Geez...I'm busy as a bee, but that's good. I'd rather be busy than twidling my thumbs in boredom.

I didn't get a chance to write yesterday since I was driving most of the day. I went to Sacramento with Miya to visit our distributor called MORDAM RECORDS. They are simply lovely people.

I love going there. It's this huge warehouse full of records and we always get a bunch of free music. I got the new pedro the lion, leftover crack, twisted roots, velvet teen. Remember.. FREE=GOOD

Stopped at IN N OUT BURGER and got a cheeseburger without the meat and grilled onions. Holy shmoly thats good stuff they have. Add a pink lemonade and extra crispy fries and wow. And it's so healthy. Well, not really, but anyways.

Headed back home and got a call from a friend named Julie. Hadn't talked to her in a long time, but she was very emotional and was having a hard time talking to me.

She eventually was able to regain composure and tell me that she had broken up with her boyfriend and was hoping I could take her to her dads house in Pleasanton.

My first instinct is of course and that's what I ended up doing. But to be honest, I was like ARGGHHH!!! I just drove 5 hours back and forth to Sacramento and now I have to drive an hour to Oakland.

I was dying and feeling miserable,but how could I not help a friend. Isn't that what friends are for? But I had evil thoughts of calling and saying.. Oh man.. My car broke down. I'm so sorry.

Anyways, it's cool. I drove and drove for a total of 7.6 hours. Gas cost approximately $43. That's cheap eh? Today, there's more driving. I'm heading to Oakland to see the A's play at 7 PM, then I'm leaving to see TOYS that Kill play in Oakland and then when they're done I'm heading to another show to see GOOD FOR COWS.

I just saw GOOD FOR COWS play for the first time at Bottom of the Hill and they were amazing. Simply amazing. I wasn't able to stay for deerhoof. I really love that band, but I was so tired. ARGGHH!!

Anyways, I have a rash on my genitalia. That's probably more than you wanted to hear, but it itches bad and I'm pretty much an itcher, so...ummmm...yeah..

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.

THE 2nd ANNUAL ASIAN MAN RECORDS day w/the OAKLAND A'S!! NOTE:DATE HAS BEEN CHANGED!!!

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.
