The Weezer boards in 2001 must have been a bunch of guys certain the good times would never end, like a pack of Russian aristocrats.

I think I joined in 2003. Around the time of the internet cannibal case.

I mean they've maintained a decently consistent level of popularity and have fluke successful single every 5 or so years and tour regularly. So that's a pretty good outcome.

I remember the discussions people obsessed over were, "If Rivers only starts playing guitar solos, they'll be as good as Blue and Pinkerton again." Or, "If Rivers only started writing about his life again, they'll be as good as Blue and Pinkerton again." He subsequently did both and they were never as good as Blue or Pinkerton again. Coming to terms with that took awhile.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Yet also wastes them. What a paradox!

He was or is on the Bruce one. It's a pretty busy one relative to here, so I don't think we've ever interacted and I don't know if he has recognized me.

Couldn't resist to google him. Turns out he's super active on FB, still going on about Bruce and Proud Larry's..

Yep. Seems he immediately stopped shaving after he left here.

Well, the important thing is he left.

(I remember Inder telling me an April Fool's gag he thought of was having Chico triumphantly return, then sitting back to watch the consternation and chaos.)
