Village Voice Talks With 'Weird Al'

I always knew "Weird Al" Yankovic was cool, but I never thought the Village Voice would stoop to giving major play to an artist without a pierced navel, freaky tattoos and bizarre nocturnal habits. (Of course, maybe Al's got all that good stuff.) But Al's Straight Outta Lynwood CD/DVD busted out in the Billboard Top 10, so it's time he gets his due in the alternative press. Or something.

Best quote in the amusing Q&A: "It's hard to have street cred when you play the accordion."

P.S. Don't miss the accompanying "think piece" about Al, which dares to dub him a "genius." Right on.
