This will be the designated topic for
SPOILER
"Skipper Dan"

when it's released next week. Let's hope it's more like "Craigslist" than WYL!

OK, so apparantly this is up, and legally avaiable for hearing and the video for viewing, so I guess it's time to open the topic.


Unfortunatly, the mod on duty is up to his uvula in personal business at the moment, and I have no fraggin' clue what's happening, so enlighten me :P
in a complicated song does it look like al has no head

I don't think it's much like anything Al has ever done. I like it a lot.
"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

Worth repeating since the spoiler thread is locked now.

OK I LOVE THIS

There's no worse fate for an actor, huh? NONE of this humor was lost on me AT ALL!

About the missing lyric above


Annie Liebowitz would shoot me for Rolling Stone



and thanks to Kristine for the quick Skipper Dan intro. Helped me get more of Al's jokes.

My favorite part of the video

When the tragedy/comedy masks morph into jungle shields -- it sums up the entire concept behind the whole thing so succinctly.

After repeated listenings ...

Skipper Dan should definitely hook up with Airline Amy.

Easily my favorite of the ILs so far... so catchy. :D
This means something. This is important.

This song will get many repeat plays for me. Very nice and extremely enjoyable, Al and the band!

As Ale said it is MOST LIKE "Good Old Days" If its a style parody of anything it isnt something I know/recognise.
I like it Its happy and bouncy, but the lyrics are a direct contrast.. Typical of Al. To me its like Good Old Days and Melanie much more than its like any other band.

It was awesome clicking on "New Videos" and finding this this morning I really could NOT believe my eyes and was especially shocked only one other person got there before me.

Thank You Al!

Its especially good to hear Steve Jay again... he hasn't even been on the last few singles

I love how the incautious scrobbler Dan Mackta has joined WoWAY LOL

I LOVED this song! I laughed out loud probably more than I have for either WYL or Craigslist. I thought the concept was great, and right on. Having a lot of friends who are in the theater department, I know that they all dread having to be stuck in a dead end job like this. A great, great song. Will definitely be on repeat a lot on my iTunes and definitely my favorite (so far) of the Internet Leaks.
