Featured article: Land Air Sea

Land Air Sea is the third studio album by Pat Wilson's band The Special Goodness. Due to the by-now cemented lineup and refined material, Wilson considers the album to be the band's "first true release", despite it being the third album under the Special Goodness name. The album features numerous songs which previously appeared on the band's first two albums.

It was initially released on March 4, 2003 through Wilson and Atom Willard's personal label N.O.S. Recordings, in conjunction with the independent label The Control Group. This version was released with three different cover artworks, titled the "Skyline", "Farmland", and "City Lights" variants; thusly, the 2003 release has no single canon cover art. The album was re-issued by Epitaph Records on January 20, 2004. This version featured a new track order, remixed and remastered songs, and the omission of the untitled hidden track from the first release. On July 15, 2022, after being hinted by Karl Koch earlier in the year, a 12"-vinyl version of the album was released through the label Hello Records. It was pressed on red vinyl and limited to only 1000 copies, with slightly altered cover art and a unique sleeve. Alongside the release was a pre-order for a new Special Goodness t-shirt design, as well as a 4-part podcast mini-series titled The Special Podness hosted by Koch, Wilson, and Willard.

Featured song: "Grapes of Wrath" Play on spotify.png

"Grapes of Wrath" (previously titled "Rock My Audible") is the third track from OK Human.

"Grapes of Wrath" is named for the American realist novel, The Grapes of Wrath, written by John Steinbeck and published in 1939. When asked about the song's origins in an interview with Audible, Rivers Cuomo said: "One night a few years ago I woke up in the middle of the night and I couldn’t get back to sleep, so I decided to listen to an audiobook on Audible. I did that from time to time anyway, but this was the first time I did it in the middle of the night. I stayed up for a couple hours, just listening and listening to The Grapes of Wrath. I did not get good sleep, but it was a pretty magical experience. There’s something about that state of the brain, that time of night—I’m able to drift into this more imaginative state and really enter the world of the writer’s imagination."

Featured quote - Matt Sharp giving his thoughts on Island in the Sun and post-Pinkerton Weezer.

"I remember being in a Panera Bread and having a bread bowl – I don’t know why, bread bowls are a very Nineties thought to me – and hearing that "dip-dip," whatever the fuck that song was."

"Island in the Sun"?

"Yeah. I remember being like, 'That’s got to be them.' There’s a particular melody in there, that just seems very signature to Rivers' style. I was like, 'That's good, that's a really nice melody,' while eating my bread bowl. But I haven't heard too much of it."

-Matt Sharp, Rolling Stone interview, September 2014
