In minutes I am heading to the airport. I'm going to LA to start a string of shows. I slept about 3 hours last night. I went to San Francisco to do a radio interview with Fat Mike at a local commercial radio station called LIVE 105. This experience solidified my hate for the mainstream music business and the underlying politics and bullshit that goes along with it, but I played the game because I felt their was an important message to be shared to a large market and felt my voice was one that could articulate the punkvoter cause to perfection.

To be honest, I was a bit nervous at first. I'm not sure why? Hmmm... After finishing the show, I was dropped off at Fat and then went into the city to meet with a friend to eat veggie cheese steaks. For some reason I felt drained beyond belief and could only think of sleep. I headed back to the south bay and the hour journey felt like 10. I physically slapped my face throughout the drive, as to not fall asleep. Argghhh!!

Well, I made it home ok at around 9 PM. Set my alarm for 10PM and took a nap. It was tough waking up, but finally got my body moving and started packing for my trip. Headed over to my moms house to do some work and stayed up til' 3:30 doing work. That's fun eh? Ok, I better get going. I'll see you at the shows hopefully. Please say hi if you see me.

Peace always, Mike Park
