<p>i've got a gigantor redux of my trip so far in the works. i don't have time to type it here at the coffee shop, but its written already in my notebook.</p>

<p>suffice to say, its been so fucken amazing this whole weekend. it felt like this kind of thing [ hardcore / punk rock / vegan straightedge / whatever ] is indeed special and important. its felt very very 1996. in a good way.</p>

<p>more soon.</p>

<p>i'm going to pdx today. i'm alive and safe. thank you for your concern. i'll be in salt lake in a week or two. first is pdx, then arcata, then sf, then santa cruz.</p>
