Weird Al Proves Just How Funny He Is
In anticipation of the release of the new Straight Outta Lynwood album on September 26th, Weird Al has given us a sneak peak by releasing one of his songs over the Internet. The song, you might ask? Don't Download This Song.
This is really giving you a lot of bang for you CD buck. Not only is the album a scant $14, but you get a second bonus disk with music videos, interviews, and other cool bonus materials. See? Al gets it. He gets that we don't like paying $20 for a CD with a bunch of meaningless filler. If this album was released by a sellout, it'd cost $30 and be branded as some kind of "Collector's Edidtion". Al's too cool for that.
Hat's off to the guy for stickin' it to the man.
I met him. Did I tell you that already? He was doing a signing at a mall in London when I was 20. The line to see him wound all through the entire mall by the time I got there, which was right before he was supposed to come out, so I went right up to the signing table they had for him and made myself first in line. No one even said anything about it. And then Al and I had a lovely visit.
Also, one time I had a sex dream about him. I’ve felt dirty ever since.
Ever notice how almost all of your posts can be categorized into “geek”?
I’m just sayin’…
I don’t see how that’s relevant.
