这几天真奇怪WOW – WHAT A CRAZY COUPLE OF DAYS

It’s crazy…the internet has really gone nuts lately because of a certain things going on. Most of you outside of Hong Kong and China have no idea what’s going on. But I can tell you it’s just the usual 这几天网上的情况真疯狂了。你们香港/中国外面的人可能不知道发生什么事。。。但是我可以跟你们说也是那个问题:

A band i have never met, never talked to, never had a conversation with, don’t know the members of…have written a song about me. the lyrics are literally FUCK RIZ and then because they are very clever they are trying to rhyme the words HARDCORE in Cantonese and because they’re SO smart, the best they can do is rhyme two cantonese words 黑哥 which sounds like “hek gho” kinda like “hardcore” but literally means “black” “brother”. 又是一般我从来没见过,从来没有跟他们聊过,从来没有跟他们有什么沟通过,的人选择了做一首歌讲我。他们的歌词是(我不是骗你 – 他们的歌词真的是这样):”FUCK RIZ”然后这个挺聪明挺厉害的乐队想广东话押韵这个英文字“hardcore”。他们作词非常厉害 – 你知道他们怎么样押韵这个字?他们写了

“…hardcore…
fuck riz
fuck that 黑哥”

我一看他们这样写我当然发火了 – 有人攻击我不是新的东西呢,很多年有人攻击我了。但是这次写了颜色”黑”然后“格”所以我第一反应就是他们歧视我。

之后才知道这位笨蛋就是想不到怎么样押韵hardcore。真笨蛋。他们用了“黑哥”还想不到他人一看到会有什么反应。当然挺多人会以为这个乐队是那么笨蛋会歧视另外一个人的种族和皮肤的颜色。原来他们就是一个挺无知的乐队,挺小朋友,挺容易给一般废人影响他们。

来到我第二点:

从我第一次明白硬核文化到现在我会继续信硬核的一个很重要的信念 – 就是无论如何,有什么东西发生最重要就是用自己的energy出去研究下什么是真理。。。任何情况的事情,都需要我们自己出去用我们自己的眼自己的耳朵去看和听真话。我到现在都是一样 – 一开始想歌词我会花很多时间自己出去研究一首歌的题目。我试过看很多不同的报纸(看不同记者的角度),看电视,出去自己访问经过这件事的人听他们的心声。这样写歌词之后才可以影响他人开始想一想一个题目。我的意思当然不是想影响他人有我一样的看法 – 就是给他们听一个看法然后希望他们会自己去研究然后建立他们自己的看法。

I have nothing to say about this situation. I have no idea what to say about people who don’t think it’s important to contact and communicate with a person and find out for THEMSELVES what is the truth. 所以我现在不知道还可以说什么。关于这样的人 – 这样的无聊的人。。。我不知道我还跟他们说什么。他们人的性格已经跟垃圾一模一样没用。。。我还可以他们说我道理吗?

To me, the key to hardcore is always searching for the truth. Before I write any songs I always love reading and researching the topic that I’m writing about so I can write intelligent lyrics that will allow people to think about something. Writing lyrics that my 6 year olds in my classroom can also write is probably not going to have much of an impact on the listener.

Any so-called “hardcore” band or supporter of “hardcore” that simply listens to what other people say, listen to rumors, and base their whole argument on what other people say WITHOUT actually trying to find out the truth for themselves – is just an idiot.

