Stinky Cheese

This week has been a bit of a wash. I’ve had to run to the doctor again…which sucked. But the big news is of course getting ready for the Weird Al Yankovic concert!

I’ve been a big fan of Al’s since he released ‘Eat It’ and ‘My Bologna’. I’ve gone to two of his concerts so far. Tomorrow will be my 3rd! To get tickets to the last concert I that I attended
I had to put my customer on hold so I could be first to hit TicketMaster.com when they went on sale.

“Oh, your server is down? I’m going to need to put you on hold for about five minutes so I can..ah…reboot my test server...yeah that’s it.”

Ah…yes….front row seats…..it was so incredibly cool. Although, on concert day, when we were getting settled some woman came up to us and started telling us a sob story about how her kids REALLY REALLY wanted front row tickets and asking if we’d switch with them. Apparently they weren’t satisfied with the 6th row tickets she bought. We made an attempt not to laugh at her….we failed. Front row kicks ass!

This time around, I got us row 5 seats. I could have gotten us closer but I’d have to break our group up into smaller groups. I’m fine with row 5….as long as I get to sit with my posse. :P

The big song this concert is going to be the hit single ‘White and Nerdy’ which is a parody of Chamillionaire’s song ‘Ridin’. Unlike the drama surrounding Weird Al’s song ‘Amish Paradise’…a parody of Coolio’s ‘Gangsta Paradise’…Chamillionaire welcomed this satire and maintains a friendship with the king of parody.

A quick note about the ‘White and Nerdy’ song, it is the first and ONLY song of Weird Al’s to make it to the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. The closest he ever got previously was back in 1984 when ‘Eat it’ made it all the way to the #12 slot.

To view the music video…
I think the best part is Donny Osmond doing the white boy dance behind Weird Al.

It is very possible that Weird Al is the only thing on the face of the planet that is more awesome than ninjas…..

I'm in row 13. I can't believe none of you told me about the show this time.

Bastards... not that I'm bitter or anything.

DOH! I thought you were out of town this weekend. That's why I didn't ask you. :(
