Weird Al is the Greatest

And I don't mean in some culturally ironic sense like "Mr. T is the greatest", I mean Weird Al really is great. He manages to be culturally relevant, funny, quirky and yet individual all at the same time. And his videos are just dead funny, like this one below "White and Nerdy.":


Weird Al has this incredible talent for sticking his head up above the musical backwater every few years and popping out some hilarious song/video. I think the man has been doing this for close to 30 years now, but he just doesn't quit.

If you want to hear a little more about Weird Al and what he likes to listen to, check out the All Songs Considered show he hosts (just scroll down a little.) I recommend it.

The best part is when he slips the guy money on the street for the Star Wars Holiday Special.

And Seth Green with the action figures. Beautiful inside joke.
I heard an interview with Al way back where he was asked how he liked his 'comeback' and he commented that he didn't have a comeback, he just didn't put out an album for a little longer that usual.

He's a very smart guy. I don't think most people understand how smart he is, or how much effort he puts into it.
