So "Weird Al" is back doing what he does, either hilarious or ridiculous depending on your viewpoint. Anyway, he just released a new album, and the videos are being released one per day. A couple of these are pretty awesome (at least to this dork).

Word Crimes. Hilarious. Foil was alright too, but the first one takes the cake for me.

My son and I have been to see Weird Al 3 times. It's a great show, we were bummed when we found out he was taking this year off from touring.

Say what you will about Weird Al, he's freaking gifted at what he does. Word crimes was amazing and educational all at the same time.

Tacky and Word Crimes were awesome. Haven't seen the third one yet.

Still throw in Bad Hair Day every once in a while. He's always been fantastic and even though his stuff is goofy at times, I can certainly appreciate the time, effort and intelligence it takes to do what he does.

"Word Crimes" is a level of artistry not achieved since "Fat".

It is great to see Weird Al getting some much deserved love. There is a really good article about his potential future and possibly ditching albums for releasing singles as they are ready.

Loved him as a kid! Amish Paradise is still one of the funniest things of all time.

I liked the word crimes video. We blog weekly at my firm and I just finished writing about "crutch" words and how most folks have such limited vocabularies that they fall victim to over using a word or phrase repeatedly to end a point or begin a new one.

That's the best stuff I've seen from him in a while. Could be time to fire up the VCR and watch UHF again.

Love the cameos. The Reno 911 guys was cool.
I'm going to make my kid watch Word Crimes on a loop.

See, I think of them as The State guys, not the Reno 911 guys.
