Just as many who venture out to Hollywood for fame and fortune to this day, Edward D. Wood Jr. had similar aspirations. Wood idolized classic horror film actor Bela Lugosi and director/actor Orson Welles. Attempting to achieve his own stardom as a director, he fell short and became consumed by alcoholism, dying at 54 in 1978.

Until the release of Tim Burton’s film, Ed Wood, in 1994 Wood’s films barely qualified for cult film status. But after the film’s release in theaters, titles such as Glen or Glenda (1953), Bride of the Monster (1955) and Plan 9 from Outer Space, (1959) started to come in demand. People wanted to know just how bad the “worst director of all time” really was.

While Burton elected only to allude to Wood’s ’60s and ’70s ventures into the world of low-brow cinema and all-out smut. The more modern re-releases of such films as Orgy of the Dead (1965) and Pretty Models All in A Row (1969) on DVD gives those curious enough to watch a glimpse into Wood’s inner psyche – a psyche best represented in the recently released Necromania by Fleshbot Films.

Long claimed to be one of Wood’s “lost” smut films and only available in multi-generational bootlegs in its soft-core version, Fleshbot released Necromania (1971) on DVD with both its hardcore (Hot! Hot! Hot!) and soft-core (Hot!) versions intact.

While his soft-core flicks that he wrote and co-directed with A.C. Stephen (Stephen Apostolof) were more prominent and have become easier to find (Fugitive Girls, Snow Bunnies and Class Reunion), Necromania seemed to be lost forever until prints of the film were discovered in an old warehouse.

While the majority of sex in Wood’s directed movies and the ones he did with Stephen were simulated, there’s no mistaking that the sex seen in Necromania is the real deal. While other films even leading up to the mid-’70s had sex scenes spliced in after production to increase their peepshow life, Wood pulled no punches and dared to demonstrate humans in their most carnal state of mind even though other directors, such as his contemporary A.C. Stephen, were very cautious of sexual depictions in their films.

Necromania is the story of Danny and Shirley who go to see the mysterious sex therapist Madame Heles because their sex life is stuck in the proverbial rut. Supposedly Maila Nurmi, the actress who portrayed Vampira and starred in Plan 9, was originally asked to play the part of Madame Heles, but declined because she felt it would be detrimental to her already floundering career. This from the woman who appeared in a film called Sex Kittens Go to College(1960).

Even the cast declined to be credited in the film. However, future ’70s hardcore porn actress Rene Bond (pre-breast implants) is prominent throughout the film portraying Shirley, and Bond’s longtime boyfriend Ric Lutze appears as Danny. Bond also starred in several collaborations between Stephen and Wood, making her a Wood favorite.

Two camera operators had to be hired, as one refused to film any of the hardcore shots, and even Wood opted to use the pseudonym Don Miller in the opening credits under primewire whose requirements is to shoot a fantastic sequence of the movie.

From the very beginning, the viewer is faced with the mystery of Who exactly is Madame Heles? We get an idea from the painted skulls, stuffed timber wolf and inverted cross hanging over a well-polished casket.

But her lingerie-clad minion only replies to the inquisitive couple that all shall be revealed at midnight. And so the rest of the film tends to follow typical porn flick fare in that each person involved somehow manages to end up with their clothes off and have sex with someone else introduced in the film.

Wood explores concepts of lesbianism, oral stimulation, partner swapping and even orgies, which are all themes on par with ’70s porn, yet Wood goes on to do something fans of his “work” claim is one of his most redeeming qualities. Wood includes a lesson of morality interwoven into one of the scenes. Since Danny is at the retreat to see Heles for shortcomings of his own, Heles’ minion brings forth the proposition that being adequate is all in the eye of the beholder and that some things happen for a reason.

Subtext and dialogue are things Wood has always been known for throughout his more serious sci-fi works, and his sense of humor is something that carried over into his other works of smut.

