Holy shit…Parkway Drive is 4 days away!!! THAT IS AMAZING!!! Can’t wait…I think that feeling of anticipation has been missing in my life for a long time since we haven’t played a show in so long. I miss playing shows but what can we do…April we’ll be playing some shows so we’re very excited about that…还有几天然后到parkway drive在香港演出的日子！！！太兴奋了！！！这个很期待东西的感觉真的很久没有感觉到了。。。是因为我们很久没有演出。。。可是我们快到四月份。。。在四月份我们会几个演出。。。所以当时可以再感到期待的感觉。。。
We hope you’ve bought your tickets already!!! Records Rendezvous has already told us that Parkway Drive CD’s have been sold out there…so that’s pretty cool that so many of you are supporting Parkway Drive by BUYING their music and not just downloading it for free. 我们希望你们已经买了你们的门票！！！一间cd店说他们已经卖完了parkway drive的cd!!! 真的特开心大家会用这样的动作支持一个乐队。。。你们选择买他们的cd给他们感觉到香港人的支持力。。。大家可以免费下载他们的音乐。。。可是你们还是用买他们的作品支持他们！真的特好了。。。
When I get home I’ll be uploading some photos of us in our studio and a short video of Mike recording drums…good times good times…
It’s 12:40am on a Saturday night and I’m still in the bandroom by myself…is it weird that I’m more comfortable here then at home?!?!?!? hahahahahahaha..现在是晚上的十二点钟左右可是我还在我们的studio…是不是很奇怪吗？我觉得我们的studio是比我自己的家更舒服！哈哈哈哈。。。
I went to Shenzhen over the weekend and because the STW boys have been in our room so often I bought a huge series on the Chicago Bulls especially for them…right now I’m watching the 1992 finals of the Bulls vs. the Lakers…SOOOOO awesome to be watching this again right now…
Awesome article about skateboarding in Afghanistan!??!?!?! 阿富汗也有人滑板吗？！？？！？！你快看这个报道！！！ http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/26/sports/othersports/26skate.html?_r=2
Ladies and gentlemen大家好。。。
It brings me great pleasure to bring you an interview with our temp…Mix Masta Mike (aka Tickle Me Mike)…今天我很开心带给大家看看我们临时鼓手的新作的访问。。。就是我在我们band房访问他。。。
KLC: Hey Mike, I heard you recorded drums for our new song “Time Will Prove today”. How did it go? Mike听说你今天录完了我们新歌 “Time Will Prove”！录成怎么样？！？？！
MIKE: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa – are you going to write that dude?! It was hard! 啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊。。。你真的会写吗！！！啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊啊。。。很难。。。
KLC: What do you mean? 什么意思？
MIKE: It was difficult。。。就是不容易
KLC: And by that you mean..你这样说的意思是？
MIKE: It’s complicated…很复杂。。。
KLC: So by that I take it you mean it was tough? 哪你的意思是很难？
MIKE: (laughing uncontrollably…tummy jiggling…笑到他疯了。。。哈哈哈。。。)
KLC: You are the official first drummer to record at the SFS studio. How do you feel about that? 你知道你是我们 “由零开始”录音设的第一个鼓手录鼓！你觉得怎么样？
MIKE: It was great…是很好玩。。。
KLC: Dude this interview B L O W S…thanks for your time Mike – NOT! 大佬这个访问挺无聊！哈哈哈哈。。。不想继续做！哈哈哈哈。。。
Okay…anyway…yes, Mike recorded drums for us yesterday and it was SICK!!! Glenn was over too messing around on my facebook the bastard and he slept on the couch after eating like $50 bucks worth of McDonalds! 反正昨天ｍｉｋｅ有帮我们录我们新歌。。。录的挺好！！！很期待给大家听听。。。我们另外的兄弟ｇｌｅｎｎ也在我们ｂａｎｄ房。。。可是他在ｂａｎｄ房就是吃吃吃吃吃东西。。。不停吃东西。。。他去了McDonalds买了差不多五十块多的食品！然后他吃完了就在我们sofa上睡了觉。。。
Can’t wait til all of you hear Mike’s recording!!!
