   EXTREMELY excited about Slow Motion Daydream (due out on Oct 8 with a tour following it). Be sure to check out Everclearonline, 'cause they have an audio interview with Art about the album and touring. You'll need RealPlayer to be able to hear this. According to my trusted sources, here's the complete list of songs on SMD:

  • Science Fiction
  • How To Win Friends And Influence People
  • Blackjack
  • New Blue Champion (was Glorious)
  • Chrysanthemum
  • TV Show
  • Volvo-driving Soccer Mom
  • Your New Disease
  • Sunshine
  • Happy
  • Sex With A Movie Star
  • A Beautiful Life

   Well, passed the theory part of my driving test. Now comes the actual driving part and hopefully that goes okay. Went to dinner with my friends the other day and got a rootbeer float and it came with a cool A&W spoon :D Got an email from Melinda ... glad to hear she's doing good. Pam's worried about making friends in college, and I don't think I did a good job of reassuring her on that. Elaine's excited about college and I can't see why. We're purposely putting ourselves through this hell called school and I don't see how anyone can be excited. Saw Adam online today. Seems like he's doing well and skateboarding lots. Wonder why the twins aren't on AIM right now ... hope they haven't left Singapore. Hsin-Yueh's not on either ... wonder how work is going for her. Thinking about Kate and her IB score and wishing I could do something. Okay, signing off

"Slow Motion Daydream" to be released on Oct 8
Portland Bite in Portland, OR from August 30 to September 1.

Bumbershoot in Seattle, WA on September 2

Following the release of the new album, there will be a tour to promote the album that runs through Christmastime.

   In Everclear news, the new album "Slow Motion Daydream" will be out on October 8th with a tour starting that day and ending in Christmastime. Hopefully Everclear will stop by Europe (especially Dublin, 'cause I'll be there) so I can check them out. And, they'll also be playing at two concerts: Bumbershoot in Seattle, WA on September 2 and Portland Bite in Portland, OR from August 30 to September 1. Definitely something to lookforward to for you Northwestern US fans, because Everclear may play songs from the new album.
   Not concerning Everclear, well, Brazil won the FIFA world cup ... Kind of wished Germany had won, so that it'd be 4 times Brazil won it, 4 times Germany. As for the third place game, I wish Korea had won since they had done so well in the first and second rounds. But I'm still glad that sexy substitute striker Ilhan Mansiz from Turkey played :P He's yummy! I just can't get him out of my head. Boy he's all that I dare to think about. Aside from that, I'm kind of jittery about taking my theory driving test on Tuesday (and that's not even the hard part yet).

   Hey, this is the newest version of pale green strawberries. For those of you who have never visited this page before, this is an EVERCLEAR fan site. It's less devoted to Everclear news and leans more towards how I love this band. Thanks for dropping by and hearing be blabber on about their awesomeness!
   Well, the site's much neater, hopefully faster to load and more enjoyable than before. I've made a couple changes: there's not going to be a news page anymore (that proved to be too hard to manage; unfortunately senior year wasn't as easy as anyone would have thought, but let's not get into that). I also fixed up the montoya mania page so hopefully that's faster to load and more appealing. I merged the "my stories" and "your stories" sections so its just "stories" and if you want to submit any everclear stories you have, just email me and I'll put it up. I'm thinking of putting back the santa monica midi, since many people have been asking about that.
   So anyway, enjoy your stay at pale green strawberries. Sorry I've been slacking off on this page. I could come up with a million excuses, but those aren't actually reasons why I stopped working. So have fun checking stuff out. Tell your friends about it and tell me what you think.
