The Weird Al Movie Will Save Us All

The geniuses of the world have gotten together to make a Weird Al Yankovic biopic for the Roku…streaming service? Channel? What is The Roku Channel? I have no idea. But that doesn’t matter! We’re getting a biopic parody film starring Daniel Radcliffe as Weird Al!

Honestly, part of me wonders if this whole movie can live up to the short and sweet humor of the trailer. How do you take some of those short, snappy parody moments in that trailer and turn them into full scenes of a movie? Maybe it’s only a half hour movie. I dunno. I just love what I’m seeing and can’t wait to watch the whole thing!

Weird: The Al Yankovic Story comes to whatever The Roku Channel is on Nov. 4!

A Weird Al Biopic is Coming!

So the channel/thing that is Roku is making a biopic for Weird Al Yankovic, the greatest musician of all time. And it’s going to star Daniel Radcliffe as Weird Al, which might be the most inspired casting of all time. This whole thing just looks great!

This looks funny, subversive, weird and just plain darn good. I don’t know what Roku is, but I guess I’m going to have to get it by the time Weird comes out later this year.

Let’s All Remember The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny

The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny is one of the greatest internet artifacts of all time. It’s a true masterpiece. And then randomly the other day, I was browsing YouTube and stumbled upon this cover version, in which a bunch of creative artists have teamed up to make a new version!

And it’s great! That song will always be marvelous, and I love the new animations. I’m so glad I randomly found this thing in all its wonderful thingness. And I hope you enjoyed it as well!

Here’s Some Music for This Fine Monday

Over the course of the pandemic, I got really into the McElroy Brothers and their podcast, My Brother, My Brother and Me. I think they’re really funny and there was a lot of content to enjoy. I haven’t even started in on their Adventure Zone DnD stuff. But they’re funny, and they have a new theme song music video.

So the brothers had to get a new theme song earlier this year for reasons. Musician Montaigne wrote them a song, I think, and now, at long last, the full song and music video have been released online. It’s a good song, has a nice beat, and I figured it’s as good as anything else to share on this random Monday. So enjoy!

Just Something Nice Today

So it snowed for the first time this season last night. That’s fine. Tomorrow is Election Day in America. Ugh. And I’ve got a busy, but fun, day at work today. And not much else to share on this nice little blog. So how about this nice little cover of the X-Men animated series theme song on 8 cellos?

Cellist Samara Ginsberg has been doing a lot of cello covers of a bunch of famous songs. And that sounds like a really good thing to do on YouTube. So more power to her! Exactly the sort of innocuous, fun thing we need right now.
