WeezerLip Extravaganza! (that's how it's billed in the press release) is almost here.
Check out the sketch plans for the intro - including a giant pulsating rainbow screen and Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne in bubble while Rivers is in his raft!

so if you've only read the song titles, how do you know the songs are full of raunchy, vulgar lyrics?
what song titles did you read?

Want to know something? I've never heard of TFL until the very mention of the group on this board so I really don't know ANY of their songs other than the titles and I have never heard Do You Realize either. They never got any airplay on MTV to my knowledge nor have they toured anywhere near here and according to Berry that they were more popular in the UK than here in the US, that sort of tells you something why their songs are not popular here or in general a song that is recognizable to me. So I just wondered what the big deal was in the first place.
I know I'm generalising a bit here, but I can't help but feel as if these idiot Weezer fans who were disrespectful and unwilling to give TFL a fair go are the same type of people that would've rejected Pinkerton for it not being Blue II in '96 and subsequently facilitated Rivers decent into mediocrity. It seems to be some unspoken rule that Weezer fans can't care for anything that deviates from the norm.
Wow. I can't believe this.. but I'm agreeing with Lewis. I think the format would have worked out better if it was with a different band. I saw Counting Crows/Michael Franti/Augustana do pretty much the same format and they NAILED it. I'm a huge Counting Crows fan and wasn't familiar with Michael Franti but I knew Augustana..and it was so much fun. Maybe =W= and Counting Crows should do this.. since CC has nailed it and Weezer could pull it off. I'm sure I'll be yelled at by some Crows haters but still.. it would be fun.

From what I have heard from some people who posted on Karl's blog about the show was that the show wasn't that hot and all that TFL did were 8 minute instrumentals and the people in the audience had to sit down when Weezer stopped playing. In other words, it wasn't what everyone expected it to be.
Now if I were Weezer, I would get the following to tour together who are much better than TFL.
Ric Ocasek and The Cars
The Barenaked Ladies
These groups are probably 1,000 times better than TFL anyways plus they have songs that everyone knows. I don't think that anyone on here (including me) knows any of TFL's songs or a song that would be their biggest hit.
"floating balloons of penises/vaginas/phalluses/testicles" This line alone makes Lewis the winner of this and any future argument on this website. I love it. Case closed.
Floating Phallus Balloons would be an awesome band name.

Pearls before Swine. That's all I could say about the argument.
Imagine Sugar Ray performing with Weezer? What a nightmare the parking lot would be.
