Sputnikmusic - Weezer offered $10 million to retire (http://www.sputnikmusic.com/news.php?newsid=15706)

Seattle resident James Burns has begun an effort to raise $10 million in order to pay Weezer to stop making music.

Burns hopes the raise the money on DIY fundraising website thepoint.com, with individuals encouraged to pledge $12 apiece to the cause.

Weezer drummer Patrick Wilson responded on Twitter, joking: if they can make it 20, well do the 'deluxe breakup'!

Burns' full statement reads: "I have never been a fan of this band. I think that they are pretty much horrible, and always have been. Even in the early 90s.

"But this isnt about me. This is about the Weezer fans. They are our brothers and sisters, our friends, our lovers.

"Every year, Rivers Cuomo swears that hes changed, and that their new album is the best thing that hes done since 'Pinkerton,' and what happens? Another pile of crap like 'Beverly Hills' or 'Im Your Daddy.'

"This is an abusive relationship, and it needs to stop now.

"I am tired of my friends being disappointed year after year.I am tired of endless whimsical cutesy album covers and music videos.

"Im sick of hearing about whatever this terrible (and yes, even if you like the early stuff, you should be able to admit that they are wretched now) excuse for a band is up to these days.

"If all 852,000 of you (really?) who bought 'Pinkerton' pitch in $12, we will meet our goal.

"I beg you, Weezer. Take our money and disappear."

omfg hahaha. I'm not really sure what to make about this.
