    Nice to see how many of us had Weird Al as their first show. Mine was back in 1984 at the Del Mar Fair.

    And hell yes for the style parodies. Here's my old-timey favorite.

    The new album is really good. The Pixies parody is awesome.

    This would be fun - that Word Crimes parody/video is pure genius...best he's ever done outside of maybe Fat.

    Yes! A Coachella appearance would be great. He says he's going on a huge world tour in 2015. My first concert was also Al, back in 1985 at the Greek Theater.

    By the way, the Pixies style-parody "First World Problems" is today's video directed by Liam Lynch... This one might be my favorite of the bunch so far.

    Al's always been surprisingly good at rapping ("Amish Paradise", "White and Nerdy", "Couch Potato")... Congrats BTW to Al for his first ever #1 album in his 30+ year career.

    Build a time machine. Go back in time 30 years. Start asking people, "In your opinion, which artist performing today will not only still be making music in 30 years, but still be getting better with each album?" Willing to bet nobody would guess Weird Al. I've seen him enough times live that I'd only catch him at Coachella if there were no conflicts, but when he plays in LA or San Diego I'll definitely be there.

    Saw him here in Edmonton when I was quite young. He came out on stage wearing his "Fat" outfit from the video brandishing a chainsaw. I will never forget. Fantastic performer.

    How telling is it that the Weird Al thread is the most active artist thread under Rumors? Because I hope it's very telling.

    it was awesome! imagine the sahara around 25% capacity with about half of those people walking out with very confused looks on their faces and everyone left over enjoying the hell out of it. various characters kept showing up in random places throughout the weekend (including on stage during other sets). very surreal to see a kids show with no kids in sight, in what is probably considered the shadiest place on the entire polo grounds.

    it was the first set we saw that weekend and it put our group in a super good mood
