Weezer - 'Pig' (Red Album Deluxe Edition Bonus Track) - In which we find out why Rivers Cuomo is vegetarian

Or: In Which Rivers Is
Or: Awww...

Yes I'm milking The Red Album dry to the bones at its very core. This is because it gets this blog hits. And hits, as we all know, mean a sense of well-being/power. Regardless of self-interest though, THIS IS REALLY REALLY GOOD:

mp3: [mp3 removed]
(from Weezer (The Red Album) (Deluxe Edition))

The first half is just like "awww, cuuuuuuuuute!!" Especially the clapping at the line "Everyone clapped when I asked her to marry me". It even includes the phrase "cutie-pie". Like I say: awww...

Then: "But now, I've got to die". Awww... (awww in a slightly different sense). The day of little Piggy-Rivers's death has arrived. ":(" doesn't even begin to cover it. And he's so gracious and accepting of it all, even thanking and empathising with the farmer...*wipes tear away*.

Dude, if I wasn't vegetarian already... Not to get all militant on your collective or anything. Rivers is, by the way. Vegetarian, that is. Although I quite like the phrases "Rivers is", just by itself. It has a nice sound to it, and it's grammatically challenged, which is nice. After a big orchestral-y bit, there's a quick, heartbreaking acoustic return to the beginning: "When I was a baby, I was so happy...". Like I say: awww...

~I am a witness to this. Yes. Yes it does.

I would also like to start more sentences with 'Rivers is', especially after that geology paper!!

The chap is completely right, and there's no skepticism.
