The Official Live at the Showbox DVD thread

Postby NatureBoy » Tue Dec 02, 2008 2:07 pm

ORDER THE DVD HERE

The Documentary thread is getting junked up with conversation pertaining to this, so maybe a splinter thread is in order.

Have you seen it yet? Where did you buy it? Have you read reviews about it? Where? What do you think of it?

I bought it from Amazon, because I didn't know Barsuk was even going to acknowledge it until my order already went through. And Amazon usually ships from a local warehouse, so I don't have to worry about Duty, Brokerage fees, and taxes.

Is it okay to say that one of the things I am looking forward to the most is the commentary track? :)
Did you record that with everyone together in the same room? Did you edit that track in any way at all?...

The only part edited out of commentary was just the 35 minutes where the band goes on a diatribe ruthlessly belittling its internet fans. The words "Rubes", "schmucks" and "nincompoops" were thrown around recklessly, from what I've heard.

Based on the setlist at the end of that review, Pushover and Hindsight got cut?

You know how they say "don't buy things leading up to christmas because somebody might buy it for you"?

Well I like to live dangerously, so I just ordered the DVD from Barsuk.

Whoa Nellie.

*minor tantrum* Well I cannot cancel my amazon order anymore. Meh.

Pushover and Hindsight got cut?

I'm okay with losing Pushover, but Hindsight? Bummer. But still, that setlist is really sweet.

I briefly considered a boycott, but even losing Hindsight could not make me less excited about this whole thing, especially after Imaginary Viva's very vivid review.

I'd like to give two thumbs up to Victoria for her beautifully written review and to Liesbeth for her use of alliteration. Nice job, ladies!
