LONG DAY

Dude – had an insanely long day yesterday…happy it’s WAY over…and excited because today I’m watching the new Transformers movie!!! OH YEAH!!! 昨天的日子太长了。。。很开心昨天已经完了。。。今天我跟我办好朋友将会看最新transformers!!! 太期待了!!!

So for the past 2 weeks I’ve been running everynight and it is GRUELING! It has been insanely grueling because I keep trying to push myself and run a bit more and pick up mypace. These past 3 days I’ve been doing almost 50 minutes at a good pace so I’m VERY proud of myself! :-) 这两个礼拜我每晚出去跑步。真的很辛苦。。。我每晚就推动我自己跑的再长一个路,然后我慢慢加速度。。。这三天我终于开始跑了差不多五十分钟。三天前我跑了一个小时!

可是我最开心是我跑的路:Actually, the proudest part is the running route that I have:

1. Start under my house on Ashley Road 在我家下开始 (亞士厘道) 2. Run to the Star Ferry (TST of course) 尖沙咀天星码头的方向跑 3. Run along the harbor passed everything…然后全尖沙咀的海边跑 (我们这里有一条路 - 包括这个挺无聊的“星光大道” - 十分无聊的达到) 4. Run up the pedestrian walkway that takes you to Hung Hom 然后跑上一个行人天桥向紅磡的方向) 5. Run along the inner road of the harbor towards the Hung Hom Ferry Pier 在紅磡的海边跑到紅磡码头的方向 6. Run to the Hung Hom Ferry Pier and then turn around 到了紅磡码头然后转回去尖沙咀天星码头。。。 7. Do the same route but backwards all the way back to Star Ferry Pier…到了天星码头的便利店买一个挺大瓶水!!!哈哈哈哈。。。。

I do this all in about 45 minutes!!! Pretty excited about that…even more exciting – I bumped into our old awesome drummer Kevin last night and he has lost CRAZY weight!!! And he said he’s been running along the TST harbor too! hahahahaha…great minds think alike! :-) 我这个路大概四十五分钟左右可以做得到。真的很兴奋!!!昨天晚上我跟alison逛逛的时候撞到我们以前非常厉害的鼓手kevin.我一见到知道他也有减肥!然后他说因为他每晚有跑步!他跑的路跟我差不多!哈哈哈哈。。。可是他跑的时间比我晚很多!大概晚上的三点钟!哈哈哈哈哈。。。

Yesterday – I fell in love with the Hatebreed album “Rise of Brutality” again…I forgot how good this album was…Great album – awesome simple as fuck lyrics..their lyrics have spoken to me especially this year..我昨天做gym的时候再爱上了hatebreed的舊唱片叫rise of brutality。。。太牛逼了。。。歌词有简单 - 也代表的我的心。especially今年。。。

So Brian called me yesterday in the afternoon and I could tell he was very excited about something! Hahahahahaha…he started by saying 昨天brian有打电话给我。我一听到他的声音知道很兴奋!:

“Hey you know a famous Taiwanese singer named 范曉萱。你认识这个台湾的歌手吗 范曉萱?” I said, “Nope…never heard of him” 我回答,“没有” He then said, “Well he’s a HUGE singer and basically every single HK person knows who he is…” 然后他说,“反正在香港差不多每个人一定听过这个歌手!他是非常出名的。” I replied, “Okay” 我说,“哦” He then said, “Well the reason I’m telling you about him is that he’s in Hong Kong for some show and he was just doing an interview on the radio. The DJ asked him if he knows any Hong Kong bands. The first band he said was Beyond, then the second band he said was King Ly Chee!!!” 然后他说,“我提他的原因是他现在是在香港宣传的演出。他刚才是电台做个访问。这个电台的主持人有问他 ‘你认识什么香港的乐队?’。然后他有说”我认识beyond………….还有king ly chee”!!!! I replied “WHAT?!?!??! That’s pretty cool!!!”我回答,“真的吗?!?!??!?!非常酷!!!”

