I'm e-famous!
There is a weekly technical podcast put out by the staff of the magazine Maximum PC, and they are having a contest right now where you can "Win A Dream Date With [Associate Editor] Dave Murphy."

The "date" itself would be Dave leading the winner through a tour of the Maximum PC facility, followed by lunch at In N Out burger. They have gone so far as to say it is not really a date; it's just a good geek hangout day.

So I went ahead and rewrote the lyrics a Weird Al Yankovic song, "Melanie", for this Dave Murphy guy, and then edited Al's original song, pulling the lyrics, then singing over them myself.

The reason I mention this to you at all: It got mentioned on the next podcast. You can download the full podcast at http://dl.maximumpc.com/maxpc_035_20070921.mp3 , then skip to 2:04 for the explanation of the contest, followed by my submission.

EDIT: I have redone the song. If you want to hear the new version, download http://rapidshare.com/files/57533073/Murphy.mp3 .

Weird Al will be in concert in several US cities later this year. Check for your city at http://www.weirdal.com/touring.htm

For those on the Sacramento list I am cross-posting to, he's coming to Sacramento at the California State Fair on September 3, looks like towards the end of the fair, so set that Monday night aside, and get yourself a close, personal friend!

Only Four Days To Go!!
With only four days to go The Weird Al Star fund is so close to the goal of $15,000 we can taste it. We need just under $2,000 and a very generous person has started a web-athon, where if we can raise $950 he will match it dollar-for-dollar which will make the $1900 to get us to our target

the web-athon can be found at http://www.weirdalforum.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=789&st=1472

The Make The Rock Hall "Weird" and The "Weird Al" Star Fund Campaigns
I don't know if you guys know about these campaigns, so here's some info....

The 'Make The Rock Hall "Weird"' campaign is a grassroots campaign to get Al inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We are currently circulating a petition with an aim of 10,000+ signatures. The petiton has been signed by Leslie Neilson, the cast and crew of 'SpongeBob' and Emo Philips, just to name a few celebrites. For more info go to www.allthingsyank.com/rockhall

The "Weird Al" Star Fund is another grassroots campaign, aiming to raise the $15,000 needed to get Al a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. A lot of celebrities get their record comapnies etc. to buy them stars, but we believe that a star should come from the fans. With less than two weeks to go until this years deadline, the Star Fund needs $3,000. The Star Fund accepts donations, or you can buy merchandise [although less money goes to the fund this way]. For more info go to www.weirdalstar.com

Note: Al does know about both of these campaigns, but they are purely fan-driven