Also – STW and KLC are going somewhere truly special in April…holy shit – that sounded so gay (not that there’s anything wrong with that!)…我们将会通知大家四月份我们跟stw会出去一起演出！！！挺挺挺兴奋！！！就是ho的第一场演出！！非常期待他跟我们上台。。。can’t wait!!!
Okay I’m out…
We’ll make the announcement to where STW and KLC are playing a show together in April! It will be the first show with Ho playing bass!!! WOOHOO!!!
The new year started well for me! Last night I was in the bandroom and I went to grab a drink from the fridge…I pulled it out and found out that there were TWO straws attached! hahahahahaha…I brought it back and showed everyone and they all thought that this was a sign that this was going to be a good year for me! So then we gambled last night – Brian, Ho, Ming (Brian’s pretty much brother hahahahaha) and myself. After they taught me a few new games – I ended up winning 20 bucks! And it was 20 RMB so if I convert that to HKD it was even more! hahahahahaha…新年的第一天过得不错！！！昨天晚上我在我们band房去了冰箱拿一个柠檬茶。。。拿了之后发现这个柠檬茶的盒上有两支吸管！我给大家看看然后他们马上说这可能代表我这一年会过得很好！哈哈哈哈。。。可能是我自己有这个感觉。。。反正，我们赌博的时候我赢了二十块钱！真的不错。。。哈哈哈哈。。。还是二十块人民币所以如果我去银行换二十块钱他们会给我二十多块钱港币！哈哈哈哈哈。。。
Good times good times…这样过这几天真的不错。。。
Okay – for all those bros that we know who are having a hard time getting with that one girl that they think they’re destined to be with – please call Ho. He is THE MAN!!! Trust me – I don’t know anyone that is as fast as this guy!!! HE IS THE MAN! okay。。。就是跟我们的好兄弟说 – 如果你们有问题求他最喜欢的女人那快点打电话给ho。。。他是非常厉害！ 哈哈哈哈。。。挺厉害。。。
New Thursday song is up now…pretty good: http://www.spin.com/articles/exclusive-first-listen-thursdays-armed-forces
Can’t wait to see what tomorrow is going to bring me…hahahahahaha…
Happy New Year everyone!!! Last night Ho, Terence, Glenn and I hung out in our awesome bandroom watching old old OLD videos…I found an old video of me playing a show in 1993…this was my last year in high school but all my friends had already gone to university. All my close friends were a year older then me so they already graduated from high school…so in my last year in high school I hung out and became friends with a whole different group of people who were ALL awesome people. Anyway, some of them could play music so we got together and played a show covering some songs. Hahahhaha…I totally forgot the songs we covered until I watched this video! We covered “Are You Gonna Go My Way” and Rage Against the Machine!!! hahahahahhaa…in 1993! Pretty funny…the video is in our bandroom so if you ever come over to our room you have to check it out…恭喜发财大家！！！心想事成。。。龙马精神。。。万事如意。。。新年进步!!! 希望大家的新年会玩的开心和达到你想达到的东西。。。
昨天晚上我，ho, terence,和glenn去了我们的band房看看挺舊的录影带。。。我在家里找到一个挺舊的录影带。。。是我1993演出的一个！哈哈哈哈。。。 1993至1994年是我高中学的最后一年。。。那时候我真正的朋友们已经毕业了因为他们全部是比我大一年。。。所以他们已经毕业了然后离开了香港去外国读大学。。。所以我这一年有新建立的朋友们。。。他们也是很好人。。。有些人有玩音乐所以我们开开心心开了一个乐队玩些歌。。。在这个录影带里看到我跟他们cover几首歌！哈哈哈哈。。。有Are You Gonna Go My Way和Rage Against the Machine一首歌。。。哈哈哈哈。。。
可是我想找我91至92年的录影带。。。因为那三年我有跟几个挺metal乐队演出。。。我们有cover Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax, 等等。。。然后也有写自己的歌。。。可是我不知道那些录影带是在那里。。。
Our brother Richie is out of the hospital and safely recovering back at home! Good things are happening at the start of this brand new year! 我们的兄弟richie离开了医院然后已经回了家！！！太好了。。。

First of all…my brother is recovering in the hospital SUPER well!!! It has been amazing to see how one of the funniest dudes I know can get back on his feet after such a harrowing experience so damn fast! Even the doctor was like “Holy shit…that was fast…” when discussing his recovery…第一件事。。。我们的好朋友上个礼拜四进入了医院。。。他这几天的进步挺好！！！所以特开心。。。他的一生也说他愈得特快所以大家可以放心。。。
We’ll see you back soon homeboy!!!

