Weezer gonna weez, right? "The End of the Game" is a helluva lot of fun and it's not hard to picture that song putting smiles on tens of thousands of faces at Wrigley Field on the night of August 13 when they hit Chicago with Green Day and Fall Out Boy on their "Hella Mega Tour." Looking forward to that one. Well, two of the three, anyway. . .  Played the new Hot Snakes track for my 4 y/o today and asked him if he knew who it was. "Hot Snakes," he said confidently. A big, enthusiastic high five from a proud papa immediately followed. True story! . . . And DJ Shadow feat. RTJ in there too. "Dad rap," as I've seen it referred to, and I'm OK with that. Someone needs to play the jams for the 4-year-olds, right?
