Across the Sea
Add your thoughts Comments. General Comment Rivers said the song was about masturbating to the girl's picture. When the song gets really slow, and he talks about shaving his head and trying to be a monk and assuring his mom he's a good little boy, it reflects the guilt he feels after committing the act. That part makes the song a lot more telling. Like, maybe he's this lonely, awkward guy who can't get a girlfriend in real life even though he's got teenagers in Japan writing him fan letters.
Or maybe he just really gets off on how absurd and ridiculous and disgusting it is to fawn over a random Japanese fan who sends him a picture. No Replies Log in to reply.
There was an error. Anyway, I agree with thisboy on this song, but not the part in brackets! General Comment Pinkerton didn't do well because it wasn't as commercial. It's darker, and deals with some intensely creepy awkwardness, which is why it has such a cult following. Anyway, it's about him getting some broken english letter from a Japanese fan. He becomes emotionally attached to her even though he's never met her, imagines her masturbating, sniffs at her envelope, etc, and ends up writing this song about her.
Weezer really took off after the blue album, and in the song he attaches himself to the fan because he's longing for something more. Why are you so far away from me?

The girl was super young, too. That's why he says "I could never touch you, I think it would be wrong. General Comment This song actually isn't metaphorical at all, he really did recieve a letter from a fan from japan who really liked him after hearing a song off the blue album. And he really did obsess over her for quite some time. It's straightforward.
There he discovers a much-reduced sapient civilization that had links to the EMs before the Watcher came. The Watcher prevented the Moon's inhabitants from reaching the surface and developing technology, but cannot destroy the civilization as it is protected by ten kilometres of ice. News comes from Earth delayed nine years by the speed of light that the Swarmers have begun land invasions; the tense superpowers each suspect the other, and escalate into a full-scale nuclear war. The machines, who had attempted to engineer just such a conflict, send their flotilla against the weakened Earth.
The grim news galvanizes the crew to reactivate the fusion drive and turn the plume on the Watcher. At some point after the publication of one or more sequels beginning with Great Sky River , for the American paperback edition , Benford appended a new ending onto the original ending of the novel.
The following section is from the second edition of the book to bridge over to the continuance of the Galactic Core Saga:. The Watcher is eventually blinded by being coated with a life-form native to the moon, which eats metals and other such materials, thus allowing the humans to board the ship. The boarding party discovers a map of the galaxy marked with places significant to the machines, and a fast vessel to take them to those places. Now the leader, Nigel vetoes suggestions that they return to Earth and quoting Adventures of Huckleberry Finn "Le's all slide out of here one of these nights and go for howling adventures amongst the Injuns over in the territory; and I says all right, that suits me.
Earth's ocean-borne myriads, now partnered with the Skimmers against the Swarmers, will just have to fend for themselves. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about the Gregory Benford novel.

Sort order. An interesting set of stories. I picked this up because I wanted to read Childhood's End. I found the short stories and Earthlight to be much more interesting. I had previously read Tales From The White Hart , and didn't care for them, so my review ignores them. Shelves: sf. I read this during the summer at the cottage up in SW Michigan. Some of the stories and novellas had been read before during childhood. Jun 05, Charles rated it it was amazing Shelves: science-fiction.
