I have to say I'm super impressed with Weird Al's new launch of his album. I particularly liked this interview with him. He's right on the money with his comments about the changes from MTV to YouTube.

From the article:
Well, MTV is a completely different animal now, obviously. Back when I was first starting out in the 80s, people watched it for hours on end, and they would memorize every tiny detail of every music video. When I came along and I just tweaked those little video moments, people understood and got the humor immediately. Nowadays, MTV is more of a reality show channel, and I'm not really focused on that, and they're certainly not focused on me. So the internet is the new MTV, at least as far as I'm concerned.
