El futuro está ocurriendo ayer récords presenta: Todos lo hicimos. El experimento de pintar un disco de cartulina con diferentes segmentos de colores, perforar un par de agujeros y hacer pasar un hilo de cáñamo a través de ellos para crear un sencillo sistema rotativo que al girar nos mostrara mágicamente el resultante color blanco. Menciono lo anterior porque me parece que es exactamente … Continue reading Reseña: Weezer – Weezer (the white album)
4 hours. How can a flight be delayed for almost 4 hours? #FuckVolaris and #VolarisdeMierda indeed. Anyways, a late flight became a red-eye flight but after 2 years I finally met again with Janine Doe Jr., who came to this smog cappuccino we call Mexico City to catch Massive Attack and Weezer. On the same late plane was TV’s Alan Tacher. His typical knowing smile, … Continue reading Corona Clay-pital : a survivor’s tale

In layman terms, if something works in Peoria, it works in the rest of the States.

I have been to a lot of Mexican Weddings and Weezer never appeared. I have wasted my life. Incidentally, this one goes for long time reader and great pal, Stu. Have a happy one, lah! Cains’ are on me next time i see ya! —Sam Continue reading Wake up song for today – 119

by Homo Rodans Welcome, to the Hitchhiker’s Guide to Weezer, dear readers. Are Weezer geek rock geniuses or just the greatest American music machinery ever assembled? That’s the kind of questions that I won’t dare to answer for you on this little guide through the Weezer discography, and yet, I think I have done so already. Ok, so my Editors (Misky and Quinto) noticed that I was … Continue reading A brief tutorial on Weezer (pt 1) – Nerdgazing
