Weezer may have just recently released a deluxe reissue of their fan-favorite 1996 album Pinkerton, but frontman Rivers Cuomo isn't done yet clearing his vaults of material from that era. As promised in the fall, Cuomo is compiling a set of demos from the period for his Alone series of solo recordings as well as a book called The Pinkerton Diaries — a collection of his journals, correspondence and school papers from 1994 through 1997.

Yesterday Cuomo posted a video to his YouTube channel showing off a proof copy of the book. Judging by the pages on display in the clip, the tome will include sheet music, handwritten notes and an intriguing chart titled "PAIN."

Though Cuomo promised in a Facebook post that both the book and Alone will be released exclusively on the internet this month, the description of this YouTube video claims that they will be released sometime in March.
