Hello, my friends

So how was your weekend? Because mine was kind of good.

I know you probably think that the highlight of my trip to Las Vegas was seeing the Vultures show and getting a few minutes to speak with Dave, but I gotta say – the entire randomness of the weekend can be summed up with my adventure at the airport the night we flew back home. That’s right. I hung out with THE Erik Estrada:

So damn random and crazy. We took a cab to the airport and I had to repack a few things before checking a bag when Veronica motioned next to me and there he was on his phone. He came over and introduced himself somewhat and asked us to “hide” him while he smoked. I can’t imagine who he was hiding from. No one else even looked in his direction. Later on in the terminal I ran into him again and he asked me to help him find his gate. Everyone relax. I got him on his flight to NYC so that he could begin some new campaign for Butterfingers candy bar. You’re welcome. That’s the kind of gal I am though – always helping out no matter who it may be.

Also, I’d like to take the opportunity to tell my hotel roommates once again how sorry I am for being the complete asshole on Sunday morning. Somehow the clock on my phone set itself back to east coast time when I was still on the west coast. I woke up suddenly (probably still used to east coast time) and was under the impression that it was 10am which was one hour before check out time (and the precise moment that the Hard Rock hotel would begin charging me $100 for every extra hour we were in the room). I ran through the room like a crazy woman yelling “GET UP! Start packing! We have an hour!” The reality was that it was only 7am. Let’s just say that I was not very popular that morning and was called some colorful names. I deserved it. Really. I am horrified at the thought of me running through the room grabbing clothes and stuffing them in bags. Yikes. Sorry girls.

Before I get to the photos from Las Vegas, I wanted to share this with you. From the most recent Rolling Stone magazine Issue 1103 / April 29, 2010 (American version with The Black Eyed Peas on the cover), 40 Reasons to get excited about Music. Reason # 8: (Click to enlarge)

I don’t know about you guys, but I’d be perfectly happy if TCV decided to hang around for a few more years. This is a lot of fun.

If you’re on Facebook or Twitter, you should really follow us on both because sometimes it’s easier to get things out there via those sites and you’ll get so much more information rather than waiting for me to update everything here. Facebook is especially easy for me to put out links to photos or videos etc. So make sure you sign up. Just a little FYI because I’ll be adding things here & there from this past week.

So here are a few photos from the show. You can see them all HERE. What a great time. TCV was on fire that night. What a great show! It was so good to finally meet so many of you that follow the website and put faces to names too. I really appreciate all of the kind words you had for me about the website. It really does mean a lot to me that you all take the time to visit here and give your input and contributions. Several of you sent me messages afterwards and said you had seen me, but didn’t want to bother me. Please don’t feel that you can’t approach me. I would love to meet you all and say hello. 🙂

Again, check all of the photos out HERE

Also, I was just kidding above about the highlight of my weekend being the whole Erik Estrada thing. Clearly it was seeing the show and Dave. What a great guy. Much love and respect to him always. And Jesus Christ, Josh Homme is tall. Very cool finally getting to talk to him a bit. Josh was amazing during that show. Thanks, guys!

If you were there and would like to share your photos, stories etc., send them in to me and I’ll get them posted. Leecy’s e mail

If you were lucky enough to be in Las Vegas the other night, you could have caught a semi-surprise Foo Fighters show at Rain for AG Jeans.

Or maybe even if you were just hungry and wanted a steak at N9NE Steakhouse, you could have run into this guy:

I sort of feel all TMZ-ish posting that.

Here are a few photos from the show:

Speaking of Vegas… 2 months… the countdown starts. So excited about that one.

LeAnn (Chicago on the Foo Fighters Postboard)snapped this photo in Las Vegas at the Hardrock Hotel & Casino. I think we all know who this handsome fella is:

LeAnn says: “Just wanted to send you this pic that I took out at the Hard Rock in Vegas back in April. They’ve got the new Joint built, and they’ve put pictures on the backs of the doors that lead into the venue now. This one of Dave was taken during the Vegas shows last September.”

Thanks, LeAnn. I’ll put my order in for some doors like that.

Hi Everyone,

I swear to you, I have not abandoned this website. I know that I have said that over and over and only manage one update a month if I’m lucky. It has been an interesting year in the life of Leecy and that’s all I’ll say about that!

In the ‘please hit me…what was I thinking?’ department.. I did not go to the recent Las Vegas shows as it seems everyone else DID and of course, ran into what’s-his-name by the pool as documented by these photographs:

That’s our friend Kathryn or “KnoxyMama” as we like to call her and her friend Gabrielle. These look like honeymoon photos to me but what do I know? I didn’t go – I thought I’d stay behind in this fantastic Boston weather as it rained and was miserable. Clearly I’m a genius. So if you were hanging out by the pool and got your photo taken with Dave…well, send it along to me and I’ll put it up in our ever-growing ‘Dave with his Fans’ page.

Joe Tone sent over a link to a review for the Red Rocks Foo Fighters shows. You can read that HERE

Elle – you remember her – she designed the whole website – has made some more wallpapers and I kind of like Dave wearing a shirt advertising the site.

Elle also sent me some photos from the Berlin Foo Fighters show and I will have those up soon among other things.

Also, just to get you thinking about it – Dave’s 40th Birthday is January 14, 2009. If you’ve hung around our site for any time, you know that we celebrate Dave’s birthday like it was the second coming of Christ or something so start thinking about your birthday book contributions because we will have prizes again this year for best entry. Also, I haven’t chosen a theme for my entry this year and I am gladly taking suggestions as I feel I have no more creativeness in me. I’ve peaked is what I’m saying. Help.

Dust off that photoshop and get to work. The official announcement will come after Thanksgiving (that fantastic American holiday!) which is the end of November.

Happy Halloween, Freaks!
