Well Weird Al's my favorite musician, and Wreck-Gar is my favorite Transformer, so this pretty much rocks.

Devoted TF Fans: Look for a special cameo by a classic TF couple!

Resurrected thread!!!  Yeah!

Too much nerd-coolness in one pic:


Somewhat on topic, just saw "State of Play" (starring Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck in a journalism conspiracy) and Jason Bateman has a small, funny but pivotal role in it.  Really great movie for the person who loved "Michael Clayton" (not as good, but close).

Weird Al's going to be leaking 4 of his next album's songs over the next few months. First track (Second if you count "Whatever you like") will come out on the 16th. :^)

Edit: Annnd someone already mentioned it on the OTHER Necro-bumped Al thread. Can someone merge these? :^)

I was looking for that thread but totally could not find it.  I thought I made it up.  Sorry bout that.

EDIT:  Just found it in a very obvious place.  Excuse me for being an idiot.

SPOILERS:

New song title, album art revealed (plus 30 second sample!) at Amazon

Awesome... but.... I'm confused.  Heading over to WOWAY right now.  Btw, I just found out that Tony Hawk was in the "Smells Like Nirvana" video (near Dick Van Patten).  Apparently Weird Al didn't know either:

"I doubt Al even knows/cares that I was in that video, but I'm sitting in the bleachers during the crowd sweep. I was near Dick van Patten." --Tony Hawk

"No way! YOU were in my Smells Like Nirvana video?? How did I not know that? Awesome!" --Weird Al

I saw Weird Al live in the 90's. It's great that some things never change. 'Craigslist' is more of that brilliance we have all come to love through the bast 25 years. Maybe even longer!

I am more than happy to hear him do something non-hip-hop based!!!  I enjoyed the song.  I don't think it was his best ever, but I definitely enjoyed it.

Can't wait for the next 3 before the album comes out.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

Dig this one a lot. It's a little bit funnier each time I hear it.

So I don't know my Doors. Was this a style parody, or is it based on a specific song?

I'm also happy to see him moving away from rap, but for some reason, I just can't seem to like this one all that much . . . or the last one for that matter. Maybe it's because both have been parodies of artists I'm apathetic towards. Don't like them, really, but don't hate them enough to be overjoyed at their lampooning.

I'm posting this partially to answer your question and partially because I think you guys might want to read this myspace blog entry from Al:

Yeah, apparently Al can use Ustream without destroying the internet! What's his secret?

He mentions RiffTrax veeeeeeeeeeery briefly, but I don't remember the time and I don't feel like checking.
