Wedding day

The Poodle Bites It The Poodle Chews It

This last weekend, I had the unique opportunity to listen to "Weird Al" Yankovic's new album, Poodle Hat, four days prior to its release. Those of you who will admit your fondness for Al are gonna like it. At the very least, you'll like "Hardware Store" (which is funnier than all eight seasons of Home Improvement combined (not that that's an enormous feat)), and "Genius In France," a Frank Zappa sound-alike tribute to Jerry Lewis. Wild, man. Wild. It comes out tomorrow, and by the time you read this, it'll probably already be tomorrow, so be sure to run out and grab a copy or seven. I know I will.

Also in the news, I shaved my goatee off again. Why? Who knows? Who cares? I couldn't answer that first question for you, but the second answer is that I do because it makes me look twelve.
