-Wow, so much has happened in 2 days, it's scary.  We got the proof for the liner notes, cover, back cover, etc.  This is the final stage before actually printing the graphics.  This is terribly exciting.  We've made subtle changes to the website.  Nothing major.  One great thing is that I got the order cds thing back up!!  This means that orders can now continue!!!  As I said earlier, we are now making 2000 CDs and as of today, we have just over 1000 orders, so......ORDER YOURS TODAY!!!  Oh, we really wanna welcome Marissa Maley to the project.  She wanted to remain anonymous but changed her mind and we wanted to recognize her.  WELCOME TO THE TEAM MARISSA!!  You can find her stats on the 'people involved' link.  I promise I'll get a pic of her up soon!!  Alright guys, stay tuned, the fun stuff is starting to happen now!!  LATER!!



Tuesday February 13, 2001
-So here's the deal...we are definitely making 2000 CDs.  At this point, we're not sure of the cost.  Some things have changed in accordance to that.  Good news is, THE CDs ARE BEING PRINTED AS I TYPE THIS!!! YAY!!!  Who would have thought this thing would actually happen?!?!?  Hey, Full Range, I finally got my lazy ass up and put you guys on the bands involved list.  Sorry it took so long, major life crisis for me recently.  I just want to mention to everyone that Myke Armstrong is the man.  He made a new cover for the CD and the liner notes and they are spectacular.  If you wanna know more about this badass, go to the people involved section and check out his stats.  Thanks Myke!!  Oh, there's something wrong with the order cds form.  I haven't been receiving any orders since the server that it sits on went down.  I'm in the process of fixing it so bear with us.  Peace out for now guys...REMEMBER, 3-11-01, A DATE THAT WILL LIVE IN INFAMY!!!!


Thursday February 1, 2001
-Well, this is the final time that we are going to change our minds.  We are going to put the final count of CDs to 2000.  We have a wonderful sponsor who wishes to remain anonymous, which is cool.  Anyway, 2000 CDs, that's all, that's it.  The CD is gonna cost 5$ with $1.30 US shipping and 4$ International shipping.  Go to 'order cds' to place your order.  Peace out!



Sunday January 20, 2001
- We have taken all the pre-orders that we are taking.  Last check we had 957 pre-orders and they have kept coming in.  We've had to stop at 1000.  We are also still looking for a sponsor for the CD.  If you are interested, please email JR for details.  Thanks again guys!!


Tuesday January 9, 2001
-At the moment, we are in the process of finding out if there will be 500 cds, or 1,000.  The prices will vary per amount of CDs we decide on or can afford.  It all depends on if I can find a sponser willing to temporary donate $3,000.  All sponsers get full reimbursment, their name in the cd linear notes if they act fast, and a free copy of the tribute album.  If anyone is interested, contact me at: ASAP!  But as far as the prices for the CD's go, I'm expecting the price to be around $6.55 or something. That would include the cd and shipping (unless you're international, then it'll be a tiny bit more). I will email everyone I recieved a preorder from with instructions on when to send payment and all that information.  Check back here in a few days to see if I made an announcement doing so, if you didn't get the email, then one, you weren't one of the 500, or I didn't get the preorder at all. But I won't send that email out until I know for sure if it's going to be 500 or 1,000 cds available.

For those bands that have been given the green light for the album, if you have not sent your band photo's and/or thankyou's, do so now before it's too late. If you don't, your face and thankyou's will not be known by those who get the cd. Also in the news of the 311 Tribute Album, we have finally settled on a cover for the album, I really love it.  Our own Lauren Potts did it all with my little dude that I drew around the time we came across the title name for the album (which is: Standing on the shoulders of giants: A 311 Tribute).  So if
you want a peep at it, go here.  Tell us what you think of it, but don't get too compfy with it, acording to Lauren, she said she has a few changes here and there, she'd like to tool around with, but this is the giffs of it.  (Link to cover)

We wanna welcome Laura Saffer to our quaint little project!!  She's doing the CD Layout!!  THANK YOU LAURA!!!! We also wanna welcome 3 new bands to the project.  These will be the last 3 that will be added.  Thank you to Haze, Chump and Relese.  You guys rock!!!


Sunday December 10, 2000

-We added another band!!  Welcome to the team Mass Coexistence, we're glad to have you!  As of today, we have 14 more CDs available for pre-order.  So don't wait, get it now.  If we go over, the last few people will not be able to recieve a CD.  We will let you know if you don't make it.  Sorry it has to be this way, but we could only get 500.  This thing is gonna happen!  I can't believe it!!  PEACE OUT FOR NOW!!


