My backer box showed up in the mail yesterday!
And it was a large box, like 12"x20"x24".
There were a lot of surprises.
Yes, the t-shirt,
yes the poncho,
some stickers and buttons.
Also, a tote bag.
But there's a Frank Zappa 200 Motels keychain which made me laugh.
And a chunk of UMRK cable.
They threw in sealed copies of
The Yellow Shark on cassette,
Imaginary Diseases on cd and,
The Torture Never Stops on dvd (NTSC).
There's a 'zappa' patch,
an 'F-Zappa' license plate from 'the show me state' made out of metal and encased in shrink wrap while still being suitable for mounting on your car, or your headboard or, whatever,
and a Honker Home Video unsharpened pencil made out of actual wood with the 818-Pumpkin phone number and the Hollywood POBox # on it.

There's also a 'Mystery bag' manila envelope that has a number of individual facsimile items.
Several vintage photo post cards,
many sticker type things including (but not limited to) a concertgebouw concert ticket, backstage passes, a 10-1-74 Basel foldout concert poster, and a couple art pieces that were clearly originally made by FZ.
And several setlists backed by a sheet listing expenses (incl insurance, bmi/ascap, lighting, "poster boys", and food), for 'outside salt palace'. Funny.


Mine arrived today. And since I bought the $150 backer level (you obviously bought the next level up from mine), most of the items I received are the same as the above. Only, I didn't receive the poncho or a piece of UMRK cable and they included a Joe's Menage CD (not Imaginary Diseases) and an original Barking Pumpkin Studio Tan cassette (not The Yellow Shark)...

Very cool indeed! :twisted:

Just curious. What do you do for work? You can be as vague as you like.

I got mine. I haven't really looked at it all. There's a Buffalo cd, Freak Out cassette, TTNS dvd, an Old Masters large booklet, and what I believe is a Z-pack. Not sure as I never got one back in the day. And all the other knick knack stuff.

Overall, I'm glad I participated. As evidenced by Chicago 78, there's still great stuff to be mined from the vaults, not to mention what video exists.

All in all, definitely $100 worth of merch type stuff - if that was all I was looking forward to.

And the documentary (and more) is yet to come.

So, this is some physical-evidence type indication that the Alex Winter doc people are trying to make the entire enterprise worth everybody's while. :mrgreen:


My box was pretty similar and came last Saturday. I just got the poster in a tube today.

The vault digitization is why I kicked in and I look forward to the promised digital access. I do look forward to the book. The movie - well I paid enough to be in the credits- yes I am an idiot, but its all for the love of Frank.

Still waiting because apparently there's a hold up with the song book add ons.

Yes.

It's like that in the original box set release, too.

Seriously, since this must have been from a stash of leftover extra booklets, I wondered if perhaps it hadn't been defaced.

Once I was talking to 818-PUMPKIN, and I must have called to inquire about the release date for the second Old Masters box. I hope it wasn't Gail I was talking to, because like a jerk, I made a snarky remark about did they have to black out anyone's face. There was a moment of offended silence, and then the reply: "That was art."

Gotta admit that was a great fucking reply. I hope it was Gail.

Bet it was, with a B.S. response like "It was art". No, that was being an ass and trying to get the last word about a talented musician.....

My guess is if it was Pamela Zurubica's face blacked out that might indicate a continuation of the bad feelings I have read existed between Gail and her going way back. Saying that was art to black her out? Not sure I buy into that. I may be wrong though but that's what comes to mind.

Art is a form of expression, maybe she was expressing animosity... :idea:

I believe the artsy term is "negative space" I learned that Crayola school when I was drawing nudie pictures and the teacher said "that's okay, he can draw what ever he likes...and I can do this" and is scribbled out the naughty bits with "teacher black" permanence. But what the teacher didn't know, and no one knew outside of our four facing group of desks was that turning the page over revealed my original art obsession and would be become my patented technique to this day...I just got a big deal for crackerjack prizes, finally I made it! and I'm only in 14th grade.

As an artist I can't argue with that but as an artist and having been around them art can be a excuse for a lot of things. Was it animosity? I sure wouldn't know for sure but I had to wonder when I read the post Pamela was named in as being blacked out. :wink:
