Happy New Year from New York City – or more specifically, Brooklyn!

What can I say about 2009? Well, a lot, but I’ll spare you the details. Let’s suffice it to say that Green Day helped get me through a pretty tough year of genocide-related research and activities. Through following Green Day this year, I have met some great folks from the entire spectrum of Green Day fans and a multitude of nationalities. And I even got to meet Billie Joe and Tre. So while I’m currently sick and broker than sin at the moment, it’s been one of those years that I will never regret, even the genocide part. I was able to travel to Europe twice (once to see Green Day in London), out to California twice (to see American Idiot – The Musical as well as attend Fake New Year’s with the band), out to San Antonio (and guess who I saw there?), and four other Green Day shows in the New York area. As to genocide, both conferences that I presented at turned out to be pretty good. If you’d like to see one of my presentations, you can view it here and scroll down to Tanya Elder.

It’s been a great year but the time has come to say farewell to 2009.

Tomorrow, 2010 will be upon us as we leave the first decade of the 21st century behind in the dust. For the most part, I’m going to have to say good riddance to it. This first decade of the new century has been turbulent, life-shattering and plain awful. But at least we’re all still here, I suppose. Who knows what the new decade will bring? Let’s hope only good things as we continue on the road to the Breakdown.

There’s more great stuff coming from Green Day in 2010, and I hope you’ll stick around to enjoy the band and my quaint little blog. Remember, I’m only blogging about Green Day through to the official end of the 21st Century Breakdown current tour, whenever that happens in late 2010. So until then, here’s a calendar made by the kids (and somewhat proofed by me) over at the Green Day Community to highlight each month of 2010 with Green Day views and facts.

Adrienne and Billie Joe Armstrong Wallpaper by Naomi Lir

Billie Joe and Adrienne, "Christian and Gloria," by Naomi Lir

Naomi Lir, a.k.a., BillieJoesEntourage, has created a nice “Christian and Gloria”-type wallpaper from a second photograph taken at the American Idiot opening, a reverse image of the one below of Adrienne and Billie, both of which show off Adrienne’s beautiful tattoos. You can download a large version of the above wallpaper here or by clicking on the image above. Check out more of Naomi’s work at her DeviantArt site as well.

I don’t post often about the wives or family members of Green Day. For one thing, the band is pretty private about their lives, and personally, it’s none of my business. I make an occasional exception for Adrienne Armstrong, however. From what I can tell, she is pretty neat and incredibly gorgeous, and it’s obvious that after 15 years of marriage, Billie and Adrienne are in love. And it’s a beautiful thing in this day and age of temporary rock star marriages.

People find this blog, according to my search engine stats, by looking for variations of “Adrienne and Billie” moreso than any other aspect of Green Day. I have only posted two photographs of them together, a really hot one of them for their anniversary this year (hey, what, it was published!), and the one below at American Idiot in Berkeley. These two posts are the most consistent photographs or subject that people stumble upon.
