Today's lesson: never buy a Frank Zappa album before hearing it. It 
might be amazing good music (e.g. Apostrophe) or, if you buy Lumpy 
Gravy, you get an album with barely no music but full of dialogues such as:

SPIDER: I think I can explain about . . . about how the pigs' music works
MONICA: Well, this should be interesting
SPIDER: Remember that they make music with a very dense light, and remember about the smoke standing still and how they . . . they really get uptight when you try to move the smoke, right?
JOHN: Yeah?
SPIDER: I think the music in that dense light is probably what makes the smoke stand still. Any sort of motion has its effect on . . . on the ponies' manes. You know, the thing on their neck
JOHN: Hmm . . .
SPIDER: As soon as the pony's mane starts to get good in the back any sort of mo . . . motion, especially of smoke or gas, begins to make the end split.
JOHN: That's the basis of all their nationalism. Like if they can't salute the smoke every morning when they get up . . .
SPIDER: Yeah, it's a vicious circle. You got it.