Remember to get your tickets!!!
Two days ago yet another stupid idiotic person decided to go driving after he was drinking. I don’t understand how selfish people can be…it is beyond my understanding why someone would be that selfish and ONLY think about themselves to actually get behind the wheel of a car after they’ve been drinking. What makes them think that they have that much control and power over alcohol that they can actually drive a car or operate machinery while drunk? 两天前一个特自私的人喝醉酒之后出了开车。他开车的时候突然控制不到他的车然后撞到一个公共车。。。公共车里面有六位人准备上班。。。这六个人全部给他的撞死了。。。那这位喝醉的人呢？他没事。他杀死了六个人可是他完全没事。
The saddest part…is that this stupid fucking driver crashed his container onto an oncoming taxi who was bringing 5 innocent people to their jobs first thing in the morning…the container crushed the entire taxi and all 6 people died. And what happened to the stupid fucking drunk driver? Nothing happened to him. He is fine.
Selfish piece of shit…and the penalty for him killing 6 people – is that his license will be taken away for 3 months, and he will be jailed for 10 years. 我真的不明白人为什么可以那么自私。如果你喝了就能你怎么可以觉得你可以开车？或者你喝了就之后怎么可以运转电器？你是超人吗？！？！？
For killing 6 people the only thing that will happen to you is that your license will be taken away for 3 months, and that you’ll be imprisoned for 10 years.
Do you think this is going to be a deterrent? Do you think that there will actually people out there who will change their selfish habits? 那么轻松的处罚怎么可以影响别人喝醉酒之后不开车！？一定不会影响人。。。如果处罚是更加严重就可以影响人开车之前想一想。。。可以想一想他们这样做值不值得与生坐监狱！！！
People caught drunk driving in which a death or deaths are a result should be imprisoned for LIFE…their licenses should be revoked forever.
Driving is a PRIVILEGE not a RIGHT! People allow you to drive because they put faith and trust that you will respect the rules of the road and that you will operate your vehicle with care and concern. 开车就是一个特權不是一个權利。。。你一收到车牌社会会相信你开车的时候会负责任。。。
To my brother in the hospital…you’re going to get through this brotha! We’re all here for you and ready to kick some ass when you get out…just think about it this way – now you have one MORE reason to be the sexiest person alive! When you get out all the ladies are going to be checking you out homie!
Stay strong – keep eating though! and get some sleep! – we’re here with you…they drew first blood not f**king me! …………………………………………………which one?
So Glenn finally got his tattoo last night…it’s an amazing piece of pride etched on to his body forever…anyone that knows Glenn (and all the STW boys for that matter) knows that he is a proud Filipino and so for him to get the Filipino flag on his leg is just awesome. And it’s not just a “flag” you need to see the full design that the tattoo artist Denis came up with…it’s off the HOOK…you can go to my facebook to check out the pics…soooooooo badass…
Gotta go to work…peace
A new day begins for Americans…a glorious day for them and hopefully this person and the country can unite together to right the wrongs of the illiterate buffoon they had leading the so-called “most powerful country in the world”. Powerful military maybe – but as we have seen in Iraq, Afghanistan and the recent Israel/Palestine conflict – a powerful military doesn’t result in success. Israel with their mighty military lost to Hezbullah in Lebanon, and recently against Palestine and the 3 weeks of destroying Gaza, look to see who still stands.
