Forget About The Tongue-Tied Lightning
Walking home from rehearsal tonight, through the snow and wind, I had one singular utterly redundant thought.
“IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE APRIL”.
Just saying, is all.
But it’s better now, cause a) I’m indoors, and b) I have I Am Trying To Break Your Heart running in the window behind this one. Brad picked up the DVD at his work tonight, applying his handy employee discount.
I saw this film last Fall (original review here) but there’s so much bonus material on the DVD, it’s an embaressment of riches. In addition to the commentary by director Sam Jones and band members Jeff Tweedy and Glenn Kotche, there’s a second disc with over 70 minutes of extra footage – uncut scenes, live performances, etc. It’s so good. If you’re looking for an impartial review, look elsewhere. I just got a double DVD documentary of my favorite band making one of my favorite albums ever… I will gush, thank you very much.
Now – does anyone have any idea how to capture audio off a DVD for the purpose of making an audio CD?
