I wouldnt be surprised to learn that it was only pressed up the one time. X amount of copies and it never was pressed up again.

I don't like them because their music is bland, safe and boring, and self-absorbed besides, and too full of its own importance. Bloated, pompous nonsense that utterly fails to rock in any meaningful way.

This coming from a guy who loves Hall and Oates.

But I can't talk, I hate Coldplay too. Buncha pussies.

First time I heard "Yellow" ABC was using it on their station identification. That's about right for the band. Commercial music.

Hell, get "Ultimate Hall and Oates" or the "Essential" Hall and Oates. Same comp, different packaging. They are the last great singles band so I think a comp is perfectly fine. I really rank "Rock and Soul, Pt 1"-- one of the best "best ofs" ever but you get pretty much all of that on the 2 disc set. The live "Wait for Me" and the single mix of "She's Gone" though-- those are way superior to the LP versions included on "Ult/ Essential."

Isn't there a concert DVD in the works?

I'd expect a DE Pinkerton this year sometime on time for the tenth anniversary.

You know what's an awesome little Weezer song? "I do"-- and Rivers opened with it, on a shitty little keyboard, when I saw them in 2001.

I could've sworn "In the Garage" happened to you, as well.

Yes, but for me, it was Spidey and Led Zeppelin, not the X-Men and KISS.
158  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Weezers Pinkerton on: February 18, 2006, 12:10:03 AM
Absolutely. Both albums come from the same place of a young man's uncertainties about love, his place in the world and the future. And  it's edifying to the (male) listener that it's okay to be uncertain and not tough, despite what society may impress upon you your entire life.

(I'm not trying to exclude the female populace or say that they don't feel these ways...)
159  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Weezers Pinkerton on: February 17, 2006, 11:22:57 PM
Yes that's just one.

Then there's Sharon, the girl who I took to a Weezer show in March 2001. I thought we had a thing, a connection to each other through the music. My heart raced with the hope of possibilities after that awesome night. I worked with her at Rite Aid. I go into work the next day to learn she was dating my coworker Steve and no one told me before the show at all. I wanted to puke. That's the reason that "Pinkerton" is so dear, it's too real to me. At times, the reality of the words becomes my reality and the lines are blurred between my life and the songs.

And btw, Ian, "The Capitol Song" is about that experience except it started out in reverse "can anybody tell me is there a greater blow than a girl who says she doesn't like you but loves your rock and roll?" but it works soo much better as it stands.

No it's worse when you aren't sure if the girl is really gay or if you are the reason she won't date you.

Nice! Laurie, when did you get hip to the Smith?!
164  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Weezers Pinkerton on: February 17, 2006, 11:05:48 PM
Actually Mitch, "Pink Triangle" happened to me.

"Falling For You" and "Getchoo" are other girls too.
165  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Albums that desparately need bonus tracks on: February 17, 2006, 11:04:27 PM
I know of Cold Cuts, just haven't heard it.

As for "Nevermind" I agree with Kurt that it sounds like a Def Leppard record and that it sounds like a "candy coated razorblade" (or whatever the actual Cobain quote is.) I definitely prefer the rougher sounding Albini production on "In Utero" and hell, the lack of production on "Bleach" over "Nm." We've talked about it before but have you seen the "Nm" DVD that's out with Vig working the boards on "Drain You"? I agree. he totally made that album.
166  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Albums that desparately need bonus tracks on: February 17, 2006, 10:44:15 PM
I kinda want to hear more of the Nirvana "Nevermind" demos from the sesssions that included 'Pay to Play" (from DGC Rarities.) Reissue "Nevermind" as a Deluxe Edition with those demos and the correct B- sides that the Box set overlooked. I'm guessing this is the plan since the Box blatantly skipped over the correct "past masters."

And then there's Macca... his Collection series discs have great already released B sides and rarities. But dammit man, give us some unreleased gems! If there's anything he's hiding as good as "Mama's Little Girl" sitting in the MPL vaults, he needs to hook us up!
167  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Weezers Pinkerton on: February 17, 2006, 10:32:58 PM
  "Pinkerton" is inextricably linked with "Pet Sounds" in my mind. For a long time every crushing defeat in the Beckner War for Love had been met with a salvo of "Pet Sounds" backed with "Pinkerton" with a side round of "Sweetheart of the Rodeo." About five years ago, I once stayed in bed for two days listening to both albums back to back over and over again, heartsick and broken. Unhappy with the answers the records gave me, a few months later I found myself looking to God for salvation again.

Still both albums remain dear to me. I am able to listen to "Pet Sounds" more freely these days but "Pinkerton" is still about that one girl who got away...

oh sh*t. It is a put on.
169  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Albums on your wish list on: February 14, 2006, 04:03:42 PM
*last three Monkees albums and Missing Links Vol 1-2-3.
*The Who "Rarities" and well, their post 1973 catalog.
*More Byrds.

I dunno, I didn't think of Stillwater as a parody but more of a genuine referential thing. Crowe was gonna have the band be English but he realized that would have been way Tap-esque. I think if Crowe could have reasonably had the band be Zeppelin he would have.
171  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: power pop bands of the 70's on: February 10, 2006, 10:38:44 AM
Big ups for including the s/t Emmitt Rhodes album! I don't know much but that album owns, no matter the category.

"Carl and the Passions" LP pressing, Mono. The fuillest sounding the album has ever sounded.
173  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: power pop bands of the 70's on: February 07, 2006, 08:01:05 PM
jeez, the Residents in the Power Pop thread. Funny.

I bought "Meet" bc of this board. It aint for everyone.

While we're at it, wouldn't it be nice if they made a BEACH BOY movie directed by someone like Oliver Stone (he'd be perfect, especially for Brian Wilson's POV scenes). They could base it on Brian Wilson's autobiography "Wouldn't It Be Nice."

Hm, Oliver Stone makes sh*t up in his movies and the book "Wouldn't It Be Nice" is made up sh*t. I like the synergy.

Is this an officially licensed thing? What is LSL Productions?
