60 Wrong Sausages
A band with me, Jason, Pat Finn, Winky Smiles. We only played one show--in Petaluma, California in 1990.
I wrote and sang some of the songs. \"Tennis Ball\", \"Numerous Druids\", \"Ben Gay\".

A series of three records I released that include demos and previously unreleased material.
I currently have no plans to release a 4th Alone album. I'm finding that old material is very useful for new songs.

My mom. Born May 8, 1947. Lived in Charlotte North Carolina until she was 8, then Atlanta, Georgia. She spent a lot of time in very rural Alabama on her grandparents' farm. Her mom had grown up on a cotton farm, and her dad was first a chemist at an ice cream company, and then a minister. His natural inclination to a spiritual path made a deep impression on her.
In high school, she won the International Science Fair (in Girl's Biochemistry) in 1965 for a project on kudzu. 6th place in Georgia for a play she wrote. 3rd place at the Emory Barclay Forum for Southeastern US for a dramatic reading. (She was assigned Hawaii.)
Then she went to New College in Florida but dropped out after two years, along with 40% of her class. The 60's hit her hard, and it took her a while to find her own way through all the cultural upheaval.
She followed a band up north. After a few months as a hippy in the East Village of NYC, she ended up at the Rochester Zen Center. Her father died suddenly of a heart attack a few days later, she married Frank a few months later, and I was born the following year. My mother says that my birth and the birth of my brother a year later, changed her life completely forever.

Local park in Santa Monica. We filmed an impromptu performance of I’m Your Daddy there.

Mansfield Middle School
I went there from 6 through 8th grade.
I was de-shorted twice. (When somebody suddenly pulls your shorts down .)
I met my best friend Justin there.

Medicine for Melancholy
A song I wrote and released in 2018. The song was produced in Ableton by AJR who I previously worked with on their single “Sober Up.”

A hobby I tried during the quarantine. I worked on them with my family. I completed two planes.
No One Else
Written about Petra.
Not to be confused with Petra Haden of That Dog.

I discovered Pet Sounds at the ripe old age of twenty when I went to the local used CD store with the intention of buying a “classic” album by a “classic” band that I had not yet gotten into. Two CDs I found fit that description: Pet Sounds and Led Zeppelin I (don’t ask me how I managed to avoid Led Zeppelin through my teenage years, but I did.) Unfortunately, even after pawning my Mercyful Fate CDs, I could afford only one of the two. After much musing, I decided on Pet Sounds, primarily because the cover was so weird. It’s impossible to exaggerate the effect this decision has had on my life. Thank you Brian Wilson.

Mainly inspired by the lack of commercial breakthrough of the White Album, after hiring talent new management at the beginning of 2015. My wife wouldn’t do Khan Academy algebra with me. The phrase 'qb blitz' just came to me while writing stream of consciousness. Maybe it means I have to resort to drastic measures after being frustrated with more conservative play.

From 1976-1981 My name was Rama. Given to me by Swami Satchidananda. From 1982-1988 My name was Peter. I picked it.
The name on my birth certificate is "Rivers Cuomo".

A playlist I made for my music listening everyday. Follow and listen along if you like. Note, these are not songs I'm recommending. Many of them I've never even heard. They're songs I'm interested in hearing, rather. I may not end up liking them. Listen at your own peril.

Scott & Rivers
A music duo featuring myself and Scott Murphy (Allister, Monoeyes). We’ve released two albums in Japanese.
ニマイメ (Nimaime, "The Second One") will be released internationally on October 21, 2020.
Somebody at Weezer's record company introduced us after I told them that I was looking for a Japanese speaking gaijin collaborator.

Summer Elaine and Drunk Dori
My favorite White album song. Bridge was originally part of rest in peace as that song's verse. I gave an in-depth explanation of this sounds composition on the podcast song exploder. It's very cut and paste so I couldn't say it's about a particular person.

I took some trampoline clases with Kyoko’s and my family in Japan. I enjoyed it so much that I added a trampoline to our concert set for the next several years. I also have a trampoline in my backyard.
I also wrote a song called Trampoline. It’s a hiatus-era recording, initially recorded in August of 1998 at Mouse House Studios in Los Angeles, engineered by Rich Mouser.

I'm farsighted. I had laser surgery in 1999? with Matt's guy, Paul First. Mostly corrected my problem at the time. But I've lost some of the correction and now I have presbyopia pretty severely. My low-light vision is bad.

My current band. And what my dad always called me. I think he was indeed thinking of the Little Rascals character. Cuz "he was the cool one"
