… Frank lives on in a very powerful (& funny) way… prophetic to the MAX… JOE’S GARAGE, an orwellian nightmare, come TRUE… thanks for the heads up frank… but we WERE’NT paying enough ATTENTION… watch SEPTEMBER CLUES… say NO to MARSHALL LAW & the FASCIST police state… KILL UGLY MEDIA, NOW!!! wc"

 

ps. Greetings from Connecticut. Saw my Uncle Jack, Tom and the baby Jeremiah. Walked my pit bull Frankie for hours tonight. I am here for my class reunion. Rockville High School "awesome 80's reunion". So all classes from 1980-1989 may be there, may not. At $50 a ticket I bet it will be rather empty, folks round here aren't exactly rolling in dough and they've been taking a beating from the failing economy. Thanks Bush, You have lead our country down a path of war and poverty. Good going fucktard.

ps. Since my blog about September Clues, many of my youtube videos have been flagged and removed AND even some of my friends emailed me and told me (since that September Clues blog) "Dot, can you beleive the video I had of you as Mary in Wet T-shirt night" has been removed!??" That and many more. Hmmmmmm, funny, innit? "home of the free" ha ha.

Please email your Senators and Representatives now!

On Wednesday, George Bush went on TV to sweet-talk Americans into
letting him steal $700 billion of our tax dollars - $2,333 for every
man, woman, and child - to bail out his greedy rich friends on Wall
Street. Worst of all, it's another massive fraud. Bush lied to our
faces when he promised to buy toxic securities "at their current low
prices... and we expect that much, if not all, of the tax dollars we
invest will be paid back." Bull. This is the same administration that
promised the invasion of Iraq would pay for itself through lower oil
prices. The cost of that disaster is now $3 trillion and climbing, not
to mention millions dead, maimed, or exiled...Call your
Senators and Representative right now to say "No $700 Billion Bailout
for Wall Street" - dial the Capitol switchboard at 800-473-6711 or
202-224-3121 or dial direct using the instant phone lookup available
here. And if you have not emailed your Senators and Representative,
please do it now.

September Clues ( September 11th- TV Fakery)

Remember a couple of years ago when Mariah Carey had that breakdown because she wasn't sleeping enough? I am on the verge of such a breakdown right now. I met with Jasmine tonight briefly (as always, as she and I are both swamped) and she looked as stressed and as exhausted as I am. I thought to myself, this city is sucking all of the energy out of us. The noise for one, makes it almost impossible to have a conversation, whether it's on the phone or in person. The police sirens, trash trucks, people yelling, helicopters above, cars honking, omfg. Then you see all the homeless people sleeping on the streets, sometimes in cardboard boxes and begging on every corner for money. The potholes in the streets are sometimes so big, your front wheel gets STUCK in it and you have to get pulled out. Yesterday a bus side swiped my car (crashed mirror and scraped car) and didn't even slow down to look. I couldn't even follow him as I was parked and he had ran a red light. 

The US Government hasn't enough money to feed the poor and homeless folks here or even give it's people health insurance, fix the potholes, repair the UGLY fucking wooden telephone poles that are leaning like the tower of Pisa all over the place or update their power generators that are sometimes 30 years too old (hence the blackouts all the time) BUT they have enough money for a  $700 BILLION government bail out plan. Oh they HAVE money when they fucking need it (and where is this money coming from? the tax payers pockets of course) and this just after the $85 BILLION loan the Fed's gave to bail out the insurance firm AIG. Again, where do you think this money is coming from? They COULD be making the streets clean, safe, feeding the poor, giving those poor folks down south who got hit by Katrina a place to move into but NO, they are also busy spending money toying around with Iraq: $190 BILLION! 

I just can't BELIEVE the Americans aren't taking it to the streets to protest and demand the Government stops fucking us about! This is also draining me. They can fool most of the people most of the time, but can't fool ALL of the people all of the time. 

