Where the heck am I? Well, the answer to that is beautiful Petaluma, California. In the living room/family room/break room of the Grizzly Studio location. It's here that I'm finishing off the last bits of the BRUCE LEE BAND ep. Only 5 songs, but that's all I could muster up right now.

I slept over at Steve Chois house, who lives in Santa Rosa, just 23 miles north of here. We drank tea and watched the Office. He likes to smoke herb and showed me this thing a ma jig that's some kind of vaporizer. A friend of his invented it and got a bunch of money for it. Anyways, he told me that THC is released at a lower temperature that burns the plant, so you can get high without smoking all the bad carcinogens.(Did I spell that right?) Anyways, that was a weird thing to experience.

My head has been throbbing in pain for the last 37 hours, but a strong dose of nightime Tylenol has me smiling big. I'm being called upon to hear to do something, so I better get going. Be well.
Peace, mike

PS-I've been trying to come up with a contest for the punkvoter tour that I'm doing with Anti-Flag and this is what I've come up with. For each show, I'm going to give away 2 tickets to one person. All I ask in return is that you buy my record. It's pretty selfish on my part, but this way I'll be able to save you money on tickets(you'll save around $25) and I'll get to share my music. Already have my record? Well, give it to somebody as a gift. Sound fair? I hope so. Here's a list of all the dates for the tour:
18th-Portland, Or @ Roseland Theatre
