Total Sensory Overload

One of the most watched videos in my nerdy collection, I seriously have not watched this whole thing in one sitting. It's not that it's that long, it's just that there's so much to see and hear that it will blow your mind long before the last few minutes. However, if you find a copy, snatch it up. If it's for rental, then by all means, make yourself a copy. Entirely worth the three dollar rental, the twenty dollar purchase, or the nine hundred dollar something or other, this thing will entertain you for years to come. The Subgenius changed the way I saw the world, and this is the living proof. Buy the book, seriously.