Speaking of "fooling the people". Ever hear of TV FAKERY? (first man on the moon, planes hitting pentagon and twin towers on Sept. 11th ?). Believe NONE of what you hear and only half of what you see. My Dad told me that when I was a little whipper snapper and I kept it in my head. Thanks Dad. 

 

Warren Cuccurullo , guitarist/Frank Zappa alumni and ex Duran Duran member asked me a couple of weeks ago to do him a favor. He wanted me to meet up with two friends/assistants of his and hire me to help hand out copies of the DVD called "September Clues "which Warren has helped finance, press and distribute. He supports this theory whole heartedly and if you talk to him about it, he can and will convince you how the US Government pulled the wool over the worlds eyes, yet again.

So I called his assistants, Ryan and Nico (who happens to be German) and met them on a night I had already had plans for with my friend Chris Opperman and some other buddies. We all at Iggys and went karaoke bar hopping together. To be honest, when I met Ryan and Nico, it was loud and I was more into having fun (which I seldom get to do anymore) than hearing what the hell the dvd was about that I agreed to help distribute a couple days later at Times Square. 

 

Brooke, my favorite karaoke DJ and local friend ^ (remember Brooke from my Foreigner blogs?)

After a few hours, Ryan  (left) , Nico (right) and I got along great and did have fun at our spontaneous meeting/night out ^

Ryan asked to pose with me. I feel like a snob if I don't agree. Everyone asks me to pose with them for a picture. I have to do it I guess and there are only so many ways to pose. I am fucking tired of being photographed. Soon I will just start saying "do we have to?" but then I will be labeled a "diva" or "snob". What to do? Some write to me and whine about my frown, or pose, hello? I can't fucking smile all the time, sorry, I am not on Prozac like most Americans and I barely EVER even drink. I am not an actress. I smile when I want to smile, fart when I need to fart, look serious when I want to, sleep when I want, etc.. know what I mean? If you knew what a day in my life was like, you would understand why I am not always grinning from ear to ear. I am SWAMPED and ready to have a nervous breakdown, so lighten up please, I have enough pressure. I am cranky as FUCK and need sleep, but instead of sleeping I am writing a blog which cost nothing to read, look at it that way and maybe you can at least smile even if I'm not.  Calgon take me away .

Now that I am done bitching about looking bitchy, this ^ pic is Chris ( Chris Opperman ) holding UP a lovely hot blonde he met and made out with just hours earlier. I think her face looks like Cameron Diaz in that movie the Mask. 

Um, you meet ALL sorts at karaoke. I guessed those two heavy metal dudes would probably sing Alice Cooper and hello, I was right. They belted out POISON -Love that song. 

 

 Chris is a chick magnet ^

 

   Um, Nico really REALLY gets into it when he does karaoke. He started a trend. All the guys did it after he did. 

 

One of the waitresses was sporting this stash ^ I badly wanted to draw a tiny Zappa goatee on her chin but left my sharpie at home. 

 

After a few karaoke stops we ended up at LIT ^ . It has the BEST sound EVER of all karaoke bars in NYC BUT, as it's name leads on, every one LIT up a fucking cigarette and/or a joint. Not many bars allow smoking in NYC but this one does and MAN is it smoky!!! I barely ever go there as my eyes are blood red by the time I leave and you have to wait for ages to sing. If you don't give the DJ money ($20) you can just pull up a chair and wait for HOURS. 

 

Anyhow, after our lovely night out, I called Warren, the night before our little performance. Ryan and Nico gave me an outfit that Warren picked out for me to wear. I am willing to help ALL FRANK ZAPPA ALUMNI whenever they need it as I LOVE THEM! I wanted to know why it had to be Sept. 11th, "why can't we do it next week?"I asked as I was so beat. Warren was like IT HAS TO BE TOMORROW! So I said ok. I picked his brain a bit about the topic. He speaks so fast and I can only type so fast, but here are some of his quotes (everything in blue is Warren speaking). I tried to get all of what he was saying, he knew I was typing but is so passionate about things, it's hard to keep up with him.. (wonder if that is how he is in bed too?) heh heh.

