Since everyone we know was fighting end-of-tour depression, we thought that this month's Song X should be something fun! There's something here for everyone ... games, sound files, video files - you name it!
- in hiding: the pj word search
- "there's a lot to be said for nowhere...": a cool slider puzzle
Note: you will need a java-enabled browser to view these games.
- interactive "going mobile!": An enhanced version of our "Yield" end-of-tour map for you to print out and color! Color in the cities for the shows you went to, use another color for the shows you almost went to, another color for the shows you won't miss next time... =)
sound & vision
"Goat" [mp3 - 1,685K]: If you haven't heard this, from the very first demo tape PJ made as a band (when Eddie flew up from San Diego to audition), you don't know what you're missing. =) (And if you can tell us more about the history of this "song," please let us know!)
Q: "Are you gonna do the Star Spangled Banner one of these days?"
Eddie: "Uhh...yeah, but i would play electric guitar like Jimi Hendrix...and i'd have it be wireless so i'd start the song at home plate, and i'd run around and then slide into home to finish it off...and I imagine the crowd would pretty much boo me, it would be a worse showing than Roseanne..."

Yep, it's what we've all been waiting for: Mr. Vedder's rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" from the second NBA playoff game earlier this year:
(And no, we can't tell you where we got this from, so don't ask; grab these files while you can, who knows how long we'll be able to keep them up!)

If this didn't cheer you up, well - remember, the tour's gotta end before another one can begin. Thanks again to PJ for a summer to remember!
