Pearl Jam Message Board Hints at Upcoming News

When Sea tweets, we listen.

To Pearl Jam fans, “Tweeting” has dual meaning. Like Twitter, there’s still a little birdie involved, but Tweets by “Sea” often contain riddles hinting at future events, often tours.

Here’s today’s:

The little birdie stopped by and proclaimed in a deep bellowing voice,“I am the great and powerful Birdie!”
“WTH?” we said.
“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain,” declared the Birdie.
“One man stands alone?” we said.
“Tweet,” said Birdie before he flew away.

So, be sure your memberships and addresses are up to date by the end of this weekend or you’ll be singing the Scarecrow’s song.

With some deciphering, many of the quotes here are from The Wizard of Oz, with “OZ” also being an alias for Australia. Is Brad (Stone) or Soundgarden (Matt) going to Australia? Is Eddie venturing on a solo tour of Australia? Is Mike McCready grabbing some Ruby slippers and playing in Kansas?

What do you think?
