There’s a new Rifftrax On Demand up. This time, it’s a short speaking of the horrors of those nasty heroin users, and how you can avoid the hypnotic lure of the drug. And speaking of destructive things — hey, DRM. (Yes, I just compared DRM to heroin, and I realize how ludicrous that is. Of course, DRM is much worse.) You know how DivX is the devil and the recent Rifftrax shorts have been thoroughly encrusted with DRM that kept you locked into your DivX player, unless you manually applied the commentary to the short? Rage no more, friends.
The Terrible Truth is available in DRM-free form. Admittedly, it’s just listed as “experimental,” but it’s a great sign. When you purchase the 99-cent short, you’ll be given access to five versions: the usual DivX file, the raw mp3 commentary, the DRM-free MPEG2 file, and versions that are compatible with the iPod and the Zune. Can I tell you something? I love you, Rifftrax. Let’s get married.
