Why “Tarzappa”?

I learned from my tree service business that people will remember a handle or unique name much more readily than a common name. Hence, Man Mountain Tree Work. I have had two heroes in my life. When I saw my first Tarzan movie, my life changed forever and my dream of living in the jungle was born. As a teenager, having a troubled home life and a distinct distain for the establishment, I gravitated towards Frank Zappa. I heard Zappa's music for the first time at the age of 13 in 1967--Zappa’s first album, Freak Out. My father told me he didn’t want me playing Zappa in the house so I moved out at the age of 15. I have been a hardcore fan ever since and have listened to Zappa’s music daily for 42 years. Listening to Zappa’s music empowers me and is like a form of alchemy for my soul. I deeply admire Frank’s music and guitar playing and consider myself a freedom fighter like Zappa was. We are both Sagittarians. (I met Dweezil Zappa last night, January 13, 2010, and gave him my card. I asked him to come see me in Costa Rica, and he said he would check it out.)
