Hi Manning,

Some years ago, a few people here attempted to fix this problem you are mentionning about the tracks by album and/or version.

However this Titan work did not go very far mainly due to the lack of contributors.

And this sucks because I think we finally met a consensus by updating the tracks on the Freak Out! album.

Hungry Freaks, Daddy is likely a good example of what should be done.

Naturally if anybody wanted to take the lead and unburry this 'born-dead project', I would be very pleased to participate from time to time.

But I doubt that anyone else would help us on this.

Hi Manning,

I noticed the small paragraph you added to the Video From Hell article is actually a copy/paste from the Wikipedia article.

This article was published under conditions of the Creative Commons license which mentions the original article can be copied, however we "must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor". So this is nearly the same as quoting and sourcing a paragraph.

Well, in the current case, I guess that it would have been better to rewrite the paragraph with your own words.

Thanks for your understanding

The article WAS a paraphrase, and was rewritten to my own needs. Your assumption that the entire thing was a copy and paste is offensive. Perhaps you could learn to ask questions before snooting off like some a**hole.

What an arrogant way to introduce yourself to a newcomer. No wonder no one helps out here.

Whatever I do not clearly understand what is so offensive in an anwser dealing with facts (differences in bold):

"Video From Hell is a video released in 1987. It is a compilation of pieces of music and video from a series of projects that FZ presumably planned to finish and release for home video, including a companion video for the You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore series of albums, however these projects were ultimately never completed. Many pieces from this video had previously appeared on a one-hour Night Flight special entitled "You Are What You Watch". The music video for the song "G-Spot Tornado" features color 8mm footage that Zappa shot at a county fair in the early 1960s, while the music video for "Night School" features footage from the making of his feature film 200 Motels. It also features the music video for "You Are What You Is" which was banned by MTV. A guitar solo duet between Zappa and Steve Vai taken from the song "Stevie's Spanking" was later released on You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore Vol. 4."
