My company is based out of Sweden and we get all the Social democratic perks, so yes they give a great severance package and even have a company that helps you find another job.

Went to the flea market at the ice skate rink. It's 31 deg C here (87,8 F) and bloody hot - especially since our heat is also humid - so hardly weather to ice skate.

Normally the skating rink charges high entry costs and has next to nothing - I didn't get there anything in the last 3 visits, but I decided to go anyway -
and broke my budget. Had to get extra cash for the Fort Boyard board game after I bought 4 magazines. A couple of times I had scored bargains at second-hand shops to make Slime.oofy.tvvset happy - but these were not cheap.

In one pile I found a Muziek-Expres from December 1971, and one from April 1980, both with article about FZ - the shopkeep helped searching and found a Veronica magazine from November 1971 with the maestro on the front - and in a Hitweek pile I found the 21 Oct 1966 Hitweek - the first magazine with FZ on the cover.

Altogether they cost €35, the shopkeep let me have them for €32 - and when I found the French-languaged Fort Boyard game I snipped it up.

For ease of finding stuff back, I put all the interviews we have on the forum in General in a new topic within General called Interviews and Articles: http://packardgoose.ploeg.ws/interactive/forums/Files/forumdisplay....

Which will now get some new additions!

I wonder what he'd say if he knew that people would now gladly pay 20 dollars for a magazine what contains a bit about him, created by one of those dreaded rock journalists :D

The article I just translated of Veronica Magazine from 1971 was created by someone who didn't know what he was doing and had just smoked something or other.

Had a little meet-up with two ex-colleagues and a colleague at a café, was good fun gossipping.

Hey Caputh, good to hear from you.

I'm really mad about those bastards at the ZFT who just completely cancelled a community like that, with no replacement. I don't care what some people say about the old zappa.com forum, it was mostly harmless and whichever person or persons that decided to wipeout that forum are obviously sociopaths with no understanding of community.

@polydigm - Completely agree with you . It is much missed here at the tinkamok estate as well .
I don't think it will ever be seen again and that is a shame .
I emailed them about it a while age , but preditably received no response .

@tinkamok: It’s almost a year since they said “see you soon”. They obviously don’t care.

Whoa, has it been a year? I think Zappa.com is still the first hit in my address bar when I type F.
