After nearly four months, I am
finally back. What have I been up to? Hmm, well, I've talked to a lot of interesting new
people over the last few months, did a shitload of homework, hung around with a uh special
someone, and played bass a lot. I've been listening to a lot of various music lately too,
mostly a lot of assorted punk and emo.
Sharp is still missing in action. It's been clarified numerous times that The
Rentals have indeed broken up. The stance as of now is that Matt is still supposedly
out somewhere recording new material. Of course, the rumor mill has been saying that for
about a year now. Will we ever get new material from Matt? I have no idea!
Weezer is continuning to suck. I think they are trying to be "emo-metal."
Blake Schwarzenbach is a genius, and Jawbreaker is one of the greatest bands ever.
Someone named "Billy Bob" started up a new Sharp site, and after browsing
it, I have determined that it beats this site in every way for the most part. Check it out
It's pretty damn cool, keep it up...
I accidentally deleted the counter to the site, and I do not feel like replacing
Emo has taken over the masses, and is now the "new cool thing." I've come
to the realization that emo is pretty much dead. This saddens me. Got memories? Save em.
Seven More Minutes helped me
make it through a really shitty summer. Pick it up if you haven't already. It's really
great, and is definitely Matt's greatest achievement. It's going to be on my top all time
That's all I've got. Thanks for sticking around, and checking the site
occasionally. If any new information pops up, I'll let you know. I promise, really, I'll
Hey, sorry for slacking off for a
while. Pictures from the 1995 Weezer show in Roseland are finally up. My server was having
some issues, long story, don't ask. Thanks again to Millhouse83. Click here for the pictures. No news really... :(
I'm not going to update any more on the Weezer
situation. All I have to say is that my best wishes are with Mikey & his family. In
Thanks to Millhouse83, I have a few pictures from a '95 Weezer show in Roseland...

|8/13/01: It just got a little
Read this statement from Karl at www.weezer.net:
"...meanwhile, not everything is so rosy. I've learned that Mikey has not come to
rehearsals in L.A. yet, due to some sort of private medical problem (no, not a cliche
rock-star drug problem!). He has been holed up in Boston near his family. The rest of the
guys are waiting for word, but have decided that theres so much work coming up for the
band that they had better try out some bass players in case Mikey can't make it. So in
between learning new songs with just Brian Pat and Rivers in rehearsal, theyve begun
trying out different bass players, which as any band knows is extremely difficult. Thats
all I know for now, and we'll keep you posted... "
Mikey sick? Trying out different bass players? What? This
is all amazingly strange. I'd sure like to know what's going on. I was reading through the
message boards and people are posting messages like, "Bring Matt back."
The whole situation is very surreal. I like Mikey.
I think he's a cool guy, and a great bass. My best wishes are with him and his family.
Here's to a speedy recovery. As for the Sharp coming back rumors...yeah, dream on kids...
I'll keep you posted...
