The Flaming Lips' Christmas On Mars Finally (Finally!!!!) Arriving

We've been waiting for this one for years. YEARS, people. The Flaming Lips have been talking about their feature film Christmas On Mars forever, and it's always just out of reach. First there was mention in interviews, then there was the trailer, and finally the tour of the set in Wayne's backyward in The Fearless Freaks. That's what happens when you decide to make a sci-fi epic in the backyard of your Oklahoma house, we suppose.

Well news has just come down the pike that the band is releasing the DVD on November 11th! That's right kids: you can mark your calendars and all that jazz. The DVD also comes with a soundtrack to the film, so you can your psychedelic on with sonics or visuals, your call. Sadly (and here's the only bad news) the scheduled screening events (which are "across the country"), include no dates in California. Is this an oversight? A maximum diss? Regardless, it bums us out. To the max, man...
