Green Day fan documentary: submit your stories and fanart!

Recommended Posts

Beerjeezus

I believe this is a very beautiful idea. Not sure if I have anything noteworthy to share but this is really awesome :ga: does this have anything to do with your mentioning of Billie Joe in your academic writing?

Cool idea! I would love to submit something about my tour experience this time around, but it is part of a larger piece I'm working on. Maybe I can rewrite that section so it's not exactly the same to submit.

This is such a wonderful project, I'll think about submitting something, it'd be amazing to be a part of it! I hope it all goes well, maybe Green Day will get to see it one day :ga:

Six is fine, there's no limit! Just read your submission, it's fab :D I had the same feeling when I heard Awesome as Fuck, too.

It'd be great to have you in the book! I hope they will :ga: I don't want to be an annoying fan giving them things they don't really want but at the same time, I feel like they're nice guys who'd humour me if I did give them a copy :lol: so maybe I will.

I'd definitely love to hear about it! It's great that so many people are writing up their experiences, a few others have told me that too and it just goes to show how important their tour is to us.

Thanks 💚 I'm sure if you did write anything it'd be a great read. It does :lol: I had to reference American Idiot to explain the title and then I used some of his quotes on the fandom.

Hi Maria,

Hey I'm a massive memorabilia collector. Just wondering what the different wristband colours were for the Revolution Radio tour or did they vary from country to country??

Hi! You mean the pit wristbands? They varied depending on the venue. Most of the European venues didn't have them but all of the American ones did. I haven't got around to uploading the American ones yet but this is what the UK ones looked like:

The deadline to be part of the book is TODAY! If you need longer let me know and don't stress over being a few hours late, it's not a super strict deadline.

I've had some amazing submissions and I can't wait to share the book with you guys :D

Can I send my submission tomorrow? I finally know what I'll write, but creating story in English takes ages to me :lol:

Until what hour are you taking submissions? I have some portion of what I want to send in ready to go, but I still need some time to craft the rest.

Tomorrow is fine if you need more time :) 

I'm not printing until the 15th, but making the book will take a while so I wanted to give myself plenty of time to sort out the majority of submissions. A few after the deadline will be totally fine, though.

So the book is finished and it looks amazing. It's definitely been one of the most popular parts of the exhibit - quite a few people were looking at it when I went to check on it yesterday.

Thank you so much to everyone who submitted stories and photos. Together we've made a fab little document of Green Day's impact on their fans and why our community is so special. I'll be sending out the photos of each person's pages soon.

If you'd like to buy a copy of the book please let me know - if enough people want a copy I may be able to print it cheaper! Usually it costs about £15 (GBP) / $20 (USD) and I'm guessing with a bulk order it will be a few pounds/dollars less. I won't make any money from the sales.

 

Here's the main project in this week's exhibition:

A few of my favourite images

See more here: http://mariagloriaharvey.com/my-rage-my-love-my-life

If you like the work please do share it with your Green Day friends and anyone else who might be interested! I really want it to reach a lot of people and to allow fandom in adulthood to be taken more seriously.

So about buying the book:

Right, so I've put the book in my Bigcartel store for £13.99 plus postage. In 1-2 weeks - to give everyone time to place their orders - I'll make a bulk order and if I do get it even cheaper than this, I'll refund the difference to everyone who bought one.

http://mariagloriaharvey.bigcartel.com/product/book-my-rage-my-love-my-life-a-collection-of-green-day-fan-stories

This makes it a more official sale so you know your money is safe, and I won't end up with more books than I can sell. Bear in mind though that I may not get it any cheaper than £13.99 - it depends how many orders I get - and that it'll be a while before it ships.

Hope this all makes sense, if you have any questions just ask! I really can't wait to share the book with all of you :D

I'll probably make another book one day since this is an ongoing project, so maybe you can be part of it then :) You can still submit your story to be featured on the tumblr if you like.

Thank you! I do hope it can be a reminder of what live music should be and how no one can take that from us.
