As much as I love Weird Al's parodies, I've laughed more at his original stuff.  "Trigger Happy" is still the song that I laughed at the most.

I know you weren't necessarily saying this was his early work, but I just remembered to look it up, and can you believe that song was on his 7th album, from 1992? Actually, I think I read your comment wrong the first time, and I have to agree. I think his original sounds are his best work. The lead singer of Devo said that Al basically wrote the perfect Devo song in Dare To Be Stupid, for example.

Trigger Happy is a great song, no question.

That's why I don't replay that one!  Stupid bikes.

Sorry - every so often, we try removing the new member approval process, but the board inevitably gets flooded with spam when we do. :(

I'm gonna go full nerd and say that Weird Al is better now than he was in his really early stuff.  I've got his entire catalog, huge fan, going to see him in concert (finally) in May.  But it can be hard to go back to his early work and hear the fart noises and such.  Fart noises that, I'll admit, I probably loved when I first discovered him at age 13 or so.  Watching old interviews and such with him feel like he feels obligated to be wacky all the time, too.

I watched Monsters University again last night.  It's been a while, but I still really like it and its message that not everybody needs to be the quarterback.  We all have strengths, and we should recognize them and use them instead of trying to be something we're not.

I actually love the book of Princess Bride more than the movie... and I really like that movie.

I've been re-listening to the LotR BBC radio series recently, and it's also great.  Definitely longer than the movies, but still probably not as long as the books.

Me too.  Think I'll need to pick up my copy of Good Omens to read again. :(

He had been sick for a long time, though, and was understandably freaked out about the ongoing effects of Alzheimers.  That makes me feel a little better about him not having to suffer through that any more.

That's the one I got as well - definitely recommended.  There are a bunch of other extras, too, including (I think) four relevant episodes of Batman: The Animated Series and one of The Brave and the Bold.

I saw the animated adaptation of The Dark Knight Returns today (both parts), and it's pretty solid.  It's based on a great source, so all they had to do was not screw it up, and they didn't.  The art style matches the comic nicely, and some of the stuff is a darn-near perfect match for it.  I like the girl who did the voice of Carrie in real acting, but some of her lines fell a little flat here.  The guys who did Batman and Gordon were great, and Michael Emerson's Joker was a surprisingly nice fit for the way the character's written.  (He does a bit of a Paul Lynde impersonation.) 

There was an interesting feature about Bob Kane (one of the creators of Batman) as well.  It's pretty balanced, with footage of him and interviews that don't necessarily paint him in the best light, but then also some stuff with those same people explaining why it's easy to get a picture of him as a worse dude than he really was.  (Mark Hamill is in it quite a bit, as well as people like Bruce Timm and Stan Lee.  Pretty cool.)  And also, they don't forget to talk about the other people involved, like Bill Finger.  Didn't have time to finish it yet, but looking forward to doing so.

What was the fix?

Thank you for asking - I hate when I search for something that is going wrong and find a post where someone else had the issue and their last reply is "nevermind I fixed it."

I finally saw Big Hero 6.  I liked it.

Haha - yeah, their categories are kind of messed up.

On the subject of Airplane!, I learned recently that there are a bunch of scenes where it is a shot-for-shot remake of a movie called Zero Hour.  Here's a video showing at least some of those scenes:

My wife and I watched John Dies At The End tonight.  I think we both liked it, but man, it's bizarre.
