PO:"Weird Al" Yankovic- Mandatory Fun

Recommended Posts

Weird Al's new album dropped today, and with that a vinyl pre-order is up on amazon and insound. It was very well made and quite funny. This is a little out of the norm for this site...but here it is. The ship date is August 5th

weird al will be something I will always enjoy no matter how old I get.  I have seen him many times and his stage show is awesome.  first time i saw him i was 10.  it ruled. most recent time i saw him i was 26.  it ruled just as equally. his guitarist jim west is honestly one of the best guitarists I have ever seen live.

I once met Weird Al at a gas station outside of Chicago at 2 in the morning. I'll never forget it, he was buying a 12 pack of Mountain Dew and a box of Slim Jims. Really nice guy.

 

I interacted with him once as well and found him to be a very nice dude. I was working in retail, stocking a shelves so my back was to him for most of the interaction. He started out with something like "Hey, I don't want to bother you because you look busy but I have a question". I was answering a lot of his questions without looking directly at him because I was crouched down and he was standing. About half way through the interaction, I stood up, turned around and was like "HOLY SHIT. I'VE BEEN TALKING TO WEIRD AL THIS WHOLE TIME!". :)

I'm sure he appreciated having a "normal" interaction with someone. That is, someone who wasn't just like "OMG A FAMOUS PERSON"
