Weird Al Seriously (New Book)

Post by Killingsworth »

So, Al is already promoting this on the mothership and yet I have strangely heard nothing about this.

He's been promoting this along with Nathan Rabin's "Weird Accordion To Al" book which I've heard about endlessly (because I follow Rabin on social media and backed the Kickstarter for the book as soon as it was announced) but again, this is the first I'm hearing about the book "Weird Al Seriously" and it comes out on March 4. I'm not even sure what angle it even takes on Al.

Based on what I can find about the author of the book online (she has a degree in musicology) and, well, the title of the book, I'm going to take a wild guess and say the "angle" will be a serious study of his music. Probably a lot of why he does what he does and why it works. Count me very interested.

So, it's probably going to be a lot less "jokey" than Rabins' new book? I've read some of his essays about certain Al songs on his site already and he has some exaggerated lies for comedic effect. Hopefully, this won't also be a series of essays as well like Nathan is doing.
