"Weird Al used music videos brilliantly. His parodies of both Michael Jackson and Madonna were even more memorable than the original videos themselves."

Entry for October 18, 2020

I do believe the word "high" is appropriate for how I'm feeling. I was either going to feel "high" or "pitiful" tonight.

In case these references are really going over your head, then I will be blunt. I am proud to announce our latest celebrity signer. Can you take a wild, beautiful guess whom I'm alluding to??

It's James Blunt!

Yeah, as in multi-Platinum, award-winning, #1 hit songster, British superstar James Blunt! "You're Beautiful" James Blunt! "High" James Blunt! "Goodbye My Lover" James Blunt! James bloody Blunt!!!

Granted I caught him just as he was leaving a concert, and he may not have had any idea what exactly he was signing (although he did ask me to clarify where we were trying to put Al, and he asked me to take care of the other non-signature spaces for him), and the teenage tart next to me who kept mobbing him with her digital camera and the guy yelling "You're Beautiful!!!" were probably distracting him a little, but hey, beggars can't be choosers. He was still very nice about it and was a good sport. So thank you James!!!!

If you would like to thank James yourself via a sale or two, click here to order his smash hit debut album, Back to Bedlam.

And of course, if you haven't done so yet, you can download Al's shelved Blunt parody, "You're Pitiful," right here for free! It's okay, it's cool. Enjoy!

Thanks again James! You really are beautiful!

I'm not gay.
