Giving my monster project a little more advertising:
Over the past few weeks I translated a large number of Zappa-related news articles. It brought several new insights, reviews, concert reviews, little known interviews and quotes...
For your entertainment:
Zappa in Provinciale Zeeuwse Courant

Zappa in Leeuwardense Courant/Nieuwsblad van het Noorden

Please enjoy this mammoth task!!

Zeeuwse Courant is provincial to the south west province of the Netherlands,Zeeland.
Leeuwardense Courant is local to Leeuwarden, capital of northern province Friesland.
Nieuwsblad Van Het Noorden deals with the entire northern section but primarily with Groningen.

Would like to give my recent mammoth task a bit more exposure:

http://packardgoose.ploeg.ws/interactiv ... hp?tid=639

This is a huge stack of translations of the recently published archives of Dutch quality newspapers, like Volkskrant, Trouw and NRC.

I'm not fully there yet, but I'm in December 1993 at the gloomy task of translating Zappa's best reviews.

Well done BBP

translating the obituaries is going to suck.

I was given a massive 5000+ collection of newspaper/magazine cuttings by a German Frank fan, hundreds are obituaries, which I've been slow to scrapbook because it's just too depressing, I do a few pages most Zappadans.

An obliging Viva employee sent my dad some PDF-files of a 1977 issue with a FZ interview.
Translated it just for you!
