Scramblin' Jack Costello

I started this blog 7 years ago, seems like yesterday, seems like a million light years from home, dedicated to the late great kitchen table drinking boozehound, Scramblin' Jack Costello, the inspiration for the Grill Rats character "Tom".




Graves doesn't get the Zappa thing, and I'm a bit surprised as Frank did his share of shredding. For some people the Zappa thing is about the politics, for some it's the silly bathroom humor lyrics, for others it's the odd time signatures and squealing saxophones. For me, it's all about the gumbo.

Thanks, Sandy, and don't get too lost down the Youtube Scramblin' Jack Rabbit Hole. Leave a trail of Goobers and Raisinets, chocolate covered treats, so you can find your way back.

Randal, I'll resist the urge to tell you that you just haven't listened to the right Zappa album yet, as I believe that urge was covered by The Onion back '05? '06?
