    then after this show…we’ve all decided its time to start writing songs!!! woohoo!!! can’t wait…anyone that knows me knows how much i want to keep writing and writing and writing…that’s all i want to do. i HATE practicing old songs…hahahaha…

    the month of fasting has started in the Islamic calendar and i should be fasting…but i’m lame…so this is more like a month of being guilty instead. anyway…so to all my Malaysian muslim brothers down there – RAMZAAN MUBARAK! :-) i’m sure you guys are all doing a better job at being a Muslim then i am! hahahaha….

    found out some stupid news from the place i work in…i was hoping that with my degree done (whenever that happens), and the fact that i am an alumni of the school, and have been TA-ing there for the past 4 years, that it would help when i applied for a teaching job. but my principal pretty much shot me down (albeit, in a very very nice way) yesterday which kind of sucks. but she was trying to be very honest with me and the fact that i haven’t actually TAUGHT yet makes it VERY difficult for her to hire me.


    more lovely stuff…

    our bro Hang’s (ex-Guan 36 bass player, ex-Hardpack bass player…) new punk band Unjustified Yoke (UY) will be playing their first show on saturday…they were supposed to play sunday and we were all going to run over to LLNR to watch them after we got back from macau…but they’ve been switched to saturday, much to our dismay…but for those of you who are going to be in HK on Saturday then go check them out!!! they’re playing at 7pm! i haven’t seen him on stage since he played for Hardpack man!!! damn – that was like more than a 1 year ago…too bad i’m still going to have to wait another month probably to see him…but its going to be rad when it happens! :-) compliment him on his new bass :-)

    a report came out from the US intelligence office that the war in Iraq has caused and given birth to a new breed of terrorists – people who are so pissed off at the US invading Iraq that they have joined terrorist organizations. ANYONE ON THIS PLANET COULD’VE TOLD THE STUPID US GOVERNMENT THAT THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN!!! how could they have NOT known that this was going to happen? of course Muslims from that part of the world were going to hate the US even more…so now, even moderate Muslims are probably taking a harder stance against the US. that country is run by the stupidest people on this planet. a moron running the world’s most powerful country spending billions of dollars on military and arms and crap like that while people are starving all over the world.

    dude…i had such an awesome day yesterday…had band practice using this new gear that i bought over the weekend and my guitar sounds so much frickin’ better. thank god…about time if you ask me. i know a lot of people liked my guitar sound…but i haven’t been happy with it in a long time. anyway, with my new gear things sound so much better…for me at least…

    then hung out with G and went all the way out to Lamm Island because an old friend, pranjal, was celebrating his birthday at his house there. it was an awesome fun night! he’s vegan so they had like all this vegan food out…he made this amazing vegan chocolate mousse and i’m telling him he needs to start selling that stuff! cause its so good! some of the best most healthiest stuff i’ve eaten in a long time.

    dude – i think my air-conditioner in my room is messed up…its spewing warm air. sucks…at least the weather is getting cooler so that’s a good thing…

    okay – going to bed…seeya…happy birthday pranjal!

    hey – last night was one of the biggest days in Pong’s life and we are ALL so happy that he is now a free man! :-) we’ve all been waiting for this day for a long time and now the chains have been ripped and torn off of his legs…new days are beginning and a new start to his new life! its going to rule bro! we’re here bro supporting you all the way! :-)

    dude…don’t watch The Devil Wears Prada…its quite possibly the stupidest movie i have ever seen in my life. i’ve seen some bad movies – but this is the worst. stupid story, bad script, shot pretty well, but shot so as the actual point of the story is lost. i think they’re trying to say that beauty actually lies within…but with such a huge focus on the fashion world i think they actually PROMOTED that lifestyle more than the moral of this movie. so people will probably walk out of that movie thinking “wow – those girls looked so cool in their Gucci, D&G, etc. clothes”. stupid movie.

    man our first show in 5 months is coming up…we can’t wait! but unfortunately their are over 20 bands playing in like 8 hours (its like the Cream/Levi’s Red Move show all over again! remember that?) so we’re not expecting this to run smoothly. i know this much that the organizers have been super nice. but for us, there are a few things that are getting us excited about the show:

    1. first show with new line-up…Man on drums, G singing…
    2. playing Macau again – macau RULES
    3. seeing all our Macau friends from the last time we played there…these guys/girls are the best and super passionate supporters of our band!!! can’t wait to see them and see what kind of hell they raise while we’re playing! hahahaha…

    so it should be fun…in a few days…the Start From Scratch banners should be ready, stickers and flyers as well by both the Macau festival and the LLNR fest! great weekend of music coming up! :-)

    dude…got the phone call from my university yesterday. i still have to do the whole other degree…so i will be studying for another frickin’ year. they said that if i want to go faster that means sometimes i should do 2 classes at one time. OH MY GOD! that’s going to be crazy…but the most important part is them to decide who is going to pay for half of this. since they put me in the wrong one then i think they should pay for the remaining credits. but they still have to decide to see what happens.

