First, congratulations to Weird Al Yankovic for having his new album, Mandatory Fun, debut at #1! Fun Facts: This is the first comedy album to reach #1 since 1963. (Anybody want to guess what that album was?) And it's the first comedy album ever to debut at #1. Congrats, Al!
Second, the San Diego Comic Con was this weekend. Lots of people got together, many of them dressed as characters from comics, science fiction movies and TV shows, and, oddly, four guys who all came dressed as Patrick Swayze from To Wong Foo... due to a mix-up. Still, I'm sure they had a good time.
Among the things that came out of ComicCon were trailers for a bunch of upcoming flicks, including Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Mad Max: Fury Road. I'm sure there were dozens of other really cool be-coloned films that we'll be hearing about soon, so keep an eye out!
And now, on to the reason I come here on Sunday nights. We've got a few new names showing up on the list for the first time, and I'm sure it won't be their last. But before we get started, again let me suggest you get your butts over to Twitter and join in on the lunacy! It's fun! I'll even recommend people follow you and stuff!
Anyway, let's do this thing!