In Necromania Wood is given the luxury, if even for the first time, of having actors and actresses who seemingly have some grasp on the concept of acting. Even though dialogue is sparse, “Necromania” doesn’t have the structure of a typical ’70s porn flick.

The film isn’t entirely structured around each sex scene, but more so each scene seems to be a step to the final level of sexual experience the film has to offer. In this way, the viewer can’t help but keep watching to see what happens next, which is another factor Wood’s films possessed: Either to keep watching to see how bad it could possibly get, or to see how it all ends up.

While some of the close-ups and pans are a little shaky in the establishing shots, there’s still something about this movie that saves it from the garbage can. Perhaps it’s the cheesiness of the early ’70s décor, the classic hairstyles or the fact that people still had hair “down there” that adds a great deal of charm to this lost disasterpiece.

For those with a taste for cheesy ’70s porn, this is a worthwhile venture, or perhaps even for the tried and true Wood fan who is over the age of 18.

For others there will be no wonder as to why Wood died poor and lacking the recognition he may or may not have deserved had he been born much earlier or much later than he had been.

As a testimony to the man, we are left with his child-like wonder at the universe in his early sci-fi features. Yet we are also left with his very adult-like fascination with the occult and the sensuous female form in the dark introspective journey known as Necromania.

I’m not what you’d call a hardcore gamer, not even a gamer for that matter. I’m the woman that moans, whines and shouts at her husband to get his backside of the sofa as I attempt to peel away the XBOX control from his hands.

That is…until I downloaded the World of Warcraft trial.

I had decided it would be a good idea to see what all the fuss was about. After all, I’d given my friend enough grief about him being a gaming geek and thought it would be best to try it before I continued to mock him further.

I didn’t expect to find the game so addictive that I actually ended up paying the monthly subscription. I downloaded the game which, all in all, took around eight hours and my computer is above average. I didn’t realize just how much effort had been put into the thing. Even down to the minor details, the game is perfected immaculately.

In comparison with direct competitor Final Fantasy, WOW takes the lead in every sense of the word. I could not find any fault with the game whatsoever. Sure you get the odd nutball who thinks your character looks hot and that it would be cool if you would agree to date his online character, at first this a little creepy but you learn to avoid the hardcore weirdoes.

The game itself is simple, you complete tasks and work your way through the different levels until you reach elite status. There are endless tasks and if you get stuck on one of them you can move on to the next until you’re a little stronger or find someone else to help you.

There are various characters available for you to choose from and they are fully customizable to suit your preferences. You can also choose whether or not you want to be a ‘baddy’ or a ‘goodie’ (Horde or Alliance).

There are, I have noticed, some rather strange sites that sell WOW gold for real money! What surprises me more is that people will actually pay for it!

I don’t entirely know why World of Warcraft is so addictive but I know that for a non-gamer it has me hooked with the endless adventures available. You can also upgrade the package you already have installed because Blizzard is constantly releasing new ‘patches’ for the game and add-ons to unlock new features and abilities.

Your character will develop skills and abilities based on his/her kind. For instance, Rogue’s can develop pickpocket and stealth skills because they are viewed as sneaky breeds.

A night elf will develop skills and abilities which are more magically focused and you can build up the strength levels as you play.

The sheer amount of space this game holds is unreal. You can travel throughout the countries by Griffin, train and many other means that I have yet to discover. It’s fun to meet people from other countries and as bizarre as this may sound the topic of conversation between me, a girl from Leeds, a guy from Norway and another guy from Massachusetts was politics. We got in rather deep about completely irrelevant stuff and they were only too happy to help me understand more complex parts of the game that I was yet to accomplish.

They have cool features on there that allows you to buy and sell items that you have picked up or require and cannot find using the auction house in each town/city. You can leave your valuables in a safe in the bank and they will hold anything of value, not just gold. There are post boxes everywhere that enable you to send and receive mail amongst other players so if they want to send you an item or money they can do it easily.

Hunter characters can train pets which is quite amusing at times and very useful for defeating stronger enemies. You can set the game to any mode you want, for instance, you can have straight role-played or PVP (player vs. player) which is quite scary if you’re relatively new!

