Jennifer Chiba and Elliott Smith.

Jennifer Chiba is an indie musician, most notably of the band Happy Ending. She was Rivers Cuomo's on-again off-again girlfriend between approximately 1992 and 1995. The song "I'll Think About You" was written about her, as well as others, presumably.

Additionally, the character of Maria in Songs from the Black Hole was inspired by Chiba and the relationship between Maria and Jonas was based on Chiba and Cuomo's relationship.

Chiba was later the girlfriend of singer-songwriter Elliott Smith when he died in 2003. Cuomo wrote "The Other Way" about wanting to console Chiba after Smith's death, while questioning his motives for wanting to do so.
