Cliff of Somewhere Around Detroit, Michigan asks: Al, you usually only have a couple of videos for each album.

Why do six (although I appreciate the extra work that you, the band and the behind-the-scenes people do so fans like me can watch more amazing videos than ever) for Straight Outta Lynwood?

I generally don’t have a lot of time to come up with videos when I’m dealing with parodies, but there are typically several months between the time I finish recording the originals and the time an album gets released, so even though I knew it would be a logistical nightmare, I figured I could pull it off…

all of the Ask Al’s ever asked and answered, both on and in The Midnight Star (an unofficial fanzine from 1993 through 1998.) Please keep in mind that some of the answers which were relevant at the time they were given will seem quite “dated” now and may possibly be inaccurate.

As you probably know by now, the Academy-Award nominated animator Bill Plympton did the video for “Don’t Download This Song”…

he’s a true icon in the world of animation, and he’s done several animated feature films (including “The Tune,” “I Married A Strange Person,” “Mutant Aliens” and the soon-to-be-released “Hair High”) as well as the latest Kanye West video.

It all began a couple years ago, when my record label suggested that I consider doing a Dual Disc release.

At the time I thought it was a great idea, because I was all in favor of anything that would make the new album more of an event and provide more “bang for the buck” for the fans.

You may notice that I also mentioned T Pain in the “special thanks” – similarly, he had given his blessing for me to do a parody of one of his songs.

At the last minute, I decided against recording the song for the album, but if you come to one of my live shows this summer, you may hear a snippet of it somewhere in the medley…

I was absolutely thrilled that John Kricfalusi agreed to do one of the videos – he’s a true genius and one of my all-time heros (many of you would know him as the creator of Ren & Stimpy).
