I could do without those Dangerous Minds posts that are like "this ice sculpture of Frank Zappa and vintage 1970s macrame owl are also working bongs!," but they sure were right about how good this 30-minute 1980 performance by Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band on French television is.

Watch the whole thing, but don't miss a few of my personal favorite moments:

1. Best 'lead singer appreciating guitar solo' move of all time at 2:20.

2. Delivery of key line "I may be hungry but I sure ain't weird" with Tuvan overtones at 15:40.
