Case makes 100 Greastest Videos Ever Made Website
Does Duet With Penelope Houston.. Lyrics in the Multimedia
Welcome, fans. The wait has ended, as I now have a new hard
drive so I can again update the site as I used to. Sorry for
the delay, and thanks to my friend Glenn for the HD! This
past weekend was MTV's Sports & Music Festival 3, and the
edition of TRL was videos relating to sports or something,
and Nice Guys Finish Last was number 6. Also, more information
is now available about the Friends Again soundtrack at http://www.friendsagain.com.
MFC has taken down the MP3s on our site.. which didn't include
the WARNING MP3, but it did include all the covers in MP3.
Sorry for the inconvenience. In the latest issue of Rolling
Stone, with Christina Ricci on the cover, there is a short
paragraph regarding the new album. It reads: "We're trying
to create some more positivity lyrically," reveals Billie
Joe Armstrong of Green Day about the group's sixth studio
album, now in progress. "To just try and stand for something,
instead of just being depressed". The article was in the "In
the News" section on page 27. The issue also has an article
about the Bridge School Concert, which says "Green Day injected
a welcome dose of young snot, stealing the first half of the
show with thrash-acoustic takes on favorites like 'When I
Come Around.'" Thanks goes out to [email protected] for that
info. I am downloading the full Bridge School Benefit concert
as we speak so I should have that up by tonight or tommorow.
And finally, I received an e-mail from Jason who plays in
the Frustrators, notifying me of a contest that they are holding.
You need to explain a dream night with the Frustrators. You
can read his full e-mail for more details here:
That's all the news for now.. more updates tommorow.
Sonicnet.com has written a press release
about the Bridge School Benefit Concert, and can be accessed
The Berkeley, Calif., trio didn't let up for the next half-hour,
with drummer Tre Cool (born Frank Edwin Wright III) bashing
his way through a half-dozen sets of drumsticks and bassist
Mike Dirnt treating his acoustic bass as roughly as he does
his electric instrument. At one point, Cool flipped a souvenir
drumstick back to one of a dozen Bridge School students who
took their customary honorary spots on a riser at the back
of the stage.." the release points out.
Also, word has come to me that Green Day is scheduled to appear
on Love Line this month. I am working on clarifying this information,
as it isn't listed on the Love Line site on MTV. Finally,
there won't be an update tommorow, because I'll be on my way
to Minneapolis to see Blink 182, Silverchair, and Fenix*TX.
Hey, all. Many people have requested the lyrics
for "Warning," and since there's a few lines of the song I
can't make out, I'd like you all to attempt to solve the mystery.
Send your lyrical submissions to me at buffalocity.net.
There's no prize; but I'll post the winner's name and URL
here in the next update.
Congrats to Jim Beauchamp. He was the first
to send me the lyrics to the new Green Day song "Warning".
You may view the lyrics here.
Hey, everyone. Sorry I didn't update last night..
I was busy with some other personal matters. Our good friends
over at Emenius
Clubus received this information regarding the new album
from a member of Mike's side band (The Frustrators):
"From what we have talked about at Frustrators
rehersals I do know that they're taking their time and producing
the kind of record they really want to make. And it's very
time consuming, but they have no need to rush any of it. So
they are still writing more songs, and they probably will
be for a few months I bet. Then the recording takes literally
a few months for them. So the new record is something they
are working on right now, but it's also not going to be done
anytime very soon. Maybe it'll be finished in the summer?"
So, that's cool.. a LITTLE album news. Also,
409 Online will be sponsoring a contest being put out by a
promotional company who is trying to sell copies of the new
Friends Again CD.. one lucky winner will receive a free copy
of the CD. More details will be given as I get them. I've
been forced to remove my ICQ number from the site, because
my list seems to have overloaded, and I can't get on ICQ.
Regarding the Bridge School audio.. that guy hasn't sent it
to me yet, so I'm still waiting to see when he gets it done.
Many of you have been asking to have me post something regarding
a Green Day song on TRL.. yeah, I'm gonna do that, soon. But
I need to get myself organized so my site isn't the ONLY one
doing it, so it's a sure win. If some of you "older" fans
of the site remember Phil Humann, well, I've offered him a
position at the site again. I'm not sure what he'll be doing,
but expect to hear from Phil in the near future. I sent out
the November newsletter a few nights ago, and in it I had
a few "exclusive" things to newsletter members. You see, subscribing
to the newsletter brings you Green Day news in few cases even
FASTER than the site itself! Subscribe with the subscribe
box below these updates. The exclusives were the following..
