New Holiday Special DVD Covers

I took Rikter's blue cover version and tweaked it. (Credit is given on the cover.) I made it more festive, and gave it a little more depth. The text on the back refers to the new version made from the 1st generation broadcast tape transfer found in Des Moines, Iowa.

I am uploading it to alt.binaries.starwars now. This is the only way I can "host" the cover, so if anyone else can host it officially, please download it from there.

Oh, and I made one with and without a Santa hat for our Jewish friends.

Very nice, almost makes me want to buy it. Almost.

Loved the GL quote at the back cover
“Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” — Nazi Reich Marshal Hermann Goering

NICE cover!!

Wow, great job ThatArtGuy! However, I was hoping you could upload this cover somewhere else, other than a newsgroup that is.

Unfortunately, being an AOL user, I can't access this newsgroup. Truthfully, I hate AOL, but my girlfriend loves it and so I'm kind of trapped for the time being.

Still, it's a fantastic cover. I'm giving my friends copies of this DVD for Christmas, so it would look really nice if I could use this festive holiday themed cover.

Thanks for the hard work.

I still can't figure out how to work this newsgroup

What a nice Christmas gift. Actually, if I didn't already have a copy, I'd love it if a friend secured a bootleg of it for me, and if I could copy DVDs, I'd be handing it out as well.

What's this newsgroup? How would one access it?

Unfortunately, it does me little good being an AOL user. The only News readers that work for me are the paid services and right now I cant afford it.

I just sat through my second viewing of the Holiday Special tonight...mind you, it was eased by watching it with a group, but still words fail me. My friends and I came up with this scheme of hooking up a microphone to someone's laptop and passing the mic around as we watched it, essentially recording our own commentary. It was wild and hilarious for the first forty-five minutes, but eventually it got really quiet and our jokes became forced as time went on. But it was great (what I wish we could do is save it as a DVD audio track, sync it up with the Holiday Special itself, and make a whole new copy of my disc, including optional commentary). If anyone really wants to listen to it, I'm thinking of making a low bitrate version available on my web space, just because it was so fun to record.

I did something like that once. After an hour you get tired of it, so it's better to do it 45 minutes a day. I mean, even Servo, Crow and Joel took breaks, and they had scripted it beforehand.

Anyone happen to know if there exists an actual disc graphic made for the Holiday Special? I didn't see one in the covers I downloaded (so long ago)...I was wondering if perhaps someone could direct me to the most current collection of covers and disc art from Rikter et al.

The most recent DVD case version I have is Angrysun v5...which I thought was an improvement over v4 overall, however it lacks the title on the front of the case; one has to read the spine to see what exactly it is. So I made a slight tweak (just grabbed the title from v4 and pasted it onto v5), see below. Rikter, what do you think? (or did you make future revisions after v5 that perhaps make my little contribution obsolete and irrelevant?) I've no intention of claiming others' hard work as my own of course, it is just for my own personal copy.

Neat - update to the cover - I'm sure others will also like it. I did toy with the idea of a logo but after I did a similar front but I like the "TV Guide" teaser style I ended up with.. The logo makes the front look a bit busy with the mini synopsis and cast listing. BUT it is a cool update!

If you email it to me in Hi-Rez I'll add it to my Covers Collection (new torrent coming in the new year!) - Add your forum name in the email and I will mod the cover a bit more to personalize it for you

Actually, check out the bottom image here on prillaman.net...it looks like someone already made this adjustment, although I see a few aspects of that cover that don't quite match your v5. Oh well, I guess it just shows I wasn't the only one who thought it could use a title on the front of the case. So is there an active torrent right now with the cover collection, or do we just have to wait?

the wait is on......
