It was fantastic! Easily my favorite episode of the season. The songs were all great and he did an excellent job with his voice acting. Cheese Sandwich was a really fun character and it was a nice touch to have him have glasses when he was shown as a younger version of himself.

Was that the song that made you a fan?

I'm trying to think no what was the first thing I ever heard from Al and how I was introduced to him. I know I was in middle school, probably in the 6th grade when a friend let me listen to some of his songs. I think it might have been Smells like Nirvana since that was right around the time when I was discovering that music. I know Amish Paradise was also an early favorite of mine.

As is still somewhat the case I ended up finding music by finding out what Al was making fun of. Laugh if you wish but I was not really familiar with M. Jackson when I was a kid. It was only after I heard songs like Eat it and Fat that I wanted to hear the original stuff.

Yeah, I heard it in a montage on You Tube back in the day.

This came up in a discussion with a friend. When Weird Al played tambourine in one of Hanson's music videos.

Here is the Rolling Stone article about it.

Can't wait for it to come out. My only problem is that I really haven't been listening to anything current so some of what he will parody will be lost on me. I'm sure there will be plenty there for me to enjoy though.

There is an online petition that is asking the NFL to have Weird Al do the halftime show. I've already put my name on the list. Here is one of the sites that has the story.

Let's hope the NFL listens!
