Happy Easter! I found this
while trolling around on thirdeyeblind.com today and thought I'd share
with the folks that still visit me. Please go to the 3eb main site
and sign the petition that Star Fucker (official 3eb blogger) is
My life is measured out in albums I have loved. We try to make those
On November 18, THIRD EYE BLIND is going to release three new songs from
our up coming album, Ursa Major. It’s been five years since we put out
our last album. Since then, the options on how to release music have
All of these options made us ask: What’s an album? How does one want to
encounter it? Reaching people with music is our challenge and
purpose—how should we do it? Here’s what we think.
Albums are the most vital and compelling art form in my life. Bohemian
Rhapsody is my favorite opera just by virture of brevity! I grew up with
headphones and liner notes, finding my identity through albums, and I
have spent my life making them.
Led Zeppelin, every album (cept presence!) sounds dangerous and
compelling to this day. The Police's first three albums are still
liberating and exotic. The Velvet Underground, Prince, Cat Stevens, The
Clash, Joy Division, Tribe Called Quest, Jane's Addiction, and most
influential to me, Camper Van Beethoven—their albums owned me probably
more than I owned them.
I spent last year getting crushed by the raconteurs, justice, the foals,
MIA, and the kings of leon.
I can’t wait to put out Ursa Major in hopes that others will feel about
it the way I do about bands I love. I personally won’t feel like Ursa
Major is done until I put the vinyl on the turn table and until I’m
holding the CD in my hand.
I prefer albums to singles and mix tapes and playlists. I still put
vinyl on my turntable and freak out about how good Icky Thump sounds
recorded on 16 track tape heads.
However, the album was created by the limitations of vinyl--about forty
five minutes and then expanded to the cd--about eighty minutes. Artists
like The Beatles, the Beach Boys, and Pink Floyd made cohesive pieces of
art from these limitations.
Albums were also created so that record executives could make cash.
Albums require huge time commitments and budgets and then lots of
promotion and album cycles and of course key tracks and hit singles, and
payola, and getting signed and getting dropped, and 360 deals, and a
very few people at the top of corporations who are interested in
quarterly statements and ameliorating risk and who know what's best for
We love albums, we also feel limited by them. All i am saying is your
website can now be your album, an ongoing ever-changing one that grows
and morphs and reflects your creative impulses as you have them. Grab
the moment of a song and share it the night you finished it. Make art
that you have for it and post it. Then go play some shows and record
some more. Physical and digital releases can interconnect and enhance
The album cycle is endless, the connection between band and audience is
unbroken. How fluid and creatively freeing. And the best part is, you
don't have to get permission form a boss in order to do it. Yay!
This all seems so much more democratic to me. Fewer people at the top
will become billionaires this way, but more people will make a living
making music. More bands who must be heard but couldn’t make a physical
album have a chance. More music is available to kids like I was whose
very identity depends on finding it. These are the days!
And while we are at it, I think the hit single is arcane as well. The
songs that have resonated the longest with 3EB's audience sometimes
haven't even been on our albums (see "slow motion").
Oil paintings require oil paint in order to exist, it's true. Music can
exist and thrive in all kinds of formats--not just albums or singles.
Maybe your best canvas is a website. Still friends?
I know that 3EB is launching a new website soon and we are giving it a
lot of creative attention. It will be a device to engage our music,
find, and share with others around music. We see it as one big digital
album that will also go with our physical albums.
Finally, this is not an "us against them" argument. Majors continue to
support hugely entertaining albums and I have worked with a lot of
people at majors (like WEA) who care passionately about music. They are
not going away and neither is the album.
I'm saying that choices are
exploding. Albums are not the only way, and perhaps not even the most
creative and effective way. Then again, they may be the way for you.
Third Eye Blind is going to keep making records because we like them.
But we are also going to put up songs like the three we are putting out
on Nov 18th for download.
We might also in the future post a song when we record it and then maybe
put out the album later.
WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT WE ARE DOING! We don’t think anyone else does
either and we love it. We consider these to be exciting times to be lost
in. I hope you have the choice and I hope you continue to find
yourselves and each other through music.
10/06/08 - Stephan's Blog #2
here's the thing. i have known the
feeling of that guiltless and free erotic moment where your legs feel
free and you step up and say with the soul of provocation finally taking
the floor within you where you do not rewrite or seccond guess yourself
and you move beyond authentic to that "oh know you did not just say
that" place knowing where i'm provoked, your provoked and somehow from
there, we're elligable for peace in the muse that music brings.
so with that said, i am hoping today to finish the lyrics with an open
heart and a funny mind full of flicker.
09/24/08 - Stephan's Blog #1
Yesterday was the first day of fall
and oh do I feel the world changing all around me. I went to the
Treasure Island music festival in San Francisco this weekend. I went to
see the kills and the Raconteurs—they were both so good! And noboby
clapped. Those poor sad hipsters. They are so nervous about having their
choices impugned they could barely risk a cheer.
Lets get back to fearless I say. And that brings me to my album. Here we
are today in the studio and tony is playing guitar on a new song called
“Why Can’t You Be.” He’s been getting these gorgeous blues tones
lately—fender strat through a fender showman and a movaje 2x12 cabinet.
Tony can play guitar like the devil himself. When he’s done, I’m going
to fly to Seattle where my friend Kimya Dawson is going to sing and she
sounds like an angel, but that is a story to tell on a different blog.
It’s a duet by the way.
I don’t know you, but I love you all for you are all made of lions!
The band is in Japan touring, and
when they get back they will finish the album. Ursa Major is the
Americans, we dream of a President who is honest, personable,
intelligent, and wise.
We want a leader with courage and integrity who has known the struggles
of an everyday American. A lot of people have stopped believing that may
even be possible.
I haven't stopped believing. I support Barack Obama because he is that
This campaign for the presidency is
unparalleled in history. Our need for an honest, fresh-thinking leader
could not be more urgent. Americans are hungry for change and Barack
Obama will bring that change when he is elected.

check out my page and make a donation of any size. My
fundraising goal is $1000.
Mista Jenkins has been quite a busy
man. Over the past couple weeks, Stephan has taken it upon himself
to speak at college campuses across the great state of Pennsylvania
about candidate Barack Obama, and the importance of student involvement.

5/22/07 - My Vegas Show Review
On Saturday, I waddled into the Joint
at the Hard Rock to get my 3eb on. Over 7 mos. pregnant, I had a lot
of people looking at me cross-eyed like I took a wrong turn into the venue
from Babies R' Us. Picture me, big as a house, walking into a
standing room only show. A bald security guard named Wade asked me
if I was pregnant. Sarcastically, I replied, "no, I'm just
naturally this fat." I think I made him feel weird. He
offered to SEAT me in the disabled section after I confessed that I was
indeed very pregnant. I was like YEAH-YEAH to the YEAH-YEAH!
So he escorted me and my entourage to the riser in the middle of the
theatre and promptly pulled out a chair for me to sit 4 ft. above the
floor and my group to stand behind me. Needless to say, Princess Jen
took full advantage of this opportunity to 1. sit and 2. use the height
advantage to grab some great pics.
To say the show was great would be an
understatement. Sure, Tony had some guitar probs, and Stephan's
vocals were slightly affected by the desert air, but it was really a great
show. (Hey Stephan, this is why Celine Dion has a "no air
conditioning" clause in her contract at Caesars, it's like 90 degrees
in there and humid like the dirrrty south.) My favorite part is
about midway through the show when they bring out the sofas and do a few
songs acoustically. It really brings back great memories of the
Bonfire Tour circa 1998. (Jeez, I've been around a long time.)
