Iím behind on my writing. DOH!! letís catch up.. Sunday was Bamboozle. It sucked. It reminded me of Warped Tour which I am pretty sure is the definition for hell. I ended up having my set moved about 3 times and finally played a ten minute set sometime around 5 PM. It went ok, but I think a lot of kids missed me because they didnít know where I was playing. Oh well. At least there was free food. I went back 4 times, so I win.

We left for NYC in the morning and parked the bus in Seacacus, NJ which is about 5-10 minutes from Downtown. The weather finally cleared up as I met up with my friend James outside of Madison Square Garden. We went to a Cuban restaurant for lunch, costing me about $15, but ya know... sometimes you got to spend more than the dollar menu prices. I had a corn on the cob and fried plantaines.(Spelling?) Plus some beans and rice. It was pretty good. The place was packed, so they must be doing something right.

I had to figure out how to get back to NJ using public transportation. For those who know me, thatís always a challenge cause I get scared easily. Not scared in the sense of Iím cowering in fear. Scared that Iím on the wrong bus or train and Iím doing something wrong. But after walking 30 blocks from 6th and 12th to 42nd and 8th, I got on a bus that took me right to the hotel. I was pleased with myself.

The rest of the evening was spent doing laundry and just catching up with work related stuff. Yeah, Iím a rock star. NYC has good looking girls. That is all.
Peace,
Mike Park
