Today in Weezer History: 1/8/2001 - On this day in 2001, it was day 12 of recording the Green Album. "...Today we moved into "studio 3", down the hall from the big room we were in previously. This room also has had a ton of killer albums made in it, including "Pet Sounds" by The Beach Boys, so we are hoping the magic rubs off... Today was guitar day #1, where the basic rhythm guitars on no less than 12 songs were laid down in one marathon session, punctuated only with brief breaks for water or a quick bite to eat. The 10 hour session was mostly done without air conditioning (to keep the room temperature consistent, so the guitars didn't go out of tune), so the recording room became a virtual sauna..." -Karl, writing on weezer.com. In addition, today was the day Pat's appearance on The Tonight Show's "Jaywalking" aired. (see 1/5 for the filming of it).
