MAY 31, 2004

you guys are so lucky that i search the web everyday and therefore make it SO easy for you guys to find out what’s up in the hardcore world…the most important info for you right now is that Unearth has uploaded the FIRST song off of their new album already!!! it sounds CRAZY!!! here’s the link so you can check it out yourself I WANT UNEARTH NOW PLEASE!!!  as far as i know that’s the only insane news out there…i can’t wait until this Unearth record comes out…a DVD of there’s will be out in july too…can’t believe its the end of May already! for those who don’t know, i’m a teacher’s assistant at a school here. this was my first year working at a kindergarten back at my old school and it has changed my life…i’ve realized that this is what i want to do if i ever have a “career”. anyway – today starts the last 2 weeks that i’m going to be with these kids until they move on to the next grade. i’ve been with these kids for the entire past year and i feel like they’re MY kids now. i know so much about them, what they like, what they dislike, what they liked to be called, what they don’t like to be called, what they like to eat, what they hate, what movies they love, what they don’t…i feel like they’ve become a part of me and in two weeks, they will move on and will probably forget me when they get back. its pretty sad – of course its my first year in this brand new field of teaching – so as i do this for more years, i’m sure it will get easier. but i’ve talked to some teachers who’ve been teaching for over half of their lives and they still say, “some years are harder then others to say goodbye”…so there’s no hope for me, i’m too emotional for my own health…i just hope that i had an impact on their lives. that when they go on to become adults that they’ll remember someone in their childhood that care about them more than then they could imagine. if they do come back to find me when they’re adults, i have SO MANY stories to tell them about what it was like to teach them when they were 5-6 years old! :-) anyway…going to bed…thousands of people took to the streets yesterday! remember that the annual June 4th candle light vigil for the 1989 massacre is this friday…can’t wait to go – always an emotional night…

checked out the Avenue of Stars in TST last night (you know the one behind the New World Center) – pretty lame…but i always love walking in that area because you get to see just how beautiful our harbor is. our city at night looks majestic like we really are the center of the world…but then morning comes and all the beauty dissipates through the air and turns into stress and anxiety that lands on people’s faces. they trudge through the rest of the day being shit upon by their bosses or people who think are their bosses until the work day ends. then its a mission to get on the impolite mass transit amongst the throngs of other stressed out people and try not to puke by the pungent stench of sweat and BO on the crowded MTR’s, buses etc…then you finally get off the said transportation, pat yourself on the back on remarkably stopping yourself from puking and make your way home. then night comes back once again and if you’re lucky, you find yourself sitting next to the person you love and look across the harbor and sit back and take in the beauty of the city, which hours ago looked like a sick and twisted horror movie. so is the life of living in a bustling city of Hong Kong…ANYWAY: found this message on the internet last night about a friends band called 22 Cats – it looks like they’re releasing an album on a label that is funnily enough called Harbor Records. here’s the message about a show going on tonight for them i guess…i’ll probably try to go to check them out and pick up their new CD which will be on sale tonight:
維港唱片 明天出貓!

ANYWAY: updated info about the June 25th show…all the bands are finalized, unfortunately 5 Disciplines won’t be playing (SUCKS!!! i wanted to see them…) but others are. i also posted 2 new advertisements about people looking for band members – one of them is 5 Disciplines – they’re looking for another guitar player to complete their sound. for all those of you who have a passion for hardcore please give these guys a call. they’re one of the most dedicated bands in HK to hardcore with the entire band made of people who have committed themselves to hardcore at the same time respecting other music as well. they’re great people with awesome ideas for a unique hardcore sound…i know they’re too nice to say this – but from too much experience in this field, if you don’t give a shit about hardcore or are just into it for the music, then don’t bother calling them. ANYWAY – check out the advertisement on this PAGE…

yo – holy crap…check out this band called Misery Signals on ferret records!!! i heard one song and i placed an order for it RIGHT AWAY!!! its that good that i couldn’t wait – i had to order it right away…click this link to check out one of their songs GIVE ME MISERY SINGALS BABY!!!  a good friend called Nic watched the throwdown video and then commented that this video must be inspired by the movie The Fight Club – so i feel like an idiot for making that comment yesterday. in the case of Throwdown, where even their name was based on a joke to try to be the toughest band possible (ayou can watch the old Indecision Records documentary for the full story of how Throwdown started), basing their video on The Fight Club makes sense…so – oops! made a mistake – i still think the video sucks though personally. i think they would’ve been better off just using live video stuff – come on, their live show looks SO SO crazy!!! that would’ve been enough…go listen to Misery Signals dude…you won’t be sorry…there is so much good music in this world now – ALL you hardcore bands in HK who still haven’t started playing shows should have NO excuse writing new songs man!!! :-) there is inspiration EVERYWHERE!!! just look around and download all these millions of bands that are on the net…
