I had canceled my amazon order of the book awhile back when the release date was pushed back but I happened upon it at Barnes & Noble yesterday and bought it off the shelf so I’ve been into that over the past 24 hours.

One of the Utopia reunion shows was reportedly filmed from last year. Hopefully, that will be released soon on blu-ray/dvd especially since I had to cancel going to my VIP show. To top that off all the VIP swag that Plook brought back for me got destroyed in the fire. Jesus fuck!

Just finished the book. Good read with some revealing and surprising stuff. In some ways it’s kind of like the Real Frank Zappa Book in that it’s not a proper autobiography where we get a chronological play by play of his life but he touches on many random episodes in his life and his thoughts and philosophies related to those topics up until his 50th Birthday. Each “chapter” is one page long containing three paragraphs. He doesn’t get too in depth about his music. He might actually talk more about his involvement with computers. Appreciate it for what it is, not what it isn’t.

I would say living with wife #2 and wife #3 at the same time.

I got that CD in either the late 90's or Early 2000's and you could put it in your computer and it had all sorts of additional stuff on it, Todd was always in front of the Technology curve... :idea:

No World Order(1994) is like that, also.

Yeah, he did the Ringo ASB thing between his own tours for quite a few years.

Glaysys has a Kickstarter campaign. I'll prolly just get the cd/tshirt or such... but wow, wouldn't it be cool to have him cover a song of your choice!
