...early praise:
"Music DVDs are so lame these days with no thought put into them whatsoever, they always just seem like a way to cash in on an artist, but the WEEZER DVD has a sense of purpose to it, it tells a story, and shows the history of such a great band. Thanks for the treasures...it's a wonderful piece!" --Miles "the intern" from Live105 radio, San Francisco.

...April SPIN mag (with Kurt Cobain on the cover) has a small DVD article with comments from yours truly, and a lead review on the Blue Deluxe edition CD.

...The next Rolling Stone mag (not the Ben Affleck one, but the one coming up next) should have reviews of both the DVD and Blue Deluxe.

...The new Entertainment Weekly magazine (Chris Rock cover) (subscription copies only!) has an article on the recent reconciliation and collaboration between Rivers and ex-weez bass player Matt Sharp.

...up in Seattle, this weekend is looking good! "107.7 The End is doing a Weezer Weekend complete with tons of tracks from the re-issued Blue CD as well as many of the associated b-sides, demos, garage recordings and more that were released around that time. Plus we'll be randomly giving away copies of the Blue CD and DVD re-issue on-air before it hits stores on Tuesday."
