Hello. I am doing a podcast in the near future, and am hoping to include some sort of Q&A bit. Since Tumblr already has an question-asking box, this seems a good time to use it. Submit whatever you like to my Tumblr ask page and I will answer it in audio form in the next couple of weeks and post the link here when done.

Anonymous asks turned on until I’m given a reason to turn them off. Questions about writing particularly cool, but happy to take a shot on any topic I can.

All that said - come at me, internet.

Today’s board game: Power Grid. @juliannelefay destroyed us with wind power.

FEAR NOT, CITIZENS. AS LONG AS YOU HAVE NEW COCA COLA LIFE, YOU CAN STILL BREATHE THE POLLUTED AIR.

Weezer

Won’t do this for every track as they come out, but as the first one that’s likely more indicative of what EWBAITE is sounding like than “Shack”…

  • Well, that’s… certainly something.
  • Blue Album-style harmonica obviously a deliberate ploy to make you think “early Weezer” before it becomes clear that it’s very much “late Weezer”.
  • Still, it’s “late Weezer” in their more imaginative, good-bits-of-the-Red-Album sort of vein than in their Hurley sort of vein.
  • I’m not sure if the lyrics aren’t ever so slightly misogynistic, in that awkward kind of way that Rivers has occasionally tended to be ever since way back when?
  • I’d probably hate the mental “5… 10… 15… 20” breakdown bit if it were on Raditude or Hurley. Here… I almost kind of admire it.
  • THAT HARMONISED SOLO. MAN.
  • There’s a heavy rumour going around that Daniel Brummel out of Ozma has co-written a track on the album (corroborated by a couple of sources that suggest it’s almost certainly true - and if I weren’t terrified of doing so I’d ask him directly on Facebook). If the track in question hadn’t already been named (it’s “Eulogy For A Rock Band”) I’d assume that it was this one. Because in several places it really, really sounds like Ozma.
  • The main thing is that this feels confident, and properly thought-out, and well produced, and all kinds of other things that most of the stuff on the last two albums wasn’t. So while I don’t absolutely love it to bits, I still think it bodes well for an album that I suspect it won’t actually be one of the better few tracks on.

Interesting new Weezer song. Quite enjoyed that. But what do I know, I liked much of Raditude. (But admittedly very little of Hurley.)
