Weezer – Riff Raff

Revival of the fittest.

I ripped Rivers demo of 80s Radio and put it up on the audio page. If you don’t know, Rivers has been working with fans on YouTube to put together a song. Well, the fans have been writing all the music, Rivers has just been choosing the best and putting them together. The mp3 is Rivers singing over taylor2d2’s treatment. The result turned out pretty good. We’ll see where it goes from here.

Speaking of the audio page, some media sites have been hotlinking my mp3s without asking permission or giving me credit. Even worse, they’re flash sites that just stream the audio, over and over. So I’ve set up some sort of protection using hash code tokens and javascript lightboxes. Let me know if anyone has any trouble downloading. The live shows aren’t protected at this point.

Which reminds me… I’ve uploaded my entire collection of live Weezer shows. It should include everything that was over at the Weezernation Live Archive, plus a few more. Look for that to go live sometime this summer… in some form. What I would really like is someone to take on the task of scripting something similar to the old Live ‘Chive. I don’t want to set up a Coppermine type since like they have over at weerez, and I don’t want to just have directories listed. If anyone is good with PHP, drop me a line. You will be rewarded.

In other news, the new album release date has been moved up to June 3rd!
