“Weird Al” and Me

I’ve always been a huge fan of “Weird Al” Yankovic, and with his new album, Mandatory Fun, on the way, I thought I’d recount my own little brush with fame here.

Here’s the Newgrounds story.

It tells how my silly little cartoon video of “Angry White Boy Polka” got Al’s attention, and how I got to meet him backstage at one of his concerts in Puyallup, WA. It was a truly humbling experience, and it taught me my first real lesson about the internet: you never know who might be watching!

My love to all,
