"Weird Al" Yankovic's new parody album "Mandatory Fun" has a music video for the grammarian in all of us. He spins "Word Crimes" to the tune of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines."
Attention pop stars: If "Weird Al" Yankovic shows up at your concert or has tracked down your personal email address, you're likely his next parody conquest.
Such was the case for artists like Pharrell and Iggy Azalea, who are covered by Yankovic in his latest album, "Mandatory Fun."
For his 14th studio effort, released last week, Yankovic had his heart set on Williams' No. 1 smash "Happy." When he didn't hear back from Pharrell's camp, he decided to go straight to the source.
In a story July 17 about the death of Texas blues legend Johnny Winter, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Winter's last performance was on July 12 at the Lovely Days Festival in Wiesen, Austria. His last performance was on July 14 at the Cahors Blues Festival in southwestern France, not July 12 in Austria.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Blues legend Johnny Winter dies at 70 in Zurich
It has been four years since Chubby Carrier brought his accordion-laced dance party of a live show to Wichita, and he’s feeling it.
“I’ve been missing my fans in Wichita,” Carrier said during a phone interview earlier this week from his home in Lafayette, La. “It’s going to be an honor to get back there and see everybody.”
Until 2010, Carrier and his Bayou Swamp Band came to Wichita at least once a year, if not more often. They were at the now-closed Roadhouse in 2006. They played the Sedgwick County Zoo’s summer concert series in 2007, then headlined Zoobilee in 2008. They played both the zoo and the Wichita River Festival in 2009, then made a return appearance at the zoo in 2010.
