New video is up on Babelgum. Totally odd, a little disturbing and rather sweet, perfectly Weezer.

But then, allmusic gave it 4.5 stars. Too funny.

allmusic ((( Raditude > Overview )))

I'm actually enjoying the album. The bad songs are so bad that I find them hilarious (if that makes sense), and there are a few good ones on here as well.

I still think Troublemaker was far more ridiculous than anything on Raditude. The only song on this that makes me laugh out loud is Let It All Hang Out. It's only slightly less braindead than Everybody Get Dangerous. I kinda love Red in a way. It's laughably bad, but at least we can all laugh about it. Plus, Pork And Beans alone places it above Raditude.

That Popmatters review is amazing BTW. Absolutely dead on.

I'm liking it more than either Make Believe or Red at this point. Nothing ultra memorable from it for now, but at least it's not the roller coaster ride of good and terrible like the last two were for me.

"Raditude" is definitely more consistent than "Make Believe" or Red. I'm really enjoying it, it's just so much fun.

African Well Fund is auctioning a water bottle signed by the guys in Weezer as part of the annual Got Water? auction.

An article I wrote, both celebrating and tearing down the Weezer legacy:

Somehow I totally missed that Weezer released a Christmas EP last year. Listening now.

For those who've heard it, what think you of Hurley?

Memories is great. The rest is considerably less offensive than Raditude, so that's good.

Why they have settled on being a dumbass frat rock band when they sold more records offering a disarming, fractured view of modern society is anyone's guess.

The Red Album SUCKED and based on these mixed reviews I am hesitate to buy their new album. What a shame they were onced a great band. In the the 90's they were on the top of their game. With the release Maladriot they went downhill.

I think I like Hurley more than than anything they've done since Green or Maladroit. It's still pretty much entirely disposable, but it's not as frustrating to listen to as a number of things they've released in the last number of years.
