Somewhere in the office there's a voodoo doll resembling Al with pushpins in it. :devil:

RCA is owned by Sony. According to the Amazon page for Mandatory Fun, Al is on RCA.

Shared from the American Bandstand twitter. Brief interview - Dick Clark talks to Al - 12/28/85
4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

"How's Problem Child doing?" - 7/12/11

So awesome!

I listened to a larger part of the audio wondering how young Al sounds until I realised it was 1985, not 2012 :lol: - American dates make no sense :wacko:

I thought the only difference was month/day/year vs day/month/year. I never knew there was a third option: year/month/day.

I think that's even screwier. :wacko: Besides, wouldn't the 85 part give away the year? :P

Also, I think we're more accustomed to what we're taught, so anything different seems wrong.

We use year/month/day, eg. 2015-01-04, but I'm fine with day/month/year too - smallest to largest or largest to smallest, it's still some sort of logical order.

I only noticed 85 when the interviewer mentioned 86 and I looked closer to a date :imstupid:
