I am one of the biggest Weird Al Yankovic fans on the planet. So when I heard, that he was going to make a new album, I can tell you one guy that was excited. I know this is going to sound bad, but after “Straight Outta Lynwood” I had some really high hopes, but “Alpocalypse” was kind of a let down. So not only has “Mandatory Fun” been one of the best albums he has released, but he is doing 8 videos in 8 days. Something that has never been done. So, I was able to sit down and watch all the videos that has been released and I have to say, He may have the two best parodies of his career. And we are going to feature both of them. First up, In My Opinion, is the best parody since “White & Nerdy” and maybe the best video of his since “Fat”. “Tacky” is a spoof of the Pharrel song “Happy” featuring the humor of Jack Black, Margaret Cho, Aisha Tyler, Kristen Schaal, and Eric Stonestreet. I am also adding that I would wear the suit Al rocks at the beginning of the video.

And secondly, The Weird one parodies the hit song of last Summer by Robin Thicke, “Blurred Lines.” Al spoofs all the people who have trouble with “Word Crimes.”

Richard Pruitt

I am Richard and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
