11.28.2003 High Quality Irish Daily Star Scan  
[11:33 PM est] Yesterday I hinted at a better-quality scan of the new Dolores photo in yesterday's "Irish Daily Star" and here it is! Thanks again to Des for sending it in to us! In addition to the story we posted yesterday, the brief story also says, "Dolores has spent the last 6 months in Canada with her husband as his mother has been unwell." -- but you knew that anyway, didn't you?
11.27.2003 Rock Stage: Dolores is a "Firey Lady"  
[10:12 PM est] Unlike some of the other "ladies" on this list (term used loosely) by the Mexican magazine Rock Stage, Dolores is listed for talent rather than for a sexy body. Wow, what a concept!
11.27.2003 Irish Star: Dolores at Leonard Sexton Art Expo Launch  
[07:53 PM est] Dolores is in Dublin this week for the premiere exposition of another Irish artistic talent, Leonard Sexton. Lucky for us, The Irish Daily Star was there to grab a new photo of Dolores, and even better, we've got a low resolution shot of it for you inside. This is the first new photo that we've seen of Dolores in several months, and is it just us, or does she look different?
11.25.2003 Zombieguide Moves Servers (Again)  
[04:03 AM est] Congratulations! If you can read this, that means that your computer found Zombieguide's new server, since we are moving the site once again. Odds are, things are a little messy right now, so please excuse our mess and be patient. I'll continue to update the site throughout the week to try to fix all the transfer glitches. Also, sadly, the Zombieguide Forums must be restarted from scratch once again -- click the headline to go to the new forums for more info on that topic. But, the good news is, if everything is working correctly, you should be able to enter the forums at a new easy-to-remember address:

11.20.2003 MTV Rockumentary 1996 Video for Download  
[07:14 AM est] The Zombieguide Video Section has been updated yet again; the newest update is an MPEG encoding of MTV's excellent Rockumentary on The Cranberries, the source of the short "Uncertain" video clip, Dolores speaking Gaelic, and an unknown demo of "Dreams" at the beginning. In our opinion, it's possibly the best documentary ever done on the band, even though it only covers them up to 1996. Make sure you download it, or else you'll definitely be missing something special.
11.18.2003 Dolores Collaborating with Dan Brodbeck on Future Material

11.17.2003 Coldplay Covers "Linger" Live!!!!  
[09:58 PM est] We will take our beating now, because we really deserve to be whipped for missing this spectacular news: The magnificent Coldplay performed a cover of "Linger" during their tour of Ireland this summer. Find out why Chris Martin & Co. decided to pay tribute to The Cranberries' classic and get a quote from one of the band's representatives about the cover version, all inside!! If someone can send us an MP3 of this, we will be eternally grateful...
11.17.2003 Sunday Mirror: Noel Seen with Cranberries Ex-Manager in Limerick  
[01:28 PM est] The Sunday Mirror is at their paparazzi duties of stalking celebrities, and has spotted Noel with The Cranberries' former manager Lewis Kovac this past week. What could it mean? Well, we can't say for sure exactly, but it's a whole lot more interesting than watching Noel buy CDs. We can't tell what the "what" is, but we do know the "who,' "when," and "where."
11.16.2003 Dutch Singer Zosja Covers "Zombie" on New Album  
[04:57 AM est] "Zombie" has been covered on yet another artist's new album, but it's not the usual head-banging death metal type cover that we're used to hearing. Check the news story to download an MP3 clip of Dutch singer Zosja's new version of "Zombie" as she tries her best to mimic the classic O'Riordan yodel.
11.12.2003 New Jam & Spoon Album Title, Revised Release Date

11.09.2003 Cranberries Parody on French & Saunders DVD  
[02:20 PM est] British comedy duo French & Saunders "take the piss out of" The Cranberries in their newest DVD release, "Living in a Material World." Honestly, no matter how much you like The Cranberries, you've still got to have enough sense of humor to laugh at it, so you might want to consider picking this one up. But don't worry, The Cranberries aren't the only ones getting made fun of...
11.07.2003 "Whisper to a Scream" DVD Retitled, Re-released  
[12:15 PM est] If you didn't get a chance to buy the documentary "From a Whisper to a Scream" when it was released on VHS and DVD in 2001, you're getting another chance, courtesy of Eagle Vision USA, who picked up the rights to the documentary and has re-released it on DVD this week under a new title, "Out of Ireland." Oh, and Dolores is on the cover this time!
11.03.2003 "Stop The Rumors!" An Artistic Look at the Two-Year Break  
[10:09 PM est] If The Cranberries were politicians, than this would be a political cartoon. Our good friend Maurizio di Bona aka The Hand has taken some of the frustration that Cranberries fans are feeling and has poured it into a healthy artistic outlet. Come inside to see The Hand's lighthearted look at The Cranberries' personal obligations outside of the group and get a good laugh (as true as the cartoon may be...).

10.30.2003 The Cranberries On Unofficial Beatles Tribute Collection

10.25.2003 Exclusive: Zombieguide's Interview with Mike Plotnikoff  
[12:36 AM est] "Black Widow," Dolores' upcoming solo album, a Spiderman soundtrack contribution, "God Be Wtih You" and Bjrk comparisons (!), "To the Faithful Departed," "The Passion of Christ," "Wake Up and Smell the Coffee," and reasons for the band's current break are all discussed in this exclusive interview with Cranberries Engineer Mike Plotnikoff.

Now that the Cranberries are taking a two-year hiatus, there's no better time for Cranberries fans to expand their boundaries.

10.16.2003 Simply Beautiful.  
[10:19 PM est] This photo of Dolores is so incredible that it ought to be, like, the national anthem, or something. OK, it's a little bit old, but we fancy it so much that we think it deserves its own main page update. And so it got one. Check out the Magazines Gallery for a massive (2.1 mb) scan of one fantastic photograph printed in the October 7th, 2001 issue of the UK's Sunday Telegraph Magazine. We have the full interview scanned as well, definitely a great read! (It's at the bottom of the page, at the end of the "Wake Up and Smell the Coffee" section.)

10.13.2003 Quick Update: "The Passion of Christ"  
[04:57 PM est] According to Reuters, Mel Gibson's film "The Passion" has been officially renamed to "The Passion of Christ." Trailers that you can currently find on the internet have been reportedly bootlegged, and were only meant for internal use at Icon Productions. The download popularity of the trailers has crashed many sites, including Ain't It Cool News, the original poster. Icon states that a full commercial trailer for the public will be available before Christmas (including music, maybe?? Let's hope!).
10.12.2003 Support Mel Gibson's "The Passion" Petitions Online  
[05:21 PM est] With major movie houses shunning the film, and outcry from special-interest groups, there is a small but very real chance that we may never see Mel Gibson's "The Passion." Will Dolores O'Riordan's song fall into the same fate as Titanic, The X-Files and Sweet November? As Cranberries fans, we should try our best to acertain that another Cranberries soundtrack contribution does not get cancelled yet again!