I could tell Brian was very proud about this! We were named AFTER Beyond?!?!?! WHAT?!?!?! That’s crazy!!! It’s awesome that people outside of Hong Kong know who we are! We haven’t heard our name mentioned on the radio in a very LONG time so that was very nice of this person to name us…我感觉到brian对这件事挺proud. 这代表荔枝王就在他的心里有一个很深的位子。:-) 这个歌手放了我们的名字在beyond之后?!??!!真的很酷!!

If you read this website (yeah right – hahahahaha), we’re still here after 10 years!!! The players may have changed a million times, but the heart’s the same and like I’ve written in many songs these past 10 years, there’s NO GIVING UP FOR ME NO MATTER WHAT. 范曉萱 – 如果你有看我们这个网站(我知道不可能哈哈哈)那我想告诉你 – 我们还在!!!十年后我们还在!当然成员变了很多次 – 可是这个乐队的态度和目标还没变!!!在我们很多歌词里你可以看我们的最重要一个态度 – 无论如何我们永远不会放弃!

TRANSFORMERS 2, TIME MAGAZINE, DAVE LOMBARDO…

Yo…13 of us are going to be watching the new and definitely awesome Transformers on Thursday at 9:45pm!!! It is GOING to be awesome for sure!!! FOR SURE!!! To all those of you who don’t see or understand the beauty of Transformers – I only have 2 words for you: YOU SUCK!!! hahahahahahahahaha…just kidding…no really, you suck…just kidding…no, really…You have to all go check out this amazing website www.transformersmovie.com .太兴奋了!!!我们十三个兄弟这个礼拜四将会过去看最新的Transformers!!!我真的很期待这部电影!!如果你是一位不觉得transformers的电影有什么特别 – 那我只有一个句子给你们听 – 你是一个笨蛋!!!哈哈哈哈哈。。。就是开玩笑。。。可是我真的觉得你是一位笨蛋。。。哈哈哈。。。再说笑。。。真的。。。笨蛋。。。呵呵呵!

Here’s an awesome interview with Slayer’s legendary drummer Dave Lombardo…great interview 这里有个非常好看的访问。是跟slayer的鼓手: AWESOME INTERVIEW!!!

I have been subscribing to news magazines like Time for many many years…I think any singer of a heavy band (especially hardcore) that doesn’t read news-related media (whether that be magazines, newspapers, websites, etc) is SOOOOO weird. What the hell do you write about when you don’t read? How can you present an educated argument when you don’t do any homework to prepare support and evidence for your songs? 好的 – 到了我今天最想说的题目。我真的不知道我怎么可以用中文代表我所想说的事情。。。可是我会尽量试一试。。。

我这几年订閱本杂志叫Time。。。大家一定听过了这本杂志呢。(可是真的说,我不明白一般在玩重音乐的注音不喜欢看关于世界新闻的书或者网站或者杂志。。。如果你是在一个硬核乐队唱歌你还不看这样的东西?挺奇怪。。。那你的歌通常是关于什么?如果是关于社会的问题那你为什么不会看多点书,等等,拿到多点资料可以支持你的歌的立场?你说话的时或者唱歌的时最重要是有证明支持你所说和唱的东西。。。这样你才有力量改变你想改变的事情。对不起 – 这就是我的看法。你不喜欢我这样说 – 那对不起了。

反正 – 我为什么提了这件事是因为这期的time杂志是我最喜欢的。。。真的。我从来没有看过一期time比这个好。

这期他们的重点是在1989年所发生的事。当然 – 一说1989那我们在中国里住的人一定会一定想起一件事。可是,当年还有挺多东西发生!!!全地球真的有非常重要的东西发生!!!

这期他们有提当年的每一件发生的事!!!真的我看完每一个文章我觉得我的人聪明了一点点!!!:-) 写文章的记者全部是当年还在每个地方的人。。。挺好看。。。他们说见过的东西 -挺有意思。。。

如果你们可以买这本杂志的话快点去买了!!!本杂志的封面是:
1989 – 20 Years Ago, The World Changed

Anyway, this latest issue of Time magazine is the best issue I have read EVER. The entire issue is about all the events that took place in 1989. Of course when we all think about 1989 the main incident that comes to mind is what happened in Beijing. But, we all forget the many MANY other things that happened all over the world that same year!!! And this issue of Time talks about every single incident that took place all over the world and the articles are written by people who were actually THERE!!!

