    And. . . . . Action. . . . . .Hello my friends. . . old and new. . . . Welcome to day number 20 of the Daily Goo. . . . where every day is like a little peek into a keyhole to the absurd and sometimes informative . . .(and if we're lucky. . . entertaining). . . .well. . . it's great to have you here. . . .

    We begin with more of an observation than a question. . . tell me. . . does it seem as though the world has gone completely nuts ?. . . . . .that's all. . .

    OK . . . time for some letters. . . because we get lots of 'em. . .Here's one from Lauren Fahrer from Chicago, IL. . . she writes. . .

    I'm a new Goo fan, so this question may be old news to the long time devotee, but..... Is the child on the cover of "A Boy Named Goo" related to anyone in the band? Wait there's more.... How did you decide on that picture and title for that album? Thx, Lauren

    Ahhhh. . .ok. . . The boy on the cover of Boy Named Goo is not related to anyone in the group. . . but. . .he is related to the photographer. . .his name is Vance Geller and the little boy is his son. . . who i believe is about 16 0r 17 right now. . .Boy Named Goo had some different artwork originally. . .it was based on the Johnny Cash song. . . A Boy Named Sue. . . but we were having some turmoil in the group at the time . . . that's when Mike joined the band. . .when all the dust settled we decided to change the artwork. . .the old one just didn't seem fitting anymore. . .so when we saw Vance's photograph it seemed fitting, (click on picture 1). . . the band was having a bit of a rebirth itself. . . hence. . . our boy named goo. . .you know, it's bizarre . . . we had some trouble with some retail outlets...who shall remain nameless. . .who didn't want to carry the album because they felt there was some weirdness going on with the juice on the little boy's face. . .they thought the kid was beaten up. . . . man . . . some people need to chillllllll out !. . . it's raspberry juice. . . what sort of sick mind would think anything else. . . or perhaps i've answered my own question. . .or it was answered for us. . . . thanks for the letter. . .

    Here's one from Andrea Herrera of Laguna Niguel CA . . she writes. . .

    Although you are undisputedly my favorite band, I have come to love another bands music almost as much as yours. I first heard them when I went to see you play...they're FONO. I was able to meet them during they're Underdog Tour and they were all great (they mentioned you guys a couple of times). I took pictures with them and now, all I need to hopefully meet you guys, take a few pictures and I'll be blissfully content! Ciao!

    Yhea. . . i would agree. . . FONO is an amazing band. . .they were out with us for quite a long time on the mp3 tour last fall. . . cool blokes. . . for those of you in the Los Angeles area they're playing the dragonfly on July 24th. . . . you should check it out if you can. . .they put on a great show . . thanks for the letter Jennifer. . .

    We're getting together some great picture sets for next week. . .some pics of Mike from the Marathon he ran in S.F. a week ago. . .some never ever ever published photos of the banged up dc-9 after our little spinoff the runway in Italy last December. . .pretty wild. . . .keep checking the gallery . . . we update it about once a week. . .

    Hey. . . check out some photos from a show we did on the 19th of December at Eagle Army Base. . .it's in Tuzla, Bosnia. . . . we played for the troops there in a makeshift athletic complex. . . (sort of a bunker in our opinion). . .it was surrounded in sandbags and barbed wire. . . . oh. . . did i mention covered in 3 feet of snow?. . . . wild. . . Everyone was great . . .awesome experience. . .we brought a huuuuuge amount of toys we collected at our hometown shows in Buffalo. . . .they were distributed to bosnian children in the area. . . .if you click on picture 2 you'll see a sample photo of us with some of the officers at the base. . .there's some photos of the show located in the gallery. . . . and for real. . . good luck to all the people over there. . . we appreciated the hospitality. . .

    Happy Birthday wishes go out to Matt Coban from Allendale, NJ, Matthew Muhl from McGregor, TX, Daniel Au from San Francisco, CA, Joy Mosley from Raleigh, NC, Tracie Weymouth from McHenry, IL, Theresa Battagliotti from Edison, NJ, Jan Zorn from Millbrook, AL and Blakely Cornish from The Woodlands, TX. . . .