Stephan surprised me with his bongo playing
skills. I'm sure there's a more fancy name for this drum he uses and
I'm sure he would not hesitate to correct me, but I can only describe it
as a bongo. The man has rhythm! It was a joy to hear Can't Get
Away from You. I don't think I have heard that live in at least a
few years, it's such a great summer song. My unborn daughter really
got a kick (pardon the pun) out of Brad's drum solo. My innards were
nearly shredded from the kicks and punches! I do believe this is the
first 3eb show I've ever walked out of to visit the ladies room! But
After the show, we went
"backstage" to visit. Tony's entire family tree appeared
to be present, it was very crowded. I managed to snag a minute with
Stephan. He first asked if I heard his shout out to me before How's
It Going to Be. He dedicated the song to "darling
Jen." I told him I didn't know it was for ME, there is a lot of
Jen's out there. Besides, I thought I was Princess Jen. (just
kidding) The only "news" I got out of him was that he was
full of joy this tour and it was all directly linked to having Leo, the
new bassist, on board.
Stephan, may I remind you that you
have a bet to settle with the people. You said the new record would
be out before my baby is due. Well, you've got till August 7 so you
Here are pics from the show, enjoy:
Also, Gavin sent me this
link to a video he made with Stephan this past weekend and clips from
the Vegas show so CHECK IT OUT because it is superb!
5/5/07 - Happy Cinco de Mayo!
Drink a Corona for me, I'm 7 mos. pregnant! Anyhoo, I updated the
tour dates to the right --->.
Stephan and Tony went on Alice radio
in SF this morning to announce the 10 year anniv. shows. They played
a new song called "Don't
Like Me Now" (<-- click to download) that Adam/TVCY
has posted online. Here are pics:
Stephan will be on Alice 97.3 in SF

ticket info yet, stay tuned
For the 10th anniversary of the release of Third Eye Blind's 1st album the band will be playing at the Fillmore on March 13th & 14th (tickets will be sold for March 13th first and March 14th when the 13th sells out). These shows will be filmed for broadcast on HDNet as well as normal broadcast and release on DVD. 3EB wants to invite it's hardcore fans to these shows as they will be special events with set-lists containing songs not played in years and new tracks as well as 3EB favorites.
Nothing is confirmed as yet, but 3EB is looking into making arrangements for a fan event at a hotel where fans can stay for these shows. We will keep you posted as more information becomes available on ticket sales and special events.
If there was ever a time to make the trek across country to see the band in action, this is the time...so make your plans now!
Hope you all had a wonderful
Thanksgiving! Here is some 3eb news for you.
The band will be playing the Fiesta
Bowl kickoff party (vanessa carlton is also playing) on New Years
Eve. It's going to be on TV in the US on Fox. Check your local
listings. I'm going to try and make it since it's in Tempe,
AZ. If I do you'll get the full report!
Next, 3eb fan Sal wants you all to
read this article:
"I get "Alternative
Press" magazine because I'm into a lot of modern punk minus the
emo bands and such, and apparently Panic at the Disco's guitarist is a big
fan of third eye blind, and they have a 2 or 3 page interview with the
guitarist of Panic at the disco talking to Stephan Jenkins about writing
music, his band, and the 4th record. He (SJ) talks a lot about the 4th
record, and unlike his other interviews, he gives a lot of information on
him writing it, how he does it, what state he's at with the band and how
optimistic he is about his future doings. There are a few pictures of full
page pictures of Stephan which is also pretty cool. The interview is in
the November issue of "Alternative Press" magazine (it has a
picture of "My Chemical Romance" on the front of it.) I really
suggest you or any 3eb fan to read it." Here is the article in
Also, this is way off but 3eb fan
Suzanne wants everyone to know that Stephan will be a guest speaker again
at the Kauai
Music Festival in August 2007. On a personal note, I went to
Kauai on my honeymoon in 2004 and it is absolutely the most beautiful
place on earth. If you haven't gone let me assure you it is hands
down the best Hawaiian Island and you must go.
