More Free Media


Slacker Uprising, the new film by Michael Moore, is available for free download starting today. DVDs are also available for $9.95.
Such releases are more common in the music industry, where artists like Radiohead and Trent Reznor have experimented with alternative release and pricing schemes.
“This is being done entirely as a gift to my fans,” Moore said. “The only return any of us are hoping for is the largest turnout of young voters ever at the polls in November.”

  1. That dude jumped the shark in ’03.

  2. Well, I like Michael Moore, but after downloading and watching this last night I know why it was free. There’s nothing to it. It’s just a compilation of footage of his 2004 last minute tour to get people registered to vote. And of course, Kerry didn’t win, so the tour became a non-factor. His other movies have been worth paying for, but this one isn’t.

  3. So, he’s devaluing the value of free. Uncool.
