    okay – back to watching Supernova on tv…new misery signals rules…this supernova stuff is pretty lame but i’m still hooked watching this stupid stuff…dilana should win…but i think lukas is going to win…and some US newspaper already said that the supernova guy’s have already selected him…whatever – stupid show, stupid band…you know what? the Rockstar producers were actually looking to find a new singer for Van Halen dude!!! NOW THAT WOULD’VE been a GOOD show!!! imagine watching Eddie Van Halen up their on stage!!! GODDAMM!!! that would RULE…

    yes ladies and gents…a brand new record label called Start From Scratch Records is coming soon…we’re still all working hard on the website design, trying to get a logo set up etc…but we’ll get there…its a cool little label set up by a bunch of HK bands that got together…a lot of people involved so its fun! :-) more information later…our lovely lovely pal Chantal is working her butt off as usual putting together the overall design of the site…all the fun flash stuff will hopefully come later down the line…

    wow – its nice to have some positive stuff up on this news page finally isn’t it? yeah…word…going to bed…sorry for the short post but i’m tired…aren’t we all? how many of you work insane hours? i don’t actually work insane hours – i just have too much going on in my life at one time…as always damn it…ANYWAY – boohoo right? life goes on…doesn’t sit around and wait for people to join it…you either get involved or watch it pass you by.

    dude…new Lamb of God CD comes with a frickin’ 90 minute DVD!!! its awesome…cool documentary about the making of their new album and lots of funny and interesting stuff in between…well worth the cash…RR still hasn’t gotten the new Misery Signals :-( dying to get it…

    watching a cool TV show about Indians living in the UK…london more specifically…the show is called “Life Isn’t All Ha Ha Hee Hee”…awesome show about life in London for Indians who have always lived there…ever time i watch something like this about life in London i always feel pretty comfortable…comfortable about the fact that London is so damn international that Indians/Pakistanis/Bangladeshis are all part of the fabric of the typical “London” society…its so strange to be watching a show about a city that really has embraced the cultures of all its minorities. i don’t know what that’s like since i live in hong kong where the government is okay with every community sticking to their own and no one knows or understands each other’s culture…and then you just keep living your life…never getting to experience each other’s life or each other’s culture or world…then you’re old and grey and you wonder “i wonder why those people do that? why do they smell like that?”…you will never know and you will continue to believe the stupid stereotypes that everyone believes…

    dude…so much to do in our new bandroom…i spent the day yesterday with Chai in their old bandroom in Kwai Chung helping him pack all his stuff from there. its amazing that that one dude can have THAT MUCH STUFF!!! hahaha…we were there for like 4 hours packing up his stuff…he’s already made on trip moving stuff from that room to our new room, yesterday was trip #2…and he’s still NOT done – he will need at least 1 more trip before his old room is done…

    after that – we brought all that stuff back to our new room…jammed for an hour or so then around 2am started painting one of the walls…5am now and i’m home…

    its been a strange week, and an even stranger weekend…week started horribly with the master’s degree mess up…then the week just kept getting worse…Set Your Goal is the only thing that kept me going…friday night i don’t even know what happened…i can’t remember what i did friday night. i just know i was tired as hell on friday from the emotional roller coaster of the week. i didn’t even get to see The Lovesong play even though they played across the street from where i live. that sucked for me…they would’ve been the perfect soundtrack to this week.

    wow – i think i’ve whined for the past few days…the whining will continue unfortunately.

    heard some stuff last night that especially got me depressed…doesn’t help that i have a frickin’ pounding headache! i got it tuesday and it still here now…i had to sleep with panadol and that was the only way i could get to sleep. new room is coming along…its going to take a long time – but we’ll get it done soon.

    a girl in austria was found after having disappeared for 8 years…she was stored in a car garage by some sick and twisted man for 8 years!!! can you believe that!! how sad can that be…how much courage must you have to be able to endure through 8 years of this type of torture…she’s a hero for being able to live through this horrible thing and no doubt she’s going to have scars for many many years to come…

    still no update from my stupid university about this terrible mix up that i’m in. i’ve had a painful headache for the past few days because of all this shit and the lack of sleep i’m getting. we had band practice in our new bandroom last night and that was the only time i feel like i’ve had fun these past few days. the kids at school have been great…yesterday i had to test a kid to see if he count by 2′s (you know – 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, etc). so i asked him “tom – can you count by 2′s for me?” he said, “of course i can Mr. Farooqi, 1      2.” HAHAHAHAHA!!! :-) he thought i meant counting to 2…

    you know what has helped these past few days? listening to Set Your Goal’s new album “mutiny”…its an awesome mix of hardcore and pop/punk and has been the perfect soundtrack these past few horrible days. i told Dee in ATP to check it out and he was like “damn! they sound good!” so hit their site up if you haven’t heard this band:  also, new Killswitch Engage album is coming out soon – stupid name for the record…who knows what the songs are going to be like…probably a bit more of the same but hopefully it’ll be kind of cool. the new Unearth album already sounds exactly the same from song to song, so i’m trying not to have too high of hopes for the new Killswitch…

    like i said…life sucks.

    dude…life is so lame sometimes. that’s all i have to say. sometimes it takes all my energy and strength to be positive about things – but sometimes it just easier to face reality and the horrible facts that things are just not going to go your way now or ever really. times where you think finally found something that you really want to do and it seems like all the cards are laid out so that you do achieve this goal. then life deals you a reality check card and you sit there going, “i should’ve known better”. i should’ve known better to think that something i started would actually be easy and actualy work out right. just like EVERYTHING i ever feel passionate about, i have to struggle and my passion needs to be tested over and over again until i break. this band is one HUGE example, skateboarding is another, playing the guitar is another…all of these things are things that i love with all my heart but all of these things have had OTHER people who wanted me to stop doing these things. so far – no one has succeeded in killing my spirit. i’ve come close to being killed…but they haven’t killed it yet.

