I went to see my old bandmate Weird Al last night at the Pacific Amphitheater. We have been exchangng e-mails lately talking about MLP:FiM. I used to play in Weird Al's band, and have toured and recorded with him. We are good friends. All the guys in the band too. My homies. Especially Kimo and Bermuda.

Gee, wouldn't Al be a good guest star for MLP:Fim? Wow, seems like such a natural fit, don't you agree?

My daughter was supposed to record me chatting with him after the show but forgot to hit record...

Well, until we started talking about MLP. I just posted that on my You Tube page...

I miss playing live.

Man those guys are GOOD and TIGHT and play like monsters. And Al sang and performed his butt off. And the show is REALLY REALLY good.

That would be... one of the most awesome cameos. Do this and suddenly, getting fellow nerds and/or Weird Al fans to join the brony community would be so much easier.

It's strange. I've heard quite some things from Weird Al here and there, but I actually don't know all that much about him...
Wish I could say more about this Journal post beyond what everyone else has already said.

Anyway, still slaving away at this drawing for you. Not going that quickly, admittedly. ^^;

Weird Al is a meticulous and demanding musician whose talent is often not fully appreciated because of his comedic genre. I'm impressed that you used to be a bandmate of his.

And yes, a Weird Al cameo on FiM would be epic, especially since he's so versatile. You could write that guy into *anything*.

Props to the tops, baby.

That is AMAZING. Everything. Everything. I have always Loved Weird Al since forever! I have all his albums! I don't need to say it, but I will anyway—you all are crazy talanted. And awesome.

Knowing that you performed in his band just makes you even more awesome, and I already held you in a pretty high esteem.

And if what you're suggesting is true...well, I think the fandom would explode from awesome. We'll see, huh? :D Oh GOSH! So exciting!! :D

Kidding aside, glad to hear you had a good time. I assume your daughter did as well?

And yes. Yes he would be a great guest star.

For as long as I can remember it has been my dream to preform a song with Weird Al in some fashion. It's so cool that you can hang out with him! And so fitting for him to be a brony. Or at least, for him to appreciate the show.

You should contact Hasbro. Weird Al should be on that show. no two ways about it.
Al's Agent should just call up Hasbro and be all "It's a natural fit."

I completely agree with everyone who said that it would be totally awesome to get Weird Al on the show but..

How do you come from 'playing in Weird Al's band' to 'making background music for a children's cartoon'? Just wondering a little, seems like a somewhat random change in career.

Let me answer your question with another question, why did Tara Strong voice act for a cute and adorable pony in a kids tv show then voice act for a horny highschool girl that slays zombies in a video game called lolipop chainsaw, thats something to think about
Reply
:iconmagrior:
Magrior Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2012
Well, I guess it is kind of known that Tara strong got into FiM because of a friend of hers, who happened to be Lauren Faust. Lauren asked Tara, Tara said yes, done.

Why did she voice a zombie-slaying high school girl? Well, I don't really know the answer to that, but she also voiced a racist princess in Drawn Together. And she said she likes it to sometimes voice a more "grown up" character. (As to how grown up Lollipop Chainsaw actually is is debatable.)

Still wondering about William Andersons decision though. And still, out of pure interest, nothing else.

Weird Al was my favorite musical artist growing up. In an ocean of whiny and angry garbage (the music that was popular when I was young), he was an island of comedic joy. I cannot think of a more perfect fit for MLP! Well, aside from you and Danny, of course. =)

I recall you saying that you were still a good friend of Al and the rest of his motley crew. Now we have some video proof! Mwahahahaha!


In all seriousness, yes, Al would be a great fit on the show, even if it was just a bit part. Al did do a bit of voice work in the past (The Squidhat from the Harry Potter parodies on Billy and Mandy), so this shouldn't be out of his comfort zone.
