Q.what's after Maladroit?
A. lots of touring and recording new records!
Q.when is weezer coming to..... ?
A. weezer always wants to tour everywhere, not missing a single city, not disappointing a single fan. often times, however, a particular grouping of shows is organized by the band's booking agency, and, owing to the need for weezer tours to stay within assigned budgets and what-not, the tours will sometimes "skip" some regions of the country. its never intentional, and always they keep track of where they are "over-due" to play, and ask that they get to the under-represented regions as soon as possible. as some fans know, there are areas in the US and Canada where weezer hasn't played in years, or even has never played. weezer asks fans in those areas for your understanding and patience. If the band had its way, they would be playing every city, every time.
Q.what is all this "=rwa=" talk..... ?
A. =rwa= is short for "rebel weezer alliance" which is what weezer.com/weezer.net more or less is. the orig. site was called this before it's pre-officialness. we've kept it intact on the current site, because well, all the same people are working on the site and it's known for it's fan friendly nature.

Q: i know Rivers wrote some articles for magazines, but I dont know which ones and what issues. help me out so I can locate them.
A: rivers has had 3 articles published. the first two were for Details magazine. "Life In The Fast Lane", published in the January 1995 issue (w/ Stephen Dorff on the cover), and "Road Worriers" , published in the April 1995 issue (with Trent Reznor on the cover). the third article appeared in the february 1995 copy of Chart, an small Canadian magazine. the issue had Eric's Trip and Suede on the dual cover, and the article was one page with a promo photo from the blue album era. this was Rivers's personal favorite of the three, and unfortunately is very hard to find now. (note: There is a conflicting report that the issue in question is actually the March 95 issue with Veruca Salt and Sook-Yin Lee on the cover).

Q: where could I get a video tape/DVD with all of weezer's music videos on it?
A: currently there is nothing available for purchase. (except people's bootlegs taped off of MTV), but I expect that Interscope/Geffen will eventually release one, perhaps after the band makes a few more videos. Such a release would certainly include exclusive behind the scenes footage. Also, currently weezer.com has multiple format download files of all the videos.
