Michael Moore's Slacker Uprising now available for free

Those are Michael Moore's words, not mine. A little while back I posted a brief about Michael Moore planning to give away his new documentary, Slacker Uprising.

Well Moore has kept true to his word. For those not on Moore's mailing list, here's what I just received:


It's officially September 23rd and my new film, "Slacker Uprising," is now premiering live at SlackerUprising.com! It is available for free as a gift from me to all of you. And you have my permission to share it or show it in any way you see fit.

Watch it all: http://slackeruprising.com/download/location.php?utm_medium=download&utm_source=30267780

At that link, there are five ways you can watch it free and without advertising:

blip.tv is providing streaming right from slackeruprising.com, free of commercials and advertising.
Amazon Video on Demand will provide a higher resolution version of the above stream for people with lots of bandwidth. It will be available in a few hours.
iTunes will make it easy for you to download "Slacker Uprising" on your iTunes, iPod, or Apple TV, and view it there or transmit it to your television. This way, the film can be portable as well as for home viewing. This will be available soon.
Hypernia is providing bandwidth and servers to host MPEG4 and DivX versions of "Slacker Uprising" online, so you can burn a DVD or download the film to watch on your computer, XBOX, or PS3.
Lycos is providing free streaming of the film and an on-demand version.

Stream it, download it, burn it now. It's the first time a major feature-length film is being released for free on the internet. You can be part of this historic moment by logging on now!

P.S. Remember, we're doing something that's never been done, so I have no idea how it will all go! Don't give up if it seems to go slow (like with any streaming, give the downloading a head start before you hit play), and don't forget there are two places where you can actually download it to your hard drive and three ways to stream it. You can get to all of them at the link above.

P.P.S. If you're not yet registered to vote, here's a good link: https://www.voteforchange.com/. There's less than two weeks for you to get registered, especially if you have moved since the last time you voted.

There you have it.

Have you seen it yet Mikey, is it worth the bandwidth it is downloaded on?

There were not screening the email sign ups, but when I went to download it, I was blocked. According to them, it will only available to Canada and the US. Can you guys in Australia get it?

I got the same message. That said, I know I used to be able to fool Internet Exploiter into thinking I was in another country by simply changing your regional settings in the control panel. By doing that I was able to access all the US Only content on my media centre.

I am testing this out now in Virtual Box to see if it still holds true. Stand by....

Update: Changing the regional settings didn't work, so I tried the more obvious way I should have thought of first.

Just go to http://www.hidemyass.com and enter the URL there. It will ask if you are a US or Canadian resident. Tick the checkbox and you are in.

Too easy.

So I watched it last night and I was going to write a review but I turned it off. It was repetitive and monotonous. I can only hear the same message so many times before I just start tuning out.
