    dude…i LOVE Time magazine (except for all the millions of articles on the US that keep filling up the pages of the issues that i get…)…recently they’ve focused a few issues on the recent 60 year anniversary of India and Pakistan’s independence from British rule…of course, since I’m Pakistani reading through these articles have been super emotional for me and even more so because these articles also focus on the history behind all the things that happened. the best part is learning about things that you never knew…for example, even though Pakistan became an independent country in 1947 giving a home to the millions of Muslims that lived in british-ruled India – the IDEA of a separate “state” or country for the Muslims was first thought of in the 1930′s by a poet named Muhammad Iqbal. it was him with his incredible foresight and observant eye that saw what was going on to the poor Jews during the World Wars and how as European countries opened their borders to the minority Jews, the Jews began to slowly lose their united spirit and culture. he was scared that once the British left India, the Muslim minority of the country might lose their power and place in society as it gets absorbed by the majority Hindus of India. (also, did you know that India was once dominated by Muslims!!! i didn’t know that!) so he realized that what was really needed for the Muslims of India is an independent country…and he decided that a name for that country or state should be a mix of letters formed by the provinces of India at the time…P for Punjab, A for Afganiyat, K for Kashmir, S for Sindh and ending with “tan” from the province Baluchistan…and that’s where the name “Pakistan” came from! how cool!!!


    比如, 原來巴基斯坦的英文名字”Pakistan”是一個詩人給得…英國離開印度之前印度也有很多回教人(現在還有)…這個詩人也是回教人…他一九三零年已經覺得印度應該有一個獨立的地方為了印度的回教人…因為他怕英國離開印度之後回教人會慢慢沒有自己的文化 – 慢慢他們會採納印度徒的文化…所以他的意見是給一個獨立的地方印度的回教徒的人…他說這個地方應該叫”PAKISTAN”因為當時印度有很多省…這詩人說:


    可能對你們沒有什麼意思! hahahaha…對我很有意思!!!

    現在在新聞每天看到中國的製造業受到美國政府的抨擊…我每次看這個新聞我直刻想這一定是一個美國的陰謀! 當然中國的製造業製造的時候需要多一點小心因為別人的安全是非常非常重要! 可是一本美國的雜誌已經說了美國的政府現在會想一想放一個貼誌在中國做的產品上…貼誌會寫”China Free”! 的意思”不是中國做的產品”! so stupid…他們的意思是不是中國全部做的產品是不安全嗎? 他們的意思是不是其他地方作得產品一定是安全? 我覺得他們這樣做有第二的意思是因為他們知道中國越來越有力量…當然我的意思是經濟上…所以我的感覺是美國政府是想影響中國經濟的力量…我明白如果產品是不安全那是製造業的責任歸還全部產品, 而且學這個教訓因為他們應該希望下次不再經這個事情…

    so annoying…

    i don’t know what you all think about this daily attack on China made products that the US government has been on a huge kick on lately. of course, we ALL agree that products should be made with safe materials that don’t harm humans or the environment. but this all could’ve been handled in a much better way. it seems to me that it’s almost a conspiracy of sorts to try and destroy China’s rising power in economics and trade…

    the reason that i’m most annoyed is that in Time magazine they recently printed that the US government is actually considering putting a sticker on products that say “China Free”! WHAT THE HELL!??!?! that’s just plain stupid. not ALL products made in China are harmful to people! and does that mean products made elsewhere are all safe too? give me a break…

    went to the independent film festival called Sonatrope last night…it was a good time…couldn’t find anyone to go with me so i went by myself but still had a good time watching some awesome independent movies about music scenes around the world.

    the first movie was about the Korean punk rock scene – and it centered around a placed called Drug that we played at! :-) we actually played 3 shows there back to back way back in 2000…we met some of our greatest friends in korea through that show and that time at Drug (our good pals in the Korean hardcore band Johnny Royal)…they also interviewed an AWESOME korean punk rock band that we also played with back then Crying Nut…seriously – Crying Nut is probably one of the best Asian punk rock bands…in my eyes at least…so good…

    the next movie was a movie about the old culture of “Riot Grrls” that was HUGE in the US in the early 90′s. this was a good movie to watch because even when i went to college back in 94-98 i had always heard about “riot grrls” and saw a lot of girls claiming to be “riot grrls” but by the time i was in the US the whole culture of “riot grrls” already carried quite a negative feeling to it.

    then i went down to get some food with our pal Deb and met her boyfriend simon and then went back to watch a supposed “hip-hop” movie about a minority group in southern Taiwan that uses the traditional sounds of their people and mix it with modern music to keep their culture and traditions alive. good movie! really really funny i thought…

    then it was an awesome movie about South African hip-hop totally focused around women involved with hip-hop in South Africa!!! it was SOOOO good!!! talked about really important things about the difference that African culture had on the type of hip-hop that is created in Africa and the lyrical content…

    dude – it was a great night…i feel like my mind was pried open and filled with more knowledge of underground music communities from all over the world!!! hip-hop in Taiwan – hip hop in South Africa, punk rock in Korea – riot grrls in the US…great night…

