    I enjoyed his stuff back in the day but have not heard much from him in the last few years.

    He has a new CD coming out and has been releasing free videos the last few days...so far I like a couple of them...





    Liked the two above...not really digging the one below...

    Party In The CIA not bad either. Not sure if it's part of the new album.

    Weird Al doesn't get enough respect. The guy is good at what he does. Pop music isn't my bag, baby. More punk rock type guy.

    If you are familiar with the original source material it helps. Sadly I am familiar with what the three parodies I have heard so far:

    I have a 10 year old. Of course I've heard "Happy". I have to say, Pharrell Williams song is very catchy. I can understand why it was so popular. Weird Al does a great job IMO with his version "Tacky", the video especially sells the song with all the guests in it.
    I read about a song called "Fancy" that's video was taken from the movie Clueless so I watched it. Wish I hadn't, the song got stuck in my head for a good week and a half. Always happens with songs I don't like. Al's "Handy" is funny, better than the original.

    After hearing about the controversial "Blurred Lines" video with women naked in it, I had to go check it out. You know, for educational purposes. I have to say Al has another song with "Word Crimes" to rival some of his best work ever.

    Yeah. The second half of the video takes an amusing turn.

    He's probably had his best stuff the last 10-15 years.






    His latest album just continues that trend. I like his earlier stuff too. But he has only gotten better over the years.

    The guy above just does not understand the internet and using it to advertise your upcoming album while not making money for the videos. Al tries to explain it to no avail.

    NOW maybe he should go back on the show and say...this is why I did it for free...

    He gets his first #1 album on the billboard charts and in order to do that he is having great sales on his new album.

    Say what you want about the guy, but he's very intelligent. He hadn't aged in 20 years since he got rid of the mustache and glasses.

    Anyone else see his movie UHF? It's great.

    Varney is a financial guy. He just wanted him to explain to the viewers how and why he did it this way to make his money.
