"Music has become worthless now, for the first time ever." Josh Alan Friedman on Stark Truth Radio
Though I am inclined to believe everything Mr. Friedman says, I most certainly agree with him on the above assessment, and do so from a place of personal experience.
Further, you don't have to be the Idiot Bastard to know that it's not love, but merch that will tear us apart, again. Feuding heirs and what not.
While it may be the Jooklo-Zappa sonic experience will quickly and violently pass through you like a 1 Euro Berlin falafel, posters, tee shirts, tour books, cassettes and CD's can stay with you forever like a fancy stomach parasite from some exotic locale.
Here are some examples of the offerings on the 2017 Jooklo Zappa Loves You European Freakabastia Tour:
Above are ten of eighty eight (88) original tour posters. And by original I mean that each one is unique, hand made by I-man, with nothing but love in my heart and a lot of gratitude for the magic of WILD GEARS! Love you guys!
(As for the photos, if you are wondering about the horrendous exposure, that was by choice. Stop shouting)
In addition, there are fifty (50) of these as well:
These also are all original, all hand made, no two alike, no two the same size, all look better in real day light than what ever the fuck exposure the camera thought best, all printed on thick paper, all suitable for framing, all will keep your table top clear of those pesky drink rings when used as a coaster or table mat.
Mind you, while the proceeds from these posters should go to pay for dog food, people food, heating bills, auto insurance and taxes (in that order) my personal private personal strategy (as 1/4 of the Jooklo Zappa trio) is to allocate those funds to the realization of some high-art uber-collectable JOOKLO-ZAPPA 12" vinyl.
I'm looking at you URDLA...
Does that turn anyone's crank? While I suppose I could go on KickStarter or GoFuckFundMe, I still like to pretend I can get things done by the sweat of my own brow(n). Not like that has ever been the case, but hey, if you don't have a dream, how do you expect a dream to come true? Because really now, it can't be that only nightmares come true, right? Please? Someone? Hello?
Not shown are the Tour Books or the cassettes. That is for the simple reason that they are not yet done. No matter, I have 7 days before I leave. All the time in the world, right?
