Weird Al Gets Retrospective, Kind Of

I’m fat, I’m fat, you know it. Been spending most our lives living in an Amish paradise. Like a surgeon, cutting for the very first time. These songs and other choice Weird Al favorites are now immortalized in art. This weekend Gallery1988 in California opens their show “Is This Thing On? 2” – The Weird Year.

Gallery1988 teamed up with FunnyorDie to literally make comedy an art form. How clever.

My cassette tape of Weird Al’s “Even Worse” is no where to be found now. But if I could pull it up, I would find hits like “Fat”, “I think I’m a Clone Now”, and the forgotten classic, “This Song’s Just Six Words Long” mocking George Harrison’s “I’ve Got My Mind Set On You.” Oddly enough, this album was released in 1988. . .

If you are anywhere near the Melrose location of Gallery1988 this weekend in L.A. watch out for Weird Al himself, who will be in attendance tonight and hosting the reception from 7-10 pm.

And now, for your viewing pleasure, the official “UHF” music video. (You can buy a print based on this song too.) We’re going to make a couch potato out of you!
