I ended up buying the Alpocalypse Blu-Ray. I don't have a Blu-Ray player though. And I have no intention of buying one any time soon. And even if I did, the Blu-Ray's probably region locked anyway. I just have this intense compulsion to buy everything with Al's name on it :p

Volcano's owned by Sony, and according to Wikipedia, they're been releasing most of their Blu-Rays region free.

But then Wikipedia also says that the tallest Christmas tree in the world is three inches high. So, y'know. Take that as you may.

I don't know about Alpocalypse HD, but the Alpocalypse Live Blu-Ray is not region-free

The Alpocalypse Live BD was released by Comedy Central, which is owned by Viacom, a totally different media empire.

If anyone has this, I'm curious as to what the menus look like. Are the exactly the same as the Alpocalypse Deluxe DVD or are they different?

Got a BluRay player recently. Are there any good special features on this, or is it just the videos?

This is a very bare bones release. It has the three extra videos from SOL, but that's it. The closest thing to a bonus feature is the alpocalyptic sound effects when the menu is on.

I happened to be in Barnes & Noble today and there was a 40% off all Blu-Rays sale and this was in stock, so I ended up getting it for about $11. Not a bad price. It's pretty enjoyable to "watch" the album rather than just listen to it. Having a copy of Perform This Way, Craigslist, Polka Face, and White & Nerdy in full HD is worth the price alone.

I wish this had the album mixed in 5.1. If you're gonna put your album on blu-ray, why not? Especially given that he made a 5.1 mix of his previous album.
