      That was awesome! I love Weird Al!

      Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

            That was quite possibly the coolest thing ever. I wish I could give up my day job and become a skip.

              Haha, that was awesome. I usually don't like Weird Al too much, but that was pretty entertaining.

                I caught Weird Al's 3D show at the OC Fair over the weekend and the kids just loved it. Has Disney and Weird Al ever worked together on any projects?

                  As a long time fan of Weird Al, I gotta say this particular one is a miss for me.

                  When it started playing, I expected it to evolve into a parody of a JC skip who, with dreams of being a great movie actor and frustrated that JC is the only gig he can get, goes outrageously OG in his spiel (maybe doing his spiel as different classical movie actors). Things go from wacky to wackier, he terrifies the hell out of his crew (or screws up in some other comical Weird Al style) and gets fired for his efforts.

                  Instead I got a one-beat story of "I'm bored on the JC and feeling sorry for myself." Even the montage with the JC spiel voiceovers, which had all kinds of potential for gags, wasn't funny.

                  Sorry, Al -- this one's kinda flatline. Great premise, great setup, but doesn't go anywhere comedically.


                  "With the acquisition of Marvel and now of Lucasfilm,
                  Disney may have finally found the grail. You don't need
                  imagination or art. All you need is a brand."

                    Cool!

                    This Saturday I'm going to the Orange County Fair where apparently they have a 3D movie called "Journey Through Al's Brain" and starring Weird Al.

                    I'll let you all know what it was like!

                      To my knowledge, only once. He had a cameo in Safety Patrol, a TV movie from 1998 that premiered on The Wonderful World of Disney and was later replayed on Disney Channel.
                      I'm attempting to watch and review every Disney movie ever made in my blog called The Disney Films. You can also follow me on Twitter for news on upcoming Disney films.

                        I really enjoyed the song, but it is a commentary on some great actors that have to pay the bills.

                            Anyone know the song parodied in this video?

                            EDIT: The song was an original... nevermind!

                              That was great. I love Weird Al. But judging from the harsh MySpace comments we've got a nation full angry teens out there who can only think and write in sub-literate text-speak. And I thought Dan's life was sad.