    my new horrible situation is that for the past year and a half i have been struggling through a master’s degree that would certify me to teach kids in international school. i have 5 classes left to do and i am FINISHED with my master’s degree. but guess what? i got a phone call yesterday that said that the degree that i have been enrolled in doesn’t actually CERTIFY me to teach!!! WHAT THE HELL!??!?!?! they told me that i have been enrolled into the wrong program and that they’re very sorry. so now i have a choice to finish the program i’m in now, and then RESTART the CORRECT master’s program, or quit now and start the correct program immediately. either way – i will need 35 credits and basically RESTART my two years of studying ALL OVER AGAIN!!! this sucks…

    this world sucks. tomorrow’s always supposed to be a better day. that’s what they say. i’ve been refuting this stupid saying since i was a kid, and every few years my experiences just add more evidence to the pile that there is no such thing as a “better tomorrow”.

    man…moving stuff last night was crazy!!! it was just pong, me and mushie kicking ass movie stuff from our old room to our new room (which is really just down the road! hahahaha…)…we rented one of those HUGE trucks because we were too lazy to take Man’s drums apart and we have all our crap anyway. so pong sat in the front with the driver and Mushie and i were in the back holding the cabinets from falling over. it was SO funny! i felt like we were in like in an Indiana Jones movie or something! every turn the driver made – all the cabinets would roll over and almost flatten either me or Mushie! hahahaha…i’m so surprised we made it alive from that experience man! so Mushie was our first friend to see our new room :-) but NOTHING is set up…the walls are totally bare, the air-conditioners just went up, carpeting just went on in our practice part…the next few days is going to be painting, and moving more stuff into the room…its going to be crazy this week doing all this stuff…TOO much to do!!!

    the cool thing is – guess who our neighbors are? the HK metal titans Hermetic Silence, Bereavement and Dysmal Prophecy!!! that’s so rad that our metal hero’s are on the same floor as us!!! hahahaha…they’re right down the hallway from us! :-) we’ve also found out that another 2 bands that we’re friends with might be moving in to our floor as well!!! :-) new party zone boys and girls…

    mushie was a hero though! also, his poor cousin (6 years old) is in the hospital suffering from third degree burns to her body!!! please keep her in your prayers everyone…imagine a 6 year old little girl with such severe burns… :-( one of the saddest things i’ve heard…

    can’t wait to go back to work tomorrow…i forgot how hard my last name is to pronounce! my last name is Farooqi so the kids have to call me Mr. Farooqi…but most of them cannot pronounce it so they accidentally say “Mr. Froggy”! hahahaha…or “Mr. Freaky”! :-) i’m like…”NO – I’m not Mr. Freaky thank you very much!” :-) kids rule…

    yo – its our bro Pong’s birthday! happy birthday dude!!! we got a nice present for him and was supposed to “surprise” him with it – but i messed up! hahahaha…i ruined the surprise so i suck! anyway…HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    hey – did any of you guys go to the any of the protests yesterday? i am SO pissed that i didn’t have time to go to any of them because we’re moving to a new bandroom and we had to go get stuff ready for it yesterday…i wanted to go to the anti-GST one and the one against the destruction of the Central star ferry pier. i can’t wait to wake up monday morning to see what the newspapers have to say about the protests. the english newspaper had a GREAT article about the Star Ferry pier yesterday…there’s so much history in that pier that will be lost after its destroyed. for example, one of the biggest riots that HK has ever seen in 1966 actually exploded due to a 5 cent rise in the Star Ferry price and people went crazy about it and used this excuse to go nuts (their were other things going on obviously at the time – do some research and you’ll know what). so now this piece of history is being destroyed. but for what? to build another stupid shopping mall. WHAT THE HELL!??!?! how many do we need! and especially in the Central area?!?!?! that whole are is already commercial beyond belief! all remnants of anything historic, or anything with more sentimental value then a stupid frickin’ Gucci bag is being taken away from us…the worst part is that we can’t do anything about it. this is already in the government’s plans – the destruction will be part of Phase III of the stupid project.

    right now i’m watching Michael Buble on TV…this dude can sing…great voice…his original song with the words “another winter day has come and gone away…” is a an amazing song man. hey – and since we’re talking about music…our pal Ryan Hui’s CD ep is in stores now!!! and its SOOOOOOOO damn good! the first song on the CD is great – right away its got an amazing pop/punk sound to it. and the production! wow! its been awhile since i’ve heard something recorded so well from hong kong!!! so go buy it if you haven’t already! its so good!!!

    i also got the new slayer and unearth yesterday…both rule…slayer rules because they’re back in true form – like the good ol’ days…lyrics are pretty stupid though i’d have to say. the song called “jihad” has been hyped up so much because its supposedly about 9-11 but through the yes of the terrorists. but the lyrics are just poorly written – you have no real clue what’s being said. and is pretty stupid in general.

    also – Man (our drummer boy) made me an awesome classic Hong Kong pop song CD yesterday! he put like 100+ songs on it and i’m trying to listen to all of it slowly! these songs are like from the 80′s and are HK classics…so far my favorite song is this one: 難為正邪定分界MAN!!! what an amazing song!!! the vocals on this song is CRAZY…two awesome vocalists kicking ass on this classic HK pop song…

    alright – HAPPY BIRTHDAY PONG!!! hope you have a wonderful day! (i know that won’t be possible because he’s working all day today then at night we’re moving ALL our crap from our old room to our new room!!! that’s going to suck…our bro Mushie from STW is going to come and help us!!! :-)
