4/9/02 - The day is here. GUTTERFLOWER, the Goo Goo Dolls' Seventh Studio Album was released today. Starting off strong releasing "Here Is Gone" as their first single, the Goos will be going on a two-year long tour for this album, the dates of which are yet to be announced.

After 5 or 6 calls to my local radio stations, I finally heard Here Is Gone on two radio stations yesterday. Enjoy the Goos' presense on the airwaves once again as this album takes off!

4/4/02 - Thanks to Nick for sending me the following updates! Here is a cdnow.com interview with John Rzeznik, a review of Gutterflower at cdnow.com, and another review at launch.com! Check out these awesome updates!

4/3/02 - Brian S. was the quickest one to respond to yesterday's instant contest for an autographed 8x10 of the Goos! The correct answer I was looking for was "Beast in the Jungle". Don't read it, I'm certain it kills brain cells. Pat yourself on the back if you got it right, I know about 30+ responded correctly.


For my American Literature class, I'm reading a short story by Henry James written in 1903. This story has only 2 central characters, the only characters with names in the entire story. Their first names are John and May, hence a correlation with the lyrics of the song "Slide". The first person to send an email to [email protected] with the correct title of this short story I'm referring to, gets an autographed 8x10 of the Goos, pictured here!

I sent out only 6 orders of stickers this morning, shocking since I sent out 21+ yesterday. There's still many more left. Look two updates below this one if you're still interested!

4/1/02 - Recounting the stickers, I'm guessing I have around 280 total, which means about 56 orders worth. So far, as of 12:07AM EST, I've received 15 orders. They're going quick!

If you're sending your shipping payment in the mail to me, please realize that I don't reserve stickers for you at all; you get whatever's left. If I'm out of stickers when your shipping payment arrives, then I'll just mail back your money... so I suggest against mailing me your payment, it gives you no guarantee.
