Notes: Clear sound, not the same source as the single VHS that is so common. Interesting capture & matrix-splicing of these sources into one congruent creation. Some very interesting stuff actually. It looks to me that the common VHS source, shot from the middle balcony, is definitely sourced from a VHS of unknown but low generation. The angle from off-center looks like it could be sourced from a master but there is a line of analog VHS>DVD distortion which leads me to believe that it is not from the master or that line is correlative to the matrix. Not sure. As it is, this is a worthwhile acquisition for anyone's collection. There are some strikingly clear shots of MJK & also of Danny.

Maynardism:       
"Wanna hear some good news? Sometime later this year, there's gonna be a full, feature length Mr. Show movie. Its the story of Ronnie Dobbs called 'Run, Ronnie Run' You heard it here first. Those retarded gentlemen that introduced the show are part of that. Don't hold that against them"
