Rivers Cuomo’s Shakespearean Nerd Nights Out

By Alyson Camus | July 11, 2015

‘I think only one of his plays — ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ — was an original story. He would read these history stories and combine different plots. And in the case of this play, that whole speech by Enobarbus about ‘the poop was beaten gold’ — that description of Cleopatra that’s so beautiful — he really lifted a lot of that from a different source. I’ve read the original. So it’s inspiring to know that even Shakespeare needed to rely on the work of people before him. That gives me license to do the same.’

10 Songs: Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

By Iman Lababedi | October 8, 2014

The martial beats that open the song are a fake out, this is actually emo rock as Rivers had a huge influence on via Pinkerton, and so I guess it makes perfect sense for this to sound very Pinkertonish in the best manner possible. A great song, his first great song in a long long time – A
