I’m reviewing everything like this from now on.
When I ask you if I should see a movie or listen to something or read something, please describe it in this way.
There are certain people who come into your life, and leave a mark…Their place in your heart is tender; a bruise of longing, a pulse of unfinished business. Just hearing their names pushes and pulls at you in a hundred ways, and when you try to define those hundred ways, describe them even to yourself, words are useless.

I was at Toad’s Place sometime during college. Weezer was playing. And as I was underage, I was crammed in that little corner they used to have. It was ridiculous. At one point, my friend and I went up front and left because somehow the crowd that moshing to Weezer made sense. It doesn’t.
Weezer was one of the first bands I “discovered” on my own. Up until that point, my brothers had introduced me to whatever music I listened to. But Weezer. They were a band I introduced to my brother. It was kind of a proud moment. I chose Weezer today because, well, I love them. And I chose Pinkerton because this album is rather incredible. It’s one of those moments in music that caused us nerds to flip out. And this week Weezer has released a new album. I assumed a few years back that regardless of quality I would always buy Weezer albums. Because, it was Weezer. And they were special to me. But, I haven’t bought the past couple albums. There is, just, nothing. And this new one … I nearly cried. It was just ……not good. This band that I adored for years was letting me down. Is letting me down. So, “The Good Life.” It’s incredible. And it was a moment in time that is now over. Enjoy.
