"The most anticipated release of the year"-Spin Magazine
Actually, I just made that up. But hopefully some of you are excited for the new record and will buy it. Word of mouth promotion is all I have to go on. Tell a friend. :)

ATTENTION:HELP!! If you happen to live somewhere along the coast of the PACIFIC OCEAN. Anywhere from Olympia to San Diego and can let a group of about 12-15 people sleep over, then contact me at We have sleeping bags and can camp in your backyard. The situation is as follows:PLEA FOR PEACE BIKE TOUR is going to camp along the coast, but geeez, those campgrounds are a lot more expensive than I thought they would be. To save a bit of money, maybe some of you live close by and can help us out. Here is an itinerary of where we are riding, so if you live close to any of these locations, please please let me know if you can help out. Peace, mike park

Up and at em... Today is recycling day, so the sound of garbage trucks beeping, raising/lowering their thingy...(You know what I'm talking about) has awoken me. I'm so sore. I'm typing with my eyes closed to pretend I'm still asleep and enjoy the game of being asleep and working at the same time and to see if the complete unconsciousnes of my being can still function and you know what? I think i can.

It's about two minutes later and I'm awake. I just took a break to drink some water. The Oakland A's are my very favorite team in the world. Oakland is a small market. They can't compete with the NEW YORK, BOSTON, LA markets. They have no money. They only draw 20,000 people per game and though I would shit my pants repeatedly if that happened at my shows, this is a break even venture for baseball. So they are stuck with no name young players, but once those young players become stars they leave for bigger money, which makes sense. But somehow Oakland always seems to compete and make a run for the playoffs. It's mind blowing and the A's throw such amazing ticket deals, that I don't mind not having the big stars. We have players like SCUTARO, ELLIS, JOHNSON, SWISHER, KIELTY and the YANKEES have JETER, MATSUI, AROD, GIAMBI. Perhaps you have no idea who either set of players are, but for the sports fan, you know what I'm talking about. And why in the world am I talking about this???? Come to think of it I have no idea?? Please forgive me.
Peace always,
Mike Park
