goddam…moving the 2 huge gigantic pieces of glass that is going to be our window separating the practice/studio with the office was hell last night…but me and chai got it done in a professional manner i have to add…we were so professional – totally yelling profanity at the top of our lungs while moving that crap from our old crap room to our new looking better everyday room…

short message…sorry…too tired to type more. the awesome Texas is the Reason reunion show that took place in NYC last weekend has a couple videos up on youtube…i linked them on to our forum…check it out and enjoy one of the pioneers of this emo/punk thing who made it something special and beautiful before it got ruined by bands like my chemical garbage…

check out this link CLICK HERE!!! to find out more information about our upcoming return to the wonderful world of Bangkok!!! we can’t wait to be back there…especially to be there with man and g…it’s going to be rad…if chai could come too it’d be perfect but the dude’s gotta work hard…he’s traveling to the UK in the next few days so that’s going to be awesome!!! anyway…we can’t wait to see all our Thai friends again!!! the festival we’re playing has something like 30 local Thai bands playing so it’s going to be INSANE!!!

i’ve uploaded some photos from our last show (the HKU show last weekend) so check out those photos when you have the time! click HERE!!!

this discussion about the lack of concrete measures to tackle pollution that is coming into hong kong from factories over the border is really quite funny…our chief executive is just too much of a pussy to do anything about it. he’s too scared to challenge beijing and china about anything regarding the well-being of HK citizens. but more and more powerful business leaders in HK are beginning to push the government to do more. will they do more? who knows. HK’s governments main concern is money – so if the business leaders are beginning to complain – that maybe the government will finally listen. it doesn’t matter that a huge majority of the HK public are complaining…the most important group of people in HK are the business leaders.

our new room is almost done!!! man – i’m so excited…its been a LONG time since we’ve been working on not jus THIS room but the other room that got flooded too…we have to move out of our flooded room by this thursday so we have SO MUCH to do before then. once the bandroom part is ready this week we can at least start moving all the equipment in. but the studio/office part probably won’t be ready for a bit longer because Chai is a genius and he’s going to be adding some cool stuff in there. he’s already done ALL the lighting over again in the entire room!??!?! WHAT?!?! that’s right…he took the old lights out and put new one’s in…he’s a genius.

okay – i promised my band members that i was going to put this link up now…some of you might remember one of our bestfriends in Hong Kong’s band scene used to be this band called Lam Kei…one of my dear friends Sammy used to be pretty much the main guy in this band and he was someone that i met 7 years ago at a show at the Warehouse. Lam Kei was already playing before we started playing but soon after we started Lam Kei and King Ly Chee were ALWAYS playing together…it went on like that for a few years. and then sadly, they broke up for various reasons. Sammy and Zhu Chai went on form a brand new and kick-ass local pop-rock band called Kolor. but the one person that has been missing in action for the past few years was one of the singers of Lam Kei – our other old friend Jazz. but guess what ladies and gentlemen! our pal Nic found Jazz online! and guess what he’s doing now? better yet – guess who he’s become now!!! you have to check out this URL to believe it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxWjWe0jV1c

dude! last night was such a fun night for a show! the crowd was very small – i think about a 100-something which isn’t bad for a rainy saturday night at a show that could’ve promoted a lot more! but the bands last night were so awesome…DSC – dude…i totally feel like those guys are role models…they’ve been playing heavy music in HK for so many years and are STILL playing! that’s amazing…so amazing…and they’re so damn good and such nice guys…Elf Fatima was amazing too last night – i bought their CD right away…can’t wait to download it on to my ipod later on…false alarm were fun too – it was weird that no one really moved around for them. i think they’re an awesome local band that for some reason people don’t get into too much at shows…which is weird…Luke Chow was on last night too – great vocals…our pals in spermatic chord were cool too – i didn’t know Dying Process was over!!! man – now THAT was a good band!

we played 6 song and had such a good time playing…it felt like the early days last night…like the first year that KLC was around – not that many people knew us then, but everyone that was watching us back then were at least having a fun time laughing! so we have a temporary name for our new song called “Luke Chow”! :-) hahahahha…you gotta ask Luke why it’s called that…all i know is that Luke started the circle pit for our band new song! that was the FIRST time i’ve ever seen him mosh, move or run around for us…i was scared that he was going to get killed! hahahahha…thanks Luke for showing some love!!!

anyway – thanks everyone for last night…it was another fun show for us…keep thinking how lucky we are that shows have consistently been fun since we’ve gotten back even the macau fiasco! hahahaha…next stop – Bangkok!!!

dude…spent the whole day in our new bandroom yesterday on working on the damn wall that’s going to separate the practice room part from the main office/studio area. i can’t believe how long it’s taking to put this thing up…but if we didn’t have Chai i think we would’ve killed ourselves by now. actually – if we didn’t have Chai then the wall would NEVER have gone up because he’s the only one that goes up on a daily basis and stays there overnight and works and works. right now its 12:40am on late friday night/early Saturday morning and he’s STILL there working on the damn wall. he has already been there since thursday and hasn’t slept SINCE then. he’s probably going to stay at the room all night tonight and work on it until tomorrow morning…

i was just there for 12 hours today working on the wall and i feel dead…i don’t know how he does it. i know that i had to buy him 4 cans of red bull which he drank within the first couple hours i was up there so maybe that’s what helps! hahahaha…the really cool thing about this dude is that even though he hasn’t slept since wednesday night, he still works with such a positive attitude. i was messing around with him all day yesterday! we even filmed some funny crap…hahahaha…i’ll put it up somewhere eventually…

SHOW TONIGHT!!!
see you at the Warehouse at 8:30pm!!!

anyway – the crazy thing was that we were listening to the radio all day yesterday…every radio station continuously was talking about Ching Cheong’s sad case…his appeal resulted in that he still has to do 5 years in jail. what a test to this guys’ passion/love and patriotism of his country. the same country that’s jailing him. but the saddest part is the fact that our government here in HK is so damn useless. there’s nothing they can do or WILL do to protect their citizens of this city. their excuse is of course that the Central government is the one who makes the final decisions…so there’s nothing they can do. as an HK citizen that scares me…what if i wrongfully get thrown in jail up in china? who am i going to call to help fight for me? it’s crazy…
