I started this topic to get the "drooling over Al" conversation out from under "Forum Problems." Drooling over Al is not a problem. It's our part in an artistic collaboration. Songs like "Germs," "Like A Surgeon," "Pentiums" and "One More Minute" are really a sort of duet, in call-and-response form. There's Al, writhing and slithering and prancing around the stage, and then there's us, the ladies of the audience. Our part consists of sighing, slavering, screaming, and, if we want to do a really thorough job of it, fainting. We're just doing our best to help him send up that whole sex symbol thing, and we don't (usually) forget that he's doing it all for comedic purposes.

Al is attractive, of course, and I'm actually more comfortable with a good-looking guy doing that kind of spoof; I don't really like put-down humor even when the comic is putting himself down. Too much self-deprecation makes me squirm, and not in a good way.

I wonder sometimes whether Al was a little startled when he first realized that, having set out to spoof sexy music acts, he had become one of them himself. He's certainly never shown any sign, so far as I can see, of considering himself God's gift to women. Far from it; he's gleefully lampooned that attitude ever since his career began.

Yes, and if you wanna see any posts from 4.0, they're in the archives.

Before you ask how that happened, I'll just say he added me without any prompting. It was a great surprise, and it's been an honor to be there almost ever since Al got his myspace 2 years ago.

Hey, if you haven't seen this video, check it out!!

I end up screaming every time Al's name is announced... and then during the in-the-video parts... so I have to make sure no one is home before watching it. xDD
