Tuesdayitis: Weird Al's Tacky

There’s a new Weird Al album on the way, and a new Weird Al video every day for the next eight days.

The new album, Mandatory Fun is out on the 15th (in the US), and iTunes indicates to me that it’ll launch here on the 18th.
One minor worry, though is that this is apparently the last album of Weird Al’s current contract — and it might be his last. In an NPR interview, he stated that:
“I wanted to really do what is ostensibly my last album with a big splash. I wanted the first week to be big; I wanted every single day of release week to be an event. I wanted a video to go viral for an entire day and have people talking about that video, and then the next day they’re talking about a new video. I just thought that would be a really fun way to do it, to make a big deal out of release week.”
Ostensibly. Hmm. Here’s hoping. A single Weird Al song every once in a while just wouldn’t be the same.
Tuesdayitis features aren’t particularly serious. Did that really need explaining?
