reviewed The Event: "I Haven't Told You Everyt.... September 22, 2010
The Event:
The Event is the latest Lost rip-off, and so far as I've seen the best since Fringe.  It piles on mystery-and-twist after mystery-and-twist, a move that screams, "You think that [i.e. Lost--ed.] …

"Arular" was her father's album, "Kala" her mother's album, and "Maya" is Maya Arulpragasm--a.k.a. M.I.A.--'s "me" album. Understanding this makes its self-interest easier to forgive. There are individuals, …

Yeah, there's "Fantasy." There are also nine Mariah Carey songs and a Journey cover.

Bedtime Stories
"Erotica" lite--crisp, cool, refreshing, almost filling. And how about that "Human Nature?" Way to stick it to the man, girl. And how about that photography?

My days of taking Weezer seriously trapped in the past with my junior year of high school, any breezy pleasure I now derive from Rivers Cuomo's music is thanks to today's listeners realizing his band's …