Friday December 8, 2000

-Well gang, I have good news and I have bad news.  Good news is, we have 440 pre-orders in so far.  Bad news, we're capping it at 500.  That means that if you have not already pre-ordered your copy of the CD, you need to do so NOW!!!  Aight, we also have to ask if there is anyone that would like to sponsor the making of the CD?  We at the 311 Tribute Album Project are not rich by any means and are asking for someone or several to sponsor us.  Email JR @ if you are interested.  If you do decided to sponsor the CD, you WILL be paid back in full.  We just need the money upfront to get the CDs out.  Thanks again for all your support!!  PEACE!!


Tuesday December 5, 2000
-We added 4 more clips!!!!  I wanna welcome a new band as well!  Thanks for signing on Self Center Project!!  Also, I talked to Peter Raspler today and the new 311 album is coming out really well in the studio so far!!  He said and I quote, "you haven't heard the best yet."  I don't know how excited you guys are, but I know that I am elated!!  I cannot wait for this new CD.  Anyway, go in there and check out the clips!!  Let me or JR know what you think!!


Monday December 4, 2000
-Man, have we got some updates for you guys!!  Here's what we have.  I wanna say HELLO to some new bands that we've got on the project.  WHAT'S UP TO: Hempus, Nine Foot Zero, LXIX, Superpunch!, and Delta 9!!!!  Welcome to the project.  Even more exciting than adding new bands, we now have CLIPS FROM THE CD!!  I couldn't believe it either!  Go to the 'listen to clips' link and check 'em out!  Let us know what you think of the clips by emailing us!  We wanna know what you love and what you hate.  Things are shaping up rather nicely here!  Looks as though 3-11-01 is going to be a reality!!  THANKS FOR ALL THAT HAVE HELPED US THROUGH ALL THIS!!  LOVE YOU!!!  Peace out for now!



Saturday November 25, 2000
-Well guys, it seems as though the voting booth for the poetry section was fairly cheat proof.  I wanna say congratulations to Aurora for her poem "Rhythmic Evolution."  She was the winner of our poetry contest and will subsequently be included in the CD booklet for the 311 Tribute CD.  I don't know if you guys know this or not but The 311 Tribute CD Site is now featured on 311's official site ( under the "Happenings" and we are also featured on  This is amazing news for the staff here!!  We were so excited!!  I wanna personally thank Joan O'Reily as well as Peter Raspler for making this happen!!  THANKS GUYS, WE COULDN'T DO THIS WITHOUT WONDERFUL SUPPORT!!  And to the bands involved: DEMOS, DEMOS, DEMOS!!  We need them!!!!!!!!  Talk to JR, let him know the status, but we need those demos.  Thanks, and PEACE for now!!!


Friday November 3, 2000
-Well guys, I must apologize for not having updated in a month.  I've been busy as crap at work lately.  Anyway, we've got some stuff added to the site.  We want to welcome 2 brand new bands to the scene.  Thanks Shaft Zero and Southside Hero for your contributions.  Also, we've added a place for you to vote for your favorite poem on the site.  Basically we didn't have enough room in the CD cover to put all of them in so we want you to pick your favorite.  I  made this voting booth un-cheatable.  You can only vote once.  Lets's see, oh yeah.  BANDS, GET YOUR DEMOS IN BEFORE DECEMEBER OR YOU WILL NOT BE INCLUDED IN THE CD!  Sorry to be so harsh but it's getting to be crunch-time and we need to pick up the pace.  So, unless otherwise instructed by JR, you have until Dec. 1.  Lemme think...I believe that's it for now.  PEACE!!!


Friday October 6, 2000
-Once again, we are humbly asking for anyone to help us out here at the ole 311 Tribute CD Site.  Basically now that things are rolling along, we need to start making this CD known to the general public.  We wanted to hold off so that the Unity List members had first take at the pre-orders.  It's now time to go global.  If you'd like to help advertise, go to the link on the site entitled 'advertisements' and see how you can help.  Thanks a lot guys, this project would be nothing without your help!!  PEACE!!



Wednesday October 4, 2000
Well, demos are coming in and and things are taking shape. The March 11th, 2001 release date still looks good to go. For those bands that have their grace periods, Remember you have til Nov. 1st.  For those bands that are unsure of where they are at this point, you need to contact me immediatly at:  We can arrange a grace period for you as well, but if the bands lolly gagging around can't do it, tell me now because we have at least 10 other bands that want to catch a ride on this train.  Thanks to those who have sent their demos, and for those who haven't please contact me and tell me where your band is at. Thanks!
