Seattle resident James Burns, organizer of an online petition at thepoint.com, is calling on all haters of Weezer to pledge money in order for the band to cease fire in the recording studio. Burns, who claims he has never been a fan of the band, refers to Weezer’s latest work as “an abusive relationship” and says he is doing this for the sake of Weezer’s fans. “I am tired of my friends being disappointed year after year. I am tired of endless whimsical cutesy album covers and music videos.” As I write this piece the pledge to end all things Weezer still has $9,999,864 to go. But who’s to say Rivers Cuomo would even accept the money? Maybe he and his band could use the extra spending money to pack up and move to Beverly Hills… that’s where they want to be.
Are you someone who wants to see Weezer break up? Put your money where your mouth is and donate. Don’t worry, your credit card is only charged if the 10 million dollar mark is reached. Chances are you won’t be overdrawing this month.
