Happy Spring! Reports are coming back from
fans for peace who have been to the massive protests all
over the country, from New York to Indiana to Texas to California!
Stay tuned for photos and written accounts! Those folks
will score some free Goo stuff as an extra thank-you for
their participation..... And new monthly contests and such
coming soon :-)
Also, just added a new section -- rants
& essays. So if you feel the need to rant about
politics, there's a place for all the world to see. We've
got one awesome rant so far, from an anonymous peacegoober
in Indianapolis -- check it out here!
And don't forget about the
Love & Light
The site is being wonky again. I do apologize.
Working with my web host to set things right again. Thanks
for your patience.
Real quick -- just saw a rockin' interview
with Mike -- Mike, talking! That's a novelty
in and of itself, so it's extra cool to see what he has
to say about politics and environmental issues..... Check
out some excerpts here!
Contest winners and other fun stuff coming
later this week.....

TONS of new stuff for
ya this weekend!! First off...... Who was looking
closely at the Tour Diary last month?? Did you see
the great big IMPEACH BUSH sign popping out of the
audience?? Pretty cool...... Maybe a coincidence,
maybe not...... Thanks, Goos!! For more pictures from
Las Vegas, check out the photo
Even in their down time, the Goos are keeping
up with politics -- check out the recent statements from
John about music
education & politics. Primaries are happening all over
the place..... Are YOU registered to vote?? Check out rockthevote.org
and make your voice heard! There are lots of discussions
on the message board about different candidates. And remember,
you can also get involved with local political and activism
groups -- you're never too young to volunteer, and a lot
of groups are looking for youth outreach organizers. Check
to find volunteer opportunities in your area. Ellie

New month, new FFP Book Club contest!! Check
out the Book Club page
for contest details and the next book.....
Meanwhile, the forms on the site are fixed,
so you can now submit stuff with confidence...... Thank
you Katherine for letting me know they
were broken in the first place. If you submitted something
through the site in the last two months and are confused
because I never posted it, please just send it through again!!
Check out the Get Involved page
for interactive stuff you can sound-off on -- including
a new Question Of The Month!
This one is all about looooooooove! We've got a fresh stock
of GGD guitar picks, courtesy of Damage and Absolute Goo,
along with a bunch of other rockin' prizes that I've discovered
in my spring cleaning......
Like Surprises?? The next
contest is going to be a little different than the ones
in the past..... Over the next six weeks, there are a lot
of protests, vigils, and street actions happening, leading
up to March 20th, which is the anniversary of the Iraq invasion.
I know you'll want to get out there just to meet new people
and raise your voice, but how about a little extra incentive??
We've got all kinds of stuff floating around here, from
CDs to autographed ChameleonWest brochures to Goo news clippings......
So everybody that sends pictures or stories from a protest
will automatically get some swag! Plus, you'll have a chance
to win a prize pack with lots of GOOdies :-) Check out the
upcoming events page to
find what's going on in your community!

My host has been doing some funky things with
the site, so I just found out the forms don't work. D'oh!
Hopefully we'll get that fixed in the next few days......
CGI was invented as a torture device, I swear. Thanks for
your patience :-)
I'm baaaaaaack! After a month out west, things
have really started piling up around here! Whew! Hope the
new year is treatin' ya well..... And without further ado......
Vegas was a rockin' time, despite some serious
communication issues around general admission..... But it
all turned out okay, and the show was amazing! Lotsa peace
signs from Robby and John, and a happy reception of the
scrapbooks made by a fellow peacegoober..... Great work,
Couldn't sneak cameras inside this time, but check
out some pre- and post-show pics of the Big Pink Banner!

gorgeous face in the photo above, please e-mail me
or post on the message
Speaking of which, it's as busy as ever, check
it out if you're in the mood for some mental stimulation
As it turns out, we don't have quite enough
hi-res photos to make a whole calendar..... Maybe next year!!
New FFP merch will be on the back burner for a little while,
since I'm gonna be up to my ears in other projects and looking
for a job. But more site updates WILL be upcoming!! Stay
Love & Light
Never try to quit your job, apply to grad
schools, shop for holiday presents, and prepare for three
trips at the same time - in the middle of flu season. Doesn't
work too well! So Fans For Peace is on hold for about a
month, till I get back.

Now that the birthday celebration is over, we'll

to your local independent bookseller or library and grab yourself
a copy! It'll be a quick(er) read, I promise!!

peace banners at over 20 shows on the Gutterflower tour, folks
going to protests all over the place, shout-outs in the Tour
Diary, and tons of fantastic discussions on the message
