Deep Cuts

Deep Cuts: Moby Frank

I’ve mentioned previously my quest for the white whale that is the complete Frank Zappa CD discography.  It is a mighty beast, and I’m starting to lose track and buy duplicates that I’m too lazy to return for a refund.    I don’t have the short-term memory for this any more.

And so in the interest of being able to access my “have” list wherever I am, I’m dedicating a little space to my meager Zappa collection.  I know this list isn’t particularly entertaining for you but you know what?  Sometimes it’s about me.  Don’t feel bad — I still think you’re pretty.
