a new cover for jesus christ superstar.

i feel very lucky to have some of the best friends in the world. two of them did not only send me this lovely christmas card via post, they also visited me at home the very same day.

since it was the last weekend before christmas we decided to watch “jesus christ superstar” (it’s a musical, but you have to watch the only good movie version from 1973). and we had a great time drinking wine and eating hosts crisps…

i was happy to share this brilliant piece of movie & cultural history with anne & david. but afterwards we realized that the cover of the dvd does not work at all selling the movie…

you wouldn’t watch it and miss out on some great music and brilliant characters in an interesting setting. and in case you’re looking for a christian movie you wouldn’t necessarily approve of this depiction of the saga either. jesus seems rather clueless and the true protagonist is judas, but he doesn’t even appear on the back cover. so, which target group are you doing a favor here?

to cut the long story short, we drew a new cover that does the movie better justice.

so far this cover is only available in my personal dvd collection. but if you like, you can download the cover in high resolution via this link (file size: 15 MB), print and cut it out and use it for your own dvd.

you’re welcome.
