Don't miss Weird Al's current album

Weird Al Yankovic

I got Weird Al's Straight Outta Lynwood for my birthday.

It's awesome. Highlights include: “Trapped in the Drive-thru”, his parody of R. Kelly's unintentional hip-hopera self-parody “Trapped in the Closet”; "Do I Creep You Out?", based on American Idol Taylor Hicks's hit “Do I Make You Proud?”; and, of course, “White & Nerdy,” the parody of Chamillionaire's Ridin'. It's become the favorite “driving-around” CD for the family.

Also, I see Al did a parody of James Blunt's monster hit “You're Beautiful” that couldn't get permission to be on the album -- you can download it here.

Weird Al's site is here.

I shot the picture at right with my iSight camera off a TV screen, and uploaded it with the new FlickrBooth tool, a plug-in for PhotoBooth.
