Dish_Diva says: Please join us in welcoming Patrick Wilson and Weezer authority Karl Koch.
Weezer_Live says: Pat: Hi! This is really fantastic technology we're using right now.
Weezer_Live says: Karl: As the Weezer authority, I'm giving you all a ticket. I'm glad we're all here and it works.
---393 in Onstage_1 asks: Hi PAT, I'm wondering how much of the DVD coming out consists of live footage like concerts? THANKS! WEEZER RULES NO MATTER WHAT!
Weezer_Live says: Pat: I think there's 4 or 5 songs on there that are live.
peri_pheral37 in Onstage_1 asks: What's in your CD player right now?
Weezer_Live says: Karl: In my CD player right now is a CD by Serge Gainsborg and the name of the album is "Aux Armes Etcactera."
Weezer_Live says: Pat: In my CD player I have a version of Windows Longhorn version 4053, but mostly I've been listening to this CD by this artist Musiq which is French for Music.
-___--Neil--___- in Onstage_1 asks: For Kool Karl and Phat Pat : What was your first impression of Rivers as a person, friend and as a coworker, and how have your feelings changed (if at all) ?
Weezer_Live says: Pat: I met Rivers when he was working at Tower Records on Sunset Blvd. He had big hair and he had a lot of technical ability with his guitar. (laughs) and he seemed nice.
Weezer_Live says: Karl: ... and he keeps pizza crusts in his fanny pack and he would pull it out and take a bite and then put it back.
Weezer_Live says: Pat: And I noticed we had a shared admiration for NASA and shared a lot of Hubbel telescope pictures with each other. And we basically avoided each other ever since. (laughs) Ha ha ha.
Weezer_Live says: Karl: When I first met Rivers he didn't really notice me at all, but it wasn't his fault, he was frantically moving at the time. Ever since then it's been a vacilating friendship between buddy/buddy and business like environment. Every six months seems to
Weezer_Live says: be a new phase.

►Guide_MarkG has joined the conversation.

Trishgt1 in Onstage_1 asks: Hi guys How did you two meet ?
Weezer_Live says: Pat: I met Karl in Buffalo through our mutual friend and we started fooling around on the drum machine, I remember.
Weezer_Live says: Karl: We went to past place of work, which was a drum shop or music store, and Pat was finishing a lesson with some kid, and Pat flashed him (Laughs/ Kidding). I remember walking around Buffalo looking for something to do and we found a horrible bar and
Weezer_Live says: it wasn't fun so we left, that's how I met Pat. (laughs)
ytanen in Onstage_1 asks: While working in the studio with Rubin, I'm sure you put in some long hours. To relax, do you guys ever take bubblebaths together?
Weezer_Live says: Karl: I said Slapped not Flashed.
Weezer_Live says: Karl: That's not right. (laughs)
Weezer_Live says: Pat: I like to wear a halter top when I'm sad in the bubble bath with a parasol singing a song about NASA.
USSpinkerton06 in Onstage_1 asks: Pat and Karl, what's your favorite Weezer songs?
Weezer_Live says: Pat: We don't do any of my favorite songs. My favorite song is one we don't do and it's called "Somnabulist Delight."
Weezer_Live says: Karl: I'll just rattle off a couple favorites, I guess. You got "Say It Ain't So" and...
Weezer_Live says: Pat: "Beefers Soul"
Weezer_Live says: Beefers Foul
Weezer_Live says: Karl: Another song I like a lot, I've always liked "Falling For You."
wepeelgeekrock in Onstage_1 asks: Pat, you mentioned that you wanted a stalker so you could "Be just like Rivers" How is your quest to get a stalker going?
Weezer_Live says: Pat: Well, I have several candidates and I'm going to start my own reality show and compete against each other to become the "Prime Stalker" that'll be the name of the show.
BionicTimo14 in Onstage_1 asks: Pat: whats it like to be in a "Super documented" band *points at karl*
Weezer_Live says: Pat: It's horrible! Just kidding. It's really great.
orientalmikey in Onstage_1 asks: When you are in the spotlight, does it bother you that people want to ask about Rivers all the time?
Weezer_Live says: Pat: No. And there's no such place as the Orient.
foolicooli in Onstage_1 asks: During the recording of hashpipe, were there any effects used to make rivers voice sound better on the verses of Hash Pipe?
Weezer_Live says: Pat: I don't think so. I don't remember anything going on. I like "Hashpipe" is my favorite Weezer song, by far. I don't think it's Rivers, I don't think he likes it because he doesn't think the lyrics mean anything but it's our best song. If we could
Weezer_Live says: have more songs like "Hashpipe" I'd be happy.
TheLineBetweenGood_Evil in Onstage_1 asks: What do u think of most rock groups today?
Weezer_Live says: Pat: I think they walk a line between good and evil.
Weezer_Live says: Karl: Where as I feel they walk a line between evil and good.
Weezer_Live says: Pat: I think Al Qaeda is forming a rock band.
Weezer_Live says: Pat: I'm glad that bands such as The White Stripes have started to immerge and people actually care about them.
kingcheese4 in Onstage_1 asks: I must ask the gods of rock: what are you favorite pieces of music equipment?
Weezer_Live says: Pat: RIght now my favorite piece of equipment is my Tone King Comet 20 watt Amp. Then after that a Juice Harp.
Weezer_Live says: Karl: My all time favorite would have to be Unibox Mini Korg Synthesizer.
dumpdevil6669 in Onstage_1 asks: In you're opinion, what is the coolest thing off of the new DVD?
Weezer_Live says: Pat: I think it's me. I'm the coolest thing on the DVD and Karl is also the coolest thing on the DVD.
Weezer_Live says: Pat: You've got tenacious computer skills, Dumpdevil.
Weezer_Live says: Karl: The coolness is that it is all in one place, that's the main cool thing for me.
iLOVEweezerROCK in Onstage_1 asks: what is the best advice you would give to someone like me who is an aspiring musician?
Weezer_Live says: Pat: I would say you should focus on the love and use tai chi or Judo to put the flim flam on the hate.
Weezer_Live says: Karl: If you are writing songs, write 100,000 more songs than you think you need to.
Punition-De-Chevre in Onstage_1 asks: Karl, what camera do you use for the photos you take of the band for the website?
Weezer_Live says: Karl: That is an Olympus C-4040 a very nice digital camera that will be out of date in 6 months.
Weezer_Live says: Pat: That's a lie!
Weezer_Live says: Pat: What Karl really is is a miniature version of a retracting telescope that he stole from the Kek Observatory.
Dish_Diva says: Guys this has been the funniest chat i have interviewed in years I am still laughing
Dish_Diva says: Patrick, Karl, that's all the time we have for today. Thanks for joining Weezer fans around the world to talk about "The Blue Album Deluxe Edition" and the new DVD "Video Capture Device."
Dish_Diva says: Run out and get your DVD copy NOW
Weezer_Live says: Pat: Weezer fans are the best fans. Other bands fans are not as good because we have the best fans and that makes the other band fans worse.
Weezer_Live says: Pat: Because our fans are the best.
Weezer_Live says: Karl: Anybody who didn't get their question answered, contact me via telepathy and I'll try and take care of it.
