What are the most interesting, fun, unusual, ridiculous, bombastic, affentoll, and/or funkadelic ways to learn a language?

I've always been interested in languages, and they older I get, the more languages I want to learn. Unfortunately, rote methods of learning are bringing me down.
What are some interesting language learning methods you've come across?
Here are two examples of what I mean:
1) When I hurt my ankle, I saw that a strengthening exercise was to write the alphabet with your feet. I practiced writing kanji for a while, then switched over to connected Arabic script.
2) I fall asleep to German radio so that I hear German in my mid-morning hypnagogic haze.
Even if your method isn't that weird or unusual or funkadelic, I'd love to hear about it. Self-teaching methods are prefered, but I'll take anything. Anecdotes appreciated.
Merci, danke, gracias, and all that jazz.