Howdy! Third Eye Blind played a
private concert for Argent Mortgage on 11/14/06 at the House of Blues in Las
Vegas. Below are the only 2 pics I managed to snap. Stephan says he
is making slow but sure progress on finishing lyrics for album #4. He's
also contemplating a tattoo of
the "art nun" for his shoulder. (he was kidding, but that's his fave
show.) Maybe she'll crack a whip and get him workin'! ;) The
show was excellent. Slow Motion was replaced with Monotov's Private Opera,
a song sure to be on the next record, along with Camp Fire aka "Tony's Song."
Watch Jr. Fredianelli rock out with the
band to NLYG:
I'll post pics and notes from some shows in
October very soon. Stay posted, SJ.com is comin' back jack!
Howdy! Long time no talk! So, I had a sales trip to NYC planned next week for Monday - Thursday to fly back Thursday afternoon. 3eb goes and books some east coast dates. What's a girl to do? The lovely folks at Southwest airlines let me change my flight at no extra charge and now I get to go to the shows in Wantagh and Durham. The shows are listed on the tour section at 3eb.com. Hope to see yall there! PS: My New Year's resolution: bring back sj.com.
Are you on MySpace? I'm really
getting into it, kinda late in the game...looking for some 3eb friends. Blondijen.
Happy New Year! A couple of
updates... Stephan emailed a couple weeks ago to say that the band
is going to rerecord the new album they are currently working on and
record it as a band like they did with the first record. That means
they will go in as a group instead of individually going in and recording
their own parts. Sounds good to me! I love the holistic
approach if it means another gem like the self titled!

After 7.5 years on the same server technology, SJ.com
is finally getting upgraded to something a little more fresh! In
server years, which is like dog years, this means we've been operating the
same way for 50 friggin years!
The site might be up and down slightly over the next
72 hours as everything gets moved over, so bear with me people.
We'll be back and hopefully I will get a lot less spam with this update!
In 3eb news, I corresponded with Stephan a couple
weeks ago while he was in Spain on vacation. When he gets back and
settled, he plans to share his vacation pictures with all of us faithfuls
and possibly do a telephone interview. He says for everyone to
please be patient with him as he conjures up some hot lyrics for the next
record. Says Stephan, "I can't fake it." And we sure wouldn't
want that now, would we?
"i know we have taken a long time, but i
can't fake it and i want to make an album where the centerlight pops and
everyone says ah."

Happy Birthday To Us! SJ.com turns 6 years old

guestbook back up for folks
reminisce about the old days...
Pics from Oakland show:
Make sure to record the Tonight Show with Jay leno on
NBC tomorrow (Tuesday). Stephan and Arion will be playing as
Vanessa's back up band during her performance of "White Houses" at the end
of the show.
I went to the show in Oakland over the weekend.
I got a few pictures, which i will post later this week. The show
was great! The crowd was weird! I saw sooo many girls with
armpit hair, it was very not Vegas. heh As SJ said at the
beginning of the show, "Welcome to the United States of Northern
California." Quite literally, it was a tree hugger event. It
was all good though, 3eb hometown show you can't beat it! I was
pleasantly surprised to see the show turn out so well knowing that they
hadn't played in forever.
I got a chance to talk to SJ after the show and he
said that the band is diligently working on the next album. It's
going to "be like the first 2 Police albums and the traditional 3eb kind
of tunes will be on the second disk if at all." Kids, go get the
Police records - I must do the same to get an idea what to expect.
I'm also happy to report that SJ is alive and kicking
after a rumble with a toothless crack head before the show.
Apparently, SJ witnessed a guy being attacked by a crack addict that was
high and so he jumped in to save the day. He said his kick boxing
classes finally paid off and basically gave the guy a beat down until cops
arrived. No, it wasn't a celebrity guest appearance on Bum Fights.
Stephan gave me and my new hubby a ride back to our
hotel after the show and I got to hear a rough demo of a song - just SJ
and a git-tar. I don't have a title, but the chorus sang about not
running with cowards. It sounded like an anthem for being your own
person and not a clone of anyone else. I liked it. Not sure if
it will be a 3eb song, a sold SJ song or what - SJ wasn't sure either.
