Happy Birthday, Weird Al


Alfred Matthew Yankovic was born on October 23, 1959 in Downey, California. Let us celebrate the birth of this wordsmith and musical genius by watching his video for “Foil.”

I particularly enjoy the cameo appearances in this video, and I think the whole concept is totally clever.

(Thanks to Dave for getting me back into Weird Al by introducing me to “Word Crimes.” Listen to “Word Crimes” and see the video here: http://www.rubbertrampartist.com/2015/03/05/national-grammar-day/.)

About Blaize Sun

I live in my van, which makes me a rubber tramp. I like to see places I’ve never seen before, and I like to visit the places I love again and again.

I like to play with color. I make collages and hemp jewelry and cheerful winter hats. I take photographs and (sometimes, not in a long time) write poetry. All of those things make me an artist.

Although I like to spread joy and to make people laugh, my wit can be sharp. I try to stay positives in all situations, to find the goodness in all people. But I often feel compelled to point out bullshit when I smell it.

I like to have fun, to dance, to eat yummy food, to sit by a fire and share stories. I want to know what people hold dear and important, not just make surface small talk.

This blog is a way for me to share stories. This blog is made up of my stories, rants, and observations, as well as my photographs.

I'd love to know what you think. Please leave a reply
