I hope you’re happy with yourself, Ailsa Chang.
You and your little weasely Weezer friend Scott Cuomo have just ruined the next two or three or four days of my life.
￼There will be nothing creative or artistic or socially useful coming out of me for the next couple of days. No – I will spend every available moment listening to every song that Weezer has ever recorded.
I thought my life was just fine listening to “Island in the Sun” dozens of times – one of my all-time favorite songs and still, so far, my favorite Weezer song.
The people at Spotify apparently decided I just wouldn’t “get” Weezer’s music. Their tiny-brained little algorithm has never sent me a second Weezer song.
But your interview with Scott Cuomo was so adorable, so fun – and such a total collaboration. You two danced together for that whole interview – and the enchantment of those eight minutes made me decide I absolutely have to know Weezer from the inside out.
After – or maybe during – my Weezer binge, my second preoccupation will be what I can possibly do in the remainder of this brief, shining life of mine to get interviewed by Ailsa Chang. Perhaps I shall start a rock band – or go back to Harvard – or some shit like that.
And oh, how to make the sweet miss Ailsa laugh – like she did through that whole interview.￼ Scott Cuomo made this look easy. If I could make Ailsa Chang laugh – even over a Zoom call, even if I am never in the same room with her….
