Michael Moore’s Tourgasm

There was an article on MSNBC yesterday afternoon about how Michael Moore was going to follow in the footsteps of Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails and release his new feature film, Slacker Uprising, on-line, FOR FREE. The article claimed that it was the first time a major motion picture was being distributed in this way. Oh cool. Very hip. I love alternative distribution methods! Except what the article didn’t mention was how this movie looks like the worst:

Oh wow, Michael Moore, we can have that movie for free? We don’t have to pay 11 dollars to see you glorify yourself before giant crowds of mildly supportive teenagers for an hour and a half? The only thing more clever than your distribution system is your definition of “major motion picture.” Nicely done on bringing the word “slacker” back, though. If we can just get all the slackers to register to vote, I’m pretty sure Bill Clinton will beat George Bush! Because it’s 1992!
