Mashup Monday (archive edition)

The Weird One, putting a newish spin on a classic.

Genius loves company

Finally, in the aftermath of Jimmy Carrey’s gun control debacle, Funny or Die gets the first part of their name right. Somewhere, my two Huey Lewis/”Weird Al” aficionado friends’ brains are exploding from the awesomeness of this clip. Actually, one of them did apparently, shortly after sharing the link with me. Now off to get [...]

Duck and Cover! (Thursday Open Thread)

It’s Christmas at Ground Zero!

To have been in Maui for New Year’s

Said the “Weird” one in a Tweet: “Every New Year’s Eve for the rest of my life is gonna suck.”

Burn your candle at both ends, look a gift horse in the mouth (BUMPED)

UPDATE: For the curious and/or interminably bored, amongst some other fun-time discoveries, some interesting info re. Dancing with the Stars during the “Weird Al” Billboard event. Sadly, none of my questions in the mix, but no matter, such is life. Check ‘em out, check ‘em outers.

Hall of Fame, Corrected (Vol. 8.5)

Ending this week where it pretty much all began for “Weird Al,” and anyone lucky enough to be watching Tom Snyder at the time. Often imitated but never duplicated, I owe any parody I’ve ever done — from “Mama We’re All Lazee Now” (Quiet Riot’s “Mama We’re All Crazee Now”) and “Cloud City” (to Little [...]

Hall of Fame, Corrected (Vol. 8.4)

Today’s selections come courtesy friend and “Weird Al” super-fan 1.2 Ryan Hopak. A game show question writer in Los Angeles whose credits include “Cash Cab,” “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” “Repo Games” and “Jeopardy!,” keep an eye out for Ryan’s upcoming series “Who’s Still Standing” on NBC and “The Game of Life” on [...]

Hall of Fame, Corrected (Vol. 8.3)

Today’s entries come courtesy A.J. Laird, friend, singer/percussionist for the WAMI-award-winning band The Sandcarvers and “Weird Al” super-fan #1.1 (1.2 will be chiming in later in the week).

For me, being an Al fan goes all the way back to the early 80’s and his first album’s release. I was hooked ever since. I was [...]

Hall of Fame, Corrected (Vol. 8.2)

Get down with Al and his funky self today …

Hall of Fame, Corrected (Vol. 8.1)

In honor of getting tickets this weekend for my fifth “Weird Al” Yankovic concert — plus my “one for the thumb” will be center-stage somewhere in the first six rows (love fan-club pre-sales) — the premiere satirist/parody artist in the history of music (no offense, Spike Jones) gets this week’s nods. Scoff all ya want, [...]
