he seemed like a won trick pony.  no way he could ever make a living at playing a character like that.

That interview was painful to watch. If all this isn't some Andy Kaufman type of stunt, the woman is completely batshiat insane.

I was certainly not expecting the final video to go up on WSJ. I guess it makes sense given the topic of the video. Still seems pretty random, though.

I wonder if Al will make videos of any of the remaining songs later on?  I kind of want to see what he'd do with My Own Eyes just to see him impersonating Dave Grohl.

This is my new mop. George, my friend, he gave me this mop. This is a pretty good mop. It's not as good as my first mop. I miss my first mop, but this is still a good mop. Sometimes you just hafta take what life gives ya, 'cause life is like a mop and sometimes life gets full of dirt and crud and bugs and hairballs and stuff... you, you, you gotta clean it out. You, you, you gotta put it in here and rinse it off and start all over again and, and sometimes, sometimes life sticks to the floor so bad you know a mop, a mop, it's not good enough, it's not good enough. You, you gotta get down there, like, with a toothbrush, you know, and you gotta, you gotta really scrub 'cause you gotta get it off. You gotta really try to get it off. But if that doesn't work, that doesn't work, you can't give up. You gotta, you gotta stand right up. You, you gotta run to a window and say, "Hey! These floors are dirty as hell, and I'm not gonna take it any more!"

The proper menu to serve with a viewing would of course be the twinkie dog, Yappy's Dog Treats, and blueberry daquiris.  With some beagle punch for the kiddies too.

Pamela Finklestein: [into a phone to Fletcher] "Broads don't belong in broadcasting"? Is that the kind of professional courtesy you teach your news department?

I watched a review of it by some bald guy on a local LA station.  He started by giving it a horrid review, then showed the talk show scene you referenced.  They cut back to him and he was laughing at it, then said he didn't remember seeing that in the film.  He almost seemed embarrassed to give it a bad review after that.

How could they *not* like it? Sure the comedy is not for everyone, but the efforts and style put into the movie itself are fan-farking-tastic. All the little details go great with the over the top stuff.

"He doesn't have the edge and confidence he needs to carry a movie like this, and his physical presence is undermined by bad posture and an indistinct speaking voice. He needs to practice throwing back his shoulders and strutting; he creates a dispirited vacuum at the center of many scenes."

Apparently Al's posture wasn't good enough for Ebert.

"The result is a very unfunny movie. I did not record a single laugh during the running time of the film, and although I admittedly saw the movie at a press screening and not on a Saturday matinee at the multiplex in the mall, I wonder how many laughs there will be when the movie does go public. It's routine, predictable, and dumb - real dumb."
