NOTE:If this is your first time coming to the Asian Man newsletter and are wondering what the heck this newsletter is??? Well, it's just my place to rant about anything, so for real news, etc.., please email:email@example.com and just request to be added to the mailing list and you will be sent news that actually pertains to the bands we work with.
Can you believe it's nearly November? This is ridiculous. 2004 just started and wasn't it just 1999.....? Incredible....Time flies by right in front of your eyes. But first and foremost, it's time for Halloween fun. 10 days to be exact. I've asked in the past and will do so again now....What should I be for Halloween? In particular I'd like to come up with a couple costume with Monica.(the woman who makes me smile) Something clever, but not impossible to be.
Example:It would be great to be PDiddy and J. Lo, but I just don't think it would work for a 6 ft. 2 inch Korean male and a 5 ft 2 inch white girl with a small booty. But any suggestions would be much appreciated.
I've been filtering through a ton of odds and ends of the past. This fall cleaning can make for interesting reflection on years past. I've been doing some cleaning and ended up sitting cross legged for hours upon hours reading old letters, looking at old pictures, and going through cassette tapes. I was a big cassette tape collector. Actually, I think I'm one of the few persons who still have only a tape player in their vehicle, hence the excitement of finding cassette tapes from the mid 80's had a little more importance to me. I grabbed the GO-GO'S, Depeche Mode, ABC, Operation Ivy demo tape(bought at their show in 1988), Crucial DBC(long broken up ska band from Santa Barbara), and a bunch of other fun stuff to listen to in my van. Fun for me!!
The next few months will be the busiest of the year for the Asian Man work force, which is just me and Miya Osaki. Perhaps an intern will be needed. Hmmmm... Anybody living in the San Jose area? Want to help out? and not get paid? Sound fun? Lastly, I'm heading out to the UK on Nov. 12th to play 10 shows. If you live in England, send me an email and let me know where the good record stores, restaurants, used clothing stores, etc.. are. Basically anything fun you think I should check out, please let me know. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org Be well everyone. Smile big!
