I want my Al-TV!

I also still can't grok a Lasik'd or Bionic Vision Al. At least trim the dew -- be the new you! This hybrid .. it itches...

"I'm sorry, I can't do this with a straight face."

Love Weird Al.

To Eminem:

"The whole gender of rap? Are you sure you don't mean genre?

I mean, I don't want to second guess you or anything. You are the oscar-winning, critically-acclaimed wordsmith and all..."

Weird Al is awesome.

Some great, awkward moments in there. (Though I almost felt a little sorry for Ms. Laveeegne.)

His Al Music specials on MuchMusic were pure gold. Thanks for the links.

Ha! His interview with Avril Lavigne proves that the American ear is capable of correctly hearing the Canadian "about" and "house". (He imitated them completely accurately, and not as 'aboot' and 'hoose').

This is important to me, somehow.

Al used to tour Canada, even the small places, so much that growing up I thought he was Canadian. He seemed to always be on Much Music (AL TV was all day long) and probably spent more time in the country than most other musicians.
