OCTOBER 31, 2004

woah – what a packed day we had yesterday…starting at 9 in the morning we all woke up to get to our bandroom to pack our stuff. then around 11:30-ish we got in the van to go to HKIS (hong kong international school) to shoot our very first music video for the song Refuse! it was awesome the way that Indy and all his friends shot the video! they booked a huge empty room and put all the band equipment right in the middle…they had i think 12 camera’s filming us!!! INSANE!!! we all can’t wait to see it when its done…don’t know when yet though. on the way to HKIS (this is the school i went to) i thought it was so cool that i was going to back to my roots with my band members – to show them what type of crazy world i grew up in!!! :-) they were blown away by the size of the school…they all thought it was more like a university then a school…anyway – thanks again to Indy and ALL the people that were there to help shoot the video!!! :-) that was amazing that they would spend an entire saturday doing something like this for us…we filmed from 12 to 3:30…then we were hungry and had some time so we went to Stanley…both kevin and i felt like we were on tour – it was so weird to hang out in stanley just trying to kill time (that’s what touring is always like – shows are at night so you try to do something during the day to pass the time)…we went rock climbing on the beach! hahahaha…then we went back to the school to pack up our stuff and then go to the Warehouse for soundcheck…we got there like at about 5:30 and then started soundchecking…we met the Masterpeace and Rough Rock Possest who were ALL really nice guys…then both King Ly Chee and Guan 36 soundchecked and then we hung out outside selling shirts, CD’s and DVD’s…i can’t believe how many people are STILL buying our t-shirts and CD’s!!! :-) THANK YOU!!! i met 3 guy’s that came down to HK from Shenzhen to watch the show!!! that was so awesome…regarding the show, lots of people to thank!!! first of all, we want to thank our good friend Karen for inviting us – if you don’t know yet, she’s the only person in HK that sells trustkill stuff so go check out her website to find out more…we also want to thank the other bands that played last night – the 2 japanese bands, 5 Disciplines, Milkshake 7 and Guan 36…then we want to thank the sound guy’s that were working so hard trying to help the sound last night. like all of you heard last night, the sound was VERY hard to control. i asked Ken from the warehouse later and he said it was because they had some shows last week and ALL the settings were fucked up. so the poor sound guy’s yesterday – Jan, Ho Ma and Fei Keung had so much trouble all day during soundcheck and then all night when the bands were playing. by the time it was our time i think Fei Keung just had enough and he left. so that left Jan and Ho Ma to finish off the show and we really want to thank both these guys for doing that!!! that was hard for them since they are unfamiliar with all the Warehouse’s equipment…they were brave to do that!!! thanks guys!!! and LASTLY – we need to thank all of YOU GUYS again for making it such a special night for us…we had such a busy and tiring day, it was the perfect way to finish it!!! :-) now my back is killing me! woohoo! hahaha…okay okay…thank you again so much for supporting us over and over!!! last night we practiced the whole “mosh pit” thing so hopefully people will understand what to do in the future…its much safer if there’s room for people to dance around in…okay okay – going to bed…SEE YA!!!

damn man – i feel like i haven’t had a good nights sleep in days…everyday this week i’ve had so much to after work its crazy…i haven’t been able to relax at all…i thought last night i could jam fast and then get home and get some sleep – but i got to our bandroom and my amp is screwed up…actually the amp isn’t screwed up, the very tip of one of my jacks is stuck inside the amp and i can’t get it out! so only one channel works which changes my guitar sound A LOT!!! so annoying…then while i was figuring that crap out with andy and kevin, i hurt my lower back because the amp is SOOOOO heavy…then i gave up and continued to practice with one channel and i broke a string…so after work today – i thought i was going to be able to go home and take a nap before i go out, but now after i get off work i have to go get my amp fixed and then come home for maybe a second to mail out some more packages…then go do an interview with Milk magazine and then FINALLY i’ll get to hang out with my favorite person in the world – my girlfriend – for like an hour and then go home and finally sleep from this long long tiring week…but i can’t sleep that late on saturday because we’re shooting our first video early in the morning…after the video we have to run over to the Warehouse to do soundchecks…then play a show…then move all the shit back to our bandroom…and THEN i can finally go home…i’m going to try so hard to sleep ALL DAY on sunday!!! i need it…yeah yeah yeah – i’m boring you with this post aren’t i? i don’t give a shit…if you don’t like what i write here then don’t read it, a pretty simple solution don’t you think? byebye…

yo…went to the show last night and it kicked so much ass…even though i couldn’t hear any guitars or bass – so if the drummers made any mistakes, it was way TOO obvious! :-) anyway – Hard Candy were frickin’ GREAT last night!!! holy crap…so good…they played so many songs and what must’ve been a long time but it didn’t feel like it at all! they have this song called “My Will” that RULES!!! i love this song – has a totally old-school hardcore feel PLUS it has an awesome breakdown in the middle of the song! :-) perfect for all the hardcore dancing that we’re going to start doing at our shows! hahahaha…woohoo…our next show is coming up! can’t wait…

yo…so much in the news lately…china’s government has said that everyone from the democratic party is invited to visit beijing except for, yup – you guessed it, Cheung Mo…but more important news is that the world famous garbage education system of HK is going to be reformed DRAMATICALLY!!! guess what their focus and motive is to change the system? to make our HK students a lot more critical in their thinking! FINALLY! the new curriculum will have a course in liberal arts…i hope you understand what this means…this means that in 10 or 20 years from now on, HK people will be COMPLETELY different from the HK people that you know now…the way they look at the world will be different, and more importantly, the way they QUESTION the world will be completely altered! i can’t wait…i can’t wait to see what’s going to happen to the future HK…all i have to say is, that if China is worried about ONE cheung mo, what are they going to do with an entire CITY full of Cheung Mo’s?! hahahaha…of course – that probably won’t happen, just wishful thinking on my part…okay…i stink of smoke right now because i went to that bar Organ in TST to watch Nothing None, Very Ape and Hardpack play last night…i fucking stink with smoke cause there’s no air ventilation inside!!! sucks…i’m off…peace…
