All three of those are brilliant. I think I see Patton Oswalt in "Foil." Gotta make a screencap of Al in the tinfoil hat! :lol:

Weird Al Yankovic Kicks Off Week Of Videos With 'Happy' Parody

July 14, 2014, 5:14 PM ET

Weird Al is back.

Al Yankovic, famous for his parodies of hit songs, is coming out with a new album, "Mandatory Fun," and to promote it, he's releasing eight videos in eight days.

His first, "Tacky," set to Pharrell's "Happy," is making the rounds today, and features appearances by celebrities including Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal and Jack Black.

The album has other songs including, "Handy," ("Fancy" by Iggy Azalea, perhaps?) and "Word Crimes," believed to be set to "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke.

“It’s ironic. When I first started out, nobody wanted to sign me to a record deal,” Yankovic told the New York Post. "They said, ‘That’s not going to be around for very long.’"

As for "Tacky," Pharrell told Billboard magazine that he "approved" the spoof song before it came to fruition.

"He wrote me a letter and I was like, 'Aww, what?!'" he said. "Yeah!"

Yankovic just feels lucky to be able to continue doing what he does best.

"With every album I put out it feels like it reaches a new generation," he said. "Kids will say, ‘Hey Dad, have you heard of this Weird Al guy? He’s really funny.'"

Very good! The only thing I ever wonder is whether I'll be up on the latest hits enough to recognize the song he's sending up, LOL. Usually I do b/c I listen to radio stations that have a "mix" of classic and current rock and pop, but every now and then he stumps me. Thank goodness for YouTube then! :grin:

We just killed a huge black spider which had built a web in the corner of our living room sometime during the day. I was just settling on the loveseat to watch some TV when I chanced to look up -- and there it was, hanging way up there at the top of the vaulted ceiling where you have to set up the stepladder to get at it with the Raid.

I actually heard myself say to DH, "Drench him good so he'll die fast!" LOL, can't believe how bloodthirsty I was, but I know I'm allergic to some spider bites -- just don't know which ones. So I can't have them around.

This song is dedicated to any 8-legged prospective visitors to our domain:

I'm crazy about the music in the final scene of "Gilda." (Starts at 1:52 on the slider... gets interrupted by a shooting... then pics up again as the scene closes. Note the switch from minor to major key, once their "problem" gets solved.) Also, Rita & Glenn never looked prettier!

"Isn't it wonderul?-- nobody has to apologize! Because... we were both
such stinkers, weren't we? Isn't it wonderful?"
:grin:
