ARISE! -- The SubGenius Movie, is now available on DVD from our

This re-issue has been a long time in the remaking. Working from the
original 1" video master tapes, we carefully restored this legendary
video collage masterpiece to a better condition than it enjoyed in
1991, when the master was last worked over. (ARISE was distributed by
Polygram in the early 90s, and was even in stores briefly --until
Blockbuster went all "Christian" and had 800 copies returned en masse,
resulting in Polygram basically dropping it like a dirty-bomb. For many
years, only VHS copies and bootlegs have been available.)

We carefully reworked and improved the sound, tweaked shots here and
there, threw in a couple of Bushes and an Osama, and as many bonuses as
the DVD size allows -- including a gorgeous Dobbshead meditation loop,
the SubGenius Church commercial from 1990, and the brand new X-Day at
Brushwood short. The interface is slick as snot on a doorknob, with
little time-windows into each of the 27 chapters and bonus bits. ONLY
$19.95. BUY NOW!! I'm posting the soundtrack album to
alt.binaries.slack in MP3s this week, if you want to just hear Hal
Robins' dramatic narration and DK Jones' stunning music, and try to
IMAGINE what we came up with for visuals.

Digitally Restored Directly from the Original 1-inch High-Resolution
Master Tapes*

Cross-posted to alt.cult-movies,, and If you want your message to be seen by
afficionadoes of whatever subject you're discussing, you really *must*
stop preaching to the converted and spread the message OUT THERE to
the Great Unwashed. Sort of like what you do when you preach at
Starwood as well as X-Day.
