Megastar DVD == total awesomeness

How To Be A Megastar Live on DVD (with CD!) came yesterday to work. I popped it in for a quick preview, and this is some cream-in-your-pants worthy stuff for the Blue Man Group fan. The fact that the entire thing (minus the video segments) is also on the CD for your audio listening pleasure is fucking brilliant. And it's only fifteen bucks!

This one seems to capture the whole feeling of the show better, in part because the editing seems minimal. They cut to wide shots of the arena between songs, so it has the same flow. This is the 2.1 version of the tour, with Peter Moore and Adrian Hartley as the singers. It's definitely the tightest version of the show in terms of flow, and from the few tracks I previewed, it seems to translate extremely well. It even sounds more like an arena show.

Special features include the Inside The Tube doc that was on PBS, as well as the videos for "I Feel Love" and "Mono."

Can't wait to rock this at home tonight!

If it's the same special that was on HDNet a little while ago, I'm not sure that it's worth it for me.

I just didn't get "The Feeling" watching it, and even though I don't always appreciate big giant loud drums, I'll admit that the big bass drum adds a lot to the show. You just don't get that feeling on the special.

It's still pretty decent though.

Yes, it was that show.
