    Indeed.

    I like this UK band. They have an album called "Your Queen Is A Reptile", about how their ruler is a fucking abomination. Instead they proclaim some heroic women as their queens.

    I had some [deleted] on a [deleted]tube playing in slow motion. .25.
    I had forgotten it, it was on another tab... Was quiet, so I did not hear it... It was [Never Mind], NSFW. WITH some music that became louder and faster over time......
    I forgot it was playing, on the other tab, and I clicked the one you sent...
    I listened and I thought, Holy Shit, that is weird stuff!!! I will have to listen to it five times before I 'grow into it!!'
    I thought, Why Can't I catch The Tune, Can't figure out The Beat! WEIRD!!!!???
    After about 1 hour of it, I thought, IS THERE ANOTHER BROWSER TAB PLAYING SOME MUSIC????

    aha!!!!
    THAT WAS WHAT WAS HAPPENING!!!! so, i CLOSED ALL THE TABS AND RESTARTED.
    It was just as weird!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wait!

    Zappa was great

    I have this firefox addon that blocks ads, it's called "ublock origin".
    And another called "youtube ad auto-skipper".
    Both do a great job.

    I do not trust ad blockers to work or to work for very long. On ANY browser. BUT I am willing to try, IF I AM BORED.
    I am bored right now.

    I have chrome
    I searched for extension called unlock origin it is there in Chrome extensions. I found it.
    I searched for extension called youtube ad auto-skipper. I could not find it.
    I then thought, well I will try the one I found.

    I then started Youtube and I do not see any ads in a Youtube video!!
    I doubt it will be effective for very long, they never are.. HAHA.
    Still, that one seems to work, for now. I do not think it will be effective for long. I like it. And when it stops working, like The Next point release of Chromium... I won't care much.
    I hate Ads On YouTube and I like watching the YouTube and its continuous war against ad blockers. Hehehe.

    THANKS

    Many people I know AUTOhate Zappa.
    I am pleased when ANYONE I know Gives Zappa Music a try.
    He was a genious... I think he was the Music Genius equivalent of Wolfie Mozart.
    I think he knew it too, hehe.
    SO goofy and he didn't care a bit.
    I think Mozart was goofy too and HE didn't care HAHAHA.

    You're welcome!

    I'm hoping to see the day video hosting will be a public service, like public libraries. Or a world community resource.
    When the google servers will have dust on them, the fucking bastards, and we'll remember it like we do cassette players.
