Quote & Music of the day -- 10/20/04

"Every great advance in natural knowledge has involved the absolute rejection of authority." -- Thomas H. Huxley

Frank Zappa's Over-Nite Sensation
A classic amongst the 60+ albums that Zappa released during his brilliant lifetime. The song "I'm the Slime" can be found on this album, a song that critcizes television content and refers to the slime box as being a propagandizing tool of both government and industry. The music kicks ass too; you'll be hard pressed to find a rock album with such crisp and complex instrumentation. The work of drummer Ralph Humphries is simply impeccable throughout and forced me to take notice of this album and seek out more Zappa material. Yes, this was the album that turned me on to the wonderful world of Frank Zappa.
