I always understood that as the dreaming part is fine, it's what or how one acts on it that can become a problem:D

rsvd=reserved=cool

where 'cool' = emotionally reserved, that's my guess anyway

Could be... He looks cool. I like his goatee. :bald: I'm still wondering what's the use of a "bald" smiley, but he looks funny.

:cool: That one is actually called "cool".

Zappa is among us... I feel it...

Hit the stores on FZ's 15th anniversity of rebirth into eternity, and did not just found a copy of Shampoohorn, I also found that the horrific Barry Miles's Zappa bio (in the even more horrific Dutch translation) has hit the market of over-produced literature and can now be bought for a minimal amount of money at De Slegte.

He will be back in stores on July 31st,according to Whats New on Zapp.com.FZ's music that is!
The RSVD I'd say is for reserved.Then there's RSVP which is a French phrase for Respondez s'il vous plait,or please respond.
But you knew that already. D'oh!

What was Frank Zappa like in person?
I was a student at Berklee Music School in Boston in 1973. Frank and the beginnings of the Roxy band had played a concert the night before. Someone knew which hotel the band was staying.

As a Zappa fanatic since 1968, I, with my roommate, set out to the hotel determined to meet Frank. As soon as we arrived and checked out the lobby and bar, we spoke to Tom Fowler, Chester Thompson and Ruth Underwood.

Ruth was very sweet and told us that Frank loved Boston and had left earlier to walk around the city. She said that we might be waiting for a long time before Frank might return. At that point my roomie decided to head back to the dorm but I was determined to meet the man and staked out a chair in the lobby facing the front door. Various members of the band would walk by and say “you're still waiting?”. They seemed amused by my determination. When I told Tom Fowler I was a student at Berklee, he laughed and said “oh you're a musician, I thought you were a groupie!”

Anyway, it was nearing 10 pm, and I had been there since noon, when in comes Frank. Dressed in a long coat and hat pulled down over his eyes, he stared at the floor and went quickly to the elevator. I froze for a moment and as the elevator door opened and he took a step toward it, I yelled Frank and ran up to him.

The elevator door closed as Frank looked at me and asked “yes?” There was no one else nearby as I started spewing my admiration interspersed with questions. I remember pointing out the window to the Movie Theater across the street and telling Frank that I went every week to see 200 Motels. He seemed amused by my enthused babbling and repeatedly shook my hand and said Thanks. Finally, Frank said I gotta go and got on the elevator.

What impressed me about that brief but memorable meeting was that although no one was near us, Frank remained tolerant, respectful and appreciative of this fan's excitement. He could have devastated me with an unkind word or by blowing me off and getting right on the elevator. But he suffered this fool gladly, at least for about 10 minutes. I left thinking it was “our secret" that despite his reputation, Frank was a nice guy who valued his fans. I ran back to the dorm to tell my roommate what he missed."
