...Weezer's AOL Sessions are coming online as of tomorrow, Friday Nov 18! This is the word we've gotten, so stay tuned to the AOL Sessions site. This show comprises 5 songs performed live plus an interview and a 'making of' mini documentary ('making of' not up yet), all shot at Capitol Studios' Studio A, in Hollywood on 11/1.

...The new Weezer video, "Perfect Situation", got a world premier on Mtv2 on 11/11, though some fans report having trouble catching the video that day or therafter. Its hosted on yahoo.com (direct link here), and by now is cropping up on some fan sites. The video will join our media page shortly, as will all of weezer's older videos, which have been missing for a while now since we switched over to the new site. It's all part of getting all the weezer.com features you knew and loved back up and running again, not to mention expanding beyond where we left off!
...The "Perfect Situation" single has gone to radio and is rising fast on the charts already - up to #7 from #11 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart this week.Show your support of this great song and call your local radio station to request it! And if you have already been doing this, thank you very much!
...coming up this Sunday 11/20, Toronto's 102.1 The Edge will be broadcasting an "Ongoing History Of New Music" episode on Weezer, with a particular focus on Rivers.
