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.
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.
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.
