I had to re-upload most of the Spiritual Spectrum videos, so the individual links to shows may no longer work, or will stop working shortly. You can find them all by going tohttp://www.youtube.com/results?search_q ... um%22&aq=f
After I had uploaded about 2 dozens shows, YouTube informed me that I was no longer subject to their 15 minute per video limit (which is why I was doing them in 4-5 parts each). So I am redoing them all as full hour shows and slowly uploading them one per day. Also, I found that some really crummy websites were embedding our videos on their sites which were full of ads, and not giving any credit to SS, so I am turning off the embedding feature to prevent this.
Once they are all uploaded (114 shows), then I will link each show individually from our main website www.spiritualspectrum.org
and remove the old RealMedia files (since most of us can't play those anymore). About 80% of all the shows have at least one UB reader on the panel or as a host, so even if the topics aren't specifically about the UB, you may find many of the interesting.
I like MaryJo's description of the intros as "tedious". We wanted to attract a younger audience so as the series progressed (it lasted 10 years), we made the intro's more edgy, sometimes bordering on painful, musically speaking. We actually took that step further and did a 26 part series call Do Not Adjust Your Set which features the full versions of a lot of the SS intro music with the psychedelic video feedback. One of these days I'll get around to posting those on YouTube also. One of the reviewers for the DNAYS series said "it makes me want to jump out the window."
If any of you want to download the shows, you can do that my using Firefox and installing one of the YouTube downloader add-ons like EasyYouTubeDownloader4.1. The files are 1-2GBs each and can be downloaded as Flash or MP4 videos. You can get a standalone free Flash player at http://martijndevisser.com/blog/flv-player/
This would allow you to view any downloaded shows on a laptop or computer at your convenience. (This only applies to PCs, I'm not sure how Apple computers can do this)
Please feel free to post any comments about the SS series here. I turned off the commenting on the YouTube page as I wanted to keep it semi-professional looking.
