looks like the offspring will be doing a Q & A on twitter this week:)

Got questions for the band? An Official Offspring "Twitterview" will be happening this week, so start thinking. Details to come...

I have a twitter account just so I can follow The Offspring (and Fat Mike, Pennywise, The Vandals, and a few others). I have never tweeted.

You can do so buy subscribing to their respective RSS feeds instead, KickHimWhenHe'sDown. That is what I do. Although Twitter do not show the RSS icon now (as it used to) you can follow use this link:
https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name=offspring
I do not think that I will have to tell you to substitute "offspring" for any other account.

Thanks. That's a much better idea. Twitter is practically useless to me.

Also on Tuesday, June 26 at 1:00 PM Pacific fans can participate in a "twitterview" with the band via special splash page on Offspring.com. Have your questions ready!

Okay. I never used Twitter but now I registered because of this interview. Lame? Maybe. Will it be long-term fun to me? I don't know!

Dexter and Noodles are there and jokingly communicate with each other through the same account. I already asked my question, but I didn't see it pop up anywhere. Totally new to Twitter as I said :o

all these days all these questions I open up the tab and draw a blank... all I could think to do was ask about concerts...

in about two hours I'll probably have like 80 more questions I want to ask again haha

Ask what new songs came from demos of previous albums. Don't have Twitter myself, but I saw Randy asking that question a lot of times and I wonder too..

done. lets see if they respond. I kind of want to get a trend of questions not related to hey come to this city hey come to that city (though i admit i asked a similar tour question already haha. not a fan of festival dates, set lists aren't long enough haha)

The only constructive thing I could come up with was a question whether Tonight I Do really is called Tonight I Do or if it is a fan-made title... I suck...

Funny, I saw your question pop up on the main page of the Q&A, but I think a whole lot more are not being shown.

I wanted to know if the boy and old man had any relations to anyone in the band. And when is the vinyl release??
