From the Wiki article: "To help promote Mandatory Fun in social media circles, Yankovic produced eight music videos for the album; one was revealed each day starting on July 14, 2014, a day prior to the album's release. Yankovic commented that 'there is no more music television' as there was in the past, and that 'the Internet [...] is the new MTV' that operates continuously. He took the idea that promoting a new video for eight continuous days 'would make an impact because people would be talking about the album all week long.' [...] The music video aspect of Yankovic's songs had been a past part of his success, but for Mandatory Fun RCA Records opted not to fund production of any videos. Instead, Yankovic turned to various social media portals including Funny or Die and CollegeHumor which he had worked with in the past; these sites helped to cover the production costs to allow Yankovic to make the videos with Yankovic foregoing any ad revenue from the videos. Yankovic chose to... more... - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet

Produced by Nerdist Industries, the one-shot video features Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal, Jack Black, and Yankovic dressed in tacky clothes and dancing purposely poorly while lip-synching to the song reflecting on the song's lyrics about a person who brags on about his obnoxious... more... - Stephen Mack

I haven't watched that one yet. :) Tonight! - Stephen Mack
The big downside to his strategy of peppering his eight videos across different sites is that it's tough to find them all. Yesterday I was at a friend's house and we were searching YouTube (via the TiVo app) trying to watch them all, and missed half of them. It'll also be interesting to see if some of the better videos don't get as many views because of which account or site was used to post/promote, or if some of the more marginal videos get more views because of the traffic of the originating site. - Stephen Mack
labels (not just RCA) refusing to bankroll promotional stuff is a pretty common occurrence. has been for ages and ages. they sure want a cut of any profits made, tho! #LittleRedHen - Big Joe Silence

Random fact: there is no Canadian word for 'bin'. The receptacle and contents are both referred to as 'garbage'. So it's fine to say "I'll put this in the garbage." #extractfromNoBearsinEngland - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

The salad I ate is making my teeth feel weird. I'm going home, man. See if I can process some of these butterfly photos. 😊 #bigbootyinsects

Butterflies never sleep. In a way that makes me sad. They inspire so many dreams in us it seems unfair that they themselves can't dream too.
Well, they kind of sleep once :D - Victor Ganata
Butterflies (like other insects) may go into diapause over the winter or torpor on cold nights, and that's sort of like sleep. Probably not enough like sleep to dream, though. - John (bird whisperer)

We got to the after party (after the company summer party) at a bar and my friend and I fell down while hugging. We got a talking to and it was all good. No one was mean or anything. Then my friend fell down again. While I admit that wasn't ok it wasn't the worst thing in the world. She was specifically asked to leave. It was mean, direct, and aggressive. I felt my friend was zeroed out... more... - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
We left, came back inside to use the restroom, asked to leave again. A higher up coworker tried to also stand up for us but the woman kicking us out was basically being a drunk bitch wielding power. I told her point blank I was going to talk to HR. Finally we left for good. We never made a scene, we never cried, we simply walked out. Entire dev team that was there at the time walked out (three of us at this point). - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

It occurs to me that one of the consequences of climate change is that eventually it will be unsafe to stay outside because of the swarms of mosquitoes carrying untreatable diseases that used to be considered tropical. This will force people to stay inside and run their A/C, increasing CO2 emissions even more. #doomed
Chikungunya is here now http://www.pbs.org/wgbh... West Nile virus has been here for a while. Surely it's only a matter of time until we start getting dengue and yellow fever and malaria. - Victor Ganata
Oh. I guess dengue *is* already here, too. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article... - Victor Ganata
Could Yellow Fever Return to the United States? - PLOS Blogs - 2013 Dec 5 http://blogs.plos.org/speakin... - Victor Ganata
Yeah, I expect we'll see more of tropical diseases and the tropical insects that carry them in the near future. And people will need to take extra precautions, whether that means spending more time indoors or covering up more outdoors. - John (bird whisperer)
Even without the mosquitoes I feared that rising heat would mean people would just crank the AC and make it worse. And until I can get my ass out of SoCal, I have to admit I'm grateful for AC. - Spidra Webster
Also, more people at northern latitudes will use AC because their climate will be warmer more frequently. - John (bird whisperer)
Oh, most definitely, the heat itself will drive A/C use, but I'm especially thinking of all those days where just leaving the windows open would probably be sufficient, but you can't leave the windows open because you don't want to get drug-resistant malaria. - Victor Ganata
Window screens are pretty effective at keeping insects out. Not 100% effective since they sometimes have larger holes or gaps around the edges, but they keep out most things. (I know not all buildings have them, though.) - John (bird whisperer)
I get the feeling that you'll see a lot more efficient screens crop up as well. Heck, even mosquito netting around beds is pretty effective. - Jennifer Dittrich
Sure, mosquito netting is effective in cutting down transmission, but you get out of bed sometime. Or not. :D - Victor Ganata
I guess there will be a market in mosquito-proof window screens. Although that still doesn't solve the problem I'll have while car camping... I was afraid to car camp in Winters this time due to West Nile. Not terrified, but it definitely weighed in my reluctance to do it. - Spidra Webster
Yeah, it's going to be more reluctance than panic, but I feel certain that the increasing incidence of mosquito-borne illness will change people's behaviors. - Victor Ganata
Are they starting to offer continuing ed workshops to med personnel here to let them know what to spot and what to do, assuming that they're unfamiliar with these diseases? - Spidra Webster
There are CME classes for tropical medicine, but I think we mostly rely on CDC alerts and the medical literature to get up to speed. On one hand, we'll be seeing things that most of us haven't thought about since med school. On the other hand, most of these things are totally untreatable, so all you can really do is supportive care anyway. - Victor Ganata
Gah. They're all incurable? :( - Spidra Webster
Yeah, they're all mostly viral illness. But that also means most of them are actually self-limited and will eventually go away, but you can be sick for a very long time, and they can have very debilitating after effects. The only one of the ones I mentioned that has a treatment is malaria, but antimalarials have become steadily less effective due to drug resistance. - Victor Ganata
Fuck, I left the car vent windows open at sunset and now there's a mosquito in the car. Gah! - Spidra Webster
