This whole monstruousity was originally conveived February through March 2001 by the members of The Big Note - a Frank Zappa YahooGroup. After an arduous gestation period, this site was birthed on April 11 2001. True to the essence of collaborative effort, these people are held responsible.

I'm not sure what you mean by "elaborate". Did he explain it elsewhere? Yeah; numerous times, mostly in print interviews. I can't tell you which ones, but there are many references to xenochrony elsewhere. His most elaborate use of it was the Joe's Garage album. According to FZ, every solo on the JG set was xenochronous, with the exception of "Watermelon in Easter Hay".
Guys, I put a lot of hard-earned energy into contributing to the Polls, but I struggle to discover what the answer actually is. I see the results about who voted for what, but I'm expectant of a big bold headline saying "and the answer is....", yet I haven't found it recently. Is it some Brit thing or am I missing a link into some dark dungeon of despair... Yours Truly - toughened by the spirit in the sky,
The correct answer is always the one that was chosen by SOFA, since he's the one who posed the question.
Poodle is quite right, Swiftus. I always cast my vote right before closing the poll... Unless someone else posts the question, which has happened twice, I believe. But I also post who won, and what the correct answer is. Here are the Subject lines of the last 4; if you look these up, you will find the correct answer, as well as the source for the question:
Who is Norman Greenbaum?
(*That's "Native American" for those outside the US, and the politically correct inside the US)
Topic??? We don't need no stinking topic!
I'm more than grateful for all your help, remember our brains are smaller here, but the capacity for learning is still in there... Norman has a lot to answer for remember that!
Speaking of which, may I be excused? My brain is full.
Not until you're finished thinking, Mister!!! I'm sure there are lots of empty-brained kids in China who would love to think what you're thinking...
Someone just sent me a peculiar article that appeared in the Dutch rock-mag "Hitweek", date of appearance unknown - probably late 60ies. It starts like this: "Aside from being the leader of the MOI, Frank Zappa is also the president of an advertising agency, The Nifty Advertising Agency. For those who've always thought that this agency, as well as its presidency, was fake, the American paper Saturday Evening Post published a very funny article by a Mr. W.H. Manville, in which an eyewitness account is given of a scene in the expensively furnished presidential office of Unicord Inc. - a billion dollar company in the musical instruments and amplifier business for which FZ is advisor."
I know FZ & Herb were twiddling around with an idea for a company called "Nifty, Tuff & Bitchin", but I didn't know it ever got off the ground. And I was under the impression that it was a marketing agency, rather than an ad agency...
This past Friday I got home from work and find a burned copy of the Ed Palermo Big Band promo CD waiting in my mailbox. I had plans to go to a dinner/dance with my wife at her church that night, and barely had a chance to listen to it before it was time to go. I decided to take it with me and I'm glad I did.
Whenever I'm reading a book or listening to a song that contains cursing, I have subconsciously trained my own brain to stop flickering on and off momentarily, and to quietly ask itself whether or not (in its opinion) the curse words were necessary to more effectively communicate the precise message that the writer or singer was trying to convey. If the curse words were necessary, I continue on. If the curse words weren't necessary, I continue on.
