Do NOT buy the Passport Video edition...it has horrible sound and the picture lighting throbs between dark and bright through the entire film. Passport Video also included a watermark of their logo in the bottom right hand corner of the screen that lasts throughout the film. In addition to all of this, what is advertised on the package as "Show 2: THE ED WOOD STORY" is in fact 40 mins. of cobbled together interviews with Vampira, Johnny Depp, Ed Wood's wife, and one of Tor Johnson's neighbors. Sounds okay, but they are actually mind-bogglingly uninsightful and focus mostly upon Tim Burton's Ed Wood film.
The edition of this DVD that you will want to buy is the Image Entertainment version that includes the 111 min. documentary "Flying Saucers Over Hollywood" (which is a wonderful addition). This DVD has great sound and picture quality, vastly superior to Passport Video's piddly excuse for a quality DVD.
I know that it may seem counter productive to buy a more expensive release of the worst movie of all time, but you will appreciate the horrible experience of grave robbers from outerspace much more (and Image Entertaiment's documentary is great too).
The list author says: "Now, you're probably wondering why I made a list of "nearly perfect" albums. You're thinking, "Nick, why not skip all this mediocrity and make a list of 'perfect' albums?!" Well, to be honest,NOTHING can ever be "perfect", especially when it comes to a entire album full of music. However, this list is meant to show the best of the best albums that I have yet heard. They are the CLOSEST thing to "perfect" as you can get and are classics in their own right. So if you're looking for some music that's going to blow your mind, then check this list out! It's some of the best stuff you're going to find as far as popular music goes(at least by my standards). Also, be sure to check out the comments I've made for each album on the list, and if you don't agree with something or simply want to comment, feel free! This is my first Listmania list."

Well, the open community can’t beat Facebook.
But companies using open technologies can – by building better products. Outside the echo chamber of web standards fanatics, the vast majority of web users don’t care about how the web works. They care about their user experience, where their friends are, and when something goes wrong, protecting their privacy.
When I read about Google Buzz (and other open-based products), it is repeatedly described as the open alternative to Facebook. Does this information help me (as a consumer) make a better decision about which product to use? No. That’s like telling the average cell phone buyer that the difference between the iPhone and Android is that the latter uses an open source operating system. When it comes to selling phones, Google relies on their search reputation and brand, not the openness of their platform.
Getting consumers to use your products, like any other retail interaction, requires offering something useful that is better than other alternatives. It is true that sometimes a backlash against one company leads consumers to switch to someone else, but they don’t “vote for the new guy”, they “vote out the old guy”. If users leave Facebook to use Google, it is not a victory for Google – it is a loss for Facebook.
When it comes to showing the value in open technology, very few efforts can show how being open makes products better. Even if OpenID solved all its problems, found a less offensive solution to the NASCAR problem, got providers certified and trusted, provided a legal framework for managing liability, educated consumers, and actually worked, it will still fail without the wealth of data offered by Facebook.
Why should publishers (content and service providers) choose a solution that doesn’t deliver actual consumer value?
In an attempt to address this, the OpenID community has been looking for ways to compete with Facebook. The OpenID/OAuth Hybrid proposal was one approach. Adding rich profile data was another (in the conceptual proposal for OpenID Connect). But these are all focused on enabling technologies, not products. Even if there was a complete open solution for every Facebook feature, it would still not offer a compelling value proposition because without actual data behind it, it is nothing but empty containers.
If Facebook asked me, I would recommend using open technologies because it is good for business (when available and applicable). But to everyone else I would recommend focusing more on the product and less about the openness of the platform. Open is certainly a selling point in the enterprise market, but it is not in the consumer market.
Two years ago the big fight was against the “walled-gardens” and user data, now it is about open standards. It didn’t make a difference back then (users didn’t care) and it won’t make one now. Facebook didn’t change their data policies because of what users wanted – they changed it because of what publishers demanded, and the publishers asked for data, in whatever shape or form Facebook wanted to give it.
The reason why the newly proposed OpenID Connect protocol is actually promising is that it focuses on mobility instead of federation. Instead of trying to build a fully distributed and federated identity framework, the proposal uses OAuth 2.0 to build vendor-specific identity solutions that are all implemented the same way. By allowing publishers to move from one compliant vendor to another, it lays the groundwork for future federation and distribution.
In other words, the fact that it doesn’t embrace discovery at its core, but starts with reliance on client registration and vendor specific relationship is an assets because it guarantees better products with built-in mobility. That mobility will allow publishers to take their business elsewhere if they don’t get the data and services they want.
Good technology enables better products. Being open is just the cherry-on-top.
Then of course, there is the other option: if you can’t beat them, join them.

365 Days #167 - Stanley Z. Daniels, M.D. - Sex For Teens (Where It's At) (mp3s)
By request... this one is for "snoopy" who wrote, "Ooooo! Do you have "Sex for Teens" by Stanley Daniels? please, please, please, please....."
With 4 mentions of the word please and having the cdr by my computer, the call had to be answered.
Never have owned the album or the ones in the series... yes series! I have only heard this one and hope to hear the others one day. The series featured "Sex Explained For Children," "Sex For Teens (Where It's At)," and "Sex For Adults (Is Fun - Particularly When You're In Love)".
I obtained a really nice quality copy of Sex For Teens on CDR from John K. Fitzpatick (proprietor of The Oddball Auditorium years back). I remember John mentioning he found it on Napster (or maybe Audiogalaxy or Newsgroups). It's a great quality copy of my all time favorite sex-ed record (the Christopher Recordings coming in at second place). So here it is... Sex For Teens!
Oh yea, some guy named Beck sampled it too. And a handful of other folks.

It sounds like Bill wants to fuck his sister and he's jealous of her boyfriend.

Speaking of requests, how about "Vertigo" by Jay Livingston & Ray Evans? It was recorded as a demo to help publicize Hitchcock's upcoming movie, but doesn't seem to be on the web anywhere. In this wondrous future day we live in, there must be somebody who could furnish an mp3 for us culture lovers.

I have the "Sex For Adults" LP (the cover is currently displayed prominently on my bedroom wall) and I've always wondered what the Kids and Teens versions might sound like, since the Adults LP is closer to pornography than anything educational. It starts out with a couple visiting a doctor to discuss their sex problems, but as the record progresses the doctor goes into ever greater graphic (yet oddly poetic) description of what loving adults can do to pleasure each other. I'm looking forward to checking out just how dirty these teens get ...
Ha! I might have known this (sex for teens) would turn up here. I've been using it and Sex Explained For Children (which is fantastic, by the way) for over 20 years on the radio and anywhere I can. This year's 365 Days seems to be rounding up a lot of the better sex-ed records. Nice to have them all in one place for people.
i downloaded this 3 days ago and yesterday i was listening to the cloudead album(anticon label) and heard a sample from this vinyl on pt 4. side A. what a coincidence heh. i guess a lot of people have sampled this
This record is sampled by the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.
On a single off the "Now I Got Worry" album I think. Ad Rock scratches this record above a song with them called "COOL VEE".
WAHHHAAAT A LOOSER!
If there was ever a record begging to get sampled...

I sometimes wonder where the special=FX laden crew splashed down with blah blah blah we're all hungry

"It sounds like Bill wants to fuck his sister and he's jealous of her boyfriend."

(Where in "Where It's At" did he sample?)
Here are the parts used in the song.
"What about those who swing both ways? AC/DCs?"
"We're all part of the total scene"
"That's beautiful, Dad."
