tomorrow is the BIG day for us!!! we’re so excited to be playing with the new KLC line-up…even though its only 4 songs…we’re definitely happy that our first show with this line-up is in Macau. the last time we played there it was amazing…super passionate and excited kids…unfortunately its only 4 songs… :-( oh well…maybe we can always go back for our own show instead of playing these festivals…

then after this show…we’ve all decided its time to start writing songs!!! woohoo!!! can’t wait…anyone that knows me knows how much i want to keep writing and writing and writing…that’s all i want to do. i HATE practicing old songs…hahahaha…

found out some stupid news from the place i work in…i was hoping that with my degree done (whenever that happens), and the fact that i am an alumni of the school, and have been TA-ing there for the past 4 years, that it would help when i applied for a teaching job. but my principal pretty much shot me down (albeit, in a very very nice way) yesterday which kind of sucks. but she was trying to be very honest with me and the fact that i haven’t actually TAUGHT yet makes it VERY difficult for her to hire me.


more lovely stuff…

our bro Hang’s (ex-Guan 36 bass player, ex-Hardpack bass player…) new punk band Unjustified Yoke (UY) will be playing their first show on saturday…they were supposed to play sunday and we were all going to run over to LLNR to watch them after we got back from macau…but they’ve been switched to saturday, much to our dismay…but for those of you who are going to be in HK on Saturday then go check them out!!! they’re playing at 7pm! i haven’t seen him on stage since he played for Hardpack man!!! damn – that was like more than a 1 year ago…too bad i’m still going to have to wait another month probably to see him…but its going to be rad when it happens! :-) compliment him on his new bass :-)

a report came out from the US intelligence office that the war in Iraq has caused and given birth to a new breed of terrorists – people who are so pissed off at the US invading Iraq that they have joined terrorist organizations. ANYONE ON THIS PLANET COULD’VE TOLD THE STUPID US GOVERNMENT THAT THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN!!! how could they have NOT known that this was going to happen? of course Muslims from that part of the world were going to hate the US even more…so now, even moderate Muslims are probably taking a harder stance against the US. that country is run by the stupidest people on this planet. a moron running the world’s most powerful country spending billions of dollars on military and arms and crap like that while people are starving all over the world.

dude…i had such an awesome day yesterday…had band practice using this new gear that i bought over the weekend and my guitar sounds so much frickin’ better. thank god…about time if you ask me. i know a lot of people liked my guitar sound…but i haven’t been happy with it in a long time. anyway, with my new gear things sound so much better…for me at least…

then hung out with G and went all the way out to Lamm Island because an old friend, pranjal, was celebrating his birthday at his house there. it was an awesome fun night! he’s vegan so they had like all this vegan food out…he made this amazing vegan chocolate mousse and i’m telling him he needs to start selling that stuff! cause its so good! some of the best most healthiest stuff i’ve eaten in a long time.

dude – i think my air-conditioner in my room is messed up…its spewing warm air. sucks…at least the weather is getting cooler so that’s a good thing…

okay – going to bed…seeya…happy birthday pranjal!
