Watch: Weird Al’s new songs keep getting better. Today he takes on Lorde

Follow micdotcom

The thing that’s really great about Weird Al’s effort is that he’s spreading the wealth marketing wise. “Tacky" was an exclusive to Nerdist; Vevo got "Word Crimes”; and now “Foil" is a College Humor joint.

This means that he has not one, not two, but three big-name video outlets working to promote a single album. It requires coordination to be this good at marketing yourself while working with so many players. It also makes Beyonce look like she’s not trying hard enough.

And there are still 5 to go!

which was promptly deleted. (G-Bb-A-D are the notes to Rue’s whistle.)

But if you had clicked inspect element before it was deleted

"You silence our voices, but we are still heard."

HOW COOL IS THIS MARKETING?!?! Like the rebels are hacking into the capitol’s twitter!!!!

After I saw him in The Cripple of Inishmaan, I anxiously waited to meet Daniel Radcliffe at the stage door so I could get this card signed. Because I was toward the back of the crowd, I didn’t think Daniel would even notice the card, but I was very wrong. As soon as he caught sight of the card, Daniel started laughing. He then took the card and explained how he had wanted to sign one of the cards ever since he had found out about it and signed it with my Sharpie. Then he THANKED me for bringing it and took my phone and took a selfie with me. Needless to say, I was very happy.

I’m fairly sure the following conversation has happened between Suzanne Collins and James Dashner

Suzanne Collins: So its this dystopian world where this one organization controls everyone

James Dashner: but then there’s this one hero that is the only one that is the key to the revolution, but must first go through a series of tasks.. or trials

SC: Like a game! Right, and they seem to always be in the dark about what is going on around them -

JD: Yet everyone else seems to know more than the hero.

SC: and then there’s this character in the game with them that’s sort of like a little sister figure -

JD: - or little brother -

SC: And they are impaled horribly and unexpectedly and die in our hero’s arms -

JD: As a metaphor for loss of innocence! And incentive for our hero to take down the government

SC: exactly! And then there’s the love interest who’s in the game with them -

JD: but they can be controlled by the government and end up horribly betraying our hero against their will.

SC: So we introduce the rival love interest who is tactical in part of the rebellion

JD: And then there’s a series of secondary characters that we grow to love despite terrible traumas for our young friends. And there’s this one that’s just sort of always there as part of the team, one of the most loyal -

SC: Say a sandy haired, moderately tall, likeable guy

JD: Right, and he faces danger alongside our hero throughout the series, and you sort of take him for granted amongst everything …

SC: and then in the third act of the third book…

JD: wouldn’t it just be terrible…

SC: if something

JD: were

SC: to happen.

JD: ….

SC: ……

JD: ………

SC: ……

do you ever think about the judges for the triwizard tournament trying to figure out who to kidnap for the second task

like they’re all just sitting in dumbledore’s office and karkaroff goes “well word on the street says that krum has a crush on that granger girl”

"damn," says dumbledore, "I wanted harry to rescue her. well, what about the delightful miss chang?"

"no," says bagman, "we’ve got her down for diggory"

"stop sinking my ships," says dumbledore

tomatotaster:

That’s it. That’s literally all you need to know about band.
