May 1999 | April 1999 | March 1999

APR 24: ACES AWARD

----

Aces, Association for Children for Enforcement of Support, is the largest child support organization in the nation with over 400 chapters in 48 states and 40,000 members across the United States. ACES members are families entitled to support who have joined together to take action to improve the child support system for the 35 million children owed over $41 Billion in unpaid child support.

On April 17, ACES celebrated its 15th Anniversary at an event held in Los Angeles. Attendees included public officials, representatives from community organizations, and others who are working to support ACES. Everclear was presented with the "ACES Golden Heart Award" in recognition of their work. Art Alexakis attended the ceremony to accept the award for Everclear.

An ACES spokesperson said, "Everclear's song, 'Father of Mine,' was outstanding in communicating the searing pain that a child goes through when there has been a family breakup. ACES applauds their courage and sensitivity in speaking out about this tough subject."

More information about this organization can be found at http://www.childsupport-aces.org/.

APR 11: ART'S SURGERY

Just to clarify the surgery situation:

Art is no longer having the neck surgery. Apparently, the vertebra giving him problems slid back into place, removing the need for surgery.

However, he is still planning on having surgery to remove nodules on this throat. No specific date has yet been announced for that surgery.


APR 10: SCI-FI CHANNEL COMMERCIALS

From Entertainment Weekly, April 9, 1999, News and Notes:

----

While it's not exactly a mutation of Jekyll-and-Hyde proportions, mad scientists at the SCI FI Channel have cooked up a series of promo spots intended to transform the network's geeky, retro image into something hipper.

Spokespeople on deck include rockers Everclear, wrestling goddess Sable, and Virgin bigwig Richard Branson.

The May 1999 issue of SPIN, which has Futurama on the cover, contains a quickie half-page interview with Art.

It's nothing deep - it's got a nice picture of him at the top, though. He gives tips to longevity in the music industry. He also talks briefly about his plans for Popularity.
