If you are seeing this, the joint server move, nameserver adjustment, and domain transfer was a success! Congratulations, cadet.

Check out the audio page for an good quality boot of the Coachella show. This is probably the best boot of the tour yet. More later.
If I screwed up a link, tell me and I’ll fix it. All the mp3s are there, though. No flac just for this show.

Note- It was bound to happen … I’ve run out of bandwidth on my media account!

A pinch of reflection in the sand.

The Electric Factory show from May 11, 2005 is now up on the audio page. If you want to trade this show, download the flac files here. Once again, downloading the torrent requires an account at dimeadozen.org.

Turnaround and speak to me.

The first New York show at Roseland Ballroom on May 11th is now available here (flac, requires registration at dimeadozen.org) or here (mp3). The sound is quite acceptable. The bass is a bit soft, but everything else is pretty strong. You need to know how to use bittorrent and flac to even bother downloading the lossless files.
You can also get the Toronto, ON show from May 6th here (flac) or here (mp3).

Now, if you download the mp3 versions DO NOT trade them without informing your partner that they’re mp3 sourced, and there are lossless versions available. Better yet, don’t trade them!

trip report: weezer at avalon boston 5/8/05

I just got back from seeing the band perform tonight, and let me tell you, it was awesome. Ringside was ok, kind of unique but kind of boring at the same time. Weezer was awesome. They started with Tired Of Sex, which shredded quite hard. All of the new stuff was very mehhh except for “This Is Such A Pity”, which was awesome, and “We Are All On Drugs”, which made me throw up in my mouth. For those not familiar (probably most of you), the avalon is a pretty small club in boston, right behind fenway. It fits maybe around 2000 people _very_ snuggly. The weather outside was shite, so I spent my free time before the show began in mcdonalds instead of in line. The second I walked through the door and laid eyes on the golden arches, I was accosted by a man looking for weezer tickets. When I told him that I didn’t have any extras, he then asked if I wanted to buy red sox tickets. Ticket scalpers are the official scum of the universe. I might at this time mention that I spent the entire night fearing that my car would be towed/booted, because I was parked in an MBTA paid lot, but there was nobody to pay the money to. Today was a crazy day, because there were two red sox games; one was originally scheduled for today, and the other was postponed from yesterday until today. As a result, there was absolutely no parking in the city. We drove in and parked north of boston, and took the subway the rest of the way. But alas, I digress. We (me and three comrades) hadn’t been inside five minutes before ringside came on. As I mentioned, they were mediocre at best. The weezer merchandise was outrageously expensive; t-shirts were 25, a weezer polo shirt was 40, and hoodies were 60. Needless to say, I didnt get the “Weezer: rocking the bitched since 1994” shirt that I wanted. It’s probably for the better though, since the band has been around since 1992 so the shirt doesn’t make sense anyways. Anyhow, weezer came on after ringside was done, and played a great set. Not a single song from maladroit was played; perhaps they have come to terms with the fact that that album blows. I saw karl sitting in the sound area playing on his laptop, but I didn’t say hi because he had his headphones on. Rivers is the least animated musician I have ever seem. He just stands there, leaned at this bizarre angle, tipped backwards sort of. It is odd. Anyways, when the show was over, we went to store24 and I proceeded to drink a whole 2 litre soda. Then I went home and wrote this. Wow I hope someone reads this because my wrist hurts from typing.

Red eyes instead of red roses.
