Well now that i feel i have done my part cross-referencing links and straining at Chinese characters its time to write lil something for my people. Its gonna be scary tonight for sure.. there was a tremor just now at 939pm and it last till 942. it wasn’t strong but if any of you have ever been in an earth quake the overwhelming feeling is helplessness and a fear of monstrous, cataclysmic forces.
I am spending the evening in the city, although my home is in the countryside …
some media have contacted me and i wrote something up earlier today. but what i wrote is irrelevant now that thousands are dead. we’ll see how the night goes. my friend Himmler from the 19thstep was in Dujiangyan when the quake hit. I hope he is all good. Have not been able to get through to him.
11:09pm: tremors continue into the night and i am with my Buddha and friends Hakim and Rachel. She hits up the tarot cards for luck and Hakim is chillin. No word from Himmler or my roommate Oliver. Phone lines are still down …
11:29pm: more tremors, making me a little dizzy and nauseous … rail lines across the nation are facing problems — from Harbin all the way down to Kunming, making any efforts more difficult … chemical companies and electricity plants have been hit as well.
1:57am: just had a 4.5 tremor. it keeps you dizzy. i was just interviewed by the BBC — they might get at me again about things. There is not much for me to say that is new, just re-hashing and adding on to stuff that i pick up in the news. the news has started to trickle in from china, but the outside world is now waking up and reacting. the death toll is now at 9600+ and Himmler’s phone is off. i am sure his ass is alright. if not: i get yer toys punk!
One thought on “No Sleep tonight”
