If you buy only one album this browsing session, well, it'll probably be Lady Gaga or somethin'. But you should really consider this one! It's got comedy, drama, dark sensuality, international conspiracies, mad science, Norwegian fishermen, auctions, alien invasion, cross-dressing, and more! And, it's a multilevel marketing extravaganza, with "Rock Me Amidala" from the independent film Saving Star Wars, the Transylvania Polygnostic University Fight Song from Girl Genius, the award-winning "Rich Fantasy Lives" (lyrics by Rob Balder [Partially Clips, ErfWorld], and the official chantey for Talk Like A Pirate Day, as well as a bonus track from Tom's gonna-be-finished-someday-really Skullrose and Tourmaline!
