Thanks for the update!

My boss has a beautiful condo on the beach in Maui that he lends out to people, and I've always meant to get some of Jim's CDs to leave there the listening pleasure of those who stay at the condo.

Now he has even more CDs to take along! :Y

I got my copy last week. It's well done. My favorite song is "Santeria." :)

Jim has been nominated in the Just Plain FOlks Music Awards (though I don't think for this album). These awards consider more music than the Grammys so it really is an honor to be nominated. You can go here:

and here

and search for Kimo to find his nominations.

Congrats Jim!

WTG, Jim! It is a gorgeous album and richly deserves its nominations.
"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

That's great! Congratulations, Jim! I have Slack Key West as well, and it is a wonderful cd. You deserve this.
4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

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

So awesome!
