This is how I feel, too. I just got it last week; watched the DVD one time all the way through, and loved it. Haven't listened to the CDs yet, though.
I don't think it was really necessary for Alex to say, "f**k you, puppet", but it did kind of make me laugh a little bit.
I agree. I stop the dvd right before it gets to that. Totally unnecessary, and seemingly out of character for Alex, or any of them.
I rewatched the dvd earlier today and I had forgotten that he says "I'm sorry I yelled at the puppet" a few moments later. But the whole Exit Stage Left video has a weird vibe around it, especially when we know Neil runs off to his bus the moment the last beat drops.
And I'm still kind of disappointed they didn't add any special features on the dvd.
I just watch the Tulsa video bootleg. It was better than the official release. In my opinion. I decided that when I want to revisit R40, I will hereinafter watch the Tulsa bootleg.
I think they are saving any special features they might have added to R40 Live for a future dvd down the road.
I assume that is tapehead2's recording...that girl puts out some awesome stuff
Agree that she puts out the best.
Edit: I'm watching The Camera Eye from the Newark show. This must be another Tapehead2 video. She really is good.
