Various versions and incarnations of APPLESEED: EX MACHINA go on sale on home video in the US today. I'm featured pretty heavily in the extras included on the Blu-ray and the two-disc set talking trash about a whole lot of stuff in the basement of Other Cinema. Also among the mighty heroes who come catapulting out of your television set are Carl Horn (who I appreciate taking the the effort to put copies of Ikegami-Kokie's Starving Man in the frame) and brand spanking new OTAKU USA contributor Gilles Poitras.
What I remember about the filming: weird audio problems caused by the unseen-but-real Mole Men who live under 992 Valencia street. The cameraman saying that the basement looked like the inside of a U2 spy plane. Col. Baldwin eating a bento.
