You gotta love Weird Al: Just a month after the release of his stunning "The Saga Begins," a STAR WARS-inspired parody of Don McLean's American Pie, the master of comedy has released his next single, "It's All About the Pentiums," an amazing rip on Puff Daddy's "It's All About the Benjamins." And if you're into computers (and let's face it, you're on this mailing list), then you're going to want to check this one out. It's a classic.
Some sample lyrics:
Yeah, payin' the bills with my mad programming skills
Defraggin' my hard drive for thrills
I got me a hundred gigabytes of RAM
I never feed trolls and I don't read spam
Installed a T1 line in my house
Always at my PC, double-clickin' on my mizouse
You gotta be the dumbest newbie I've ever seen
You've got white-out all over your screen
You think your Commodore 64 is really neato
What kinda chip you got in there, a Dorito?
You're using a 286? Don't make me laugh
Your Windows boots up in what, a day and a half?
You could back up your whole hard drive on a floppy diskette
You're the biggest joke on the internet
Your database is a disaster
You're waxin' your modem tryin' to make it go faster
Hey fella, I bet you're still livin' in your parents' cellar
Downloadin' pictures of Sarah Michelle Gellar
I'll leave the rest for you to discover on your own, but rest assured that the lyrics, the song, and the new video are simply amazing. For more info, wax up that modem and head over to Weird Al's "The Pentium's" Web site