    昨天晚上我去了看一個獨立的電影節! 昨天晚上的電影全部是關於這個地球不同的地下音樂社會…

    第一個電影是關於韓國的punk rock. 這部電影是關於一個地方叫Drug…我們七年前在這裡演了出! hahahaha…訪問人也訪問一個非常好聽的韓國punkrock樂隊叫Crying Nut!!! 我自己覺得我那麼多年聽亞洲punk的樂隊他們是最正的punk樂隊!!!! sooooooo good…

    這部電影之後到了一個關於Riot Grrls的電影. Riot Grrls是九十年代美國punk其中一個元素…是關於女人在punk/hardcore社會的革命. 我在美國讀大學的時候也記得看了這個東西…當時有很多不同的punk社會. 當然有pop-punk, oldschool, crust-punk, 等等…還有一個是關於女的社會叫”riot grrls”…如果你聽過美國全女仔樂隊Bikini Kill, Sleater Kinney, Heaven’s Betsy, 等等那你已經認識這個punk社會的風格. 看了這部電影現明白riot grrls 怎麼開始, 而且怎麼完…還有為什麼完了怎麼不好…非常有趣!!!

    然後到了一部電影關於南台灣的小數民族. 是說台灣其中一個小數民族怎麼樣可以保護他們的音樂! 他們有兩百年的歷史然後現在的年輕人怎麼樣同化了現代音樂放在他們自己的音樂到.

    然後到了給我最大的影響…是關於南非洲的hiphop文化!!! 可是不是全部南非洲的hiphop…是說南非洲hip-hop的女人!!! 因為我對南非洲不太清楚我完全沒有什麼idea…我不知道他們在那裡有很多女人是MC, DJ, 等等…看完了之後我對南非洲hiphop 很有興趣!!!

    我自己一個人去了看因為我找不到人陪我看…可是完全值得…我現在覺得有人打開了我的心放進去很多知識!!! 我現在覺得我的心是更加開放…hiphop不是就是一個美國的文化, 現在全地球知道hiphop這個文化然後全地球的人會慢慢加了他們自己國家的文化改了這個文化…

    great night…

    last night’s show was fun!!! it was crazy because we all had to work all day and then go to our bandroom after work to pack and get stuff ready…our drummer boy Man works in advertising so his hours are INSANE…he works like 12-15 hours a day…last night he worked until 10pm then i think he took a taxi and came to the show, played the show, then went back to his office to keep working. that SUCKS!!! repeat that after me – S U C K S for him! it’s 1:35am and he’s still in the office now…crazy…

    anyway – BIG thank you to the organizers for inviting us to play this show…BIG thank you to all the bands who were nice enough to say hello etc…big thank you to Maniac for letting us borrown their drum gear because our genius singer G left all of Man’s stuff in the bandroom…hahahaha…he didn’t even have drum sticks last night!

    okay going to bed…too tired…

    昨天晚上的演出非常好玩! 我們之前所有的樂隊(可是幾個樂隊我們miss了 :-( 我很想看我們朋友的樂隊Protoss!!!!) 全部是非常正!!! 非常開心可以跟那麼多新香港的樂隊一起來玩!!! 我們需要非常謝謝Maniac因為昨天晚上我們忘記了帶Man所有鼓的東西!!! hahahaha…他drumsticks 都沒有!!

    我英國的好朋友David在英國幫我買一對Iron Maiden的Vans!!! 昨天收到了!!! hahahahaha…looks soooo cooL!!

    hey – 昨天shepherds the weak在他們的myspace上載了一個很好笑得message. 有個人發了一個很好笑的message給他們. 然後STW有回答. 最好笑是在我們的myspace也收到一樣的message!!! hahahahaha…

    反正, 在STW的回答你可以看這一句: “THIS GOES OUT TO THE LOCAL KIDS TOO. IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY TO US OR OUR BRO BANDS LIKE KLC YOU FUCKING SAY IT TO OUR FACES DON’T BE A FUCKING PUSSY.” 再看到他們怎麼樣支持我們是很感動…可是他們這樣post有沒有用? 大家當然不知道…人想說什麼, 沒有人想控制…STW也不想控制別人的意見…就希望別人說話之前可以想一想他們說的話會怎麼樣影響其他人…(我也學過這個教訓!!!)…應該只需要記得大家都是人…做錯, 說錯, 全部是正常…再者, 我們是人所以在我們聽到別人怎麼樣說我們的時候當然會收到一個很心疼的感覺…我覺得, soon別人會明白怎麼樣尊重他人. 因為大家張大的時候會開始明白恨人真的是浪費自己的時間和精力.(特別是恨你不認識的人或者樂隊。) 當然小的時候大家一定不會這樣想!!! hahahaha…小的時候是很正常說”我不喜歡他/他們”, “聽說, 這個人是這樣, 那樣, 所以我也不喜歡他/他們”. 小的時候是很易斷絕友誼…可能是因為小的時候人通常有很多朋友, 認識很多多人. 然後你慢慢長大的時候會發現真的朋友是很少. 再者, 發現朋友的圈子越來越小…所以你自己會開始珍惜身邊的朋友…

    life is too short to waste time to hate…work on yourself自我提昇/自我改進…做一個好人需要一生的改進! 對不對? work on improving yourself…

    (大家可能不明白我的那麼差的中文, 可是我希望你們可以明白我的意思. 對不起! 一天我希望真的可以用中文表達我的心聲)
