As I talked about yesterday, we went to see Weird Al in concert on Tuesday. I think I’ve also mentioned that I got a new camera? Actually I think I mentioned that in a post I haven’t finished and published yet. Okay, so important fact: I got a new camera. I’m a bit of addicted to taking pictures too, so take that trait plus new toy plus important situation I’m totally stoked about, mix liberally with great seats and lax security checks, and you get a huge pic spam that I’m now sharing with you.
And would you believe this is only about a third of the pictures I actually took? Well believe it. I love you so hard, digital age.
(The full-size of these pics is a bit big at 800×600. Helpful tip: In both Firefox and IE, you can press F11 to toggle full screen, which may help depending on your monitor size.)
The banner means much the same.
Love the semi-coordinated dancing.
From my seat, I thought it was a Wesley Crusher-style sweater. I admit to some disappointment. But that is a rather horrible sweater.
The random Donny Osmond clips were the icing on a sweet, sweet cake, even as he warped time and space.
So yeah, so that's Al. In the "Fat" suit. I wondered if he'd do it, and then he did it and I was still surprised he did it. A great thing I have to mention: This crowd - I mean obviously everyone there was a huge fan of Weird Al. But one of the greatest moments was when they played the intro to the "Fat" video on the screen and the entire venue recited it, pitch perfect. "You ain't fat, you ain't nothin'! YOU AIN'T NOTHIN'!" It was just the sort of moment you go to concerts for.
Choreographed and everything. Incidentally, the glasses for the fat suit? Nice touch.
God damn that Santa, always showing up with his gardening tools.
The final song of the show and a well-deserved (though probably difficult) bow.
End wankery! Bonus ponts!
doodly doodly doodly doooooo
Amidst a Palpatine'd keyboard player emerges the evil Imperial forces.
We all have cell phones, so why is Al looking for them so hard?
This is possibly the geekiest photograph ever taken.
The balcony has cell phones too! WE ALL HAVE CELL PHONES.
On the beats in the chorus, the Stormstroopers all struck a pose. It was cute and I was amused.
The three on the right were particularly into it.
