I never thought this would ever be released but somehow the folks at Other Cinema did it, and they did it right. Not only do you get almost 3 hours of Negativland's greatest hits, including the clip Gimme The Mermaid which confounded and confused the crowd at AWA a few years back, you also get a CD of Negativland's hits covered by a, "Gospel R & B Doo-Wop group." Break out your favorite audio editor and start cutting!
Now I know what you're thinking. "I saw that Mermaid thingy at Japanese Cartoon Hell, that was crap!" Ok, I'll admit, that wasn't Negativland at their best. If you're new to Negativland I suggest checking out Christianity is Stupid or the lawsuit inducing I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For with American Top 40's Casey Kasem, they're sure to please!
If you haven't already bought your own copy this is well worth the rental, you can find Our Favorite Things at both Blockbuster Online and Netflix and if it's not in your rental queue what are you waiting for? Do it now! Before the corporate media lawyers realize this is available and start sending out unmarked black trucks to haul these out to the desert and burn them. Hurry! Before it's too late!
