Al is very sympathetic to geek communities and frequently gives them recognition in his songs.

In 1989, Weird Al starred in the film , Al fulfilled his record contract, and he now plans to go with completely digital releases in the future, which gives him the opportunity to release new songs as they're completed instead of waiting until he has enough material for a full album.

Unlike other parody-centric artists, Al and his band (who have been together since the 80s) from the second album on — the first album used accordion on every track, in keeping with Al's trademark talent — stay extremely close to the original melodies and instrumentation of the song they parody.

Lots of these songs contain raunchy or offensive lyrics, and the lead vocal vaguely sounds like Al; since Al is the most visible parody musician alive, his name gets attached to them, despite having subject matter and lyrics he would never touch.

Even with the occasional dip into raunchy subtext, he still aims to be (in his words) a "more-or-less family-friendly" performer. I wanna be your Krakatoa Let my lava flow all over you I wanna be your anaconda And your heat-seeking missile too I wanna be your beef burrito Am I making this perfectly clear?

The best way to tell if Al performed a given song is to look for music videos of them on You Tube. I wanna be your love torpedo Are you picking up the subtle innuendo here?

With humor and emotion, Kristina Grish celebrates the terrific intricacies of multilayered, interfaith relationships in this girl-meets-boy dating guide. But isn't it nice to know there are guys out there who analyze relationships more than you do? ," "The First Shtup," and "Talk Yiddish to Me" detail how a sexy Shiksa can meet, date, and love a nice Jewish boy of her own. Pretty useless and just perpetuates stereotypes (jewish men are neurotic, good lovers, and only doctors/lawyers/bankers).

She waxes poetic about why Jewish men are great boyfriend material: They're smart, entrepreneurial, generous, doting, and funny. I realized it was going to be a fluffy book, but there could have been some relevance (for example how culture influences their choices, how religious rites fit in), but this was certainly all about how to change yourself and try to fit in.

Basically, this book is only useful if the Jewish man in question is a living breathing Awful and completely inaccurate.
