Today (December 21) would’ve been Frank Zappa’s 78th birthday.  Combined as a solo artist and with The Mothers Of Invention, Zappa released over 60 albums in nearly three decades.

Out of that entire catalog, however, there’s perhaps no greater lesson we all learned than this: “Watch out where the huskies go, and don’t you eat that yellow snow.”

Happy birthday, Frank!  Our world is far less weird and interesting without you, but we eagerly await your return in hologram-form next year.
