That's hysterical.  I honestly haven't thought about Zoogs Rift in a long time.  I bought one of his LP's way back in the mid-late 80's, callled "Island of Living Puke".  With a title like that, how could I resist?  That was around the time when I bought a couple of Jandek albums. I'll have to dust it off!  I think anyone who appreciates Jandek would probably like that one too!
Another one I bought around that time because of the title  was "Drugs Are Nice" by Suckdog.

Is it known for sure that the sofa, etc. are props for the play being put on at the Firehouse right now? I swear that only Jandek himself would have a couch like ... that. It also seems like the kind of tableau in which he'd record. Is it possible that that stuff was the product of his own staging?

That leads one towards thoughts of what Jandek's house is like.  Judging from the album covers it's funny to think it is totally barren save for odd 70s furniture and either avocado green or that funny burnt orange kitchen appliances.  Maybe that drumset from one of the covers in the corner.  Shades drawn tight all day.  AM radio emanating from a crackly old transistor radio on a peeling formica kitchen counter.  Some huge old television that has to be banged on to make the picture look right.  Everything is spotless.  No decorations or pictures on the walls. 
I just KNOW he records in a basement.  A dank dark smelly basement.  It sounds like he is in a basement with maybe a bare bulb on a wire hanging down.

Wow, a fellow AFFZer. I'm not sure whether I remember you, nor could I say if you remember me, but perhaps there's a chance either of our memories could be jogged. Zoogz really doesn't post there anymore and, you know, stays away from the computer in general due to his health / eyesight / etc. I have fond memories of chatting with him on AOL in 2000 - 2001 (and sometimes chatting with him on MSN with a couple of other dastardly AFFZers, Batpuller and Erik "Fantomas" Ozborn) and have been known to still occasionally brag that my name appears on the "special thanks" list of his "Born in the Wrong Universe" cd! I think I have all of his SST albums and a couple other assorted items ("Five Billion Pinheads", an original Snout "Interim Resurgence" lp...)

I know he's not the most popular attraction taking place this year, yet I think it's still an error on part of NPR to not acknowledge his participation.  This is a big venue for Jandek, and Jandek is key to the outsider musician genre.
