Many frgeekcredits for that one!

Someday I'll be brave enough to post my high school yearbook picture :-)

Someday I'll get around to posting my credit as a sound guy for an Ossman show.

Someday I'll remember not to get my hispanic boss started on C&C (he does have an amazing memory).

Saw Zappa a gazillion times, including one show where he did Reuben and the Jets as a warmup band and then a full Mother's concert, and the Waka Jawaka concert at the Hollywood Bowl. Really gave me quite the attitude looking down upon '70s music. (My sister and cousin sang in our high school chorus with Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan. The Volmans lived around the corner from us when I was little.).

To your list I'd say ditto, and add Congress of Wonders (sf bay area group) and Credibility Gap (see wikipedia). Oh, can't forget National Lampoon.

This must have something to do with Oracle... perhaps in that it takes a certain set of intelligence and personality traits to deal with it.
