Great news! I can't wait to hear it! I hope that there is a song like Albuquerque, very long and very funny. I also hope that he does a either a longer polka song, or more polka songs. Grapefruit Diet, Pretty Fly (For a Rabbi), and It's All About the Pentiums were my other favorites from the last album, Running With Scissors. New Less Than Jake and Weird Al on the same day, it can't get much better for me!

Camp, UHF 2 or another Weird AL movie would be a pretty good idea! Especially since the DVD sold so well.

The last new release music album I purchased was Running With Scissors. Looks like Poodle Hat will find a home in my CD collection.

According to his website, Wierd Al is coming back to the
Colorado State Fair on Aug 16. COOL!!! Maybe I'll go see him again, he put on a great show when he played here in 1997. Even better, the ticket was only $5 and included Fair gate admission as well.

Very cool! I am especially looking forward to hearing Couch Potato, Trash Day, Angry White Boy Polka, A Complicated Song, and E-Bay. Sounds like it will be yet another great album.

I really am excited. This is one of the few CDs I'll probably buy this year, if I buy any others.

I just love the names for his polkas. The next one should rock.

Anyone else ever see him live? I saw him like 4 years ago and he was great. His shows are filled with real fans who know all the songs and its a lot of fun. It was also under a big tent (he made fun of it, saying he told his agent he wanted to play under a big tent in the middle of nowhere, and that's what he was doing) and we were in a small area, so everyone was relatively close to him.

And his songs that aren't on any of his albums (mainly one about pizza delivery parodying Celine Dion's Titanic song) were great. I really want to see him do another live performance.

I can't even remember the last time I bought a Weird Al album - Dare To Be Stupid, maybe?

What's Running With Scissors like? Would you guys reccommend it?

BTW - thanks for the Couch Potato link - that song is great! Better than the original! Posted Image

Running With Scissors is a great album too. It has really great parodies. Some of the best ones are "Saga Begins" (A song about Star Wars that is a parody of "American Pie" by Don McLean.), Pretty Fly For A Rabbi (A parody of Pretty Fly For A White Guy by The Offspring., It's All About The Pentiums (Parody of Puff Daddy's [Or whatever the hell his name is this week! Posted Image] It's All About The Benjamins), and Grapefruit Diet (Parody of Zoot Scoot Riot by Cherry Poppin' Daddies).

In my opinion, the CD is worth getting just for the Polka and the 11 minute epic closing song, Albuquerque.

Go ahead and get it.

I'm looking forward to hearing the 9 minute Genius In France, which is a tribute to Frank Zappa. Dweezil Zappa plays guitar on it. Being that Dweezil is one of my favorite guitar players, I guess I'm gonna have to finally buy a Weird Al CD.

I saw him on the "Running With Sissors" tour. Great show. Basically did costume changes between most songs, with video footage playing between songs. I also heard the "Pizza Delivery Song" as well. It is nice keep something like that in reserve that you can pull out live.

Probably the best album in years for him. It just all came together on that one.
