videos, Sunday Morning house…

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

No Doubt has posted their full Kennedy Center Honors performance on their web site, which includes “All My Loving”! :

A video clip of part of Gwen’s interview from the new Fishbone Documentary, Everyday Sunshine, has been posted on vimeo:

Gwen doesn’t show up until about 2 minutes into the video.

Sunday Morning houseThe Sunday Morning house is now for sale!  From the OC Register:

“Another home in singer Gwen Stefani’s family — and also the setting for a music video by her group No Doubt — has hit the market.

This house, which appears in the “Sunday Morning” video, is owned by Gwen’s mother and the mother of Patrick Sharples, who is the real estate agent and Gwen’s cousin.

The asking price is $474,900.

The home, at 322 S. Ohio St. in the Anaheim Colony Historical District, was built in 1936. Because of the home’s historical designation, the new owner may qualify for a Mills Act tax reduction. The home needs “cosmetic repairs,” according to the listing.

The Colony is a roughly two-square mile area bordered by North, South, East and West streets in Anaheim.

This listing comes a couple of weeks after another home in her family — one owned by her grandparents on her father’s side — went into escrow. That house, at 1173 W. Beacon Ave., is where songs in No Doubt’s “Beacon Street Collection” were recorded. The band’s “Trapped in a Box” video and part of the “Just a Girl” video also were shot there.

Details on 322 S. Ohio St.:

  • Square feet: 1,943
  • Price per square foot: $244
  • Lot Size:  5,471 square feet
  • Formal dining room
  • Kitchen has an eating area
  • Attic
  • Covered porch

The home’s historic name is the Armbrust-Pember House.

The house once belonged to their late grandparents on Gwen’s mother’s side, Sharples says. Gwen’s grandfather was still alive when “Sunday Morning” was shot and he appears in the video.

Sharples says he will hold an open house on Saturday and Sunday 11:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.”

If only I could buy it!  :(

Congrats to Tony and Erin!!!!!

Gwen and L’Oréal

Saturday, January 15th, 2011

So, Gwen is the newest L’Oréal girl!

From E Online:

“It’s a match made in makeup heaven.

Gwen Stefani, who rarely goes out without her signature red lips and black eyeliner, has been named the latest face of L’Oréal Paris.

“I can’t believe I get to be one of the L’Oréal Paris girls,” the No Doubt frontwoman said in a statement. “I love playing dress-up, onstage or shooting videos—it’s always been one of my favorite parts of being in a band.”

Gwen joins an A-list group of ladies, including Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé, who rep for the cosmetics brand.

Her TV ads will debut during Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards.”

L’Oréal has posted a few behind the scenes/teaser videos on YouTube:

The band uploaded a 4 second audio teaser!!!! :

The “Beacon Street” house is up for sale!!  Seems sort of sad.  I wish I could buy it!!

Happy birthday to Tom Dumont!!!! :)

Tom updates blog and official

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011


Tom posted on the official site yesterday:

“Hello there,

I can see how our tweets might have been less than clear about our songwriting and recording process. We worked (in a little studio) most of last year writing songs. We ‘demo’ them as we write, which is like making rough draft recordings.

At one point we did go into a ‘real’ studio last year (in May I think) to really record some of them for the final album versions.

But we didn’t finish those songs completely in that session. After that we resumed in the writing studio and wrote more tunes during the rest of last year.

Now, starting today, we’re back in a real studio really recording again. Excitedly!

There are two new ND babies coming soon, mine and Tony’s, so there will be a little delay for that. :-)

This process does take us awhile, it always has. Plus life is a little more complicated and busy than it was before we all had kids etc.

So the goal is to write a couple songs more this year and of course finish recording all of them.

We’re really really happy with the new songs and feel this great sense of momentum going into the new year.


They also posted some studio photos, so make sure to check them out!

Tom also updated his own blog yesterday with some studio gear photos:

“No Doubt are in the studio for two weeks tracking a couple of new songs for our forthcoming album. A friend of ours named Spike is in the Producer’s chair. I thought it’d be interesting to show you what it looks like, including some of the gear. We’re in this place for 10+ hours a day at the moment, so there’s plenty of downtime to take pictures. Enjoy!”
