4/17 - From cdnow.com:  Third Eye Blind Record New Track For A Knight's Tale  April 16, 2001, 4:35 pm PT

Third Eye Blind has recorded a new track called "Eye, Conqueror" for the soundtrack to the movie A Knight's Tale, according to a spokesperson for the band at Eric Godtland Management.

The song was cut in the studio in late March and road tested at Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania earlier this month and again at the band's appearance at the Indycar Grand Prix in Long Beach, Calif., April 8.

Although singer Stephan Jenkins had announced from the stage that the song would be included in the film, the deal was not finalized until this past Friday (April 13).

The soundtrack, which also features Robbie Williams and the surviving members of Queen doing a duet of "We Are the Champions," as well as previously released tracks by Heart, Eric Clapton, David Bowie, and Thin Lizzy, among others, will be in stores May 8 on Columbia Records. The movie, which stars Heath Ledger and centers on jousting tournaments in the Middle Ages, hits theatres May 11.

The group also performed two other new songs at its recent appearances, including its collaboration with Run-DMC, "Rock Show," and a song called "I Forget" from this fall's Rock Star, which also sees Jenkins in his acting debut (allstar, April 4).

Third Eye Blind, meanwhile, will be playing a handful of one-off festivals as well as several acoustic shows that will feature just Jenkins and guitarist Arion Salazar as they get ready to record a new album. The band has set aside time in May to write and rehearse new material.  -- Sorelle Saidman  Discuss on the message board

4/16 - Farewell, Mr. Ramone...  Joey Ramone, the lead singer of the Ramones died over the weekend.  3eb has said many a time that the Ramones were a big inspiration to them.  Perhaps that's why 3eb has covered some of their songs including, "I Wanna Be Sedated" and "Blitzkreig Bop."  I am pretty sure that Arion is the most distraught, so Wooby and I are declaring this day "Hug Arion Day."  ::::hug::::
Non-3eb news alert - Baskin Robbins is giving away free ice cream.  If you have one in your town you should take them up on the offer.
Here's a sweetie message from Tony:

4/15 - So I finally stayed online long enough to update and add a whole new edition of Ask Wooby - go enjoy it.  :)
Added several new pictures in 3eBranded.
Added several new fan art submissions in F.A.R.T.S.
Added several new names to the Meet Up Board for upcoming shows.
And Happy Easter!  You know, a day like this brings back childhood memories of Easter egg hunting.  I remember when I was 8 years old and was at this egg hunt at a country club golf course and I WON!  There were like 45832663 kids there and I found the most eggs.  I won this stuffed animal bunny that was taller than me and it rocked.  I kept that thing in my bedroom until I was 16 and "too cool" for stuffed animals.  So anyhoo, to all of you that believe that Easter is more than just a time to color and hunt eggs, like me - cheers!  Oh oh oh - it's also UNCLE SAM DAY!  That's right kiddies, I hope you all did your taxes because today is D Day.  I'm getting back 4k and I couldn't be happier! 
Hippity hoppity Easter's on it's way....
OH and one more thing... I've ordered DSL... again.  Last time I ordered it, it just never happened and then I moved.  So I've ordered it again and it should be ready to go in a few weeks.  Once I get it I'll be hosting 24-7 *free* downloads of all my 3eb bootleg and rare mp3s (except the new songs) through both Napster and AIM.  My username on both is BLONDiJEN so go ahead and add me to your hot/buddy lists. Aight?

4/12 - I fixed the link to the Fun Stuff section.  I must have coded it wrong somehow - sorry 'bout that.  Download away...
Oh!  So I was checking out this 3eb fan site today called Pissed Off Poets and the guy who runs it, Phil, has this section called "Dan Aykroyd Can't Act" that is basically wrong sung lyrics of 3eb songs.  You HAVE to check it out because some of the things people are singing are cracked out!  Thanks for the laughs, Phil!  3 cheers!  I'm going to have to think back to some of my early mistakes and submit them - I encourage you all to do the same to keep people like me amused.  :)

4/11 - Stephan emailed today to let you all know that he's chosen a Book of the Month for April for Stephan's Book Club.  So check it out along with all of the other books that Stephan has recommended in the past.  My personal favorite SJ Book is the Worst Case Scenario Handbook.  Classic!
Also, I have over 100 new lyrical theories that I'll be posting this weekend along with a new Ask Wooby.
Lastly, there's a photo of Stephan Jenkins and Simmons of Run DMC in the new Entertainment Weekly (April 13, 2002). It has the cast of "Survivor" on the cover. The article starts on pg. 42...Stephan is pictured on pg. 44.

4/8 - BRAD GAVE ME A BLACK EYE
Wooby and I had the chance to meet a BUNCH of you guys at yesterdays Long Beach Grand Prix. I just want to give shouts out to Mina and Lita - thanks for the Pier One gift card! How sweet! 
3eb was awesome - they played 2 new songs "Forget Myself" and "I Am the Conqueror." I've heard "Forget Myself" before and hearing it a second time was just.....WOW. It is the COOLEST 3eb song. I'm going to write out the lyrics today, from what I can remember. It's a song about a rock star (it was written for the movie "Rock Star") and how his woman is better off without him because he's too busy getting loaded all the time and chillin' backstage and around LA with other stars. Hmmm could this be autobiographical? JK hehe
"I Am the Conqueror" was a good song, too, but it was my first time hearing it so I can't quite recall what it was all about. All I know is that Stephan was trying to joust Arion and Tony with his mic stand. Stephan said it was for "some jousting movie," and the movie "A Knight's Tale" kind of fits that description.  I mean, how many jousting movies can there be?
During the end of "Jumper" they covered some song from the 80s. Maybe it's called "Harder They Fall" or something - I dunno - I was too young in 80s to really enjoy the music. 
I'm in the process of uploading the bootleg of yesterday's show. It's a pretty good recording, actually. My pictures are at Walgreens 1 hour development. Do any of you EVER get your pictures within 1 hour? I DON'T! I had to go to Starbucks and get a TRIPLE latte. :)
Back to the show, Stephan dedicated MDB to the fans who "came a long way." Arion cut his hair, which I was shocked over at first because I have NEVER seen Arion with short hair, but it looks WAY COOL. (what a tomcat - mrow!)  It's very British rock star to me. Some girl threw a book onstage - hmm could it be for Stephan's Book Club? It was the book The Fountainhead. I'll have to see what that book's about. 
At the end of the show, Brad threw his drumsticks. Well, it BOUNCED off my eye before Wooby caught it. I have a slight bruise on my eye lid and a busted blood vessel on my eyeball. I will probably have to go to the eye doctor tomorrow. So, this is the SECOND time I have been hit in the face by Brad's flying drumsticks in 4 months. Mebbe I shouldn't stand in the front row at every show? NO WAY! It's worth the risk to me. :) Just call me "Patch," ok? :)
Right after the show, Wooby had to take me to the airport to catch my flight home to SF. I'm sorry to report that we didn't get to harass the band backstage for information, but I'll do my best to get some more new music scoop soon.
 this is my swollen eye and the red splotch on the right side of my eyeball is the busted blood vessel :(
