Yeah, I'd say Bad Hair Day and Running With Scissors were his peak. Pretty much every parody on those two are pure gold.

QFT. Literally had never heard any of the parody songs.

"Tacky" seems like the standout to me. Not quite "White & Nerdy" or "Party in the CIA," but some good laughs.

"The Focus" is solid. I wasn't too sure on the first couple listens, but I'm digging it now. As long as it's one of the weaker tracks on the upcoming LP, I'll be more than happy.

Likewise, with...

Yeah, I had the same thought. S/T is probably their most thoroughly depressing and dreary LP, so summer is the time I'd be least likely to listen. DE and ATF feel like the closest things to a sunny,...

Regarding the above S4 issues: it's probably Verizon and/or Samsung's fault, not that 4.4.2 is inherently "buggy." I've been running CM11 4.4.2 on my S3 for months without any serious issues.