But this is about America…never before have I been actually excited about an American president. This is the first time EVER that I am actually excited to watch an American president on TV talked (because he actually SOUNDS like a president compared to the drunk-fratboy-hick that has been president for the past 8 years).
2 more days and the Chinese New Year holidays!!! woohoo!!!
Last night Ho, Brian, myself and our friends Billy, Terence went to play soccer up in Kwun Tong. It was so much fun – I’ve been running every few days for about 30 to 40 minutes, and so last night I didn’t get tired once even after playing soccer on and off for about 2 hours! Felt frickin’ good…昨天晚上我，Ho，Brian，和我们的朋友Billy和Terence去了官塘踢球。。。挺好玩。。。提了差不多两个小时。。。我这几个礼拜没几天会跑步跑差不多三十至四十分钟。。。所以昨天晚上我们踢了两个小时 – 我真的不觉得很幸苦。。。特好。。。。
Might become a weekly thing! Also, Brian’s brother-in-law is going to install our water heater in our bandrooms’s bathroom!!! Dude – it’s going to be so awesome to have that thing set up in our room!!! 我们可能每个礼拜会踢起码一次。。。brian的姐夫会帮我们安装一个水加热器在我们band房的厕所里所以我们以后可以在bang房洗澡。。。我们踢球是band房附近所以特方便。。。而且以后演了出之后回band房放低东西也可以洗澡才出去吃饭， 等等。。。
Yes – I cannot say enough nice things about our bandroom…it’s set up so nice…I have my little corner in our living room area. As soon as I sit my ass down in that spot – it is almost 100% guaranteed that I’m going to fall asleep! I LOVE it…我们新安排band房里面的东西真的让我们的房间舒服挺多。。。我们的厅里面有一个位子就是我的位子。。。哈哈哈哈哈。。。我在这个位子一坐下马上会睡觉。。。挺舒服。。。
We also watched one of the Resistance Tour DVD’s last night and I actually did hear Sick of it All thank a good friend of mine named Rob! The same guy that hooked me up with my kickass Sick of it All jacket! Pretty cool to hear his name come out of Sick of it All’s singer Lou Koller’s mouth! 踢完球之后回band房休息的时候看了这部Resistance Tour DVD…在这个dvd里终于sick of it all在台上谢谢我的朋友rob (是上个礼拜送给我sick of it all的夹克哪位。。。）真的很苦听到我朋友的名字！
Okay – its midnight right now…time to go to sleep…oh wait – shit I still have to translate all this into Chinese. Pok kai…hahahahhaa。。。okay。。。现在到晚上的十二点钟。。。挺累需要睡觉。。。shit – 等一下我还没翻译我所写的英文。。。shit…
Oh my god…what an INCREDIBLE movie!!! I didn’t know what to expect of this movie at all – of course I know that it just won some awards…but I really wanted to watch this movie without any ideas about what this movie was about etc. So when I bought the movie yesterday and watched it – I was COMPLETELY and TOTALLY blown away. The acting and the story were BEYOND incredible!!! The movie was directed not by an Indian – but that didn’t matter…the cinematography was phenomenal…the director really completely grabbed the entire feeling of the horrible lives the less fortunate have to live in on the streets of India…这部电影挺挺挺挺挺好看！！！ 真的不相信这部电影会那么好看！！！当然我知道最近这部电影赢了很多奖。。。可是我还没有看过什么试映。。。我真的喜欢没有什么注意开始看一部电影。。。
This is easily one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time and I hope that all of YOU will watch this when it comes out!!! IT IS ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT!!! 真的可以说很久没有看过一个那么出色的一部电影。。。我记得几个礼拜前我说 “葉问”也是非常好看。。。可是这部电影是比“葉问”好看挺多！！！快点去看看！！！
