More about the Schutte release:
Thorsten Schütte’s film is a sharply edited and energetic celebration of Zappa through his public persona, allowing us to witness his shifting relationship with audiences. Utilizing potent TV interviews and many forgotten performances from his 30-year career, we are immersed into the musician’s world while experiencing two distinct facets of his complex character. At once Zappa was both a charismatic composer who reveled in the joy of performing and, in the next moment, a fiercely intelligent and brutally honest interviewee whose convictions only got stronger as his career ascended.
Zappa was uncompromising as he led the charge against music censorship in the ’90s and even went on to embrace the role of quasi-cultural ambassador in the Czech Republic. His music and ideas are vital, and they cut across generations, while his goal of freeing the listener from conformity still resonates today.

well over 500 k, plan to donate something towards the end of the campaign, I find the forum to have gone very quite lately, all the big gun mouths that usually have a lot of air coming from their mouths have remained very silent on this one, wonder why?

Great interview guys! Towards the end Alex said he's going to be "wrapping his head around this stuff" for the next four years. That's understandable and not unexpected but that puts the release date at 2020 at the earliest. I just think folks should be aware of that.

And even that will be dependant on even more funds being pledged.

(UPDATE: Alex's latest post clarifies just where we now stand and where he wants us to take it: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/al ... ts/1528441)

He would and did censor (change the words to) songs when he was performing on television. He also knew what was allowed on commercial television during his many interviews and complied. He could still get his point across though.

^^ Really? You don't get my point? I knew when I posted I might get this response. Wish it wasn't you, though.

If you have to censor the word FUCK don't even use it. Come up with a new title. We all know F%@# means FUCK anyway. Who are we protecting? The children are too busy crossing busy streets while staring at their cellphones to notice. If the mainstream distributor or corporate imperialists you are in business with wont let you print FUCK the way it's meant to be printed, then fuck it. New title.