Honestly, with every article I read in this issue, I felt myself get that much more smarter, and definitely more cultured and educated…it’s a great feeling. If you have a chance – then go get this issue…the issue is called – 1989 – 20 Years Ago, The World Changed.

Damn – now I have to translate all that…shit.

IRON MAIDEN FLIGHT 666 DVD!

OH MY GOD!!! If you are a TRUE fan of metal then you HAVE to watch this DVD!!! This is a DVD following Iron Maiden when they want their HUGE world tour where the singer actually flew the plane that took them from stop to stop!!! (Hence the name Flight 666)…大家爱金属音乐的兄弟姐妹需要马上去看Iron Maiden的最新DVD!!! 这DVD是关于他们最新全地球的巡演!!!他们巡演的时候是他们的注音Bruce Dickinson开飞机!!!从一个占到第二个站都是开飞机!!!

I just can’t believe how HUGE this band is…of course I knew they were huge…when I first got into them I was a 12 year old little kid and just wanted to listen to some good metal…and they were the best at the time to me. Now I listen back to all their stuff and I can’t believe just HOW GOOD THEY WERE!!! There’s still no metal/melodic band that is better then Iron Maiden in my eyes…我真的不相信这个乐队是那么大!!!当然我十二岁的时候第一次听他们的唱片我已经知道他们是金属音乐里面其中一个最厉害的乐队。可是你看这个dvd的时候你真的不相信他们有那么多人也支持他们!!!你还有记得他们从来没有一个主流电台节目支持他们的音乐和乐队。。。所以他们有那么多歌迷是因为这般支持者是真的支持这个乐队的音乐!!!非常好的感觉 因为我也是其中一个Iron Maiden的支持者!!! UP THE IRONS!!!

To think that that this band got so big without ever being played on mainstream radio or TV is just unbelievable…

You all HAVE to watch this DVD ASAP!!!

NANJING NANJING南京南京

So I finally watched this movie…我昨天终于看了这部电影。。。

I had to brace myself before I watched it. I actually had to sit down and be mentally prepared for all the things that I was about to see. I read “The Rape of Nanjing” many many years ago and in that book I had to put it down MANY times because of all the horrible things that happened to the poor Chinese people of this city…The book was written in such graphic detail that it scared me from continuing to read the book. But to better understand history, we can’t run away from what happened so I built up the courage and continued to read the book. 看这部电影之前我用了一点儿时间准备我自己。我有准备我自己的心态因为我已经听了不少人说这部电影的镜头是非常非常清楚。。。我几年前有看了一本书叫 “The Rape Of Nanjing”。。。这本书是非常非常恐怖。我看这本书的时候差不多有嘔几次。。。这个那么恐怖的事情怎么可以发生?!?!有时候我真的不想继续看这本书。。。可是如果我们要学东西,学怎么做好人,那我们不可以隐瞒很敏感的事情。。。所以我有force自己继续看。

I needed to do the same thing as I watched this movie. Every few minutes I would look at the clock hoping that that movie was almost over…but it kept going…我看这部电影跟我那本书一样需要force自己继续看。没几分钟我会看着我的钟希望这部电影只有多几分钟然后完了。。。可是没有。。。过了一个很恐怖的镜头又到另外一个恐怖的镜头。。。

I think just like all the movies made about the holocaust, this is another movie that everyone SHOULD watch to better understand the evil that transpired in Nanjing. 我觉得跟“大屠杀”的电影一样 – 全世界有看“南京南京”。。。全世界有看这个时候在这个城市发生了什么恐怖的东西。。。

The evil that is inherent in all human beings is really scary….这个地球的涉恶的人真的太多了。。。很恐怕现代应该还有很多一样那么涉恶的人。。。这样的事会不会再发生呢?可是已经有了 – 近几年前在非洲的国家叫盧安達…
