Slacker Uprising Coming

Oscar winning documentary filmmaker and liberal political commentator Michael Moore will be releasing his next film, Slacker Uprising on September 23rd -- online, for free. His subject are the young voters in red states who decide to get actively involved in the political process. No more slacking, they're going to register and they're going to vote (to Moore's liking hopefully...)

Fragments of the film are bound to go viral, given Moore's public persona, the hot-button issues in today's political environment and the social statement the film makes. Mass media will cover it and push it to broader circles. Can't wait to see slacker games emerge...

I got a nice email from Simon Owens, the blogger behind Bloggasm and contributor to PBS's MediaShift. He wrote an article about Robert Greenwald, the filmmaker whose company Brave New Films, distributes Michael Moore's documentary. Here's the link:

The article and the Brave New Films' YouTube channel are certainly worth checking out.
