Does anybody want to trade ASIAN MAN RECORDS cd's, shirts, etc.. for free stuff. What stuff you ask?? Basically anything...if you work in a restaurant, theater, any type of entertainment like arcades, batting cages, blah blah....anything. Let's trade!! I'm gonna be all over the US this summer. Just look at my tour dates to see if I'm in your area. So this trade goes out to anyone who can hook me up with free stuff. Again, let's trade... basically, anything we have at asian man is up for trade. And if you live in Santa Cruz... That's where I live, so if you can hook me up there, then double bonus

Itís day two of the living room tour journey. Weíre traveling on highway 10 with only 400 miles to go. Should be rolling into Phoenix at about 6 or 7 PM. Last night we ventured to the bizarre world of Hollywood exquisitiveness. A beautiful home in Sherman Oaks stuck out like a sore thumb as the house was painted bright red with amusement park decor surrounding the perimeter. Included was a trampoline enclosed by a steel bar dome. For those who went to the show, we can all agree that was an amazing experience.

Inside was more of the same. Chaotic decorations and a whirlwind of people moving about. It seems the owners have remodeled their humble abode into a sort of vegan collective. We tried ice cream made from Cashews. YUMM!!! Naked Tacos, Chick patties, and some great shakes. Their was a stripper pole in the middle of the room and tables made out of sunflower seeds. Environmentally correct eh??

As for the show I give it a pass. The problem was that half of the people there were part of the collective and were eating whilst I played. Deep in conversation, I tried to get them to shut up, but it would only work for short spurts. But overall there were some great people and I thought I played well. The experience was the best part.

So I donít have to repeat myself in the next 33 days, these are the main characters riding with me:
HIRO TANAKA-Genius friend from Japan who brightens up everyones day
CHRIS CANDY-Another fantastic human being who can do spot impressions of anyone. Some better than others
MONICA NAPPI-Photographer Extroardinaire and a helluva guitar roadie.

For the next 33 days we will travel across America in a four door SUBARU. Wish us luck on our adventures. We have two video cameras and we hope to document it all for a release some time in the future. Be well.
Peace, mike park
