Reggae Mondays

I love reggae. Everyone knows Mondays are generally horrid. I tend to find myself staring at my computer screen with headphones on praying that no one come over and asks me to do anything too strenuous. If and when they…

Weezer’s Upcoming Album; Hurley

Weezer hasn’t been on my radar for quite some time, but this song caught my attention. There isn’t that typical sing/hum-along Weezer hook, but there is a certain nostalgia that is hard to hate in the lyrics. AND! they decided…