    i think its amazing that a judge found that moron  Johnny Chan Sek-ming guilty for posting on a website trying to promote this stupid “flash mob rape” action. he was going to get 5-6 men together to go out and rape single women. while one person was raping the women, the others would “look out” for people coming by. then they would tie the woman’s hands behind her back and leave her there. this idiot told the court that he was just joking and that he wasn’t really going to do it. but the judge still found him guilty and he’s going to serve 7 years in jail for typing such a horrible message online. the judge said that even if he was joking, there are people out there who MAY actually go out and do something this disgusting to woman.

    why are their so many heartless people that live on this planet? i mean – especially online, people who can hide behind their stupid “usernames”? the cool thing about this incident is that the police were still able to find out where this guy lived by tracing his postings. they contacted the internet service provider that this guy used and so they were able to catch this guy. but think about all the other people out there who post racist, homophobic, sexist, etc., messages out there hiding behind a username. its like they’re out there deliberately wanting to hurt people…because they don’t have to face the consequences of their actions.

    anyway – one of our good friends has recently had his father enter a hospital…this poor guy had to work OT 2 nights ago and wasn’t able to go see his father…so our hearts go out to this friend of ours. he is already over stressed about things going in his life, and now he has to deal with this…good luck brother! you will get through this…

    sorry…the website for our new record label called Start From Scratch Records is not ready yet. you can at least go over to the site and have a look – but none of the pages are up and the main news page is pretty messed up. once again, just go over to our myspace page to find out more about the label, the bands and what we’re about. hopefully the website will be ready soon…

    had an awesome time last night hanging out at this cafe in Yau Ma Tei with nic and his group of friends…nice people all of them! thanks for a good night nic!

    dude…can you believe this stuff going on in thailand? military coup? wow…that’s pretty intense. at least the military knows that they better think about returning power to the people as soon as possible…martial law, and military rule is not a good idea especially in a country that bows down to a monarchy as much as they do. but so far it seems that their has been minimal disruption to everyday life in Thailand. a few days ago i talked to our good friend Yos about the festival that he’s inviting us to in December and he didn’t even mention the military presence in that city right now…

    what up…its my pal nic’s birthday today! happy birthday bro and hope you have a wonderful day and a wonderful year! see you later tonight! :-)

    had a fun jam…broke a string near the end of practicing one set…then got a phone call from the macau organizers and they’re trying to inform ALL the bands that they can ONLY perform for a certain amount of time. there are SO MANY bands playing and they’re afraid that everything will overrun…which will for sure…i assured him that everythign will overrun. after us, our favorite drummer Jun is going to take to the stage so that’s going to be awesome to be on stage with him again…cool awesome guy…and G thinks he’s hot. hahahaha… :-) g – you’re SOOO busted! hahaha…

    finished the Kite Runner last night and it was such a good book…got a myspace email from Alex of Hard Candy and she said that she’s reading it now too…some crazy stuff happens in that book that totally disgusts you…but there are so many other emotional stuff that goes on. i bought another book called Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close about a 9 year old boy whose father (the love of his life) dies in the 9-11 attacks…and the boy is trying to cope with this loss but at the same time finds out that the dad left something behind for the boy to discover…and this unlocks a whole new world for the boy – and discovering what his family is all about at the same time…hopefully its going to be a  good book…

    books are awesome…awesome…i find myself trying to find any little second throughout the day to read a few pages…if its a good book that is. in the past i’ve picked up books and end up thinking how crap they are and put them down. so i’ve learned that if i’m in a bookstore that i really have to take my time and read the back cover of each book and see if its something that i’d be into. then read a few pages on the inside…a good book grabs my attention right away…that much i know.

    check out the design for the new Kwun Tong city center on our forum page! its crazy…how hell are they going to plan for this? it looks like a HUGE undertaking…and that part of Kwun Tong is busy 24 hours a day…so how are they going to do this without seriously disrupting life in this area? pretty crazy…the 3 plans they have DO look amazing though. it would make Kwun Tong so much more welcoming…right now the dilapidated torn down old industrial look of the area contradicts the new malls that have been going up left and right…it also contradicts the amount of life that is found in this area. SO MANY people live here…shouldn’t they all have a better life and living environment too? i think so…anyway – click HERE!!! to check it out…

    g told us two nights ago that our pals in Los En Found have made it into the semi-finals of the battle of bands competition!!! WOOHOO!!! dude – i’m not surprised because their songs have gotten so much better…plus they’re amazing LIVE too!!! they would be a wonderful band to represent HK if they won this year’s battle of the bands! good job guys!!! hopefully this will continue to inspire you guys to keep working hard on your band and music!!!

    this book that i mentioned yesterday is an crazy book…it has the strongest stranglehold of my emotions. at times i can laugh, at times i feel my heart beating fast, at times i feel so disgusted that i want to curse this cruel/evil world. the book, like mentioned, i based in the chaotic days of afghanistan…before the Russians attacked Afghanistan…to when the Russians lost the war to the Taliban…then book talks about just how contradictory the taliban was when dealing with “islam” because they felt that they should follow the Koran literally instead of looking at based on the times that it was written.

    anyway – the book is called The Kite Runner…i got it last saturday and i have not been able to put it down yet…its worth anyone’s time to get an insight to a life in a war-torn world of a generation of children who ONLY know the sounds of gunfire, bombs, landmines, chaos, helicopters, fighting, and war…
