I went out and bought Mandatory Fun last night.

Another great album.

 

I still have to see the last parody music video, "Inactive"

"Word Crimes" is the perfect up-yours to the Internet's two-decade-long assault on the English language. He was in rare form with that one.


Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I will not support anything your company produces until then.

For those that missed the announcement, Mandatory Fun made the number one slot on the Billboard 100 this week, first time a comedy album has done that since 1963.

I'm finally getting around to listening to his original songs off the CD, and I really like "First World Problems"

Favorite lyric is not making a design in the foam of his banana latte.

Well, Weird Al playing the Superbowl seems highly unlikely now since the NFL wants musicians to pay them in order to perform.

My favorite song is "Inactive" because I really like the original song and the lyrics are quite funny.

 

My favorite line is "And your 2,000,000 loser friends all have my email address because you never figured out how to do BCC:"  This one of my biggest pet peeves for any time there is a group of unrelated people getting email like a baseball team or band group.  Use BCC: you moran :)

My minor complaint about "Inactive" is that it seems like a retread of "Couch Potato."

"Inactive" does feel like a retread. But I still like it.
