“I want you to” … see this video

I’m so totally sad that Green Day is not as cool as Weezer.

As Weezer gets more radically awesome… Green Day slips into the mtv culture cesspool… see their “21st Century Breakdown” video directed by Marc Webb

Maybe it has to do with all the “Raditude”  that’s coming out Nov. 3, or maybe it’s the fact they are designing a snuggie…

I digress I was actually going to talk about their new music video “I want you to” which was also directed by (500) Days of Summer director Marc Webb.

The colors, the clothing, and the humor are spot on and totally in line with the fashion and musical senses of Weezer. Also I love the flair of the Twilight Zone splashed around in this video.

I must show a few still shots from the video because I’m a terrible mess at embedding.

Firstly I’m suprised Isabel has never vacationed here:

And here’s some River’s I’m digging his hair:

And this is Brian who is a slick, and dreamy car attendant:

I think Scott should always wear suspenders:

And here’s Pat playing a “dangerous” game”:

Here’s a very strange barber shop quartet consisting of exponential weezies:

and finally the whole band mostly together:

I can’t figure how to embed the video so you can see Weezer’s awesome video for ” I want you to” at the linky here. Enjoy!

The Air Guitar

Okay so as expressed in several locations on this site Joseph Gordon Levitt is pretty cool.

Here is a quick recap of why he’s so cool.

1. He was in “10 things I hate about You.” This is where we found out that he burns, pines and perishes for Bianca Stratford. As well as taking time to learn French does not insue that the girl of your dreams will fall in love with you.

2. Everyone watched “3rd Rock From the Sun.” Where he also was with Larissa Olyenik

3. 500 Days of Summer looks awesome. He plays a greeting card designer who desires to be an architect.

4.  He doesn’t go by Joe or Joey, thank you btw.

5.  He can do this:

There aren’t many people who can air guitar so well.

except:

be excellent.

The Movie I want to see: 500 Days of Summer

This is the movie I want to see this summer.

The first time I saw this trailer. I initially thought, “Summer is evil”. How can she do this to poor Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He’s the small lad from “10 things I hate about you” who “Pined and Perished” for Bianca Stratford.

And then I realized I can totally relate to Summer. Things do happen and then you should cut your losses and go on. We are young, and I am not a marm. If things suck, staying will only make things worse. And I know I may regret saying this someday, but screw it. That is how I feel right now.

And a story about love seems better than a love story.

Also I love how they filmed in LA and didn’t make it a joke. I actually do love Los Angeles and once you get off of Hollywood Blvd. we are real people. We have bikes, and dogs, and 78% of us even have souls. Just like the rest of the world. We may not have the most structurally lush skyline like most major cities, but we have our funky good times.

And we have awesome food, music, and vintage clothing stores.

Also this made me laugh because it sounds like Jimmy and I talking… this is what we talk about. Just in case you ever wondered.
