I thought you said "lawyers of ridiculousness", as opposed to "layers".

And now I have been to a Weird Al concert, and saw Cellphones performed live (and I'd forgotten that I'd even known about it being on the tour).

It is an awesome song.

I wasn't sure where to post this - but Lars Ulrich is on the cover of the December issue of Modern Drummer, and that made me laugh.

This has got to be the dumbest thing I have ever read:

From Yankovic.org:

File Sharing is a Four-Letter Word
Apparently, MTV’s new music video site doesn’t take too kindly to the mention of file sharing sites like Morpheus or Grokster or Limewire or KaZaA. Any mention of such sites immediately gets bleeped out in the video. Thus making Al’s “Don’t Download This Song” from the Straight Outta Lynwood album sounding more profane than Bob Saget and Chris Rock combined… at least within the first minute.

What the heck???
BUTTER!

Al's the one who put the loud, obnoxious bleeps in.

From today's New York Times
In an e-mail message on Sunday, Mr. Yankovic wrote that he had bleeped out the names to the file-sharing sites in his song two years ago, after MTV “told me that they would refuse to air my video” otherwise. “Instead of subtly removing or obscuring the words in the track,” he wrote, “I made the creative decision to bleep them out as obnoxiously as possible, so that there would be no mistake I was being censored.”
This means something. This is important.

Well, let's hear it for being obnoxious!
4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

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

So awesome!
