I'm confused. According to the rules:

"1. No pictures from weirdal.com or Al's Twitter are to be used for avatars, photo art or anything else unless you are the actual owner of the photo. This is non-negotiable. We can hardly call ourselves a fan board if we don't respect the wishes of Al or Bermuda with respect to copyrights and the webpage etc. Think we won't recognize if a picture is from The Mothership? Think again. Someone will, count on it. If you happen to find a picture that someone else has purloined from The Mothership, you still can't use it. Even if you didn't know that was the original source. "

So I can "steal" any image I want from anything I want as long as it's not weird al related, on a weird al message board? I saw a guy here with the 1st LP as his avatar. Isn't that considered "stealing"? I'm not trying to be difficult. English isn't my first language. These rules seem very confusing.

If the image is sourced from somewhere that isn't deliberately weirdal.com or the like, it's okay. My avatar is a picture I had taken last year after a concert.

Hey folks! My name is AP, and I'm (obviously) a huge Weird Al fan like everyone else here.

This year, I've dedicated myself to digitally redrawing all 14 studio albums in my style with a new take on the topic. So yeah, essentially a parody of a parody. I plan to share a lot in the art section.

What else? Well, I somehow missed Al's music growing up (not sure how that happened since it's all right up my alley), but I became a fan as a grown up when Mandatory Fun was released. I'm making up for lots of lost time and went to four concerts on the most recent tour. I drew an Al mural on a six-foot dry erase board in my office. It's been there six months, but I get some pretty sweet double takes on visitors' walks to the bathroom.

You're never too old for Weird Al..
I've come for some poking about .. I've got a 1953 DeSoto that is in need of some TLC... have thought it would be fun to actually drive it to the twineball...
