Amazing story! Can’t believe you got stood up at a show! Really sheds new light on this up and coming band!
Please cover every tiny tidbit of information surrounding the new Weezer album (as they are on a hott streak), as well as any and all news regarding Weezer cover bands. Thank you.
“I forgot that Scott McKenzie’s countercultural anthem “San Francisco” existed but now that I remember, I really hope that Mad Men makes use of it during its final season next year — maybe to accompany Sally’s inevitable embrace of her inner flower power and her escape out west?”
What an interesting way to start a post, sharing some HIGHLY RELEVANT facts about how you forgot a song (strong music journalism!), and then VERY RELEVANTLY tying it in to some TV show you like. Then punting completely on commenting on the song at all. In the least. (It’s not bad!) Very good writing. Solid.
Here’s hoping it’s written by someone with something more interesting and intelligent to say about it.
“We, in the media, collectively licked our chos, becaue how great would it be to see Nicki just rip a hole in Iggy’s soul?”
Ha ha ha. Ha? Ha? What?
Finally, a long hard look by blogger with an aka at her memories and personal experiences about an album and band that have already largely passed from the collective consciousness and left little of lasting value in their wake.
“If you’re a Metallica fan and you’re not enjoying this moment in their career, you’re absolutely robbing yourself of some unexpected, sublime joy.”
Pretty sure there’s room for disagreement there, but you’re a blogger on an indie music site, so I guess you’re the expert.
Yeah, it’s a pretty solid list of 10 John Lennon songs. No argument there.
Although it would be nice if they had literally anything interesting to say about it — this reads like a freshman essay cribbed mostly from Wikipedia.
“… but that’s the value in puzzling over history from time to time.” It’s just an album that came out two decades ago. It happens a lot and is almost never meaningful. There’s no perspective or thoughtfulness or revelations of context. Just content for the sake of content. Zzz.
