    Minor tangent, but it's a pet peeve of mine:

    He did that irritating thing some people like do when they're trying to teach a lesson.

    The "fill in the blank with the specific word I'm thinking of" thing.

    "Listen to what I'm doing here. What am I doing? What is this sound?"

    and it just goes on and on and on as he waits for someone to come up with "tapping".

    I hate that shit. Nobody there is a fucking mind-reader, guy. Everybody sees what you are doing. They've described it multiple times. The fact that they haven't used your specific verbiage is not cause keep asking.

    This is right up there with teachers who blather on and periodically ask themselves questions and answer them but also ask you/the group questions in the exact same manner then act all offended when people don't answer.

    Oh my good god.

    The teacher I was student teaching under last semester did both of these things.

    WITH FIRST GRADERS.


    I felt so bad for them, they had no idea when they were and weren't expected to respond, there was zero consistency. It was infuriating to watch.

    Somewhat related, my statistics teacher last semester basically rushed through all the lectures, which were all on Power Point, because of course they fucking were, and would essentially roll her eyes whenever we didn't understand something

    Also, at one point, she was trying to show us how to do something on our graphing calculators. . . and she didn't know how to do it, so she spent probably fifteen minutes trying to figure out how to do it while the class just waited

    Finally, she just said "ok, for homework try to figure out how to put this in your calculators."

    When I was in middle school I had a teacher who kept erasing notes before people could write them down. He'd get so irritated when people asked him to leave them up or repeat something.

    He liked to go on about "his time" in college and how he had professors who would "literally write notes with one hand while erasing them with the other!" and how we should be getting prepared for that. Like a college education was some sort of fucking gauntlet people needed to train for since only the fittest survive. The quick and the dead.

    He'd picked up exactly the wrong fucking lesson from his own teachers - how to be a shitty one.

    The "write with one hand while erasing with the other" is a story I've heard before.

    So I'm going to guess it's fake as shit.

    He really didn't do that badly, he was fine mostly except for not knowing what a dice or julienne is and not getting what he was going for with the lettuce "rose"

    This was recorded in a garage on a 4-track cassette Portastudio way back in 1981, after "My Bologna" and "Another One Rides the Bus" but before I had landed a real record deal. Now the song is finally getting a proper release as a track on the rarities disc in my upcoming box set, with the permission and blessing of the George Harrison estate (Thanks, Dhani & Olivia!). "Squeeze Box: The Complete Works of 'Weird Al' Yankovic" is coming out in November, but it's a VERY limited release... so if you really want one, make sure you pre-order by Feb. 28!

    Yes, his last full album was his last he stated.

    Yes, his last full album was his last he stated.

    Though this is less because he's done making songs, and more because he feels that the traditional album system limits him - it's harder for him to do a topical parody with that sort of lead time.

    I like to think that Griffin McElroy takes a little time out of editing every silly dong-centric video he makes just to say to himself, "This is the kind of work you do when you are one of Forbes Magazine's Thirty Under Thirty."

    And then he does that thing where he laughs so hard he is nearly sick.

    I also like Markiplier but man I dunno

    I appreciate the general point but saying "he apoligised" for the jokes as if it was an actual apology and not a backhanded snipe is just not accurate.

    There's being respectful, and then there's being generous to the point where you do more harm than good. Even if his apology was sincere, until he at the very least condemns the neo-Nazis that now adulate his name, it all rings hollow. Has he done that yet? It doesn't seem like a big ask. Condemn Neo-Nazis. Sounds like a grand pasttime to me.

    A friendship that is only one "You really fucked up this time" from being destroyed isn't a friendship worth keeping

    Unless you mean from a business perspective, in which case i give not even the tiniest shit
