  • We're sharing a special featured blog from Idiot Nation member embug17. She was one of the lucky winners of the Broadway Idiot screenings at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre. Read her blog below. Enjoy!

    It was Saturday, May 4 th 2013, I was hitting the road on to a thrilling, spontaneous adventure. Berkeley bound, to see a screening of Broadway Idiot at the Berkeley Repertory. I was in deep fantasy of what this night may have in store. Thoughts of possibly meeting the guys, entered through my mind. We were going to be in Berkeley after all. We, being my mother and I, who was stoked to see the show as well. We figured we wouldn’t be surprised if the bay area boys made a grand appearance. We could only hope. Time flew, as we entered the chill and the fog of the town. Will call tickets were in my hand. All systems go! We were ready.

    As I walked through the doors of the theater, the warmth consumed me. Total comfort at last, from being outside, feeling the slight sting of the cold. The lobby of the theater was gorgeous. I walked around, as I heard the divine anthems being played from the sacred, American Idiot album. The vibes were all excited for the night. I could feel it. It would not be long before I would see how a treasure was all created. I couldn’t help but reveal a delighted grin. It was such a radical feeling to know that this theater, was where the production started. The home roots of a mighty success that made its way straight to Broadway. Stellar!

    As I was roaming, and scoping out wicked foot wear with the striking hand/ heart grenade, my eyes also stumbled upon beautiful, black lochs. Dread locks, in a updo to be exact. I did not have to look twice to recognize that enchanting individual. Adrienne Armstrong was there. Chilling out with friends on the stairs up to the theater, I see the youngest Armstrong boy, Jakob Armstrong!

  • Artist: Green Day

    Year released: 1994

    A veritable pop-punk Where's Waldo, Green Day's Dookie became an iconic cover purely based on the countless hours of examination the cover offered. An illustration by Bay Area artist Richie Bucher, the Dookie cover is a who's who of the San Francisco scene and the cultural touchstones the band walked over, including Black Sabbath and Angus Young. It's clean, chaotic, and instantly recognizable.
