I think he's sneering a little at the listener behind his silent curtain. Just my opinion, but it would fit Franks sense of the absurd and his humor too.

Total Conceptual Continuity. :wink: 8)

I guess one could say Zappa often used to write based on the unnamed technique of Meta-Music, which is music about music and about assorted kinds of music into a singular mosaic never achieved before or since...

Does the Doors' "The End" in "Tiny Sick Tears" qualify?

Nice of the ZFT to copyright "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White" as a Frank Zappa composition on Chicago '78 (as "FZ and Pig").

In "Greggery Peccary", at the 10:55 mark (the car full of slowly aging, very hip young people), the opening bass line from "Chameleon" by Herbie Hancock is played.

I'm curious if that was George Duke's idea.

^^It must have been from the Great Architect's mind... It has his particular mark of disassembling and re-assembling other people's music.

And now, a classic, commonly known as the Circus Theme Music (ex. "garishly-painted buses").

...an obvious one La Habanera from Bizet's Carmen in the Big Swifty extravaganza from MAJNH:

A cool idea for another Zappa book would be a thorough essay on every extraneous musical content threw into Zappa's recorded universe, their context, source, etc.

This is suitable for a Zappa audience, I guess...

The bass vamp in "The Madison Panty-Sniffing Festival" (from 0:27 to the end) is "Killer Joe" by Benny Golson. One of the guitarists (Vai?) plays the opening phrase of the melody a few times starting at 0:41.


Bizarre moment Christian politician sniffs a pair of women’s panties during online council meeting in Brazil

THIS is the bizarre moment a Brazilian politician sniffs a pair of women's underwear during an online council meeting.


Ditinho do Asilo, who is a member of a Christian party, pulled out the knickers that were sent to him in the post during the call where he thought the camera was off.

Image

The bizarre incident occurred during an online meeting of the Braganca Paulista Town Council, a town in the southeastern Brazilian state of Sao Paulo.

The meeting was set up for the politicians to discuss chopping down trees in the area.

In the video, the politicians can be seen discussing the issue when council member Ditinho do Asilo of the Social Christian Party pulls out a pair of small red knickers.

He studies the knickers in depth before lifting the thong up to his nose and taking a sniff.

The politician has tried to explain his bizarre behaviour, saying he had received a present in the mail during the session and had deactivated his microphone when he collected it.

He said he was then checking to see what he had been given, thinking that his video had also been deactivated along with his microphone.

Another council member tried to alert him, and only then did he realise his camera was still on.

Asilo added: “It was a misfortune of my lack of practice with this technology. I wore a pink shirt and, as a joke, a friend sent me these knickers.

"It was an edible item from one of those sex shops. That’s why I sniffed it. I have a family.

“It was just a joke that, because of my naivety, became public.”
