...message from a far flung land: "...the music of Weezer is being spread throughout the Middle East! My friend and fellow Weezer enthusiast, Ryan, is currently stationed in Kuwait for military duty. He works hard through the long hours in the heat, and when his day of work is completed he relaxes to the sounds of Weezer, sharing the =W= magic with his fellow countrymen. Ryan has proved to be a dedicated ambassador of both our country and of Weezer. Before his tour of duty he spread the music of Weezer to many across his home state of Wisconsin. I hope we can publish this message on the Weezer site to honor Ryan and all of those individuals in the military for their faithful service to our country. Ryan continues to honorably serve his country and spread the music of Weezer in the process. The band should be proud to have such a fan, rockin out diligently in the Middle East!" ---Dave
