Weird Al is great. I can't believe how much some of his songs sound just like the original. That Star Wars song is hilarious.

I'll agree with that.


He was actually on Leno last night playing tambourine with a group.


Almost 20 years ago Al came to Vancouver island. He came out to the lake near our town and stayed with his girlfriends parents. My friends parents lived next to them out the lake so they asked if they could take Al out Kneeboarding. The told him to start off the dock. They have photos of him taking off and going head first into the water. He wasn't too happy about that.

Wierd Al's band is pretty good. In his own way, he rocks!

He's a comedian, very funny. And whoever said he was lame needs to learn that, lol. UHF is a very under rated movie.

I saw UHF several times it's a funny movie and underrated. I thought that when it came out in 1989!!!!

He's done nothing funny since.

UHF is his masterpeice IMHO. It's still as good today as it was back then, which is not true of a lot of the sophmoric flicks from back then.