I would say if you haven’t played the game but want to see what the fascination is then gone for it. It doesn’t cost anything for 30 days and you might actually enjoy it. I absolutely love it and to my dear friend that suffered months of intolerable abuse from me, I apologize, you were right all along. For those that are already into Worlds of Warcraft, they can check 2048 cupcakes unblocked for more amazing games with interactive gameplay and awesome adventure stuff. 

 

With women in the working world now, it’s more convenient than ever to take the family out to eat when dinner time rolls around. However, the cost of a “Night Out” can strain a family’s budget, even in a two-income family!

Eat dinner out and everyone can choose what they want from the menu. There are no groceries to shop for, dishes to wash, and no kitchen clean up afterward. The only problem with eating out is… the bill. Depending on the restaurant you visit and your family’s appetites, the bill could easily top fifty dollars or more to feed your hungry brood! But, don’t be alarmed. You can still afford to take your family out to eat at a restaurant as long as you’re a frugal consumer. A “frugal” consumer follows these tips in order to make their family’s eating out experiences affordable, and fun, at the same time!

Tip 1 – Use Coupons, Coupons, Coupons,

Money-saving coupons for a variety of restaurants can be found in many places. Check your local newspaper, in the coupon section of your phone book, inside fliers that come in the mail, and at the restaurants your family visits. Of course, the best coupons you can use to save big on are ones that offer free food. The most popular of these is the “Buy One, Get One Free” type. If you buy a sandwich, for example, you can get a second sandwich of equal value for free. And who can’t use free food? These coupons also offer free entrees, desserts, et cetera.

Getting coupons online is also these days. You can download these printable coupons from websites like dealexpert.net that offer you some of the best deals that are there in the market. This way not only you save money but all the hassle of going through newspaper and magazines as well. 

You should also take a look at “Entertainment Coupon Books”. These books are usually sold in the fall of the year. They cost around twenty dollars, which may sound a little steep. But the coupons inside can save you a couple hundred dollars or more! If you’re not sure whether “Entertainment Coupon Books” are sold in your area of the country, check with your local

chamber of commerce office.

Tip 2 – Eat Dinner At an Earlier Time

Most sit-down restaurants include “Lunch Specials” on their menus. These specials are always a good value for your money. The only requirement is that you must eat your meal at certain times. Times vary, but they can extend up to four o’clock in the afternoon. The difference in price between a lunch special and an evening meal is always several dollars! So, in order to take advantage of this money-saver, get the family together and eat dinner out earlier before the prices go up!

Tip 3 – Share an Order and Save Money…and Calories!

How many times have you ordered a spaghetti dinner and received a platter full of pasta that was piled high? Restaurants are usually generous in their portions. So generous, in fact, that you have to let your belt out a notch just to finish your meal! And, if you’re watching your waistline, a portion of food can often be too big and contain too many calories!

You can save money and stay on your diet at the same time if you just order one meal and share it with a member of your family. Many restaurants will give you one meal with an extra plate and silverware if you just ask! Not only will this tip save you money, but it will also save your waistline!

Tip 4 – Find Restaurants That Serve Buffets

A buffet-style meal is the best of all worlds come together. You can eat a variety of foods for one price. And, that one price is usually pretty reasonable. No one goes away hungry from a buffet table! You can choose from hot foods, cold foods, appetizers, salads, and desserts.

Another money-saver with a buffet-style meal is that, since you and your family serve yourselves, there’s no need to tip a waitress or a waiter. Also, sometimes, kids are allowed to eat for free!

This classic black-and-white film is still in demand at Netflix by fans of Jimmy Stewart and especially by those who love a good mystery story. Based on a true story, the title, Call Northside 777, refers to an ad placed by an elderly cleaning lady who offers a reward for information concerning a cop killing eleven years ago during Prohibition in 1932. Tillie Wiecek’s son Frank, played by Richard Conte, was accused of the murder and is serving a 99-year prison term although he claimed all along that he was innocent of the crime. If you do not have a subscription to Netflix then another option for you to watch this movie is 123 movies. You can watch this movie for free there along with several other classics. 

