Weird Al day

It's not an official day, but I'm sure Weird Al would like it if there were an official Weird Al day.

In any case, I've had a few things about Weird Al come up over the past few months, and I've finally decided to put it all together into a blog.

First - from April 8, 2009 was a shout out for Al's new song CNR which I don't really understand. I've never heard of Charles Nelson. It seems to be a style parody of something the White Stripes would record.

Then on March 2, 2011

'Cause maybe I'll be a gorilla masseuse
Or an artist who sculpts out of chocolate mousse
Or a rodeo clown or a movie director
Or maybe professional pickle inspector...
Billy's classmates may have never considered careers in snail training or sumo wrestling before, but by the time the exuberant eight-year-old is done cataloging his dream jobs, they just might share his belief in unlimited potential!Virtuoso wordplay, irresistible rhythm, and laugh-out-loud humor abound in the first picture book by the one and only "Weird Al" Yankovic. This unbridled celebration of creativity and possibility invites readers of all ages to consider afresh what they want to be when they grow up.

Then he announced he's releasing a children's book that he wrote. I'm confident it will be better than the awful children's books that other celebrities like Rosanne Barr and Evangeline Lily are putting out.

In fact, it sounds awesome.

Then today - I've heard that Al is releasing a new record.

In case you haven’t heard, Weird Al and Lady Gaga recently made a big splash in the news – it seems there was some kind of misunderstanding over Al’s parody of “Born This Way” (which he retitled “Perform This Way.”)
