          Weird Al kicks ass!!!! I caught a couple episodes of Al t.v. on VH1 a couple years ago and it showed many older videos. My favorite was "fat".
          I still have my record of "FAT". "Stuck in the closet with Vanna White" and "I think I"m a clone now" are my favorite.

            Amish Paradise, Gump, The night Santa went Crazy, Remember Larry, and The white stuff are some of the best songs. Heck almost all of weird al's songs are awesome!!! :P

                His best work is definately Nature Trail to Hell.....and SLime Creatures From Outer Space.

                When I die, I told my wife my Epitaph should be "You Can Be A Coffee Acheiver, You Can Sit Around The House And Watch Leave-It To Beaver, The Future's up to YOU, so whatchu Gonna DO!?
                DARE TO BE STUPID!
                DARE TO BE STUPID!
                "

                Of course by then, hopefully (grin), I'll just have the LCD screen built into my gravestone to just show the video when you go there to pay respects

                Dont laugh, they already make those kinds of gravestones.

                  very funny! my fav is "amish paradise", as well as "dare to be stupid", "you make me...", "eat it", and so many others! i've memorized a whole bunch of those, and i'll type up the lyrics to some if anybody wants me to... :lol:

                    Eat it is great I always get a good laugh out of it.
                    Dot: Don't look down. You might fall and hit your head and die and your brains would leak out alllllll over.

                          What do you mean "clean'...you mean cuz he doesn't swear???

                          He'd lose all his goofy charm if he started dropping f-bombs........

                              Weird Al is greatness! My sister and her friend saw him in concert and met him like back in 96. They said he was really cool. At the time we lived in Lancaster PA and my sister said that Weird Al was like "this is where I got the idea for Amish Paradise" Not sure if he meant it but at the time it was pretty cool.

                                If you wait around long enough he'll usually come out and sign autographs and stuff, but sometimes you gotta wait a WHILE........

                                I've been front row at a few of his shows and they're always entertaining.

                                What was funny once was that at a local show they had an opening act, and that opening act played some fairly BAWDY tunes that had alot of the parents running with their kids for the door :)

                                Then Al came out and did some shows..and then proceeded to tell us all how great it was to be back in..."groan....New Britain Connecticut...at the beautiful club right next door to the...uhh....Strip Club". Which was true :D

                                He cracked us all up..."yeah...lovely town you have here!" :D

                                    While Al certainly does a great job, some of the stuff on his latest albums lack some of the charm his earlier works had. I think maybe its because you can only hear SO many songs making fun of TV or Food that you start to get that 'old familiar feeling'.

                                    I first heard "My Balogna" on an April Fools night radio show in like 82, before Doctor Demento was on the air in my area.......the next day at the bus stop all of us were like "DID YOU HEAR THAT BOLOGNA SONG!?HAHAHAHAA".

                                    Part of Al's magic were his original songs from the early albums...today the original songs feel kind of stale and generic. Mellow when I'm Dead, Dog Eat Dog (not a true spoof tho imitating Talking Heads), and Nature Trail To Hell...Slime Creatures From Outer Space.......I can't really tell you any originals that struck me off the past XX number of albums tho.

                                        Back when Al sported the big glasses, hawaiian shirt and checkerboard vans........the Al I remember and love :)

                                        Today he kinda looks a little too much like Howard Stern or Dee Snyder :)

                                        Things that made this video great: All the LITTLE TOUCHES that are lost on ANYONE who isn't really familiar with the original Beat-It video.....tons of them, its like watching an AIRPLANE movie..each time you see it, you spot something new.

                                        The way the dancers run away in the beginning making those crazy "Curley" sounds... "WooOOowWOoWooWoooo" :D That was always my favorite...it was like..Serious up until that point....then you see that and know you're like "WTF? This isn't Beat It!?" :D

                                        Als earlier video works are all loaded with those little sight-gags, today they're a bit more on the straight-and-narrow side, but they still hold up well. All About The Pentium's is hysterical, with all the geeky nerds in the audience where you'd normally see a bevvy of scantily clad teenage girls.........

                                        The picture of Doctor Demento is always a nice touch :)