A clip of the Billie Joe/PH song can be found at http://www.RepriseRec.com/friendsagain/audio/Angel.mov.
GreenDay.Net, with the cooperation of other parties, will
soon be bringing over 20 live concerts of Green Day to VHS
video available for purchase for $14 to the site within the
next few weeks, and The latest YM magazine features a photo
of Green Day. One other thing.. AGAIN, please don't spead
rumours!!! Here's come clarifications regarding rumours I've
heard people spread: Tre` Cool is NOT dead, despite British
Tabloids, Tre` Cool has NOT been arrested to my knowledge,
the Green Day album has no set release date, track listing,
or cover art released to the public yet. the band did not
break up, and Billie did NOT divorce his wife. Well, NO MORE
RAMBLIN'! Come back tommorow for MORE ramblin!
Just to clear up some rumours. Green Day has
NOT broken up, Tre` is NOT dead, and GreenDay.Net has no knowledge
of Tre` starting his own band.
Hey, everyone. New month today. I've found someone
who has the Bridge School concert in much better quality than
I have it in, so rather than put my hard-to-make-out copy
up, I'll just wait for the person to send it to me, which
should be tonight. I've also had some requests for a tape/concert
trading section, so I've put one of those up. You can either
trade or buy concerts on audio cassette (Videos and CDs will
come within the next month). The page is located here.
That's all for now.
GreenDay.Net now has 'WARNING'
in MP3 format. Click
here to download. The guys over at GreenDaySite.Com
sent this to me, and they're also going to be sending me the
entire October 31st concert in MP3 format within the next
few days, so a HUGE thanks goes out to GreenDaySite.Com.
Notice: GreenDay.Net was able to legally post this MP3 because
the Bridge School concert was live, and was not copyrighted
by any firm, making the show legal to publicly reproduce and
Happy Halloween, everyone. Well, uh.. sorry
the audio isn't up. My bad. Actually, REAL.COM's bad. Or,
just mine.. in any case, my Real Encoder decided to crash
today, so I couldn't get the audio up. Tommorow, I'll download
a new copy and get the audio up.. I PROMISE. In the mean time,
you can check out the The
Frustrators Site for some videos. I haven't confirmed
their presence, but Brian (webmaster) tells me they're there,
so I'm gonna have to trust him. Again, I appoligize. The set
Green Day played tonight was the same as last night's, but
I missed it because I was at band practice.
I just want to remind everyone to watch the
webcast of Green Day's concert for the Bridge School tonight.
It starts at 5:00 P.M. Pacific Time, and I figured out that
that's at 7:00 P.M. Central Time.. you can do the rest of
the math, and the show will be broadcast via Real Audio or
Windows Media Player. Make sure you get the plug-in downloaded
to your browser before the show if you haven't done so already.
And then the broadcast will be at BridgeSchool.org.
And tommorow, the action starts at 2:00 P.M. Pacific Time,
so there's two great shows.. don't miss either! Also, due
to popular demand, I've added a links page. It's at http://www.greenday.net/links.html.
I'll put it in one of the sections later tonight. And finally,
I've been visiting with someone regarding live Green Day videos
on VHS, and it looks like we'll be able to bring you the concerts
you want for about $14 a tape, and that includes shipping.
As soon as we get everything figured out, I'll post something.
Well, that's all for now. Thanks for stoppin' in.
Well, the show tonight was just as expected..
awesome. I did manage to capture the audio on cassette, and
I'll put it up on the site (in Real Audio) either late tonight
or early tommorow. The band's set list included Geek Stink
Breath, Hitchin' A Ride, Longview, She, King For A Day, When
I Come Around, Scattered, Time Of Your Life, and a brand new
song they called "Warning." The greatest part about the whole
concert, in my opinion, was how they didn't refrain from using
profanity, and the audience was filled with young children.