 "there were no planes people, get used to it….it sucks, but get used to it. you don't believe me, fine, go to the bureau of transportation statistics and look up the flights. You will find that flight 11 and 77 never took off…check this site out for yourself: www.bts.gov   (ODDLY enough that site is RARELY UP- you would think the fucking Government has enough money to have a decent web site, but no, they are too busy spending it elsewhere)

go to "On-Time: Search by Flight Number, Airline, or Airport"
search for those flights, they never took off.
Ask yourselves if an aluminum tube can smash, without resistance, through steel buildings !!!"

 

Warren Currollo of the Social Service, Nico Haupt, funded the distribution, shipping, printing of the September Clues DVD.

 

"Sept. 11th was deception operation designed to trick us into believing we were being attacked by high-jacking Muslim extremist. The final phase they were ushering in a very very old agenda, scientific global Dictator – read "brave new world " by  Aldous Huxley   ( the government used this as an excuse to go to war- its not even politics!"

 

cutting through the matrix.com

 

We're living through a business plan and this is the final fucking phase. This country is designed now. China is the world cop (read agenda 21 !)

We have been lead down the garden psycho path by the leading psycho path. 

Watch 911 Octopus 8 , then  watch '911 amatur 2

 We have been brainwashed by the media, Hollywood and TV is the weapon, we are the targets. TURN OFF THE FUCKING TV. There is a reason it's called Programming" "the world is run by a big fucking mafia. It's not the US states government, it's the UK Government, IT's about the Big guys against the little guys. THey are the aristocraots, big bankers. WHen they say old money, they mean it, that meanst their blood runs way back, They traces themselves back to the pharos, they are the leaders, the rulers, that darwins the huxlyes the wedgewoods, they intermarried, Galtons, for like 4 generations thinking they would create the greatest men. Their religion isn't protestant,   it's lucifarien, the light barer

The hellfire club, it's just the tip of the fucking ice berg. They are exactly the opposite as they portray themselves to be. Lucifarian boy-banger, likes em under the age of 11.  Tony Blair is the fucking best actor of all time. The UK is Great Britain, British Empire, don't blame American, blame, they are running show. They always have,  it's a global Dictator ship, being run by the UK. But they don't come out and say it, but they pretty much have everyone going along with it. Even Margret Thatcher, at least she came out and says it, "the new world order" and the "shadow government". These are the people who run this world.. The "Club of Rome". I like to call the Think Tanks, the Stink Tanks. China is destined to take over as the world cop. It used to be us, it will soon be China.Politicians are merely the actors. They turned up the pot baby and suddenly, whats that smell, oh, it's our asses. 

 

You didn't see a plane crashing into any buildings honey, it was all TV fakery, even footage from some cell phones were trickery, they were working all together..

 

American people were so mad when they found out Milli Vanilli wasn't really singing on their record, but yet they watch fake news ALL the time.

 

Religion SUCKS!I'm an equal opportunity Religion Hater!!!" (I agree!)

 Ryan, the Naked Cowboy and Me at Times Square (it was surreal!)

 Nico was filming us, this is from the video camera actually

 

 

I wonder what the Naked Cowboy does for a living in the winter? Is he a stripper? Does he migrate South? All of these questions I had, but sadly no time to ask, he was busy SCREAMING at the tourist to "Watch the cars people, don't watch me!!" as they were so hysterical, they almost got ran over trying to take pics. 