这般攻击我的人我从来没有收到他们的电话,或者什么沟通的方法来联络我。哪,他们怎么样可以写这样的歌词或者有这样的批评?哪他们有什么经历可以來證實他们的論點?就是他人说什么,他们就信?是吗?你们很厉害! :-) 我也听过在香港有个livehouse的人也挺不喜欢我。这个livehouse我从来没去过,他们的老板和工作人员我不知道,也不认识 。我就听过这个livehouse有挺好的设备,灯光也好,他们也有个房给巡演中的乐队可以睡觉!我听到觉得这样的地方是十分值得支持!!!挺开心有个地方会这样服务香港和港外的乐队。然后听到那边的人都不喜欢我,我觉得真奇怪。我不知道是不是真的 – 如果是真的那我当然非常失望因为我也不认识那般人。我没有跟他们说过一句话,哪他们为什么会有那么极端的反感呢?因为他们身边的人说我的坏话所以他们决定了就是真话?不会吧 -在这个时代 没有人那么天真吗?我还以为建立一个那么有希望的livehouse的人肯定是非常理性的。我希望这个不是真的。

To me, this band is just as useless as those few people in Hong Kong who like to get on the radio and attack me. As those people who like to destroy King Ly Chee…because all these people every SINGLE one of them are people that I have NEVER talked to or communicated with. I have heard that livehouse in Hong Kong called Hidden Agenda also hates me. I have no idea if this is true or not. I think they are a great place because they are trying to do something great for Hong Kong by opening a livehouse and even having a place for bands to stay when they are on tour. That’s incredible and I am so proud that HK had a place like this. But if they also hate me? I’m really surprised because I don’t even know who they are. I have no idea who the owners are and who is involved with Hidden Agenda. How can you hate me when I have never talked to you?

I just don’t understand how all of this possible just from playing music. That’s all we’re doing is playing music. Why do people have to cause so much trouble based on something so simple as music? 我就不明白 – 我就是想玩音乐,为什么有搞到那么浮渣呢?我们就是喜欢听音乐和玩音乐 – 真的是那么简单。为什么要搞到像中学一样那么无聊?

Weird…it has been a weird few days.

I want to thank the only person that I know that has come out publicly to defend me…I know people have said nice things on my facebook, but the people on my facebook are all people who know and like me so of course posting on my facebook is like preaching to the already supportive. this person is the first person in the many many years people have been attacking me to post something online for the whole world to see. You are a brave brave person my friend. I am so sorry for all the trouble your courage is going to cause you…我现在就是想挺谢谢我以为兄弟。就是那么多年只有他一个人有出来写一个文章支持我。我知道在我facebook有很多朋友来支持我,但是当然是我的facebook所以大部分的人是支持我的人。我这位兄弟不是在我facebook说的,他去了外面的网站说出来他怎么样支持和尊重我。我真想谢谢这个很有勇气的朋友。我也想说道歉兄弟因为现在为了你可能会受到少人的攻击。我真对不起兄弟。。。但是我真想谢谢你的支持,尊重和爱 – 最重要是爱。

Good luck to this band and to all the other people whose lives are so small and pathetic that they will spend their time and energy to think about me. 反正,这个广州乐队和其他那么废人我真想跟你们说 – 加油!你们这个态度的乐队和人真需要加油。

TIRED FROM WORK…

累死了。。。我昨天晚上差不多十点钟才回来了家。这样 – 我昨天上班上了差不多十四个小时。。。太累了。。。

我每天早上就是差不多七点一刻上班。。。我的classroom里有差不多二十个小朋友。他们全部是差不多六至七岁。挺可爱也是挺有心学怎么可以做好人。。。真厉害。。。

昨天下班之后去了辅导一个挺可爱的一年级的小朋友。这个小朋友有些问题所以他家人有找我上来他们家教多一点东西为了他可以在学校里找到成功感。他真努力学 – 虽然他有问题,他不想放弃。他很喜欢我所以真听我说然后会试试我所的东西。。。

然后辅导了之后再去了学校 – 差不多晚上七点钟到了学校。然后上了老师们堂挺一位很出名的教育学者教我们新的教书方法。。。他教我们教到差不多九点钟。。。然后离开那区回家有点远。。。所以差不多十点钟才回来了家。。。

现在可以睡几个小时然后再回学校开始第二天的工作。。。

累累累累。。。

如果大家想找个很有意义的工作 – 我真想推介做老师。。。如果你心里真想为下一代的世界可以更美丽,更开放,更好,那开始很少的小朋友学这样的性格真有意思。。。

HARDCORE – PUNK – METAL KIDS in Bangkok – see you soon!!!

