Weezer calling it quits... again. apparently Rivers is too good for the band now that he graduated from Harvard.
"I've been writing a lot. I don't know what'll happen with these songs — if anything — I just sort of write them and I can't stop. I certainly don't see them becoming Weezer songs, and I don't really see the point of a solo career. ... The band is all back in Los Angeles, and I sometimes I speak with Patrick, and I occasionally e-mail with Brian and Scott, but we've never mentioned getting together. Really, for the moment, we are done."
interesting. the solo career bit? that's because he's a neurotic bastard that couldn't hold stardom on his own. the fact that they made it big on MTV and made it onto the playlists of every Laguna Beach wannabe is the irony and demise of nerd rock in itself; he was meant to sit in his room, only lit by the glow of his computer, and hack into things.
too bad they had to ride out on Make Believe, but because they did, i'm finding it reeeeeally hard to give a shit. so much so, that i'm surprised i made a post on it.
don't worry, it took me thirty seconds.