 

 

Oh yes, I forgot to explain the outfit. Warren is clever. He obviously knew the best way to get attention in NYC is to appear NUDE. NO OUTFITS will get anyone's attention in NYC, they have seen it all. There are hari-krishnas skipping around, punks, thugs, rappers, rockers, business men, models, cops, firemen, omg, it's Short Attention Span Central indeed. SO, the day of Sept. 11th I finally had a look at the outfit Nico and Ryan gave me from Warren and HELLO, I was having second thoughts, but couldn't let down Zappa alumni. For me, they are family. So I dragged my late night ass out of bed "early" at noon (hey, I got to bed at 7-8am you know that by now I hope). I painted my lips, eyes and tried to do something with my hair (not good with hair at ALL) and drove like a bat outta hell to Times Square. I had to park 5 blocks away and leave basically everything in my car so I would appear NUDE from a distance and get the people's attention so they come over and read our banner and get our dvd (for free).

So, I head to Times Square, titties bouncing around, camel toe in action, walking as fast as I can as Nico and Ryan were burning up my phone "where are you Dr. Dot!??". EVERYONE was fucking staring and I mean EVERYONE. Good thing I don't get embarrassed easily. I just held head up, focused and walked thinking "this is all somehow for Frank Zappa so I have to do it). Twisted as FUCK ain't I? "Hear comes that screamin' sound again…"

 

Ok, I knew what I had to WEAR and that I was passing out DVD's for free (Warren paid me by the way, generously). BUT I didn't know I would be helping hold up a banner that read "No Planes hit WTC". I am sure the people who lost people in that event are so grief stricken they don't even want to research any other concepts/truths and if they see such a banner they may get filled with rage, so I was a bit nervous when I saw the banner. Thing is, it is true there were no fucking airplane parts found after a plane supposedly hit the Pentagon, not even a fucking wheel, so something is fishy as fuck! But Nico is German and his English is far from perfect so when some doubters were hackling him, he couldn't defend himself and the theory fast enough and I hadn't had time up to this point to really research the facts to help him out. Sigh. I knew how he felt as that is how I am when I get tightly wound up in Berlin and a German is arguing with me and I get frustrated as the madder I get the worse my German comes out. UGH!! It's hard to argue in a different language.

 

Nico is highly misunderstood. People who are too ignorant to even RESEARCH the facts scathe him unfairly. Like HE blew up the fucking towers or something. He has invested ALL of his time and money and is absolutely broke now trying to open some eyes.  Before you judge, research. That is all I can say. I am fra from gullible, it's REALLY hard to fool me and Warren and Nico and the other thousands that have been hushed by the Government do have a good point. Should we just believe everything the fucking TV tells us? I hate TV. If I want to watch something I buy it from iTunes and watch it without commercials. In Berlin I do watch the news as I feel the need to hear spoken English and to be in the "loop" but I know I am being fed bullshit when it comes to anything to do with Religon and Politics. Once again, Frank Zappa hit the nail on the head in his lyrics to the song "I am the Slime" (which I sang with Chris Opperman once at one of his NYC shows a couple years ago)

"I am gross and perverted
Im obsessed n deranged
I have existed for years
But very little had changed
I am the tool of the government
And industry too
For I am destined to rule
And regulate you

I may be vile and pernicious
But you cant look away
I make you think Im delicious
With the stuff that I say
I am the best you can get
Have you guessed me yet?
I am the slime oozin out
From your tv set

You will obey me while I lead you
And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we dont need you
Dont got for help…no one will heed you
Your mind is totally controlled
It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold

Thats right, folks..
Dont touch that dial"

 

Top 10 reasons why no planes hit the WTC on 9/11/01

(source: http://www.911hoax.com/Top_Lists_911.asp)

Folks, on 9/11/01 the TV networks lied to the world about planes striking the World Trade Center.

<Fake, fake, fake!




1.  Planes are made of light materials like aluminum and fiberglass. Think of them as long beer cans. Even birds can give planes problems.
 
2.  There were many steel core columns supporting both of the Twin Towers. No plane could enter such a structure without being completely destroyed.
 
3.  Two planes were depicted as being inside and intact the Twin Towers, a pair of buildings made with 200,000 tons of steel each.
 
4.  Eyewitnesses: Very few people in New York's business district actually had a decent view of the South Tower of the WTC. Only a few thousand people at most would have been able to see the South Tower explode. The author of this website has interviewed people who do not believe that they saw a plane strike the South Tower.

