what up yo…we didn’t get home from mixing the first song until around 6am last night!!! sorry for the late posting…a recent University of Hong Kong survey says 2/3’s of Hong Kong people are OPPOSED to article 23. the government still isn’t going to listen – i wonder if they sit in their offices at night and wonder, “why do HK people not support us?”. because you don’t listen! a government that doesn’t listen to its people is NOT a government that represents the people. you DON’T represent us – you represent yourselves. why would HK stand behind you? chi sin ah really…ANYWAY: last night before we started mixing the first song (Stand Strong – Kei Ngang) – we watched Jun and his band practice. they’re playing tonight for FREE at Western Market in Sheung Wan at 10pm…come down if you can – Kevin is going to play drums for him for one song! its going to be awesome…THEN: tomorrow is the Freedom music/arts festival and we hope it DOESN’T FUCKING RAIN!!! guan 36 probably has the worst luck in HK…every time we play – it rains. we’re thinking about changing our name to Guan Rain. what do you think? does that sound good? oh yippee – as i typed that last line – it started raining outside my window. andy has a joke with us – if you want to know if its going to rain on a saturday or sunday – just find out if Guan 36 is playing a show. chances are that it will rain…hahaha…remember there’s a new hardcore band called Hardihood that will be playing tomorrow!!! check out their website for MP3’s…they’re heavy!!! finally there’s ONE more hardcore band in Hong Kong!!! the 4th…LASTLY: it looks like a LOT of people are going to come to the show on monday night!!! AWESOME!!! its going to be fucking amazing…see you then!!!
i forgot to mention to you guys to come support a new band called Hardihood on Sunday…they have a website up CLICK HERE and you can check out their songs!!! they have a cool positive attitude so its great to add one more band to the hardcore community in HK!!! thank god!!! finally a NEW band! hahaha.. :-)…NEXT: Taiwan finally, graciously, took the stupid 10-day procedure off of people from HK. that means we will ALL have no problems going to the Formoz music festival next month! AWESOME!!! to all our taiwan friends – we can’t wait to see you guys again in one month!!! NEXT: our good friend Jun (Gung Sek Leong) has a show this saturday in Sheung Wan – kevin will be playing drums for one song!!! so come out and check out King Ly Chee jamming with Jun!!!
IT IS SO FUCKING HOT IN HONG KONG!!! not just hot – it is SO stuffy…you can’t even really breathe walking around. goddamm – it is SO easy to get annoyed dealing with this weather and every time i read something else the Secretary of Security Regina Ip says just makes me want to find her and tell her to fuck off. what did she say recently? she said that the fact that the government isn’t trying to stop the 7/1 protest is proof that HK’s freedoms are STILL protected. WHAT A STUPID WOMAN!!! Article 23 has NOT been passed yet! so OF COURSE Hong Kong’s freedoms are still okay!! article 23 will be passed on July 9th!!! it is AFTER this date that if the government allows SUCH BIG protests to continue that she can say that HK’s freedoms are still okay. what an idiot…goddamn – someone shoot this woman. ANYWAY: wei – Guan 36, 5 Disciplines and a new band called Hardihood will be playing between 3-4pm on Sunday at the Freedom Festival in Lantau Island…come down if you have time! there are so many bands playing and a lot of them haven’t played in a long time…okay – i’m too fucking hot in my own room to write this message. sorry boys and girls – have to go take a shower or try to find a way to sleep INSIDE my air-conditioner tonight…:-)
welcome to a day in the life of our government:
Tung Chee Hwa: “Fuck – over 100,000 people are going to attend this protest against article 23! The premier of China is going to be in Hong Kong! I will lose so much “face” if he sees this! These Hong Kong people don’t want to give me “face”!
Regina Ip: “Yes I know about this. All these stupid people are going to join this protest. When will they understand, we have never listened to their opinions before – so why will we care now?
Tung Chee Hwa: “I have a good idea – we should get 10,000 movie tickets and give them away to HK people! We can lie and say that this is “to celebrate Sars free Hong Kong”! Hong Kong people are so stupid that they will not realize that we are actually trying to trick them by giving them free movie tickets so they go watch movies instead of joining the protest!”
Regina Ip: “Oh my! What a wonderful idea! All of Hong Kong’s taxi drivers and the staff in McDonalds will never realize that we’re tricking them! I have another good idea too! How about we send a secret e-mail to the Pro-Beijing political parties and tell them to rent ALL the football pitches on Victoria Park on July 1 at 3pm!”
Tung Chee Hwa: “That’s a fucking great idea baby! Then after July 9th when we pass Article 23 they will NEVER be able to gather so many people again! We can put them ALL in jail!”
And then a bomb comes out of the sky and lands right on top of both of them…then i wake up in the morning from my dream and wonder if this is real! hahaha…(of course the story above is made up but the facts are real – they really are giving away 10,000 movie tickets and Pro-Beijing political parties have rented the football pitches in Victoria Park on July 1.). ANYWAY: in the newspaper yesterday they interviewed some New Territories (Sun Kai) taxi drivers who will join the protest – i was so touched because the drivers said that they will ALL take the day off on July 1 so they can join the protest! isn’t that great!!! ALL types of people are going to be walking side by side screaming in unity about something they DO NOT want! but our stubborn gov’t. will STILL pass this law on July 9th…even though July 1st will be the BIGGEST proof that HK people do NOT want this article to be passed this soon. Mainland China took 10 years to pass their National Security Law – why is our fucking gov’t. passing this law in less than a year!!!
