"Weird Al" Yankovic - Just Stupid Enough (Complete Videography 1980-2020) (WIP)
Time

This is actually a project I started in 2019 for the 40th anniversary of My Bologna, but since this year marks the 40th anniversary of Another One Rides The Bus (it’s single anyway…) I thought it would be fun to start work on it again. This is a very similar project to my Devo blu-ray in that it will be the most comprehensive collection of Weird Al videos, upscaled and restored in 4K. There will be plenty of bonus features, and every single music video from 1980 to 2020 will be included.

Project Artwork:

Here’s the list of videos:

  1. My Bologna
  2. Ricky
  3. I Love Rocky Road
  4. Eat It
  5. I Lost On Jeopardy
  6. This Is The Life
  7. Like A Surgeon
  8. Dare To Be Stupid
  9. One More Minute
  10. Living With A Hernia
  11. Christmas At Ground Zero
  12. Fat
  13. Money For Nothing / Beverly Hillbillies *
  14. UHF
  15. Smells Like Nirvana
  16. You Don’t Love Me Anymore
  17. Jurassic Park
  18. Bedrock Anthem
  19. Headline News
  20. Amish Paradise
  21. Gump
  22. Spy Hard
  23. The Saga Begins
  24. It’s All About The Pentiums

Hey Mango just noticed that the band have an official Demo video for Mongoloid on their YouTube channel. Is this the same one that you have?

That’s pretty cool! Checked that out, then watched a 1982 Letterman interview, which is really funny! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EoboWHE42Fk

Saw that Letterman interview recently too. Good stuff!

Project DEVO (The Complete DEVO Videography) COMING SOON (a WIP)
Time

After much consideration, I have decided to include the video for the cover of “Hey Hey, My My” with Neil Young from the film Human Highway. I was unsure of whether it should be included, but seeing as how the blu-ray version of the film has a much shorter version, I decided to buy a Laserdisc copy. As far as I know, this has the best source for the uncut version of “Hey Hey, My My”. Just like everything else on the disc, it will be restored in 4K. This brings the total count of videos up to 28 excluding bonus features. I am unsure, but that may make it an absolutely complete collection.

Project DEVO (The Complete DEVO Videography) COMING SOON (a WIP)
Time

I know I keep going back and forth, but I’ve decided to work on new versions and master them in 4K. I’m really sorry this project is taking so long, but I truly want it to be the best it can possibly be. I truly thank everyone who has shown any interest in this project. To be honest, I was unsure that it would get any response, but it has become my most anticipated project. I’m taking a trip to Florida for a few days in the beginning of March, but otherwise I have been and will continue working on this daily. I am truly committed to making this the ultimate tribute to the most misunderstood band in music history. Devo is a huge trip of nostalgia for me, despite having grown up in the late 90s. If it weren’t for my mom showing me their greatest hits album when I was 5 years old, this project never would’ve happened. The responses I get from everyone on this this site keep me going, through this era that is extremely stressful for everybody. I cannot thank you guys enough for your support. I am promising to work on this project everyday throughout this month. I hope it will be available shortly after my trip to Florida.

Thank you for everything, and remember to take time out for fun!

Tron (Mangowolf Edition) Color Regrade (Released)
Time

It has come to my attention that the blu-ray is not a very good source for the movie as the majority of the film has been “corrected” in several ways. It also has become apparent that the movie is in fact supposed to have a strong blue tint, even stronger then on the blu-ray. For these reasons, a new version of the project will be underway soon using the original 1998 DVD as the source. The entire film will be upscaled using Topaz Video Enhance AI and the movie will be color corrected accordingly.

Have you seen this version of Disco Dancer? It even has a topless clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wa0DB7-jhzI
I only discovered it in the past year.

Also did you see the the restored “In the Beginning Was the End: The Truth About De-Evolution” that Nicholas Winding Refn had done last year?

I’m really looking forward to your project and I love the clip you posted.

Wow! Thanks for the tip. That restoration of “Truth About De-Evolution” will make my job a lot easier. Nice find on the alternate version of “Disco Dancer” too. That can definitely be a bonus feature!

Tron (Mangowolf Edition) Color Regrade (Released)
Time

After a long time of research, it seems that the film may have indeed had a strong blue tint when in theatres, meaning that the blu-ray only needs a little bit of adjustment. With that in mind, I’m going to do 2 versions, one that looks more like my original remaster, and one that to my eyes is more accurate to the theatrical version. Both will have restored original stereo audio from the Laserdisc. Work on this will begin soon.

The project is underway again, and will hopefully be ready in time for Christmas. I’m also doing new transfers of “We’re All Devo” and “The Men Who Make The Music” which will be used on the final product. Obviously, this year has been quite a ride for everyone, but I’m excited to begin work again.

Also, sometime soon there will be new versions of my projects for “The Howling”, “Tron” and “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre”. As for the Shrek project, it may have to wait til next ear due to the unexpected insanity that this year was.
