I don't think this one will get too much MTV time.   :P

Why doesn't the link work?

Haha, that song rules. MC Lars made something similar(called Download this Song, with old Iggy Pop samplings :-\) but this is so much better. Video rocks as well.

I preordered the CD, as well as his entire back libary, besides the ones I have (Poodle Hat and Bad Hair Day). It is pretty expensive since I have to import but it is defiantly worth it.

The White and Nerdy video was hysterical. I have to say... I pretty much believe the song might actually be better than All About The Pentiums. Its definetly on the same quality level.

And it bears the truth. For instance... my fave MC ... is in fact... MC Escher.

Lynwood might be one of Al's best albums yet.

Of course, Al can only improve to even think, nay imagine, that he could be, dare I say, bad, is unthinkable. The universe would simply implode.

  Premiere cancelled

I'm very sorry to say that the AOL "First View" Premiere of the "White & Nerdy" video has been cancelled.

Apparently, the video has already leaked online, and AOL doesn't feel comfortable doing a "World Premiere" promotion for a video that a number of people have seen already. (I can understand songs leaking, but a video? How'd THAT happen?)

Anyway, it's really a bummer... it would have been great promotion for the album... but hey, life goes on.

So...

I'll be uploading the video to this page shortly. Tell your friends!

Apperantly, it got on youtube twenty hours before AOL.  Old news, but funny.

After Tuesday I'm turning this thread into the Official Weird Al Yankovic Thread, because technically that's what it already is.   ;)

Done.

Quote
THE ALBUM IS IN STORES!

I don't know if you've heard anything about this or not, but... well, I've got a new album, and it's out as of today.

I'm in the middle of my cross-country promotional blitz - getting a little tired of talking about myself, but still having a great time. The buzz on the new album is huge - the record label seems very excited.

Say, if I could ask a favor... if you are at all inclined to pick up a copy (or 12) of "Straight Outta Lynwood," could you please try to do it this week if at all possible? People in the industry really pay a lot of attention to first week sales figures and chart position - it means a lot to them. (Okay, okay, it means a lot to me too.)

And to all the spoiler-free people who have somehow been able to resist the temptation to download and listen to the album early... I congratulate you and salute your will-power. Now that you've come this far, make sure you do it right - after all, you can only listen to a new album for the first time once. When you get home from the record store, unplug the phone. Dim the lights. Anoint yourself in the finest of oils, set out a plate of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and put the CD in your stereo. Make sure that the volume is turned up to just below the pain threshold, and that you're sitting in the sweet spot on your couch. Then press play, sit back and bask in the glory and majesty that is "Straight Outta Lynwood." Listen over and over again until the songs are permanently wedged in your brain. Then and only then, you may flip the disc over to the DVD side and play all of the music videos, followed by the making-of-the-album featurette. Then you can check out the 5.1 mixes, or take full advantage of the karaoke function until the neighbors threaten to call the police.

Anyway, enjoy the new album. I really hope you like it.

Oh, by the way... just because you DEMANDED it... we will make "White & Nerdy" hoodies (as seen in the video) available to the public. They should be ready in about a week or so... I'll keep you posted.

See ya at the in-store!

Are you kidding?  I noticed that Weird Al isn't really a wiz at minesweeper.
I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

First of Straight Outta Lyndwood, is great. I was a little afriad that it might be as good as some of his other albums, but it is great.

Second, I ordered all of his CD's (except his collection CD's and the UHF soundtrack, since I have the movie) and even though it costed quite a bit to import them, they are defiantly worth it.

Top 10 Debut!

I would like to personally extend a warm hug and/or hearty handshake to the 73,000 people who purchased a copy of Straight Outta Lynwood last week. (Or maybe it was just 73 people who purchased 1,000 copies each - I guess I'll never really know for sure.) Anyway, thank you, thank you, thank you! Because of your support, the album will debut at number 10 on this week's Billboard album chart! Yes, that's right, I've got a Top 10 album - for the very first time in my life! Also, I don't have a chart number yet, but I just found out from my label that "White & Nerdy" is expected to debut in the top 30 on the Billboard hot singles chart - which would make it my highest charting single in over 22 years (since "Eat It")! Like VH-1 says, I'm having the Best Week Ever!

And speaking of VH-1, the video debuted on their Top 20 Countdown last week at number 5! Wow... you guys sure know how to stuff a ballot box, don't you? Thanks so much!

As you can imagine, my life has been pretty crazy lately. I'm going to be bouncing around the country for the next month or so, tormenting local radio and TV stations and doing the occasional in-store appearance. I also just found out that I've been asked to perform "White & Nerdy" live on the Tonight Show. That'll be fun (if I don't pass out!)

By the way, the White & Nerdy hoodies are apparently in stock now - you can get 'em at the merch page at weirdal.com. I've seen a couple samples, and they look pretty sweet!

That's pretty much all the headlines for this week. Thanks again for giving me a Top 10 album. You guys are the best.

Keep stuffing that ballot box!

I saw him play in Melbourne Friday night. Show was good except it started an hour late because there was a problem with the media player and one of the stage lights was shining on the audience blinding us during the start of the show.

Just a quick funny story, a couple of night clubs in my area have been playing white & nerdy, the thing is because of the sound systems in these places people can't hear the words really well and are taking it really seriously and trying to act like they are hard-core.

Considering you posted your question here and not in the Off Topic Topic, I think you know the true answer in your heart.

Very true. But I think I'll just get both. I should never have be forced to chose between Weird Al and well, anything.
You killed Harry Potter  >:( !!!!!
Yes. Yes I did.

Why?


Industrialists make terrible idols. Go and idolise a wastrel Rock star like normal people.

Because it's completely normal to idolize a guy who ripped of peoples' heads while they were still alive.

Yes, because a murderous rapist is a great hero.

Incidentally, I idolise Harry Shipman, The Yorkshire Ripper and Gary Glitter.

I went to a concert a while ago. 'Albuquerque' was the last song he did. That was awesome.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.
