Weird Al Releases Live Cover Supercut

Music"Weird Al" Yankovic is famous for his parodies and polka medleys, but this may well be his first cover song medley. 77 songs are covered (in bits and pieces) over 26 minutes, which were culled from his live tour. The sound quality is pretty good, and this would have made for a great digital release of some sort. Check it out. Elvis Costello, Devo, They Might Be Giants, David Bowie, Talking Heads, The Ramones, and pretty much everything you might want are here. Also Smashmouth.

Fury of the Aquabats Re-Reissued on Red Vinyl

MusicGot WoodApparently we missed the first releases! Gloopy Records released The Fury of the Aquabats Remastered/Expanded on CD and vinyl. I stumbled on it at Zia Records here in Arizona, and promptly bought it. Some of the tracks have audible differences - there's dialogue under the beginning of "Lobster Bucket" and "Super Rad" seemingly has different levels on the horns, they feel de-emphasized. Most of the other songs sound pretty much the same but it wouldn't stun me if there were alternate takes or meticulous re-recording in here.

The two new tracks are "Hockey Fight" and a new demo version of "Adventure Today." You can grab it on Amazon if you're too good to support your local record shop. The red is a newer release, a few months ago saw Green, Blue, and Pink. Pink was a show exclusive, no version exceeded 1500 so far.

Imaginext Series 11 Completely Bonkers

ImaginextGot WoodVia Phil, Kent, eBay, and elsewhere Imaginext Blind Bag Series 11 is hitting and ID codes have been found. All of the figures are great, but the X-Ray Man, Triple Threat Snake, and MUSCLE Men are must-buys for old toy farts. Series 10 had the creature and pilot from the Adventure People Alpha Star - and these things are three bucks a pop if you can find them.

The Battle Beasts tribute is particularly interesting in that it's a Hasbro/Takara item, when most other figure tributes are wholly-owned by Mattel.
