TMBG's Myspace staff would like to invite all you Myspace limericists to post a New Years limerick on our freshly revised page. All limericks need to follow the tradition form ("The once was a... from....") and should be posted as a comment on the They Might Be Giants page so everyone can see it! The topic? What will happen in 2008! What are you looking forward to? What to you dread?


From TMBG-
"TMBG wish all our Myspace friends a very happy new year in the soon to be glorious 2008!
TMBGs resolutions? More shows, more albums, more podcasts and more free stuff for YOU!

2007 has been an action packed year for the band. We sincerely want to thank everybody who came out to all the shows, signed up for the podcasts, and every one who picked up a copy of The Else. We book-ended the year breaking many long standing records for the band: early on we got did our earliest show ever (8:30 am), and coldest outdoor show (26 degrees), and ended the year driving the slowest miles per hour to a gig (a stark, snowy oscillation between soul-crushing boredom and looming catastrophe). But even under extreme conditions a good time was had by all.

We are looking forward to Aught Eight with great anticipation. The big big show at the Beacon in NYC will be a fun way to start the year. Looks like it's well on its way to selling out in advance, which always puts a spring in our step. The horns will be joining us, and we will probably be doing an extended set of material new and old, with some surprises we can't talk about too much. Hope to see you there!

They Might Be Giants have a BRAND NEW kids DVD & CD set coming out on Feb. 5. It's called "Here Come the 123s" and is available right now for pre-order to arrive at your doorstep-probably on the day of release-by those reliable and well-read people and robots at Amazon. This is the link that will rock your Amazon pre-order

To give everyone an interesting preview of the "Here Come the 123s" project, we also have just launched our kids video podcast, which has been in and out of the Number 1 position for kids video podcast chart for the last few weeks. We want to encourage everyone to check it out. It is not only FREE, it will be a WEEKLY posting starting this Friday, and will be getting a bit more elaborate as we get into February.

Here's the hot link to the free kids video podcast
