What a night! Music legend Weird Al Yankovic was in Austin performing a concert at the most elite venue the Live Music Capital of the world has to offer; the historic ACL Live at the Moody Theater! All the hosts of the Gabbing Geek podcast were there. What did they think?
After the break, the greatest song ever written about Jurassic Park.
The interwebs is a cesspool of awesomeness, especially when it comes to Star Wars parody videos! Check out some of our favorite varieties that have graced the galaxy like: “Do You Want To Kill Some Rebels (Frozen)” and “Wrecking Maul” and of course the Bohemian Rhapsody: Star Wars Edition! See these and more after the break.
I’ve always thought my most geek defining characteristic was not my love of comic books or sci-fi, but that of musical comedy. Sure, everyone enjoys watching a good parody on SNL or YouTube occasionally, but how many have their iPod full of comedic music albums?
Like most geeks I cut my death on the genre with the king, Mr. “Weird Al” Yankovic. Yes, you’ll find his complete discography on my iPod. While I find Al’s more recent work a bit disappointing (which I mostly blame on the fact that he is parodying current top 40 songs, which I hate), I can still put on Dare To Be Stupid and laugh my ass off. From “Weird Al” I would graduate (to a lesser degree) to Monty Python and Adam Sandler. But being Canadian I also stumbled across a musical trio from Kingston, Ontario called The Arrogant Worms!
