Weezer Snuggie part 2

Now they're making a Weezer branded Snuggie. They have become suck incarnate. Every specific thing that is bad about music and the music industry is now being worn like a merit badge on the many bemerit-badged shitsash that is Weezer. Pretentious? check. Overhyped? check. Commercialized to the point of glorified infomercial? check.

You Hear That, Weezer? You're an infomercial now.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but when will the Onion write a bad joke? Seriously, guys. You're making the rest of us look bad.

Also, OK Computer changed my life. Thought you should know.

Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Put On A Snuggie...

Weezer, like the raw pestilence that they are, fucking ruined it for you.

Hey guys, let's promote our new tour with a press conference where we wear snuggies! It'll be goofy AND cultural!

New Dredg


I've heard grumblings from a few people about the new album, but fear not: they are wrong and this album is fucking awesome. I feel as though their sonic and stylistic repertoire is expanding, and that's what's making people who worshipped at the throne of El Cielo and then Judas'd Catch Without Arms (which is actually a ridiculously solid album when you analyze it track by track) so very uncomfortable. (I apologize for the length of that sentence)

Anyways, this album has just a thousand new sounds, and i've been having an absolute ball picking it all apart. I wouldn't recommend it to all of you out in internarnia, but for some it will hold a great cascade of delights.

Also, note the drummer playing piano in the video and the wrench on the pedal steel. bodacious.
