First World Problems – “Weird Al” Yankovic. A Little Perspective Is Good #firstworldproblems

Sometimes ones problems need to be held up the light of perspective and satire. “Weird Al” Yankovic does a great job of that. First World Problems makes me realize life ain’t all that bad in the grand scheme of things. Tomorrow it will have been one week since seeing him in concert.

So I Am Seeing “Weird Al” Yankovic In Concert Tonight

Tonight I am going with some friends to see “Weird Al” Yankovic in concert at Chattanooga’s historic Tivoli Theater. The master of parody and satire has made an impression on the entertainment industry. I have been a huge fan of his for years and this is going to be a great show. His artistry is to take a song and make it his own and to put a unique spin on it. These two videos show his ability to make great music and put pictures with them.

Galaxy Quest – Never Give Up, Never Surrender

Featuring a great cast this movie is satire at its finest. Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Tony Shalhoub and the late Alan Rickman make this movie awesome. Fandoms and cosplay have a very central role in this movie. It has a great message of life imitating art and courage…and did I mention Enrico Colantoni too?
