aka Burnst Jamp.

Been a fan of Weezer for a stunning 1 year(s)! Joined this place so I could show off my collection on a userpage, stayed for the Discord which Deckra made me join to discuss bootlegs. Washed up Team Fortress 2 YouTuber FUNKe made me aware of Weezer, but listening to Teal and later an actually good album got me into the band fully.

What I do here

All I originally cared about were Bootleg CDs, but that gets pretty boring pretty quickly. I've broadened my horizons, becoming a Karl Koch obsessor, manga enthusiast, Billy Cobb apologist, and Skuraiipeare conspiracist. For the most part though, I just hang out on the Discord server.

To view my countless accomplishments, why don't you check out my contributions?

Album ranking

Obligatory but necessary section. From favorite to least favorite, it's:

- Mexican Six Hits
- Pinkerton
- Blue
- Everything Will Be Alright In The End
- White
- Ok Human
- Red
- Maladroit
- Green

I have never once listened to Raditude in full. Not out of spite or because the album is bad, I just haven't gotten around to it

Collection

Officially released

    • Got Blue as a Christmas gift from my sister, together with Red and Teal. I had Blue Deluxe and Rock Candy already by this point.
    • Bought this with a set of 6 other singles/promos, one of which was "Perfect Situation (Vocal Up Mix)" which went for $70 on Discogs. I spent about $15.
    • Same order as the last CD. This one came in a standard jewel case (rather than a slimline) and only had a single, very shitty pic on Discogs. The font is also a different color.
    • Promo DGC sampler with "Jamie" on it, along with that dog.'s "Grunge Couple". Purchased in a Japanese Discogs bulk order (However the CD is the US version).
    • Another from the Vocal Up Mix order. UK release, using the picture of young Rivers and Leaves (rather than the earlier version with young Rivers and an unnamed girl).
    • This album blows! Purchased in a Japanese Discogs order.
    • This soundtrack has “You Gave Your Love to Me Softly” on it. Had not seen the movie when I bought it.
    • Not only my first Weezer CD, but my first CD full-stop, and was a gift from my mother. I have a second copy which has been separated from its jewel case for another disc.
    • Part of a batch of 3 CDs I got as birthday gifts from my father in July 2020 which started my CD collection. He overpaid by a lot.
    • UK version with the art slightly zoomed in. Thought it was the slipcase version when I bought it, but I stood corrected.
    • First version of El Scorcho I bought that came in a standard jewel case (rather than slimline). Part of a massive set of orders done after selling my TF2 inventory.
    • The song and art was used in FUNKe-related content which got me into Weezer. Thought it was OZ EP, so I was disappointed at the lack of acoustic B-sides.
    • Got OZ EP with a set of 4 singles on eBay (The other 3 were Green singles). Was glad to finally have a copy with Good Life Acoustic.
    • Pink Triangle is a pretty rare promo, so it cost a pretty penny to get (around $40 on eBay). It's worth it to own Pink Triangle physically, though. Cool design, too.
    • Original Japanese version. Has a promo sticker and says "SAMPLE" on the CD matrix. Came with OBI.
    • Pat's first solo outing, before he started the band of the same name. Only sold (retail) in Japan, which is neat. Purchased off Discogs.
    • Same as the normal TSG CD, but it has a promo sticker and "Sample" written in Japanese on the CD matrix. Sitting in my duplicate Pinkerton case, since it came without one.
    • Purchased in a Discogs order. Don’t care for much for Chopper One, but this release is neat.
    • One of the few decent Rentals albums. Part of a larger discogs order of misc CDs.
    • Contains Weezer’s cover of “Velouria”, which is the first recording they did with Mikey Welsh.
    • I have the version with a tracklisting error on the insert, which is neat. Bought this on Discogs long after I had acquired half a dozen of the album's singles.
    • Very unique Green promo that a Canadian Discogs seller threw in as a part of my order for $10. Wasn’t on Discogs then, but now goes for a bit of $.
    • Standard jewel case version of Hash Pipe with only one track. I forgot how/why I got this.
    • Acquired in the same 4 CD eBay purchase I got OZ EP from. At one point I took the enhanced content on the disc and uploaded it to archive.org.
    • Same 4 CD eBay purchase. This is the only version of this release to include an explicit language warning on the art.
    • Rare winged =w= cardsleeve version bought in the 4 CD eBay purchase. Comes with 2 exclusive B-Sides (Sugar Booger and Brightening Day).
    • Standard jewel case version with white and blue art, acquired in the same eBay purchase as the Blue singles. White spine clashes with the other Green singles.
    • Bought this on Amazon because theangel was too much of a coward. Rarer release in the Special Goodness catalog.
    • Debut album of Pat Finn's band, Organic Mechanic, as well as the first release on Karl Koch's record label Amorphous Records. Bought from Canada.
    • Incredibly rare/sparse tribute album from electronic artist Nmesh. theangel emailed him and bought a copy, I followed.
    • Ordered the Japanese version of this CD off Amazon, but, to my delight, got this instead. Far less common cover, from what it seems. Corner got demolished in shipping.
    • Meh tribute album, purchased for cheap on Discogs in an order with Flip Sides & Acoustic Cuts. Digipak version -- the superior jewel case version seems to be allusive.
    • Got in a bundle of (I think?) 4 albums off eBay. Got one more time in the bundle with 2001 Studio Demos. Numbered 196668 and 007855 respectively.
    • Canadian promo similar to the Green promo. From the same seller, as well. Not quite as uncommon, though.
    • Rare French slipcase promo with godawful art. Got as a Christmas present from my mother.
    • Basic release bought for cheap.
