    Any big fans? My first album was Straight Outta Lynwood, which is still one of my favorites.
    How has the man stayed so consistent over the years? His newest, Mandatory Fun, had some incredible originals on it. "Mission Statement," especially.

    My top 3 albums are (in no order)
    Running With Scissors
    Off the Deep End (Trigger Happy is a classic)
    Straight Outta Lynwood

    Bad Hair Day still rules, but I think some of the songs he chose to parody have not held up as well as others he has chosen in the past. But the Alternative Polka does a good job of covering that ground.

    It's also remarkable how funny he can be while being squeaky clean

    Both accurate! Dude is an amazing songwriter and yeah, he was my first concert, at age 12.

    What's your favorite video? I'm a big fan of Smells Like Nirvana and White and Nerdy

    I love the Rocky Road video, with that lady biting on his ankles. Lol

    The video for Fat is pretty funny as well.

    I came. I saw. I -kzzkt-.

    Still, one of the few men that earn my undivided 12 minutes of attention anytime "Albuquerque" comes on. The "Bohemian Rhapsody" of parody songs.

    Amish Paradise is the best video

    He played Albuquerque at the show I went to, except that around the 9 minute mark he said "Do you ever get halfway through a story and then forget where you were? Oh well, we'll just start over." Cue drum roll and they played the whole song again.

    The video came out mere months after my parents took me and my sister to Lancaster, PA on vacation. Suffice to say, it was entirely spot-on in terms of outsiders' perception of the Amish community.

    I can't afford the Squeeze Box, but I'm dying to hear what is on the rarities disc when it does come out.

    Yeah, idk, I asked him on Twitter and I doubt I get a response. Track listing coming out soon, excited to see that.