BEEN BACK 2 DAYS

Oh my gosh…I’ve been back 2 days at work and I already feel like I haven’t had a holiday in many weeks. Our school has SO much pressure getting things done…if you work in a school you will understand what I mean. It’s just too much – sometimes they just need to let us teach, instead of pulling us out for this meeting, or that meeting, or having more and more professional development opportunities. I look forward to these things, but when it’s every other week and I haven’t actually had a solid enough time to try and APPLY any of the things that I’ve learned – really isn’t helpful.

Anyway…the kids have been great…they’re a little out of it but they’re getting back into the swing of things.

The only thing I’m greatly looking forward to in terms of music is the new Sick of it All album which drops April!!! Can’t fucking WAIT to hear this thing!!! I can’t wait until they upload a new MP3 from this record…

Bed time is calling…I’ll be at work until 9pm tomorrow!!! FUCK!!!

We truly are an Asian band with lots of love and support from people everywhere…don’t think we take any of this for granted because we don’t. We have worked hard but we are also lucky because there are tons of people (outside of Hong Kong) who know how hard we work and appreciate it and support it!!! 我真的很幸运有那么多亚洲人支持我们这个乐队。当然是因为我们也是以个非常努力的乐队。那么多亚洲人(香港外面)欣赏我们所有做的东西 – 为了我们的乐队,为了硬核我们付出的东西他们有留意然后有支持我们和尊重我们。。。真开心!!!真感激他人留意我们。。。谢谢你们大家!!!

THANK YOU GUYS!!!

Can’t wait to be playing back in Thailand man!!! SOOOOOOOOO excited!!! 太兴奋再去泰国演出。。。是一个很大的音乐节 – 我们现在其他的细节我还不知道。一收到马上会放在这儿。

We also announced that we have been invited by Poly Muso for this year’s AP! They’ve been inviting us every year but for the past few years we’ve been busy playing outside of Hong Kong. This time FINALLY we’ll be in Hong Kong and we can FINALLY play!!! 我们还可以宣布我们确定了玩今年的Poly U AP! 他们年年都会找我们可是这今年我们常是去了外国演出。。。但是今年我们是在香港!!! 其实 – 我自己不是在香港。。。

你看我那个礼拜的日程:

Actually, I’m not in Hong Kong that week.

Look at my schedule:

April 1四月一号 – my girlfriend and I are going to take a 23 hour train ride from Hong Kong to Beijing我跟我女朋友将会从香港上火车去北京 – 一共是二十三个小时. April 2 四月二号- we arrive in Beijing and I get to stay for one night and even watch a show maybe我们四月二号会到北京。。。当日会过一个晚上 April 3 四月三号- I need to get on a plane and fly straight to Bangkok to play the show 第二天我会很早再上飞机直接飞去曼谷为了那场演出。。。 April 4四月四号 – I fly back to Beijing to be with my beautiful girlfriend四月四号会上飞机回去北京。。。 April 10四月十号 – I fly from Beijing straight to Hong Kong to play Poly MUSO AP 当天我会上飞机回来香港为了Poly U AP的演出!

I love it…it will be expensive for me to play that Bangkok show because I will be in Beijing at the time. But King Ly Chee is my life…I will do anything for this band. 我真喜欢这样的情况。。。我还是一位年轻人所以我不想浪费我的时间。。。我有什么能力做好自己的乐队,我不会浪费。当然从北京特意去曼谷为了一场演出会点贵,但是我为了我自己乐队什么都行做。我永远不怕幸苦。

Good times!!! We can’t WAIT to show you the new shirt designs!!! :-) It’s all about our friend Doyle of the Filipino company Killapinas who is helping us out and getting these designs done!!! 很期待给大家看我们新t-shirt!!! 非常想谢谢我们兄弟菲律宾Killapinas的朋友: Doyle!!!
