  •  What dope? (8+ / 0-)

    I really hate extending this O/T thread, but this is just ignorant and I can't ignore it.

    He had a VERY BAD attitude about DOPE.  Even Pot, which I approve of, so I disagreed with him about it....

    Some interviewer asked what he "Freaked out" on, he replied "Peanut Butter and Cigarettes..."

    I won't post the vids, but go look for Zappa's song "Cocaine Decisions" or read the words to "Dancin' Fool"...."Just what DO you do with a $50 booger?"

      My pot-smokin' former college roomies LOVED Zappa and his "zircon-encrusted tweezers," so I naturally assumed he smoked too. Who knew? (well, you maybe, but otherwise...).

      •  Most of his musicians... (7+ / 0-)

        ...and to be clear he treated even the most talented as staff...were standard-issue dopers. He appreciated their musical skills but was fairly contemptuous of their personal habits.

        It is difficult indeed to classify him; he was an independent thinker who disliked being pinned down that way. Some of his views were extremely forward-looking while others were a good deal less so. One thing is clear: he had an intense dislike for forced conformity of any kind and this is very clearly reflected in his contempt for religion in general and for fundamentalism most especially.

          •  I can't believe you all got this far (0+ / 0-)

            in your conversation without Fred swooping in with the "hijacking" my diary lecture.  I gues some types of off topic comments are more trollish than others.