As you can well imagine, I was pretty well in la-la
land after that, in complete disbelief of the night, so I didn't really
think to get more scoop for you all. I will let you know more as I
Take care! Happy Turkey Day next week!
I bought halo 2, shrek 2 and vanessa 2 today. It was
a day of sequels. I'm off to SF this weekend to see 3eb play the
Oakland benefit. I hope that it is a decently long set. I'll
report back next week...with pics!
Since I had to close my guestbn ook cos of porn/cialis/viagra/phenphen
spam, I thought it'd be cool to share some of the cooler emails I get that
I am asked to pass on to Mr. Jenkins. Here ya go:
Just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your loyalty to 3eb. I
have been a die hard fan of 3eb and yours (site) since 1998. I have a son
who is 3 years old now and you wouldn't believe how much he loves 3eb.
(His favorite song is ten days late.) Good thing he doesn't understand the
lyrics! My wife and I are expecting a little girl in about 2 weeks, so we
are very excited about that. If you talk to Stephan, just let him know
that his legacy will live on forever through me and my children, because
we are third eye blind fans for life.
Thanks for listening, Aaron Hallmark.
Vanessa Carlton's new record comes out 11/09.
You should buy it because SJ co-wrote it, produced it and it's gonna rock
check it out.
On a personal note, thanks to everyone for all the
wedding well wishes! I really do appreciate it. And yes, I
will share a few wedding pics since so many
have asked...he's cute, huh? ;)
I don't know about yall, but I am so darn excited
about this hometown show that's coming up. I just booked a flight
and hotel to go see this show (with hubby of course) and I hope to see
lots of my old 3eb friends there! If you are going please drop me a
line. :) Here are details:

Hi everyone! I'm back from my honeymoon
and thought you'd appreciate some updates:
1. Head over to
www.3eb.co.uk for some exciting 3eb news and
2. Check out this awesome painted beer
bottle that Stephan painted...you can
bid for it on eBay and all proceeds go to charity. Hurry, bidding
ends on Oct. 17 (coincidentally, that's my bday!)
3. Stephan will be performing solo in LA
on 10/23 for a benefit concert. Read about the show and how to get tix
4. For those of you interested…… A
segment on Work to Ride (Stephan's pet project) will air on the Early Show, CBS
on Thursday October 14th at approximately 8:30 am EST.
As I begin my new role in life as a wife, I
need YOUR help keeping up to speed with 3eb things. Please email me any
pertinent updates that are missing from sj.com and I will get it posted ASAP.
SJ.com is turning 6 years old next month and I promise to keep things rockin'
here as long as it stays fun. Thanks for your help!
Happy Labor Day. No 3eb update because
there's nothing to update. However, you can check out Vanessa Carlton's
new song White Houses because 1. it rules and 2. stephan co-wrote it and
produced it and did something else and something else too. i really love
it and you might, too. the lyrics definitely have a hint of sj to them.
the video is hot too. girl can dance, who woulda thunk it?
stephan's bday is just around the corner.
we're not doing a major fundraiser this year because i am getting married on
9/25 and honestly i just don't have enough time to coordinate it. if you
can't understand that then i'm very sorry. i don't have any help with
this site, it's just me. however, i am 900% positive that stephan would
appreciate a donation made in his honor to the Work to Ride Foundation -
see the info at the top of the site.
last i checked there weren't any other fan
sites updating either so i don't really know what to tell you guys except hang
in there and hopefully 3eb will find a new home and we can get some more music
out of them one day.

sneezing and looking at the sunset, that takes you to a place that's above
the mundane. Everything else is just bullshit." - Stephan Jenkins
Meet "Beuda", Stephan's newly adopted
horse! Beuda is one of many stars at Work To Ride, a
non-profit polo program for at-risk youth in Philadelphia.
Stephan first learned of WTR on an
HBO special and has since adopted Beuda. Stephan is asking
everyone to check out Work To
Ride's website and make a donation in his and Beuda's honor to
keep the program growing.
