    SPREAD THE WORD!!! - JANUARY
    January 09, 2013

     

    Congratulations to Brandatello who won last months "Spread The Word Contest" chosen by Mike Dirnt!

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I was super flipping impressed with the response to getting the word out about Dos! The Green Day Army are very artistic, talented, funny, and strange!  "My favorite kind of people" Alas, I must choose a winner, but before I do, I will say  my choice is based on the over all theme. There were many very creative, talented and funny entries, and yes, "I did view every one of them".

    The person I'm gonna follow is.......


    "Drum roll Tre"


    christycakes!  By  literally taking Dos to the streets and bringing a little joy to an area ravaged by Hurricane Sandy your entry showed a ton of heart! Congrats!

    Anyway that's it, but fear not, I will pick a new person to follow each month, so keep on being your bad ass, creative selves!
    See you soon!
    Mike

hi mike! I couldn't figure out how to add pictures/links into the comments. So just go on my twitter (@shes_a_rebel13) and look at my eight most recent pictures :) those are my submissions. and my instagram is @shes_a_rebel13 as well :) thanks!

Are submissions for the TRE spread the word still going on?  There hasn't been a new post for it so I'm not sure. 

 

(I just want to say congratulations on the release of the final album and the whole trilogy, guys.  Really great music as always.)

 

I'm trying to post my cover of Brutal Love on here but the word verification just isn't responding, nothing's going through......

Brandatello's picture

 

Love the trilogy! Tre is my favorite out of the three. Heres my entry.

So, I wrote this song after I heard Tre for the first time. It was inspired not only by the AMAZING album, but also the equally amazing band of course! I hope it promotes this amazing trilogy in some sort of way, and also gets a message across about what a wonderful band you all are. INSPIRING! It sums up my feelings of what the album and trilogy is about (I hope it does anyway!) 

Wake up


Find your missing pieces
To your puzzle named ‘life’
Reflect where you went wrong
As you sing just one more song
Wake up

 

Secrets spilled in the midnight hour
Like a dance of freedom and war
A spark in the dark, a reflection
On a frozen bitter sour

A mirror of destruction
Projected by a voice
A record of lost love
Marked by scars of ice and fire

Wake up


Find your missing pieces
To your puzzle named ‘life’
Reflect where you went wrong
As you sing just one more song
Wake up

Everything's fucked up
Lost between your heart and your mind
Everything's lost
You're holding on so tight-white knuckles of anxiety
Everything's in view
No way back, no where left to hide

Look how far we've come
There's a road named 'future' ahead
Behind us anger and love
Has all the rage been shed?

We're not finished yet
Not forgotten but out of sight
Never out of mind
We won't be left far behind

Wake up


Find your missing pieces
To your puzzle named ‘life’
Reflect where you went wrong
As you sing just one more song
Wake up


The only honest you'll find
Is ina drunk persons mind
Now do we reflect?
Look how far we've come

Good weighs out bad
On the scale of existence
Was that yesterday or twenty years ago?
Past lingers with every show

Wake up


Find your missing pieces
To your puzzle named ‘life’
Reflect where you went wrong
As you sing just one more song
Wake up


This is my revolution
This is what I'll prove them wrong
Like a rebel with a cause
We all have a story to tell

Where do we go?
How can you find your place?
When you're trapped between your heart and your mind

Regrets won't last
Like a secret in the wind
Soon you'll look back and laugh
Reflect upon this life

Wake up

To spread the word, I created both a tumblr and a twitter account.
I designed posters (they're on there)

PRAISE THE LORD! I've literally been trying to post that for two days and it only now worked!

924_halle's picture

FREE BEER. Now that I have your attention Mike, here's my half assed picture! I really hope that you can read it, I tried messing with the filters to make it better, but the picture was taken on my phone when it was getting dark out. But with that horrible self advertisement, here it is in all its glory:

http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&global=1&q=green+day%27s+dos&offset=192#/d5ljtyn

My Instagram is @924halle , thanks for considering me!

By the way, to everyone else posting entries, make sure your links work after you post. I've come across a  few links that either don't work or require a log in, probably because you were logged in when you copied the link. So just some advice, and good luck to everyone!

To promote Dos I hand painted a shirt and a necklace (I painted a bottle cap with the Dos cover and turned it into a necklace)...I worked really hard on these and love showing them off around town and telling people about the new album!
