7/26/01: tidbits (5 in all)
...tidbit 1: despite yesterdays mispronounciations and boy band hoopla, "Island" hit #10 on todays TRL countdown. Looks like the people are casting some serious votes!
...tidbit 2: a reminder that there is some sort of weezer special (not sure if its brand new or a re-run) TONIGHT 7/26, at 10:30 PM (EST, i *think*), and whatever it is, is also showing on 7/30 at 12:30 AM. As I write its 7:30 on the West Coast and I see a Blink 182 special on Mtv. so maybe its "staggered" for other time zones....
...a-hah! someone just wrote in saying its at 8:30 PM PST, which matches the 10:30 PM EST i was told. ok, lets find out what it is that theyre showing...
...ah. its the Washington DC WHFS "convention" Hooptie tour show. Nice!
...Tidbit #3 A group of fans has gone to wherever they tape the Tonight Show in LA and are camping out in an attempt to get into the show for tomorrows taping and show support for the band! Join them if you can! I dont know where it is, exactly, I beleive its NBC studios in Burbank, but thats as far as I know...
Tidbit #4 ...today we flew from Philadelphia to L.A....Lots of thunderstorms enroute led to some "rough air" of several types on the plane. Everyone was tired and have to get up early tomorrow for the Leno taping, so its bedtime!
