Linked to Article Series: Blog a Day (BaD) 2014

So hey guys, I think I just missed the past 3 BaD blogs. Great way to start off!

I think I severely misunderestimated (apperantly something George W. Bush said in a press conference. Oh silly George!) the amount of time that I would have to blog so I think that I'm going to back off and only do weekends like last year. I have a lot of schoolwork to do, and procrastination of schoolwork to do so blogging every day is a bit impossible for me. Today is a bit of relief because I don't have too much homework, but other days can be a hassle. So here goes:

Weezer - Weezer (Blue Album) - (1994)

Rarely do you come across an album that is so perfect in nature, that every single song on it could be a single (not including pop music that is made for radio play). Weezer's first outting is a prime example of that. If anyone asks, in my opinion, Weezer was the greatest rock band of the 90's, blending together great vocals, awesome sound, and a geek-like charm that we all love. 

I love Weezer because of how relatable they are. They (at least in their early career) wrote songs that dealt with typical romance themes, but through a geek perspective that can resonate with almost anyone.

This summer actually, my friend reccomended me this album and I listend to it and fell in love. This led me to discovering a whole lot of bands and to stray away from top 40 pop, so I guess you could say Weezer introduced me to music!

The Blue Album in particular has 2 of my all time favorite songs on it. Here are those and some of my other favorites:

Say it ain't so is my personal favorite song. I just love the emotion and the transition from a hard rock to a more subtle one. It's absolutely perfect and it never gets old.

Even 20 (!) years later this album holds up amazingly. I would rate it a 5/5.

I like their 90s stuff a lot as well. There's a reason this album is certified triple platinum, and the Bush quote is from Bentonville, Arkansas on November 6, 2000, according to

Much like whatsacow, I haven't listened to much of Weezer in a while, and I used to follow them a lot back when I was in love with their song Pork & Beans. Maybe I should re-visit them.

"In the Garage, I feel safe. No one hears me, No one cares about my ways." Yea, I like that.

Oh Weezer...I started listening to them in college because my former boss LOVED them. Before that, my only Weezer experience was getting ready for high school and watching that Buddy Holly video on MTV. Good album!

Love your eclectic taste, Sidd.

ah yes, Can't froget the greatness of Weezer. I need to dig out my cD and do some audio convering.

Love those "Bush-isms". Reminds me that you didn't have to have a smooth talking car salesmen to be president. If he could be such with his words, the skies the limit for me!

Also those who say it's not a word my answer is simple: We can make it one, we have the technology...
