Hey Hey...I'm playing a show on October 20th at the Knitting Factory in Los Angeles on October 20th with Kevin Seconds. Would anybody be willing to make some flyers and post them around the Los Angeles area? If you can help out I'll give you a copy of my new record for free and some other neat stuff.

Secondly, to my brothers and sisters over in the UK. I'm looking for a huge favor here. Would anybody be willing to pick me up at London Heathrow on either the 10th or 11th of November and drive me to some shows on Nov. 11th-Nov. 15th. If you can do this, I will give you so much free stuff, plus I will give you free tickets to any or all of the Alkaline Trio shows that I am doing. Of course I will pay for gas and will be your best friend. Let me know if this is something that someone would be willing to do. Just shooot me an email at mikeasianman@aol.com

This is the lastest I've slept in since.....?? I can't even remember. But it feels good to be able to just sleep. Yesterday I did a radio show and it was a fun experience. Dicky Barrett is a master of the radio waves. What I learned is that most of the stuff wasn't even live. They edit everything before and then play it to fit the show. I believe perhaps 10 minutes of the 1 hour was live. Interesting. One dude called in and called Dicky a sellout and Dicky just led him along on a leash. The guy called back and Dicky said "HOLD ON, I'M PUTTING YOU ON THE AIR". The guy had no idea. It was amazing. The arguments this guy had to why DICKY was a sellout was more than amusing. Well, it seems
as if his morning show is doing quite well. Good for him.

Next up was WESTWOOD ONE, which is a syndicate station for many many many different stations. Quite different than the Dicky show. It definitely had a more NPR approach and Staycie(The interviewer) was well researched on my music and my mission. It was a good interview. We then shot straight to Anaheim to beat traffic. A power nap in Chris Candy's car put me in high spirits as we ate lunch at SUBWAY sandwhiches. We both agreed without any remorse that we love SUBWAY. It's delicious. We then headed over to the book store and I found a book about DEGRASSI HIGH. But because I don't buy anything I tried to read through it at the store. Man, that Degrassi franchise is getting huge and none of the actors are making any money. Poor kids. Poor SPIKE. And then it was off to another bad movie. My movie selections lately have been getting worse and worse. We saw a horrible flick called the HISTORY OF VIOLENCE. I can't even begin to explain it as it made no sense. What started very good, ended very bad. Oh well. $7.50 matinee price down the drain.

Final destination, the Chain Reaction in Anaheim. The bike riders looked so tired. Everybody was dragging just to make it to the show. I was rested and kind of felt bad for Matt Embree as he was about to embark on a 1 and a half hour set in blazing heat. GEEEZ. Afterwards he told me it felt as if he were going to die on stage. Also, to the guy who bought 6 cd's. I lost your card. Can you email me please...... Ok, everyone be well. We're headed over to Seal Beach for some fun in the sun. Be well.
Peace always,
Mike Park