J. McNeal, a reporter for the Chicago Times, is given the assignment by his editor Brian Kelly, played by Lee J. Cobb, to contact Tillie Wiecek to determine whether her story is newsworthy. McNeal initially feels that Frank Wiecek is guilty and that he is wasting his time bringing himself up to date on the case. After interviewing Tillie Wiecek, as well as Frank’s ex-wife and Frank himself, McNeal has a sense that Frank may be telling the truth. Frank had begged his wife Helen to divorce him and to start a new life for herself and their young boy, to which she reluctantly complied.

The audience soon realizes how far technology has taken us since the days of Prohibition. Lie detector machines are much more sophisticated today than the way in which they were portrayed in this film. McNeal makes use of a miniature camera to photograph old newspapers, reports, and pictures of the case that are still extant in police files. The final break in the case comes from McNeal’s efforts to have a newspaper photograph enlarged in the Police Lab. Today, it would be a simple procedure; at that time, it was not always possible to accomplish.

Frank Wiencek’s conviction was based on a key witness’ story that Frank was the cop killer. Wanda Skutnik initially identified Frank as the perpetrator of the killing which happened at Wanda’s delicatessen. She later changed her story when she viewed Frank in a police line-up and stated that Frank was not the man at her store. It is then revealed to the audience that Wanda’s so-called delicatessen was actually a speakeasy and that the police threatened to close her down if she did not finger Frank as the killer.

McNeal’s dogged determination to find the truth hinges on a newspaper photograph that has a newsboy in the background holding his stack of papers. The date on the newspaper is so significant that it has the ability to free a man imprisoned for 11 years for a crime he did not commit. We witness the tension of the photographer and the reporter as the picture is developed before our eyes with the date plainly enlarged in an old-fashioned bath given to negatives sixty years ago. That is why classic movies are still so much in demand. Fans love to view the primitive methods that crime fighters used compared to the technology of today. Jimmy Stewart did an excellent job in this film; it is easy to see why his fan-base was so huge.

Buying a property is not an easy job. In fact it’s a very tough job and the toughness is increasing day by day as the rules and regulations are becoming harder and harder. Theses days, the world market are undergoing great loss. Either its US or England all is experiencing a major setback. Real estate is also not far behind. You must have seen that construction work of many buildings has been left alone. Can you guess what the reason behind this is? Yes the main reason is bad economy. Not only you but the whole world is suffering from bad economy. One feels thrice before selling their house sine the prices are going down and down daily. The problem is what should they do? The answer is very difficult but renting the property is not so bad option. I will explain you about how to rent a property.

You must have gone through the rental process and hence you must know that renting is a very risky job. Yes it really is. Can you imagine what you will do when the person whom you have rented your house refuses to release your house? You will certainly be in great trouble if you have not signed a contract.

It was not older than yesterday that I came across one of the deal like this. I took the person who was in need to the owner of the house. Everything was fine but I hesitated on one point. The person wanted to pay the advance which was half of the monthly rental. But I stopped him from doing so. The reason was simple that he should sign a contract first and after that only he will be allowed to pay advance or even full money. Do you believe this is harsh or useless? My dear friend, I assure you that it’s must to sign the contract. If you will not do so then you will be the victim sometime later.

Once you have signed the contract, the next step is to fix the rental amount. You should look all the things like: the cost of electricity, water tax, value of the house. I assure you that you will be required to do some research as far as deciding the rent is concerned. To help you on this aspect, you can consult with a condo management Naples or any other real estate or property professionals. 

Once you have fixed the rental amount you next step should be to talk to your real estate agents. You should really take his guidance throughout the process. You must know that he is a professional and knows more than you.

I have told you some of the steps. I will really insist you that whenever you again try to rent out your house you should follow following points and you will see that you will always be in profit.