    • The back art of this CD is nice, but has a very low resolution.
    • An EP I wanted for a while. Good art and a nice live performance. Got alongside 2001 Studio Demos and the other CDs in that bundle.
    • First album from Karlophone (Karl Koch). Bought off his Bandcamp. Signed, including a small drawing of a square dude. He wrote my mother's name instead of mine. Whoops.
    • Neat tribute album. Purchased in a bulk Discogs order because the site didn't have scans besides the cover.
    • First Discogs purchase. I had to decide between this, Zerwee, and the Christmas CD due to my limited funds. I made the right choice, this disc rules. Such a cool release.
    • Only album from Brian Bell's original non-Weezer band, Space Twins. This album is amazing, probably one of the best Weezer member solo albums. Neat art too.
    • Original N.O.S. release. Ordered the city variant off Amazon, got the skyline variant instead. A win in my book.
    • I literally could not care less about Kevin Ridel and don’t have anything interesting to say about this CD.
    • Japanese Epitaph 2004 rerelease. Has a promo sticker and "SAMPLE-LOANED" printed on the CD matrix. Came with OBI. Sitting in extra Maladroit jewel case.
    • Bought alongside 2001 Studio Demos, Lion and the Witch, and the other CDs in that lot. Doesn't have the slipcase. It's naked. How disgusting.
    • I think I got this in the 4 album CD eBay lot with Maladroit, but I can't actually remember.
    • I needed the digipak version.
    • Standard jewel case version.
    • Slimline jewel case version.
    • Previously mentioned promo acquired in singles lot. There is a guy who, as mentioned, had it up for $70 on Discogs, but with no previous sales, it's obviously not worth that.
    • Also from the singles lot. Much cheaper, but also neat. The second of my two white US Geffen promos, of which there are many in existence.
    • Wish this DVD was more visible on my shelf. The slipcase is so slim, but there’s still a side label.
    • UK version that comes in a slimline case. Had to add this version to Discogs before I even owned it.
    • Bought this from Holgato, an old ATW, user on Discogs.
    • Second Karlophone album. Signed, with a drawing of a squiggly, confused feller. Also includes my mother's name, rather than my own.
    • Bought alongside Alone II, Not Alone, and Nimaime on Amazon when I received a gift card which I had no other use for.
    • First CD I personally bought. Purchased at Kilgor Trouts in Myrtle Beach for $4. Holds a very special place in my heart.
    • 🏅 Ultimate holy grail. The greatest CD in my collection. After idolizing it on the WP Discord for months, I bought it from Mercadolibre (Mexican eBay) for $60. "Secret CD".
    • Received alongside Blue and Teal as a Christmas gift from my sister. Still in plastic wrapping, though probably not the factory seal.
    • This would be the best version of red if the fucking side label wasn’t upside down. Sticks out like a sore thumb on my shelf.
    • Case was incredibly cracked when it arrived. Like, to an unbelievable extent.
    • Bought on Amazon with 3 other solo project CDs.
    • One half of Mexican Six Hits. I love this EP dearly; anime on Weezer products is an amazing and obscure blend that should be appreciated. All of the songs suck ass, though.
    • Bought on Amazon with 3 other solo project CDs. Standard black and white version -- no DVD.
    • Purchased alongside Hurley, White, and Green on Discogs for a grand total of $19.26. What a deal! Fuck this album.
    • Came without a jewel case, so I had to sacrifice my copy of Myst (the video game) to get it in one. Second CD is sitting haphazardly in the case.
    • Part of the 4 album lot from eBay. When I noted the album's name, my grandmother thought I said "death metal" and got confused.
    • Bought this version of the album a good bit after I got the red version. This one’s teal.
    • Bought with Raditude and co. on Discogs. This is the deluxe version with a red spine.
    • Also bought at Myrtle Beach, but on eBay, for $25. The sixth CD I owned. Researching this CD helped me discover Discogs, fueling my collecting interest significantly.
    • Incredibly rare Hurley promo that I got from a random online Japanese record seller for a good price.
    • Bought on Discogs, shortly after Pink Triangle. I really like the art on this, Sidney is a great inclusion. My first WP edit was correcting the name of this release.
    • Despite including some of my favorite songs of all time, this took a very long time to buy
    • Neat but common sampler. Juxtaposes a terrible album with a masterpiece. Uses a very low quality version of the Hurley-era Weezer logo.
    • The great debut album from The Relationship, one of the best side bands.
    • Very weird and obscure German rerelease of Blue deluxe, placed in a 2xCD jewel case rather than a digipak. Bought from Japan alongside Candy Rock, Go-On, and others.
    • Bought this off Amazon assuming it was an on demand CDr (aka shitty bootleg), but to my surprise it was just a low-effort disc by DashGo, who managed Hurley.
    • Generally this album is pretty expensive to buy in the US, but I got it alongside the Memories promo for only around $20.
    • Bought with Maladroit, Make Believe, and DTFM. Was the newest CD release in my collection by a margin of 4 years until I got Teal.
    • Sits alongside SMM as one of the few listenable Rentals albums.
    • Listening to this album is what really made me a Weezer fan. So, logically, I bought it 4 months after I started collecting. Got off Discogs in a large order.
    • Not a massive Scott and Rivers fan, but seeing this at an affordable price on Amazon made it too good to pass up. These albums are too expensive.
    • Christmas gift from my sister, gifted alongside Blue and Red. Its scans on Discogs are my own.
    • A gift from my mother's friend. Originally tried to rob Target for a copy, but it wasn't on the shelves yet.

