Any "Weird Al" fans? 

I sure am! I think he is one of the greatest parody people (?) ever!!! I think  he's really funny and has some real talent.

What's your favorite "Weird Al" song!? Mine is The Saga Begins.

 Oh and here is this beautiful nugget floating around the interweb!

I have a friend who has every one of his albums and is a really big fan, so for his birthday last year I took him to see him live. It was so so funny, I have to admit. a-hard-days-night-george-8

Oh and I forgot to mention! Weird Al does this thing where he takes a bunch of popular songs, puts a small part of the songs in one song and makes it all polka and stuff! In one song he does Polka Hey Jude for a few seconds! It's actually cool! apple01

For all you Weird Al Fans, There is a new box set of all his albums remastered coming out.

I really do like the packaging, and think that it's very imaginative and different instead of it just being a boring box. I'm mainly excited for the new bonus rarities album. I'm glad that Al is going the route of The Beatles and Billy Joel with his box set and including a rarities disc in it.

Seeing Weird Al live was honestly one of the highlights of my life. I'm so excited for the box set to come out! I hope my dad will buy it for us, since I don't have any money for it. He's the one who got us tickets to see him in the first place, so I assume he will...

Never assume. To ensure you receive the set see the below video for an effective method of getting it

I usually go back and watch AL TV on YouTube now and again. I love the segments where he mocks the music videos that are played.

Somewhere on YT, there are clips of him talking over the videos to Chicago's Stay The Night and Prince's When Doves Cry which crack me up every time I watch them, but I can't find them ATM ahdn_george_05 in the mean time, my favourite "interview" of his aside from Paul and George's.
