...MB '05 Tour: Day 115: day off, Philadelphia
A merciful day of rest, in the grand ol' East coast behemoth known as Philadelphia. Cold wind and rain made it a little less appetizing than usual, with those wanting cheesesteaks requiring a serious plan and a raincoat. Rest was on the agenda, as the schedule is starting to wear at the seams of sanity. But tomorrow is a new day and the batteries should be back at 100 percent.
...keen eyed watchers of Weezers MySpace page recently caught wind of the plans to do a live Weezer DVD. No details are ready for release yet, but yes, that is the plan. More info when it becomes available.
...Chart craziness: The Beverly Hills video was recently spotted at #1 on the Fuse to 10 countdown, and #3 on the Vh1 top 20 countdown. The "We Are All On Drugs" video is up to #12 on the MuchMusic countdown this week. On radio, "Beverly Hills" continues to rock it. It's currently at #2 on the national Rick Dees' Weekly Top 40 Countdown radio show.
...And in case you havent been paying attention: "Perfect Situation" has just been released to radio as the 3rd single from "Make Believe". Call your local station and request it! Let's push this great song to the heights it deserves!
...speaking of "Perfect Situation", plans are afoot to shoot a video for this song. No details available yet.
