I'm going to San Francisco tonight to see Deerhoof. Opening will be Good For Cows. It'll be my first time seeing them play live.

Did you know I like music? Maybe I'll dance extremely crazy no matter what. Even if there's nobody there and nobody is moving, I should just lose my mind. Shake my head and body like there's no tomorrow. What do you think? Hmmm... Probably not.

A friend of mine used to do that all the time. He would just go to shows and no matter how bad the band was he would just dance like a crazed maniac.

I would just go to the shows to watch him dance. And then for bigger shows, he would be right up front against the stage and would just stare at a certain member for the whole show without any emotion.

Well, a bit of emotion. More like an angry look with his eyes wide open. That was even more genius. I remember he would do it when NO DOUBT would play before they became super big, but still packed the clubs.

He would just stare at the bass player and would make him feel uncomfortable. The bass player would glance over at him every so often to see if he was still staring and YES...he would be. He would keep it going for the whole show.

Yes, I'm amazed by silly stuff. Anyways, I did nothing last night. I practiced guitar a bit and read, that's all. Be well..

Peace, mike park

PS-I'll be posting the following for the next few days, so if you've read this before go to sleep.


This year, the day will be July 19th vs. the Toronto Blue Jays. We will begin the BBQ at 5:00 PM at the far north end of the Oakland Coliseum parking lot facing the freeway 880. There will be a big red van with a 10 x 10 white tent that says plea for peace on it.

I'm gonna rent a generator and have punk bands play until we get told to shut down.(hopefully that won't happen) There will tons of Asian Man swag being given away, so bring a bag with you. If you plan on coming, I need you to email me at mikeasianman@aol.com

This way I will know how many tickets to buy(It should cost around $5 as I think I can get a group discount) and to know how much food to buy for the BBQ. The big problem last year was that so many people didn't RSVP that I was struggling with lack of food.

ARGHHH!!! So, there's the info.. I'll send more info. as it comes in. And I'll list the bands playing as that info. comes in.
