Does Weezer + Spike Jonze = Publicity????????? Long Long Long Long Long Long Long Long Gone Are The Matt Sharp Powered Glory Days of The Weeze.

It’s been 12 years since Weezer released an album actually worth listening to.

Now – after 14 years – it is time to create some nostalgia about the nostalgia that originally popularized that Weezer/Buddy Holly/Happy Days/Spike Jonze blissful glee that took the MTV Music Video Awards/the early 90s alt/indie crowd by storm.

I once saw Weezer open for No Doubt, I think that was in ’95… oh the good ‘ol 90s.

So the new Spike Jonze/Weezer video will be to some song called “The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived.” I haven’t heard the song before but I presume it is a story about Rivers Cuomo – although it would seem a lot more fitting for Rivers to be writing the song about Matt Sharp.

Anyhow, just can’t wait to watch Spike’s new video on mute – it’s like that time when I was a teen and my BFF hosted a Grade 7 News Year’s Party where we put MTV/MUCH MUSIC on mute, played our own music, and got our adolescent freak on with the images of a young unadulterated Britney Spears running through our minds.

Listening to Now:

Conor Oberst Gentleman’s Pact EP (2008). Has anyone started to notice the Emo World growing more and more alt country alongside Conor Oberst???  Don’t you just love watching an emo/alt country kid’s dye-stained-bangs flap up and down in rhythm with a stomping foot, clapping hands, and bandana-neck-tie?

Deerhunter Weird Era Cont (2008).  I wonder if this bonus Deerhunter album would have been included in the physical release had Microcastle not been leaked over 6 months before release???
