Atomic Dogs

The Kansas School System has come up with a clever way to explain atoms using golden retrievers.

I was hoping this was going to be George Clinton related.

I sort of worried about that. Incidentally, I recently found a strange item I thought might be of interest. It was a very cheap western scored by a very young Frank Zappa.

I saw another movie he did some music for when he was a young man called The World's Greatest Sinner. It's a pretty amazing movie, but I couldn't hear his song of that title in the movie at all. It's still worth watching though.

I am aware of the film, but I have never seen it. Speaking of young Zappa, here he is at age 21 on the Steve Allen show demonstrating (eventually) how to play a bicycle:

That's an entertaining video, but I have concerns that the youth of Kansas are likely, when confronted by an exam, extrapolate the answers to questions they do not know about atoms from what they do know about dogs.

I think Zappa was always a little hard on that movie. Granted it looks like it was made for about ten bucks; but it's also governed by a logic all its own. It's one of those movies that makes sense according to its own rules, while still being completely nutzoid. For instance- the main character is an insurance agent who becomes the biggest rock star in the world by declaring himself God and playing music that consists of atonal screaming.
