...and Weird Al tops himself again!

A few weeks ago, there was a story (This Story) about Lady Gaga not letting Weird Al release a parody of Born This Way. A couple hours later and Gaga claims it never happened and Weird Al can put out the song. Now, two months later... Weird Al has a new album out.

The Gaga song is pretty good, the video is fantastic. This whole album is fantastic. Personally, from his last album, I thought Trapped In The Drive-Thru was the single best song he'd ever done; well, now he's even topped that. Craigslist is the song that's killing me. It's a Doors parody (well... in the style of The Doors anyway...) with Al reading Craigslist postings. It's perfect!

I think CNR is pretty awesome. That's an original song in the style of the White Stripes that makes Charles Nelson Riley into a Chuck Norris / Bill Brasky type figure.

Me and the kiddos are kind of partial to "Another Tattoo" which is a parody of "Nothin' on You" by B.o.B. f/Bruno Mars. "nu, nu, nu, nuthua tatto babe, nu nutha tattoo" is QUITE the earworm, and has been quoted on and off since we got it a few days ago.

Chuck Klosterman did a pretty good podcast w/him the other day where he talked a lot about the Lady Gaga situation as well as how awesome his backup band is and how he's fairly confident they can parody (or just do) any song no matter the style or complexity.

Geez was that podcast ever awkward. I like Klosterman's writing and his interactions with Simmons, but there was no semblance of flow in that interview. Maybe Chuck was trying to fit a lot of stuff into what seemed like a limited time with Weird Al, but it was awfully rough to just immediately jump from the Lady Gaga story to "So, talk about your parents' death."

The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball

"Party In The CIA" might be my favorite Al parody of the last decade. Hope it's the next single if there's going to be another one. The polka medley is pretty great on this album, too- has a nice flow to it.

I just wish half the album hadn't already been released 2 years ago on the "Internet Leaks" EP.

Man, Fridays have been bad this month. Gil had one of the morning matinee slots at Coachella '99 on one of the smaller stages.
