Rivers Cuomo and I are now more alike than ever. Cosmic twins, even!
When I was 18, I noticed a stark difference in my height when I shifted my weight from my right leg to my left. Curious about why, I went to the doctor, where I officially discovered that my left leg is 7 millimeters shorter than my right.
Rivers Cuomo, as he tells in the following video, found out when he was 12 that he had a similar condition.
Coincidence? I don't think so.
In "Pork and Beans," one of Weezer's most recent hits, he said the following:
"They say I need some Rogaine to put in my hair."
The reason behind the line was confirmed at the Weezer concert on Tuesday night.
A few months ago, I was told similarly. Jenny, the Asian that cuts my hair, told me that "I need[ed] some [Nioxin] to put in my hair."
If only I had listened to the rest of my cosmic twin's "Pork and Beans" lyrics. The chorus goes:
I'mma do the things that I wanna do, I ain't got a thing to prove to you. I'll eat my candy with the pork and beans, excuse my manners if I make a scene. I ain't gonna wear the clothes that you like. I'm fine and dandy with the me inside. One look in the mirror and I'm tickled pink. I don't give a hoot about what you think.
Those are words to live by, especially when the Asian that cuts your hair tells you you're going bald and instigates a quarter-life crisis.
Thanks, cosmic twin Rivers.
