CAN’T STOP, WON’T STOP (book书)

So I bought this book a couple days ago called “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop”. It’s a great little book that I just started. The book chronicles the beginnings of hip-hop and how the whole culture was formed out of the realities of city life in the Bronx part of NYC. To think about how this culture came out of severe poverty and injustice, makes me have HUGe respect for those people who follow hip-hop for the right reasons…not for the bullshit “bling” and “girls”…but using the music like we do in King Ly Chee to discuss issues that we face everyday…if you look at true hip-hop artists you will see that like us they sing about politics, culture clashes, racism, poverty, and various other issues of despair…我最近买了一本书叫can’t stop, won’t stop”. 是一本非常有趣的书因为这本书是讲嘻哈文化的历史。他们有说嘻哈怎么样在纽约开始 – 当时发生什么是影响人开始这种嘻哈文化。。。他们有说是因为纽约六十年代到七十年代中间经历很多关于对不同种族的不公正的事情,(当然最给社会marginalized的人是少数民族(特别是美国的黑人)(marginalize的中文我不知道怎么说。可能是:使局限於社會邊緣)所以这本书有说住在bronx区的人怎么样给政府和社会破坏他们的环境。这样改了他们的区变到一个挺穷的地方,有影响大部分住这里的白人搬走到nyc里别的地方。他们走了之后只有最穷最穷的人还在。所以这里慢慢开始有很多罪。。。因为人没有钱。还有因为这里有那么多罪所以很少人会来这里开什么什么铺头或者来这里做生意。所以这里失业的情况是很深的。。。因为他们有这样的那么绝望的人生所以生了这种嘻哈的文化。

To find out even more about this book then go to this website如果你想看这本书的资料你可以上这个网站: http://cantstopwontstop.com/

I’ve always said that hardcore and hip-hop have more things in common then most people think…again, by hip-hop I mean those artists and devoted followers to it that believe in it’s original purpose and meaning…我一早都说嘻哈文化(真正嘻哈)跟硬核有很多共同的信念。。。所以我对嘻哈文化有兴趣。。。当然我是说我对早期嘻哈文化有兴趣,不是这几年的商业-关于钱-关于说女-的没意思的垃圾。。。如果你看看真真正正嘻哈的文化你会看到很多人都是提政治的问题,社会的问题,种族歧视,和其他不公正的情况。。。他们都会说说这样的东西。。。跟硬核一样。。。

We’ve got a new song…so that brings our total number of songs to 18…it’s crazy…for this song we have a CRAZY idea…if it happens I think I will go to the roof of my building and scream and cry my ass off…hehehehehe…我们写了多一首歌!现在一共有十八首歌!哈哈哈哈哈。。。关于这首新歌我们有个很疯狂的注意。。。。哈哈哈哈哈。。。如果真的成功我不知道我会做什么!哈哈哈哈。。。可能出去亲我所见到的人!哈哈哈哈。。。可是我们大概知道应该不可能做不到。。。可是我们还有点儿希望了。。。哈哈哈。。。

Egas and Kent are in the midst of organizing a show for us in Macau!!! Oh my gosh!!! It’s been a fucking LOOOOONG time since we’ve played in Macau! The last time we played was at hush music festival like 3 years ago where the audience went so crazy when we played that they cut our show in the middle of our second song! hahahahaha…we’re just excited to play again!!!  So Macau friends and supporters – we’re coming for you! :-) 我们的egas和kent现在开始安排我们在澳门演出!!!应该是八月中!!!挺期待再去澳门演出。。。我们上次是差不多三年前了!当时的经验不是太好因为我们玩的时候观众挺投入 – 可是搞那场演出的人突然很怕所以我们玩第二首歌的时候他们已经叫我们停。

这次没有什么可以控制你们!!!哈哈哈哈哈。。。给我们看看你们怎么样会疯狂!哈哈哈哈。。。

SICK OF IT ALL, MENSHENG门生,UNI-K

Sitting at home and watching an old documentary of the most important band in my life (besides King Ly Chee of course) – Sick of it All. This documentary came out a LONG time ago…I never realized that they had this documentary. But it’s great – even though it doesn’t cover until today’s Sick of it All, it still does a great look at their history…现在我在家里看着我人生的最重要乐队(当然除非荔枝王)的二零零一年出的纪录影片。。。当然对我来说这个纪录影片是十分重要的。。。对所有爱这个著名硬核乐队的支持者也是一样那么重要。。。他们有说乐队历史还有很多关于硬核文化的东西。。。十分好看。。。

For any fan of Sick of it All – this VIDEO is super important…

Today we want to wish good luck to our brothers in Uni-k and Mensheng as they begin their Taiwan tour!!! GOOD LUCK BOYS!!! KICK SOME ASS!!! MAKE US PROUD!!! :-) 今天我们想祝我们兄弟”门生”和“uni-k”加油!!! 他们今天开始台湾巡演!:-)我们从零四年没有去过台湾 – 演出。。。可惜了。。。希望尽快出新唱片可以过去台湾演出。

加油兄弟!!!玩的开心!!!

We all had dinner last night to say goodbye to them…I canNOT wait to play shows again…it’s driving me crazy…if it was up to me, I’d play a show tomorrow…我们全队(除非Ho)昨天晚上去了吃晚餐。。。我们说说话发现了我们全队挺想演出!!!很期待下次演出。。。如果明天可以演出哪我们十分ready…天啊!!!快到九月了!!哈哈哈哈。。。
