"blasting crazy spirit and headed to the moon" -JK

Hey everyone,

fuck been a while. The subject is a text message i got from a really good friend. Dude was enjoying his crazy spirit record! Anyways the second press of the crazy spirit has finally been shipped out. You should be seeing it in many distros and labels. Many of these orders all went towards europe. The good thing is you can always count on some labels/distros in the u.s. who are rad and continue to support these releases by the punks! The past few months have been a real blast and I can only see more good times ahead. Mundo Muerto has been playing some really fun shows here and there. Thank you to all our friends who help us make it to these shows. Thanks everybody who makes it possible for us to get to the shows and be taken care of with food and shelter. This always reminds me of how lucky we are to have a great bunch of people/punks that always look out for each other. Keep it up. I also wanted to let you know that the BiMarks LP is nearly completed. As of the end of this week all we wait for are the covers and inserts to be completed over at the printers. This record is fucking awesome and I am excited for these guys to tour down the west coast. It's going to be a blast to see these guys rip up the wc. Anyways, more label news soon, for now i want to touch another subject. I have seen and heard a lot about how people/distros/labels keep getting ripped off by the same people in So Cal. It's a terrible shame that sometimes people cannot even reply to each other just to inform them of what is happening. Ignoring the fact that you owe someone money,records,shirts or tapes is not going to make it go away. I point out So Cal because I am from here and I do not rip anyone off. I'm not sure why people/punks are so afraid to call each other out. Maybe they don't want drama because there is enough of that shit already? This is our scene, we need to take care of what we have and not let any type of parasite suck the life out of what we call fun and home. No one should be afraid to call person/label/band or establishment out if they steal or do something shitty. Since when did the punk scene feel like they need to stay quiet about people who are shitty? When I get screwed over I have no problem calling you or anyone out. Some people have their own opinions about the things I say but I don't care and neither should you. Most of us are capable of doing what is best. If you are getting screwed over by shitty people/punks, call them out. It's the only way that people learn. I don't care how cool you are or how cool your band is , that all means shit if your a shitty person/punk and thief . I'm disappointed at how many punks are so conditioned to stay quiet because they are afraid they wont be "liked" by the punk scene anymore. If you think its wrong and you have a concern voice yourself out. Who cares what the punk "scene" thinks I would rather not be part of "scene" that houses shitty people. Don't get me wrong there is shitty people everywhere but I'm talking about our network of friends. If we don't voice ourselves out then we must be a bunch of hypocrites who listen to music and play in bands with lyrics that have no meaning or backbone. If your gonna be ok bullshit in our scene then your just part of the problem. I have been called out and it gave me the opportunity to fix my shit, trust me. Have a nice day and make it happy one. Remember all we can do is try, so think about it and it doesn't matter which side of the coin your on just square your shit up and keep having fun and respect for each other. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
