I Like The Gartel DVD, but Thanks for the Apology Eghy

"Read all the reviews, including Eghy's (old review, plus his apology review). It takes a big man to apologize, so I give Eghy cudo's for that, but he is still a sarcastic fellow, which he obviously cannot help. I enjoyed his responses though, they made me giggle. Sorry he did not like the Gartel DVD, I must be one of those minions that liked it. I am a very visual person and the images were actually a bit too intense for my taste, but unique just the same. I would not hesitate to recommend it, and most of my friends that I showed it to, liked it. There were a few Eghy's that did not like it, but that is what Art in Multi-media is all about. Eghy seems to be a nice fellow, so no hard feelings, we will just agree to disagree. I will continue to check out his reviews on other products. Eghy is very knowledgeable, just missed the mark this time around. Gartel is the "Father of Digital Media." You buy this DVD because they are Gartel Images. The millions that have enjoyed his works at Museums, and thousands that have spent alot of money buying his works, now have the ability to take them home, and enjoy them in a multi media format. That is what this DVD is about. Eghy obviously would not like Andy Warhol's works in this sort of format either, and now I at least understand why he did not like it. This is definitely not Star Wars, or Pixar, or Dreamworks, it is Gartel, on his usual cutting edge.
The Reviews Do Not Matter!

"Laurence Gartel is the Father of Digital Media. He started the whole darn thing. So if you are into art, and multi media, it is worth having if for no other reason, that you will have something from Gartel. There is no good or bad in Art, there are only points of view. Gartel has done something no one else has tried, has set the standard, which others will build and improve upon. Unless you have an open mind, and enjoy innovation, do not buy this product, you will be disappointed. This is not Star Wars, this is Gartel!"

"I can try to describe the DVD, but unless you are into multi media, and familiar with Laurence Gartel, words will not be helpful. Simply go to http://www.gartelraveparty.com and you can see some samples and hear all the songs. If you like what you see and hear, then buy it. I liked what I saw and heard, and thought it was worth the money. When someone tries something new, there will always be critics, but someone needs to start the ball rolling, and Gartel has most certainly done this."
Loved The Music with the Visuals

"I am always on the prowl for new things. The Gartel DVD was valiant effort by the "self proclaimed" Father of Digital Media. I appreciated the effort, I appreciated the art, I appreciated the surround sound, etc. However, I expected more from Gartel based on his reputation. The effort was most certainly "cutting edge" but Gartels images were dated. I have read articles about Gartel, and I have visited his website. While I realize that all great Artists must be self promoting, Gartel seems to be a bit "full of himself." The DVD is definitely worth the price, and it is a cheap way to have something from Gartel in your library, but I am afraid that the cutting edge technology parade has passed Gartel by. They put some very hip tunes to his visuals, which is most certainly a bonus, but I expected a bit more from Gartel as an Artist. I gave it a 4 for the effort, but I would call Gartel the "Grandfather of Digital Media", not the "Father." Perhaps in a future DVD he will be able to take things to a higher level, but this was a good start, at least for him."
