MAD AL

For the first time in its 63 year history, MAD Magazine has just put out an issue with a Guest Editor: "Weird Al" Yankovic. And he's not just a figurehead*; the issue includes "Pages from Weird Al's Notebook", several of Al's celebrity friends including Patton Oswalt and John Hodgman as guest writers, and caricatures of Al from 11 different MAD artists. The best online collection of sample pages is here. [more inside]

The Weird Al Yankovic Namesake Sandwich He Never Knew He Asked For

AVclub.com asked Weird Al Yankovic, "If a deli named a sandwich after you, what would be on it?" His answer:
I’d say a fire-roasted eggplant, some roasted red peppers, diced heirloom tomatoes, some thin-sliced red onions—maybe double up on the onions and have some caramelized onions on top of the sliced onions. A little basil, some arugula, some chopped and marinated mushrooms, maybe a slice of fresh avocado, some alfalfa sprouts, a dose of hummus, a drizzle of pomegranate molasses and put it on a warm toasted French roll lovingly sprinkled with some truffle oil.
Challenge accepted.

Because the VMAs were the night BEFORE and he wasn't invited

The highlight of Monday Night's Emmy Awards telecast was (MeFi's Beloved) Weird Al Yankovic performing a medley of the lyrics that popular shows' theme songs SHOULD have. (With Very Special Guest Andy Samberg as 'Joffrey' making a very special presentation to George R. R. Martin in the audience... that [SPOILER] apparently was NOT poisoned)

ACCORDION SOLO!

Be forewarned, the sound quality isn't the best. But for a dose of pure surreality strong enough to turn your socks into melted Dada timepieces, try mixing "Weird Al" Yankovic on accordion with the Presidents of the United States, performing a (non-parody) cover of Boston's "More Than a Feeling" (SLYT). (via Dave Dederer's Reddit interview)
