  •   raouldukeofprunes I'm not buying that story. That family is stupidly wealthy, or at least they should be. It's been over a decade since the acknowledgement that they had that footage. 3mon
  •   vinylsaurous @displacedbedouin I don't know much about the details but I imagine FZ was able to set up his family so they're comfortable but not wealthy enough to pour a few hundred grand maybe more into finishing a project that may not make the money back. In the end it's a big process to produce something like a movie and the audience who would pay for the pleasure of seeing that gig is increasingly shrinking. In short I can see the conundrum and if I was in their same position is probably hold off to find external financing too 3mon
  •   raouldukeofprunes I don't disagree, really. You're right about it not making back the money. I just truly believe that it's in the can and ready to rock. It's not like they need to do a theatrical edit or release. But there's definitely more to it. That whole "Roxy by Proxy" thing was really strange. So who knows. 3mon
  •   raouldukeofprunes Also, this is my absolute favorite FZ release and has special significance to me and memories of my Dad. I know this record note for note, inside and out. I even have a transcription somewhere of "Don't You Ever Wash That Thing" I did for my drumline in high school. 3mon
  •   vinylsaurous @displacedbedouin nice yes it's one of my favourite too, certainly in the top 3 of FZ works. I suspect there is a copy ready to go but it's a low def version. I respect the family wants to make a definitive high quality version which will likely require some investment. Agreed the Roxy by Proxy thing was odd, hopefully some millionaire FZ fan will step in and just make it happen (hello Matt Groening!) 3mon
  •   raouldukeofprunes Haha. Right!? Why not just crowdfund the damn thing!? 3mon
