That is great news. I already own the extended Blu-ray but hope other people enjoy this awesome documentary.

Oh, by the way, Solvent, I love your soundtrack. It sounds excellent on vinyl.

So, what you are saying is I should make a porn spoof: I Dream Of Wieners? Me, my cock, and modular synths.

First, cheers for the kind words on my soundtrack LP and thanks for the support of buying on vinyl, coyotedad23!

RE Netflix: Sigh... yeah it ended up getting pulled from Netflix USA but I do believe/HOPE it is temporary. Check back in a few days and HOPEFULLY it will be back up on Netflix USA. Though it won't be in other Netflix territories for a while, and only in some territories. (It did appear briefly today on Netflix UK and Australia too, which it wasn't supposed to... this error is likely the reason it was taken down from Netflix USA too).

I want to say a few words about the diff btwn the Hardcore Edition (which is now OOP, has been unavail for about 5 months, though with a few copies still floating around) and this cut:

For those who've seen the Hardcore Edition - this cut is really quite different, if you're wondering about whether to check it out. A few new scenes added (not a lot, but some), a different narrator that IMO gives the film a more serious tone, and overall I really do feel that it tells the story in a more effective, streamlined way. A lot of great material was cut from the Hardcore Edition, but if I had to choose one to show people - even Hardcore synth nerds like me - I would pick this shorter cut: Robert put a lot more work into it and it is the superior edit by far, IMO. Also, for those who were in the Hardcore Edition, I have to warn you that some of you didn't make the cut here - sorry!

Awww. And after reading what you said about it being a superior cut, I REALLY want to see it now lol.

So it got pulled from Netflix USA in error and it should return soon?

I was unclear about if it would be back on Netflix USA, until a few minutes ago... now I can confirm: it will be back on Netflix USA shortly. I don't have an exact date but I expect it'll be within a week, maybe even within a day or 2. I will update when I have info.

I'd like to ask that you please don't ask me about any international Netflix dates, because I don't have any to report yet. It will only be on Netflix USA for now though - the fact that it did appear briefly on Netflix UK and Australia was an error.

So it's still not available. Do you happen to know if this "superior" cut is exclusive to Netflix, Solvent?

Hella congrats, Solvent.
I just talked to someone the other day that saw the doc
and got obsessed with modular synths. The project has had great reach.

Great news!

Is it on Netflix streaming, or only the "DVD by mail" service?

Cheers. Honestly, you wouldn't even believe some of the stories we've heard. In Berlin, we met a guy who after watching IDOW and then getting into modulars, he decided to make a total career change, ending his successful architecture/design career to work at Schneider's Buero!

It will be streaming on Netflix. In fact I think it should be up today on USA Netflix, but I haven't heard any confirmations. Should be VERY soon though... And coming to some other Netflix territories streaming later this year.

The street is correct...just watched it last night.

I agree with you...the new "cinematic release" cut is excellent. I was always curious how you were going to reconcile the two different sections of the Hardcore Edition. This version has a nice flow from the past to the present...the only thing I felt was missing was the extended music performances.

I'm still glad to own the HE (it is, after all, hardcore), but if I were going to show it to somebody to help them understand why I waste so much of my life with modulars, it would be this one.

Well, it's back... but no, it is not at all exclusive to Netflix. It's on DVD, iTunes, Vimeo On Demand (EU only for Vimeo),...

Just finished watching this on the Norwegian iTunes store. As s o l v e n t said, it really tells the story in a more effective, streamlined way. Well worth re-watching, and also worth recommending to friends outside the modular circles.