Bootlegs

    • My only official bootleg. Got as a Christmas gift. While I wasn't there, Baltimore's my city, so I thought it'd be cool to own the CD.
    • This was way too pricey for what is literally just a shitty homemade CD sold on Amazon, but it recently sold for $50 on Discogs (I spent $40) so I made the right choice. 3rd CD ever.
    • Massive holy grail, but surprisingly one of my first CDs. One of the "original 3" Weezer bootlegs (despite a fourth one, Boys at Play, releasing simultaneously).
    • Sister release to Rock Candy, and one of the first bootlegs to ever release. Got this for $40 off Musicstack. This completed my Rock Candy collection.
    • Bootleg of a bootleg. A random Japanese man took the Rock Candy audio, vertically flipped the Blue Album cover, and sold CDs of it on his blog. I got a copy from Mercari.jp.
    • One of my first bootleg purchases, bought in a lot on eBay. The front cover wasn't shown on the listing so I had no idea what it would look like.
    • Waited 3 months for this to deliver from Japan (surface shipping was a poor decision). Pretty neat/professional bootleg.
    • Same 3 month wait as Short Back. This one is even more professional and has awesome cover art. Live bootleg rather than a compilation bootleg which is nice.
    • Bought this off eBay for $30 thinking it was real. Later I realized it's a bootleg version mass-produced by some eBay seller. Still looking for the original promo.
    • Christmas present. This is such a stupid and silly bootleg, but it's a must to own for any collector worth their salt.
    • Purchased off a sketchy online record shop called piarecords. Expected it not to come, but it did arrive! Found it while searching for the Loose Dog version.
    • Version with a shitty, low-quality cover. This went unsold for cheap on Discogs for months, so I eventually decided to scoop it up in a larger order.
    • Purchased on eBay quickly after it was listed, to Deckra's dismay. Front cover has Mikey while the back cover has Scott.
    • Somewhat of a holy grail as Loose Dog releases are prolific and don't go for sale often. Got this one in a massive purchase from Japan which included a bunch of bootlegs.
    • Not the original version (which does make me somewhat sad), but very neat nonetheless. This one's a CDr with different disc art.
    • Was very excited to see this for sale on Mercari.jp, as we only knew of it through name. One of the many popular Japanese bootlegs that have only recently surfaced.
    • User:Thesweatersong made this for me for my birthday (Burnstday). Unequivocally the best CD I own, probably the nicest gift I've ever received. Only 1 in circulation!

Non-music

    • Go-On! volumes 1-4
    • Pinkerton Bandmerch Tee
    • Various promotional stickers
    • "Nothing But The Hits" zip-up hoodie
    • Purchased in a big order from Japan since no scans were available online. For the uninitiated, the plot surrounds a signed copy of Blue and has a lot of neat drawings of albums.
    • A gift from my Mother. First band shirt I ever owned.
    • Discogs seller included a bunch of old promo stickers with an order I bought. What do I do with these.
    • Purchased this hoodie at the Hella Mega show in Hershey, PA (my first concert). I stood in the merch line for the entirety of Fall Out Boy's set.
