sure, it's got nothing to do with DualDisc video, but it will have lots of photos.

:D


I actually hadn't read that far yet..I was too excited about the videos :D

But man, this album's packed!


We learned so much from this Ask Al: The videos, the booklet, the album name, Ed got the smack down laid on him....very informative!
in a complicated song does it look like al has no head

This is just a guess, but it's possible that JibJab is doing the CI video... That's what sounds like the most political song on the AL-bum, and JibJab is a political... company, I guess.

I'll bet you're right. Also, Canadian Idiot is short and upbeat, which helps. I can't imagine JibJab's style working on the Usher parody, for instance.

Quite awesome indeed. Though I'm not completely certain whether or not Thomas Lee is doing Pancreas, or if he's doing I'll Sue Ya, just because of the weird posibilty that the tracklisting order COULD have changed since they made that post on Newgrounds.

The thing I find most interesting was the fact that I had kept speculating that Al might have gotten JibJab to do the sixth video, and in some ways I was right. Also I wouldn't be surpised if they end up doing "Canadian Idiot".

I had also been hoping that the folks at Shynola were going to be a doing video, but I guess I was wrong with that.

Oh, and in case you're curious, here's some of Jim Blashfield's videos
Talking Heads - And She Was
Michael Jackson - Leave Me Alone
Paul Simon - Boy in the Bubble
Tears for Fears - Sowing the Seeds of Love

I'm really excited about the Jim Blashfield video, regardless of what song it actually is!

"Leave Me Alone" is one of my favorite of Jackson's videos. I've seen the others before but it's been a long time.

Something interesting to note is that all four of those that Marko posted included animation of the artists singing the song at least for part of the videos. I wonder if the video for "I'll Sue Ya" (assuming that's the one it's for) will have Al in it at all?

The Bill Plympton video didn't have any Al, even though his Kanye West video DID include Kanye. And Al said in the "Ask Al" that he didn't give the artists much direction, so I'm guessing he's not in the video, but I really hope he is.

This album just keeps getting better and better! I'm glad to find out who the 6th director is, and I'm sure he'll do a great job. I think it's awesome that we'll get the premiere of "Weasel Stomping Day" on September 24th, even though I might not watch it because I've already heard 2 songs from the album and I want to save the rest for the 26th.

As for JibJab, I agree that CI is the most likely one for them to do. It would seem to fit the best on their site. I really think this album is going to be an underground phenomenon. Robot Chicken and JibJab both have sort of a cult following (at least at my college), so I think Al's album could really take off.
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.
