Who Can It Be Now
Make the Rock Hall Weird Update Blog
The album's first single, the original "Don't Download This Song," is currently available in a variety of places, as is the video by animation legend and Oscar nominee Bill Plympton. You can listen to the song at Al's own MySpace page, you can request to hear it on The Dr. Demento Show, or you can go to the song's web site.
Speaking of animated videos of original songs, a brand new one will premiere on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim's Robot Chicken on September 24 at 11:30PM (EST), so set your VCRs, DVRs, TiVos, BitTorrents, Kinescopes, bug-catching nets, or whatever else you may use to record television programs. And of course, these animated videos will be included on the DVD portion of Straight Outta Lynwood.
Speaking of Straight Outta Lynwood, on September 26 Al will be appearing at the Virgin Megastore in Hollywood (6801 Hollywood Blvd., Suite 105) at 7PM (PST) for an album signing. We have an urgent plea for any Southern Californian fans who are planning to attend: If you would like to represent the campaign as a petition volunteer, please contact us as soon as possible!!!
Finally, with a new album release comes the obligatory media appearances, so if you would like to see Al on your favorite talk show to promote the album, use the following links to request to see him:
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
The Ellen DeGeneres Show
Jimmy Kimmel Live
The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson
Late Show with David Letterman
So please help out and do what you can to help make SOL a hit. We don't want Al to be another kind of SOL.
