"...Our school, Brentwood Academy, just had a talent show and weezer songs 'island in the sun', 'el scorcho', and 'say it ain't so' were all played by 3 out of the 4 bands that played. El Scorcho won the show, beating over 15 other acts. Everyone here became enormous fans of weezer after their Nashville show which kicked ass especially since half the band was really sick..." ---Jonathan Pears, & Tyler Trew

"...I'm a freshman at The College Of New Jersey. Since the year is winding down, elections for the student board are happening and everyone puts up little posters saying vote for them. I was looking at them the other day and noticed the =w= logo all over one of the posters. Then later that day I see people wearing shirts that say "Weezer Supports (I don't remember the persons name)"..." ---Bill

...Album 5 recording updates:

on Tuesday (4/9), the following songs were worked on:
Nice To Meet You (by Brian; fresh recording, incl. vocal overdubs)
Yellow Camaro (by Brian - incl. vocal overdubs)
Private Message (new recording, version 3)
Buttafuoco (new recording, version 2)
The Story Is Wrong (by Pat - new Mix)

Tuesday was a bit of a rough day in places, the band was figuratively beating their collective heads against the wall trying to sort out some parts that werent coming together to everyones satisfaction. But they got it sorted out and the work got done.

and on Wednesday (4/10)...
Mad Kow (incl. vocal overdubs and new Rivers guitar)
Modern Dukes (all new recording(?))
Private Message (with new vocals and new Rivers guitar)
Buttafuoco (added new vocals)
Happy Together (all new recording)
Booby Trap (new recording, version 2)
Yellow Camaro (added new vocals)

Wednesday, things were back to full steam ahead, lots of progress, and an extra long session in the studio.
