So I had some fascinating, educational, and inspirational videos to show you this month. Then my daughter showed me a music video, and really, there isn’t anything else you need to see. My son Luke, who always does his picks, agreed that this month should be dedicated to the Master of Geek Music: Weird Al. So here are a few of his videos that came out this week:

First, is the best of the bunch: “Word Crimes.” BRILLIANT. Teachers: Make your students memorize this for extra credit. My daughter clapped when he mentioned how people use “literally” incorrectly. This drives her nuts. Thanks, Al!



Next up is “Tacky.” (“At a funeral, taking selfies with the deceased.”)



Then, there’s “Foil.” Hee-hee. The way he draws out the sheet of foil is so silly. I’ll be singing this all day.



“Sports Song” is on his website, so check that out too. And I bet there will be more coming. Ever since “I’m A Danish,” I have been a big fan of his. The guy is a lyrical genius, and happens to have put his talent into making people laugh for decades. That’s reason enough to dedicate this month to him. Go Al!

Rebecca Angel was one of those kids that put the dragon book on top of her pile in the hopes that someone would say, "Hey, I'm into that stuff too!" Alas, she had to wait until she was an adult to find fellow geeks. Luckily, she married one and their kids are too. A music teacher by day, Rebecca is also a lover of tea, science literacy, funky tights, RPGs, anime, manga, comics, fantasy books and movies.
