Cheers Just wandering thru/ough search terms & putting those things that interest me to one side (here) for later consideration, like this one...



A 1.5 litre 2 stroke, which I'm guessing is two TZ750 engines grafted together* for drag racing? I'm endlessly fascinated by such aberrations, which are way beyond me.

I've never been into drag racing, tho/ough I'll watch it if there's nothing else on the motorsports channels. I only went to a live event once, and I can see the appeal of the fire & screaming engines close up, but on this occasion the first run of the day resulted in the strip being covered in oil, which took ages to clear up. The second run was a jet car which went off the end of the strip & into a ploughed field, again causing massive delays. And after all that waiting the third run resulted in a car taking out the timing equipment at the quarter mile and so that was it for the day

Never went again.

Broadly speaking what I'm doing is hitting various obscure search terms, and then scrolling thru/ough from the bottom up to see the less obvious results first, and then sticking up anything that catches my eye for later consideration. It's always interesting to see what solutions have been applied, and what's possible that never would otherwise cross my mind, like using a K series bevel box on an airhead...


* Or perhaps more probably four TZ350s?

Ba-boom Tish...

Chancellor Angela Merkel arrives at passport control in Poland:

"Nationality?" asks the immigration officer.

"German" she replies.

"Occupation?"

"No, just here for a few days."

Touring wit da Band...

One gig was in Belgium & as we were transported across town to the hotel the driver (a Walloonian dark fanboy) was rambling on about how all the goth nightclubs in London were spread all over the place whereas Berlin was a lot better as they were all concentrated in one part of town.

"Well," I said "They like concentrating things them Germans"







Sorry...

Hmmmm...

"I greet you in the name of Mammon and invite you to enter into this “holy time” with glad and generous hearts as together we celebrate the wedded immortality of Corporate Person with the mortal flesh of Angela Marie Vogel."

http://envisionseattle.org/2012/07/t...rie-vogel.html

"Her marriage license was revoked earlier today, reason given? The Corporate person was incorporated 18 months ago and you can't marry a 18 month old they said.

Which now begs the question, can corporations under 18 years old legally sign contracts? And are all contracts you may have signed with under 18 year old corporations legally valid?"

Apparently, in the castle he's got the sound of Brian Warner welling up out of the amphitheatre on one side...


http://www.photos-depot.com/photo-jpg-15422.htm

And the flagrant tonal violations of a Skatological Jazz Quartet wafting in from the other side...


Like this but worse.


I was brought up in a house full of Jazz, UK C&W (Donovan meets Denver), and Folk. To my mind that's a form of abuse. There was a record packing plant in town, and periodically they threw out skip loads of surplus covers, so in an attempt to keep the bad taste out I lined my walls with hundreds of copies of the gate-fold for this -



So in the end I loved it before I even heard it

One of the more arresting Zappa covers.

And a great album!
