Two Green Day Auctions: Punknews.org, et al and Grammy Foundation

PunkNews.org, Paper+Plastic and Limited Pressings recently began a sweet auction for Haiti relief that I was going to post about, but then the Grammys happened, and I forgot about it. The auction is ongoing and has so far raised around $16,500 for Haiti relief. All proceeds go to my favorite organization, Doctors Without Borders. Green Day vinyls are being auctioned, so if you are lucky to have a record player (I’m not so lucky), go and take a look at all of the punk artists on auction now.

The Grammys MusiCares Foundation is auctioning off some Green Day-related items as well, though these aren’t for Haiti relief and some of them have a high starting bid threshold. Check them out, though. There is a signed Les Paul guitar, signed photographs of the band, and a signed vinyl copy of 21st Century Breakdown. While the auction isn’t for Haiti relief, it is for a good cause nonetheless. You can find out more about MusiCares here.

You are a Hot Mess, Billie Joe!

So, I’m watching this clip of the boys (actually Billie Joe since Mike and Tre never get a word in edgewise during these interviews) talk with TV Guide Network backstage at the Grammys the other night. In this clip, Billie called himself a “hot mess,” which kinda freaked me out a bit, because I’ve called him a “hot mess” on this blog before. Dude! Are you stalking me? Hmmm? (And yep, I know it was the name of the roadie band! I’m joking, people!!)

Anyway, here’s a nice little clip found by Green Day LIVE on Tour on Facebook after Green Day won their Grammy on Sunday night for “Best Rock Album” and the American Idiot cast performed “21 Guns” with the band. Enjoy, you hot messes out there!