But, I should have expected that they wouldn't have. I mean,
come on.. it's Green Day! So to recap for you, I WILL HAVE
ALL OF THE AUDIO UP TOMMOROW, please quit asking for it. Also,
"Jason," damned if I can remember his last name, played with
the band. He had a fro, and that was cool. And I'm almost
positive I seen Billie give the crowd the finger. Anyways,
I'll watch tommorow's show too, and have audio on that too,
so no need to ask. Hey, one more thing, if any of you have
a cable connection or better and are fairly computer smart,
and managed to capture the show in like, really good quality,
let me know, because I could use your contributions! The quality
of the concert I have is not the best; the words are quite
muffled, but I only have a 28.8 Connection. And then if someone
would want to do that tommorow.. you will get credit for anything
I've almost doubled the Multimedia section with
live stuff and interviews, a few that some of you requested
I put up, and a few that are completely new to the online
world. I've also added some audio files from a few concerts,
MTV, Woodstock, and Letterman. Regarding the Jennifer Love
Hewitt show "Time Of Your Life" and the connection with Green
Day, to our disappointment, there was absolutely no connection.
Thanks to those of you who let me know. And finally, word
has come regarding the Bridge School Concert Webcast. The
webcast of the entire show will be available at http://www.bridgeschool.org/events.html
beginning at 5:00pm PT on Saturday, October 30 and 2:00pm
PT on Sunday, October 31.
As most of you know, Mike Dirnt, Green Day bassist,
has whipped up his own side bandover the past few months,
called "The Frustrators." Brian, from The
Frustrators Website informed me tonight that The Frustrators
have a release date and album name for theirdebut recording,
"Bored In The USA." The 10"EP/CDEP is scheduled for release
on January 11th, 2000 on AdelineRecords. Read more about the
release, and see the cover art at http://members.aol.com/frustrators.
I've also noticed that the former www.greenday.com page vanished,
so you have to access the official OFFICIAL page via Reprise
Records at http://www.RepriseRec.com/greenday.And
finally, anyone who seen the premiere for "Time Of Your Life"
should e-mail me so I know if Green Day wasinvolved. I was
out of town and was unfortunately not able to check it out.
On October 30th and 31st, Green Day will be
playing at the Shoreline Ampitheatre in Mountain View, California.
They'll be playing these shows to fund the Bridge School.
If you're not familiar with thefirm, Bridge School programs
enable physically challenged, severely speech impaired children
to cross the threshold to achieving their full educational
and social potential. You can bid on front row seats to the
concert on VH1 Online, butthe bidding starts at $2,000. If
you are interested, click here.
Also,Jennifer Love Hewitt's new show "Time Of Your Life" premieres
tonight at 8:00pm on Fox.In an issue of YM or TEEN or something
a few months back, Jennifer Love Hewitt said that Green Day
isone of her favorite bands, so it's almost certain that Green
Day will have SOME type of connection ontonight's premiere..
check it out.
Billie Joe Armstrong has recorded a duet with
punk legend Penelope Houston for the 'Friends Again' album,
which will be released on November 23rd. The track title in
which they will do istitled "The Angel And The Jerk." Other
bands included on the album are The Barenaked Ladies, The
Pet Shop Boys, Semisonic, Smash Mouth and more. Read
the press release here.I also have just become aware of
the UNawareness of some visitors regarding the Queen remix
which was to be done by Billie Joe and DJ Hurricane (Wendell
Fite) on his (DJ Hurricane's) second solo album. Earlier,
409 Online managedto acquire a press release from TVT records
regarding the album, which can be found here.
The only CURRENT information I have on the album, is that
it is expected to be released on TVT Recordssome time in the
summer of 2000. "..You can also witness Hurricane�s sense
of humor as evident by the reworking of the classic Queen
rock anthem "We Will Rock You," featuring Billie Joe Armstrong
from Green Day.." -TVT Records
Just some really small Green Day news, this morning on MTV's
"The Blame Game," towardsthe end of the show where they have
to go sing a song to their feuding partener, the guy sang
Green Day's "When I Come Around." It was cool, but he couldn't
sing. Anyways, I'm working on the design and stuff yet.I've
been told that the Picture Archive isn't linked, so I'll get
that linked up here today, and also the coverspage will be
available later tonight. We've only got two covers so far,
so if you want to get your band known,let me know so we can
make arrangements to get your cover to me. That's all for
Hey, everyone. Since you've all been asking me to "do something,"
I've decided toput the almost-finished design up. The multimedia
section is great.. much better than the old one. I'll beadding
imported and more live stuff as the weekend progresses. Also,
the Message Board, Chatroom, etc. is now located in "Site
Stuff," and the covers page will be up again as the weekend
progresses. As stated before,I have no new information on
the new album. GreenDayWeb is NOT closing, to let everyone
know. I thought I could sympathize on Jason, as some of our
visitors have been impersonating him in the message forum.
Itshould be up by the end of the month. Anyways, that's all
I have for you now.
