    Two bits of news about Rivers Cuomo 

    yesterday that you may have missed out on.

    The first was an AP story that confirmed that even though the singer of Weezer has sucessfully completed his two-year bid at celebacy, and is half way through his third year, he is not close to ending his fast.

    “Weezer singer staying celibate”

    NEW YORK (AP) — Weezer lead singer Rivers Cuomo is continuing his celibacy past his self-declared deadline.

    The 35-year-old frontman earlier vowed to remain celibate for two years. Although that deadline expired six months ago, Cuomo still doesn’t expect to jump back in the sack anytime soon.

    “It’s been two-and-a-half years now, actually,” Cuomo tells Blender magazine in its new issue, on newsstands Tuesday. “The vow is over, but I wanted to keep cruising.”

    Though he’s a lead singer for a popular rock band, the bespectacled Cuomo says it’s not difficult to manage restraint.

    “Abstinence doesn’t require as much self-discipline anymore,” he says. “We never had any serious groupies, anyway. Our generation got screwed.”

    and then in yesterday’s Harvard Crimson, the bespeckled emo king listed his top 20 songs of the year:
