Sticking to reality-based Dave Grohl news this week…..

Dave made an appearance at the Milk + Bookies Third Annual Story Time Celebration today.  I heard a certain Adin Awesomepants was in the audience and that he got a photo op with DG.

Here are a few photos of the event:

 

Butch Vig “tweeted” the other day: “The last 24 hours have been surreal! Had a great gig at the El Rey last night, and spent today recording with Dave, Krist (Novoselic) and special guest!”

I’m not going to speculate. I’ll just say that I’m looking forward to whatever it may be…!  This would be a good example of how to correctly use Twitter…to those out there that don’t seem to know how. *cough*

So many of you have asked me if I have picked a winner yet for the birthday book “contest” and my answer to you is: How do I choose?

I have a few ideas in mind. One would be to set up a poll here on the site where everyone could help pick the best entry. Of course this involves a little html skills that somehow I don’t seem to possess. There are quick generated polls you can enter quickly, but I’d like to show the entry + the person’s name along with a way to vote.

I was also given advice on just setting up a photo album on Facebook and making it public and let everyone vote that way. I like this idea and will probably go with it, but be patient with me. I have another idea or two and it might take a little while to get it together. Rest asured that we will have a winner.

Speaking of the birthday book…we had a little birthday party going on over on Twitter on Dave’s birthday and our goal was to get his name trending.

Not only did we trend in Brazil, USA, France, Germany….we trended WORLD WIDE which means that we really are all just a big bunch of nerds who sit around typing Dave’s name into a sentence with 140 characters or less.

So suck it, Twitterverse… you got owned.

Thanks, to Laura @kokalola for the image:

Fail Whale!!

So here are a few screen shots of “Dave Grohl” trending on Twitter:

Foo Fighters played a surprise “secret” show last night in Santa Barbara, CA. and you can read all about it HERE from Antiquiet.

Head over to FooArchive to get details on how to order your own copy of NME Magazine: Icons: Dave Grohl.

I recently updated the ‘Dave with his fans‘ photo page. So check out the new photos there.

Also, if you missed any of the photos that Dave has tweeted, I have copies of them HERE.

That’s all I’ve got at the moment. Thanks again everyone for all of your help with the birthday book. It was a huge success. I’m very proud of it this year! Check back soon. I see another update on the way…

Oh yeah, this Twitter thing? It’s off the chain. I’m starting to kind of like it.

So I’m sure you know that Dave is in Tokyo for a couple of shows with Them Crooked Vultures (which reminds me, I hope my dear friend Megumi will be there & I need to e mail her)

This shows up on Twitter this morning from @DGrohl :

Now supposedly this is a photo of Tokyo, but I honestly can’t see anything other than the reflection in the window. If you actually end up spotting this “Tokyo” that’s supposed to be in the photo, let me know. @sweetparamania

*NERD ALERT* *NERD ALERT* *NERD ALERT* *NERD ALERT*

Remember that guy – you know – the one that said that Twitter was a big fucking waste of time & if people would pull their heads out of their Twitter asses (I’m paraphrasing) and accomplish something blah blah blah…

Well, guess who has been spamming us all for the past few days with photos of in-studio happenings and demo recordings?? @DGrohl that’s who.

It started off with this tweet: “Dear Twitter, I take back everything I said before. I didn’t have a new album to promote. Love, Dave” and then some photos were posted. Yesterday, (Wednesday) we got this: “Demos almost complete………countdown to FF7 session begins…….the wait is almost over. More to follow….”

Now, I admit I am not the biggest fan of Twitter, but I recognize it’s place in quickly getting information out to the masses, and if used correctly, it can be a good thing. So I’m slowly coming around to not completely hating it and after the past few days, I might even be excited a bit to log on.

I gotta say -I was totally all about Them Crooked Vultures, and I still am, but suddenly I’m completely excited about Foo Fighters (@foofighters) 7th album!! REALLY excited!! Don’t take that the wrong way. I’ve been a fan of Foo Fighters since the very beginning, but I’m really a Fan-Girl just geeking out all day long at the thought of Foo Fighters now.

Also, I should thank Dave because my Twitter account (@sweetparamania) has now doubled with followers thanks to all of this. I think it’s totally cool that you guys come to me for confirmation of all things Dave, but I can’t say 100% that the @DGrohl account belongs to him, but I’d probably put good money on it that it is. Please don’t let that discourage you from asking me. I might occasionally be able to verify something. I just can’t on this.

So in case you still refuse to sign up or follow or tweet, I’ve got your back. You can either become a fan of my website Facebook page or you can look at the photos here. (Click thumbnails to enlarge).

I’m also going to have them all logged HERE and if there are any more photos I’ll just keep updating that page with them.
