the pinkerton diaries and alone III  -  a look into the mind of rivers cuomo in the form of a dissertation style book and cd package. it is pure porn for graphic designers/weezer lovers. the description itself is mouthwatering: 237 Pages • 3-Pound Cloth Binding • Hardback Book • 26-Track Audio CD • Exclusively Available from Riverscuomo.com • First Edition • Hand Numbered. they bloody described the heft of it! hand fucking numbered! unreleased demo tracks! want. but for $75 dollars i dont think so. *fingerscrossed* for a cheapier paperback + cd option eventually.

LOL i'm like an advert. but seriously this should be epic :) im currently listening to pinkerton again and everytime i do it seems more relevant to me and life and everything. i first listened to the album after reading a multi paged feminist article hating on him. and then i was all wtf there's nothing wrong with this! this is awesome! should have known the guy who wrote island in the sun could never disappoint. the man speaks the truth.

like in pink triangle when he says:
"I'm dumb, she's a lesbian
I thought I had found the one
We were good as married in my mind
But married in my mind's no good"
apart from the lesbian bit, i've been there.

but when i sang butterfly to a friend she said he sounds like an abuser...
"I'm sorry for what I did 
I did what my body told me to 
I didn't mean to do you harm 
Every time I pin down what I think I want it slips away 
The goal slips away "
...it was probably the lack of context. you need the whole album. i dont think butterfly sounds like that.

ps. lolol just found this and he actually uses the word "hefty" himself :D
