Featured article: The Impossible Bend

The impossible bend.jpg

The Impossible Bend refers to a moment in the music video for "Hash Pipe," endearingly celebrated by Weezer fans, in which Brian Bell does an impressive dance move. Performed at the 2:32 mark of the video, Bell appears to bend his torso backwards far enough that he would seem to need to fall down, but he manages not to.

It is unknown if Bell has retained sufficient amounts of sass to complete the move at present, and it is of much heated debate on Weezer forums. Many fans point to Bell's facial hair and claim Bell is still in possession of sass of astounding magnitude. In fact, others will argue that he has since grown sassier, yet also more modest and refuses to pull off the move to attract attention. A small few believe Bell is too old to pull off the bend anymore. An even smaller group of fans believe that it was special effects or CGI, citing "No one could ever pull that off, no matter how sassy they may be." However, extensive evidence confirms that the bend was in fact completed. No such bend has been replicated by another besides Bell.

Recently discovered by Weezerpedia user Cupcake, a second enactment of the Impossible Bend may have gone unnoticed by the Weezer community. Although it is clearly not the blatant rejection and violation of the laws of physics that the first Impossible Bend was, Bell's jerky dance move at the 3:04 mark of the Beverly Hills music video is generally regarded as evidence for the Bend's revival. Seen at right, this picture clearly shows how invigorating even a lesser version of this sassy move can be, as the onlooking fan to the right of Bell is pleased beyond normal human levels. However, the fan behind Bell is remaining at normal levels of boredom because his unfortunate viewpoint has caused him to miss this historic, Impossible event.

Featured song: "I Do" Icon - YouTube.png


Weezer Hash Pipe cover.jpg
"I Do" is the eleventh track from the UK and Japan editions of The Green Album and a b-side to Hash Pipe.

Along with "Always," the song is an unusual Green-era track by Weezer in that it does not feature the full band on the recording. The song was written relatively late, while Green was already in production, but did not appear on the final album. It was released as a b-side and as a bonus track on some international editions of Green, and was performed live at every show during the Yahoo! Outloud Tour, as the set's opening number.

The song is sometimes derided for its similarity to the 1989 Billy Joel song "Leningrad". Rivers Cuomo called Billy Joel one of his "all time favs" when the comparison was pointed out on the weezer.com forums in 2002 [1].

Ric Ocasek, who produced Weezer's first, third, and ninth studio albums, has passed away at age 75. Weezer owes much of their success to his artistry, guidance, and influence. He will be dearly missed.
