What's New Archive - November '01

11/30/01 - The Daily Goo has mentioned this a few times, so I'll mention it myself: John Rzeznik is auctioning off his 1967 Pontiac GTO for VH1's Save The Music. To check out VH1's picture of it on their site, go here! Thanks to Alex for that link!

Thanks going out to Elissa for sending me her discography updates! Please check out our Discography of the Goo Goo Dolls and let us know if you have anything that's not listed on that page. Send an email to googoodolls@musicfanclubs.org. Be sure to include the following information: Title, Track Listing, Catalog Number, Release Date(/year), and also mention if it's an import/promo/etc. Thanks!

Tomorrow morning at approximately 7:00am Central Time, I will announce the winner of our Gutterflowers contest! Thanks to all 166 of you who spent the time to rate all 18 entries! It was a great race!

11/27/01 - Yesterday the Daily Goo made mention about the Goos' listening to Tom Lord Alge mix their new album. They listened to him mix the first song entitled "Think About Me". The Daily Goo also said something worth quoting:

"we're zonin' in on a finished project folks. . . . . . . . we're real, real proud of this one. . . . . . . . . Gutterflower . . . . . . out Spring 2002. . . . . . . . . . . . ."

Real, real proud! It's time to get excited and geared up for this, folks. In a little more than a few months we're going to have the Goos' next album at hand.

I'd like to thank Patty once again for her contributions to our Discography, which needs some serious contributions from you folks as well. Look it over, and send in any information about a CD you have that isn't listed to googoodolls@musicfanclubs.org. Be sure to include the following information: Title, Track Listing, Catalog Number, Release Date(/year), and also mention if it's an import/promo/etc. Thanks! ...There will not be an update tomorrow as I won't be available to update the site. Please excuse the delay of my responses and be ready for an extra-long update on Thursday!

The winner of our Gutterflowers contest will be announced sometime this week... so keep coming back to see who won!

11/26/01 - Thanks going out to Eric and Nick for sending me their Discography updates! Please check out that Discography section and see if you have any music that isn't listed so we can complete those listings before the new album arrives.

So far, we have 123 votes for our contest to see who can create the best mock-cover for the Goos' upcoming album Gutterflowers. If you haven't done so already, please cast your ballot.

The World of Goo NEEDS your HELP! Please go to the Discography on our site, and compare the GGD music you own with the lists on that page. If your CD isn't listed, and I'm sure there's a lot that haven't been listed that are out there, please send an email to googoodolls@musicfanclubs.org with the following information: Title, Track Listing, Catalog Number, Release Date(/year), and also mention if it's an import/promo/etc. We desperately need to catch up and keep that area up to date as we move forward to preparing for the next album.

The Goos are tracking again today and will be mixing their upcoming album Gutterflowers with Tom Lord Alge via a cross-continental communications system starting tomorrow.

11/24/01 - Some very important news I haven't touched yet is about the Goos performing LIVE in late January. Here's the scoop: The Goos will be performing at the PGA Phoenix Open on January 23rd, and will also be performing on January 24th at The Palms Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada at 8PM(21+ show, tix on sale NOW at ticketmaster.com or 702-474-4000). The real question about these live appearances will be this: Will the Goos be performing new material from their upcoming album, or, more importantly, will their next album be released by then? That all remains to be discovered.

The voting process for our contest is going very well, with 60 finalized ballots and over 86 submissions so far. Thanks for your investment in time! If you haven't voted already, Click here to start the voting process!!

Our contest to see who can come up with the best mock-cover for the Goo Goo Dolls' next album entitled Gutterflowers has come to a close and now it is time to put it to a vote! The only rule is you can have only one ballot per person. If we find anyone has violated this rule to benefit any one person, there will be severe consequences, including the possible disqualification of entries. We trust that you will abide by that rule. Also, we invite you not to vote with a bias because of who made it, but judge it solely by its merits.

You will be ranking 18 entries on a scale of 1 to 10. The entry with the highest average will be awarded an AUTOGRAPHED 8x10 of the Goo Goo Dolls! Good luck!

11/19/01 - Joel sent me his entry for our contest we're holding here for an autographed 8x10 of the Goos(see our 11/6 update for more details)! You have only until Wednesday to get your entries in, and then we're going to have a big vote! It'll be in the form of a slideshow, and the order of the entries will be random and anonymous so people will be grading them by the entry alone, hopefully.

After filling out a ballot, which will be rating each entry on a scale of 1-10, the final step of putting the ballot into the ballot box will be clicking on a link provided to you in an automated email sent to your email address right after you're done filling out the ballot. This ensures that there is only one ballot per email address, so people are only allowed to vote once. Voting will start shortly following the last day of the contest.

Today I added Gloria to the AIM Chat Directory! Check out this update.

11/6/01 - Wow, has it really been 4 days? We're going to spice things up here. We're giving away an AUTOGRAPHED 8x10 of the Goo Goo Dolls!! Here's how it will work. The Goos are currently having art meetings for the cover of their next album. So, if you were the Goos' artist, what would you design for the title "Gutterflowers"?

This is a contest where you can submit your own piece of artwork that corresponds to the Gutterflowers title. There is no limit as to how large the piece of artwork can be, but you can only enter once. Once you're entered, it's done, you can't switch entries. Start sending your entries in to googoodolls@musicfanclubs.org and we'll take a look at each of the entries. The best, most creative piece of artwork will win the contest and I will personally email Robby Takac the winning picture with your email address with it. Good luck! This contest will conclude on Wednesday, November 21st. I will occasionally post entries that I think are outstanding. So, get your entries in!
