It’s not actually a movie trailer, it’s the first 4 minutes (the opening scene) of Saw 4. I really can’t believe there is another Saw movie coming out. I enjoyed the first two, but the third one really bombed. But that’s just my opinion, of course.
I don’t know how long it will be before youtube pulls the video, but it is working for now.
You can call it “The Dark Side of Oz” or “The Wizard of Floyd” or “Dark Side of the Rainbow, any title will do. Mention those titles, to any Pink Floyd fan, and they will be able to tell you a little story. When you play the cd “The Dark Side of the Moon” along with “The Wizard of Oz”, there are some very interesting similarities.
Here are a few of the more interesting ones:
“Balanced on the biggest wave” as Dorthy’s balancing on the fence.
On the Run starts as Dorthy falls. Notice the theme of the music as everyone panics.
The ringing of bells is heard as Time starts and the witch enters on her bike. (This is my 2nd favorite similarity.)
During the guitar solo in Time, you will see the fortune teller’s sign. It reads Past, Present, and Future.
The song starts as Dorthy enters Oz to the sound of cash registers and money chimes. (This is my favorite similarity. It is quite amazing to hear the cash register chime as soon as you see yellow brick road. It gave me chills the first time I saw it.)
That is just a very small sampling of what you can expect to see. I won’t list out all of the similarities here. If you are interested in reading them though, a quick google search will turn up all you ever wanted to know, and then some.
The reason for this post is because I took my DVD of “The Wizard of Oz” and ripped it to my HD. After that, I ripped my cd of “Dark Side of the Moon” to my HD. I created a new language channel on the movie, and put “Dark Side of the Moon” into that channel. I got it synced up perfectly with the MGM lions 3rd roar and re-created the DVD with the new language channel.
It worked! I can now show all of my friends and relatives what I have been telling them for years. There was one problem though. I had no dvd cover or disc label to put on my new “Wizard of Floyd” compilation.
I fixed that problem by creating my own label and cover which you can see below. I have also provided a download link if you have a need for the covers. I noticed that someone else had created a compilation DVD and released it on usenet a while back. It is not the compilation I created, but after watching that version at a friends house, I can say that they are nearly identical.
The cover isn’t the greatest piece of artwork that I have ever seen, but it seemed to work in a pinch. 🙂

Â There’s good news for those of us who were dismayed at the cancellation of “Dead Like Me.” The dark comedy about the trials and tribulations of a group of grim reapers may come back to life — briefly, at least.
“Dead Like Me,” the popular Showtime television series starring Mandy Patinkin and Ellen Muth, is returning as a made-for-DVD movie. MGM told Moviehole.com that Stephen Herek (“The Mighty Ducks”) will direct the new film. There’s no word yet on who’ll be starring in the film — but hopefully they’ll revive the original cast.
The series, which makes bizarre death an art form, centers on George (Muth), a young woman killed by a toilet seat from outer space and forced to work as a grim reaper. Led by a reaper named Rube (Patinkin), she and an assortment of other eccentric characters are sent to reap the souls of the ill-fated.
I really loved this show.Â Showtime pulled it way too fast.
