I suppose that everyone needs to get to this point with Weezer eventually. This is the point where you want to shake Rivers Cuomo, where you want to tell him to wake up, he’s not 22 anymore, there’s more to life than girls and bands and girls in bands. There’s more he can do, there’s so much more he can say, there are more chords on the guitar than the four he keeps playing over and over, there are quite literally an infinite number of melodies out there to explore. “Rivers,” you’d say, “you have so much talent in you. You have so much to offer the world. You could be doing great things.
“So what the hell is this?”
