With only a few weeks to go until Election Day, director/showman/clown—strike out words depending on your political preferences—Michael Moore's Slacker Uprising is now available on the internet. Created to promote voting among young people, Moore is saying that this is the first full-feature film to be released for free on the web, using Blip.tv, Amazon Video on Demand, iTunes, DivX, MPEG4, and Lycos VOD. The movie follows a 60-city tour across 20 battleground states to promote voting with the objective of changing the color of the current administration. It has appearances by REM, Joan Baez (Steve Jobs' former girlfriend, for those of you who are not as old as myself), Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam), Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine), Viggo Mortensen, Roseanne Barr, and of course, Michael Moore himself, as well as a bunch of extras. Quite honestly, while I personally agree—looking from outside the US—with the need for change, I would have preferred to get the Dark Knight free in HD. [Slacker Uprising]

You forget people like Michael Moore think their opinions are the only opinions. He would be happy if we had a one party Democratic Dictatorship.
