KROQ has been spinning the new single, Pork and Beans, lately. It was also streaming on the newly redesigned .com recently. Check out the audio page for the La Riots remix of Automatic, ripped from the Gran Turismo intro by Prezhulio. That’s Pat on the vox.

Check out amazon.com for a clip of the new single “Pork and Beans.” That’s a pretty nasty sound going into the chorus. Moog synthesizer? The self titled album is tentatively slated for release June 17th 24th.

Update from the current date.

Check out the video page for some new stuff. There’s a 2005 interview on T-Minus Rock. Subjects include the fate of the band’s MTV Moonman and Karl. I also put up the first two tracks of the boxing ring Philly show from 2001. I’m not sure when I’ll get the rest up unless its in Quicktime format since I’ve entered the world of the Apple. MPEG 1 is a pain to encode these days.
In other news, I lost your email coloredvinyl, talk to me martin -at- weezed -dawt- com.

Hey everybody. A pretty unique situation has presented itself to me recently…
An bootleg trader from the past has come out of the woodwork and offered me his massive collection of Weezer bootlegs. I traded with him once before (thats where most of the unreleased pre-2001 bootlegs I’ve posted came from), but now he just wants to unload everything. His interest in both Weezer and bootleg traded have waned away to nothing.

This is where you come in… He would like to recoup some of the costs associated with building this collection, which is mostly the huge amount of money spent on postage, packaging, and compact discs. I’m not about to drop a bunch of cash on Weezer bootlegs while I’m in the middle of college, but if you want to help this collection see the light of day leave a comment here or email me at martin_AT_weezed_DOT_com.

NO this is not paying for bootlegs, its more like paying him back for postage and CD-Rs. There are over 75 shows in this collection, many of which have never been released. If somebody else ends up with the collection it will probably stay that way, too.
I’ll see if I can get a list of the shows, but I want to gauge interest before I spend time and effort coordinating this.

Karl finally give us some new A/V and posted a video scrapbook of the 2005 tour. Most, if not all, is the Summersonic Fest in Japan. Download on the video page.

In other Weezer news, Rivers has finally gotten married. Congratulations Rivers.
MTV.com has reported (again) that Weezer might be breaking up, but Pat has denied it and Rivers has since said on his Myspace that the quotes were taken out of context. He also has said he has no plans for a solo career. Too bad. Maybe that will change when Weezer actually does call it quits.

Pat is posting like crazy over at tsg.com and also sporting a new web design. Good job Pat.
Brian is current working on a new side project (not Space Twins related), but not much information has been released.
Scott married back in November ’05, but his current happenings are unknown to me.

Check out this person’s livejournal entry with pics from the Nashville show… http://www.livejournal.com/users/branbran/109737.html#cutid1. There are some really great photos there, good job. Also, what camera did you use? I want a Nikon D70, so… uh… if you’ve got an extra one…

Apparently Much Music has Weezer’s new video for “We Are All On Drugs”. Check it out at their site! The rare footage was salvaged from the 80s metal band Grim Reaper. Hah!

Number 12 in Blender’s “20 Songs You Must Download This Month”. They must know something we don’t…

Also, Weezer is playing with the Red Hot Chili Peppers in Las Vegas. Free for the first 50,000 to ask for tickets! Cool. More summer tour dates are to come, I hear.

Someone got hold of a promo CD today and shared mp3s with the world. You can try to find a working link in this thread at the .com bboard. I must say that after hearing a good quality version of the song, my opinion of it has improved greatly. Pretty good guitar and drum sound, I think. And the drumroll… hahahaha oh Weezer.

No need for a Uhaul, these days.
