Thanks to my friend, Linda, at IJL Designs, the website is now up and running and using WordPress. I think it looks great & I’m so thankful to Linda for her help, her design, and her encouragement!  If you are in the market for a professional website, take a look at Linda’s website – check out her clients and her testimonials and get in contact with her.  She’s truly amazing!

I also want to mention that I fought with Linda over sticking in that photo of me with Dave on the design. I didn’t want to – she did.  Looks like she won.  *shrug*

There are a lot of things that I am still learning so please let me know if you see errors or if something isn’t working correctly.  Also, we now have a commenting system so you can directly comment on each update. I have to tell you that this will be monitored heavily.  None of that Perez Hilton blog shit where 50 people comment ‘FIRST!’ and have nothing to contribute.  Please keep your comments strictly to the topic at hand.  If you’re just here to reply with an ‘lol’ or nothing of substance, I’m not going to approve your comment.  Remember that I have the final say – I’m sorry that it has to be that way, but I refuse to let this place turn into TMZ or whatever other tabloid rags there are out there.  You’ll have to sign up and provide a legitimate email address.  Thanks for understanding!

So now back to the subject and the reason why we’re all here…. Mr. G.

Caro sent in the following photos taken at the Woodie Awards at South by Southwest (SXSW) – from my home state of Texas… the ONE freakin’ time I miss SXSW not only do Foo Fighters show up and play their whole new album AND premiere their MOVIE, so does Duran fuckin’ Duran. I’m sick over it. Really. I don’t think I’ll recover.


Imagine my surprise when I checked my mailbox the other day and Juliette sent this lovely magazine over from England:





Lots of pretty pictures & articles…. a magazine for the nerdiest of nerds.








And oh yeah, this happens to be one of my personal favorite photos from the magazine:


Enjoy, my friends….and let me know your thoughts on the website!  Thanks again, Linda… and also, Elle for the bigger logo design! xo

Added a new tattoo pic. I’ll comment on it once I pick my jaw up off of the floor.

Also started a page of my personal favorite pictures. Just because I can.

Well, kiddies.. it’s almost that time of year. No, I’m not talking about Christmas or New Year’s. Pfft.. anyone can celebrate that. I’m talking about Dave’s birthday. It’s coming up on January 14. 36 big years.. before you know it.

So… we’re obviously going to go all out for the big day. We’d like everyone to participate so we can get all those birthday wishes out to Dave.

If you have anything that you want to contribute (poems, letters, drawings, etc.) then please e mail it all to me. Be sure that you include your name so that I can credit you and so that Dave will know who did what. We also have a couple of little fun things that we would like to do as well. We’ll have a “Predictions” page too, where you can submit your predictions of where Dave will be in the year 2020 (25 yrs from now when he turns *gasp* 61)…

Oh, God. That IS depressing. :-p

We’ll also have a ‘Did you know?’ section where you can submit little tidbits of information whether they’re right or wrong. Make them funny… nothing hurtful, please. We just want to make the old guy laugh.

If you have any questions about anything, please e mail me right away.

The deadline for submitting your birthday wishes will be January 12, 2005.

Deny it all you want.. you know you love that picture. There’s more… found these little gems just waiting to be uncovered and posted here to our little tribute site. Check it out HERE. They’re from the AOL/Clive Davis Pre-Grammy party back in Feb. of this year. It only took us 8 months to get them up.. but considering we’ve only been online for 5 months, well now.. it’s not really our fault is it?

Hm.. what else? Oh yes.. we got slammed this week with new visitors… which is GREAT. Close to 600 hits in a matter of 3 days ain’t too shabby, my friends. Could have been that small little get together that Dave and Krist showed up at that caused all of the hits. Well, whatever it is, it’s good to have more and more people checking out the site and confessing their undying love for the Grohl. If you’re like the only person out there who didn’t get a chance to see the pictures from Las Vegas with Dave and Krist Novoselic then head on over to THIS page and feast your eyes on them. There’s also new pics added from BB’s website.

We don’t ask much, but if you use content from the site, could you just please let people know where you found it? We want everyone to come see the website. Thankies.

I actually got to spend a lovely evening a few days back with Dave Leto, who is the drummer for Rye Coalition. Of course, those boys just recently had their album produced by – guess who – Dave Grohl. I went to check the band out and listen to them and I gotta say, I’m still looking for half of my ass.. since it got shredded at their show. If they come to your city or town you MUST check them out. If you don’t know much about them, then check out their page here at our site. We’ve got info on just about every band Dave Grohl has ever worked with.. and if I’m missing any.. it ain’t like I didn’t go searching for them. So as I was saying, Dave Leto is a great guy.. great to talk with and gave me a poster and sticker for free – which was cool because this one guy tipped him like $40 after buying $25 worth of T-shirts and CDs. Long story.. :p

And since this just rocks anyway, I just saw the Pixies in concert and the other half of my ass was shredded. Basically I’m telling you that I have no ass left. Black Francis.. how I love thee.

We’re still working on the site.. trying to get it all situated the way we want.. we’re working on adding a brand *spanking* new message board/forum that’s just a little more professional. To all the kiddies that have all ready signed up, don’t worry, I’m told I can transfer your information right over from the old one and I won’t make you sign up AGAIN. If you haven’t signed up, what the hell are you waiting for..?

Oh, I’m sure you saw the new picture on the splash page with our logo on it. Our friend “Madness” from the postboard totally made that for us and we didn’t even have to ask! He just liked so much that he made it on his own. That rocks.. and I’m gonna use it. We like contributions in any way, shape, or form here.

I feel like I’m forgetting something. Our mod, DeeSeven.. or affectionately known to us as simply ‘Seven’ had some pre-order info for the Nirvana Box Set.. something about getting discounts..? If I can ever light a fire under her ass and get the information from her… maybe I can get it to you. Maybe you all ready know.. maybe your box set is all ready pre-ordered..? You would think that our resident Nirvana expert would be up to date on all of this, but I can’t get her to even stop for one minute talking about how hot Dave was in the early 90s with the long hair.

Ok guys and gals… that’s it. Stick a fork in me.. I’m done. I’ve wasted enough of your time.

The lovely “Judith” from our message board has so kindly donated to our video page. Well, kiddies… why does Beavis & Butthead or Dumb and Dumber come to mind while watching Dave & Taylor wish us a Merry Christmas? It boggles the mind how grown men can giggle over the work ‘cock’ or ‘ass’. Eh.. that’s why we love ’em…

‘God Bless us, every one..’
