Photos from Green Day, Chicago 2009

Alrighty boys & girls...you asked for photos, here's the deal:
1 Please do not link directly to this page, it changes a lot.
2 Feel free to keep any you like, but don't claim they are yours.
3 If you like them, I'm going to St. Louis & Kansas City shows...tell the idiot club I should be their photographer for a day! Just kidding, but wouldn't THAT be nice! Have fun with the pictures, use good judgement & be good people!

Rumor has it there are 10 trucks to move the show from city to city.

Verizon & Blackberry are cosponsors of the tour & travel in this awesome bus with a trailor of Merch. In Detroit we were given a promo poster as we left the venue. Thank you very much for that!

Bunny!!! Personally I think they draw straws and the loser get's to wear the bunnysuit OR Billie wears it to scope out the crowd before the show.

And we Begin......

Darwin: Change over time

University of Illinois graduate student Mike Rosulek created a this series of Shepard Fairey Obama poster parodies.

Mike is selling t-shirts & posters on Zazzle featuring the Darwin images and he’s donating all the proceeds to the National Center for Science Education (NCSE).

(post copied from laughing squid)

I'm getting all warm and fuzzy

The anticipation for the new GD album is KILLING ME! Rolling Stone just wrote an article that has me dancing around the kitchen. I can't wait to see this creation this summer on tour....Oh release a song, will you! Then again, if it's green day style, they'll have to be very creative with the editing and that's usually a nightmare. Go HERE to read the article.

Don't buy Dole Pineapple!

So I'm reading a promo flyer sent to food industry professionals, and I find this little blurb:

"May 10- Mother's Day, the Biggest Restaurant Day of the Year. Cash in on everybody's favorite person."

Cash in? Cash in? F-U! from this moment on, I will never buy Dole pineapple, and let everyone I know their stance that mom's shouldn't be celebrated but used.

Green Day 2009

I would almost sell my children but they are big fans too! I'm so excited!!!! Can't you just feel it???

The Ice Champion...the video!

Allison had her first Figure Skating competition today. She competed in Pre Alpha solo and Pre Alpha Compulsories. We were very nervous, because we just spent a week at the beach, but she was very well prepared and took First Place in both events!!!

Here's a very rough version of the event, with the professional copy to come in a few weeks. Enjoy!

Patrick McGoohan 1929 -2009

Who are you?
I am number 2, you are number 6.
I am not a number... I am a free man! (cue giant balloon to chase him through the lifesize chess board)

What a sad day. Patrick, you did indeed leave The Village.

Please help the kids that really need it!

There is a bill (Senate Bill 101- Habilitative Therapy Services)before the Senate that will really help children with disabilities. They can't write the letters, but you can! Please take a minute, follow the link to find your representatives and send the following letter. Thank you very very much!!

Dear State Senator ___________________________________________

I am writing to request your support for the amended version of SB 101. The proposed legislation would provide insurance coverage for children up to 19 yers of age who are in need of habilitative services, including physical, occupational and speech and language therapies. This legislation is needed since some insurance companies deny therapy coverage or limit the number of sessions for children solely based on their diagnosis of developmental disability. The children that would be covered by the proposed legislation include children with a congenital, genetic or early acquired disorder.

As you know, the impact of therapy services for young children is significant. The earlier we support children and their families the better the outcomes in the future. I would greatly appreciate your support of Senate Bill 101.

Ewan McGregor is my friend

at least on MySpace he accepted me....I'm all giddy.

On a serious note, he recently had a skin cancer removed and he's only 37. Scary stuff!
