“Weird Al” Yankovic posted a picture of a disturbing sign on a hiking trail:
Starting the Week with Weird Al
My iPod ran down its charge over the weekend, and I had to plug in the car charger this morning and start over at the beginning of a playlist. I usually leave it on shuffle on a reaaaaaally long list so I get lots of different songs.
It started up with “Weird Al” Yankovic’s “Bohemian Polka,” which was a fun, off-kilter start to the week. When it followed up with “Jurassic Park,” I didn’t think much of it. Twofers by artist, and even by album, aren’t that uncommon.
When “Living in the Fridge” started up, I got a little suspicious.
Sure enough, when I stopped the car and checked, shuffle was set to “off.” I figure the playlist must have been sorted by album the last time I synced, with Alapalooza the first on the list.
I’m still not sure whether it switched off shuffle when the battery ran down, or I just had it off before and didn’t notice because the last playlist I was listening to was pre-shuffled. Still, it was — appropriately — weird.
Download? Don’t Download?
How appropriate! You can download “Weird Al” Yankovic’s “Don’t Download This Song” for free. (via @amazonmp3)
It’s not off to a great start, but heres hoping today is less frustrating than yesterday.
Was hoping for more than 30% chance of rain, esp. the way TV news was going on last night w/LIVE DOPPLER 2000! Where’s that “Weird Al” Yankovic vid?
Appropriate. Today’s Word of the Day is triskaidekaphobia.
Slowest Patch Tuesday update ever. Of course that’s partly because Norton decided to run a full scan DURING the update.
Patches did eventually finish, but it took >1.5 hours to install them. Usually if I start it before lunch, it’s done when I get back.
Someone searching for “old photos of shoreline village long beach” hit this photo…taken last week. Oops.
“Weird Al” Yankovic’s song “Skipper Dan” has been stuck in my head on-and-off all weekend. Living near Disneyland makes it that much more funny. And did I mention there’s a video?