Meanwhile, it was a simple matter for the TV networks to keep the eyewitnesses who didn't see a plane off the air.

 
5.  Both Boeing 767s (i.e., Flights 11 and 175, which supposedly struck the North and South Towers respectively) have 165 foot wingspans. Meanwhile, both the North and South Towers were 210 feet wide. We're supposed to believe that both planes were entirely inside the tower they hit, with no pieces showing, with only 45 feet of room to spare!
 
6.  United Airlines Flight 175 was shown entering the South Tower like a ghost. When the tip of the plane's fuselage hits the steel exterior of the South Tower the fuselage should be breaking up. That would cause the wings to break off.
 
7.  Newton's Third Law of Motion states that "To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.". Let's apply Newton's Third Law to Flight 175. In the 9/11/01 story, Flight 175 strikes the the South Tower at 450 m.p.h.

Now imagine that the South Tower moved at 450 m.p.h. and struck a stationary Flight 175. We would not expect that Flight 175 would be undamaged. We would not expect that it would simply disappear into the South Tower.

 
8.  There was no audio of 'Flight 175' striking the South Tower. This is true even though there were about a dozen videos of the event said to be obtained from lucky amateurs.
 
9.  There are innumerable contradictions with the news reports of planes striking the WTC. (The author's writing is here.) Just a cursory examination of the 911 news reports can reveal dramatic inconsistencies.
 
10.  There has been massive censorship of the 911 Hoax. Dozens of media sources have exercized a zero tolerance policy for any suggestion that no planes struck the WTC before it was vaporized from exotic weaponry and nuclear weapons.

Why would CBS, The New York Times, The History Channel, Indmedia.org and YouTube.com be censoring the idea so aggressively if real planes hit the Twin Towers?

Save the Endangered Species Act


Center for Biological Diversity

Call Congress Today to Save the Endangered Species ActUSCaptiol


Please take five minutes today to urge Congress to stop the Bush administration from gutting the Endangered Species Act. It may be the most important call you make this year.

This week, Congress has the opportunity to take action against the devastating changes the Bush administration is trying to push through at the 11th hour to cripple our nation's strongest species conservation law. Senator Barbara Boxer is holding a Congressional hearing entitled "The Bush Administration Environmental Record at the Department of Interior and Environmental Protection Agency" on Wednesday, September 24.

Congress needs to hear NOW from thousands of Americans who passionately support the Endangered Species Act.
Tell your representatives to go to the hearing and stop the administration from destroying the United States' most successful legal tool for saving species from extinction.

Dial the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for the offices of your members of Congress or click here to find your representatives.

Tips for your phone calls:
1. Let your representatives know who you are, which city you live in, and that you're calling to urge them to oppose the gutting of the Endangered Species Act.
2. Mention that the new regulations would:
• exempt thousands of potentially dangerous federal activities from review;
• eliminate the checks and balances provided by independent oversight.
3. Remind your representatives about Wednesday's environmental hearing and ask them to participate.
4. Thank your representatives for their time.

Please call your members of Congress today and tell them that Americans don't want the Endangered Species Act to be gutted. Then click here to let us know when you've made the call.

Frank Zappa- timeless

You know I am hiding from you right? I know I have to blog, I know, I KNOW. I massaged Kim Raver (24/Lipstick Jungle) tonight for two hours.. coolest thing ever- she has a video baby monitor, looks like a walkie talkie, but you can push a button and see a screen that shows her baby (11 months old) in bed, in the other room. Tiny camera above bed has infra-red abilities and you can see the cutie lying there sleeping.

You can hear it too. He started crying once and we could see her husband picking up the baby, making the baby calm again and then putting baby back to sleep. OMFG. All this modern tech. makes me want to have another one so I can see how easy it CAN be. (I did everything the hard way- cotton diapers, no dryer, couldn't speak the language yet, didn't know any one and baby's dad and I were too broke to pay attention). No internet, no cell, just land line. jeeze, looks easier now somehow. Baby is sick? Google the fucking symptoms and you're golden. Cool! I had to drag baby all the way across town to a German doctor and struggle with the language (mostly sign at that point) lol.

