Yeah, at least Blaze seemed to have a sense of humor about it all.

He thinks he's Frank Zappa. He's not.

This guy on Myspace is after cheap publicity and money. And by the way, what is he doing with Al’s music on his page?

He just signed in on myspace for telling that? Well, I believe Tom will be his only friend (ok, everyone who signs up on myspace will get him as afriend, so thats the reason Toms there.. :rolleyes: ). I also think this profile does not exist very long... |)

This is very dubious.....

With a name like "Alfred Ripped my Flesh," how would you know? This song sound nothing like Buy Me a Condo, except that it's in a reggae tune and is about condos. I can't imagine this guy taking this seriously. Also, if this really was true, why wait 24 years?

It actually sounds more like he's been pestering Al and his peeps all along, and he's only now going public with his little obsession.
"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

It's HIGHLY unlikely that Al could even have heard the song, since Mr. Ripped My Face admits that Dr. D. mailed his tape back to him with a "thanks but no thanks" letter. What are the chances that Al would choose to rip off a song that Dr. D didn't even want to play on the radio?

I think what Dumb N00b was referring to was how the guy claimed he recorded many tracks and spent a lot of time on his song. Frank Zappa was real creative like that, doing layering and stuff. It's an insult to Frank that this guy is saying this sad song of his is anything even close to as good.
4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

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

So awesome!

I'm just saying that even if his story were true, he'd still be wasting his time. But your right, it's not like Al spent all his time hanging out with Barry listening to bad tapes people sent in.

I remember once when I was little I was listening to this song in the car with my babysitter. When the line "Used to live in Jamaica, but I don't live dere no more" came up she turned to me and said, "I didn't know that Al used to live in Jamaica." She was nice and a little smart, but she said and believed some really weird, stupid stuff.
