Mission Statement was there too, but the link went bad quickly.

Well then, I guess my prediction was half-wrong!

Lame Claim to Fame was pretty cool!

Yeah like Word Crimes it was a video with some effort behind it.

Speaking of the Word Crimes video, here's a great little article about its development.

Surprised he's taken this long to do a Pixes cover since alternative/indie rock from the early 90s is his favourite genre.

I think that was Ralph Nader in a wig, actually. Although there was a guy in the theater that kinda looked like him, if that's who you're talking about.

Yeah, the guy in the theater is who I meant. I suppose it could've been someone else, but I feel like I'd recognize those sunglasses anywhere. And Al used the "tearing me apart" clip on the previous tour, so there's precedent for Wiseau references.

Finally, the "Weird" Al porn absolutely no one asked for with the UHF XXX Parody.

I can't decide what it more disturbing: female Al or female bleeding Emo Phillips.

Looks like our old friends at Shout Factory are doing the UHF Blu-Ray! AND they're releasing that forgotten classic The Compleat Al!

All is right in the world.  8)
