10:32 AM

Ouch...No sleep=No fun. I was lying in bed for a good two hours wide awake. Trying anything. Even tried coutning sheep. It doesn't work folks. It just makes me angry at the damn sheep. My last recollection of time was 4:07 AM and sometime shortly after I was in LALA land. I awoke at 8:30 for a grand total of 4 hours and some odd minutes of sleep. Not enough, but I need to get stuff done before I head off to Chicago. So here I am rocking as hard as possible to get this newsletter done, get my email done, getting records in stores, practicing guitar and trying to remember my songs, paying my quarterly taxes, answering some snail mail letters, hopefully going to Cursive tonight, perhaps a short nap sometime this afternoon, food somewhere in there, and a bunch of other odds and ends. No worries.. I hope it doesn't sound like I'm complaining. This is nothing, but I do need to be diligent always or I'm useless in the long run. I just got a cd from Japan that has a best of POLYSICS that I think I'm going to release next year sometime. So my energy level is starting to rise due to their genius. Well, it's almost Halloween. Any suggestions for a costume that will be easy to put together? Email me. mikeasianman@aol.com

Peace always, Mike Park
