OK so you can hear a short clip of Weezer's new song "Pork & Beans" and everyone is goin nutso crazy saying how they're so excited that it sounds like Pinkerton. I want to know if these people own Pinkerton or just know they're supposed to say that's Weezer's best album. Sure, the guitar tones are thick and fuzzy and it's sounding more stripped down than the more recent albums, but the melody is severely lacking any resemblance to a Pinkerton era Weezer. Same with the lyrics, which I understand is going to be so since Rivers has much changed his outlook on songwriting. It sounds more like a Green album song so far but recorded the way they did the Blue album and Pinkerton. C'mon though, this only reminded me of Pinkerton for a split second. And there is so much of the song we are not hearing yet, the little bit of verse leading into this does not sound like something I want to have anything to do with. I guess I'm just pessimistic because their last three albums have gotten progressively worse and worse. We'll see, for now though I am very unimpressed.

I know I've been MIA since February. Whups. Anyway I wanted to share with all none of my readers the awesomeness of Great Used Bikes.com. I needed to upgrade from my old 3 speed cruiser (click that link, I'm selling it) to a more suitable bike for interborough travel. I ended up landing a lovely 10 speed Schwinn World Sport road bike for only $200 from GreatUsedBikes.com. I actually just got it this morning, and have been loving the hell outta it. I highly recommend them if you're looking for a good reliable bike at a good price. They are extremely helpful and informative and even deliver right to your apartment. Check out the site, great selection of road bikes and cruisers and all affordable. That being said, who's up for a ride to Coney Island?
