Karl's Corner - 07/10/2001
....today was just about all "behind the scenes". Lots of meetings and phone calls and driving around. Tomorrow the video finally shoots for sure, I'll be shooting pictures and video for the website too, of course. Speaking of video, I will finally have some new custom video clips going soon, created from footage shot during both the Hooptie Tour and the Europe Tour. Thanks for waiting...

- "weezerfest2001 is definately taking place this saturday, july 14, at 3:00
- in grant park, in the fine city of chicago. if you like weezer and want to
- hang out with other people like you, please come. bring hackey saks,
- frisbees, stereos, and food. we're asking everyone to make a homemade cd to
- trade, but it is by no means necessary to do this. i have over 100 people
- saying they are coming, so i think it will be cool. you can dress up in
- craziness to show your weezer love, or bring guitars and write poems to
- share or whatever you want. it's just us hanging out making new friends. we
- might have a homemade tee shirt contest, with cookies as the prize, (and my
- respect) and it would be cool to bring rarities to trade. for more
- information check out www.geocities.com/morningkindergarten/ or email me
- firstname.lastname@example.org. i hope to see everyone there! (weezer will NOT be
- there. don't come hoping they will show up. it's not gonna happen)"

- was a complete success. There was a line of weezer fans around the block
- and the Sit 'n' Spin SOLD OUT! It is a reasonably small club but over 200
- people were there plus 10 bands.
- It could have been called "weezer b-sides night" all the bands were HUGE
- weezer fans and everyone had a great time. These songs were played.
- Undone (the sweater song)
- Buddy Holly
- Say it aint so
- (of course)
- Just threw out the love of my dreams
- Mykel and Carly
- Sweet Adeline
- I do
- New Wave Lullaby
- Too Late to Try
- Pink Triangle
- Why Bother
- Simple Pages
- Island in the Sun
- It was So much fun and there were tons of weezer fans there with the
- two-hand-weezer sign in the air.