 

Kim is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO gorgeous. I can't help thinking how many men I know would PAY to massage her. Schwing. 

 

 
   

 Kim is a regular client of mine, she is so mad cool and smart as a whip too. Her husband is one lucky man I tell you. I am all over the place, going to massage Motorhead the next couple days and Herbie Hancock again next week, no time for sleep. omg. It's 6am and I still have like 503 unread emails to answer. FLIPPING OUT. 

 

I was just reading the lyrics to an OLD Frank Zappa song and hey, they still hold true to this day in the state we are in..

Frank was a smart Mo Fo!

"Mr. america, walk on by your schools that do not teach
Mr. america, walk on by the minds that wont be reached
Mr. america try to hide the emptiness thats you inside
But once you find that the way you lied
And all the corny tricks you tried
Will not forestall the rising tide of hungry freaks daddy!

They wont go on four no more
Great mid-western hardware store
Philosophy that turns away
From those who arent afraid to say whats on their minds
The left behinds of the great society

Hungry freaks, daddy!

Mr. america, walk on by your supermarket dream
Mr. america, walk on by the liquor store supreme
Mr. america try to hide the product of your savage pride
The useful minds that it denied
The day you shrugged and stepped aside
You saw their clothes, and then you cried,
Those hungry freaks, daddy!

They wont go on four no more
Great mid-western hardware store
Philosophy that turns away
From those who arent afraid to say whats on their minds
The left behinds of the great societ"

RIP Richard Wright (founding member of Pink Floyd dies)

Cry

Pink Floyd Keyboardist Richard Wright Dead At 65

Founding member and songwriter had a 'short struggle with cancer,' spokesperson says.

Founding Pink Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright died in England on Monday (September 15) at the age of 65 after a battle with cancer. No further information about the cause of Wright's death was available at press time, according to The Associated Press.

"The family of Richard Wright, founder member of Pink Floyd, announce with great sadness, that Richard died … after a short struggle with cancer," read a statement from a spokesperson. "The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this difficult time."

The self-taught keyboardist met bassist Roger Waters and drummer Nick Mason in architecture school and in 1964 joined their group Sigma 6, which eventually evolved into the Pink Floyd Sound. With the addition of late singer/guitarist Syd Barrett — who left the band in 1968 and died in 2006 of cancer — the group, now called Pink Floyd, began its rise as one of the most creative and powerful psychedelic bands on the British scene.

In that early period, along with Barrett, Wright was a major musical engine driving the band's pioneering experimental sound, penning the songs "The Great Gig in the Sky" and "Us and Them" on Floyd's legendary 1973 black-light rock opus, Dark Side of the Moon. He also added key vocals to the 1971 20-plus minute epic, "Echoes." He made significant contributions to the songs "Atom Heart Mother" and the Barrett tribute "Shine on You Crazy Diamond." However, along with Gilmour and Mason, Wright found his contributions diminishing as Waters increasingly dominated the band's songwriting and direction.

In a group whose history is rife with decades-long grudges, Wright was not immune to the inter-band drama, splitting with Floyd in 1979 during sessions for The Wall, due to his strained relationship with Waters. He returned to the group as a paid session musician for shows in 1980 and 1981, but he was not included on 1983's The Final Cut, the only Floyd album on which he didn't appear. Following Waters' departure, Wright rejoined the band in 1988. He played keyboards and sang on A Momentary Lapse of Reason and co-wrote five songs on 1994's The Division Bell.

Wright, who performed on every Floyd tour, was also onstage in 2005, when the surviving members of the band played a rapturously received reunion gig at the Live 8 concert. Wright released a handful of solo albums and appeared on records by Barrett, and he had been performing regularly with Floyd singer/guitarist David Gilmour.
