Rivers Cuomo isn't a stranger to throwing us some curveballs. The latest: an album, the majority of which is in Japanese, with the lead singer of Alister, Scott Murphy. They've teamed up to create "Scott and Rivers". Rivers has long had a love affair with Japanese culture, and he's also married to Kyoto Ito Cuomo. He ran across Scott Murphy when Weezer was doing a tour of Japan. Both men are fluent in Japanese.
The album is currently available on iTunes, but here's a preview of one of the songs in Japanese.
This will be my very first DC101 Chili Cook-Off. In honor of this momentous ocassion, my fine coworkers helped me come up with a lengthy list of things to be on the lookout for at RFK Stadium Grounds.
I thought it'd be fun for you to play along, so I've turned it into a game of Bingo.

I've never had a nickname. The closest I've gotten to one are the fanatically loyal followers of the DC101 $1 Happy Hour I host Thursdays who call themselves "Tessahallics". I'm very thankful that I'm not known as something like "Mr. Ding-A-Ling". Then there's the fact that Mr. Ding-A-Ling seems to have encroached on Sno Cone Joe's turf.
And the novelty ice cream truck war began!
I guess ice cream is a tough sell in Gloversville, NY, because when Mr. Ding-A-Ling set up shop, Sno Cone Joe called his headquarters to tell Mr. Ding-A-Ling, "I OWN this town." Then Sno Cone Joe stepped it up a notch, and started following Mr. Ding-A-Ling's truck to lure away customers.
These tactics scared away another competitor last summer, but Mr. Ding-A-Ling didn't cave. Instead, he called police, who arrested Sno Cone Joe and his 21-year-old girlfriend on charges of stalking and harrassment after they saw him tailgating Mr. Ding-A-Ling.
If convicted, Sno Cone Joe and his main squeeze could land in jail for three months...or just long enough to miss out on the entire novelty ice cream selling season. I don't know about you, but I think it would have been much more entertaining if they'd just gotten into a novelty ice cream throwing food fight.
And you thought you were a boob guy.
